Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows to Begin Filming in Two Weeks


Feb 06, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

As a follow to the article below, the BBC is now reporting additional information on main filming for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. With the set now reopened following the accident with a stunt person, a spokesman for WB said of the upcoming Harry Potter filming:

“We have not begun filming yet and will not do so for another two weeks. This has always been the case,” she said.

“Filming will commence mid-February and go through to spring 2009.”

As we first told you last December, filming on the seventh Harry Potter movie is due to run 54 weeks. This also follows Dan Radcliffe’s earlier remarks about hoping to begin filming on the 15th of the month as well. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be released in two parts, the first November 2010, followed by Part 11 in May 2011.

Hopefully we will get the heads up to any on location filming as i loved going to it last year. Avatar ImageMelissa Anne says: That is great news! Avatar Imagejenbabe705 says: AHHH!! Its so soon!Avatar ImageGobbledygook says: woot woot!Avatar Imageomgitslouise says: Aaaaah I'm so excited!!!!!!! =DAvatar ImageMelissa Anne says: But then again the sooner they start filming, the sooner the movies will come out and then there will be no more new Harry Potter books OR movies! Sad...sigh...Avatar Imagecallicott3 says: A little early to panic, kids! I think they are going to spend a lot of time, on this, and have their schedule down. Baring [anymore] serious accidents [well wishes continue to our Stuntman] things should run smoothly. I seriously doubt that the same....um.....miscalculations will be made, as were made with the release of 'Half Blood Prince'! It appears they have left quite a bit of time for this shooting. Also, they are shooting BOTH movies, "back-to-back".Avatar ImageMatea says: oh...... :( the end begins .... ;( but I'm so excited!and happy and sad.mixed emotions...after so many years with these films...I remember the emptiness I felt after reading DH...but I was like-at least we have the films.only DH left...wowAvatar ImageLeron_Weasley_616 says: I can't believe they're starting to film DH already. Its NUTS!! I'm so excited for the remaining movies!!!!Avatar Imagetinagin says: This makes me happy and sad at the same time.Avatar ImageDolemite says: Yay 3 Movies in a row!Avatar Imagehp29 says: i can't wait!! so exctied!!Avatar ImageTheCrogePodge says: Which all means that we should see Hagrid's Hut any day now.Avatar ImageHeavenly_Horcrux says: Yay! I can't wait!Avatar Image.bother says: Hugrids Hut Pic!Avatar ImageeiVega says: Wow...it's going to be emotional journey ahead. Soon it will be the LAST first day back when they get to see eachother again...knowing that they don't get to do this another time around You see in special features how strong of a family a crew becomes. The very last day of filming will be intense also. I can imagine all the hugs and crying...wow...Avatar ImageNatalie says: I can't believe that the last film is being shot... I mean, we live with these movies (and books) almost half our lives... :( I really hope they are going to do justice with this amazing last book.. But I really don't want to find out where they'll split it.. It'd be cool if it was a surprise!Avatar Imagedecarus says: half are lives? right.Avatar ImageethanHP says: Since Daniel's last Equus' performace on Broadway takes place this Sunday I figured the DH filming would start soon, but I didn't think it would be so soon! That's good I guess since this filming will be the longest, but does this mean they will be filming some months, stop to promote HBP and then start filimg again? That must be a first in cinema history!Avatar Imagewizardlibrarian says: I just hope they do a good job with the last one. I was slightly disapointed with Pheonix, leaving out Lilly was pretty dumb. Avatar ImageHarrys Horntail says: This is really exciting; this is my favourite book so I really hope they do a great job with the movies. It still seems weird to be still waiting for HBP to come out and for the next one to start shooting :)Avatar ImageMcGiggles92 says: I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS MOVIE. Half-Blood Prince is going to be awesome, but Deathly Hallows is my favorite book. CAN'T WAIT! Avatar ImageFelipe_Q says: I can't wait to find out when the split is happening! I think these last two movies are going to be epic, especially the last one, with the battle and all. WB has never done a great job at keeping things exactly like they are in the books, and the series has had its flaws, with continuity between films, etc, etc... but they always deliver on the action and special effects, so the battle will be impressive to say the least! I'm very excited!!Avatar Imagehericus says: If they havent started filming yet, how did harrys stunt double get injured? i thought it was on the set of DH... Idk =[ (havent read the artical it probably explains it) Anyway can't wait for this... its the begining of the end, then again we got to probably wait about a year and a half from part 1 of DH to part 2 but still its exciting! Avatar Imagelnh92 says: I can't believe it.Avatar Imagelnh92 says: It's ending. :(Avatar Imagepottervfd says: Two weeks! It's hard to believe! This is the last time we'll get those first pictures of Hagrid's Hut. And then it's over! :( I wonder where they'll split it. I personally think it'll be after Ron comes back. I can't wait for both of these movies!! They're going to be epic!Avatar Imageugurbocegi says: Hurraaaaay!Avatar Imageivyclarice says: It's amazing, but I think I'm almost as excited as when the book was first coming out!Avatar Imagemaddypuff says: Yayy :D I wonder how they'll end the first part of the movie.Avatar ImageAga Veneficus says: Huzzah!Avatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: Woohoo! That's exciting, can't wait!Avatar ImageTiahn says: YAY I'm so excited. I like that its coming out in 2010&11 cos it will last longer!Avatar ImageCatherine says: SQUEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited! They sold take their time though I don't want everything to be over too soon!!!!Avatar Imagegrimnakjarman says: Go Deathly Hallows!, um does it really say they are only filming till the spring of 09 that can't be Avatar ImageLargeBlondDeathEater says: Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean)/Sascha Baron Cohen (Borat) as XENOPHILIUS LOVEGOOD PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Yay! Finally! I can't wait to see the Deathly Hallows movies!!! I want them now, though. I'm not a very patient person. Accio Deathly Hallows!!!!Avatar Imagelinnie95 says: Can't wait to see these two movies!!!! Interested in seeing where they split them!!! Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: Aww, I don't even want to think about the movies ending! I'll literally cry myself to sleep in the theater =( Oh, and I think that the WHOLE cast - like everyone who's been in HP - should take a picture in the Great Hall. You know, as a group. Wow. That would be amazing. (:Avatar Imagechoirgeek says: I can't decide whether I'm really excited that filming for DH is finally starting, or if I'm really sad because there won't be another movie coming out after this :(Avatar ImageTheProphecy says: :*( I cant believe its almost over!Avatar Imagepadfoot84sb says: ahhhh i cant believe the filming is so close!!!! im so excited! Avatar ImageiLoveDolores says: OMG i just cant wait for this movie to be released. Its is going to be the best yet! I just cant beleive that filming starts in two weeks, its all sooo real now. Its sort of like the beginning of the end :( The last movie of the last book. But we will always have leaky, and pottercast :DAvatar Imagehermyone08 says: Filming for the last movies; that's quite exciting!Avatar ImageArun.91 says: it’s nice to know they will be filming soon. Avatar Imagemomentofzen says: SQUEEE. I'm so excited!Avatar ImageWhisperwing says: Aw, they're waiting until after Valentine's Day! Well, naturally, right?

When filming goes until, I mean...Avatar ImageAutumnWizard says: It all cannot happen fast enough for me!!Avatar Imagearyell says: Aw! Bittersweet it's almost all over.
