Don’t know if it’s been mentioned on here already. This is going to be the world premiere of the “extended edition” of Goblet of Fire…the movie has obviously gone through the pay channels like HBO as much as 2 years ago, and has been on ABC Family a few times in the last year…just not this “extended” edition. I don’t know exactly what that all entails, probably just another insertion of the deleted scenes from the DVD into the original version of the film. That means it will probably be 10 minutes or so longer than the original version (I won’t spoil the added scenes for those who don’t have the DVD). It would be cool if once in a while, when they do these longer editions, they somehow got hold of deleted scenes that didn’t even make it to the deleted scenes section on the DVD…for example, on the Sorcerer’s Stone DVD, during some of the “making of” footage, you can clearly see a scene being filmed that takes placed at Platform 9 and 3/4, just before Harry gets on the train, and you can see Neville Longbottom and Dean Thomas, in muggle clothes, waiting on the platform, which shows that in the original cut of the film, Harry probably had a scene where he met those two on the platform first, similar to what happens in the book.

They claim it’s never before seen footage and behind the scenes shots, but I’m willing to bet there will be plenty of already seen footage and interviews included. We might some new stuff, but I doubt ALL of it is parts we haven’t already seen on the OoTP DVD and in the trailers!
It’ll be something to watch next weekend at least while decorating the X-mas tree!

I wish I was in America to see the HBP stuff but I live in Australia.

Also, this says that ABC Family is having the world premiere of gof but it played last weekend in Australia. So how can it be the world premiere if its already been shown?

It would be really cool if someone recorded the extra HBP stuff for people not in America and put it on youtube.
