That’s great!
But are they going to promote BONNIE, at all? Geez, nobody knows her yet (outside the fandom) and they gave more publicity to Katie than to the girl who’s going to play HP’s wife.. They better start doing something, otherwise people will only notice her when they watch the film.

Just to add to the nitpicks about the “World Premiere”: GOF has been shown in Australia twice on free to air TV (including just last Friday) and multiple times on pay TV – so, it’s not a World Premiere.

This is awesome however this is not the network premiere of Goblet of Fire on ABC Family they gave if the first time a few months ago I just don’t remember when! I search the cable every week just in case they are showing it somewhere!! Happy Pottering!

If you don’t live in the U.S. or don’t have a TV, don’t worry because this website is very good at uploading videos especially when there is a fair amount of warning that new video is going to be released. I never tape these things because I know they will appear online very quickly.

This is great news. I’ll be there to tape the commercials so I can keep watching it. They must of meant that they are going to show snape as the new defense against the dark arts teacher, and as well as Professor Horace Slughorn. I hope they show some quidditch scenes. But I’m glade they are going to show the love thats going around Hogwarts. Can’t wait. So excited.

………Guess what Micheal Gambon is going to say……..

I am just excited that Michael Gambon will be giving an Interview!! No one ever seems to be able to talk to that man besides on the DVD Special Features!! I love Gambon now ( I didn’t at first) and I think he’s going to be fantastic in HBP…his performance in POA was great, he just looked like a nasty old bum…he was horrid in GOF and pretty good in OOTP.

This is not the world premiere! GoF has already shown on ABC Family previously! Plus, to echo what most on here said, Sluggy is the Potions teacher, not the Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher! Oh well…

Ummmm… Isn’t Slughorn a POTIONS teacher not a DADA???

Are they only going to show it during GOF or are they going to show it through all of the HP movies?

I’m going to add to the nitpiciking about the world premier thing. Just yesterday i saw GoF over here in Mexico on Televisa Canal 5, in HD none the less. Jeje. It was in spanish.

So yeah, it’s not exactly going to be a world premier on ABC.

Technically it is a world premiere. It is a world premiere of the new ABC Family version with the deleted scenes back in it. Yeah ABC and ABC Family showed the theatrical release, but not this new version. So it is a world premiere.
