    Um... Lucius Malfoy can be my bad-guy-hero any day. Look at how he wears that suit. Yum.

    Can I just say that I'm 30-something years old and I wanted to cry after reading the last book. I don't want it to be over!! I absolutely LOVE the H.P. books. I cannot wait for these last two movies. I feel like a six year old waiting for Christmas morning!

      I am with you 100%. This book series is fantastic, and the idea that it's over breaks my heart. But you're right, at least we can look forward to the final movies.

      BTW... Does anyone else get a little sentimental having watched them all grow up before our eyes??? When I think of how little they all were in part one, to this.... it's just incredible.

    @Toddy – The books have been out so it's not a secret. How about you just, oh I don't know, read them.

    @ Roxanne:

    I know. My God. That scene was so well written though. Don;t you agree?

      It's devastating but so perfectly written. I love Ron and didn't want him to die but at least they afforded him the decency of not being Avada Kadavar'd. What an epic scene.

      I am seriously rolling on the floor laughing. You guys are hilarious. For those of you who haven't read the books – Ron does not die!! Don't listen to them! LOL!!

    It's a shame Ron has to die. Poor Hermione. I'm not ready to see that scene. I'm going to be crushed.

    Hey, peeps, some of us are opting to read the books *after* the movies end (so as not to affect continuity). Would you mind, I don't know, *not* posting who dies in the finale? Thanks, though it's too late.

    • Spoiler Alert

      Sorry Toddy. We'll try to keep that under wraps....

      ...until now. Hedwig, Mad-Eye, Rufus Scrimgeour, Dobby, Fred Weasley, Snape, Lupin, Tonks, Colin Creevy and Voldemort all get it.

    • Haven't Read?

      How long have the books been on the market? A decade or more? So what exactly are you waiting for? I started reading the books after the second movie came out and I have long since finished them. In fact, I'm already on book three again this time with my kids. It shouldn't be much of a surprise what's going to happen in movies 7 and 8. What should be a surprise is the stunning imagery that the folks in the production unit come up with.

    Hedwig getting killed was the defining moment in the last book though. That's when you knew exactly what you were in for. If Rowling could kill off the owl then that meant no one was safe.

    I don't need to see Hedwig get wacked. It really was not needed at all. But the worst of course was Dobby. That I at least understood as important for the book. But it was really awful.

    I can't decide if I want them to go with the releasing of Hedwig or the way it is in the book. Personally that's one of my least favorite parts of the whole series... I know nerdy, but true. I am feeling like a major geek that I am so excited for these movies, but I grew up reading the books and at least my husband is as excited as I am too!

      Not nerdy, I know exactly what you mean. I just re-read the series and I hate that part. I hope they do release Hedwig in the films.

    Sorry Pat, but Hedwig probably is let free in the film. Movies don't mirror the books they are based on scene for scene. Haven't you seen Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, where Harry tries to hook up with a waitress at the beginning of the movie before Dumbledore comes for him? That scene was definitely not in Book 6. These lase two movies will be great nonetheless!

      Warner Brothers admitted Hedwig was being released, not killed like the in the books.

    I probably could have done without the rather lame captions. I am, however, pretty excited about the two movies

      I hear you on the captions. I really hated the one for picture five. "Apparently, Harry is going to let his owl, Hedwig, fly free in the film." Apparently, the idiot who wrote that didn't read the book. Boy, are they going to be in for a shock. On the other hand, I suppose she could be considered "free", from a Dumbledore-esque view. ;)

      You seem to be the one mistaken; you know what happened in the book BUT the studio decided to change the "destiny" of Hedwig (trying not to spoil anything- for those who didn't read the book) and I for one am THANKFUL! It would have been sad to see it in action.

    My son thinks Harry's cute. He's so excited for Deathly Hallows.
