anyone can point a reference to the part in book five/six where

the locket horcrux was mentioned...

in the context of sirius's house?


Well, it was in Book 5. They were cleaning the drawing room then.

Anyway, What happened to the Dursleys? I never thought that Petunia would want to go to Hogwarts too.

The deaths of Remus, Dora, Fred, Mad-Eye, Hedwig and even Snape saddened me. I loved what Molly did to Bellatrix though, the latter deserved it.

I got it on Sat., and I'm about half-way through. Pretty awesome so far, but also WAY more dark/evil than the last ones. And I won't say anymore than this, but WHY DO ALL THE COOL PEOPLE DIE?

The BIG an VERY IMPORTANT fact, that was clear to me, since the Horcruxes were revealed in book 6, is that Harry is also one.
You remember, what happened 17 years ago? Yeah, that was a cruel act. And what do we know about cruel acts and stuff? If you are Voldemort and if you are stupid, you create unwillingly a Horcrux :D.

Well, this book was worth its few €uros.

You know, I was going to ask the same question, and I think it might be Fleur and Bill daughter because Ted is 19 and Victoire could have been born around the same time.

6 hours of speed reading?? can you actually enjoy something like that? It's like eating an entire cake in 2 minutes and going... Yeah? I tasted it? :p


Anyways- I finished it last night :p stayed up till 5:30 reading^^ but wasn't tired at all since it was good the whole way through~


I don't really have any questions or anything, but I liked how they cleared Snape at the end. He really was good at playing his part... You loathe him, then felt ok... then back to hating... and now... respect. He really was loyal and played his part very well till the end (I didn't see why he did his protonus (or however you spell it) when he was talking to dumbledore in the painting... (perhaps I didn't read carefully)) but yeah~ no reason other than to show that his animal was the doe.

The 19 years later part seemed a TINY bit rushed... but it was nice to see :)

Well, when you have read these books as many times as I have, you pick up little tricks that Rowling uses which makes reading faster easier. Don't ask me to explain that any more because I may cause my brain to implode if I tried to...

Anyways, about 5 hours of speed reading and I did enjoy it.

@Njt I agree with you. The epilogue seemed rush to the extreme. I think it could have been longer and still been ok.

I loved the history with Snape. That was awesome. It cleared everything up from before the first book to all the little loose ends that still existed at the end of book 7.

yup i also tend to speed read on the exposition parts and the ones where it dragged on with paragraphs of descriptions. but i almost missed the answer to RAB when i finished book 6 because of something like that...and that's why i missed this one too....


Well, it was in Book 5. They were cleaning the drawing room then.


anybody care to point that one out more specifically (which chapter and page)? i don't want to browse again....:p


You know, I was going to ask the same question, and I think it might be Fleur and Bill daughter because Ted is 19 and Victoire could have been born around the same time.

although it involved some detective guesswork...:p i think that name is French and there could only be one source for that French name right? mystery solved! :D

you know i kinda got tired of Harry escaping death through some miraculous magical rules loopholes all throughout the series. he ought to become a magical lawyer because of that exploiting all of them! :p

I was kind of mad about the epilogue. We only found out that Neville was a teacher and we do not know what anybody else does. What about Harry? Did he become an Auror or is he Minister of Magic? One thing is sure, they all work in the ministry of magic.

And they referred to Kingsley as the TEMPORARY Minister, so in the end, does that mean he still holds the position or what?

I really enjoyed the book, it was absolutely fantastic!!! There are just 2 things that keep going through my head:

1 - Rowling didn't kill Harry, Ron, or Hermione, and she even gave them kids. Now, millions of fans will bother her to continue the story until the day she dies... I think it's likely that this will not be the last time we see Harry and his adventures...

2 - When the time for movie 7 comes, how are they gonna fit everything in said movie? This book had lots more content then it's predecessors, and it would take way more than the usual 2 and a half hours to cover it all.

Movie # 5 was the shortest movie out of all of them I belive. The thing that pissed me off was that Book # 5 was the longest book and they made it the shortest movie. So with book 7 with so many details, they better make it about 3 hours. Nobody will mind. Oh yeah, it might rated "R" for all these killings. XD!

Impel Down

are we safe to discuss the book here without the use of spoiler...???
anyway the character Snape didn't surprise me at all but the character of u-know-who and Albus Dumbledore surprise me very much.. u-know-who was such a coward and the way he die sux....

On the other hand i knew, Dumbledore's death was plan out but i didn't realize he was making so many moves ahead of u-know-who..

At one point in the story, i almost thought Albus was the true bad guy in the story and he fake his death which it turn out i was wrong.... and albus's past showed more of a human side in him (the imperfect side).. which i like..

I think it's ok not to use a spoiler tag because everyone that comes hear knows that there are spoilers. This is an official spoiler thread and the book is officially out so I think it's ok.

Well, I was not too surprised about about Snape either because a lot of fans already suspected what he was.

Dumbledore was dead in the movie but it's like he wasn't. He was still able to talk with with Snape in his office with his painting.

One question: Remember at the end where all the headmasters were clapping their hands for Harry Potter? Do you guys think Snape will have one as well?

Impel Down
July 25, 2007, 05:03 PM
Eh, probably not, since it seems like he didn't count as a real headmaster because of the Death Eater control thing, and he didn't really do all that much for the school.

yoniekai

anyway the portrait is just a figment of the person, like dumbledore entrusted some of his brain into the portrait but not all.

i was really touched by snape's tale. he's turned into my most hated to my idolized. im sure if they've heard of snape's tale of course he'd be honored greatly, without him the crucial plans of dumbledore wont succeed

Just read it last night to the eighth chapter. So far it's good, and keeps me want to read it more. It's actually hasn't been released yet in my country, and I'm planning to buy the official translated version, but curiosity defeats me and I deliberately grabbed the PDF version (the real thing) off the web. Still want to buy the official version though, when it's released. And just like Yoniekai said, it's strange knowing Harry Potter saga ends, no more Harry.

Dont get too techincal with HP..its magic..How can someone plant an imperioius curse and then walk away from them...possibly even letting go of their wand ??? Ultimately we should just enjoy the book for what it is rather than over analyze it... J.K. did a fantastic job of wrapping up a series in a fasion that will please alot of fans.. however some will never be pleased...It could be worse... some writers leave you hanging with so much that you go insane over the possible outcomes.

It's not me, it's the work Dynamic Dragon.

About the patronus of Snape, I think there are different ones. I think there are three type of ways you can use the patronuses.

Harry used his to attack dementors.

Kingsley used it to talk or [/b] warn

and Snape it to follow

This is just my opinion by the way.

I think Rowling portrayed a very important message through Snape: with love, you can be saved. Lily loved Snape like a brother and he loved her very much. Because of that love he was able to redeem himself from evil. Voldemort was never loved by anyone (Bellatrix's "admiration" doesn't count) nor was he able to love anyone, including himself, that is why he stuck to being bad.

Anyway, I am very curious about Dudley. What did he exactly see/feel when he was attacked by the dementors? I figured it must be really bad, because his gratitude to Harry was great (although not so expressed).

Well, it's got to be sadness, depression, lonelyness, and whatnot when he was attacked, same as everyone else. So, according to Rowling, she had intended to write what Harry, Ron, and Hermonie's jobs were, but couldn't fit it in properly. Ron and Harry, she says, were Aurors, and Hermonie was some magical law enforcement official or something.

wah!!! I just finished it last night. I've never tried to read so slowly in my life, but it didn't really work. Finishing that was like finishing Kenshin for me, I was totally blown away :XD

I love the way things turned out for Snape, I had a feeling that might be the case. (That he was really protecting Harry and that Dumbledore had wanted Snape to kill him) By the way, I do think his portrait will hang in the headmaster's office, because of what Harry said about him in the end, about the two headmasters, one of whom was a Slytherin and the bravest man he'd met. I would think Harry would want his portrait hung, and I don't think anyone would have a problem with that if he didn't.

As for spoiler tags, I agree with kadodo that they aren't necessary in this thread anymore. But please try not to post anything more informative in the regular HP thread about this book than, Ohmygosh it was so good I cried like a two year old Harry Potter FTW!!!!!!! Everyone has done a really good job so far not spoiling anything, so let's keep it up for those slow readers out there :amuse

yup, kadodo's right on this one guys. Please, if you have any links, spoilers, discussions, anything to do with book 7 beyond vague comments really, post it in the other thread. Assume that people in this thread have either not read or not finished it, and the spoiler thread is for those who have. I realize most of you guys posting in this thread are also posting in the other, but let's just try to be safe here :amuse

btw, I don't think it was lacking in the least. Rowling is not only an excellent storyteller, but she is an amazing writer, in the literary sense. I think my mom said it best when she finished the book: "She did it" :amuse

What I'm pissed about is Rowling said she couldn't bring herself to kill Mr. Weasley in the fifth book, yet she kills Fred, Lupin, Tonks, and a bunch of other characters who didn't really NEED to die!

PaperYomiko
July 26, 2007, 12:44 PM
Well, you could argue that no one needs to die, necessarily. Take Lord of the Rings for example, only one of the original nine dies. But as much as I wish Lupin and Tonks didn't die, I think it's actually very well thought out, and quite poetic, on Rowling's part. Kind of full circle, how Teddy's parents died, maybe not directly protecting him, but hoping to make his life better, and trusting him to the care of his godfather, Harry. Lupin obviously knew Harry would take care of him the way he, Sirius, and all James' other friends cared for Harry :amuse

July 27, 2007, 01:34 AM
i finished reading the book 2 days ago.. it was quite good until the epilogue.. the epilogue really turned me off..

i would like to comment to the deaths that happened in book 7

first of all, Rowling needs to kill some of the major character.. it would be quite unrealistic if they fought a battle and nobody dies.. the should be someone to die to make the story better.. and that someone should be important enough to make a good impact.. thats why percy and charlie didnt die.. if they die, nobody will feel sad or anything..

ok.. now goes back to the died characters

mad eye - although he used to be the best auror around, he already passed his time. i still remember when they fought in book 5, he lost! he also was cornered by a young wizard (i forgot the name.. barty something) who jailed him in his house.. so his death was expected.

lupin and tonks - this is the first time remus lost his battle, but for nymphordia, this is not the first one.. if one of them die while the other remained alive, it would be a bit problematic to raised young ted.. so both of them died.. it was kinda tragic, but dont worry harry potter the godfather was there to take care of young ted, didnt he?

fred - the weasleys are just too many.. so one of them should go.. and of course it should one of the twin, it is the only character that can give great impact to the audience but reduce the feeling of loss since we still got the other half..

snape - the best character in harry potter series.. when all men disgusted him, treat him like a traitor, he was alone doing his duty protecting all those people.. i hope he could die in more heroic way, maybe after a duel with voldemort, however i think he is heroic enough even without that :XD

dobby - it was kinda sad for dobby to died.. and he died in serving his duty, saving harry potter and co. goodbye dobby, we have a nice time with you.. however kreacher is here to lead the house elves in your place..

tom riddle - and we shouldnt forget our main villain, should we? it seems that this lunatic is so stupid, stupid enough to create another horcrux and kill it with his own hand without realising it.. yes he do have some power, but his snake head doesnt have any brain at all.. it seems that dumbledore cornered him in everyway in terms of power and brain. it was quite interesting how dumbledore read riddle just like a book, putting a spy under riddle's nose all way long for 17 years and he not realising it.. riddle does not realize that snape is a spy even when he killed him, not until potter told him in their last fight.. it was quite sad for the death eater to have a stupid leader like riddle..

peter pettigrew - his death was too sudden.. and it was not so stylish.. at least Rowling should make him go against Voldemort and fought him for harry's sake.. however he did let them go, so he did helped harry and co. at last..


that is just my opinion about all the major character that died in the book.. i know some of them are you fav. character, so i am sorry if my opinion is harsh or anything..

and the epilogue was really sucks.. i really really wanna know what happened to other charater as well.. luna, george, bill, arthur, kingsley, lee, chang, percy,.. i hope she would show it in the 7th film..

also from book 5

Harry tried his best not to think about the hearing while they emptied the glass-fronted cabinets that afternoon. Fortunately for him, it was a job that required a lot of concentration, as many of the objects in there seemed very reluctant to leave their dusty shelves. Sirius sustained a bad bite from a silver snuffbox; within seconds his bitten hand had developed an unpleasant crusty covering like a tough brown glove.

'Its OK,' he said, examining the hand with interest before tapping it lightly with his wand and restoring its skin to normal, 'must be Wartcap powder in there.'

He threw the box aside into the sack where they were depositing the debris from the cabinets; Harry saw George wrap his own hand carefully in a cloth moments later and sneak the box into his already Doxy-filled pocket.

They found an unpleasant-looking silver instrument, something like a many-legged pair of tweezers, which scuttled up Harrys arm like a spider when he picked it up, and attempted to puncture his skin. Sirius seized it and smashed it with a heavy book entitled Nature's Nobility: A Wizarding Genealogy. There was a musical box that emitted a faintly sinister, tinkling tune when wound, and they all found themselves becoming curiously weak and sleepy, until Ginny had the sense to slam the lid shut; a heavy locket that none of them could open; a number of ancient seals; and, in a dusty box, an Order of Merlin, First Class, that had been awarded to Sirius's grandfather for 'services to the Ministry'.

'It means he gave them a load of gold,' said Sirius contemptuously, throwing the medal into the rubbish sack.

As for the fight with voldemort at the end, it did seem anti-climatic but I was thinking the longer they made it the more unlikely it would seem. I mean, harry wouldn't be able to hold his own against him, so... it *had* to be something like that for the series to end. Sad but true~

and what hapened to the store? rowling could have made a passing remark at the epilogue that the store was going international and something about ceo and company president george weasley....;smile-big


oh and you forgot about

hedwig....man, even the bird gets killed off!!!

touched me the most (more than the human ones) since she was the most innocent character and it was already a given that a lot of humans will die and i was preared for that!......but not her!!!!!! :scry :scry :scry
at least my consolation was that it was peaceful and instant!! *sob*

LOL, I never thought there was a harry potter thread in Manga Helpers....

The book had WAY more deaths than I predicted or thought there would be (Some asshole said only 4 people died when I got my book the 2 day it came out...:mad )

The character development of Harry Potter was amazing to watch, and then the Ron & Hermione moment people were waiting for finally happened... I was expecting more interesting with the reintroduction of Victor Krum though..

The depressing death for me to cope with (if you can call it that, lol) is how Tonk dies looking for her husband and the most despressing part (again, if you can call it that) was when Hermy was getting tortured by Bellatrix.. This book finished amazingly.

I do feel guilty posting such severe infomation I'm giving away of the book, but nobody in their right mind would click this thread if they haven't read the book...

If they make a animation series of Harry Potter, then it probably won't resemble Anime at all, it would practically HAVE to be in the art style similar to Madam GrandPre'. She simply has made beautiful cover jackets that always made me wonder why they never thought of making a Harry Potter animation show.. Oh yeah, just as millions would love to watch it, millions are going to say it encourages witchcraft..:eyeroll

Of all the books, I really enjoyed reading Half-Blood Prince the most and The Deathly Hallows a Close Second. I love the darkness, mystery, and danger both books portray, especially how Half Blood Prince Second Chapter displayed & foreshadowed tension and betrayal right from the beginning.. The Deathly Hallows left me with another classic sleepless night like Harry Potter 2,3,4,and 6 left me with to find out what was going to happen next.

About the movies...For some reason, I just don't like the actor for Harry Potter... I don't know why, but I like the portrayal of Hermione, Draco & Ron, but I don't like the portrayal of Harry Potter, nor Snape for the matter. I know it can't really be "perfect".. I don't really like the movies that much, simply because even though there a lot of details they can't possibly put in the movie, there are some details they removed out that puzzle me...

Yeah, most of the deaths were all irrelevent, too. But, I guess if you think about it for a while, it makes more sense.

Well, even though you might disagree with me, I think Neville was one of the most courageous guy in the book. I mean, he tried to assemble mad people to continue with Dumbledore's Army and he even got punished for it by the new teachers using Cruciatus curse on him if he tried to do anything wrong and he did not get killed by the death eaters and he certainly killed the snake at end. So I think he did a lot.

First off

Goblet of fire was my favorite book

and the Deathly Hallows was second

I'm not too sure how to rate everything else but I liked them all.

Ron and Hermione are just perfect for their role. Daniel Radcliffe is alright but not that good.

However, I think the actor for Snape is just perfect as well, I actually think that he is the best one they could have chosen, as well as for Professor McGonnagall.

PaperYomiko
July 31, 2007, 01:29 PM
...and the bad guy in Die Hard and the sheriff of Nottingham... :smile-big

personally, I love Alan Rickman, I think he's perfect for Snape. The only actor who I think really doesn't fit is Radcliff for Harry. Probably because the books left me with such a strong image of how he should be, that I just don't see Harry Potter when I look at Radcliff. It always has bothered me that he doesn't have green eyes, too.

PaperYomiko
July 31, 2007, 01:35 PM
I don't know, I think I have to agree with Kadodo on this one. Neville's growth throughout the series is tremendous, and the 7th really does him justice. I also think it's cute how he always really looked up to Harry, and that is in part what inspires him to take over the role of troublemaking leader at Hogwarts once Harry is gone.

And you can't deny, the scene of him killing Nagini is pretty badass. I mean, his head is on fire and then he just pulls the sword out and doesn't even hesitate...I think it's perfect :amuse

I'll do my best. About 5 or 6 years ago, JKR published two small books (about 60 pages each ) to benefit a charity. I'm not sure of the details of how they were originally available.

Anyway, the books are Quidditch Through The Ages and Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.

They were written as if they were actual textbooks, with the Q book describing how the sport was invented and who the pro teams are, while the Beast book desbribes things like the different species of dragons (and the parts of the world they're from).

I think they were a good read. If you're a die-hard fan, then probably worth adding to the reading list. But, I wouldn't spend too much money on them.

What was cool about the 'textbooks' was that you could pick some details from the 1-7 books and identify a few of the animals/creatures in the story. An example would be the giant spider from book 2 "Aragog" being an acromantula, but not officially called one until book 6. (Another one is that Hermione's cat was something more than a cat.) Also, if you follow any pro-sport you'd probably enjoy the different Quidditch team descriptions and how they fit-in to their leagues. She did a pretty good job with that. I read them once and gave them to a younger cousin, but I've got a good memory for books I've read.

I'm guessing that it is not the Sorting Hat's power but the power of courage itself. Dumbledore said during the second book that "only a true Gryffindor can pull the sword out of the hat." Harry, at that time, didn't expect that to happen; in fact, the sword hit his head, and he momentarily saw stars.. :XD I think Neville didn't expect it either.

Since the four founders made the hat, it has special abilities when people of any of the houses are in great need. Since the sword was Godric Gryffindor's the hat was able to summon it to the Gryffindor student who needed it. I think the same would hold true for Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin students with of course comparable magical artifacts for their own houses as well.

I think your explanation says it the best, Neville really needed that sword at the moment and he did not even know what he wanted just that he needed something to kill Nagini. The Sorting Hat then came up with the sword of Godric Gryffondor.

Yeah, the money definetly went to a worthwhile cause. I just warned Kadodo about not paying too much since I'm not sure they're still available in stores and you might have to buy them off e-bay or someplace else (where someone may try to charge too much for them - with the profit going to them, not JKR's charity).

Which one is the right answer? Or is there an answer totally different to this one?

Harry survived simply because Voldemort had harry's blood in him (in the fourth book he used harry's blood to regenerate himself) therefore he kinda anchored harry to the real world. However harry had a choice if he would like to die or not (asked by Dumbledore). hoped that cleared it up :D

August 14, 2007, 08:03 PM
Oh yeah. I remember now, but I'm still confused because I do not remember the exact words of Dumbledore. I remember he said something like this: When Voldemort took Harry's blood , he changed the prophecy, but I do not remember the exact words (something like one cannot live without the other or something like that). Do you have the book near you? I know it was King's Cross.

She is a ghost, and to become a ghost a person who dies does not "Go on", but rather comes back as a imprint of their former soul (ie a ghost). Harry's parents,Dumbledore, Sirius they all chose to "go on" instead of becoming a ghost. Hoped that helped :D

Essentially, by taking Harry's blood, Voldy both gained and extended the power of Lily's protection, such that it lived on within both of them. This protection, along with the Elder Wand refusing to kill its true master, kept Harry safe, and directed AK to destroy the fragment of Voldy's soul within Harry rather than Harry himself. I think the death of a part of soul inside him (even though it was Voldemort's soul) is what triggered the whole scene at King's Cross. It kinda sent him into limbo for a bit.

I think you are right about that but I think that Harry was very lucky to become the Elder Wand's True Master. What if he did not get Malfoy's wand? I guess it was all about the prophecy saying that Harry could be the one to finish Voldemort off.

A playboy in Harry Potter wouldn't be that great. The only attractive witches are that girl from the tournament in the 4th book and Tonks when she's pregnant.

And I think the idea of Dumbledore being gay is good, because the whole book's about, "Oh, don't be a douchebag and discriminate!" and for everyone who didn't get the message and loves Dumbledore but hates gay people, there it is. Perfect.

22. HARRY POTTER CONJURES UP A TWO-PART FINALE.
HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS will be released as two separate
films, Warner Bros. announced Wednesday.

Parts 1 and 2 will be released in November 2010 and May 2011 and will be
the final chapter in a decade-long HARRY POTTER film bonanza.

David Yates, director of sixth movie HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD
PRINCE, is on board to direct the seventh film -- both parts will be
filmed consecutively.

Steve Kloves will be returning to write the last two movies, adapting JK
Rowling's 784-page book, the longest in the series.

HALLOWS sold more than 11 million copies in its first 24 hours of
release.

The cast from the sixth movie, including now-teenage stars Daniel
Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint as Harry Potter, Hermione
Granger and Ron Weasley.

The films are guaranteed hits, so splitting them makes financial sense
for Warners, who distributes the pics worldwide and has no financial
partner sharing revenue.

Warners allowed Quentin Tarantino to split his otherwise-unwieldy KILL
BILL into two parts, released in 2003 and 2004.

The librarian-author at the heart of the Harry Potter encyclopedia lawsuit controversy, Steven Jan Vander Ark, broke down sobbing on the witness stand on Tuesday.

The 50-year old librarian was described by courtroom observers as "school boy charming" and an obvious Harry Potter die hard. On the witness stand, the librarian portrayed J.K. Rowling as 'his idol, his true literary love, who had been unaccountably bewitched by the evil, money-grubbing forces of publishing, like one of Voldemort’s vassals.' He couldn't understand how Rowling one day was singling out his Harry Potter Lexicon Web site, out of “hundreds of thousands” of Potter fan sites on the Web, for praise and then the next is accusing him of plagiarism for wanting to turn it into a book.

The report goes on to recount that when the librarian was asked by his lawyer if he considered himself part of the Harry Potter community:

“I did,” he said, his face reddening, as he turned away from Ms. Rowling, who was sitting 10 feet away at the plaintiff’s table, listening intently. Then he burst out crying. “Sorry,” he said, regaining his composure. “It’s been difficult because there’s been a lot of criticism, obviously, and that was never the intention.”

Rowling reacted to the librarian's testimony through an e-mail message from a spokeswoman, saying, “A fan’s affectionate enthusiasm should not obscure acts of plagiarism.”

He sounds a bit loopy to me anyway....

rhapsody blue
April 18, 2008, 09:10 AM
Yeah, he does. Apparently he even back stabbed the publishing company that is planning to publish his book.

When asked if he would not be working RDR following the Lexicon book because he felt he was being misled, he adamantly denied such an allegation. Rowling’s lawyer then brought in a new piece of evidence. She distributed to the judge, Vander Ark, and RDR’s lawyers, a copy of an email sent by Mr. Vander Ark to Melissa Anelli. He stated in the email that he felt RDR had lied to and misled him and that they ruined his standing with fans and JKR and that was why he wouldn’t work with them anymore. The still silence following this piece of evidence leaves me with the conclusion that it’s very possible that RDR did not know that Vander Ark was saying such things behind their back.

I did feel sorry for him..after all the things he has done for Voldemort, but Snape was the current holder of the Elder Wand and Voldie wanted it, and we all knew who would win at the end.

Anyway, the first part of the 7th move will be out on Nov. 19, 2010 while the second part will be out in summer 2011.


16. DEATHLY HALLOWS PART ONE SET FOR NOVEMBER 2010 RELEASE.
Warner Bros. Pictures will release Part One of HARRY POTTER AND THE
DEATHLY HALLOWS on November 19, 2010, per ComingSoon.net.

Part Two will follow sometime in summer 2011.

The official announcement from Warners earlier this year saying the
studio was splitting up the final HARRY POTTER book did not have a firm
date.

David Yates (HALF-BLOOD PRINCE and ORDER OF THE PHOENIX) will direct a
Steve Kloves script with returning stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint
and Emma Watson.

We ain't even seen the 6th movie yet lol. And yeah, I heard about that.
That's what I wanted to see in the 5th movie, but they just ruined everything, I was totally disapointed with the order of the phoenix movie. Thank god they won't ruin the last one. XD

And is the first part gonna be 2 and a half hours? and 2nd part be 2 and a half hours?
that would be uber cool

I don't think that Deathly Hallows is going to really divided into two parts. It'll end up being a trilogy! Honestly, these movies are huge cash cows for Warner Bros. They are going to milk this last book as long as possible, or until JK announces a new series.

She is writing a series but its for a older audience. But I don't think it will be popular as HP. HP are the BEST books

i saw that and i was really impressed with the trailer, cuz i always thought the sixth movie is all about the storyline and it would be a big challenge to make it into a movie. but so far it looks awesome

Yeah it does look awesome so far. I was watching some interviews about the movie and I think the actors had said it was pretty funny to film the kissing scenes.

Well I have really bad news for all the potter fans. The release of the Half-Blood Prince was pushed to summer of 09. For more details you guys may go to this link:

No MAN! Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is rated PG! This is so stupid, it's not going to be nothing like the book. This book has death and lots of dark materials, and it's rated PG. It's going to be like the 5th movie where they cut out so many important scenes from the book. Also they removed like 2 memories of Voldemort and removed Dumbledore's funeral. Man this is shit. (Wikipedia sources)

Seriosuly it ain't hard to make a movie by following the books.

I am serious. Exactly, the 6th book was one of the darkest stories. Removing Voldemort's memories, and removing Dumbledore's funeral?
They said that if they kept dumbledore's funeral, it wouldn't fit in with the story? What the hell? IT'S IN THE BOOK! If it's in the book and it does fit in the story, then you gotta have it in the movie....PG Rating, great. So no Fenrir Greyback I guess.

kadodo
April 13, 2009, 12:55 PM
I guess a lot of stuff will be cut off. I really hope they do a great job with Number 7. Since they will split into 2, they must include every single little things that the fans would want.

April 13, 2009, 01:00 PM
I hope they include the 17 years later in the second part of Deathly Hallows. But still, the 6th book is my favourite and man I am dissapointed. *sigh* Hope they do include Fenrir Greyback, otherwise whats the point in missing out the key info and characters..

kadodo
April 13, 2009, 01:12 PM
Yeah Fenrir Greyback is important in this book. However, I think the most important thing is Naruto's last adventure with Dumbledore. This part is crucial and I think it will need it will need perfect acting. This is the part where there'll be the most dark stuff and especially Dumbledore drinking that Nasty thing.

Also the Inferi, the dead bodies in the water. Seen the trailer when Dumbledore does the fire thingy, forgot what it was called. xP

lol my bad, I tend to confuse those two a lot since I'm so addicted to them. I think i'm not gonna edit it, just for laughs.

Anyways, besides that I think the movie will be funny will all those love potions going around. It's gonna be romantic too when they show the love between Harry and Ginny and the jealousy between Ron and Hermione.

lol that's gonna be awesome. In one of the trailers Harry is looking at a poster reading " The Destined Child" and harry is pleased with it, then Hermione slaps him on the head and says " What are you doing " and harry replies " but it's true, I am the destined child ". I think it was that felix felicies thing..lol

Aside from how good the movie is. How much of the story do they skip from the book?

idc if it's awesome but if they skip stuff from the book I won't see it.. The 6th book is too good for that.

kadodo
July 23, 2009, 01:52 PM
Well lets see. The movie was good. I think they stick to the story. However, I think they added more stuff than they took out. Most of the kissing scenes were good but they happened differently.

Trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 & Part 2

Part 1 released November 2010
Part 2 released July 2011

Both in 3D

Love it/Hate it? What's your opinion?

Personally, if they nail the 3D, it will be one of the best films for a long time because the book is insane, and the trailer looks fantastic! Got me all hyped up, and mind you, I'm no hardcore Harry Potter fan.

July 01, 2010, 04:07 PM
The new HP trailer was sick. It didn't reveal too much, and it didn't reveal too little. It was absolutely perfect.
I'm glad the director is taking an initiative to split the movie into two parts. There is a lot of material that cannot be covered in 2.5 hours, especially when we get to the Hogwarts battle that was skipped in the sixth movie.
The final result probably won't be directly coherent to the book; certain parts may be skipped and there is the possibility for filler, but regardless this is one of my most awaited movie projects this year.

REVIVING THREAD \o/

Anyone else seen the 7th film? Whaddya think about it?

Personally I loved it and the differences from the book actually worked.

It's shame that the actors are so old now because you can really see that, for example, Daniel Radcliff will have a hard time succeeding outside of the Harry Potter franchise while Rupert Grint will go far.

I heard the movie deviated from the book. Made me rage, especially when I was told who caught Harry and Ginny making out.

I still can't believe what happened when Harry and Hermione were at Godric's Hollow either... her sideboobs had better be worth it. :mad

I posted about this in another thread, but i am not going to watch part 1. I rarely watch harry potter films any more, but even besides that fact, from what ive heard part 1 is essentially the setting the scene for the finale. Now as good as it is, i am not going to go out of my way to watch a film that is setting the scene for a conclusion i already know. If it was all one film i would go and watch it (because there is no possible way you can make the second part of DH shit, its impossible!). But its not, and i am happy its not, as it shows more thought and effort went into the best parts of the whole series. Which i am definitely going to watch.


Actually worked.

It's shame that the actors are so old now because you can really see that, for example, Daniel Radcliff will have a hard time succeeding outside of the Harry Potter franchise while Rupert Grint will go far.When you star in 8 blockbusters you can be a worse actor than me and still be successful. :p But i do agree Grint is the better actor. As much as Radcliffe seems to be a really cool person, his acting i believe isnt the best.

November 22, 2010, 01:35 PM
I think radclif won't have a big career after harry potter. He will suffer the same fate as actors who are way to identified with a particular role. Unfortunately for him people will have trouble getting past him being harry potter. Every time he is seen now he will not be seen as whoever he is playing but he will be seen as harry potter. I think a similar thing happened to luke skywalker (cant event remember his name right now).

I agree with you guys totally on the acting part. I have always thought that Daniel Radcliffe was not the best actor. However, he was probably the one who fit the Harry Potter description the best ten years ago. Even if he was not the best actor, I never wanted the people to change him just because I think it would have an effect on Rupert Grint and Emma Watson.

As for him going far, I think he will still make a lot of money and be a very succesfull actor after the HP series are done. Will Rupert Grint be more successful? We cant really tell, I guess it would really depend on which of them gets picked for the best movies

Actually, he asked for the details himself. I'm not that concerned about the minor changes, as the major plot and or example, the doe, is still there. Hopefully The Prince's Tail will be brilliant in the 2nd part as that's the part I'm looking forward the most.
