Possible Filming for "Deathly Hallows" Due in Scottish Highlands

Officials from the Harry Potter films have been reported to scouting for locations in the Highlands of Scotland to be used in filming the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows films. Lochaber News reports that:

Film executives and location and special effects personnel have just completed an updating recce of the four picturesque glens which have featured in all the previous Harry Potter blockbuster...Teams of cinematography experts and production designers visited Glenfinnan, Glen Etive, Glencoe and Glen Nevis, all Lochaber landmarks which have already become established in the series.

They were looking at the autumn and winter changes of the terrain, trees and vegetation in these areas, and have since been in Yorkshire examining tracts of moorland to supplement the Highland locations.

The article continues to note:

The West Highland locations have already proved they can lend themselves to the spooky side of things, and this will be particularly important with Deathly Hallows because the storyline involves plenty of ghosts, witches and warlocks.

And Highlanders with local knowledge, and guides to provide mountain safety cover, will be required to ensure that the film crews can access and operate in remote and difficult filming spots.

It is understood that Emma Watson, who has starred as Hermione Granger throughout the Harry Potter series, will be going to university next year, and this will have a bearing on the early filming.

Ahhh, don’t the storylines of all of the Harry Potter books involve plenty of witches and warlocks (should be wizards by the way)?

With regard to Emma Watson going to University, the English University term generally starts in October or late September, so her filming is more likely to be earlier rather than later, though Hermione is in almost every chapter in DH.

Emma may go to the US to study. Who says she’ll stay in the UK? I got to give her props about wanting to continue her studies. Life goes on outside of HP.

But she is putting her studies on hold until Deathly Hallows finishes filming, this makes it sound as if they are working it around HER schedule.

Emma isn’t putting her studies on hold. She is taking a gap yr this yr and starting uni next fall, 2009. They are working around her schedule. She stated they always knew she put her education first and they agreed to work around it. So they will.

I think it is more common for people in other countries to wait a year before starting university.

Filming is going to be starting before we know it. :| I can’t believe this will be our last time to pray for a chance to get on set. But I’m still really excited. ;-)
