In the spirit of the holiday, ABC Family will give out special treats to Harry Potter's fans. The television network have announced that they will have a Harry Potter weekend from December 5 to 7, and to top it, they are going to air exclusive first looks at forthcoming "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" throughout the weekend's three-day extravaganza.

The exclusive first looks offer a discussion of the film's storylines by stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and Michael Gambon, and insider information. Other than those, they also include a sneak peek of never-before-seen footage of love running rampant through Hogwarts, a look into Tom Riddle's past and an introduction of Professor Horace Slughorn, Hogwarts' new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher.

As part of the network's "25 Days of Christmas", the special weekend itself will be filled with the airing of the series' first four installments from "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" to "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire". In the special extended version of "Goblet of Fire" world television premiere, viewers will be presented with deleted scenes which are not included in the original film version. The Harry Potter weekend schedule can be seen at Coming Soon.

"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" follows Harry Potter in his sixth year at Hogwarts during which the ever growing threat to the wizarding world by the evil dark wizard, Lord Voldemort grows even stronger by day. Directed by "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" helmer David Yates, it will see a U.K. and U.S. release on July 17, 2009.

The article says Horace Slughorn is the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, but actually, he's the new Potions professor, as Snape was given the DADA job.
