Avatar ImageNatalie says: I.CAN'T.WAIT!!! This book was so exciting!! I hope the movie will be too!Avatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: I wonder how they will know about the sword in the film, though. if i remember correctly the reports after the test screening said that Phineas wasn't in the film.Avatar Imagethundermountain7 says: As the end comes closer we must not get sad because the fandom we have created will last forever. I can't wait for the movie it is getting so closeAvatar ImageJulietBlack says: This is getting soooooo exciting, but, i dont want the movies to end :(Avatar Imagetaoist1 says: More movie trailers, please!!Avatar ImageGryffindor_Girl_xx says: I really want to see the Deathly Hallows films but then there will be no more coming out ... it's hard to come to terms with ... Harry Potter films and books have been around since before I can remember ... I've loved them since I was 6!!! They really are the best. I just hope the 7th book is done justice x)Avatar ImageSmitch says: Nice quote! Makes the wait that much more exciting! Who chooses the quotes every day? They seem to be drenched in meaning...which I love! Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: I can't wait! Phineas Nigellus, annoying but cruelly honest........Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: phineas shouldnt be giving away secrets like that albus wouldnt mind thoughAvatar ImageRosie016 says: I am so excited about this movie, Sometimes I jump up and down!!!!!!! Great quote, gives up very valuble information!Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: *CAN'T WAIT! HURRY UP NOVEMBER!*Avatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: Excited!!! YAHA!! :-)Avatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: I screamed when Nigellus said that!!Avatar ImageSusmita singh says: I simply can't wait, the book was so exciting and i believe the movie would too, but hey! I read here that Phineas wouldn't be in the movie. Is it true? He is an important part of this book.By the way, i love this quote. Phineas is not bad, its only about him being a Slytherin member and nothing much. Avatar ImageSusmita singh says: Because of my excitement my brother call me mental sometimes, but i am really very excitedAvatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Day 79 and happy start of term, everyone. Oh, to be on board the Hogwarts Express right now!Avatar ImageFresca says: Phineas was a true Slytherin. He was loyal to Dumbledore when he had to be, but really would rather take care of his own skin. He reminds me of Snape, in his sarcasm and his attitude to students. I wonder how the trio will get the information about the sword, if not from Phineas?Avatar ImageSquib2917 says: The First look recap mentioned something about voldemort visions and dreams explaining the nature of the remaining horcruxes since they weren't explained in HBP movie as in book. My guess is they did something similar to explain that the sword is imbued with basilisk venom. CAN'T WAIT!!!Avatar Imagepotterlady says: That part was like "wow" and "no he didnt"! LOL! Phineas not trying to help?!Avatar Imagenikki0408 says: CANT WAIT FOR THE MOVIE!!!!!!! Everybody thinks i'm mental ;-)Avatar Imagesnunkiebrian says: Oh thats such a fun bit of this chapter such excellent quotes your pickingAvatar ImageDawna says: I am sure the line will be attributed to someone else. Or else Hermione will have a brainstorm about the sword absorbing the basilisk venom without any sort of prompt.Avatar ImageSlyBones says: I loved Phineas in this book. LOLAvatar Imagez999993 says: So sad the movies will be over soon, but i can't wait until DH comes out! I think you only get like a glimpse of Phineas Nigellus in the 5th film so i wonder how they are going to do him in this one. Avatar ImageMudblood_and_proud says: OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!!! can they release it SOON??? the second it has finished editing, just show it in the movies!!! also when part 2 ends, i will cry and scream @ the same time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOUTUBE: mudbloodandproud1996Avatar ImageSindi says: How exciting! :D only 79 days its seems like just yesterday we were at the 100 day mark... Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: I just cant waitAvatar Imageazaadpotter says: I just cant waitAvatar ImageCustard says: I love Harry Potter and all my friends call me crazy, but honestly, i cried when I saw the trailer for this film. My whole wall has got posters of the deathly hallows on it and i actually wet myself once when dad said that there had been a fire on the set( Not liturally, i just needed to go to the bathroom really quickly)Avatar ImageCustard says: I CANNOT WAIT Avatar Imagedevilskinn says: I just can't imagine how the movies will be able to capture all of the book's details (because most of the them or very important, like this one, cause it specifically mentions what weapon to use against Horcruxes). It should be interesting! I'm excited too... But I am also kind of sad because it might well be the last movie we'll see Rupes, Emma and Dan together, so it's like saying goodbye to two beloved trios :-s Avatar Imagecttboyd says: All right Phineas!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: I think I hyperventilated there!Avatar Imageeccentricalice says: Dun dun dun! I think the up-himself Phineas Nigellus character is quite funny, shame he's been cut out of DH moviesAvatar Imageksddancer says: That was such a heart stopping moment! I loved it!Avatar ImageLaura Potter says: Can't wait for the film, I know none of my friends will understand it cos they don't read the books, so I'll have to spend the hour after the film explaining everything to them :-P It's sooo good when everything's explained at the end, and your finally understand the diary, the prophecies etc, just have to see the film NOW :)Avatar Imagelunaisawesome says: "i know this could end real bad but/ i wish it didnt/ have to end at aaaaaaaallllllllllllll...." ~Hank Green, summing up the moment in Accio Deathly HallowsAvatar Imagelizzyrc says: they always do a great job staying true to the books! I hope this is no exception!
