Hey, we got Beedle a whole day later (in Spanish, because they’re idiots). Finally something on our favor. Thing is, movies are almost always released on Thursdays here.

What? Some countries get to see it sooner?!
Hm, I would be mad, excluding the fact that we have been waiting for almost 300 days, so what difference does another 2 days make?

And I have a question: (Sry to double post)
why do the UK and US have to wait longer to see the movie if it is in English?

this may be based on time zones and some countries need translations which takes more time and actors :) thus the time difference of release dates
