Deathly Hallows? Hrm.........trying to think of any references from other books, but I'm coming up short.

I know two people die. That's all I know.

I read a quick blurb that said that Order of the Phoenix was being released in July. Is that true?

Would it be too much to release the 5th movie and the 7th book within a month of each other?

I think I might explode from excitement.

I think the title might be a reference to "Godric's Hollow", the place where Harry's parents where killed.

Probably. I thought about that, too. If I had to guess, that'll be where it all ends. I had thought it would end outside of Grimmauld Place, since that's where the missing Horcrux is located, but with a title like that...who knows.

I don't know...I kinda think Rowling's best titles were those that were constructed "Harry Potter and the Noun of Noun," with my favorite being "Order of the Phoenix."

I get a kind of "Phantom Menace" vibe to this title--not bad, but not great.

So am I wrong, or is this title loosely translated into "deathly ghosts"?

I read in that in an interview with Rowling after announcing the title to the 7th book that she "wished she was Harry Potter". Not that surprising, eh?
