That's what I was thinking. Also does anyone think that Siris as the dog (I guess the Grim) is cute? I love his dog form!

If you look for the rabid quality in a dog I am worried.  The dog did nothing for me as it was computer generated, a real pit bull or something like that would have had more effect.

I heard that it might come out in September. The 6th one anyway. It is just a rumor, I personally think we would know more if it was that soon...

Because I am a Harry Potter fan of course!   tongue  That and it was talking about the "next book" and since the fifth is out already I thought I would share some stuff I heard about the sixth. Even though I doubt it will come out in September, I will share some more news!   laff  She said she is well under way with the book and she should finish soon. Still, the publishing should take a while. Then, next to that, she said it WILL be shorter than the 4th and 5th.

Spreading rumours is fun!

My understanding is that book 6 will not be published until at least next year. I can't remember where I got that, but it was some interview with the author a while back. That, and it will be slightly shorter than book 4.

I also heard that all the movies would be contained to one movie each (that makes sense, right?).

I think if they do it over two films it will allow the films to actually cover all the aspects and material in the films rather than the main areas. The past films have left too much of the subtlies out which maked the books to enjoyable, I mean theres nothing more rewarding than noticing a hint of a new stroyline back in book 3 which was actually enacted in book 5, in the films they have just Hollywoodised it, shame really...  up yours   cry

i'm sure what ever they do in the next book will be great, not that i read them any way, then as Prince has said they will just 'Hollywoodise' it.

i think with some films that are baised on a best selling book should not be allowed to be made as all they seem to do is bugger them up!

I missed this thread until today, how odd! I saw the first movie and then went and got the books, so Daniel Radcliffe works fine for me. Whenever I read the books I see them in the roles, if you read the books first you always make up an image in your mind and then the film nearly always disappoints since it doesn't tally with what you have in your head.

What I have liked about her books is that she has not made them all carbon copies of each other. To me, Chamber of Secrets was much darker and is still my favorite among the books,and Yes, I have read all five.

I don't want anyone spoiling the movie for me please, I am not going to be able to get to see it until June 25th or so since I totally lack transportation and I live in the most boring town in the world. The biggest entertainment around here is the local Blockbuster.  no no Even the BARS are dull.  sleep

Azkaban is funny;the first time I could not follow it somehow and it really did not appeal to me at all, I almost hated it, and I love this series! I'm not puting it up on a pedestal either but I read books for enjoyment and HP has done that for me in spades. It's the little things that make it great.  wink After I read Azkaban the second time through the series I liked it much better, maybe all the time-twisting just threw me off, I don't know, but it was at least fair the second time around.

Peeves did NOTHING in book 5??? I'm sorry, but that whole scene when George & Fred leave is classic and I love that last line, and the results... One of my favorite parts in the whole series.  smile

I don't know how to do spoiler boxes so you all can just flame me. I have been wondering why no one mentioned here that bit about Wormtail/Peter Pettigue owing Harry a favor and Dumbledore saying that it would be important later. God knows she lifted that whole from the LOTR but that isn't the point; something almost certainly will come of that... She has let that point go since the end of book 3 yes?

I also like what JK has done with Neville and Luna Lovegood,and you know that scene at the end of term where she is looking for her stuff really got to me,I felt really bad for her.  frown Neville is really coming along though, eh?

My predictions! Come on people let's get guessing!

1. Neville is going to kill Draco Malfoy by the end of book 7.

2. Lupin will end up with the DODA post again and break the streak of "You're the teacher, now you die."

3. Dumbledore, Prof. Sprout, and maybe even McGonnigle bite the dust by the end of book 7, maybe even book 6. JK has to end up with at least one bloodbath of people we care about and she has been working her way up to it for some time now.

4. Not a big prediction, but Ron + Hermione and Harry + Luna is my guess.

5. Viktor Krum is a Secret Tool of Evil and will do his best to wreck Ron + Hermione.

6. Voldemort gets the Goblins to work for him and bankrupts the Wizard world overnight, causing mass chaos.

7. Harry is going to realize what exactly that bond between him and Voldemort means and he is going to find a way to kill himself that takes Voldemort with him.

8. If that doesn't happen, JK is going to steal an idea from another author and have Harry off Voldemort but lose all his powers as a result, a la Ursula K. Leguin's The Wizard of Earthsea trilogy finale. Dumbledore DID mention that Lord V. gave him some of his power when his curse backfired, didn't he? We have no idea what kind of wizard Harry would be without that power; he has had it almost since birth, no? Long Live Harry the Squib! or maybe even muggle...  roll eyes

Nice predictions. They are all reasonable, except that I don't think that Viktor will play a main part of the rest of the books; I think he was introduced mainly for the fourth one. And #7 isn't going to work, because only one of them could survive, which means that one WILL end up alive, and obviously, that someone will be Harry.

Only one could survive yes, but it doesn't mean that either of them will live. For example Voldermort could kill Harry, and he is the one who would survive (this is hypothetically) and someone (maybe Harry's friend) would be sad and would kill Voldermort for revenge. Just a possibility.

But that would make Harry not very relevant at the end, with someone else killing Voldemort. No, in my opinion, Harry will kill Voldemort, and the series will be over. Of course, J.K. Rowling could have thought everyone would think like me, and change the end so we would be surprised.

i'm 100% certain Voldemort will die. 98% certain Dumbldore will die. And about 68% certain 1 of the main kids (Harry Ron or Hermione) will die.

The only prediction I'll make is that Harry ends up being the permenant teacher of defense against the dark arts after he finishes at Hogwarts.

My reasons-
He enjoys his DA club
He is naturally talented at it
He considers Hogwarts the only home he's really ever had


edit: also all these death predictions, I dont think these stories are morbid enough for there to be that many deaths

You really think Malfoy will die?  I predict some twisty plot lines where they think he is on Harry's side and then think he is in fact on Voldemorts side.  Very twisty.  Although who's side he will really be on I can't predict.

I buy that idea for Snape davierocks but not Malfoy. I still can't get a handle on Snape overall, the man just begs to be painted black sometimes but Dumbledore trusts him... Malfoy is just too black and white, haven't seen a single redeemable trait in that boy except his arrogance and laziness make him foul up everything eventually. You would think he would have at least given a few thoughts to changing his approach after getting his butt whipped for five years running now wouldn't you? Not too bright, that one.

I dunno Klumsy Kitty. I mean both Snape & Malfoy are real jerks and I don't think either of them show much mercey. Plus I'd kick there butts (or at least Malfoy's) to a pulp.

Snape has never really let Harry down when it really matters yet.  He alerted Dumbledore that Harry thought Sirius was in trouble in book 5, he stopped Quirrel from killing Harry on the quidditch field in book 1.  Probably more that I can't re-call right now.

Dumbledore and Voldemort will definately have a showdown in the 7th or 6th book and, amazing wizard though he may be, Dumbledore is going to be killed.
Fueling by the burning desire for revenge Harry's wizarding skill will become legendary over the two last books, and I think Harry will kill Voldemort and most probably loose his powers. I also think that Neville will kill Lucius Malfoy, as I will not accept the possibility it is him who is deistined to kill Voldemort.....no good sonova!!
(Also Ron and Hermione are so badly gonna get it on!!)

Ah! But what about that Auror buisness? He said in either books 4 or 5 that that was the only career he seriously considered after Hogwarts.

Ron and Hermione HAVE to get together.. Harry's off lusting after Cho, anyway. That's rather refreshing, the main male not getting with the main female character. Things don't always work that way! It's so cliche. Also, Ron deserves some. And I thought he had it pretty bad in the BOOKS!

Yes, I thought it was a good twist when Harry didn't get prefect and Ron & Hermione did. I expected Hermione maybe but Ron??? That was purely to start conflict between harry and Ron, and it worked pretty good too.

Actually if you read into the books quite a few people die who are not central to the immediate story. The Riddle family and that caretaker early in book 4 for instance; Lots of people died when Sirius Black got arrested if you remember. Indirectly there has been quite a bit of blood really.

Actually that's because Percy is (or was which ever way you flip the pancake) was a prefect. It's another Weasley tradition I guess.

Still, though... A Harry and Hermione relationship is rather unlikely. Much less likely than a Hermione and Ron one, at least, that's all..

Ron and Hermione is a foregone conclusion ... so knowing Rawlings, Hermione will end up with Goyle, Ron will end up with Luna, and Harry will end up with Neville.

I always thought it would be amusing if either Ron or Hermione dies, and the other goes on a berserker vengeful rampage... but I somehow am doubting that'll happen. Which makes me sad.
