As you may know, the final Harry Potter films are currently filming around London. And as such, the cast and crew have been photographed by a large number of people.
ComingSoon.net was lucky enough to get a whole bunch of photos from the set. Some of actual filming, some of the cast just hanging out. Either way, it’s a pretty cool gallery. Click the image below to head over to ComingSoon, to see the whole gallery.
The Daily Mirror (a British paper) published the first photo from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It’s unclear if this photo is from part one or part two. In case you weren’t aware, the final book will be released as two separate movies, part one on November 19, 2010, followed by part two on July 15, 2011.
Here’s Harry walking through a forest of some sort.
Finally, the fans will get what they have been asking for – to preserve the story of the novel, the seventh Harry Potter movie (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) will be split into two movies, according to England’s The Mail.
For years fans have been saying that they would be willing to watch the longer versions of the films, or even two movies, as long as the story remained intact. After all, they have taken the time to read the hundreds and hundreds of pages in the books – a couple of extra hours in a movie theater is nothing compared with that.
Portions of the books have been left out since the beginning, but I believe the cutting of the Quidditch storyling in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was the final straw for fans. Even Ms. Rowling herself has previously commented that, “It is simply impossible to incorporate every storyline into a film under four hours long.”
Hopefully whoever is chosen to direct Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will do right by the story, and by the fans. What do you think? Are you willing to sit through a four-hour movie to see the story as it was intended? Or do you prefer HP 5 director David Yates’ style of making the movie shorter?
