Cool that OoTP is finally airing on tv.
I wish it was on ABC Family though but I guess that will be next. Hopefully when it airs on ABC Family it will be the extended version! :)

I turned on SS when it was playing on ABC last weekend and it was the Ollivander's scene and Harry picked up one wand which didn't work and then the next one was miraculously his lol They cut out the 2nd attempt lol

I thought that scene was odd!

The first cut was Hermione telling Ron he had dirt on his nose (on the train as she's leaving their compartment).

Figuring the actual running time of SS, 152 min., there's 28 min. left for commercials, but with the cuts that's probably more like over 30. OotP is such a lousy movie to begin with (IMO), I'd hate to think what the ABC version is going to be like.

They cut the ends of scenes a lot when they play it on ABC. It is almost unbearable, in my opinion. Especially when i can just watch it on dvd.

Yeah, it makes me wonder how they will do OOTP. The film is already short and choppy enough as it is! :lol:

Re: ABC Family's Versions of the HP movies
 
That's a good point. There are no ends to chop off for OotP. I don't know what they'll do. All i know is that SS was unbearable to watch on ABC the other day. I changed the channel when i saw it as i was flipping through.

It wasn't just PS/SS. I've watched COS, POA and GOF on ABC for the past couple of years and they are all chopped up.

The editing of CoS was terrible. The movie jumps from the Burrow directly to the bookstore with Lockhart. There's Harry with ashes all over his face without any explanation! :no::no:

I watched CoS on ABC once. I noticed there was a few extra scenes and i was intrigued. However i just cannot stomach the commercials and the edits. D:
I so want those Ultimate Editions though...

They are worth every penny :). I cherish them like I would a puppy.

So there was a commercial on ABC Family that they are going to show all the movies (1-5) between Thursday and Sunday, but...

They also said there would be a World Premiere trailer for Deathly Hallows.

Now, what are the chances that this will be a new trailer, and not the one that was on the HBP DVD?

I believe that Snitch Seeker has already confirmed that is in fact the one on the DVD.

Just posted that on here :). The clips of DH are the ones from the HBP DVD.

I saw on a site, it says...

Quote:

Along with a weekend full of wizarding fun, ABC Family will be premiering a two-minute never-seen-before on television sneak peek of the upcoming film "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" throughout the weekend event.
"Never-seen-before on television" is the most obvious bit there.

Re: ABC Family's Versions of the HP movies
 
Is the extended OoTP on ABC Fam just the deleted scenes added in? Or will there be more that we havent seen possibly?

MasterOfDeath March 19th, 2010 8:19 pm

Re: ABC Family's Versions of the HP movies
 
Who knows if they extended OOTP at all yet. It took about 2 years after GOF first aired on ABC family for them to put the deleted/extended scenes from the DVD back in. I'm not getting my hopes up that OOTP was extended.

Unless since OOTP is Yates's film, it was easier to get the OKAY from him to extend? GOF was Mike Newell who has left the franchise so perhaps it was more difficult to get his permission to extend it? Does anyone know if PS/SS and COS were extended the first time they aired on ABC family?

Re: ABC Family's Versions of the HP movies
 
They said OotP was to have "never before seen in theaters" scenes in it. Also ive seen the snippits of the DH stuff in commercials. Im watching CoS right now.

Re: ABC Family's Versions of the HP movies
 
i'm looking forward to seeing the deleted scenes added in to Order of the Phoenix! I don't know how reliable this is, but ABC Family has it showing from 8-11 (3 hours) and they only had 2 1/2 hours alotted for GoF.
