    Official Harry Potter thread

    Wow I can't wait for the sixth book. I just pre ordered it then. It comes out over here on the 1st of July.

    This is a thread to talk about anything concerning Harry Potter and possible theory's and predictions on the upcoming book as well as a chance to reminisce on the previous adventures of Harry Potter and friends.

    I'm looking forward to the 6th book, but I'm not a fanatic or anything.

    I wouldn't really call myself a fanatic either. I just like the books and am intregued as to how and where J.K Rowling is going to go with the overall story. She has so many options avaliable to her.

    Back when I was like 11, I had read all the books in the space of a week, was really into it, since then I've just stopped reading them, really.. . I'm not counting down the days to the book's release, but I'll definitely read it.

    I never understand why some people who love the HP books dont like the movies...I mean the movies are as good and have done justice to the books...though books will remain the first preference...

    Well JK Rowling will be under contract now (for the movies) and it's a fair to assume that the pressure of knowing that what she's writing will be adapted to the big screen may influence the books - ie; something too hard to replicate in a film might not be used!

    I don't know how they will fit the fourth book into a movie.. I mean it is double the size of the first three books and they were all three hour movies I think ( maybe not the third )

    Anyway they will have their work cut out to make a movie that doesn't miss out too much of the plot. I get annoyed at the movies because they don't show all of the stuff in the books but I guess they have to to allow a respectable time frame on the movie.

    I'm not a fan, not at all. I've managed to read half a book, and watch one movie. That's all I could take.

    I too get annoyed when they adjust so many things to fit into the movie...but still the movies were great to watch.

    About the fourth movie,I was watching some crappy show on MTV where they were saying there are no Dursleys in the fourth movie...hope it isn't true...more than anything else I want the fourth movie to be complete inc. Quidditch world cup

    I wonder how they'd show the duel between Voldemort and Harry at the end...that part in the fourth book was I think the fastest rate at which I read a certain number of pages at one go...simply awesome
