Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

With this cover I`m sure now comes the Hogwarts maxim into play: Never tickle a sleeping dragon.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

I seriously don't think that it is anyone in their Animagus form.

It has to be a real tamed Dragon.

Oh, could it be Little Hangleton? I reread HBP last night, and Little Hangleton is between two hills, isn't it?

Little Hangleton is bigger. This is a small village, Perfect for hiding and Fidelius... Godrick's Hollow...

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

Why would someone need to use a flying dragon in the first place?

1. Harry has not passed his apparition test
either this scene occurs before his birthday, or
they need to travle somewhere without being noticed by the ministry, or
he does not pass his test, which i find to be unlikely, which brings us to point 2
2. They need a dragon to reach someplace where
a. you can not apparate to (eg like hogwarts is protected) or
b. you need to get something that is in the sky, (like a horcrux?) or
c. somewhere where you've never been so you can't picture it in your head to get there. I find this to be the most plausible scenario- maybe they are indeed visiting Godric's hollow,a place where none of the trio has been.
3. The Dragon himself might be taking Harry somewhere
maybe somewhere remote, that only a dragon might know?

Maybe this is Harry's new pet like JK stated he would get. I like to think that his new pet will be Fawkes though.
Do we know what the 12 uses of Dragon's blood are?

You guys are all wrong. They're riding on Snape's back.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

maybe harr is wearing a dragon-hide jacket. although that seems a little tacky to wear dragon-hide clothing whilst riding a dragon.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

I don't know why so many are saying this but the dragon in the new illustration is definitely not Norbert. It looks Asian, elderly and its eyes are opaque not to mention its the wrong color. Location, I'm guessing Godric's Hollow. I also would guess they got the dragon from Gringotts somehow but I could be wrong on any of these counts.

Seems Jo took a page out of the Eragon series for this one. Maybe he's Glaedr's relative or something.: lol:

Might be possible, but then I don't remember Little Hangleton having any stream in the vicinity.

If you go by that, then it is a Peruvian Vipertooth.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

Ron, Hermine, harry and the dragon are all looking up in the same direction and hermione looks frightened...what could be ahead of them? Also, harry definately has a badage on his cheek.

Maybe one of them has to do with controlling a dragon...

The description sort of fits, though:

The House of Gaunt, HBP...so that they had a sudden, unexpected view of the whole valley laid out in front of them. Harry could see a village, undoubtedly Little Hangleton, nestled between two steep hills, its church and graveyard clearly visible. Across the valley, set on the opposite hillside, was a handsome manor house surrounded by a wide expanse of velvety green lawn.


You can see the Church, and over the river from that there's a large-ish house. Of course, I'd rather it were Godric's Hollow, too, seeing as we've been waiting to see that for so long

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

I posted this on the other cover art thread, the thing the strikes me of the Dragon is the horn, I must admit that it does fit the I find it hard picture the Trio in the South Pacific, I also remember that Krum was going to come into the picture once again, Bulgaria borders with Romania, it may very well be a Romanian Longhorn
