Emma Watson’s official site has been updated with a note for fans in New Zealand and Canada regarding a future broadcast of her new film, “Ballet Shoes.” While an air date and time are not yet known, the site does note that the film will be broadcast on CBC in Canada and TVNZ in New Zealand. We will bring you further information as soon as we get it.

On a related note, the Region 2 DVD for “Ballet Shoes” will be released on January 7th in the U. K.

As we reported previously, “Ballet Shoes” will air in the UK this upcoming Boxing Day (December 26) on BBC1 at 8:30pm.

Thanks Jeremy!

That’s good to know. I was hoping it would be shown in Canada – I really can’t wait to see Emma in a role outside Harry Potter. I’m sure she will be fantastic.

Avatar Image says:

yes, it was on the CBC.ca website, in their holiday schedule, just a couple of days ago, it was supposed to be on the 30th of December, but now they don’t have it anymore. Maybe I just can’t see it? http://www.cbc.ca/holiday/CBC_HolidaySchedule.pdf

I am hoping that they will air this in the US…if not, I suppose I could call my ex-boyfriend (who so happens to be Canadian) and ask him to record it for me, eh? :) I knew my international appeal would come in handy one day haha! I really want to see Emma’s performance.

Avatar Image says:

Hey, maybe somebody could record it and put in on Youtube! That would be great. Or even parts of it.

Avatar Image says:

Are there any early reviews yet? I sincerly hope that this has helped improved Emma’s acting and I hope she continues to do other films other than Potter.

This is the advantage of having your own site. YOu can generate news of your own if you don’t get enough publicity from major news outets. There’s not enough promo pics in mags and news sites. So fans can get their fill of the pics that Dad posted on Emma’s site as well as advance news of her “career”.

But good luck to Emma’s TV film. Yah, hope her acting improved some in this movie although, she’s not the main lead here. Just part of an ensemble cast. Getting tips from Dan, aren’t we?..

Avatar Image says:

Oh I hope they air it in the US. I really can’t wait to see her in a role other than Hermione.

It’s on the CBC schedule for Sunday, December 30th at 5pm.

Avatar Image says:

Great, thanks Catspane…If only JKR’s documentary would be on CBC the same night it would be a double header! (I read earlier it’s airing in the UK on December 30th…) I noticed on my satillite feed that December Boys is on Vu (Bell’s pay per view) this month…

YAY FROM NEW ZEALAND!

Wow, we are never mentioned so personally, and well done TVNZ for showing this film.

For New Zealanders, TVNZ’s channels are Channel 1 and Channel 2. It is a separate company that owns 3 and 4.

(Yes, I know, we have such inventive TV names here)

Again, YAY!

Avatar Image says:

Yay from NZ too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I probably won’t watch it though…

Avatar Image says:

Ooooh. I don’t live in Canada…but I am pretty sure I get CBC. :D

Avatar Image says:

I live in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan, and get CBC, so I’ll be able to see it. Yea!

Avatar Image says:

Go away, lyra. Seriously. You’re ridiculous.

Anyway, good for Canada and New Zealand, but what about the U.S.?

Avatar Image says:

Eh, Lyra dahlin’, you seem to be very misinformed about the publicity for Ballet Shoes. It’s all over the magazines and newspapers here in the UK, and the BBC have been running it in an advert as part of their top Christmas line up for a couple of weeks now.

It is a TV film, which is why most of the publicity for it is generated here, but it is getting brilliant write ups in the TV ‘zines here. All of them have it as one of their Christmas ‘Must Sees’. And because people are wanting to see it in other countries, it’s generating plenty of it’s own publicity abroad. Emma’s website wouldn’t be able to manage that all by itself because it’s just a website…it doesn’t generate news, it gives information. So I’m not sure why you felt the need to make such a disparaging remark. But Ballet Shoes is it’s very own Leviathan, thanks.

PS There are THREE main leads in this and Emma is one of them.

AWESOME!!!!

I thought NZ would never get it!! I really wanted to see it after that preview thing…

It kinda really sucks to be living in the US now. We’re probably not going to get the DVD ‘til Easter, and not be able to see the movie ‘til February. sigh

Avatar Image says:

I’m sure Ballet Shoes will be excellent, considering the cast (adults too). I am looking forward to seeing it, as well as Oliver Twist which features Timothy Spall.

Since it was never announced as a news item here, I will just add that My Boy Jack, which received universally excellent reviews for Dan and all the cast, is also showing in the US and Canada early next year, and is already available on Region 2 DVD.

Canada- TVO, available to Ontario (Canada) residents on cable. Sunday January 20, 2008, 9pm.

US- PBS MASTERPIECE THEATRE. Sunday, April 20, 2008, 9-11pm ET.

Hopefully it gets better reviews than My Boy Jack. I didn’t read many reviews but there were some negative ones out there. One said dan’s equus performance must have been a fluke after see his wooden performance in Jack. So there was no universal excellent reviews. Actually a lot of HP were unimpressed . So again, hopefully Ballet Shoes will be better. So far it’s getting good marks. Time will tell.

Avatar Image says:

muh! why not air here in US? this is killing me, that and Robert Pattinson is casted as Edward Cullen in Twilight…

Avatar Image says:

Tansey- I read the reviews of My Boy Jack in all the major UK newspapers, TV magazines, and various dvd websites (not to mention having seen it myself). I’d like to know where your ‘wooden’ review was because I haven’t seen a single negative review of this excellent film either from critics or viewers. Quite the opposite. Perhaps you are confusing this film with reviews of December Boys…

Avatar Image says:

Tansey- I’ve found that one review so, ok, I give you ‘not universal’. Always a mistake to use that word :) But one negative against a dozen positives shouldn’t make you assume it’s no good; all that I saw, except for that single reviewer, praised Dan’s performance, saying he was ‘heart-rending’, ‘touching’, ‘perfectly cast’, ‘delightful’, ‘proved his worth’ etc; some previously non-fans were won over by him. Some TV viewers said it was the best drama of the year, which I don’t doubt at all. And you can’t do better than the five star rating it is getting on Amazon and Play.com. So Ballet Shoes will be doing very well to match it.

Yay! I thought NZ would miss out completely like we always seem to….next on my wish list is a tour down under by legendary J K Rowling and i’ll be a happy girl!

To everyone else…don’t worry I can almost be sure someone will put clips up on youtube, if not the whole film :)

I FROM NEW ZEALAND AND I CANT BELIEVE THAT WE ARE GETTING IT!!!!!! i cant wait to see it , goooo new zealand! oh by the way , do any new zealanders here know if how we can get december boys?

Avatar Image says:

And Australialand?

Avatar Image says:

Felicity: Hi! I’m from New Zealand too; I haven’t seen anything about December Boys coming to our cinemas but I remember hearing that it was playing on Sky Movies. Sadly, I think it’s playing time there might have come and gone – but I’m still eagerly waiting for it too!

Fabulous news! Snaps for TVNZ! Just got back from holiday and this, plus the Jo+Leaky Pottercast, is simpy… WOW!

Avatar Image says:

What a disappointment. Emma Watson isn’t too bad but she is far too old for this role at the beginning as are all the children. They are not supposed to have breasts for gods sake. The story jumps a bit and is disjointed. The actress who plays Posy is replaced by a double when she dances…I mean there must be loads of brilliant dancers why did they choose her? they had garnie getting off with a lodger. Sacrilege. This is one of my favourite books ever but this was not a good or respectful adaptation.

This is great! I love Emma Watson. Ever since I heard about Ballet Shoes coming out in Canada I wanted to see it. I love Harry Potter and I have seen all 5 movies and i own them. I love Emma the most so this is totally great news!
