New E-Mail System on

Posted by jenna on 30/08/05

In an attempt to make things even easier for all of our readers, we've implemented a new “Contact Us” capability. Hopefully this will allow you all to get responses faster, and they will go to the right person right away. (Everything used to go to me and I had to forward everything manually – that's why it took so long sometimes!)

The form itself allows you to choose from various subjects ranging from Submit News, Photos, Videos, to Comments, Technical Issues, Radnet Forum/DR Chat or ACED Magazine issues/questions/comments. The subject you choose will determine the person e-mailed.

We have included a file attachment capability for your convenience. You can attach one file per e-mail. Take a look and get familiar with our new contact system HERE.

We hope this will make things easier for everyone, and we hope you enjoy the new feature! NOTE: If you enter the wrong e-mail address we cannot reply to you!

New Newsletter From Dan

Posted by jenna on 28/08/05

The German website Wollstrumpfs Harry Potter Page received a new newsletter written by Dan from one of their readers.

I will not post the scan until a later time so those of you who wish to write him will have a little bit of a surprise when you get it, but I will post a few highlights from it.

Dan talks about his vacation to Melbourne, Australia (where he celebrated his 16th birthday). He did various fun things while there, including scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef, and a photoshoot by the famous Luna Park fairground.

He recently saw the movie CRASH and CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. He is listening to bands like Hard-Fi, Editors, Dogs, and Sufjan Stevens. And of course – he read a few books that came out over the summer, including HBP (which he thought was fantastic by the way ).

If you want to read more please do write to him – if you don't the newsletter will be posted in our newsletter gallery in a few weeks after other fans have had the chance to receive their copies.

I know some of you will complain that I haven't posted the entire scan of the newsletter, but it won't do you any good – that is my policy and I won't be changing it – even if it is posted on other sites.

Matthew Lewis Talks About Dan

Posted by jenna on 28/08/05

Recently, MuggleNet did an online chat with Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom). He was asked a few questions that had a little something to do with Dan, this is what he had to say:

Question from Megan
Do you ever feel less important and/or at competition when shooting with Daniel Radcliffe?

Not at all! Dan is really great and a good friend of mine. He does his job very well and competing with him would be quite tough so I wouldn't bother (coz I am lazy like that) also, because everyone is so great with each other there is never even a thought of competition anyway. More often that not I ask him if what I am saying sounds right or if I have the line right. And do I feel less important? Not at all, Harry Potter is Harry Potter. Also, Neville plays his own part in the story, and in some cases it is an important part so, no I don't feel less important at all! smile.gif

Another question that concerns Dan, that many of you had been wondering about:

Question from Aalia
Why have all the Harry Potter Boys (You, James, Oliver, Dan, Rupert, Tom) grown your hair long? It's as if it's a new style in the Harry Potter World?

You know, I have no idea. I was just told to grow my hair for Alfonso Cuaron (Director of PoA) so we did. I guess he liked it, an so did Mike Newell so it stuck. You are right though, it is strange isn't it?

Daniel Radcliffe: The Magic Behind the Muggle – NOT Authorized

Posted by jenna on 23/08/05

We learned about this new biography coming out about Daniel over a week ago, and it has been confirmed by Warner Bros. that this publication is NOT authorized by either them, Dan or his family.

I did not want to post about this initially because I didn't want to bring attention to it, but I have been getting quite a few inquiries about it over the last few days as this news spreads across the web.

So let me just say once more, if you do venture out to buy a copy of this book – please be aware – it is NOT authorized. This means anything you read in the book may be fabricated or untrue. Read at your own risk. (I'd advise against it – they won't have any information that you won't get from here and at least here you know what you're reading is true and it doesn't cost you anything!!!)

GOF International Teaser Trailer

Posted by allo on 17/08/05

Many thanks to Veritaserum for sharing a new video clip of the international teaser trailer for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which was shown on GMTV in the UK yesterday morning. Unfortunately, the quality of the clip isn't that great (although we've tried to clean it up a bit) and you already saw most of the new footage in the Extra clips the other day but this does have a couple of new scenes and does not have any voiceovers by announcers!

More proof, as if you needed it, that the Harry Potter franchise is growing up: Warner Bros. announced today that Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has received a PG-13 rating from the Motion Picture Association of America for sequences of fantasy violence and frightening images.

GOF Buzz from Chicago Advance Screening

Posted by allo on 05/08/05

Last month, lucky HP fans in Chicago were treated to a secret advance screening of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. For those of you who can't wait to see the movie for themselves (i.e. everyone here), here's some early buzz to whet your appetite!


"I have to say that this is my favorite HP film to date…. The new additions to the cast are perfect. The film has a quick pace and keeps your attention throughout. Actors really have gotten down their roles and play them very comfortably…. I believe that audiences will absolutely love the new approach to Potter. It's fun, fast, fresh, and familiar. "

Note: This is an extract from an extensive review that recently appeared on Canadian movie site The review is pretty spoiler-intensive so we recommend that you don't try to find it if you don't want to have all your surprises ruined!! However, if you're still curious, you can read an edited version of this reviewer's comments by clicking on the Full Story link below. Thanks to The Snitch for the tip.
