Just a few months left before Part 1 comes to theaters. Okay, 5 months, but it will fly by. I just saw the new trailer today and it seemed time to start a thread!! According to the trailer we will have Part 1 in Nov 2010 and Part 2 July 2011. I feel like it will be an agonizing wait between the two parts.

I'm going to have to read the book again before November. At this point I'm still a little perplexed by the two-film decision. I'm curious where they will break between them. Is there enough early action to keep the first part interesting? I hope they don't add a bunch of pointless junk to fill out the two films. The most frustrating aspect of the last film for me was the scene they added where the Weasley home was burned because it didn't add anything to the story. My hope for this is that we get some of the detail they have left out of the past films due to time constraints without having them add a ton of unnecessary stuff in an attempt to make the film "flashy". Maybe they could give some more of the background info on Voldemort (left out of HBP) while they are finding out more about Dumbledore (part of DH)...?
