Such a shame the event was only for DVD press and not mainstream press-then fansites could have gone and done some proper reporting!! Pics arent brilliant but still nice to see! ONE WEEK TILL I GET MY DVDS!!!

Avatar Image says:

Good bye, Emma’s blonde hair. Heh.

Can’t wait for the DVD! :D

Avatar Image says:

I am the world’s greatest Emma lover, but she should clamp down on Daddy’s photos unless they are quality. These are dreadful. Bad mistake to let photos go public if they are not good.

Avatar Image says:

My thoughts exactly, Ryan.

Avatar Image says:

I don´t get it..Are those photos from a DVD launch?????

I only see some very blurry pics of Emma signig some photos.

And I totally agree with Robert, If Emma´s dad love taking pics of his daughter, the least thing he could do is to get her “in focus” if he´s intending of publishing them..otherwise he should keep them in an album at home

Emma Watson’s web site always is updated by a person named “Jo”, is this J.K. Rowling who updates her web site? Or just coincidently the webmasters name is Jo as well?

Avatar Image says:

Yes, Emma Watson has in fact employed J.K. Rowling to update Emma’s site. Rowling needs the money, has too much time on her hands, and Emma is just that cool.

Avatar Image says:

PMSL HAHA!! You beat me to that answer.

Jason come on-as if JK Rowling sits updating Emma Watsons website! Its Emmas webmaster who should be expecting a lawsuit one of these days for being called Jo. Im kidding obviously!

Avatar Image says:

When are the press outlets going to be allowed to release their pictures???

Emma looks GOOD!

Avatar Image says:

Amy S-there was only DVD press there-not main press. I imagine only DVD press who are reviewing the dvd. I doubt we will get any reports or many more pics. Keep look out for BBC NEWSROUND LIZO though-I imagine he will have first review in next few days!

Avatar Image says:

@ Robert – Well I think the reason Emma’s site is releasing these personal photos is to try to quash the desire for unauthorized/stolen “private pics”... so obviously the personal photos they release aren’t going to professional quality or anything, or that would defeat the point.

I just had another looksie at the pics, and I really love what Emma’s wearing. I notice her roots are coming in a bit though, maybe she’s getting ready to go brunette for filming. Oh, I can hope, right?

Avatar Image says:

Yes Emma does look gorgeous there. But i wanted Bonnie to be there and i read that she wasn’t. What is WB thinking not inviting my favourite Bonnie there, and not giving her more lines in the films. I am just aggravated cause i was waiting for this, and waiting for new pics of Bonnie. Then i read that she wasn’t even there makes me upset:(. WB better make things up to us Bonnie fans and give her tons more parts and lines in the final two films.

Avatar Image says:

Don’t worry they are going to start promoting the heck out of Bonnie soon. They’re just waiting for the HBP stuff to start, once they start promoting that film she will be everywhere, trust me.

Avatar Image says:

@Haha, LOL!

Avatar Image says:

Interesting that the discription of where the shoot/launch was held was “The Great Hall”........correct me, if I’m wrong, but it looks either like ‘DD’s office’ or ‘Flourish and Blotts’! BTW, Dad takes great photos! Yes, Emma looked great, and I hope she’s going brunette for the film…but I don’t think it’s going to be too dark! *D (OH, YAH! Thanks, Ryan!...you have to “rub it in that you get yours a month be fore WE do, “across the pond”!)LOL

Avatar Image says:

I was just wondering if the Canadian DVD release date for Movie 5 has been published somewhere.

Avatar Image says:

Squeee! I’m so happy – saw the advert for “Order of the Phoenix” DVD on TV last night and rushed out to buy it today. It’s terrific! I really enojoyed the deleted scenes – they really ought to have kept most of them in. “Trelawney Eating” is fall-off-your-chair hysterically funny. She is such a terrific comedic actress! Viva South Africa – last in most things, but first in this. Squeeee!

Avatar Image says:

The photos are not that bad so leave her Dad alone. :) On another note why is the DVD not available for pre-order on Amazon or retail stores websites in the US yet. It is just a month away and yet Amazon still says to sign up for information on the release date. Amazon, we know the release date let us order the darn thing already. I mean Sherk has been up for pre order for months now and I pre ordered my GOF DVD like three months before it was released. It just seems weird that the big retailers are not taking pre orders is WB up to something?

“go brunette for filming” —Confederate Lady

doubtful. Considering her hair was even lighter than this color in the last film, I think they’re going to go full-out Paris Hilton this time, with a matching pink bow. It’s only what they’ve been doing since Azkaban. sigh

Hahaha I agree, these photos are terrible! It’s funny how they’re trying to squash private pictures. Afterall, the pictures of drunk Emma beats this! Daddy Watson, you can do better!

Avatar Image says:

Yes i can’t wait for that, to see tons of pics and promotion of Bonnie once everything starts to come out. Bonnie Wright rocks my socks off. I just finished watching The Replacements with Bonnie Wright 23 minutes ago. I beg to differ robert, but i am the biggest Bonnie Wright and Emma Watson lover in the whole wide world ever.

Avatar Image says:

@burningpumpkins:”...go all-out Paris Hilton” OMG, NO! Lighter, yes (I hadn’t really been paying attention…her hair WAS lighter, in the last movie. But Paris Hilton Blonde!!!! NO WAY! (gag)

Avatar Image says:

What does it matter if the photos are not top-quality? They are just informal snaps, of the sort that you might show your friends and family for pleasure. I guess Emma thinks they are quite appropriate for putting on her own site, which one assumes is meant to be appreciated by fans of a friendly kind not whingers and snipers. Some people!

Avatar Image says:

(That’s ‘CONFEDERATE LADY’...big, fat fingers and sneaky “pointer”.) I agree with Ann Marie: Emma’s Dad’s pictures are for HER fans…not necessarily “all of fandom”. I think they’re great “snap shots”! JMHO

Avatar Image says:

I’ve heard that the person who runs Emma’s official site has confirmed that Bonnie, Evanna and Matt were there too.

Avatar Image says:

What a lame event, no offense.. PoA DVD launch for the win. I love the trio, but we want to see the other actors! They are as good or better than the trio :-/

Avatar Image says:

Yes like Bonnie Wright she is the best ever. I want to see her pics since i heard she was there. Now bring on the pics of Bonnie.

Avatar Image says:

Emma said somewhere that she does not start filming until December. Maybe they are going to change her hair color once she starts. Wasn’t made blonder for Ballet Shoes? It really does not matter to me if it lighter this time I mean all the guys hair is not done according to the books anyway. How do we always end up talking about hair anyway. :)

Avatar Image says:

Yes it was blonder for Ballet Shoes, i thought Emma had natural Blonde hair anyways? Yeah i know Emma starts filming then, and i am excited about that. But i want to know when Bonnie starts filming? Emma’s pics from Ballet Shoes i have to tell you she looks really beautiful in them.

Avatar Image says:

Once again, Emma, Emma, Emma, Emma, Emma….....

where’s Rupert? Where’s Bonnie? Where’s Evanna?

Avatar Image says:

Woot!!! Only 9 days to go till DVD!!! (in Aus). I really think Emma’s dad is a wonderful man. Most parents wouldn’t want personal or self taken pictures to become public to a fandom of millions. Seriously, I think he’s lovley.

Avatar Image says:

Awesome!

Avatar Image says:

Hmm. Even though I do like Emma loads, I agree with you bonniewrightsbiggestfan and Ian, because I would love to see pics of squee Evanna. There seems to be a hell of a lot less media around Rup, Evanna, Bonnie, Katie, the phelps…etc. Wish we could see even a little more of em ^^

Avatar Image says:

Wow. Do I really have to wait a whole month to get my DVD? I thought that was just a mistype the first time I read it. The UK and the US release dates are really 30 days apart. That just doesn’t make sense to me. Does anyone know why that is?

Avatar Image says:

Yea! I’ll be out getting the DVD on the 24th (Of November that is.. why do the Americans have to wait untill Deecember?? :S)..

The 24th.. Just seems so long though…

i can hardly wait.. and than to think of it i’ve waited for about 4 months already so 2-3 weeks doesn’t seem like that much of a deal..

About the blurry Emma pictures.. they’re weird and blurry and not really ‘dvd realease’ looking (wow good description :P NOT) I want to see some real footage..

Avatar Image says:

Well for everyone information the rest of the cast did attend the DVD press thingy but each of the actors did the interviews on different parts of the studio, and Emma’s dad did took pictures of the rest of the cast but unfortunally they came out too blury so they were not posted. So stop whinning and be gratefull at all that the rest of the actors were there, if you want to complain about something complaing why WB decided to make it private and make the press hold on those interviews until the DVD came out Nov, 14 or whatever.

Avatar Image says:

ok… WHY OH WHY did WB decide to make it private and make the press hold on those interviews until the dvd comes out? :(

Avatar Image says:

I’m just pissed off. I want to see the other actors too. They need their share. It’s actually sweet that Emma’s dad took those pictures for us. But I want to see the main six, just like we did at the NMAs. And I especially want to see Bonnie, because we’ve seen the least of her, and after the trio, she’s the fourth most important character.

Avatar Image says:

i think the pictures are cute. so what if her dad isn’t the best photographer in the world, give him a break at least he is taking the time to take photos for everyone who at least likes emma who cares if they are bad quality. plus, i get my OOtP DVD on the 14th of this month:D

Avatar Image says:

@AngelHug: Does that mean, somewhere down the road (Possibly before the US Press Launch) we’ll get to see the other interviews???? That would be SWEET!

Avatar Image says:

Evanna got quite a bit of exposure. Why should Emma’s site and Emma’s Dad focus on everyone but Emma?

Avatar Image says:

I think these pics are great. They show a more personal side to the event.

If fans weren’t admitted to this event, who was she signing posters for? I also don’t understand why there isn’t any other pictures or press for this event.

Avatar Image says:

Nice, but Emma’s Hair is STILL BLONDE!!!!! ahhh i thought she would change it for Hermione’s role, it’s too blonde for Hermione!!!!!noooooo…....become brunette!

Avatar Image says:

Sali – Emma doesn’t start filming til December so there’s still hope…

Avatar Image says:

Cool! Does that mean that there are good quality copies available for download yet?

Don’t worry, I’m sure someone’ll get me the DVD for my birthday (as it’s just before the US release) and if not, I will get it myself. Although I have to admit, I’m still not totally pleased with the way the film turned out. Harry never really goes ape-** the way he does in the book. And they always dumb down Dumbledore’s d’enoument which is usually one of the best parts of the book. In OotP, their conversation is pretty important.

Avatar Image says:

I’m getting my OOTP DVD tomorrow!!!

Avatar Image says:

Hermione is a character who is a brunette,and Emma is an actress,a real person who gradually went from brunette to blonde. That is her choice of hair colour and if WB doesn’t mind that it no longer fits the character she plays then who are we to complain? The actor’s hair colour doesn’t always match the character’s in the book and the following are all examples:

Daniel’s hair should’ve been dyed pitch black if they wanted an exact match with the character. In the first movie his hair colour was digitally blackened, now they can’t even bother.And his eyes aren’t green either. Tom Felton is a brunet in real life as are the Phelps twins and Bonnie. That’s one bottle blond and three bottle redheads.They should seriously consider hair colour ads. Rupert however, is as real a redhead as Ron is in the books. Haircolour aside, I think the acting is more important really.

Avatar Image says:

Actually Bonnie is a natural auburn.

Avatar Image says:

Bonnie is a brunette according to the person who wrote this report. And she was also a brunette in the Swiss Family Robinson which was shot way before she got the role of Ginny.But that does not mean anything of course. She can still be a natural auburn, though I highly doubt her her would grow out that fast for HBP if it is brown now. She’ll probably colour it back.

Not the best of photos but it is the best we have, if her dad didn’t take the photos who would! we only have to wait until Monday for the FILM!
