Earlier this week, rumors began circulating from various sources that the release date for the UK had been moved back a few months. After the change was confirmed by eOne, the UK distributors, that the release would no longer be Feb 19th, but in fact in April… outrage followed.
And whilst UK fans are campaigning to get their release date back, a new release date change has been announced.
Vampire Academy will release a week earlier in the US, on Feb 7th.
Despite heavy marketing for the Valentine’s Day release, the decision has made US fans very happy, who now only have 3 weeks to wait. Check out these reactions from the #VAfamily on Twitter.
But while some are happier, some are feeling even more dejected than they were before. Fans feel sorry for the UK.
And some are just mad. Where just a week ago the fandom was happy, now it seems it’s divided.
A full list of release dates for your country can be found here, on IMDb.
A very exciting New Year’s for the #VAfamily as they got their first official clip from the upcoming movie.
Sami has nailed it. She’s got all sides of Mia we were hoping she would achieve. That vulnerability bubbling under the bitchy surface. I hope that settles people’s angst over her hair – we love this Mia!
Okay… DRAGOZERA FEELS. Lucy as Lissa gave us chills. And the way Christian protects her?
Dominic is just perfect. Defensive and sexy. Swoon…
Rose! The way she just swoops in there… Zoey is absolutely flawless. #HathawaySwag
And of course, the Rose-Mia punch to the nose. This clip was edited, so we can’t wait to see the full scene! A fan-favorite on the big screen. 🙂
“I’ll fire-magic you into ASH!”
“Allow me, Mr Ozera.”
“Why are you Dragomirs SUCH drags?!”
With just over a month left to wait until this highly anticipated movie hits the cinemas, we are very happy with this first look at footage!
Thank you to Lucy Fry Source for uploading the clip for international viewers.

Yes, you have permission to freak out!
Rose and Dimitri still, people!! OMG, AREN’T THEY PERFECT?
Could this be the infamous black dress? Is that the necklace?! Oh wow, they’re just so stunning! Rose, Lissa and Natalie! We love you!
And finally, one of our darling Rose! Is this a school uniform or a guardian one? Is that an emblem? Is that Natalie in the back? And what does the writing say?
SO MANY QUESTIONS! AND SO MANY FEELS! And we still have yet to hear about our challenge later today! August 13th will go down in history for the VA fandom!
