I have a question. I've been seeing userpictures incorporating what look to be new posters for the upcoming movie Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Is it my imagination or do movie posters for the fifth movie actually exist? Thanks!
So I've been re-reading the books and re-watching the movies.
Don't know why, just have.
I've noticed a couple discrepencies and I was wondering if anyone else either noticed, or if they know the answers. I seems JK Rowling would have picked up on these things, she's pretty brilliant like that.
1) The thestrals. Why could Harry only see them after he saw Cedric die? Before that, he had not only seen his mother killed when he was a baby, but he saw Professor Quirrell die at the end of Book 1. Why did he not see them until Book 5?
2) A little thing, but in Book 2, Percy took away 5 house points from Gryffindor because Ron was talking back to him. Then in Book 5, it was very clear that prefects couldn't take away house points (only the Inquisitorial Squad or whatever they're called). Did the rules change or something?
Anyone else notice things like this?
Just curious. Can't wait for Book 7 or for Order to come out in theatres!!!
I know for a fact that Order of the Phoenix is being made into a movie and that it will be released next summer. I also heard a rumor that Half-Blood Prince will also be made into a movie and will be released some time in 2008.
I don't know if any of you have heard about this yet, but I read some depressing news regarding the last Harry Potter book in one of my local newspapers. Since I read this in a newspaper I don't think that this will count as "spoilery" but if it does, I appologize. Anyway, the article said that TWO more characters are going to die in the last book!! But I guess one can assume that one of the charaters that will die is Volerdermort, since it would be anti-climatic if he lives. But as for who the other character could be, I'm completely in the dark. Oh, and if I remember correctly, the article also said that the book would come out next year.
1. Name: gothic_sarah. For those of you who aren't a member of absolute_lotr, I'd just like to point out. that I'm not a goth even though I call myself one in my name. It's just an inside joke from ny friends at school.
2.Age: 18, well almost. Technically, I don't turn 18 until July, but I think it's close enough.
3. Afre you a fan of BOTH the books and the movies (if only one, tell us why)? I am a big fan of both the books and the movies. I read the books several times a year. I'm waiting anxiously for the last books to come out and for (hopefully) another movie.
4. Favorite Harry Potter character and why: Well, I do like Harry but I don't want to sound like a dork and say that he's my favorite. But I would have to say that Dumbledore is/was my favorite. He was always there teaching Harry and protecting him. I believe that Dumbledore knew that there would soon be a time in which he wouldn't be there to help Harry fight Voldermort.
5. Least favorite Harry Potter character and why: Snape. His deception of everyone at Hogwarts and his killing of Dumbledore makes him one of the most evil people in the books/movies, behind Voldermort that is.
6. Favorite Harry Potter book and/or movie: My favorite books is The Half Blood Prince because it has the best storyline and you finally found out why Snape always acts like such a jerk. My favorite movie is Goblet of Fire because out of the first four books, it has the most action causing it to be a much better movie that the first three, not that the first three were bad or anything I liked them a lot too.
7. Favorite scene(s) from either the books or the movies, or both: My favorite scene from the books is in the Half Blood Prince when Harry is chasing Snape after he killed Dumbledore. From the movies my favorite scene is in the Goblet of Fire when Harry is fighting the Hungarian Horntail.
8. Favorite spell, magical object, creature, Hogwarts class (any or all): My favorite spell is the Patronus, my favorite creature is Buckbeack.
9. What Hogwart House do you think you'd belong to? Ravenclaw
10. How did you hear about this community? I heard about it when I became a member of absolute_lotr.
