Split, Release Dates, General Comments:    


  
Release Dates

It was announced by Warner Bros and David Yates that the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be made into two separate movies. The films are set to hit theaters on:

Release DatesUS and UK
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 - November 19, 2010 [source]
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 - July 15, 2011 [source]





Why the Split?
  • In an interview with Vanity Fair, director David Yates explained why the last book will be made into two films:
    Quote:
    Why did you and Warners decide to split the last installment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows into two parts?

    Three reasons. One is it’s a huge book so there’s so much stuff in it. You go through the list of things you want to put in the movie and there’s so many huge set pieces that by the time you get to the end of it you kind of go, “Whoa this would be the most expensive movie of all time.” Far more expensive than any conventional blockbuster. You have to find a way of somehow keeping all the things you want to do, so it is easy to split it across two films. [Screenwriter] Steve Kloves was working on the adaptation as we were shooting Half-Blood Prince and he just rounded us up and said, “Look guys I am having a real problem stuffing this story into two-and-a-half hours. I think narratively this might suit two parts.” There was that. I get frustrated when fans say, ‘Why didn’t you put this in or put that in?’ So it was a combination of the adaptation process and the fact that I just want to give the audience everything we can from the book, basically.
  • The films will be shot back to back over a course of 54 weeks. Filming officially started on February 15, 2009. Both movies will probably be two and a half hours each. [source].

Splitting Point
  • According to another interview with David Heyman, the split will be ''An Emotional and Very Truthful" break of the two films.
  • In an interview with The Los Angeles Times, director David Yates hinted to where the split might be:
    Quote:
    "We're here in the forest, we've just finished the scene where Harry, Hermione and Ron are captured by the Snatchers after being chased through the woods. The Snatchers are brutal and scary but they aren't the most intelligent of creatures.They're trying to figure out exactly who it is they've caught."

    ...

    I asked Yates if he had decided on the splitting point -- the juncture at which the seventh film will stop.

    "Yes, I think we have," he said. "Things can change when you edit, of course, but the idea now is that it will be not long after the sequence that we are filming here today. That's what we're experimenting with. We've had three or four different ideas about where to cut off the seventh film. Traditionally, the movies have ended with a death or a bereavement, some sort of passage or arrival. This time we think we will end with more a cliffhanger. Again, though, that's the thought as of this moment."
  • In a recent interview, Joshua Herdman, the actor who plays Gregory Goyle, said that the current plan was to split Deathly Hallows just after the trio are captured by the Snatchers and right before they are taken to Malfoy Manor. Many fans had speculated this is where the split would be, as it will provide quite a cliffhanger between films. Please note that - while this may be the current plan - the director and producers have made it clear that they could very well change where they had been thinking of splitting it if they thought a different point worked better after filming was complete.[source]
  • Producer David Heyman was asked about the splitting point in an interview with Empire Magazine. Here's what he had to say:
    Quote:
    Well that's interesting. We've played around with a couple of places, and ultimately settled on a place that we think is very exciting, and I think quite bold, in that it's not necessarily where one might expect. But I don't want to reveal where it is. You want to give a sense of completion, on the one hand, but a sense that there's another piece, more to come. So yeah we tried one and then Steve [Kloves] came up with the idea to try it another way, and when we tried that, it felt just right.
    [scan of interview]
  • In an interview with Mugglecast, producer David Heyman spoke about the splitting point.

    Quote:
    The script was written with an end in mind. The first draft was written with one ending and then as we developed it it went to another ending and then we reverted in part to the original ending because we felt that it allowed us a more emotional conclusion. I felt like it was more complete as it were but we've added this other scene which i think is really amazing. I can't tell you where the break is, i'm sorry, but i do feel that it'll be incredibly dramatic, very moving and will make people want to watch the next film.

    We've seen Part 1 three times in the most rough form since we've finished shooting and things become clear to you when you read it in the script. Things become clear when you see it in a cut version of the film. It became clear when we looked at the first cut that the ending wasn't quite what we wanted it or we thought it could be better and i think we've ended up in a much much better place.
  • The split point was revealed in a preview piece of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in Entertainment Weekly.
    Quote:
    Part 1, by the way, will end at about Chapter 24 of the book, with Voldemort gaining possession of the Elder wand, one of the three Deathly Hallows that allow the bearer to conquer death.

General Comments

David Yates

On Deathly Hallows: Part 1:
  • Yates called Part I a road film, saying it was dynamic, adrenalised, and visceral. He continued, “It’s a refugee story about three kids cut off from everything they know and everybody they love, being pursued relentlessly by people who want to murder them.”

On Deathly Hallows: Part 2:
  • “A big opera, a great big epic, with huge battles.”


Steven Kloves

On the split:
  • Screenwriter Steven Kloves gave a bit of a hint about the split, saying it was the most sound creative decision on where the split occurs. He also stated that the split will give a proper send-off to certain characters, “It should allow us to stretch a bit with the characters and give them the proper send-off.”



Jason Isaacs

On the transition from book to film:
  • "This franchise goes out in an epic way," he concluded. "I think the end of the films will be a fantastically cinematic and visual feast and it will more than satisfy the readers of the books, but what you won't get is the book on screen. You will get something more and different."



3D
  • Two reliable sources in Nikki Finke and The Hollywood Reporter have reported that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 will be shown in 3D. This has now been confirmed by Warner Brothers.

    Quote:
    Additional titles in 2010 that will be released in 3D (in addition to 2D) include Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (July), Guardians of Ga’Hoole (September), and Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows, Part 1 (November) -- and I'm told Part II as well at a later date

    Said Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros Pictures, in the announcement, “We are experienced and have been successful in the conversion of 2D to 3D going back to such hits as The Polar Express, select scenes in Superman Returns and the last two Harry Potter films.” Fellman continued, “The results for Clash of the Titans will be presented onscreen with the highest-quality images available today.”

    Jeff Robinov, President, Warner Bros Picture Group, said, “We’re excited about 3D and look forward to bringing a rich, involving visual experience to audiences around the world.”
    [source]
  • Part 1 will not be released in 3D:

    Quote:
    "Despite everyone's best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality. We do not want to disappoint fans who have long-anticipated the conclusion of this extraordinary journey, and to that end, we are releasing our film day-and-date on November 19, 2010 as planned. We, in alignment with our filmmakers, believe this is the best course to take in order to ensure that our audiences enjoy the consummate 'Harry Potter' experience.

    Producer David Heyman said, "For 10 years, we have worked alongside Alan Horn and the studio, whose priority has always been to preserve the integrity of Jo Rowling's books as we have adapted them to the screen, and this decision reflects that commitment."

    Director David Yates continued, "This decision, which we completely support, underscores the fact that Warner Bros. has always put quality first."

    As scheduled, on July 15, 2011, we will deliver to conventional and IMAX theaters our final installment of the film franchise, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2," in both 2D and 3D formats.

Re: The All-Inclusive DH Part 2 List

Chapter: 25 & 26 - on 29 June 2011 updated Chapter 25 & 26

Chapter 25: Shell Cottage:    


  

Spoilers from the test screening on the opening scenes:    


  
  • A test screening report from Rachezee.
    Quote:
    WB logo looked finished. Opening scene is of Voldemort getting the Elder Wand (repeat of ending of DH1) then Snape at Hogwarts, and the TITLE, then Dobby's grave with Harry standing there, and Shell Cottage. We see Bill and Fleur. Bill explains how the house has been used as a safe-house for the Order. We see Luna here as well. Then Harry talks with Griphook and then Ollivander.
  • In a report from Edward on the test screening.
    Quote:
    How did the film open? There is a little bit of a recap from the end of Part 1 where Voldemort is seen standing over Dumbledore's grave. Then it officially opens after the WB logo at Shell Cottage.

    The scene with Harry sitting down with Ollivander? That's among the first five minutes but that isn't the first scene. The first is Harry at Dobby's grave.

    The first new footage was Snape, now Headmaster Snape, perched up on the tower somewhere looking at the regimented Hogwarts students being filed across the courtyard.

    What do you mean regimented across the screen? Do you mean like a concentration camp? Yeah. There were strong vibes. You know like the Carrow brother and sister marching them across the courtyard all in complete lockstep. Hogwarts is very dark and gray and gloomy.
  • There was a second report from mugglecast on the test screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, of interest are details on a beginning scene at Hogwarts.
    Quote:
    There is no scene with Harry, McGonagall, and the Carrows in the Ravenclaw common room? Where they spit on McGonagall? No. That does not happen. In fact the Carrows exist in the movie but they have no lines. One thing about this film is that Hogwarts is shown so much that even in the beginning of the film you see students actually marching in rows of like five and columns of four. They're marching to and from their classes with Snape presiding. The idea that Hogwarts is now a police state. The idea that these students are being suppressed is already being conveyed by what you are seeing on screen.
  • In a report from LeakyCauldron on the test screening is mention of the opening scenes of the film.
    Quote:
    Following a short montage of Voldemort taking the Elder Wand from Dumbledore's grave, the film opens with Hogwarts Headmaster Snape observing as students are marched, in lock step, across a courtyard in the castle. We are then taken to Shell Cottage where Harry, following the burial of Dobby, speaks with Griphook and Mr. Ollivander.

    The film opens with now Headmaster Snape looking out from a tower at the regimented Hogwarts students, as they march in Third Reich-ean lockstep across the courtyard of his Dementor-guarded castle.

    Harry is then seen at Shell Cottage at Dobby's grave, full tombstone text is visible.
  • In a report from mugglenet on the test screening. audio
    Quote:
    What did you think about the opening? What surprised you? The opening is the tomb. We see Voldemort breaking in and getting control of the elder wand. And then it jumps right into the action. With Harry interviewing Griphook and Ollivander separately about the future about what he wants to do.

    One thing that kind of bothered me was that Harry does not refer to Griphook by his name in the movie. He says “bring me to the goblin”. And the point behind that is that movie viewers don't really know his name so they just figured let's call them the goblin. One of the first lines in the room is “I don't know if you remember but...” and then Griphook says “I was the first one that brought you to your vault when you first came to Gringotts.” So they do make that connection.


  



Voldemort Takes the Elder Wand
  • In Deathly Hallows Part 2 they are going to show some part of the scene where Voldemort takes the elder wand from Dumbledore at the beginning of the film. These are screencaps from Deathly Hallows Part 1.

Hogwarts with Students and Snape
  • The second theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest is a shot of dementors floating around Hogwarts. This is thought to be a transition to the scene where Snape is watching the students march in Hogwarts. [video]

Griphook Trades Information for Sword
  • There was a featurette released during the Harry Potter weekend called 'The Story'. Of interest was a shot of Griphook at shell cottage with Ron and Hermione in the background. [video]
Screencap of Griphook:    


    


  • A featurette called Gringotts and Goblins was released, of interest is the trio speaking to Griphook. Harry says "I need to get into Gringotts. Into one of the vaults." Griphook respnds "There are more then a few curious things in the vaults of Gringotts." [video]
  • Photos of the filming at Shell Cottage with Warwick Davis as Griphook have emerged. There is one of interest showing Griphook carrying the sword of Godric Gryffindor. This confirms that the sword will be given to Griphook in exchange for helping the trio to plan and infiltrate Gringotts Bank. [source]
Photo of Griphook carrying the Sword of Godric Gryffindor:    


    


  • A featurette called Gringotts and Goblins was released, of interest is a shot of the trio on the stairs at Shell cottage discussing the idea that horcrux may be in Bellatrix's vault. Hermione says "You're thinking there is a horcrux in Bellatrix's vault?" and Harry responds "Let's find it. Kill it. And then we're one step closer to killing him." [video]
Screencap of the trio on the stairs at shell cottage:    


    



Trio Speak to Ollivander
  • There was a featurette released during the Harry Potter weekend called 'The Story'. Of interest were shots of Harry speaking to Ollivander at Shell Cottage. Harry asks 'What do you know about the deathly hallows?' Ollivander responds 'It is rumored there are three.' and later 'You really don't stand a chance.' [video]
Screencap of Harry speaking to Ollivander:    


  



  


  • One of the opening scenes of Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released in the extras of the DVD and blu-ray for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and here is the dialogue. [video]
    Quote:
    HARRY: I need to ask you a few questions, Mr. Ollivander. You talk about wands as if they have feelings...can think.

    OLLIVANDER: The wand chooses the wizard, Mr. Potter. That much has always been clear to those of us who have studied wandlore.

    HARRY: And what do you know about the deathly hallows?

    OLLIVANDER: It is rumored there are three. The elder wand, the resurrection stone, the invisibility cloak. It is said that to possess them all is to make oneself the master of death. But few truly believe that such objects exist.

    HARRY: But do you? Do you believe they exist, sir?

    OLLIVANDER: Well I see no reason to put stock in old wives' tale.

    HARRY: You're lying. You know one exists. You told him about it. You told him about the elder wand and where he could go looking for it.

    OLLIVANDER: He tortured me. Besides...i only conveyed rumors. As there's no telling whether he will find it...

    HARRY: He has found it, sir...we'll let you rest.

    OLLIVANDER: He's after you, Mr. Potter. If it's true, what you say, and he has the elder wand...I'm afraid...you really don't stand a chance.

    HARRY: Well, I suppose I'll have to kill him before he finds me then.
  • There were photos from a sticker book released, of interest is a shot of Ollivander holding Draco's wand in Shell Cottage. This suggests the possibility that the above scene of Ollivander speaking to Harry may have more to it then was shown on the dvd.

Shell Cottage
  • There were photos from a sticker book released, of interest is one of Luna at shell cottage.

Chapter 26: Gringotts:    


  

Spoilers from the test screening on Gringotts bank heist:    


  
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of the infiltration of Gringotts.
    Quote:
    How do the trio find out that the Hufflepuff cup is a horcrux? They realized that Bella was hiding something in her vault and assumed that was it.

    Do the trio get burned in the Gringotts vault? If so, how severe is it? What is the outcome? If they don’t get injured, how does that scene play out? Does the treasure still multiply every time it’s touched? No, they don't get burned. You just see the cups multiply at every touch.
  • In a report from Edward on the test screening.
    Quote:
    How was Gringotts? It was really good. It was definitely a roller coaster experience. That was something that wasn't finished. A lot of CG there. They go through Gringotts pretty quickly. They have about a minute and a half doing the Bellatrix/Hermione character switch and then they go through that waterfall then she is back to being full Hermione.

    There is one scene where they are hiding out in a corridor before going in. You can see she has Hermione's mannerism with the breathing and the eyes and all that. And there was this very funny moment when Hermione as Bellatrix is walking through the silence of Gringotts' main corridor in the high heals and she stumbles every other step because she is wearing Bellatrix's five inch heals. That was a pretty cute moment and it brought it back to that's Hermione trying to walk in five inch heals.

    Is it Hermione's idea to jump on the back of the dragon? They are sort of trapped with the Gringotts security forces coming at them and then Hermione spies the dragon. She jumps right on and beckons for them to join her.
  • There was a second report from mugglecast on the test screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, of interest are details on the Gringotts heist.
    Quote:
    How do they know the cup is in the bank? Harry says it out loud. They assume because Bellatrix was freaking out about them being in her vault that there must have been something of Voldemort's in there or something special. I think they even mention the diary. That he gave the diary to Lucius so why wouldn't he give something to Bellatrix. That sort of thing. It is almost because of her overreaction in the previous film that they are able to guess.

    But once they go in the idea that Harry is a horcrux is very hinted at in the whole film because he has a connection to the horcrux where he can hear the parseltongue. He almost has a spidey sense that allows him...so they get in the vault and it's a huge vault, tons of stuff in there, but Harry is able to kind of concentrate and walk around a bit. It's the same way he finds the diadem in the room of requirement. He hears the whispers from the horcrux and is able to locate it. It is what we have heard in the films before.
  • In a report from LeakyCauldron on the test screening is mention of the scenes at Gringotts.
    Quote:
    The scene inside Bellatrix's vault was done as it was in the book, with the multiplying of objects overtaking the room. The dragon guarding the vaults was old and rickety, with signs of abuse and neglect apparent. The dragon bursts through the dome of the bank and flies over London.

    Warwick Davis does extremely well as Griphook and gets to truly flesh out the conniving goblin part of his role. The film moves quickly onto the Gringotts heist scene, where we see excellent work by Helena Bonham Carter who picks up on Emma Watson's nervous sighs and mannerisms as she pretends to be Hermione pretending to be Bellatrix.

    For the first time in the films, there is a special effect used to fade Harry and Griphook in and out of the scene under the invisibility cloak. Harry and Griphook become translucent in several shots in order to indicate their invisibility and location in relation to the others. The cart ride down to the Lestrange vault offers more loops and spins than the most intense roller-coaster out there. At the bottom of a particularly deep cavern we see the old, abused, and neglected dragon guard, as--clangers in hand--the group makes their way into the vault. Inside, the multiplying artifacts quickly make the massive room cramped, but allow Harry to ride the growing tide of objects to retrieve the Hufflepuff cup. While all the special effects were not 100% finished, this looks to be one of the coolest sequences in the film.

    After escaping from the vault, Hermione jumps onto the spiny back of the dragon--Harry and Ron close behind--and rides the creature out through the glass-domed top of the bank over London.
  • In a report from mugglenet on the test screening. audio
    Quote:
    Getting into the Gringottts scene. Hermione playing Bellatrix playing Hermione. It was a short scene. I would have liked that scene to be a little bit longer, the build up. Because all of a sudden Hermione is walking up the hill and actually it is Helena Bonham Carter. I thought at first that Hermione hadn't changed yet because Helena Bonham Carter has matched Emma Watson to the point that you are looking at Helena's face and it looks, she looks like Emma Watson. I couldn't distinguish the two. I really felt like it was Emma Watson when it was clearly Helena Bonham Carter.

    Another fun book moment they included was when Hermione said “good morning” to somebody in diagon alley and Griphook said “Don't be polite. You are Bellatrix. Don't forget.” And then she turns [nasty].

    Gringotts. Everything from the mine cart ride which was partially completed to the dragon and the vault.

    What did you think about the vault scene? I was pretty impressed by the multiplying gold. The way it was animated. The way the gold actually multiplies in the vault is how I think you would expect it to work when you are reading the book. One thing that doesn't happen is in the book the gold is very hot. I don't remember hearing any lines like “oh it's hot”.

    The multiplier does serve the purpose of being an enchantment that prevents people from stealing, obviously, and it is an adequate obstacle for Harry. He has enough going on. Griphook wants the sword in exchange for even breaking them in in the first place so they've got a lot to deal with.

    The escape on the dragon is great. Film viewers don't know that Griphook wants the sword until it actually happens in the film whereas in the book you know it ahead of time.

    That's not true. They totally argue for it when they are back at Shell Cottage.

    But you don't know why. It's not explained why in the film, why Griphook wants it. In the book they get into the goblin lore. They are very possessive of their items.

    They just didn't mention Godric Gryffindor. There's a line in the book he says just because Gryffindor owned it doesn't make it his. Because it's made by goblins they believe it's theirs. I think something to that effect is stated.

    I don't think we could fairly review it yet because a lot of the special effects in that scene were not complete yet. Just from the reaction of the goblins when the dragon escapes that's going to be a heck of a bang to start the film off on.

  • A teaser of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was shown at the MTV awards. Of interest is a shot of Harry standing beside Dobby's grave at Shell Cottage. This is thought to be on the same day that the trio plus Griphook disapparate to Gringott's Bank. Luna joins Harry beside the grave where they speak before she disapparates: [video]

Disapparation to Gringotts Bank
  • Two Potter fans were able to visit the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at Leavesden studio and we learned from their report:
    Quote:
    Photos were seen of Ron. The report says 'from the looks of this, they will actually be putting very realistic prosthetic makeup on Rupert. In the final stage makeup picture of him, you would not recognize him as Rupert.'
  • Actor Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange) confirms the transformation of Hermione Granger by polyjuice into Bellatrix Lestrange for the break in of Gringotts bank. 'For Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Helena also helped Emma Watson by inviting the actress to her house to talk through a scene where Bellatrix becomes Hermione after taking a magic potion. Helena wanted to know everything about Hermione in order to get the transformation right.'
  • Filming at Shell Cottage on location at Pembrokeshire, Wales. On set were Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (Ronald Weasley), Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), Domnhall Gleeson (Bill Weasley), Warwick Davis (Griphook), and Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange). They were filming the scene where the trio with Ron in disguise and Hermione impersonating Bellatrix by the use of polyjuice potion disapparate to Gringotts bank. [photos]

    In the photos after Luna disapparates Harry is joined on the hill by Ron in disguise. Hermione polyjuiced as Bellatrix, and Griphook carrying the sword of Gryffindor join them. Hermione points her wand at Ron's face, maybe to complete the disguise. Harry, Ron, Griphook, and Hermione then join hands in a circle to disapparate to Gringotts bank.

    Of interest is Hermione as Bellatrix carrying the beaded bag.

    Hermione impersonating Bellatrix comes up the hill pulling out her wand and points it at Ron. This may suggest that they will attempt to shock the audience by keeping the plan of Hermione impersonating Bellatrix through the use of polyjuice potion a secret until she strides towards Harry and Ron with her wand out on the hill.

Gringotts Bank
  • A featurette called Gringotts and Goblins was released with a lot of behind the scenes footage of the scenes at Gringotts. Of interest is Hermione as Bellatrix, Griphook acting evil, the cups multiplying, and the trio talking after the dragon drop. [video]
    Quote:
    Dialogue from the Featurette: Hermione: You're thinking there is a horcrux in Bellatrix's vault?

    Harry: Let's find it. Kill it. And then we're one step closer to killing him.

    Griphook: There are more then a few curious things in the vaults of Gringotts.

    Harry: I need to get into Gringotts. Into one of the vaults.

    Ron: Is it in here, Harry? Can you feel anything.

    Harry: We're relying on you, Griphook. If you get us past the guards and into the vault the sword is yours.

    Head Goblin: Madam Lestrange.

    Hermione as Bellatrix: I wish to enter my vault. I don't like to be kept waiting.

    Head Goblin: Very well Madam Lestrange. If you will follow me.

    Harry: That's it. Up there.

    Harry: Give me the sword.

    Griphook: I said I'd get you in. I didn't say anything about getting you out.

    Harry: Griphook.
  • At the San Diego Comic Con there were props from the films, of interest was a photo of the Hufflepuff cup which the trio find in Gringotts bank:

  • It was confirmed that Mike Edmonds will be portraying a goblin charged with guarding Gringotts Bank.
  • Two Potter fans were able to visit the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at Leavesden studio and we learned from their report:
    Quote:
    Scenes with 'lots of Goblins' are about to be filmed.
  • There was a promotional video for the Harry Potter Film Wizardry book released, of interest is a shot of the teller room in the bank. [video]

  • The sixth tv spot was released, of interest is a shot of Harry with Griphook on his back as Ron puts the invisibility cloak over them in Diagon Alley. [video]
  • There was a behind the scenes video released of Rupert Grint (Ronald Weasley) in his disguse in the atrium of Gringotts bank. Of interest is many goblins walking around behind him.
Screencap of Ron in disguise in the Gringotts atrium:    


    


  • Actor Jon Campling will play a death eater for the scenes where the trio infiltrate Gringotts Bank. He seems to be talking about being in a scene with Ron in disguise and Hermione as Bellatrix as well as Harry under the invisibility cloak at Gringotts bank. It seems he may interact in some way with them in the bank.
    Quote:
    Can you say who you worked alongside with? CAMPLING: I probably can, yeah. I did a little bit alongside Helena Bonham Carter, though not necessarily alongside Bellatrix. I also worked with Griphook, Warwick Davis.

    So you worked with Helena and Warwick, did you get to work with Rupert and Dan as well? CAMPLING: Rupert, very briefly. But alas, not Dan, although I did meet [him]. On the day I was working with a scene that he's in but he didn't need to be there for the filming of it - "he said, dancing around the plot there, slightly." But I was in another scene where I'm dead and covered, COVERED in blood. They really were throwing it around by the bucketloads. When I went to get cleaned up I didn't even realize that he'd turned around. The guy at the sink before me, washing the blood off his hands, was Mr. Radcliffe.
  • There was a photo released of Ron in disguise and Hermione polyjuiced as Bellatrix looking very nervous during the Gringotts bank heist.

Chapter 26: Gringotts (continued):    


  
The Bank Vaults
  • The First Official Teaser Trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released with footage from both parts. Of interest is some shots of Harry, Ron in disguise, Hermione polyjuiced as Bellatrix, Griphook, and another unknown person in the cart in the vaults under Gringotts. The fifth person behind Griphook is another goblin who helps the trio get into the vault. [video]
Screencaps of the group on the cart in the vaults under Gringotts:    


    


Screencap of the Ron and other goblin on the cart:    


    


  • A featurette was released of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows during the ABC Family weekend, of interest are shots of the trio on the cart in the Gringotts bank vault. Notice in the last shot the trio enter the waterfall and Hermione turns back into herself. [video]
Screencaps of trio on the cart:    


  

  


  • The seventh tv spot was released, of interest are shots of the trio on the cart. Harry pulls a handle on the cart which causes all of them to fall. Hermione yells a spell stopping their fall inches from the ground. Ron yells “That was brilliant.” [video]
Screencaps of the trio falling from the cart:    


  



  


  • The second theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest is a shot of Ron and Hermione wet in their disguises from Gringotts. Ron says “That doesn't sound good.” This is most likely right after they drop out of the chart and when they start to hear the dragon. [video]
Screencap of Ron and Hermione in the vaults:    


    


  • A set report from collider mentions the set of Bellatrix's vault at Gringotts bank.
    Quote:
    We went to a new set they were building which was the Lestrange’s vault at Gringotts bank. If you’ve read the book, you know a major sequence takes place in the vault. While the location was still being built it looked like a dirty grey cave, but that could easily change.
  • There were photos from a sticker book released, of interest are shots of the trio, Griphook, and another goblin in Bellatrix's vault looking for the Hufflepuff cup horcrux.
Photos of the trio in Bellatrix's vault:

  • There was a photo released of Harry with the sword of Gryffindor in a pile of gold objects in the vaults of Gringotts bank. He is most likely reaching for the cup with the sword.
Photo of Harry with the sword in the Gringotts vaults:    


    


  • In a report from Cinema Con there is mention of the scenes at Gringotts.
    Quote:
    We see the three main kids riding on the magic cart through the caverns of Gringotts Wizarding Bank with a goblin in order to retrieve another horcrux, but then the cart is blasted and they start falling to the ground, but Hermione calls out a spell that leaves them hovering mere inches from the cave floor. A lot of the footage focuses on a giant white dragon and we see Hermione getting the crazy idea to jump on it's back and we see them flying on it until they jump off it's back into the lake outside Hogwarts and we see them walking away from it soaking wet.

Trio Escape Gringotts
  • In a report by comingsoon from the ShoWest Convention is mention of 'footage of the kids being chased by a dragon'. [source]
  • Director David Yates discusses Deathly Hallows Part 2: [source]
    Quote:
    So you’re hearkening back to your gritty days of State of Play? DAVID YATES: Yeah, indeed. In Harry Potter Seven Part One, very much so. But, of course, Hallows Part Two brings that fantasy world back in full cinemascope. It’s full of dragons, and big wizard battles, and magic. To keep the thing interesting for me as a filmmaker, I want to serve the wonderful stories Jo has given us but I need to move it around a bit. I can’t feel that I am making the same film. Tonally, I need to shake it up a bit. Like Half-Blood Prince had a lot more humor in it than Order of the Phoenix and that was important for me, and I think it was important for the audience to not get the same journey. And Hallows Part One will feel very different than Half-Blood Prince.
    This confirms that the dragon will be kept as part of the scene where the trio break into Gringotts.
  • In a report by Cinemablend from the ShoWest Convention mentions the dragon: [source]
    Quote:
    We saw little bits of everything, from the seven Harry Potters escaping from the Dursleys house (totally surreal) to the attack at Bill and Fleur's wedding to the escape from Gringotts on the pale dragon.
  • Actor Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) mentions Harry jumping off a building. It is thought she may be talking about the scene in Gringotts where the trio jumps from a ledge to get to the dragon's back.
    Quote:
    I've had moments exactly the same with Dan where I've just been amazed, I mean particularly with a lot of the stunt work Dan's had to do in the last movie. He's fearless and he'll just launch himself off a building, all this stuff, and I'm just gobsmacked that he just gives it everything, and it's really admirable, definitely.
  • Actor Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) talks about a scene at Gringotts where the trio jump from a balcony onto the back of a dragon in order to escape Gringotts bank.
    Quote:
    In all the movies, there have been some amazing action sequences. What was the scariest stunt you had to do? EMMA WATSON: There's a scene where we're in Gringott's Bank and Hermione has this crazy idea to jump on the back of a dragon. She's on this second story balcony and she jumps off the balcony onto the dragon's back and doing that stunt was terrifying because I essentially had to jump off—it was a mat that caught me—but just doing the jump and everything was pretty scary.
  • In a report from Cinema con there is mention of some of the dialogue at Gringotts when the trio jump onto the back of a dragon to escape.
    Quote:
    There was footage of a battle with the white dragon, and Hermione cries, “We can’t just stand here. Who’s got an idea?”

    “Don’t ask us,” Ron squeaks. “You’re the brilliant one!”

    “I’ve got something, but it’s mad,” she says, and before she can explain it she dives through a stone archway onto the back of the beast.
  • The second theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest is a shot of Hermione running to hide with Ron and Harry most likely right before they jump on the dragon's back. [video]
Screencap of Hermione running in the vaults:    


    


  • The second theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest is a shot of the dragon knocking the cart of the tracks with the trio on it's back and causing various goblins to fall from the cart. [video]
Screencap of the dragon knocking the cart of the tracks:    


    


  • A teaser of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was shown at the MTV awards. Of interest is shots of a pale dragon with chains around it's neck breaking through a wall in the Gringotts vault. [video]
Screencaps of the dragon at Gringotts bank in the vaults:    


  

  


  • A featurette was released of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows during the ABC Family weekend, of interest is a shot of the dragon coming through the floor into the atrium room at Gringotts. [video]

  • The First Official Teaser Trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released with footage from both parts. Of interest is some shots of the dragon in the teller room at Gringotts as well and the dragon perched on top of the bank: [video]

  • The first theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest are shots of the trio on the dragon as they escape Gringotts bank. The dragon seems to shoot fire in the atrium of the bank. [video]

  • A mini clip was released of the dragon escaping from Gringotts with the trio on it's back. [video]

  



Chapter 27: The Final Hiding Place:    


  

Spoilers on the test screening about final hiding place discussion:    


  
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of the conversation on the hill after the trio drop off the dragon.
    Quote:
    When the trio get to land after they get off the dragon, soaking wet, does Ron say “they might know we broke into gringotts”? And do they have a moment of laughter afterwords? They get mad at Harry because he let Voldemort into his mind and that’s how he found out.
  • In a report from Edward on the test screening.
    Quote:
    Is it Harry that realizes what the horcruxes are? Yes. The interesting thing is that they really play on the Harry/Voldemort link. That Harry allows himself to go into Voldemort's mind and he sort of sees as each of the horcruxes are being destroyed. Sort of he can see where like "oh this one's at Hogwarts" because he can see it in Voldemort's mind.
  • A test screening report from Rachezee.
    Quote:
    After the trio jump off the dragon, it's like Harry is drowning but he's seeing through Voldemort's mind as Voldemort realizes all of his horcruxes are destroyed. We see each one being destroyed.
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of Voldemort going berserk at Gringotts. This takes place in a flash memory that Harry sees after the trio drop off the dragon and are in the water.
    Quote:
    What happens when Voldemort finds out the trio are hunting Horcruxes? Where is he? The next thing we see is him [Voldemort] massacring Gringotts.
  • In a report from LeakyCauldron on the test screening is mention of Harry's flash/memory that shows Voldemort going berserk on the people at Gringotts.
    Quote:
    When Voldemort finds out about the bank heist, he goes on an murdering spree of all the Death Eaters and Goblins-- including Griphook, save for the Malfoys. The sword of Gryffindor then vanishes from Griphook's dead hand.

    We get the first of many mind/memory connections between Harry and Voldemort in a riveting inter cutting of Voldemort killing a large number of his Death Eaters with Harry, Ron, and Hermione swimming their way to shore after dropping off the back of the dragon. It seems as if the Malfoys are the only ones standing after the Dark Lord learns of Harry's trip to Gringotts and takes his anger out on his followers. Even Griphook doesn't make it out alive. In this mind/memory connection, we see a quick glimpse of the Grey Lady and Hogwarts in Voldemort's mind, informing Harry on his next move.


  


  • We do know that the scene at Gringotts is confirmed and afterwords Harry, Ron, and Hermione do go to Hogwarts which suggests that they learn somewhere that the final unknown horcrux is at Hogwarts which is essentially what happens in this chapter.

Trio Drop Off of Dragon
  • As stated in the list for the previous chapter a dragon has been mentioned by director David Yates, therefore, suggesting that the trio will escape by flying on a dragon.
  • The second theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest are shots of the trio dropping off of the dragon into a lake. Harry says "Let's say we jump. Now!" [video]
Screencaps of the trio dropping off the dragon:    


  



  


  • The first theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest is a shot of the trio dropping into a lake most likely after they jump off of the dragon that they escape Gringotts on. In the lake and while Harry is swimming to the shore he will have a flash/memory of Voldemort attacking death eaters, Gringotts guards, and goblins. [video]
Screencap of the trio in water:    


    



Voldemort Attacks Death Eaters and Goblins
  • Actor Jon Campling will play a death eater for the scenes where the trio infiltrate Gringotts Bank. He also mentions a scene where he is laying dead at Voldemort's feet.
    Quote:
    Campling mentioned that he will be seen in the final installment of the series, Deathly Hallows: Part 2, alongside a disguised Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley, Helena Bonham Carter as Hermione Granger, and Warwick Davis as Griphook, at Gringotts, where his Death Eater will once again be trying to halt the dubious acts of the three heroes and their goblin companion.

    Campling gave his own personal experience of being embraced with ease by the cast and crew around him, especially Helena and Warwick. More on Campling's experience on the set of Deathly Hallows including laying dead as Voldemort cried out some of his harsher threats to his enemies in the eighth Harry Potter film.

    Did you get a chance to work with Ralph Fiennes?
    CAMPLING: I was in the same room with him while he was giving his all as a most, MOST disgruntled Voldemort. But I was, unfortunately, dead at the time. So it was quite bizarre. I spent about three hours, laying in blood listening to Ralph bellow and wail and cast aspersions upon his many enemies. Which is a scene I cannot wait to see because when the CGI and everything else is added to what Ralph was doing in the room it is going to come across as quite astounding. 'Manic' is possibly a word that I can use. It was quite something to behold.
  • A featurette was released of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows during the ABC Family weekend, of interest are shots of death eaters in Gringotts. The death eater on the left is Jon Campling who discussed this scene in the last entry. [video]
Screencap of death eaters:    


    


  • The first theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest are shots of Voldemort going crazy at Malfoy Manor and then walking through many dead bodies. Notice Bellatrix huddled by the wall and Draco standing near the stairs. Also notice dead death eaters, Gringotts guards, and goblins. This scene takes place after Voldemort learns that the trio are hunting horcruxes. It is very unclear whether or not there is a scene at Gringotts with Voldemort or just this scene at Malfoy Manor with Voldemort. [video]
Screencaps of Voldemort:    


  













  



Trio Discuss Final Hidding Place

Photo of Ron and Harry behind the scenes of the dragon drop:    


    


  • There was a behind the scenes featurette for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows called 'On The Run' with footage from both parts shown during the ABC Family Harry Potter Marathon. Of interest are some shots of what looks like the trio walking up a hill in the clothes that they wear in the Bank Heist. This seems to be after the trio jump off of the dragon into the lake because the trio seem to be wet. [video]
Screencaps of the trio walking up a hill:    


  

  


  • In a report from Cinema con there is mention of the scene on the hill after the trio drop off the dragon into the lake where they discuss what to do next. It is not clear whether or not the hill near the lake where the trio drop off the dragon is really outside the school or not.
    Quote:
    The footage then cuts to the hills outside of their old school. “We need to get into Hogwarts tonight,” Harry says, but Hermione thinks he’s being rash.

    “We can’t do that. We have to plan. We’ve got to figure it out,” she says.

    But Ron decides they should just charge in, fearless. “Hermione, when have any of our plans ever actually worked? We plan, we get there, all hell breaks loose!”
  • The sixth tv spot was released, of interest is a shot of the trio with Harry changing his clothes after the dragon drop. Hermione says "We have to plan." Harry responds "Since when have any of our plans actually worked?" They are discussing what to do after Gringotts to find the next horcrux. [video]
  • A featurette called Horcruxes was released, of interest are shots of the trio by the lake after they dropped off of the dragon. Hermione seems to be giving them dittany which they rub on their hands. It is possible that the mountains of multiplying treasure do burn them in the vault. Harry is speaking during this scene and he says: "He knows if we find and destroy all the horcruxes we'll be able to kill him. I reckon he stops at nothing to make sure we don't find the rest. There's more. One of them is at Hogwarts." [size'"1"][video][/size]
Screencaps of the trio near the lake:

Re: The All-Inclusive DH Part 2 List

Chapters 28 & 30 30/June/11 update ch. 28 & 30

Chapter 28: The Missing Mirror:    


  

Spoilers from the test screening on Hogsmeade:    


  
  • This is a report from Racheeze on the test screening.
    Quote:
    It is Aberforth who explains about the mirror to the trio in the Hogshead. He explains what it is and how Mundungus stole it from Sirius and sold it to him and Dumbledore told him what it was and to use it to keep an eye on Harry but not to tell him because Harry would be mad Mundungus was stealing his dead godfather's things.
  • A test screening report from Rachezee.
    Quote:
    Aberforth does not use his goat patornus in the Hogsmeade scene but uses a huge tidal wave patornus in the battle instead of Ernie, Luna and the others. He doesn't tell the story of Dumbledore's back-story, only briefly mentions Ariana who's in the portrait Neville comes out of as in the book. He does talk about his brother and how wrong it was of him to send three kids on this quest. He says many of his lines from the book about that.
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of Aberforth speaking to the trio in Hogsmeade.
    Quote:
    What exactly does Aberforth do in the movie? Mugglenet said that his scene in the film is pretty long, but if there is no back story, what’s the reason for him being included? Aberforth condemns Harry about following Albus’ instructions. He tries to tell him to go hide and stop doing what he’s doing. Mentioning stuff about Albus’ thirst for power, stuff like that. But Harry doesn’t listen, so Aberforth helps them out by showing them the tunnel.
  • In a report from LeakyCauldron on the test screening is mention of the trios arrival at Hogsmeade as they attempt to enter the school.
    Quote:
    The trio apparate to Hogsmeade and are saved by Aberforth, who ends up looking a lot like Gambon's Dumbledore. We see Ariana in the portrait above the fire place, and the other half of the Sirius mirror set on the wall next to her. Ciaran Hinds is very good in his brief role.

    Setting off alarms as they apparate into Hogsmeade, the Trio are beckoned inside by Aberforth. Ciaran Hinds gives an excellent performance as Aberforth Dumbledore, and even manages to resemble and emulate Michael Gambon's Albus Dumbledore. Hinds' scene at the Hogshead are chilling as he delivers a monologue to Harry, trying to convince him of Albus' uncaring actions towards Harry. All the while, the portrait of Ariana sits over Harry's head, observing the scene before being sent off to retrieve Neville and reveal the passageway into Hogwarts. A bloody and battle-worn Neville leads them into the castle where the final battle really starts.
  • In a report from mugglenet on the test screening. audio
    Quote:
    The Aberforth stuff. They meet just like they do in the book. Aberforth let's them into his place. And we do get to hear about Ariana but there is no actual talk about how she died. Yeah, there isn't but at the same time Aberforth and Harry talk at length about why Harry trusts Dumbledore and how Albus Dumbledore is not trustworthy. Aberforth talks about him being lustful for power and it is really effective to where in the film Harry says "I don't care what happened to you and your brother, I trust Dumbledore." And it's a really interesting scene. Emotional where you can tell Hines is acting, you know he is kind of hurt by Harry's saying he's not giving up and trying to prove him wrong by completing the final battle. Emotions, tempers are flying, but no goats. There is an absence of goats aren't there.


  


  • Ciaran Hinds has been cast as Aberforth Dumbledore. Aberforth plays a major role in this chapter.
  • A recent fan report described a little bit of the Hog's Head set:
    Quote:
    There is an Animatronic Hog’s head that is used in front of the pub, with the pub set open for cameras and more from recent filming.

Apparating to Hogsmeade

Sticker book: The trio apparating into Hogsmeade:    


    


Photo of the trio in Hogsmeade:    


    


  • A featurette was released of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows during the ABC Family weekend, of interest is a shot of a death eater dancing around in Hogsmeade possibly after the caterwauling charm goes off. [video]
Screencap of death eater in Hogsmeade:    


    


  • A screencap from the Deathly Hallows sneak peek on the Half-Blood Prince DVD features the trio standing in a deserted Hogsmeade. "Undesirable # 1 posters can be seen on a wall. Since the trio are wearing the same clothes in the final battle, we can assume this is right before they meet Aberforth. The fog may be caused by dementors.
Screencap of trio at Hogsmeade:    


    


  • There was a behind the scenes featurette for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows called 'The Story' with footage from both parts shown during the ABC Family Harry Potter Marathon. Of interest are some shots of Harry, Ron, and Hermione coming towards a gate that they seem to be stuck behind. Notice the snow and fog around them which suggests this is Hogsmeade. The trio are wearing their battle clothes in this shot, so it is sometime either when they first apparate into Hogsmeade or during the Battle of Hogwarts. There is speculation that this scene is in Hogsmeade after the trio has apparated into the town and the gate is some sort of new protection to keep people in or out. [video]
Screencaps of the trio by a gate:    


  



  


  • In an ABC Family First look, we get another shot of the trio after arriving at Hogsmeade. They seem to be hiding, presumably from the death eaters.

  • Ciaran Hinds, the actor who plays Aberforth, spoke about his role in an interview with the Hill-Man Morning Show:
    Quote:
    Basically I'm there to play one long scene where I explain to the kids - who are not kids anymore - about some part of the history of Albus Dumbledore's life that they weren't fully up to the mark in. But I did get, for one split second, someone put a wand in my hand and I got to flash it.
  • Ciaran Hinds revealed more about his role as Aberforth in an interview with movieweb.com:
    Quote:
    He is not in it for very long. I must warn you. Again, it was a great thrill just to be in it. He's not that involved in the story. I think he comes in near the very end, where he comes in and saves the gang from being torn apart by Dementors. He actually explains to Harry and Hermione, and Ron, the history of his brother when they were young. Even though he's gotten a few black marks for his behavior. They go through the whole cycle of it. But I'm not sure where that is going to be added to the story. It was a mystery to me why I was thrown into the pot.

    It all looked pretty crazy. My major scene took place in a small room. It was a room under the pub that he ran. It was very much contained, the scene that I had to do. Then I had to shoot for two more days, where they had me running around this huge set. It had been ripped apart in a Morlock battle. It was covered with people running around waving a wand in a certain direction. That was the mad part of it that I just had one day on. Last January. Most of the stuff I did in the film was contained in a small room.
  • The second theatrical trailer was released, of interest is a bit of dialogue where Aberforth is heard saying "It's a suicide mission." He says this to the trio when they speak at the Hogshead. [video]

Chapter 30: The Sacking of Severus Snape:    


  

Spoilers from the test screening on Harry's arrival at Hogwarts and the Snape duel:    


  
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of the opening scenes of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
    Quote:
    Is there a scene which reflects on the “damaged” state of Hogwarts under the Death Eater’s “rule” over the school? Seeing the kids marching military style shows how much the school has changed. And Neville’s all beaten up. They also mention how the Death Eaters were teaching kids how to do the cruciatus curse.
  • There was a second report from mugglecast on the test screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, of interest are details on Neville speaking to the trio when they return to Hogwarts.
    Quote:
    The idea that these students are being suppressed is already being conveyed by what you are seeing on screen and when the trio do get back to Hogwarts, Neville fills them in over everything that's been happening plus he has a missing tooth or a black eye or something. That also helps convey that Hogwarts has not been a wonderful place.
  • A test screening report from Rachezee.
    Quote:
    No history of what's been going on at Hogwarts. Just quick lines from Neville about the Carrows being horrible. We see the room of requirement and the DA. Luna and Percy just show up. There are hammocks in there like the book.

    Harry goes undercover in a Hogwarts school robe and holds hands with Ginny to blend in at one point. Ginny tells everyone that Snape knows Harry was in Hogsmeade.
  • In a report from LeakyCauldron on the test screening is mention of the Snape/McGonagall duel which has been moved to the Great Hall.
    Quote:
    In another fantastic scene which follows, Harry reveals himself to the assembled school and calls Snape out on his murder of Dumbledore. Before Harry and Snape can duel, McGonagall pushes Harry to the side and engages Snape herself. They whip spells back and forth before Snape turns himself into the inky Death Eater smoke and smashes his way though the Great Hall window.
  • In a report from Edward on the test screening.
    Quote:
    The fight between McGonagall and Snape. There is their duel. Different from the book. It takes place in front of the entire school. Headmaster Snape brings the entire school down to the great hall to question them about whether Harry has made it to Hogwarts. And Harry actually sneaks into that area by pretending to be one of the rank and file Hogwarts class members next to Ginny. And Snape is like “if anyone has any information on his whereabouts tell me now”. And Harry like runs out and they stand there and McGonagall pushes Harry aside and duels with Snape who turns into the ink smoke and blasts through the window.
  • In a report from mugglenet on the test screening. audio
    Quote:
    So you see Neville come through the portrait. Ariana brings him. You see the room of requirement. There is a scene coming up now where in the Room of Requirement Ginny enters and says Snape knows Harry is in the castle. Now here is where things start diverting from the book. What happens is Snape summons all the students into the great hall. And Harry decides to go with everybody. He puts on his robes to blend in and goes to this meeting that's being held in the great hall. Snape does the speech in front of everyone. Saying Harry's here, if anyone is found helping him, working with him you will “be punished befitting your treason” so basically the severity to which you help him, the degree to which you help Harry is the degree to which you'll be punished. And also he said "knowledge about his whereabouts will be punished equally", so basically he calls the whole student body out of bed to the great hall and makes these threats.

    And Harry is not standing for it. So Harry jumps out of the crowd. So Harry and Snape begin to duel. McGonagall jumps in, helps Harry. Harry and McGonagall force Snape out and Snape flees and he does turn into the bat like figure. And so obviously what has been cut here is that Harry doesn't go into the Ravenclaw common room to look for the mysterious Ravenclaw related horcrux.

    I think it is very moving where Harry first confronts Snape and says “how dare you stand where he stood?” meaning Dumbledore. And Snape is about to attack Harry and McGonagall has to intervene. I think even with what they did with the Slytherin students. Pansy Parkinson says “someone grab him” meaning Harry. And then the Order who has just arrived closes around him protecting him. I think it's great character moments.

  



Room of Requirement Tunnel
  • Matthew Lewis spoke about Neville's role in Deathly Hallows in an interview with the Yorkshire Evening Post.
    Quote:
    He has become a reckless resistance leader with no concerns for his own safety. He wants to do the right thing.
  • Matthew Lewis spoke about Neville's role and how he has evolved in an interview.
    Quote:
    The teeth and the ears were the first to go, and then the fat suit came shortly after - I look a lot more like him in the new film. I didn't mind wearing all those things because it was appropriate for the character. He's been a bit more bloody and battered as he's been living underground so we've made him slim out.

    Over the years, he has more depth and can stand up more for himself. In the seventh one, he's almost a completely changed man. He's a reckless resistance leader who wants to go and fight, and do the right thing. He's become more heroic, he's got heart, courage and loyalty. He's still not perfect, but he comes through where it counts.
  • During his visit to the National Media Museum, Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) participated in an interview in which he stated that he worked for two weeks earlier in the year, doing a tunnel sequence involving Neville, Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Matt states that during this sequence there was a great deal of dialogue (notably the scene where Neville leads the trio from the Hog's Head to Hogwarts' Room of Requirement). [video]

  • A photo surfaced of students hiding out in the room of requirement. Cots and sleeping bags fill the room.
Students hiding in the RoR:    


  

  


  • A set report from collider talks about the Room of Requirements set where Dumbledore's Army is hiding out.
    Quote:
    As we stepped inside, we were told we had entered the Room of Requirement. In the 8th movie, the room is being used as the location for Dumbledore’s Army, so the room was filled with sleeping bags, hammocks and desks with books and chairs for the students to work on. I’d say I saw 40 or more hammocks at different locations and heights and it should look very cool on screen.

    In the Room of Requirement, I came across books like Winogrand’s Wonderous Water Plants, Gawshawks Guide to Herbology and Quibbler magazines. Also, hanging on the hooks, were Gryffindor scarves and Hogwarts insignia sleeping bags.
  • Actor Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) talks about Neville, Luna, and Ginny leading the resistance at Hogwarts.
    Quote:
    Luna, Neville and Ginny are leading the resistance at Hogwarts. Can you tell us a bit about that? Did you enjoy that character journey? EVANNA LYNCH: Yeah, that was really fun. I love how they sort of take over… when Harry comes back, and he and Ron come into the Room of Requirement, and they’re like, “Oh, look at what they did!” It’s sort of like, um, I can’t remember…boys in a tree house and they have all these sleeping bags and these little statues in it…it’s really exciting. Harry’s the one who’s always taken the initiative.

    Harry, Ron and Hermione, they’re like… “we have to fight”… but now they’re gone and Luna, Neville, and Ginny, they do take over. They realize, they can do something, and what they do is very valuable. All their contribution…so that was nice. It’s not like in the fifth book, where we’re just introducing her. Oh, look that’s Luna, she’s kooky, she’s fun. Luna’s just not in the background. She’s there, she’s helping and she’s fighting.
  • Actor Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) discusses her characters help in taking over the fight at Hogwarts.
    Quote:
    So Ginny, Luna, and Neville are leading a resistance against the Death Eaters’ tyranny at Hogwarts. What was that like to play? BONNIE WRIGHT: It clearly takes courage. This is the thing those three characters step up to, beginning in the fifth film, with the Ministry of Magic and Dumbledore’s Army, and they really take on the responsibility. They’re the only ones left continuing this resistance.

    Obviously Hogwarts becomes a completely different place, it becomes incredibly threatening and stands for everything it didn’t stand for before, such safety, and everything we had there is completely gone. Because we have new headmasters and all these new rules.

    Are they going to succeed? BONNIE WRIGHT: There’s an amazing scene in the second part, where obviously Harry, Ron and Hermione return to Hogwarts, and the other three have made this kind of hideout and haven, continuing Dumbledore’s Army in their own little way. I think that their dedication is pretty amazing, to keep that going, and I think that’s why people kind of love the three of those characters really.
  • A featurette called Horcruxes was released, of interest is a shot of the trio in the room of requirements with Neville, Lavender, and other students. Harry says "There's something we need to find. Something hidden here in the castle. And it may help us defeat you know who." [size'"1"][video][/size]

Snape Speaks in Great Hall to Students
  • Actor Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) mentions a scene with Snape talking to three hundred kids. [video]
    Quote:
    What is the mood like on the set with everyone? ALAN RICKMAN: You have to remember that it's a bit like an army camp. I was saying downstairs, it's an organizational thing, so it's not as if you are there with everybody all the time. I mean I was there a couple of weeks ago and it was just Ralph Fiennes and myself and the crew so I haven't on this last one shot anything with Daniel yet. It's very peace meal. Except I have got a scene coming up with talking to 300 kids, so mainly I won't be worrying about the mood on the set. I'll be thinking do I know these lines.
  • There were some storyboard drawings from Deathly Hallows released, of interest is one of Snape standing in front of what looks like the lectern in the Great Hall.
Storyboard of Snape:    


    


  • A set report from collider mentions a scene where Snape speaks to the students at Hogwarts trying to get information about Harry's location.
    Quote:
    I’m standing in the Great Hall at Hogwarts. I see Snape positioned where Dumbledore used to stand at the top of the steps. As the new Headmaster, Snape is addressing a room full of students. He’s telling them that anyone who knows the whereabouts of Harry Potter – whether it be student or faculty – needs to come forward with any information or the punishment will be severe. Snape continues with the news that the school has the best magic protection and Harry Potter will not be able to enter the grounds. The former potions teacher walks among the students, looking at them, his gaze intense and his dialogue slow and methodical. He’s clearly hoping someone will tell him something. As he finishes saying his last line he looks up because he hears the voice of Harry Potter saying, “I don’t think the protection was good enough.” All the students turn, looking shocked. Harry Potter has returned to Hogwarts.
  • In a report from Cinema con there is mention of Harry confronting Snape in the great hall.
    Quote:
    In the next scene, he is facing Alan Rickman’s Severus Snape in the Great Hall of Hogwarts, challenging him as thousands of students look on. “How dare you stand where he stood!” Potter screams. “Tell them how it happened that night. How you looked him in the eye, a man who trusted you, and killed him!”
  • In a report from Cinema Con there is mention of the Snape/McGonagall and confirmation that she spells the suits of armor alive to defend the castle.
    Quote:
    Inside Hogwarts, Harry confronts Snape for daring to stand in Dumbledore's place after his involvement in the former headmaster's murder. Then we see Snape doing battle with Maggie Smith's, Minerva McGonagall, who then casts a spell to bring a number of armed knight statues to life to help protect the school.
  • The second theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest is a shot of Harry in the great hall wearing Gryffindor robes saying to Snape "Tell them how it happened that night...how you looked him in the eye...a man who trusted you...and killed him."

The Story: Harry in the great hall:    


    



Snape/McGonagall Duel
  • In a report from Cinema con there was mention the Snape/McGonagall duel which has been moved from the Hogwarts corridors to the great hall.
    Quote:
    They showed a scene in the great hall in the battle of Hogwarts of professor McGonagall and Snape facing off against each other. And this happens in the book but it's kind of in a corridor and off hand. What David Heyman told me was that they wanted to put more emphasis on Snape and what he does in the final battle and also his flashback which Harry sees.
  • Producers David Heyman and David Barron discuss the Snape/McGonagall duel as it is in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
    Quote:
    In the footage we saw today, there's a scene of Snape and McGonagall facing off in the Great Hall, which I don't remember happening at all in the book. They do face off, but it's not in the Great Hall. There are a lot of things there that are slightly different from the book, but they are true to the spirit to the book. Snape and McGonagall do face off in the book, but it's in a corridor as Harry's on his way to the Ravenclaw common room. It didn't work the way we were structuring the final battle to have that, so it takes place in the Great Hall. We also wanted to make a bigger scene of Harry's confrontation with Snape. Snape's role in the film is minimal, and it was minimal in the second half of the book, and yet you wanted to have the emotional investment when you see his past story [the memory Harry views in the Pensieve]. We wanted to build that up in order for it to have its emotional impact.
  • Actor Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley) mentions Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) dueling.
    Quote:
    You get to do some actual big fighting in this film. MARK WILLIAMS: Well, yes, we all… there’s a lot of wand work going on, yeah. I’ve just seen Alan do the stuff he’s choreographed, which is very snake-like, very good, very balletic. With Mr. Weasley I sort of opted for a sort of, I put my hand behind my back in a sort of slightly formal fencing manner because I think that’s what he’s like, as he’s ministry-trained. And of course the kids get stuck in, and then most of us are a little bit older than that. And then Julie and Helena’s fight is really spectacular, I have to say.

Re: The All-Inclusive DH Part 2 List

Chapter: 29 - on 30 June 2011 updated Chapter 29

Chapter 29: The Lost Diadem:    


  
  • There are spoilers from the test screening in Protections Around Hogwarts, Voldemort Destroys Protections, and in Luna Speaks to Harry.
  • There will be a lot of switching back and forth between characters and scenes in this part of the film so I have organized it by grouping the different storylines and putting them in order as best I could with what we know.

Protections Around Hogwarts:    


  
Protections Go Up Around Hogwarts

Spoilers from the test screening on the protections of Hogwarts:    


  
  • In a report from LeakyCauldron on the test screening is mention of the defenders of Hogwarts setting up protections.
    Quote:
    McGonagall summons the Knights of Hogwarts, who jump down from the walls of the Great Hall and lineup to stand guard at the entrances of Hogwarts.

    While Harry searches for the Grey Lady, with some sage advice from a surprisingly forceful Luna, McGonagall and the other teachers secure the school. Smith does a top job here, commanding the Knights of Hogwarts to defend the school... a spell she almost giddily admits to being one "[she] always wanted to do."

    For the last hour of the film we are taken along a series of interconnected journeys and battles that are mixed in with flashbacks and mind connections between Harry and Voldemort. It is truly impressive to see how so many different characters and sequences are tied together. Nothing in the last hour felt either sloppy or pieced together. It flowed so well it was as if you were panning around the castle seeing elements of everything happening at once. There are flashes of Percy Weasley, Trelawney, Sprout, and other familiar faces fighting alongside the Order. The entire last act truly feels as epic and thrilling as you'd want it to be. A particular highlight is when Aberforth casts a mega patronus over the castle and grounds to repel a swarm of Dementors that are about to envelop the castle.
  • In a report from mugglenet on the test screening. audio
    Quote:
    Harry one time even goes up to the divination tower. Luna is chasing him and they both see this shield being brought around Hogwarts. Let's talk about this shield. In the movie you do see it. It is cool how it is set up. A bunch of the teachers go outside and are casting this shield. So basically it's this mini montage of these three or four teachers outside reciting the same spell. You seem them uniting and building this big force field. What I liked was the build up of that force field. Also the fortifying of Hogwarts. McGonagall and giant statues.
  • There was a second report from mugglecast on the test screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, of interest are details on the fortifying of Hogwarts.
    Quote:
    Kingsley and Mr. Weasley are in the film and they go around fortifying Hogwarts together. Which is awesome. And Slughorn is in this film a lot. Just shown doing different things in the battle. And McGonagall as we said has many shinning moments. Flitwick too. He actually baracades the front entrance.

    You mentioned that McGonagall had stand out scenes. What was so good about them? As for McGonagall she has a mini speech sort of moment. But she's the headmistress so she does take an orderly role which you'll see.

    You do get a shot of Remus and Tonks. One when they're alive. During the fortification of Hogwarts Lupin and Tonks are up on one of the towers together and right before it all goes down they do look at one another and they sort of outstretch their hands to hold hands during the fighting.

    You see Fred and George on the roof somewhere. They are literally hanging on a roof and George says “You ready, Fred” and Fred says “Yep, born ready” or something like that. That is sort of their engagement to be in the battle.


  


  • There were photos take of the Hogwarts set, of interest are shots of the castle with what looks like some suits of armor missing near the doors. This suggests that the suits of armor will come to life to protect the school like in the book.

Harry/Ginny Kiss
  • Actor Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) mentions filming a kiss scene between Harry and Ginny in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: [video]
    Quote:
    It was kind of odd to do that with someone I've known since they were eight, but this time around much more relaxed, on Seven, we've done another kissing scene on Seven, totally fine with that now because I think it's because I know Bonnie slightly better now.
  • Actor Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) mentions the kiss and looks between Harry and Ginny in Deathly Hallows Part 2.
    Quote:
    In the second part there's war, will there be time for romance between Harry and Ginny? BONNIE WRIGHT: Yes. There's a kiss, I can't say at which moment but there is a kiss. Also, the couple has significant looks and moments that I think will work. We did a good job with Dan (Radcliffe).

Spoilers from the test screening on Voldemort destroying protections:    


  
  • In a report from mugglenet on the test screening. audio
    Quote:
    But also Voldemort trying to take down the shield. He has lost another horcrux and he is really angry and he basically knows he has to break the shield. He puts all his effort into using the elder wand. The elder wand partially cracks and breaks because he is single handedly destroying this shield. He is such a powerful dark wizard so he is able to begin the destruction of the shield more so then any of his followers were. But he is so compelling in his mortality.

    Does Scabior the snatcher die? Yes. When the bridge to Hogsmeade breaks off, he falls with it.

  • Actor Nick Moran (Scabior) talks about a scene where Neville and Scabior face off in the forest near the bridge.
    Quote:
    We spoke to Matthew Lewis, who plays Neville Longbottom, and he said in the new film you two have a fight scene. NICK MORAN: Yeah, we had a lot of fun. I don't want to spoil it for anybody, but Scabior comes back with an army, and you know, it was terrific. It's a whole army, and it's just facing Neville - Neville fending off a whole army. And it's a very very funny scene, a really good action sequence.

    He said it took awhile to film. NICK MORAN: We did weeks and weeks of night shoots, because it is an army, there was literally an army of bad guys, and we meet at the front. Fabulous, just fantastic.
  • In a report from Cinema Con there is mention of the forest battle and the destruction of the bridge.
    Quote:
    We see a scene of the wizards on both sides of the battle racing towards each other in the forbidden forest for the final battle, as well as lots of footage of Hogwarts' destruction and a bridge the group are crossing also being destroyed.
  • The First Official Teaser Trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released with footage from both parts. Of interest is a shot of what seems to be snatchers running. [video]

Nevile Duels Scabior
  • The fight between Neville and Scabior takes place on the wooden bridge and the forest near the entrance. Matthew Lewis was on set when they were filming running scenes near the bridge forest entrance.
  • A fan report from Swinley Forest near Bracknell, Berkshire gives observations on the filming as well as photos of the doorway to the bridge near Hogwarts. Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) was on set this day filming. It looks like they were filming interior shots of the bridge as well as running scenes near the entrance. [photos]
    Quote:
    They were filming chase scenes with free runners - the Snatchers? (he called them Catchers) - running down a slope (i think there's a picture of the slope) towards a crowd of extras, I heard lots of shouting ('Go, go, go!' that kind of thing) which sounded like they were rehearsing the running.

    They were going to be filming this till the early hours of the morning, but it eventually would be edited down to a clip less than 30 seconds long. I assume this could only be something for the Battle, with the many people and the section of Hogwarts nearby.
  • Actor Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) mentioned a scene fighting with Scabior on a bridge. The scene takes place on the wooden bridge and the forest near the entrance because Matthew Lewis was reported on set near the entrance of the bridge.
    Quote:
    So what scenes are you looking forward to seeing in the second film, both involving Neville and not? MATTHEW LEWIS: Well, there’s actually a Neville one that I can’t really talk too much about.

    That’s not in the book? MATTHEW LEWIS: I don’t think so. I don’t think it is. I can’t remember. I read the book three times but I can’t remember if it’s in. I’m pretty sure it’s not. It’s a new one they put in. It involves a bridge, that’s all I can say. Involves a bridge and Nick Moran.

    He’s one of the snatchers. MATTHEW LEWIS: Yes. Scabior, is it?

    Yeah, the one who kind of looks like Jack Sparrow. MATTHEW LEWIS: Yeah, him. It’s a scene with him. It took us weeks and weeks of night shoots and stunts and all kinds of stuff. If it’s all in there – I hope it’s in there because it took us so bloody long to do it – and if it’s all kept in there the way we did it then it’s going to be amazing. That’s what I’m most looking forward to.

    So it’s part of the battle sequence? MATTHEW LEWIS: Yeah. It’s going to be very, very cool, I hope. If it’s in there.
  • Actor Mathew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) discusses Neville's greater part in the battle.
    Quote:
    What sort of thing has been added? MATTHEW LEWIS: Just stuff where you see what the students are getting up to while they're in this war. The book's focused very heavily on Harry Potter. But the film keeps coming back to the students and the teachers and what's going on. And the whole war is very real. It is really life and death. I won't give too much away, but the whole thing for me was just so much fun because there was so much in. There was a bit of light humor at the beginning; a bit of, sort of, French Resistance stuff. But then the war kicks off and there's action to do and there's a lot of drama as well because there are people dying around us, and Neville's in charge of these people who are dying. I just got to do so much different stuff. It was great.

    You've said before in interviews that Neville's seen carrying a dead body. MATTHEW LEWIS: Yeah, that's right. I mean, because Neville is the leader he's determined to act like one so he's always on the front lines. I think he feels responsible for every student that dies because he knows that he's the one putting them out there. But it was a challenge. I really hope they keep it in because it really shows Neville at his best. There's all this fun stuff where Neville's very adrenalised and on autopilot. But that bit brings him back down to Earth for a minute. And I really hope they keep it in.

Luna Speaks to Harry

Spoilers from the test screening on Harry trying to find the diadem:    


  
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of Harry speaking to Luna about who to ask about the diadem.
    Quote:
    Talk about Luna. She appear much? She take Harry to the tower of Ravenclaw? She duel enough? She free Harry from the dementors? She appears. And she’s the one who tells Harry to find Helena Ravenclaw. I didn’t see her duel anyone or stop dementors.

    Harry and Luna go to the Ravenclaw common room? Luna tells Harry to go to Ravenclaw Tower. He goes alone.

    Why does Luna yell at Harry when they are searching for the Diadem? Is it really out of character? She’s trying to get his attention because he won’t listen to her. It’s not out of character.

    How does the Grey Lady explain the history of the Diadem? How does Harry find her? She doesn’t explain the history. They sort of glossed over that. He finds her thanks to Luna telling him about her.
  • A test screening report from Rachezee.
    Quote:
    We never see the Ravenclaw's common room. The Horcrux explanation is very limited. Harry starts to go to the Ravenclaw common room but Luna stops him and tells him to talk to the ghost. Harry does speak with the ghost of the Grey Lady. She tells him to look in the room of hidden things in the room of requirement. Kelly Macdonald is excellent in her performance. She's the only ghost we see in the film. No back story about the Bloody Baron.
  • In a report from Edward on the test screening.
    Quote:
    Do we have the whole Luna dialogue with Harry as they go to the Ravenclaw common room? Luna shows a little bit of chutzpah because Harry is running off to find someone alive to ask about the diadem. And Luna's like “Harry” and starts chasing after him so she goes: “Harry Potter. Turn around and listen to me.” Very very forcefully or something to that effect. She enlightens him to Rowena Ravenclaw. He talks to her [Ravenclaw ghost]. That is a very good scene. Harry convinces her that telling him where the diadem is is the right thing to do.


  


  • There was a behind the scenes featurette for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows called 'The Story' with footage from both parts shown during the ABC Family Harry Potter Marathon.

  • Actor Evanna Lynch mentions a moment where Luna shouts at Harry because he is going the wrong way. Luna just tells Harry about the Grey Lady and then Harry goes alone to speak to her. They do not go to the Ravenclaw common room.
    Quote:
    EVANNA LYNCH: There is one scene where she’s not like herself actually, back to your other question. She feels she has to do something when she knows about where the Ravenclaw Horcrux is. Harry is getting distracted and he is running up the stairs and she’s like, Harry I need to show you something and he’s kind of thinking, here we go again I need some space because he’s in a hurry. She knows he’s going wrong, so I have to scream at him because he just keeps going and I have to actually shout. I thought it was really weird. I didn’t know how to shout.

    A little out of character. EVANNA LYNCH: Yeah. When needs be.

Re: The All-Inclusive DH Part 2 List

Chapter: 31 - on 30 June 2011 update Chapter 31

Chapter 31: The Battle of Hogwarts:    


  
  • There are spoilers from the test screening in Battle of Hogwarts, Forest/Bridge Battle, Ron/Hermione Kiss, Fiendfyre in the Room of Hidden Things, and Fred's death.
  • Actor Ninette Finch was cast as Neville's grandmother, Augusta Longbottom, who is only in the scenes at the Battle of Hogwarts.
  • Actor Emma Thompson has now been spotted on set so this suggest that she will return as Sybill Trelawney in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Battle of Hogwarts:    


  

Spoilers on the battle of Hogwarts:    


  
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of battle scenes for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
    Quote:
    How is Percy’s “redemption” handled? Hardly. We just see him at the end with the Weasleys.
  • A test screening report from Rachezee.
    Quote:
    Wormtail is barely in the film. He doesn't get a death scene.
  • There was a second report from mugglecast on the test screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, of interest are details on some characters from the battle.
    Quote:
    So how is the Trewlaney scene? It's brief. She's in the great hall. I don't even know what she is doing. She's talking to somebody else, but you see her. The camera doesn't even focus on her but she's there.

    She doesn't have a line? She has a line, but it's to somebody else. She doesn't hit anybody with frying pans or bottles of sherry or anything like that.

    She doesn't hit Greyback in the head with a crystal ball? No.

    Do we see Gwarp in the film? No one is identified as Gawrp. There are giants that we see. A lot of giants look uglier then Gwarp, but I think I saw an overpass of Gwarp coming down the hill to fight in the battle. But no one's identified.

    But the giants are on the death eaters' side? Yeah. That's why it is so massive. To see the students at Hogwarts battling these giants because it takes quite a few of them. But at the end of it all there are giant carcasses over the bridge and stuff. Sprawled out across the grounds of Hogwarts.


  


  • Producer David Heyman mentions that the final battle will be very character driven:
    Quote:
    Ultimately, what makes these books work, what I love about the books, is that for all the spectacle, for all the adventure, (there are) the characters. Part I will be 'the road movie' with the young stars on the run. The final battle comes in Part II. And what we are trying to do in this final battle, as much as we can, is root it in characters. For me, it’s really all about the characters and it’s about the people who are battling and, if you’re invested in that, that is what will make it work.
  • Producer David Heyman discusses in small part the final battle of Hogwarts: [source]
    Quote:
    The ending of Book 7 is really climatic in so many ways. Is that going to be like a 20-minute part of the movie or a 30-minute part of the movie? Have you guys already started thinking about that? DAVID HEYMAN: Absolutely. I mean we’ve got a script version of it. I think it’ll probably be 30 minutes, they get to Hogwarts fairly early on, but there’s a lot of build up before the battle happens, you know? And there are 2 parts to the battle. There’s the first part and then there’s the post-death of Harry part, if you know what I mean.

    I know exactly what you mean. DAVID HEYMAN: Yeah, so in a way there’s a couple of different parts to that battle.

    Well, it’s almost like the ending of Book 7 and the ending of movie 2-part 2 is almost like what people have been waiting for all the movies to see, which is the big, big showdown.DAVID HEYMAN: It’s funny, yes I think that’s true and the showdown will be…that poses its own challenges in terms of adaptation. Not only the expectation of that final showdown but also what I love about Jo’s work is that’s it’s emotionally rooted. And in the book, actually, Harry doesn’t do much fighting back. In fact, he’s…I’m not going to use the word but he has the 'blank' beaten out of him. I just said well, there’s more engagement in our version of the final battle.

    I was going to ask you about that because that’s one of the things, to me, is amazing about the ending of that book is that Harry accepts his fate without knowing what’s going to happen. It can go either way, you know? And it’s sort of he’s… DAVID HEYMAN: That’s true up until…when he’s reborn, Harry is aware that Voldemort is vulnerable and is a defeated man. And that’s something that we’re wrestling with and determining right now just so that it works in cinematic terms and not just on a…yeah that it works cinematically.
    Heyman stated that the battle will be around thirty minutes long. He also said that there will be more 'engagement' then happens in the book while discussing the 'final showdown'.
  • In an article from an unknown crew member was the mention of a long list of those to return for the Battle of Hogwarts as well as a little bit about the intensity of the battle:
    Quote:
    Member of the team announced that their production decided to intensify this battle, giving it an atmosphere of profound final war for the Harry Potter saga involving a lot of extras and secondary characters.

    An army of death eaters was created, with approximately 20 to 30 death eater-extras.
  • Two Potter fans were able to visit the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at Leavesden studio and we learned from their report:
    Quote:
    A prop of Aragog is being used as model for bigger larger spiders in DH (presumably for Battle of Hogwarts).
  • Actor Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley) twittered that 43 principal cast members would be on set filming for a 5am wake-up call. It is thought this is for filming scenes during the battle and this is confirmation that they are trying to get as many characters back for the battles as is possible.


  


Actors discuss the Battle:    


  
  • Actor Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) discusses his character and the destruction during the Battle of Hogwarts:
    Quote:
    So what have you learned in terms of acting in Deathly Hallows compared to your character in the previous six films? MATTHEW LEWIS: Ooh, that's a good one. Well, Neville’s really, really come on a lot this year. While Harry, Ron, and Hermione have been out of school, Neville’s assumed Harry’s position of leader of Dumbledore’s Army. It's literally all that training that Neville’s been through throughout the last couple of years. It all leads up to this point. Neville’s taken on a much bigger role this year and it's been so much fun to do. I've had a lot more scenes to do, and tougher scenes as well. Not just physically. Some of the stuff stunt-wise and the physicality of some of the bigger action sequences are tough, but I've enjoyed that, but then also the more subtle stuff.

    ‘Cause at the end of the day, as much fun as all that is, there's also the idea that it is a war going on and people are dying. Neville, though he's very adrenalized - he's just really reckless in this film - he's not immune to the death and destruction around him. A lot of it’s really sad. We're seeing the destruction of these sets, these buildings that have been with us since the beginning. The Great Hall, the courtyards and stuff, and they're all getting wrecked. So it's been quite interesting as an actor to take all that on board. It’s quite good. It's the last film as well because it really helps you when you're acting to think, ‘This is the last one’ and literally its all coming to this one point. But it's been cool.
  • Actor Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) gives his opinion on the intensity of the battle:
    Quote:
    It's unquestionably more exciting, and just far more substantial, as well. It usually takes us about seven months to film; we've been here for sixteen months doing two films. There's a lot more into this, especially with the action and the battle sequences. The final half-hour, or the final hour, really, of the final movie will be non-stop carnage, and I can't wait to see it.
  • In an interview with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Rupert Grint (Ronald Weasley), they discuss filming battles in Deathly Hallows: [video]
    Quote:
    DANIEL RADCLIFFE: I'm in every day, basically. I was lying in a pool of mud and dust and smoke and it irritated my throat and I developed a cold.

    RUPERT GRINT: Yeah, it is very physical, there is a lot of kind of battle scenes and kind of wand action which is always quite fun.
  • Actor Rupert Grint (Ronald Weasley) discussed his general impressions on the battle of Hogwarts.
    Quote:
    What was it like shooting that final battle? RUPERT GRINT: The way we filmed it was confusing, because we filmed both parts simultaneously. So some days we'd be doing a Part One scene, then a huge battle. It was quite hard to keep track of what was going on in Part Two, so I'll be quite interested to see how it's all been put together. But the battle sequences are great, I think. It was just so big and epic; there was one scene in the courtyard where it's one big, continuous shot and they have five cameras picking up everything, and there's giants and fire and big craters. Even for Harry Potter, it felt really huge. These sets, they did actually destroy them. The rubble you see is actually the set falling apart. It's quite weird seeing all these sets that I've grown up in as piles of rubble, there's something strange about that. But it's going to be amazing.
  • Actor Gemma Jones (Madam Poppy Pomfrey) discussed her character getting some battle time in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
    Quote:
    I did have to do a lot of fighting with my wand. At my age and station it was a very good workout. I’m fighting the death eaters with my wand so I had a good time.
  • Actor Robbie Coltrane mentioned a scene with Hagrid fighting in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
    Quote:
    What are you excited about to see the most in the film? ROBBIE COLTRANE: There is a huge massive battle going on, as Hagrid, i got to throw some death eaters off a bridge. It was lovely to do a bit of that. I haven't done that in years. Beating them up. Throwing them over things. It was lovely.
  • Actor Rupert Grint (Ronald Weasley) mentions Hogwarts burning and the Gryffindor common room as a pile of rubble.
    Quote:
    I know we see Hogwarts burning, but was there anything else for you that was heart wrenching from the closing of the Harry Potter saga? RUPERT GRINT: In part two, it’s quite shocking. It’s like a war film. There are bodies everywhere, people dying. All these really familiar sets that I’ve grown up, like the Gryffindor common room, is just piles of rubble. It’s quite meaningful as well, it’s the last film. It’s the end. It made it feel even more final. It’s quite sad.
  • Actor Ciarán Hinds (Aberforth Dumbledore) mentions his character taking part in the battle at Hogwarts:
    Quote:
    Then I had to shoot for two more days, where they had me running around this huge set. It had been ripped apart in a Morlock battle. It was covered with people running around waving a wand in a certain direction. That was the mad part of it that I just had one day on.
  • There were screenshots from interviews of Hermione and Ginny with blood on their faces from battling.

    Quote:

The Ron and Hermione kiss / Chamber of Secrets:    


  

Spoilers from the test screening on the Ron/Hermione kiss:    


  
  • Tweets on the test screening from DylanSpartz that mention the Ron/Hermione kiss.
    Quote:
    And Ron and Hermione's was good. They stopped looked around and mauled each other.
  • In a report from Edward on the test screening.
    Quote:
    Ron/Hermione kiss? Ron actually has the idea that the basilisk fangs might destroy horcruxes so they go down and they take the cup. It is now Hermione's turn to destroy a horcrux so she does that in the actual chamber of secrets. Then this big waterfall, big explosion of water comes up from the chamber and drenches them and then they sort of turn and look at each other and it's like they are going to hug and oh my god they are kissing. And that last for a good number of seconds.
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of the scenes in the Chamber of Secrets with Ron and Hermione.
    Quote:
    How is the destruction of the Cup in the Chamber of Secrets? Pretty cool. Hermione stabs it with the fang and a flood of water washes over Ron and Hermione and then they kiss.

    And the tsunami in the Chamber of Secrets? How? It is gigantic? It’s not too gigantic. Just enough to cause a flash flood.

    Can you list all of the Ron/Hermione romantic or cute scenes you can think of? The kiss. The hand-holding that let Harry know that they’re finally together. They hug a couple times. There weren’t too many. Not a lot of romance in this one.

    Do we get to see Ron and Hermione destroy the Horcrux? Yes.
    If so, does the cup fight back like the locket did? No.
    Does Hermione destroy it? Yes.
    If Hermione does destroy it, does she experience the same kind of taunting that Ron experienced with the locket? No.

    Is the camera angle bad for the kiss? Do they just lean in or do they hold each other? Is it bad like the HBP kiss? Actually, I think the camera angle was really good. Full body, looking up.
    They just grab each other and kiss. Not like the HBP kiss.

    How do Ron and Hermione get out of the Chamber of Secrets? Also, do we see Ron imitating Parselmouth to get into the chamber? Ron opens the door with parseltongue he remembered from when Harry sleep talks.

    Quote:
    DANIEL RADCLIFFE: Rupert, he kissed Emma in that scene in the seventh film, which I imagine was quite odd. Although I was desperate to be on set, but they knew. They so had predicted I would be a nightmare if I was on set and I would be giving Rupert and Emma nothing but grief if I was on set that day that they actually sent me into the forest to film that day. They sent me about thirty miles away from the studio so that I was just going to be no where near the studio.

    EMMA WATSON: Everyone wanted to come and watch it and like Rupert and I were struggling so much with the pressure of it anyway and you know especially if Dan had been there it would have been, it would have been too much I think.
  • Producer David Heyman states that Harry will not be there during the Ron and Hermione kiss and that he is not in the scene:
    Quote:
    Dan Radcliffe said he wasn't present when Rupert and Emma did their kiss scene. Was that deliberate – so he wouldn't distract them?
    DAVID HEYMAN: No.
    Harry's not in the scene?
    DAVID HEYMAN: No.
    So it's not like it is in the book?
    [HEYMAN shakes his head no]
    These reports confirm that Harry is not there when Ron and Hermione kiss when they are in the Chamber of Secrets retrieving the basilisk fangs which they use to destroy one of the horcruxes.
  • Actor Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) discusses the kiss between Ron and Hermione in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:
    Quote:
    RUPERT GRINT: There's a worse one in Number 7, I have to kiss, I say have to, I have to kiss Emma Watson and that was a bit weird that one, but it's...A worse kiss in what way? It was just more embarrassing because we have known each other for so, I've known her since she was nine, and it just felt wrong really, but, yeah, it was fine in the end and I think it's quite sweet.
  • Actor Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) says that during the kiss with Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) she 'ended up pouncing on him'. They both also say similar things in a second interview. They both also talk about the kiss in this interview.
  • Actor Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) mentions that Ron was 'leaning in close to her (Hermione's) face... and we have to look kind of lovingly at each other'.

    Quote:
    What is in store for Draco? There is a bit of redemption. I don't think the crowd will be cheering him on, but he and Harry come to each others aid on more than one occasion.

    Was Draco in it enough to keep you satisfied? It's a tough one, because it was 140 central cast members in this last film, so even if you get half a page of dialogue, consider yourself lucky. But there's a lot more physical stuff for Draco to do with the big, final battle coming up - he has quite a role in that and that was a lot different for me.

Trio outside Room of Requirements
  • There were photos from a sticker book released, of interest is a shot of Ron and Hermione looking at the Marauder's map possibly looking for the snake. They are wet so it has to be after the Chamber of Secrets scene.

Spoilers from the test screening on Fred's death:

  • A test screening report from Rachezee.
    Quote:
    Fred's death was very quick and we don't see it happen. It's possible it's because the effects weren't complete. We see him laid out.


  

  • Actor Oliver Phelps (George Weasley) gave an interview on the twins during the battle.
    Quote:
    What was your last day filming? OLIVER PHELPS: I think it was when we were doing re-shoots, and it was a scene at the battlement sequence. It was an added scene, actually, where James (Phelps, Fred Weasley) and myself were standing on the turrets of the castle, where there was a green screen and everything, and it was just ad-libbed for about a minute. It was quite nice, but it was hard. It was a weird feeling when they yelled, "Wrap!".

    Your characters have always added a rather light touch, but in this film there are some rather heavier sections. OLIVER PHELPS: Well yes, in the final installment there are not a lot of laughs from Fred and George at all. Actually, the re-shoot scene that we did was, I think, the first time you see them scared. it's great to be able to play the same character but show a totally different side, one that the audience haven't seen before, or even something that they hadn't been expecting.
  • A featurette called The Story was released, of interest is a shot of Fred and George on the battlements of Hogwarts waiting for the battle to begin. [video]

Lavender Attacked by Greyback

Spoilers from test screening on Lavender being attacked:    


  
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of battle scenes for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
    Quote:
    And what happens with Lavender when attacked by him? We see Lavender get attacked and die.
  • This is a report from Racheeze on the test screening.
    Quote:
    As for Lavender Brown. Hermione appears to save her but she really did look dead. Her eyes were open and staring. I was surprised by this because. Why include that scene if not to show that Hermione saved the life? But from where I was sitting she looked really quite dead. However she did [not] seem to be significantly mauled by Greyback so perhaps she will join Bill's little grouping of not quite werewolves or maybe it wasn't a full moon and will turn in to one during the next. We don't see her again in the movie so her destiny is unclear.

Snape's Death

Spoilers from the test screening on Snape's death:    


  
  • A test screening report from Rachezee.
    Quote:
    We see Snape's death from the trio's point of view outside the boathouse. Nagini continually attacks him and it's really graphic and violent. Snape's memories come out of a tear. He grabs onto Harry and says, "Look at me. You have your mother's eyes."
  • There was a second report from mugglecast on the test screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, of interest are details on Snape getting killed.
    Quote:
    Snape's death scene? Harry walks in after Voldemort leaves. He sort of kneels next to him. Snape says look at me. You have your mother's eyes.
  • In a report from LeakyCauldron on the test screening is mention of Snape's death in the boathouse.
    Quote:
    In Snape's death, Rickman gives a chilling performance along with Ralph Fiennes, who goes on a Death Eater killing spree as he learns the last bits of his soul are being systematically destroyed. A man who will stop at nothing to live forever, Voldemort slashes at the air in front of Snape, which results in a thin trail of blood to start staining the white collar of his cloak. Nagini then bites Snape multiple times, shaking the glass window onto which Snape has collapsed. We see this from the outside of the Boathouse where the Trio are crouching out of sight.
  • In a report from Edward on the test screening.
    Quote:
    In Snape's death is there the “look at me”? Yes. There is. That was done really well. This was one of the visual effects that was not complete, but during his death it was his tears that Harry or something on his cheek because they had a different title. There was a lot that wasn't finished. And they have title cards where some stuff should be and it said “tears start to fall down Snape's face” and he puts the little flask up to his cheek. It could be tears it could be the memories seeping out somewhere. Snape's death is done really well. It is done in a boathouse, the Hogwarts boathouse at dusk, so there is this glowy, red, orange feel to it that I was really impressed with. Voldemort summons Snape down to question him about the wand and then he sort of takes his wand and slashes across and blood starts to form around Snape's collar.

    He doesn't say “I regret it”? No. So he sort of falls against the glass and then Voldemort says to Nagini “kill”. For each attack, each pounce that the snake does it sort of bangs Snape against the window where outside are Harry, Ron, and Hermione. So we feel and see the snake slamming into Alan Rickman up against the glass.
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of Snape's death in the boathouse.
    Quote:
    How “gory” and “gruesome” is Snape’s death? Do you see a burning Hogwarts in the background of the Boathouse? It’s pretty gruesome. You see Voldemort slit his throat with magic. Then from the other side of the window you hear Nagini attacking him and see blood splattering. I didn’t see a burning Hogwarts because it was all still green screen.

    Does Nagini still kill Severus, and how is it done? Does the snake wrap itself around him and bite him? Is the whole scene shown and does it show the outcome? Is there blood? How exactly is Harry watching this play out, do we see his reaction? How then, does he retrieve Snape’s memories and do their eyes meet? Nagini attacks Severus. She like stabs at him a few times, then leaves. You see the scene happening from the other side of a blurry window. There’s blood splatter. He gets Snape's memory from his tears. Snape tells Harry he has his mother’s eyes.


  



Set Photo: The boathouse where Snape's death takes place:    


    


  • Production designer Stuart Craig commented on Snape's death in an interview with The Telegraph:
    Quote:
    "The last time I cried was a few days ago when we filmed the death of Alan Rickman's character, Snape. It's quite difficult to cry in rushes -- where we watch the previous day's work -- but he is an extraordinary actor and he dies an extremely good death."
  • Art director Andrew Ackland-Snow mentioned the change in the location of Snape's death.
    Quote:
    The art director, Andrew Ackland-Snow, described to us another set created for the film. 'We also made the boat house. We wanted to change a bit where Snape dies. In the book, he dies on the Shrieking Shack, and we wanted to get him out from, not a conventional interior, but from that kind of box, to do it in a more dramatic atmosphere. We asked J.K. if she agreed for that to happen in there, because we hadn't really seen it before. We made a crystal house, and you can see what happens in the boat house from there - Are you listening Harry? -, but also the school is in flames...and she loved it. Besides, it's a very romantic place to die. Snape dies in a extremely good way, I gotta say.'

    You hear Voldemort and let me tell you I've had criticism about Ralp Fiennes' Voldemort in the past being way over the top and I am so glad when we heard this portion of Voldemort's duties in Seven he was just very calm. He was 'Bury your dead with dignity, attend to your wounded, and confront your fate.' It was just very calm and controlled Voldemort.

    It was like a weak Voldemort like he's sort of loosing his confidence.

    No. I thought it was sort of commanding like you know...he's like you've battled well, but I'm the winner here, so let's all just wrap up the game.
  • In a report from Cinema con there is mention of the voice over from Voldemort while the camera pans over the dead.
    Quote:

Voldemort’s voice says: “You have allowed your friends to die for you, rather than face me yourself. Join me in the forbidden forest and confront your fate.”

    Quote:
    We've seen Hogwarts students carrying the bodies of other Hogwarts students. Also the great hall has become a refuge for that. They've basically used the great hall to stack the bodies of people. I think because the great hall is kind of the mediward of this battle.
  • In a report from Edward on the test screening.
    Quote:
    What was the deal with Tonks and Lupin in this film? Is she pregnant? No, Tonks isn't pregnant. We only find out they had the baby when Harry walks into the forest and it's Harry's mother and father and Sirius and Remus appears to him when he has the resurrection stone. That dialogue was directly from the book. Harry does say to him “I didn't want you to die Remus because you are a father now” and that is the first time that we. Before that we see Remus and Tonks on guard somewhere and we see them hold hands as the death eaters come onto the grounds. And the next shot of them is dead on the [floor of the great hall].
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of the bodies in the great hall.
    Quote:
    How much do we see of Sprout and Trelawny? A little bit. You see them gathering bodies, tending to the injured.

    Do we see much of Oliver Wood or Cho Chang? No Oliver Wood. Cho Chang we see in a couple scenes, in the room of requirement and when they're gathering the dead bodies.

    Do we see Lupin and Tonks fight? No. We see them about to fight.

    How is Lupin’s death handled? We don’t see him die. Just the body laying next to Tonks. They’re hands stretched toward each other.

    How is Fred’s death handled? It’s so sad. First we see him get disarmed by a death eater. Later we see the Weasley’s crying over his body. Ron sobs over him. I couldn’t stop crying.

    Does George cry over Fred’s body? George is standing over the body crying.
  • There was a second report from mugglecast on the test screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, of interest are details on Tonks and Lupin's deaths.
    Quote:
    Do you actually see Remus and Tonks getting killed? You do get a shot of Remus and Tonks. You get two. One when they're alive. During the fortification of Hogwarts Lupin and Tonks are up on one of the towers together and right before it all goes down they do look at one another and they sort of outstretch their hands to hold hands during the fighting. And obviously it's a different scene right after Voldemort grants the pardon, the hour to collect the dead / meet me in the forest or else, that's when Harry goes to the great hall and sees not only that Fred is dead which happens off screen but that Remus and Tonks are dead. They are laying on like body bags, body carriers, that sort of thing but their hands are kind of outstretch and touching as well. So it is that same sentiment that Remus and Tonks are dead but Harry can't bear that all these people died for him. You get the point that it bothers Harry that these people died for him.
  • In a report from Edward on the test screening.
    Quote:
    How did the death of Fred come about? So when Harry goes back into the great hall. He sort of turns the corner and sees the weeping Weasley family and him lying there and Ron comes up and start crying. He is just distraught, broken and sobbing.

  • Actors James Phelps (Fred Weasley) and Oliver Phelps (George Weasley) discuss the scene where the family cries over Fred's body in the great hall.
    Quote:
    James, your character Fred dies in the books – how was it filming that? In the book it was relatively ‘off-camera’ and it was only at the end of the battle that it hit the readers and characters. Is it similar in the film?

    JAMES PHELPS: We’re not sure yet. They’re working on a way that brings it in without making it the end of the battle. When we shot it, I was just lying there and I could hear what was going on. That’s when you see how good the actors we work with are – Oliver was bloody good.

    OLIVER PHELPS: With Julie Waters and Rupert Grint there too, it really made me realize how great actors they are. The second time we did it, we just let rip, and on camera it looks great. It was pretty strange to be doing that. I know I never want a Eucalyptus torch (a prop they blow into your eye to make you cry) again – I could barely see afterwords.
  • Producer David Heyman discusses the Ron crying during the truce in the Great Hall.
    Quote:
    "It's the final battle," explains producer David Heyman. "Voldemort has called a truce to give the school the opportunity to turn Harry over to him. Harry, Ron, and Hermione come back into the great hall and witness lots of dead bodies. It's a very sobering moment."

    Rupert Grint's Ron Weasley stands in the middle of the destruction and breaks down in tears as he discovers his friends have been killed in the latest skirmish. Emma Watson's Hermione consoles him as Hogwarts' staff hurry around them tending to the endless wounded. Harry stands there bloodied and agonized.
  • Actor Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) mentions Ron crying in the scene in the great hall.
    Quote:
    Over the course of this decade, have you been surprised at all by the increased acting depth that your coworkers have achieved as well as maybe your own? EMMA WATSON: Oh, all the time, particularly in Part 2, there's a scene where Rupert's brother dies and the amazing thing about Rupert is that he's a very self-contained human being. It's very rare that you see him get emotional. The minute the camera rolls, he just becomes this other thing and he has so much, and I'm like, "Where does that come from?" Anyway, there's a scene where he cries and I remember having to remind myself to keep acting because I just wanted to go, "You're amazing! That was amazing!" I don't know where he pulled it from.

The Prince's Tale

Spoilers from the test screening on the Prince's Tale:    


  
  • There was a second report from mugglecast on the test screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, of interest are details that there is not an explanation as to how Snape knows where to find Harry and Hermione in the forest of dean.
    Quote:
    How do they get around Phineas Nigellus' painting being the way in which Snape finds Harry and Hermione in the forest of Dean in Part 1?
    In the Prince's Tale we see a shot of the doe being sent so we know it's Snape but as to how he is able to find the trio that is not shown.

    Is the line “After all this time Severus?” “Always” in there? Yeah.
  • This is a report from Racheeze on the test screening.
    Quote:
    There is a butterfly scene with Lily and Snape though the butterflies had not been added yet because they are CGI. There was a caption telling us what we would be seeing.
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of Snape's death in the boathouse.
    Quote:
    Is the scene with Lily’s swingset (Prince’s Tale scene) in the movie? No. But you see them playing and turning leaves into butterflies.

    How does young Snape look? Greasy and lanky and tall, or did he turn out kind of cute? Also, can you go into a bit more detail about the scene where Snape finds Lily in the house? And tell us more about the scene when they’re at the boathouse? What are they talking about? And was there any kind of romantic air to the scene(s)? He looked cute. Not greasy or anything. He finds Lily in the house and holds her body, crying out. It’s heartbreaking. They’re just talking about magic, not too much dialogue. It was cute.

    Does Severus say “Always”? He does say “Always” in the memory.
  • In a report from mugglenet on the test screening. audio
    Quote:
    The Prince's Tale. Dumbledore and Snape discussing Harry being a horcrux. Snape's love for Lilly. Trying to get Voldemort to protect Lilly. All of that is in this tale. My favorite scenes in the tale were Snape vulnerable particularly with Dumbledore. You see Snape looking so desperate and upset about the situation with Harry and Lilly and it really brings out this side of the character that you've never seen before.

    There is a line in there that Snape says to Dumbledore straight out “you're raising him like a pig to slaughter”.
  • In a report from Edward on the test screening.
    Quote:
    I was able to talk a bit to David Heyman after and he said that during the Prince's Tale sequence they are going to tweak some things and probably put in a shot of Draco with the wand and explaining that transfer better there. They make use of the flashbacks and memories and what happens in the past.
  • In a report from LeakyCauldron on the test screening is mention of Snape's memories
    Quote:
    The Prince's Tale: Harry views Snape's memories in Dumbledore's office, and this sequence was nothing short of spectacular. We see Snape and Lily meeting as children, their sorting at Hogwarts, Snape and Dumbledore's fateful conversations about Harry, and--most hearbreakingly---Snape discovering Lily and James' bodies at Godric's Hollow. Alan Rickman gives his best performance yet in the series, and possibly the best in the film.

    In a change from the book, a number of shots were added to the memory scene showing Snape at Godric's Hollow, discovering the dead bodies of Lily and James. Snape falls to the floor upon seeing Lily's body, and then cradles her in his arms, sobbing, as the year-old Harry Potter looks on from his crib. Rickman's scenes with Michael Gambon (Dumbledore) also hit the mark, showing the backstory of Dumbledore's search for the horcruxes and Snape's love for Lily. Young Snape, Lily, and Petunia have been cast perfectly as well... even young James Potter seems to have been captured the way Snape's character remembers him from the book.

    As mentioned above, the Prince's Tale memory is the emotional high point for the entire film series. It flows beautifully among the battle going on around Harry, and allows for a quick breath and dose of reality for Harry. Lasting for about six minutes, the sequence was set to the temporary score of "Dumbledore's Farewell" from "Half-Blood Prince" which worked beautifully in this edit, even though it is sure to be changed for theatrical release. From Young Snape meeting Lily under an old and decaying monument of a tree and their relationship before and during school to James' bulling of Snape and his pain upon discovering their deaths, the entirety of his history is depicted in these scenes.
  • A test screening report from Rachezee.
    Quote:
    Two scenes of Lily and Snape as kids pre-Hogwarts. First scene is in a field and includes Petunia and she calls Lily a freak. Snape throws Lily a flower with magic or something to that effect. Second scene is Snape and Lily lying under a tree with butterflies around or some unfinished effect like it.

    The do show them being sorted into two different houses, but that might be incorporated later in the sequence. It seems to have a lot of flashbacks intertwined within it, some new flashbacks and some from the previous films.

    They show James being obnoxious to Snape at Hogwarts while Lily is watching. Then Lily and James as older teens dancing. I guess Snape must be watching them, but I don’t know for sure.

    There is no version of Snape’s Worst Memory or anything like it. Snape never calls Lily a mudblood. They never break off their friendship. The people from the screening seemed to think that it might come across as if they weren’t that close while at Hogwarts and that Snape loved her from afar. I think this may be open to interpretation. I guess we’ll see what it is like in its final form.

    Then Lily talking to baby Harry and saying that he is very loved. Not sure how Snape knows this or whatever. It is unclear if he was spying on them. No one seems to remember for sure.

    There is a bit of Trelawny and the prophecy. Then he asks Dumbledore to protect Lily.

    Then there is a montage of Snape sort of crying to Dumbledore that they are dead while he is shown going up the steps to the house, sees James dead in the hallway, finds Lily dead, cradles her body and sobs while baby Harry is watching. Dumbledore says the line about the Potters putting their faith in the wrong person just like he did.

    They show Harry being sorted in a flashback and Snape saying he is just like his father.

    Dumbledore tells Snape Harry has to die, and asks Snape if he has come to care for Harry. They explain about Voldemort’s soul piece being in Harry.

    They show Snape trying to heal Dumbledore’s cursed hand. They have Dumbledore ask Snape to kill him and inter cut it with HBP.

    They also have Snape say that he doesn’t want anyone to know that he loved Lily, at some point.

    They have Snape cast the doe and the “always” line is probably in. I wasn’t totally clear on that last part. They show the doe go to the forest and they flashback to the silver doe scene.
  • A test screening report from Rachezee.
    Quote:
    PRINCE'S TALE: All done in quick flashes, not too long but not too short either. We see two scenes of Snape and Lily as children. The playground scene is in there but it's in a field, not a playground. Petunia is there too and she calls them "freaks!". Then there's a scene under the tree where they talk. No mention of Snape's parents fighting. We see Lily and Snape sorted at Hogwarts, scenes of teen Snape and Lily at Hogwarts and James being a bad boy in Hogwarts as Snape and Lily watch on but no Snape's worst memory and no "mudblood" and no break-up. Snape and Lily aren't really portrayed as close-friends. Snape admires her from afar but never gets that close to her. We see James and Lily dancing.

    We do hear a bit of Trelawny making the prophecy but it's very jumbled. We cut to Snape pleading with Dumbledore to save Lily. Gambon is intense in this scene as Dumbledore was in the book. They show a shot of Wormtail as Dumbledore says the Potters put their trust in the wrong person just like Snape did. We see Snape at Godric's Hollow after the big event and he cradles Lily's corpse as baby Harry cries. Then we see Snape crying in Dumbledore's office weeping about Lily being dead and the scene is inter-cut with a scene where we see Lily cuddling baby Harry and telling him he is loved and to be brave. We have scenes from PS/SS of Snape watching Harry get sortied as well as other scenes lifted right from SS. He tells Dumbledore how much like his father he is.

    The ring and Dumbledore's cursed hand is explained and why Snape has to kill Dumbledore is cleared up. A lot of emphasis on Snape not wanting anyone to know he loved Lily. They briefly discuss Harry having a piece of Tom's soul and how he has to die. Most of the lines are lifted from the book. Snape's patronus and "Always" is in the film. They explain the Silver Doe scene in DH1 and even show flashback to DH1 from Snape's point of view. Overall, huge exposition dump in this whole sequence about a variety of things.


  


  • During an interview in Dumbledore's office at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Dan Radcliffe spoke about the pensieve scene in which Harry looks at Snape's memories.
    Quote:
    DANIEL RADCLIFFE: I think one of the key scenes in the series happens in this room, which is, towards the end of the Seventh film where Harry learns something about Snape's past in relation to him. That takes place in this room in fact actually it takes place pretty much here.
    INTERVIEWER: Am I Snape or am I you?
    DANIEL RADCLIFFE: No, Snape's not here because there's just a pensieve and I am going into it like that and that is kind of pretty much, possibly the key scene in the series, you might say there is a certain...you could put an argument forward for that, so that's going to be a pretty amazing, I hope if I've done my job, it should be a pretty good scene.

Snape's Childhood Memories
  • Rohan Gotobed has been cast as the child Sirius Black. He will be featured in the scene where Sirius, James, Lily, and Severus meet for the first time aboard the Hogwarts Express on the way to their first year at Hogwarts.

  • Production designer Stuart Craig talks about having to rebuild the set at Godric's hollow for Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) to do some filming there. This suggests that Snape will be in some scene at Godric's hollow possible for the Potter's death scene.
    Quote:
    Specifically, for Deathly Hallows, they had to go back and get a closer look at Godric’s Hollow in order to determine the state of the Potter house. They built it for the first film, and then again for the seventh, and had to rebuild a bit again as they had to do some filming with Alan Rickman. They try to keep the continuity.
  • A report by TheLeakyCauldron on the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows mentions that Snape will be at Godric's Hollow at some point during the film. Snape will be present at some point after the moment when James and Lilly Potter are killed by Voldemort. This scene will be shown during the Prince's Tale where Harry looks into Snape's memories.
    Quote:
    We do look through the books all the time. And very recently looked at Godric's Hollow again and looked at what the book had to say, looked at what Jo Rowling had to say about the state of the Potter house in Godric's Hollow. We'd built it for the first film, we built it once again for the seventh film, then had to rebuild a bit-- to do with Alan Rickman's availability and so on-- there was a continuity issue there and we refer to the book. But, it is typical; we do it all the time. It is so specific and precise. Everything is grounded in the book, I think. I know the scale is sometimes increased enormously; there are lots and lots of omissions because there have to be. You're making a movie out of a novel, certainly, a very long novel. But, nonetheless, I think everything is grounded in the book in the spirit of it, at least, if not in the letter of it and the reference is constant.
  • A featurette was released of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows during the ABC Family weekend, of interest are shots of Snape outside the Potter's house on the day they died. Notice the gaping hole in the roof of the house. [video]

  • There were shots during Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 of James and Lilly Potter dead during the scenes where Harry and Hermione are standing outside the Potter's house. There is speculation that they may show more of their death scene at some point during Part 2. The most likely place would be during the Prince's Tale.

  • Actor Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) discussed doing a voice over for Deathly Hallows Part 2 most likely during the Prince's Tale. It has been thought that he could be talking about doing a voice over during the scene where the trio are sorted and Harry is first in the presence of Voldemort on the back of Quirrell's head and his scar hurts.
    Quote:
    I just returned from the dubbing studio where I spoke into a microphone as Severus Snape for absolutely the last time. On the screen were some flashback shots of Daniel, Emma, and Rupert from ten years ago. They were 12.

Harry says Goodbye to Ron and Hermione

Spoilers from the test screening on saying goodbye to Ron and Hermione:    


  
  • There was a second report from mugglecast on the test screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, of interest are details on Harry telling everyone to kill the snake.
    Quote:
    Is Harry meeting Neville and telling him to kill the snake in the movie? Yeah. In fact I think Harry tells everyone to kill the snake. He's recruiting people to go kill the snake because he has to go into the forest. He reiterates several times that that snake needs to die.
  • In a report from mugglenet on the test screening. audio
    Quote:
    After the Prince's Tale when Harry realizes what must be done. You have time for that. You see Harry kind of walking in a trance and he sits down on the steps in Dumbledore's office and he comes to the realization of what he has to do. It was well done because he had that time to think about it. You don't hear anything. It is just him thinking about having to sacrifice himself. About having to die. When he says goodbye to Ron and Hermione and it's finally goodbye. It felt real. It takes place on the steps when Harry actually says goodbye to Ron and Hermione and because the steps were in such disarray. There were all these shattered bricks and fragments of the steps and the halls of Hogwarts there.
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of Harry saying goodbye to Ron and Hermione before he enters the forest.
    Quote:
    You mentioned that Harry and Hermione hug (and Ron doesn’t). When Harry tells them he’s going to Voldemort? Does he go up to them and tell them he is planning on dying because that’s not what happened in the book. Do Ron and Hermione accept this and are they okay with their best friend going off to face his death with Voldemort? Does he use this time to explain to the audience that the horcrux is in him and what he must do? Yeah, he tells them that he’s the final horcrux. Hermione says that she had a feeling that was it. They just have an understanding that they only way to destroy Voldemort is for Harry to die.

    Also does Hermione comfort Ron at all, on the stairs? How do Hermione and Ron say goodbye and let Harry go to his death? Yeah, she’s comforting him on the stairs. They were both worried that Harry had already left to go to Voldemort. Hermione hugs Harry, and Ron says bye, I think. No hug, which I thought was weird.
  • There was a second report from mugglecast on the test screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, of interest are details on Harry saying goodbye to Ron and Hermione.
    Quote:
    You said that Harry told Ron and Hermione goodbye and that he had to die. Did he specifically say he had to die or just that he was going after Voldemort? He says to Hermione “I think I know what is going on and I think you've known it too”. “That you've known I'm a horcrux”. I think he even flat out says he's a horcrux because Ron needs to understand it. He says “I think I've been knowing what was going on. You've known it for awhile too.” Hermione has like a tearful admission that...she starts to break down. It is very clear that they know that Harry is going out there to die which is sort of what makes it emotional. So yeah he isn't just going after Voldemort. He is actually going into the forest to die.

Forest Walk

Spoilers from the test screening on Harry and the forest walk:    


  
  • In a report from LeakyCauldron on the test screening is mention of Harry's walk into the forest.
    Quote:
    The source material is used nearly verbatim in the forest scenes. Harry walks into the forest, after passing off the duty to kill Nagini to Ron and Hermione, and discovers the resurrection stone in the snitch. His parents, Remus, and Sirius continue with him until he faces Voldemort. A white flash brings us to King's Cross with a fully clothed Harry, Dumbledore, and the red, slimy, breathing thing that is a piece of Voldemort's soul.
  • A test screening report from Rachezee.
    Quote:
    Resurrection Stone scene and Harry's walk to his death was very emotional. Harry asks Sirius if it hurts to die, as in the book.
  • In a report from Edward on the test screening.
    Quote:
    What was the deal with Tonks and Lupin in this film? Is she pregnant? No, Tonks isn't pregnant. We only find out they had the baby when Harry walks into the forest and it's Harry's mother and father and Sirius and Remus appears to him when he has the resurrection stone. That dialogue was directly from the book. Harry does say to him “I didn't want you to die Remus because you are a father now” and that is the first time that we. Before that we see Remus and Tonks on guard somewhere and we see them hold hands as the death eaters come onto the grounds. And the next shot of them is dead on the [floor of the great hall].
  • A test screening report from Rachezee on the forest walk.
    Quote:
    Harry figures out the "I open at the close" riddle by taking it out, kissing it, reading it, and saying, "I am ready to die" and it opens. The stone floats in midair and he catches it with his other hand but the stone was not in the test-screening. It will be added with CGI later.

    He tries to touch his ghost mother but his hand goes through her.

    At the end of their conversation Harry asks them if anyone else would be able to see them and they say no. It cuts immediately from this to the shot from the trailer of Harry walking to Voldemort. We are seeing it from Voldemort's point of view now and assume the ghosts are still with Harry even though we do not see them.


  


  • Actor Geraldine Sommerville is confirmed for this last Harry Potter film, so she will appear to Harry in the Forbidden Forest together with Adrian Rawlish, Gary Oldman, and David Thewlis as Harry walks to his death.
  • In an interview actor Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) states that 'the final walk into the forest is what I'm kind of dreading, because I don't know still how I'm going to do that'. This confirms the scene where Harry walks to his death at the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. [source]

  • In a report from Cinema con there is mention of the forest walk with the resurrection stone where Harry's four guardians come to walk him to his death.
    Quote:
    In the forest, Harry finds the images of those Voldemort meant, the people who have given their lives for him: His mother, father, godfather Sirius Black…
    “Why are you here, all of you?” he demands.
    “We never left,” his mother whispers.
    “You’ll stay with me?” Harry’s voice is high and fearful, while the ghosts are soothing and calm.
    “Always,” his mother says.
    “Until the end,” adds his father, which is as ominous as it is reassuring.
  • The first theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest is a shot of Harry reaching for what looks like his mother's hand. This is most likely when they are walking to Voldemort in the forest and his hand passes through hers. [video]

Forest Confrontation
  • In a report by latinreview from the ShoWest Convention is a mention of the confrontation between Harry and Voldemort in the forest: [source]
    Quote:
    Next they showed a ton of Harry Potter footage with the opening scene being the one that actually happens near the end of the book when Harry confronts Voldemort in the woods. Ralph Fiennes did not have the full CGI Voldemort look and had blue dots on his face for the CGI to be added later. But he didn't really need the makeup because he came across just as creepy without it. Harry went up to confront him and Voldemort flicked his wand at him before cutting to another scene.
  • In a report by Cinemablend from the ShoWest Convention is a mention of the forest confrontation between Harry and Voldemort: [source]
    Quote:
    Much of the effects work was unfinished and a major character -- Ralph Fiennes' noseless Voldemort -- had dots on his face marking the future digital alteration that really makes him who he is. But they weren't just bold in what they showed us, but how they did it -- the first scene of the extended trailer was Harry and Voldemort's confrontation in the woods outside Hogwarts, bloodied and visibly terrified, [Harry] approaches a cold Voldemort (flanked by Bellatix Lestrange). Voldemort taunts Harry, 'The boy who lived...come to die'.
  • In a report by collider from the ShoWest Convention is also a mention of the confrontation between Harry and Voldemort: [source]
    Quote:
    The footage started with Voldemort walking in the forest with all his followers around him. He was looking for Harry. While I assumed the footage was going to be just from the first Harry Potter movie coming this November, I think the opening was from Part 2 and it was from the big climatic battle between Harry and Voldemort! I couldn't believe what I was seeing. So we see Harry coming towards Voldemort partly beat up and with a look of nervousness. It was then we cut away...
  • A teaser of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was shown at the MTV awards Of interest is shots of Voldemort in the forest. Notice a death eater to the right entering the clearing who says 'No sign of him, my lord'. Voldemort also has dialogue saying 'The boy who lived...come to die' which is thought to be from this scene. [video]

  • The First Official Teaser Trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released with footage from both parts. Of interest is some shots of Voldemort facing away from Harry as he enters the forest clearing. There is similar dialogue as there was in the MTV Teaser with a death eater saying 'No sign of him, my lord' as the death eater enters the clearing. Voldemort then turns to face Harry and says 'Harry Potter...the boy who lived...come to die...AVADA KEDAVRA!' Voldemort using the elder wand then shoots the killing spell at Harry who closes his eyes. Notice Bellatrix pointing her wand at Harry and while Harry is carrying his wand when he enters the clearing he is not holding it when Voldemort uses the killing spell. [video]

Chapter 35: King’s Cross:    


  

Spoilers from the test screening on King's Cross:    


  
  • In a report from Edward on the test screening.
    Quote:
    Is there any mention of the elder wand at all? That's told through the flashbacks and through the King's Cross part with Dumbledore and Harry. The deathly hallows stuff was not mentioned at all to any real effect.
  • This is a report from Racheeze on the test screening.
    Quote:
    Anyway Harry is not naked at Kings Cross, he is wearing a t-shirt, jeans, and shoes.
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of Dumbledore in limbo with Harry.
    Quote:
    How is King’s Cross? Very white and bright. Clean. Very ethereal looking. The bloody ugly baby is gross.

    Is the “Of course this is happening inside your head Harry, but why on Earth should that mean it’s not real?” line included? Yes.

    Are either of these Dumbledore lines in the movie from King’s Cross: “Of course it is in your head, Harry, but why on Earth should that mean that it isn’t real?” and “Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and above all, pity those who live without love.” Yes, both are in it.

    Is Harry naked at first during the king’s cross scene with Dumbledore? Does he sort of wake up on the ground and do we see it from his point of view, then everything comes into place as white and shiny or however it looks? He’s fully clothed. We see it at first from his point of view and then we seem him walking along the platform. It’s all very white and bright the entire time.
  • In a report from mugglenet on the test screening. audio
    Quote:
    Particularly I enjoyed King's Cross. A very bright scene. Just Harry and Dumbledore and the shriveled up Voldemort baby thing under the bench. Harry was not naked like he was in the book. King's Cross where Harry keeps asking Dumbledore questions. It is kind of humorous but it also gives Gambon something to be, he is able to be wise in answering the questions. The way the scene is written suits Gambon's strong points as Dumbledore where he can be guiding and also supportive. The baby thing that is breathing in and out the whole time the scene is going on. You can hear this raspy breathing and it is ominous and really kind of deranged. And the other thing about King's Cross it is this afterlife sequence and for viewers of the film who have seen Seven films set in the real world. The films made the wizarding world a real deal and now to see this brightly lit King's Cross afterlife. It was really interesting to see. It was one thing to see ghosts in the forest in the resurrection stone scene but to see the flip side of that with Harry in the ghost world I really liked that about King's Cross.

    The great lines in the book are there in the film. The one that stood out to me was Harry saying “Is this all in my head or is this real?” and Dumbledore says “Of course this is in your head, but why on earth would that mean it's not real?” That is the last bit of dialogue in that scene.


  


  • Actor Michael Gambon (Albus Dumbledore) confirms that he will return in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
  • Director David Yates confirmed in an interview that Daniel Radcliffe will be nude in two scenes in Deathly Hallows one being the scene in King's Cross station. Harry was not naked in the test screening suggesting this may have been cut after filming.
    Quote:
    Well, Dan (Radcliffe) has appeared nude in the past, but there are a couple of scenes in the new film in which he will undress, but we're still thinking about how we present it.

    There is another scene in Kings Cross station, where Harry almost dies and sees Dumbledore. In that scene he will also be naked.
  • Production designer Stuart Craig discussed the look of the platform when Harry is "dead".
    Quote:
    I was just going to ask you about that King's Cross station scene at the end of the 2nd movie did you have to think about that for a while? Sometimes when you're working on a scene do you have to sit on it for a while -- I mean do you just wait for all the research to come in and sort of spread it all out and just contemplate it for a few days? STUART CRAIG: Absolutely that. I think flashes of inspiration are for me very hard to come by. I often sit in front of a blank sheet of paper and struggle and struggle and use the eraser a lot, but eventually something will form and something like that which is a difficult concept. You're talking about with Harry between life and death?

    Yes. Yes. there's not a lot of direction about how the scene is so that's why I chose that one to ask you about. It seems like you had to fill in a lot. STUART CRAIG: We experimented a lot quite honestly. I mean it was quite a protracted process really but we did experiment the sense of it being very burnt out very very kind of white -- so we experimented with under lit floors, we experimented with different kind of white covering everything: white paint, white fabric, and the cameraman was involved in how much to expose it, and a series of camera tests were done, so we got there but with a great deal of preparation and research.

    Well, given that the end result was a very simple set, a very white platform surrounded with white walls and there'll be some visually enhancing effects put in, but there was a sketch that Andrew (Williamson) and I prepared that became a kind of template -- and then we did all that experimenting. Difficult to say how long -- experimented over two or three weeks I'd say.
  • In a report from Cinema con there is mention of Harry in limbo talking to Dumbledore.
    Quote:
    Rowling’s vision of the afterlife is a white void, and Harry finds himself facing his mentor, the late headmaster Albus Dumbledore, slain by Severus Snape, who says, “You brave, brave ma. You are the true master of death, Harry”, Dumbledore tells him, and Potter finds that because he died willingly, he will be able to go back.
  • There were photos from a sticker book released, of interest is a shot of Harry and Dumbledore walking. The shot has to be from King's Cross because that is the only scene Dumbledore is in.
Photo of Harry and Dumbledore:    


    


  • The fifth tv spot was released, of interest is some dialogue where Harry says "I have to go back haven't I?" He is most likely speaking to Dumbledore during the King's Cross scene. [video]
  • The eighth tv spot was released, of interest is some dialogue where Dumbledore says "Do not pity the dead, Harry, pity the living. And above all those who live without love." [video]

Re: The All-Inclusive DH Part 2 List

Chapter: 36 29/June/11 update ch. 36

Chapter 36: The Flaw in the Plan:    


  
  • There are spoilers from the test screening in Harry Alive and the Showdown.
Harry Alive

Spoilers from the test screening on Harry alive in the clearing:    


  
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of Narcissa checking to see if Harry is alive.
    Quote:
    Does Narcissa check to see if Harry is alive? Yes. But she doesn’t whisper to him, like in the book.
  • This is a report from Racheeze on the test screening.
    Quote:
    It can be assumed she knows as she checks his heart (and pulse in his neck I think) but she gives no hint of the fact she knows. It could just as likely be that some magic prevented her from being able to detect his heart beat, but that is reaching. She actually had plenty of space to secretly whisper to Harry and rather a small production is made over that scene but the film makers apparently thought that her asking Harry anything was not necessary to include.


  


  • A featurette was released of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows during the ABC Family weekend, of interest is a shot of Harry opening his eye. [video]

  • There were photos released, of interest is one of Voldemort and many death eaters in the forest. Notice what looks like Hagrid tied up behind some death eaters in the right of the photo. It is thought that this photo is after Harry has been "killed" and Voldemort is worried that he may still be alive.

The Showdown

Spoilers for the test screening on the Final Confrontation:    


  
  • There was a second report from mugglecast on the test screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, of interest are details on the speeches in the courtyard right before the final confrontation.
    Quote:
    One of my favorite moments in the book was when the death eaters bring out Harry's supposedly dead body in front of the school and everyone and that moment when McGonagall screams is one of the most moving scenes. Is it in the film?

    Yes, but I don't think McGonagall screams. I think this is one of the best scenes in movie eight. It's the victory speech. Not only the victory speech but the opposition from Neville. Neville's speech takes place here too. Basically they've just come from the forest. Voldemort and everybody enters the courtyard of Hogwarts. Hagrid is carrying Harry's lifeless body. And Voldemort gives sort of a victory speech about “Now it's all over and you should join me”. Like "Now there is nothing else. You've lost your hero." He says something like “All wizards are welcome. All pure bloods wizards are welcome”.

    And there is one weird point here where he asks Draco to come over. Draco's parents do. He gives them the ultimatum join me, like walk over to this part of the courtyard basically like they do in Hook with the lost boys. The thing of it is nobody moves at first. Narcissa and Lucius call for Draco to come and Draco kind of looks unsure but then he walks across. And Voldemort kind of hugs him. That was the weird part. Voldemort kind of pulls him in and says “Well done Draco”. Voldemort is pointing his wand at Draco. It's kind of eerie. It was creepy seeing Voldemort touch someone. When I saw this in the film I just said he was happy because he thought he's won and that he is almost more human now. He's hugging people.

    Well he's doing that to show people that he is not without compassion like you can come I will not do anything if you walk over. It is all one big show just to get people to come over.

    You are absolutely right. So then Neville walks forward and people are like gasp Neville is going to join Voldemort. But then Neville is like “I just want”...yeah it's wonderful and Voldemort taunts Neville beforehand. It's amazing.

    The Malfoys run away like cowards in the end (during the last part of the battle).
  • A test screening report from Rachezee.
    Quote:
    Molly and Bellatrix fight. It starts off comical but gets really tense. It is clear Molly kills her. Bellatrix gets a big villain's death. "Not my daughter you, *****" is in the movie.

    In the final duel, Harry and Voldemort fight all over the place, they tumble off a cliff and apparate in mid-air and kinda merge into one at one point. Harry flies around like smoke as well, all around Hogwarts. They are alone for most of the duel and there's very little dialogue between them. Very action-oriented. Spells are all cast silently including the final ones that kill Voldemort. Harry does catch the Elder Wand as in the book. A ton of it was unfinished.
  • In a report from mugglenet on the test screening. audio
    Quote:
    At one point Harry and Voldemort run into each other and Harry pulls him off a cliff and they start basically flying around in the air and at one point their faces merge. And the special effects weren't complete on that yet but that was definitely what was going on and it was weird and kind of hard to follow. They spend a lot of time there really close to each other.

    Harry grabs Voldemort and says “let's finish this like we started...together” and pulls him off the cliff and obviously Voldemort wants to not die so he starts flying and Harry's grabbing onto him and they are both like wrestling in the air. It is a great way to show Hogwarts from above. But when their faces merge it was completely not a finished effect but you could tell that was the idea.

    This is the first movie we see him [Voldemort]. We see how he thinks. How he commands his army. The victory speech when he believes Harry is dead is such insight into Ray Fiennes playing Voldemort that it's amazing.

    A lot of it is a chase. They are shooting spells at each other the whole time in the chase through Hogwarts. In the film it is more cat and mouse chasing.

    The Harry/Voldemort final duel. They are not dueling in the great hall. The students are not around. A lot of students have died. We've seen Hogwarts students carrying the bodies of other Hogwarts students. Also the great hall has become a refuge for that. They've basically used the great hall to stack the bodies of people. I think because the great hall is kind of the mediward of this battle.

    That said Bellatrix and Molly do confront each other in the great hall. That scene isn't like the audio books. It isn't all caps. Mrs. Weasley is more firm about it then crazy.

    Voldemort and Harry's final moments. He does call him Tom but it is earlier on when they are sort of face to face, up close to him without killing him. They are very interesting adversaries to see them dealing with each other.

    Even the stairway. The scenes with the snake on the stairway.
  • In a report from Edward on the test screening.
    Quote:
    Was there anything that struck you as "wow that wasn't in the book"? There is one moment where Harry grabs Voldemort and they go careening off a cliff down. In the moment I thought it was really good that it shows them sort of turns into inky Voldemort, Voldemort black swirls and stuff, and then in a rather odd moment they sort of fight face to face and their faces combine. But that was one thing that wasn't fully finished in the film. That was CGI these weird kind of gray characters.

    So Molly, “Not my daughter you *****?” That was fantastic. They are standing on like bleachers. Interesting enough one of the title cards for special effects to be added said that Bellatrix sort of dissolves into the air when she's killed. In Voldemort's death it also says he sort of comes apart. As I said those two effects weren't completely finished but if the title cards are to be believed then they sort of dissolve.

    So the final confrontation? Just Harry and Voldemort or is everyone around them? It is just Harry and Voldemort. Voldemort sort of chases Harry around the castle. Hagird who has one line in the film brings Harry to the courtyard where Neville is there with the sorting hat. They all come out and Harry sort of leaps from life and starts ducking and dogging away as Voldemort tries to kill him again and they go on this little chase. Go through the chase to the castle, the bridge, and the towers and ends up at that cliff over by the gaping whole in the tower of Hogwarts. And Harry has a line. “We should end this how we began...together.” And then sort of latches onto him and tumbles off.

    There really isn't any dialogue for that scene except what we saw in that one trailer a couple of months ago. The “why do you live?” “I have something worth living for.”

    Harry doesn't talk to him at all at the end? No. They fall off the cliff and sort of tumble down. And Harry does call him Tom at one point. They tumble off and they do the sort of ink swooping around the castle. And in the courtyard. They are both on the ground and their wands are between them. They scramble to their wands.

    Neville killing Nagini and Harry killing Voldemort happen almost simultaneously. Neville slashes, you know, cuts Nagini in half and Voldemort sees that and the green part of the wand takes over the red and Voldemort dies. Nagini dies at the last second.

    Neville kills Nagini at the same time as Voldemort? Yeah.

    So Harry doesn't know that Voldemort's last horcrux is dead and he is running around trying to kill Voldemort? I don't think he knows. The killing of Nagini happens basically in front of them.

    So how long after the killing of Nagini does the final confrontation with Voldemort and Harry? That's going on when Nagini is killed. It happens also in the courtyard. So they see it happen. They have a lot of wand fighting. They have a lot of spell casting.

    Harry's explanation to Ron and Hermione about the wand and that Draco was the master and he took it from Draco doesn't happen until after. That doesn't happen until after the battle and they are standing on the now destructed bridge and the trio has the conversation about that.
  • This is a report from Racheeze on the test screening.
    Quote:
    As for what happens after Voldemort is killed. Please keep in mind I really thought the movie was really well done. But the only part that was not in my opinion was the final battle between Harry and Voldemort. Not one person witnesses Voldemort being killed. So no one is immediately there to say or do anything to Harry. That was rather unsatisfying to me. The whole fight with Voldemort seemed silly, pointless, and again unsatisfying, unlike in the book. Carrying the fight all over the school, not letting the people witness not just his death, but letting them hear Harry defeat him also with words seamed a big mistake on the part of the film makers. In the movie it was just, all of the sudden, over. And according to the captions Voldemort is going to disintegrate so Harry won't even have a body to prove his defeat.

    But it does cut to a scene in the Great Hall where people are celebrating. I don't recall if Hermione and Ron hug him, but he does walk up to them and they walk off together, to a bridge with a huge abyss over the edge. Harry explains how he became master of the elder wand, then destroys it, without ever having repaired his own wand. Harry is currently wandless (other than Draco's wand) though the movie makes no mention of that at all.

    There is also no further talk about the fact that Harry's cloak is one of the deathly hallows or that his ancestor is one of the Peveral brothers. Any information about the cloak being a hallow was relayed in DH1 and no more is offered.
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of the final confrontation duels.
    Quote:
    What happens to the Malfoys (specifically Lucius)? They flee once Harry comes back alive. You see them running away on the bridge that leads to Hogsmeade.

    Does Neville say “I’ll join you when hell freezes over!”? I don’t think so… But he has an EPIC monologue when he talks to Voldemort!

    How big is Hagrid’s part? You just see him when Voldemort has him tied up when he “kills” Harry. Then when Hagrid carries Harry. Harry hugs Hagrid after the entire battle.

    Does Hagrid do any fighting, or is he sort of “just there” (apart from carrying Harry)? No fighting.

    Is the conversation between Harry & Voldemort before Harry kills Voldemort in the movie (i.e. when Harry tells Voldemort that Snape turned against him the moment he started hunting down Lily etc)? No, that conversation isn't in the movie.

    How long/what happens in Harry and Voldemort’s duel? It’s pretty long. You see them fighting around the staircases in Hogwarts. They get to the tower and Harry grabs him and jumps off the tower. They struggle, flying in the air. At one point, it looks like they merged into one being. Kind of creepy. Finally, you see the part in the trailer where they’re dueling. Harry defeats him and Voldemort disintegrates.

    What is the “Harry and Voldemort fall over a cliff” part… how does that happen and play out? They start flying and struggling each other in the air. At one point they become one person.

    Does the battle between Voldemort and Harry begin in the Great Hall then move out? Does Voldemort scream when Bellatrix dies, like in the book? It begins in the staircases, then to the tower, then outside. He doesn’t scream when she dies.

    What do you mean Voldemort and Bellatrix disintegrates? Like Riddle in the movie Chamber of Secrets at the end? We didn’t get to see it.. They captioned on the screen that disintegration was supposed to happen. A lot of the effects aren’t finished yet.
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of the last scene after Voldemort's death between the trio.
    Quote:
    What is the last scene before the epilogue? The trio standing on the broken bridge between Hogsmeade and Hogwarts. Harry breaks the Elder Wand and throws it off the bridge.
  • In a report from LeakyCauldron on the test screening is mention of Neville killing nagini, Bellatrix/Molly duel, and the final confrontation between Harry and Voldemort.
    Quote:
    In the category of 'applause and cheers moments' falls Bellatrix's duel with Mrs. Weasley. "Not my daughter, you *****" is delivered exactly how one would imagine it, and their fight atop a raised platform in the Great Hall is a momentary show stopper.

    The film maintains the illusion that Harry is dead until he leaps from Hagrid's arms in the Hogwarts courtyard. Narcissa is seen checking for signs of life, but none are visible at that moment. The final battle between Harry and Voldemort spans the last fifteen minutes of the film, which is inter cut with Ron and Hermione's attempts to kill Nagini. They do not deprive Neville of his moment, however, who stands up to Voldemort and gives a rallying cry to keep fighting for Harry even after it is thought Harry is dead. Neville steps in to kill the snake seconds before it is set to pounce on Hermione and Ron.

    Harry and Voldemort's final duel is as wide-ranging and epic as the rest of the film's action. It goes so far as to have Harry grab a hold of Voldemort and send the pair careening off a tower into the depths, forcing Voldemort to fly with Harry across and through the castle. In the end it is just Voldemort and Harry facing each other. With Nagini, his last horcrux, finished, Harry is able to end the Dark Lord's mortal life with a spell as simple as "Expelliarmus." The wand flies from Voldemort's grasp into Harry's hands, and Voldemort slowly decays into dark nothingness.


  


  • In March 2010 a visitor of Leavesden Studios photographed one of the outdoor sets of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Because of the absence of similar sets used in previous movies, it can be assumed that this set will be new and therefore there will be introduced another bridge of Hogwarts. According to the witness, they filmed a scene at night where actor Ralph Fiennes walked across the bridge as Lord Voldemort.
Set: Hogwarts Bridge:    


    


  • In a set report from CHUD was mention of two different sized copies of the same body. It is thought that the two bodies are Harry so that Hagrid can carry one of them back to the castle from the forest.
    Quote:
    Laying on a table in front of them are a couple of corpses from the new film, corpses whose identities will remain secret for now. One is normal size and one is smaller, so that it can be held by Hagrid and make Robbie Coltrane look much bigger.
  • The fifth tv spot was released, of interest is a shot of the procession carrying Harry's body across the viaduct bridge in the morning. [video]

  • In an interview Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) mentions filming some of the final scenes including the Battle of Hogwarts:
    Quote:
    What's it like working on the set, because obviously they are quite grand sets? TOM FELTON: It is. Especially at the moment we are shooting some of the final scenes and there is two hundred cast members on set including ten of Britain's finest actors, so yeah obviously there's a lot of energy on set and everyone's very keen to do the best work they could possible do now that it's the last one of the series.
  • In an interview, Tom Felton made mention of a showdown between the forces of good and evil:
    Quote:
    It's kind of cool, because this is the first time we've had so many cast members on one set at one time, especially everyone from the evil camp and everyone from the good camp in a Western-style showdown — without revealing too much. It's an amazing last scene, what we've shot of it so far. It's very exciting.

    I've rarely had an opportunity to work with the evil family. I'm working with Helena Bonham Carter, who's a lovely lady and also a completely scary witch when she wants to be. I'm enjoying working with adult cast tremendously.
  • Actor Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) discusses a little bit about the Battle of Hogwarts:
    Quote:
    They made the last book into two films, and it was a fantastic experience because everyone who is left alive is back… and even some of the dead people. There is one long sequence where everyone who is left standing is there when the forces of good meet the forces of evil.
  • There were photos from a sticker book released, of interest are shots of many characters standing around when Voldemort and Neville give their speeches in the entrance courtyard right before the final confrontation.

  • Actor Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) discusses his character during Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
    Quote:
    By the time you get to the last two films, you see Draco moving out from the shadows of his father because he can finally see what his father is. There are those seminal moments: when everybody's back is against the wall and things are truly dangerous, I would walk over him to get to the exit door. I would use him in order to restore my name, and it's not in his best interests. There is a moment in the final film, where, just very briefly, in my own mind I'm trying to choose between being a good father and being a loyal general. It might only be a frame in the film, but for me that was a massive moment for Lucius, and I think it's a big moment for Draco. Those people who had read the book know what I'm talking about, but for me he becomes extremely heroic.

    Have you worked with Ralph Fiennes yet? What was that like? CHRIS RANKIN: That was scary. There was a scene we were shooting where he comes right up to my face. I thought I was going to wet myself. I have to say, it took a lot of concentration to not just scream like a girl and run for the hills.
  • In an interview Rupert Grint (Ronald Weasley) mentions Voldemort's character:
    Quote:
    What’s Ralph Fiennes like on set? He looks pretty sinister at the best of times… RUPERT GRINT: This is the first film that I’ve been on set with him. My character doesn’t usually come into contact with Lord Voldemort thank god. Obviously he has to stay in make-up for most of the day when he’s shooting. He managed to reduce one young child who visited the set to tears recently, he definitely enjoyed that. But he gives everything to all the scenes he’s in and he’s got some really good scenes in this one.
  • The Official Teaser Trailer showed a moment where Voldemort and his Death Eaters charge on the remaining Defenders of Hogwarts, shooting and blocking spells which are absent due to unfinished visual effects:
Picture: Charging:    


    


  • An exclusive sneak peek at Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows from ABC Family showed footage of the Death Eaters battling the Defenders of Hogwarts right after the battle resumes at the courtyard:

Nagini Chase
  • A set report from collider mentions the hallway at Hogwarts where a major battle takes place in Part 2. It is unclear what major battle they are talking about for Part 2, but it is possible that they are talking about the Nagini Chase scenes.
    Quote:
    The next place we walked through was the least impressive (but probably one of the coolest): we walked around generic Hogwarts hallways. While the Ministry set was cool, and the Great Hall amazing, walking through the corridors made me feel like I was a student and on my way to Professor McGonagall’s transfiguration class. Also, we were told where we were walking had some of the big moments from previous movies like where Ron and Lavender kissed, and it’s the hallway that Harry took to go to Slughorn’s party. It’s also the hallway where a major battle takes place in Deathly Hallows.
  • Actor Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) lets slip a mention of a scene where Ron and Hermione are being chased by Nagini during the battle. [video]
    Quote:
    It's crazy. The battle scenes in Hogwarts and I must have run up and down those Hogwarts steps what felt like a hundred million times. I was terrified that I was going to smash my head open. So i am excited to see all of that and I hope it looks really good. There is this huge chase scene that Ron and I have with Nagini.
  • There were photos released, of interest is a behind the scenes shot of Ron and Hermione running down the stairs most likely during the Nagini chase at the end of the film during the final confrontation.
Photo of Ron and Hermione running down the stairs:    


    


  • The first theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest is a shot of Nagini in Hogwarts with where it looks like someone has just shot a spell at her. [video]
Screencaps of Nagini:    


  

  


  • The trailer also showed Ron protecting Hermione amidst of the battle, standing inside the completely ruined and wrecked Entrance Hall with the same achromatic sky in the background as seen in other pictures:
Pictures: Ron and Hermione:    


    


  • During a fanchat, actor Matthew Lewis mentioned the beheading of Nagini by his character Neville Longbottom:
    Quote:
    "I don't have a script yet so I can't be exactly sure how everything is going to work out. However, I think my answer will be a bit predictable. The scene I'm looking forward to the most is when Neville swings the sword and kills Nagini. That is going to be intense! In fact, the whole final battle sequence is going to be amazing. Still can't believe they're going to trust me with a sword though!"
  • The second mini clip was released, of interest is Ron and Hermione shooting spells at Nagini as she chases them and they fall holding each other. [video]
  • The second theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest is a shot of Ron and Hermione holding each other. This is most likely after falling over as the snake dives at them. [video]
Screencaps of Ron and Hermione:    


    


  • There was a photo released of Neville holding the sword of Gryffindor. This photo is consistent with what he will look like after he kills Nagini.
Picture: Neville and the sword of Gryffindor:    


    


  • There was a photo released of Neville in the entrance courtyard most likely after he has killed the snake, Nagini, with the sword of Gryffindor.

Molly Weasley and Bellatrix Lestrange Duel
  • In an interview Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) mentions fighting Bellatrix in Deathly Hallows Part 2.
    Quote:
    What will we see of Ginny in the second part of Deathly Hallows? BONNIE WRIGHT: I think, really, the character in this second part evolves a lot. She fights Bellatrix and more, I can't say much but in this part Ginny is great, apart from the epilogue, which I don't know if you knew but we reshot it back in December.
  • In an interview with What's On TV, Julie Walters spoke briefly about the duel between Molly and Bellatrix:
    Quote:
    "It is back to Harry Potter. Mrs Weasley has a lot to do this time. I kill Helena Bonham Carter for a start – and not many can say that. We have a bit of a wand contest, I can’t wait."
  • Actor Julie Walters (Molly Weasley) mentions killing Bellatrix for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. [video]
  • Helena Bonham Carter mentioned the death of her characters Bellatrix in an interview with Rotten Tomatoes:
    Quote:
    "I'm mostly in Deathly Hallows: Part 2, " she told RT. "But it was fun. I died on my last day, which was really weird -- to actually be [killed] on my last day. Molly Weasley - Julie Walters - kills me."

    "And it'll be quite the moment. I do get a good death scene," she told us. "It was really exhausting. As usual! [I'm] dueling, with a wand, on a table. I fell right off. I was clever enough to say, 'If you're going to ask me to duel, backwards, can we put a stuntman at the end?' They said, 'Ah, you won't need one.' And what did I do? Walked straight off."

The Story: Ginny getting stunned by Bellatrix:    


    


  • There were photos from a sticker book released, of interest is a shot of Molly, Arthur, George, and Ginny in what is most likely the great hall. They are probably all looking up at Bellatrix and this is the moment when Molly says her famous line.

Re: The All-Inclusive DH Part 2 List

Chapter: 36 & Epilogue 29/June/11 updated ch. 36 & epilogue

Chapter 36: The Flaw in the Plan (continued):    


  

The Final Confrontation
  • In an interview Ralp Fiennes (Voldemort) and Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) discuss the character of Voldemort.
    Quote:
    "He's really sort of the devil," says Fiennes. "He's completely emotionally detached. He has no empathy. You find that in psychopaths." "It's about power with Voldemort," he says. "It's an aphrodisiac for him. Power makes him feel alive."

    "Jo Rowling has always said that the thing that separates Harry from Voldemort is that Harry is not afraid of death," Radcliffe says. Radcliffe was consistently unsettled by Fiennes. "When Ralph's doing his Voldemort stuff, he just really freaks me out."
  • Actor Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) did an interview in makeup with some cuts and blood on his face as well as a green screen shirt under his jacket.
Picture: Harry with cuts on his face:    


    


  • In an interview production designer Stuart Craig discussed the destruction of Hogwarts during the Final Confrontation.
    Quote:
    And all that fire and this light coming through and big sections knocked down…

    STUART CRAIG: The sun rising behind the smoke and all those considerations but as I say the big big challenge was the massive remains of destroyed walls, the entrance hall, the entrance of the great hall, part of the roof of the great hall completely gone, so yeah, a big challenge there, and an enjoyable one really. Maybe it helped me and the guys in the art department sort of prepare for the end really We demolished it before we had to strike it completely.

    And then in part two the big thing is the destruction of Hogwarts, and I couldn't just go round and knock holes in what we had I had to reinvent it to a large extent a ruined building has to be -- the profile has to be good, has to be strong -- has to be designed as a ruin rather just the original design knocked around a bit.

    Also the architecture juxtaposed with the people and the death, you know the way in the books I remember really well the bodies against the architecture. The kind of light that you use in that is going to be very interesting.

    The big stand off, the final stand off between Voldemort and Harry is in the courtyard in front of the school and the light--what is essentially the sunrise, is very effective in that.

Dueling on the Stairs
  • Voldemort disapparates all over the castle following Harry throughout the final confrontation duel.
  • The second theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest are shots of Harry and Voldemort dueling on the stairs during the final confrontation. [video]
Screencaps of Harry and Voldemort dueling on the stairs:    


    



Dueling on the Catwalks
  • There was a photo released of Harry on the catwalks in a tower. This seems to be around the same time as the 'why do you live?' scene.
Photo of Harry in a tower:    


    


  • The first theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest are shots of Voldemort shooting some sort of binding spell at Harry on the catwalks. [video]

  • The second theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest are shots of Voldemort using his robes to bind Harry on the catwalks during the final confrontation. [video]
Screencaps of Voldemort with his robes swirling around him:    


  

  


Sticker book: Harry on the tower with Voldemort's hand on his face:    


    


  • In the Official Teaser Trailer of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, there was an unknown face-to-face confrontation between Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort inside the castle of Hogwarts:
    Quote:
    Lord Voldemort: "Why do you live?"

    Harry Potter: "Because I have something worth living for."
Picture: Face-to-Face Confrontation:    


     



Dueling on the Cliff
  • In a report from Cinema con there was mention of an added bit during the final confrontation where Harry and Voldemort fall off a tower or a cliff.
    Quote:
    The location of Harry and Voldemort's fight. I think we've got a sense of this before. They are kind of outside of Hogwarts by themselves. Harry has this line where he says Voldemort “Let's end this how we started it...together.” And he then like grabs Voldemort by the shoulders and they fall off...
  • The first theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest are shots of Harry and Voldemort on top of Hogwarts castle over a big chasm. Harry grabs Voldemort and says "Come on Tom. Let's begin this how we started...together." [video]
Screecaps of Harry and Voldemort on top of Hogwarts:    


  



  



Final Moments of the Duel in the Courtyard
  • The first theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest are shots of Harry crawling towards his wand in the entrance courtyard. [video]
Screencap of Harry crawling towards his wand:    


    


  • The second theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, of interest is a shot of Voldemort crawling towards the elder wand and both of them shooting the final spell. [video]
Screencaps of Harry and Voldemort shooting the final spell:    


  





  


  • The same Trailer gave us an exclusive look at the actual final confrontation between Harry and his arch-nemesis, which is set at the Entrance Courtyard instead of the Great Hall. Something noteworthy is the connection between the Elder Wand and Draco Malfoy’s hawthorn wand, which is similar to the connection between Lord Voldemort and Albus Dumbledore’s wands in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

    This most likely indicates a change in the wand-plot, to make it more understandable and less complicated for the audiences to understand.
Pictures: The Final Confrontation:    


  



  


  • The first tv spot for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released, of interest is a shot of Voldemort shooting the killing curse during the final confrontation. [video]

Aftermath of the Battle
  • In an interview with Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley) mentions a scene where he is sitting around talking to his on screen parents Arthur and Molly Weasley. This scene could possible take place after Voldemort is defeated.
    Quote:
    Julie Walters and Mark Williams, who played your screen mum and dad, what were they like to be around? CHRIS RANKIN: Fabulous. Absolutely fabulous. They really, really are. The camaraderie you see between them on set, on the screen, is exactly the same as the camaraderie between them and between all of us off the screen. I know there are at least a couple of takes that will be in Part 2 of Deathly Hallows where we didn’t even know they’d started rolling. We were so busy having a lovely … we were sitting on the set, a cup of tea in one hand, just having a chat - and somebody shouted, “Cut!” and we were like, “Oh.”
  • There were photos from a sticker book released, of interest are shots of Sprout, Flitwick, Slughorn, Neville, and Luna sitting around in the great hall.
Photos of people sitting around the great hall:    


  

  


TV Spot 11: Harry gives Hagrid a hug in the great hall after Voldemort's death:    


    


  • Director David Yates mentions the final scene at Hogwarts with the trio in the aftermath of the battle.
    Quote:
    We shot a scene on a viaduct outside of Hogwarts, and it was really beautiful, really sunny day. It was all beautiful backlit. And it's a very tender scene where they reflect on everything that's happened. All the battles and everything. And they hold hands. And the camera pulls away. It's a really tender and lovely scene. And Emma particularly.. I said 'look guys, this is the last scene we're going to do with you three together. so it's not just the last scene with these three characters in the movie, this is your last scene in this series of films. That's what today is about.' And it infused it with a kind of emotion which is really moving actually.


  



Epilogue: Nineteen Years Later:    


  

Spoilers from the test screening on the Epilogue:    


  
  • In a report from the test screening by theyoungfolks there was mention of the epilogue.
    Quote:
    How does it transition to the epilogue? It fades to black and then you see the Potter family at the train station.

    In the epilogue, do they mention the fact that Ron has passed his driving test? No, they don't.

    And in the epilogue, does Harry still tell his son Albus Severus that one of his names comes from a Slytherin & he was probably the bravest man he ever knew? Yes, he says that to Albus.
  • In a report from Edward on the test screening.
    Quote:
    So tell us about the epilogue? I thought the epilogue was very good. It was shorter then what I was expecting. Harry has a conversation with Albus Severus about what if I am sorted into Slytherin.

    Are they good adults? They don't look like they've aged nineteen years. They also went back and refilmed this scene over Christmas to make it more suddle. Harry looks as if he's aged the most and Ron is a bit pudgier. I don't think Ron speaks at all he just stands there. I don't know if Remus and Tonk's son was there.
  • A test screening report from Rachezee.
    Quote:
    No Draco in Epilogue. Make-up was decent but barely noticeable. Only Abus Severus was named as far as they recalled but you can see the kid's initials on their school trunks. Harry's lines to him were lifted directly from the book.


  


  • The final chapter has been confirmed by Rupert Grint in an interview. In another interview, producer David Heyman confirmed that the original actors will play their adult fictional counterparts.
  • Producer David Heyman spoke briefly about the epilogue in an interview with Snitchseeker.com. According to the test screening Draco has been cut from the epilogue.
    Quote:
    SnitchSeeker.com: "Tom Felton mentioned his girlfriend Jade might play his wife in the epilogue. Did you cast her or the children of the trio yet?"
    David Heyman: "I have no idea, no. Unfortunately we haven't yet cast that section. He may want to cast his girlfriend."
    SnitchSeeker: "Yes."
    Heyman: "He does?"
    SnitchSeeker: "He really does."
    Heyman: "Okay, good. Well, I'll keep that in mind ... Nobody's been cast yet for that part."
    It was confirmed later that Tom Felton's real-life girlfriend Jade Gordon would indeed be portraying Draco Malfoy's wife in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
  • Tom Felton also spoke about the epilogue at a memorabilia convention According to the test screening Draco has been cut from the epilogue.
    Quote:
    Tom was asked if he was to be used in the epilogue and as yet doesn't know but he told us that a mold of his face and the others was made last year and he was asked to provide photos of his brothers & father and remarked he couldn't wait to see himself wrinkly.
  • Producers David Heyman and David Barron discuss the reshoots of the epilogue. This suggests that they did rework the makeup in this scene from what we have in the photos so the following photos are most likely not what will be the final look for the trio plus Ginny in the film.
    Quote:
    When you went back and reshot the epilogue at the end of the film, was it mostly tweaking the makeup effects? It was a couple of reasons. One it was the makeup, that was the first thing. The other was, to be honest, we were limited by shooting at King's Cross. It really limited our ability to block. And in terms of performance, these little kids, some of who weren't actors, were drowned by the noise of the trains, the announcements. That was really a problem. When we filmed it back at the studio, we brought the trains to the studio and filled the station in digitally. It's really beautiful.

    Are most of the effects makeup, or is there any CGI in there? Not really. A little bit of tweaking.

    How did the actors go into the scene, growing into themselves 15 years later? They look good. It's subtle. It's going to be very interesting to see the response, since inevitably we know it's Dan, Rupert, and Emma, and we've just seen them as 17-year-olds. Initially we went a little further [with the effects], and then we pulled it back. Sometimes if you try too hard you're really aware of the work. You won't have huge wrinkles, obviously there's a difference, but you still resemble yourself.
  • Pictures of Harry Taylor, the actor who portrayed a Muggle Station Guard in the first two movies, surfaced online, showing him on set and fully dressed up as his unnamed yet famous fictional counterpart.
Behind the Scenes: Station Guard:    


    


  • Actor Luke Newberry was confirmed to play Teddy Lupin, son of Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks, and was photographed as he entered Kings Cross Station to shoot the epilogue.
Behind the Scenes: Teddy Lupin:    


    


  • The filming took place for the epilogue in May 2010 at Kings Cross Station, and was one of the last parts to be shot. Several pictures of the actors fully made up as their characters were taken by bystanders. As stated above the epilogue was reshot after these photos were taken and the makeup was tweaked. Also Draco and his wife and son were cut from the test screening.
