Welcome to Harry Potter Forum! Below you will find many interesting threads and discussions. Enjoy.
So it was my 18th today and yesterday, after I came home from work I was treated to the most amazing surprise party ever. My friends basically decorated my whole back patio in all things Harry Potter. They made signs, logos of all the houses, hung web around the place, put candles everywhere, someone made a snitch, a quaffle and two bludgers, they made butterbeer and they all dressed up as Harry Potter characters, it just goes on. It was just so amazing and I had to share it with all of you. I was so shocked by the extent they had gone to. It was beautiful.
I think the chances of Alfonso directing isn't merely an idea that many fans fantasize about, I think it's more likely than people may think. Think about it, he hinted a few months ago about a desire to return to that universe and then there's the link above that Aaron mentioned. David Heyman is producing and they have just formed an even stronger friendship through Gravity, and Heyman will definitely have an important role in choosing who gets the job. JK Rowling was very pleased with what he brought in POA. He's now highly respected after POA, Children of Men and Gravity all consecutively. It might just come down to Alfonso himself saying yes and whether he really has a strong desire to return to this world, especially after the success he has had with Gravity.
Could not agree more with that. And what I'm also impressed about, is the mature approach they seem to be taking. It seems as though Wes has a keen eye on making this series veer from other young adult adaptions in terms of the cinematic and stylistic approaches as well as the fact he did say at Comic Con that they were making something really dark here and that it's not a kids movie, there's just kids in it.
I just feel like this story has something unique that sets it apart from most young adult films lately. I think the level of mystery this story brings is intriguing to people and I think that will be a decisive factor that draws people in because it feels to me like there hasn't really been this kind of level of enigma in a film lately. I think it's a really exciting story that people will want to be a part of.
Well he said he doesn't watch any of his films after they are made. I think he said something along the lines of it's like watching his parent's have sex. But that probably goes for many directors too; it would be odd watching your own films.
Anyway, Cuaron made the best Harry Potter movie in my opinion so if he comes back, I will be more than thrilled.
