(Updated)Reminder: Harry Potter Weekend on ABC Family Channel


Nov 30, 2007

Posted by SueTLC

A reminder of what we first told you several weeks ago that cable channel ABC Family will be broadcasting their special Harry Potter weekend beginning with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone tonight. Airing tonight at 7:30pm (ET), the channel will then broadcast “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” on Saturday, December 1 at 7pm (ET), and then “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” on Sunday, December 2 at 6pm. “Prisoner of Azkaban” will also be re-broadcast on December 13 at 8pm (ET) as well.

As we also reported previously, WB will be promoting the release of the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix DVD during this weekend, and we will update should any new footage be aired.


: The first of the new footage was just broadcast, and showed a deleted scene, which was a chilling clip of Professor Umbridge holding Harry and Hermione prisoner in the Forbidden Forest. A second clip aired, showing Natalia Tena, dressed as her character Tonks, playing the guitar. In addition, ABC Family ran an add indicating there will be new clips aired tomorrow and Sunday night during the Harry Potter films.

Thanks for the reminder I almost forgot! I love the HP weekends too! Cozying up on the couch with some homemade butterbeer and chocolate watching an HP movie is my favorite kind of movie night!!!

I’ve got the DVD boxsets of all five films thus far so I can curl up anytime and watch them. But I can’t wait to have the HD DVD experience (when I can afford a HD DVD recorder etc lol).

I’d imagine Butterbeer consists of caramelised Worther’s original sweets mixed with Supermalt, and can be served hot or cold. But I’d prefer some mulled wine…

Just FYI I saw the promo for the weekend and it did say that they will be showing unseen footage from OOTP!!!

it just isn’t Christmas without a Harry Potter weekend, I have all the DVDs too but it is just something about them coming on the TV all by themselves….like magic :}

I did have all the HP dvds… but my family had a house fire about three years ago and my s.s and c.o.s movies were long gone, and I can’t seem to find the dvds anywhere around here…so I’m very greatful of HP movie weekends. Can’t wait to see those two films, it’s been so long since I have!!

I am stocking up on treacle tart, pumpkin pasties and butterbeer. No one is to disturb my Very Harry Weekend.

LilyPotter88 – there’s all sorts of ways to make some muggle butterbeer! But I think the most common (alcoholic!) version is cream soda mixed with butterscotch schnapps. There’s tons of variations out there though, and some of them are really creative. This is a good non-alcholic way to make it, but only if you like really sweet stuff: http://community.livejournal.com/food_porn/1739717.html

OK, going back on topic sorry ;) I looove HP weekends but I had to look away during the OOTP stuff, coz I don’t want any spoilers! I know there isn’t much on the DVD so I’m trying to save it all for the 11th hehe… it’s hard though!

Sorry LilyP it took me so long to write back. I havent checked back in until now. This is the recipe I use when I make it for me and the kids (I use the alcoholic recipe like bellax described when Im hanging out with friends or just by myself! lol) I got the recipe from mugglenet a while ago. Enjoy!!


1 cup (8 oz) club soda or cream soda ½ cup (4 oz) butterscotch syrup (ice cream topping) ½ tablespoon butter


Step 1: Measure butterscotch and butter into a 2 cup (16 oz) glass. Microwave on high for 1 to 1½ minutes, or until syrup is bubbly and butter is completely incorporated.

Step 2: Stir and cool for 30 seconds, then slowly mix in club soda. Mixture will fizz quite a bit.

Step 3: Serve in two coffee mugs or small glasses; a perfectly warm Hogwarts treat for two!
