" Daniel Radcliffe told the Los Angeles Times the split was necessary to maintain the essence of the concluding chapter in the series"

Really? It strikes me more like an instant cash grab, wring as much money out of the punters as possible, as this the last film.......

Seems to be, with the Halfblood Prince is out this November, and the two-movie Deathly Hallows in November 2010 and May 201. That's according to here.

It makes sense, and not just commercially. It'd be a bit indigestible trying to cram it all into one movie.

The last Harry Potter book will be split into 2 movies for "Artistic" reasons.
It couldn't just be that the backers want to make twice the cash, could it?
Let's face it, the book just dragged along with bugger all happening and then had a crap battle at the end.
About the only things that have made the films watchable is that they cut out all the crud that bogged the books down.
Quack!

Rowling Says Dumbledore Is Gay

The Harry Potter author breaks big news in New York.

By Tara Weingarten
Newsweek Web Exclusive
Updated: 2:19 PM ET Oct 16, 2007

Editor's Note: Story Updated at 9 p.m. ET, Oct. 19

J. K. Rowling, author of the worldwide best-selling Harry Potter series, met some of her American fans Friday night and provided some surprising revelations about the fictional characters who a generation of children have come to regard as close friends.

In front of a full house of hardcore Potter fans at Carnegie Hall in New York, Rowling, sitting on the stage on a red velvet and carved wood throne, read from her seventh and final book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," then took questions.

One fan asked whether Albus Dumbledore, the head of the famed Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, had ever loved anyone. Rowling smiled. "Dumbledore is gay, actually," replied Rowling as the audience erupted in surprise. She added that, in her mind, Dumbledore had an unrequited love affair with Gellert Grindelwald, Voldemort's predecessor who appears in the seventh book.

After several minutes of prolonged shouting and clapping from astonished fans, Rowling added. "I would have told you earlier if I knew it would make you so happy."

In answer to the question "Did Hagrid marry?" Rowling replied that sadly, no. The half-giant had a flirtation with a giantess but she found him "a tad unsophisticated" and the relationship never went forward.

In response to the audience's groans of dismay, Rowling said, jokingly, "OK, I'll write another book." And when the audience continued to express disapproval added, "at least I didn't kill him."

Other minor characters, according to Rowling, came to happier ends. Neville Longbottom, Harry's meek and hapless classmate, married Hannah Abbott, another classmate.

The above note is actually an "update" to a somewhat longer article on the "Reading" in Los Angeles and New Orleans. See the link.

I can't fault JKR for making it big on her creation. As a matter of fact, I cheer it on. At least it's for creating a story that captivates and encourages reading, especially among the young who would probably spend their time on a video game or watching the trashovision otherwise.

I just finished reading it. Loved it, and what an ending! Got very sniffy at certain parts - she really knows how to pile on the emotion. She's also k=ont afraid of killing off fairly central characters and she got rid of quite a few this time.

This is definitely a set of books that I'll be making sure my grandchildren get to read.

That was really nice editing on that piece, John O'L. It's too bad the audio got knocked slightly out of synch with the video during MPEG encoding. That often happens. Encoding as an AVI and then converting to WMV gets around that glitch.

Terry Pratchett Thread Creep Alert!

Josh Kirby is the artist you're thinking of. He died in 2001 and Pratchett had a hard job coming up with an equally talented artist who actually reads the books they're illustrating. He succeeded with Paul Kidby - that's why you're getting the name confused! (New TP/PK book 'Making Money' due out in September and filming has started on 'The Colour of Magic' with Christopher Lee back as Death, due to the unfortunate death (ironic or what?!) of Ian Richardson...whoo hoo!!!)

I agree - I think it's a dreadful cover. It's by the same bloke who did the covers for the previous three books, Jason Cockcroft - each one worse than the one before, and not a patch on the first three books. Strange - it's clear from here that he has the ability to come up with pretty good artwork.

Rowan, I think the point was that it's the cloak that's unaffected, not the wearer. If you know there's someone there, it isn't going to help them.

As far as "Harry and the Bum Haircut", does it bug anyone else how bad the artwork is on the kids' cover version of Deathly Hallows? Harry looks like he's about 25, and his face is nothing at all like the face from previous books (for starters, he's grown a Jimmy Hill chin). And the other two look like, ahem, "inflatable friends" - the ones with "realistic mouths". All that money and hype, and they couldn't even get a half-decent artist to do the cover...?

He knew it to be the cloak of legend because it was in perfect shape, unfrayed and of very fine construction. Lesser cloaks of this kind tend to wear out, give spotty results, experience battery failures, lose pixels, and so on.

Specious. Why would a wizard cast a hex like "Stupify" on an empty space unless he knew or suspected someone was there.

I don't recall anywhere in the books where it was suggested Harry's cloak repelled spells.

I just repeated what JK wrote....

Maybe Malfoy and Dumbledore were able to stupefy Harry under the cloak because they knew he was there. Remember, Malfoy saw Harry's foot sticking out - which is what lead him to cast the stupefy spell in the first place.

Apparently other invisibility cloaks are not as efficient, long lasting or resistant to magical attack as the hallow. Also, it seems to have been handed down directly through the generations from Peverell to Harry.

Yes, there is more than one Invisibility Cloak, but there are other things about Harrys that make him suspicious that it's the Hallow - the fact that Dumbledore was so interested in it, it has repelled spells in the past and no matter how tall the three get, it seems to always cover them (apart from odd moments with their feet, but that never appears to be a problem).

Of course, it may not have been an invisibility cloak - there are all manner of spells to make one 'unseen'... Dumbledore refers to them when he says he has no need of a cloak to become invisible.

Books is books... I happen to love historical fiction and could quite happily ram it down people's throats with gay abandon... but I don't because a) I know not everyone has the same taste as me and b) because I really REALLY hate it when someone says 'you MUST read this'.

I will probably read it again, but not because someone else is telling me to. I've not read 'The Da Vinci Code' because everyone was telling me I *MUST* read it....
