Dumbledore is dead... again

by David Haber

Almost exactly 4 years ago, as we all read the end of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince together for the first time, we experienced the death of Dumbledore, and this site became into being, as it was originally known as And now, with the release of the movie, we're reliving it, all over again.

Funny :)
But I read somewhere on the web, that they (the Movie makers) are going to add lot of stuff from that HBP book into the DH part 1 movie. Guess they finally got the whole picture... maybe I shouldn't say that yet, cause they always seem to do something wrong!

Well, I hope so! It would be nice to see those in a flashback. And I read that Dumbledore's also be included in ly Hallows-1.

Loved the books and the movies. I would have changed the ending a little in book seven. I think when Harry and his group were putting their kids on the train. It would have been nice if Dudley and his wife would have shown up to put their little auburn haired girl with green eyes on the train. Whom, incidentally was named Lilly at the insistence of her grandmother 'Petunia'.

LOL! Well one thing's for certain, KMD - her paternal grandfather would have had a stroke when she exhibited magical tendencies!

Yes, It would be great to see a Dursley in Hogwarts!

You know what? I think they should give J.K. Rowling a small part in the last film - or at least a Hitch - like cameo, you know, where you have to strain your eyes to spot her. I also still think Stephen Fry should be in it as well - maybe in a picture frame... maybe as Phineas Nigellus!

Yeah, maybe it would be a good thing that J.K.R. gets a small few minutes to say something or... (this is just like in the Twilight movie, when you see Stephenie Meyer for a few seconds in a local restaurant, where Bella and her father is dining.) Don't think Stephen Fry would make a good Pillius though, but maybe he could be someone else?

Naushaad, why do you think Mr Fry wouldn't make a good Mr Nigellus? Because he's got a too, er, round, kind looking face? Have you ever listened to his Phineas in the audio books? He is sooo brilliant at doing these sneering, sardonic characters ( his Snape is spot on - and that's an understatement..)

I agree, Siena. Stephen Fry would be a great Phineas Nigellus.

I know he "reads" the lines from the book excellently, but addapting the persona of Phillius Black, I don't know if it would sooth him; him being kindda jolly and everything. But I don't really care about it, If they choose him I would be happy, if they didn't I wouldn't really care... [don't get mad] _:)

No, I promise I won't get mad, don't you worry. I was just curious._:)

When I first read the sixth Harry Potter book, I was kind of wishing that Dumbledore was . Not because I didn't like him, but because I thought that right from the beginning of the series, Voldemort would have wanted to Dumbledore so, for me, it was just what I was expecting in a way.

I think that the idea of putting J K Rowling in the film is really good - they did it with Twilight - Stephenie Meyer appeared in a shot, but maybe with Harry Potter, this would just be considered copying. The two franchises are both different and need to be considered differently.
