Sure, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is coming to a theater near you on November 18, 2004, but after you've checked it out, why not tune into an old favorite? Make this a full-fledged wizard weekend by catching Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on ABC at 8PM on November 19, 2005!
One of the great things about sequels (there aren't actually that many), is that you've already been introduced to the whole idea, the concept and the characters.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - The GoodsAs sequels go, I am very happy to report that Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is even better than the first.
