As Harry Potter begins his sixth year at Hogwarts, he discovers an old book marked as "the property of the Half-Blood Prince" and begins to learn more about Lord Voldemort's dark past.
Bill Nighy was hired to play Rufus Scrimgeour (Minister of Magic), but there was no place for the character in the film. Instead, the same role was reassigned to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010).
I killed Sirius Black!
In previous films the Weasley home is surrounded by trees, while in this movie it is located in the middle of a huge empty field, so many have wanted to label this change as a goof (even if this clearly is a deliberate artistic change by the producers). However, we must bear in mind that the residents at the Burrow are a family of _wizards_! Hence, the work of removing some trees (or even transfiguring?) and boosting the growth of crop in the course of a winter shouldn't seem far-fetched at all in that context.
The end credits take their shape from what look like ink spills, resembling the appearance of the collected memories when they are poured into Dumbledore's Pensieve.
