Lucky fans in Italy will get the chance to see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince a few days early before it opens wide, as the sixth Harry Potter film will be screening at the Giffoni Children's Film Festival in Italy on July 12th. On the official website it reads:

We will open the new Giffoni with Harry Potter. We could not have wished for a better start - says the artistic director Claudio Gubitosi -. On the 12th of July the Festival's audience the children and youth, will have the opportunity to take part in a huge event and for this I wish to thank the President of Warner Bros Entertainment Italia, Paolo Ferrari, and his entire team for choosing Giffoni”.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince opens wide here in the US and in Italy among others on July 15, 2009. You can see a list of opening dates, here.

Unfortunately I can’t go, my parents wouldn’t let me. But yay for those who live nearer to Giffoni.

Does anybody know if it will be shown in english? I know it seems silly, but I think everyone has had enough time to dub the movies for the july release…

Of course it will be dubbed… and even though I am Italian, I will just wait for the official release like the rest of the world… in a kind of sympathy act :-) and anyway, we’ve all been waiting for ages, what’s a week – or two – difference?

Guess That Book

It was his fault Sirius had died; it was all his fault. If he, Harry, had not been stupid enough to fall for Voldemort's trick, if he had not been so convinced that what he had seen in his dream was real, if he had only opened his mind to the possibility
