Report on “Deathly Hallows” Being Printed in Dark False and More

There has been a video making the rounds of late from a French television newscast purporting to show Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows supposedly being printed in Germany, moreover this was taking place in the dark. Readers will remember this stems from the earlier report from the Mirror claiming that the last Harry Potter books are being printed by workers “forced to work in total DARKNESS.” Thanks much to Bloomsbury, we now know this ridiculous claim is FALSE as the books are not being printed in the dark.
As to the footage of the book itself, as Pruneau from Gazette-du let us know, cameras are not allowed in the factory, and the footage shown we can now confirm is NOT of Deathly Hallows, nor from any printer being used this time. It is very likely file footage of book printing, and the close up of the text they show is from “Order of the Phoenix.” If you would like to watch this news report, with English subtitles, click here.

Thanks Pruneau!
