Save HP & the Goblet of Fire! sign now

It has come to our attention that your studio has asked screenwriter Steve Kloves to condense the book Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire into one two-and-a-half hour movie. As loyal fans of the books, we feel this is a mistake.

There are many important scenes in the fourth book that must not be sacrificed. These include the death of Frank Bryce, the Quidditch World Cup, the appearance of the Dark Mark, the introduction of the Unforgivable Curses, the selection of the Triwizard Tournament champions, Rita Skeeter and her antics, the First Task, the Yule Ball, the Second Task, the children's visit with Sirius at Hogsmeade, the Pensieve memories, the Third Task, Voldemort's return, the duel and Priori Incantatem, the revelation that Moody is Crouch Jr., and the final scene when the Order of the Phoenix is called back into action. For all of these vital scenes to remain intact, this calls for another solution.

If the studio insists on one movie, then please make it three-and-a-half to four hours long. This length would be acceptable to the majority of Harry's fans. Plus, longer movies have done well at the box office. Audiences have proven they will sit through an epic-length film, if it is done well. Titanic and the Lord of the Rings films are prime examples of this, and with the large fan base, Goblet of Fire would also do well.

However, in our opinion, the better option would be to break the film into two movies, as has been done with Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions. One appropriate breaking point would be at the end of the First Task. With two movies, each could run around two-and-a-half hours, which allows more showings per day at the theatres, and also allows a total running time of around five hours, which would be apt for this adaptation of the book.

We sincerely hope that Warner Brothers reexamines its stance on Goblet of Fire. There are millions of loyal Harry Potter fans worldwide, and the studio should feel the need to deliver us a quality product. We carry a lot of financial clout, and if we feel this movie will cut apart our beloved story, then we're afraid the majority won't be in the theatres. This is not a threat, merely a concern. All we ask is that you reconsider.

Thank you for your time.

    Country U.S.A. I was highly disappointed in POA when most everything was changed. I would NOT enjoy sitting through a 2 and a half hour movie that doesn't even go along with the book. Even if it means dividing the movie into 2 parts, so be it. That would

    Country USA I realize that transferring a book to the screen is extraordinarily difficult and that yes, scenes need to be cut, rearranged, or completely rewritten in order for them to be appropriate for their new medium. However, I believe that, as with
