It's time for more Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya news! The official website for the film has confirmed that Haruhi will disappear for 150 minutes, on the previously announced date of February 6, 2010. Yup, you read that correctly; the Haruhi film's running time is two and a half hours... approximately equal to seven episodes of the TV series.
The few fans Haruhi has left are quite excited by this news. Running time was one of the major concerns upon the initial announcement of the movie; many were fearful that the plot of the original novel would be condensed to fit the length of the film. That concern has been mostly alleviated by this announcement. It would seem as if Kyoani is trying as hard as they can to please their remaining fanbase.
Can this film restore Haruhi to it's former glory? I'm still skeptical, but I'm willing to give it a chance.
