Two very different movies open today: Winnie the Pooh and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Will you be seeing either or both?
Disney knows they are not going to win in box office numbers or theater attendence given the phenomena that is Harry Potter. Take a look at this video from Disney Animation:
They also posted this video:
A very cute response as only Disney can look on this in regard to how overshadowed their movie is as it comes out the same day as the last Harry Potter movie.
I will be going to see Winnie the Pooh this weekend. Will I be seeing Harry Potter? Probably…but maybe not this weekend.
I am of the Harry Potter generation, I grew up reading the books as they came out and even waited in line for midnight releases of the books. Interestingly, or maybe not, the movies failed to capture me as a fan. I have seen all the previous movies up to this point, and even went to some midnight releases. After I read the final book it did not fulfull my expectations after reading, and waiting for, the series over so many years. I enjoyed the series because of the delay in books and the expectations/desire that created, but disliked the series resolution because I had higher expectations due to all the build up. Oh well, that is how it goes – I know many who feel very differently about Harry Potter.
Hope you guys enjoy this crazy movie weekend!
