Update on German Posters


May 11, 2007

Posted by SueTLC

A few days ago, we posted several new “Order of the Phoenix” posters from what we thought was a legitimate German poster store. Warner Brothers has now confirmed to us that these are indeed fan made posters and were not officially released merchandise. We have now removed them, and this editor apologizes for the error and any confusion this may have caused.

Those were so bad, they HAD to be fake!!Avatar Image says: Those were awful posters.Avatar Image says: We have we have now removed them, and this editor apologizes for the error and any confusion this may have caused.Avatar Image says: The Brazilian "The Rebellion Begins" poster is fake too.Avatar Image says: All is forgiven... everyone makes mistake. And I'm gald, they looked really really fake.Avatar Image says: I knew it!! They looked horrible! I thought WB was losing thier magic...all the posters have looks awesome (except for Philosopher's Stone....*shivers* Everything about that movie was just bad) Avatar Image says: The irony being that the Brazilian fake is better than several of the official ones XDAvatar Image says: The Barzillian one looks more then official to me :P Because I haven't seen those pics of Harry, Ginny, Luna and Neville on other posters, yes for Hermy and Ron, but not the others. Btw, I just noticed that if you don't know what OotP is for real, you might start thinking it's the kids on the poster :D Because it shows 6 hogwarts students and it's like a tag "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" which sounds more like "and HIS Order of the Phoenix" Lol :)Avatar Image says: Have they pulled the Swedish poster yet? Cause that one is pretty awful...Avatar Image says: Sorry but which were the German posters?And which is the Brazilian?Avatar Image says: most readers spotted they were fan made if you have a look at the comments for the previous article. I think they deserve a collective mention in this article! I was concerned they were seeling them on the Leaky shop - it just didnt seem right.Avatar Image says: haha, that's funny, because those posters were god-awful... so glad they were fake :DAvatar Image says: heyy!! I said in the comments that I thought they were false! I was RIGHT! coolAvatar Image says: oh thank goodness... well made fan posters...but there was something off about them...
