No Quidditch in upcoming Harry Potter flick :

Harry Potter fans have been left upset by news that the wizard sport Quidditch won’t be in the next film. There’s just too much in the 800-page book of the Order of the Phoenix film to squeeze into the film, so bosses had to drop Quidditch. Producers of the film say if they put everything from the book in the film it would be seven hours long. The move means we won’t see Ron Weasley in goal for Gryffindor, or hear the crowd chanting “Weasley is our king”. Filming is currently still taking place on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, with the film expected in cinemas in July 2007.
