"Harry Potter" fans are upset that the game quidditch (is a fictional airborne ballgame played on broomsticks, a sort of  magical variant of football or polo) will not be featured in the next movie.

According to, producers have removed the game from the The Order of the Phoenix because the novel is the longest in the series and they could not put in everything. A source at the studio said, "If we included everything the film would be seven hours long."

Many upset fans posted messages on Potter websites after hearing the news.

One of them wrote: "This makes me mad. I loved that part in the book and quidditch plays a pretty big part."
