In Celebration of Harry Potter!

Happy Harry Potter week!  

With the final movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, debuting July 15th, 2011, this little blog will be celebrating all that is Harry Potter!  While I was a reader well before Harry Potter, I can't help but agree that the Harry Potter books have made a huge impact on readers and writers, both young and old.
And in terms of the movies?  The Harry Potter movies are perfect examples of what all movies adapted from stories should strive to be.  Smart adapting, perfect casting, and a talented production crew have truly made these movies worthy of the term 'classics'.  And the impossible feat of getting the same cast members back year after year?  I only hope that when I succeed in the entertainment world, I can find such a wonderful cast of actors who care about my project so much that they keep their ego's in check and stay with the production!

Harry and his story will be alive for years and years to come and I'm very happy that I got to experience the whole 'Harry Potter' era from beginning to end.  And literally I mean from seeing the ARC of 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone', to attending special midnight events, working midnight events, and finally, to soon seeing the final movie!

So, stay tuned for more fun filled Harry Potter posts!

That's cool that you got to read the ARC of the first book. I started reading the Potter books when Goblet of Fire was new out, and Pottermania really kicked off. I've been rereading and reviewing all the books the last couple of books in preparation for the final film. Never did the midnight thing before, but it looks like I'll be going to the midnight showing of this film - my last chance!
