Bureau42-Cast – Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince Roundtable

Well then, there have been murmurs, plans, and plottings backstage until finally, Fiziko, Matt, and I saw (in our respective countries) “Harry Potter & The Half Blood Prince”, and decided to talk about it together on Gizmo (after we couldn’t quite get it recorded on Skype), and now record it. Thus, you, you lucky, lucky devils you, get to listen to it!

EDIT: One other little thing – if you have any constructive criticism or topic suggestions, please feel free to post those in the comments so we can get some topic ideas, or just generally work to make the next installment better.

Potter VI Delayed till July

News that is going to really, REALLY, piss off my wife: Warner Brothers announced today that the next installment of the franchise, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, will be delayed over half a year to July 17, 2009

Warner cites two main reasons: First, that they’ll make more money (they used fancier terms) and second that the writers strike has everything backed up.

Deathly Hallows to be Broken into Two Movies

Something to make Harry Potter fans (especially the purists) very happy: The final book will be made into two films, tentatively titled Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II.

According to David Yates, the director, the other books had compartmentalized subplots that were easy to excise. Book 7 lacks the subplots and is all main story.

Release dates are set for November 2010 and May 2011 for each film.
