Release date For Next Harry Potter!

The movie, that is. I got all excited by the headline thinking the last book had a release date, so I thought I'd make you suffer too. "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" doesn't come out til July 13, 2007 (next summer). But they've already announced a release date for the movie AFTER that. "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" will come out on Thanksgiving weekend, ie. November 21, 2008. Of course, they can't film the final Harry Potter movie until JK Rowling actually finishes the book, so presumably they won't announce a release date for that one. But 2009 is surely what they'd shoot for: Daniel Radcliffe will be 19 then, so he'll be 18 when it's filmed, just right for a kid graduating from high school.
