Okay, those profoundly disappointed, raise your hand. Ye gods. The difference between Dobby and Binks? Jar Jar actually looked somewhat realistic. Dobby looks like a ceramic figurine. And apologies to Entertainment Weekly, but that “jolly good yarn” is my personal favourite (though PoA comes amazingly close).

Get the rest of the sneak peak images (far more squee-inducing than this, I promise) from the EW website, joyously linked from Heidi’s LJ.

Anyway, despite the horrors of Dobby (I originally typed “Nobby” O_O;), I have good feelings about the CoS movie. Branaugh!Lockhart will be highly amusing and the increased levels of Percyness will be welcomed. Good stuff. Anyone else feel like starting a campaign to have Salazar Slytherin added to Mt. Rushmore? Viva el Aging Fanbase!
