twilight_galleryteaser.jpgThe decision that has Harry Potter fans in mourning–Warner Bros. Postponing the movie release of “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince” until July 2009–turns out to be a boon for Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” fans.
“Twilight,” the movie, was moved up three weeks and now releases on November 21st (Woohoo!) and now Bella and Edward devotees can get their on-screen fix earlier than originally planned.
Stephenie Meyer, always the sweetheart and diplomat, had this to say about the decision to supplant Twilight for HP:

“So, many of you have heard that the release of the sixth Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, has been moved from this Thanksgiving to next summer. First and foremost, please know that this schedule change has absolutely nothing to do with Twilight, me, or Summit Films (so enough with the imdb death wishes, okay?). This is Warner Bros. decision, and it was not motivated by anything Twilight-related. Now for the good news! Though we’re all sad to have to wait for Harry Potter, this open spot at the theater creates a cool opportunity. The good people at Summit were thrilled to let me know that now Twilight fans are going to get their movie three weeks earlier than scheduled. That’s right–Twilight will be released in theaters November 21st! Let the merry-making commence!”


In the meantime, perhaps Twilight fans can keep themselves fed on HBO’s “True Blood” series, whose star vampire is turning out to have a similar, old-fashioned approach to romance as our beloved Edward Cullen in the “Twilight Series.”
