This is the third film in the series, and the first not directed by Chris Columbus. Is it as good as the first two?
Warner Brothers announced a Nov. 18, 2005, release date for the fourth Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which goes into production later this year, the Zap2it Web site reported. The third film, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, opens June 4.
In an online interview, J.K. Rowling
allegedly kinda sorta hinted that maybe there might be an eighth Harry Potter book, after maintaining for years that she would stop at seven.
How much weight should be placed on incredibly vague quotes like this one, that are probably being taken out of context anyway? And how many more years do we have to wait before we see the sixth and seventh books? (I’d start a betting pool, but there’s a good chance many of us will die of old age before there’s a winner.)
Sorry about the abbreviated title above. The full title is too
long for our RDF file to handle without choking.
Well, at least in some parts of the world, it’s June 21, and people have already started reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I envy those of you with plenty of free time to do so… in the interim, we’ve thoughtfully provided this big open forum for you to discuss this book. At 900 pages or so, has Miss Rowling put together a better book, or just a bigger book? And how many American readers will recognize what “Ordinary Wizarding Levels” exams are supposed to represent?
This is bizarre. I ordered my copy of Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix online here in Canada a while ago. I just got an e-mail letting me know that Canada Post, which is normally only running Monday-Friday, will be delivering copies of the next Harry Potter on Saturday, June 21 to make sure everyone gets their copies the day it’s released. That’s right; there’s so much demand for this book via preorders alone that Canada Post will be opening for a day specifically to deliver that one item. The books are good, but are they really this good?
This wraps up reviews of already-published Harry Potter novels. That also means I should be getting back to The Silmarrilion soon. (Man, I hope that gets better.)
