I'm Wild About Harry and I'm Really Upset!!

Say it ain't so, Harry! It has been announced that The Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince Movie has been postponed for release in July of 2009. The movie would have been ready but too much competition (from, for instance, Stephanie Meyer's Twilight Movie) made a November release a bad investment decision.

I don't know about you, but I'm ticked off. I mean, sure... everyone has moved on. There are only a few die-hard Hogwarts-heads left. I'm one of them. The promise of the movie was nursing my withdrawal symptoms. I've had a monkey on my back for seven books now and it's over... but I'm not ok yet. I'm not over Harry. I NEED MY FIX.

Have you seen the trailer?

I just don't know if I can make it. A YEAR???


Hold me?


  1. Thanks for posting the trailer, Chrissy! Interesting...lots of very brief shots, with lots of black in between them. Are they trying not to give stuff away? Trying to be teasing? Or do they just not have a lot of footage yet? :-)

    And to console you -- the delay of movie #6 will make the wait for movies 7 and 8 seem shorter!


  2. I heard the delay is because he's starring in Equis at the same time and the idea of "Harry" being naked on Broadway while this movie is coming out didn't sit well with the powers that be.

  3. I'm completely with you! I want my HP this Fall (or sooner).

  4. Now would be the time to admit that I've never seen nor read Harry Potter.

  5. I've neither read any of the books nor seen any of the movies.

    Guess I should be giving back my YA writer card...

  6. Oh man...yeah, that sucks to wait so long!! :(
