It was wonderful to be able to watch the live stream of the premiere yesterday. I really hope WB puts some, if not all, of the footage on the DVD/Blu-Ray.

Thanks Leaky! :-D It makes me happy when HP is in the news and everyone’s talking about it, and in a good way :-)

PS: They’re really juicing the “never say never” in all those articles! LOL! I really hope some day there will be more companion books or new stories from other characters in the wizarding world, but I’m not expecting them anytime soon. Let’s be realistic… We have Pottermore coming up and I think that will have a few years’ worth of stuff in there, so I’m happy that we’ll at least get a lot of new info on there!
