I'm a huge fan of HP and I'd like 2 start a thread 4 all the ppl fascinated by JK Rowling's magical novels and those who love to escape from this Muggles world into a new exciting one by reading the books or watching the movies. I personally love reading the books. I've read them in Romanian already and now I'm reading them in English. For all of ya Harry fans, feel free to post anything u want! :wavey:

I like Ron too! He's so funny and cute! :angel:
As for the cast of Dumbledore, I think it is confirmed that Michael Gambon will take up the role. It was rumoured that Ian McKellen was also considered for the role. Here's a pic of Mike Gambon. Found it at mugglenet.

have you guys seen the trailer?
You can tell it's a differant Dumbledore, I wish they had tried to make Michael Gambon look a little more like Richard Harris.
The dementors look just as freaky as I imagined!

If anyone hasn't seen the trailer, or would like to watch it again here is the link. (http://harrypotter.warnerbros.co.uk/sightings/trailer.html?id=azk_tlr1&settings=true) This takes you to the page where you can choose how you want to view it -Windows Media Player, Real Player or with QuickTime Player. :)

I met J.K. Rowling once, 4 or so years ago. She came to our school for a chat and a book signing. She's got a great sense of humour and has a talent with words. I really treasure my copy of Prisoner of Azkaban which she signed; it's definitely my favorite of the 5 books thus far.

I think the Professor Sprout might be the head faculty member of the Hufflepuff house? Or maybe its that male teacher who does Charms?

I like this actor. He was also in Sleepy Hollow with Johnny Depp and Christina Ricci.

Iza, are there any differences between the Romanian version and the English version?

Yep, it looks great. The only thing that worries me is that Harry, Hermione, Ron, and especially Draco look too old. They look significantly older in this flick than they did in the 2nd one. I'm wondering if the director will have to change actors for the 4th one and replace this gang with a younger crop?

My favorite characters would have to be Lupin, Sirius (unfortunate that he died, although predictable), McGonagall (Maggie Smith is wonderful as the professor in the movies :D), Cho (damn Harry for being so insensitive in the 5th book), Hermione, the Weaslesy twins, Hagrid... goes on and on.

I have a question on the 5th book. Does anyone understand why Harry was so angry at Snape at the end of the book? He kept saying how he will never forgive Snape for what he did, blah, blah, blah, but I don't get it. It was Harry who fucked it all up and got Sirius killed, not Snape. Is he just in denial?

I agree w/u. Harry was the one who fucked it up, he wanted 2 make it the 'hero' just like hermione said. I really pity Snape cos he's always been the excluded and lonely one and I believe this was the reason y he turned to the black magic stuff. But after I read was James potter used to do, I pity him even more!

well, yeah, one is in english and the other one is in romanian ;) Actually there are: the names for example: Neville Longbottom is in th romanian version Neville Poponeata( this means bum in a very nice way, like u call it 4 kids :) )

Nymeria
01-07-2004, 08:13 AM
I think a lot of languages translated the name, I don't know all names in Dutch, because I did read the books only in English. But some are:
Ron Weasley = Ron Wezel
Hermione Granger = Hermelijn Griffel
Snape = Sneep
Dumbledore = Perkamentus

I do'nt like the Dutch names :( That's the reason I didn't read the books in Dutch

Any Chinese girls around the age of 13-16, and who are located in Britain - you can submit stuff to the casting agency to be considered for the part of Cho Chang, if you'd like to. PM me for the address - somehow, I don't think they'll appreciate me plastering it all over these boards.

Hallo, I´m pretty new here and a huge Harry-Potter-Fan, too. One of my favourite characters is Mrs. Weasley. She has a BIG heart and is always fighting bravly against chaos :)
Speaking of Neville : What do you think will be his role in the next 2 books? He seems to be connected with this mysterious prophecy (boy born in July etc.) Maybe Voldemort took on the wrong boy and Neville is really the one who can threaten him ???

Billabong
01-07-2004, 05:39 PM
I'm so sad that Harry wasn't able to kill Bellatrix Lestrange.. she's the one who killed Sirius and who made Neville's parents crazy, and now she's free with Voldemort... I hope she dies in the next book, she deserves it so much!!!

amethyst
01-07-2004, 07:01 PM
I dont´t think that Beatrix Lestrange will die - at least not before the very end. Maybe there´ll be a conflict between her and other followers of Voldemort, who have been "untrue" and hiding while Voldemort was down. She has expressed pretty much hatred for these people. Let´s hope for Harry that such a conflict could weaken Voldemort.

Leo
01-08-2004, 12:16 AM
I don't think Beatrix will die until the 7th book. Maybe Harry will kill her - or possibly Lupin?

Jag
01-08-2004, 11:54 AM
I hope Beatrix doesn't die soon - she's an interesting character and has lots of potential.

I am the hugest Harry Potter fan :hearts: :bounce:. My favourite book was Escape From Azkaban, followed closely by the Goblet of Fire, followed by Order of the Phoenix, and I like the other two equally :hearts:. I loveeeeeeee Harry :hearts:. I'd sleep with him :rolleyes:. I also fell in love with Cedric in the Goblet Of Fire...I was crushed when he died :sad: :sad:

Rowan Atkinson is going to play Voldemort in the 4th movie. I can't really see it but i suppose he's going to wear alot of make-up and stuff.

You know i was wondering do any of the teachers Mac Gonagall, Dumbledore and Snape ect have love lives?? because you never hear anything about them.

I loved Cedric too!!! I can't believe he was going out with Cho though. I hate Cho! I'm so glad Harry doesn't like her anymore. I reckon Harry will end up going with Ginny and Ron and Hermione are just meant to be together. There's so much tension between them!

Lynne
01-11-2004, 09:44 AM
Who's Mark Evans?? Hm... I think I have to read Order of the Phoenix again... I don't really remember all the parts.. :)

Rowan Atkinson playing Voldemort.. Can't really imagine him doing that since he's made a lot of comedies!!

Yeah, I hate Bellatrix Lestrange too!! Evil woman!!

What do u guys think about Ginny? She's replaced Harry as Gryffindor's seeker and she seems really intelligent and stuff..

Iza
01-12-2004, 01:41 PM
Rowan Atkinson :eek: ????? I can't blive it! He looks so hilariuous in evil roles! I saw him in Scooby Doo playing the bad guy and he was so ridiculos! He just makes u laugh even if he's saying th freakieast thing ever! :lol:
And about the teachers' love life: good point! Just imagine, McGonagall w/Dumbledore or Snape with Madame Pomfrey or professor Sprout! :haha:

oh...here's a nice page u guys oughta read.

http://www.knight2king.net/Knight2King/Personal51.html

not sure if u guys have read it before, but it's got lots of theories abt how te book might end

Ballbuster
08-09-2004, 04:44 AM
oh that chess game corrollary has been circulated so much JKR certainly won't use it.

I'll give u a short synopsis of how I think the book will end, i'm going to base it on traditional literary archetypes, though i'm sure i'll be proved wrong:

Dumbledore will sacrifice himself in some sort of way that will allow Harry to kill Voldemort.
Harry will be so powerful himself that for safety reasons he too must be killed, probably by someone like Lupin.
Neville will live out Harry's dream of becoming a great Auror.

I also think Arthur Weasley will become Minister of Magic, he was the only one of the ministry who correctly believed Harry.

PennyThePenguin

welll...rowling has already said on her site that unfortunately, arthur weasley won't be the next minister of magic

oh that chess game corrollary has been circulated so much JKR certainly won't use it. I beginning to think that too, but I wonder if she is too far into the story to make a complete u-turn on it. The chess game theory does have a few varitions on it depending on which site you read it on, I wonder if her version of it will just be a little differant than all the rest

I also think Arthur Weasley will become Minister of Magic, he was the only one of the ministry who correctly believed Harry.
hmmm I agree about Dumbledore dying, but I think the part about Lupin killing Harry is a little far fetched. Rowling already said Arthur Weasley won't be Minster of Magic, but I do think he will get a higher ranking job. Maybe he will fill Couch Sr.'s job (bah! I can't remember what his title was!) whatever that was.

hmmm, I do think that Peter Pettigrew will redeem himself somehow, probably be saving Harry's life and will either be killed killed in the process of saving Harry or will be killed because he saved him.


Any thoughts on who the new defense against the dark art teacher will be?

I've got 2 theories...

One it will be Snape since Harry needs to be able to take advanced potions to become a auror and I don't think he will have gotten a high enough grade on his OWLS for Snape to let him in so they will just have a differant teacher that will let Harry in. Plus I think Rowling has pasted by Snape enough times that everyone thinks he is never going to get the job so now is the ideal time to let him have it. Plus I would think it would be fun watching Snape trying to jinx Harry and Harry knowing all the counter jinxes ;)

Two, it will be one of Harrys mom's friends since we no know nothing about here I expect that we will find out more about Lily in book 6

nice theories u've got running there. agree on the pettigrew part cos there have been hints thrown out abt how bonds are formed b/w two wizards when one saves the life of the other and blah blah blah....

now we know that the mark evans thing was just a coincidence... who's next? we haven't really heard much abt lily or james' family so i'm hoping for more of those. (hasn't harry got any really distant cousins and what nots? hmmm)

I know the others, Snape, McGonagall, and then Sprout for Hufflepuff.
I had narrowed it down to either Flitwick, Sinistra, or some unknown teacher, but I thought Sinistra since Flitwick was really old plus they described him as really short.

Sirius21, can you also tell me who the Ghost for Ravenclaw is?
I know the others, Nick for Gryffindor, Bloody Baron for Slytherin, Fat Friar for Hufflepuff.

ummmmmm... don't think it was ever mentioned in the book abt the house master.

as for the ghost....ummmmmmmm no idea really. i have no idea why but i always associate ravenclaw with a female ghost...not myrtle though.... i think it's my subconscious acting weird. i've been wondering too actually.
