Possible Filming for “Deathly Hallows” Due in Scottish Highlands


Nov 20, 2008

Posted by SueTLC

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.

Anyways, WOO, super excited to hear the news!Avatar Image says: Ahhh, don't the storylines of all of the Harry Potter books involve plenty of witches and warlocks (should be wizards by the way)?Avatar Image says: 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.Avatar Image says: I LOVE IT!Avatar Image says: 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.Avatar Image says: 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.Avatar Image says: THAT GOOD NEWS, I AM GLAD THEY TAKING THIS MOVIE VERY SERIOUS BECAUSE IT SHOULD BE THE BEST.......ONE AOF ALL.Avatar Image says: 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.Avatar Image says: Emma is taking a nod from Hermione... besides... l besides ots of the action happens in the snow.... I applaud her for wanting to take her studies seriously. this is going to be good... Avatar Image says: I think it is more common for people in other countries to wait a year before starting university. Avatar Image says: Listen, baby Ain't no mountain high... Ain't no vally low...Ain't no river wide enough, baby If you need me, call me...No matter where you are... No matter how far... Just call my name I'll be there in a hurry... You don't have to worry 'Cause baby, THERE AIN'T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH AIN'T NO VALLEY LOW ENOUGH AIN'T NO RIVER WIDE ENOUGH!! To keep me from getting to you... ....... Sorry! I wanted to share my moment of euphoria.Avatar Image says: Thio, LOL. I LOVE that song!Avatar Image says: KB, Yeah!! It totally sticks in your mind, doesn't it? I love it too!! Makes me want to go out on the streets and dance around the neighbourhood.... which I don't, of course.Avatar Image says: 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. ;-)Avatar Image says: Just think, in 3 months we'll have Hagrid's hut pictures. LoL. Oh I just got sad thinking about that....Avatar Image says: IM BRITISHAvatar Image says: yay for scotland!Avatar Image says: very cool that they are getting ready to film DH, and the locations they have stated will be excellent, I wonder if they will use an existing town to repersent Godric's Hollow or build it for the film(s), yes there does seem plenty of time to do the filming before Emma goes to university as they can always do the post production and finalize the special effects and the CGI that willbe needed for DH, the dragon in Gringots for example ( they better not cut that part!) lots of work to put inthe magic effects for the battle of Hogwarts and for the 7 harry potters chapter, in both of those parts in DH spells are flying everywhere! kinda makes me sad to hear this as well as it means they are one little step closer to the end of the HP films :( but all good things must end so shall the HP films
