Haha =) But this is so sad :( I swear, it seems just like yesterday that they were starting to film HBP! Now it's already DH! Wow.Avatar Imageboushh says: Wow. It has begun. It should be interesting to learn little things about the last of the films. I wish Emma lots of luck on her first day back, even though she doesn't know it. ;)Avatar ImageMuggleQueen says: Awesome, I can't wait to see more of DH movies! *desperately wants to know where the split will be*Avatar Imagepottersparks says: Excellent, cant wait for HBP, it will be sad once they have all been completed. and how long we have to wait for the Last installment!!! So glad they are making it two films, they would have ut too much out otherwise!!Avatar ImageLemonFaerie says: COOL!!! I know we won't get real info on filming for a while, but it is good to know things are moving forward. I cannot WAIT for this movie!!!Avatar ImageDoireann says: Oh kool cant wait 4 set pics!!!! :) Avatar Imagesnunkiebrian says: Oh i don't like reading this news, it means everything is actually going to come to an end one day...Nooooo but cool they are starting filming!Avatar Imagecdewson says: ahhhhh the Beginning of the End has comeAvatar ImageLemonySherbert says: I can't believe they're already starting the filming for the last movie[s]! Things will be soooo slow after DH Part 2 comes out... I don't want it to end! D: *tear*Avatar ImageLucia Meadows says: Good for her. I'm sure Emma, like the rest of us, feels this is a bittersweet beginning.Avatar Imagejenvomitvos says: it's the beginning of the end! oh no! hopefully the first part really will come out in november!Avatar ImageShane says: Weeeee! I'm so excited to see some DH Hermione. She totally rocks it out in that last book.Avatar ImageAmy Darlene says: jumping up and down! ooooh i cant wait.. Avatar Imagetaekwondochik44 says: OMG this is awesome!!!! It's finally starting! I can't wait! OMG!! =DAvatar Imagescarletti1 says: Ooh goodie! I'm very excited! Let's just keep in mind, we still have a year of filming ahead of us, plus the HP theme park to look forward to. Let's not get too upset yet, we still have things to enjoy for the future. :)Avatar ImageMatea says: soooooo coooooolAvatar ImageMaggieM says: I have such contradicting feelings! I really don't want it to end...ever. But I can't wait to see it. It really does seem like yesterday that the very first movie came outAvatar Imagehp29 says: thats awesome! I cant wait!Avatar ImageFonty says: The last first day of any Harry Potter shoot ... Avatar ImageBeAchL0veEr05 says: Oh my gosh!!!!! Amazing! :) The first part is coming out 4 days before my 16th b-day! Great b-day present! =D <3Avatar ImageUndesirable No. 1 says: Wow this is really exciting! It's the beginning of the end just as Chad said. :')Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: I love getting updates about the filming! :)Avatar ImageAttolia says: It's so weird that they're starting filming for the seventh before the sixth comes out. *sigh*Avatar ImageNayNay3782 says: Oh yes! But its sort of sad, in a way, since this will almost be the end of filming harry potter movies...FOREVER! *sigh* its sortof a bittersweet moment. and like "Chad" said, "ahhhhh the beginning of the end has come..."Avatar Imagerunaroundkid says: Yay! I wish all the cast and crew the best with this production -- of course we're all hoping these are going to be the best movies yet! The November/May release is a bit confusing to me though. Are the two DH movies really going to be marketed as completely separate films? I mean, will we see premieres, interviews, promotion etc. for both? Or just for the first one, in November, and then the 2nd will come out quietly? And will the DVD for the first one be released before the 2nd is even in theatres, or will they wait and release them together? It's a strange situation for sure. I'm interested to see how WB handles the promotion. Avatar ImagePineappleCrush says: I'll be like everyone else... it's the beginning of the end!! :( But it's also super exciting because we can see set pics and casting info and stuff like that. :) Those are really good questions, runaroundkid. I have no idea, I never thought about that before, especially about the DVD's.... :/Avatar ImageLady of the Lake says: I'm excited about the parties that are sure to happen at each release! yay!Avatar ImageeiVega says: So exciting! I only imagine what it must be like on the set!Avatar Imagewizardinventor says: Wow! The end is coming soon! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! : OAvatar Imagewizardinventor says: Yay!Avatar ImageeiVega says: @ runaroundkid. Here's my best theory. The window for a DVD release is 4-6 months after the theatrical run. If Part 1 comes out in November, then we can see it's DVD for sale between March - May. They will use the launch of the DVD to boost awareness of Part 2. There will be synergy in the marketing campaign. Just as Order of Pheonix DVD provided a glimpse of the production of Half-Blood Prince, I think this DVD will get us ready for Part 2. It will be a giant marketing campaign. The end of an era. The Part 2 DVD won't come out until the Holidays. Big Summer movies are available for Christmas presents. Since it is an earlier May release it might hit stores more on the November Thanksgiving end than December. Honestly, looking at the calendar it would be pretty cool if the Part 2 DVD comes out on Tuesday, November 15, 2011. (Most DVDs come out on Tuesday). Since Sorcerer's Stone came out in theaters on Nov 16 2001 that would mark the grand finale of exactly 10 years of Harry Potter movie magic. Just my thoughts. :)Avatar ImageFonty says: Considering the attention span of the audience :) there will be two complete marketing campaigns. The usual interviews during the shooting will probably be split between the two movies, but all the rest, the premieres, junkets, photocalls, tv shows, will be done twice. Maybe not all the actors (especially all of the trio) will be available at both campaigns due to university or other films, but it will be two movies and therefore two marketing campaigns. Everything else would be quite a surprise. My idea of the promos for the 8th film would be a world tour of the trio and others attending as many premieres all over the world as possible. :) It is also most likely that the DH Part 1 DVD will hit stores before DH Part 2 hits theaters. This makes a lot of marketing sense and a preview of DH Part 2 could be included on the DVD. Such a preview could possibly be included at the end of DH Part 1 in the theaters also, but DVD is more likely, since it comes out closer to DH Part 2. It is unlikely that there will be a DH Part 3, even though Steve Kloves joked about that. :) Whether DH Part 2 will actually be released in May 2011 is not finally decided. I don´t think a fixed date for this (a day of release) will be announced before the year 2010. It is not entirely impossible that Warner will move DH Part 2 further ahead into 2011 up until November, which would be great for the 2012 Oscars. :-) But again, not quite so likely to happen. :) Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: It is almost impossible to believe that work is beginning on the end of this fantastic franchise. Good luck to the crew and cast as they undertake their efforts; best of luck on this adaptation!Avatar ImageSophie Treklemmer says: Wow... this is really it: the last film. It's so... bitter sweet. Avatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: That's so exciting, good luck Emma! I can't wait for the movies.Avatar ImageAga Veneficus says: I'm as sad and excited as everyone else. ;_; Good luck to Emma and the rest of the cast and crew.Avatar ImageHermioneRon4ever says: Like everyone else, I must say this is so bittersweet! Good Luck filming!Avatar ImageTami says: Yea it is hard to believe they are starting on the last film(s). It seems weird because HBP is still not out since they pushed it back :( It will be interesting to see the if they will release special sets and extended versions once the whole series is complete.Avatar ImageBradyboy says: Lol, I bet Emma is kissing rupbert tomorrow so she doesn't have to worry about it. Avatar Imagephantomdave79 says: this is kinda bitter sweet. I can't wait to see these movies but it means the end of any new Harry for along time or possible forever??!!?!?Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: Sweet! I'm so excited!!!!!!!!! I wonder what scene they will be filming first! I can't contain my excitement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagetinagin says: Squeeee! But yes this is so bittersweet.Avatar ImageMoody One says: Oh to be a fly on the wall! It's sad too. : (Avatar ImageShlesha says: My interest for HBP is now dying. I want DH now :PAvatar ImageShlesha says: My interest for HBP is now dying. I want DH now :PAvatar ImageFelipe_Q says: DH (film) is closer and closer!Avatar ImageCatherine says: Yay! Go Emma! We need our movies (they r 6 months apart!)Avatar ImageEvendar says: that picture of her is perfect. That is the hair I always pictured Hermione to have, even though I understand that in the movies she needs to be a little more vivacious than mousy to keep those boys watching her. xDDDAvatar Imageugurbocegi says: This is so exciting but I really want to see HBP first. Taking too long. :-(Avatar ImageNoella_Mansrot says: Yay! Filming, filming, filming, filming! I. Am. Excited!!!Avatar Imagelinnie95 says: Yeah I can't wait to see it. I have been reading the book again. I think it is the 10th time now. Wow Emma starts tomorrow. Where has the time gone!!!Avatar ImageKara000 says: Yeah!Avatar ImageHopelaa93 says: Good Luck Emma, can't wait!Avatar ImageRobbie Rowe says: On this very day, as I sit typing this in the computer chair, filming might actually be starting with Emma Watson!!!!!!!!!!!!! So soon and soooo COOL!!!Avatar ImageElinJ says: Exciting!!!Avatar ImageMelissa Anne says: very bittersweetAvatar Imagehannah abbot says: sooooo excited!!!Avatar Imagebookmonster79 says: I am so excited. I can't wait for it, but it's like waiting for the 7th book - exciting and yet sad at the same time. We'll all have to go through Post Potter Depression again.Avatar ImageAccioCloak says: Delighted it's getting underway, but I can understand why so many people have conflicting feelings about reaching the end of the film series! I'd love if someone started a cartoon HP TV series in a couple of years which put in all the details that got left out of the movies. Might even manage to keep it going long enough for the Scottish Book to come out!!Avatar ImageDobbyandWinky says: the end is comming... :OAvatar Imagekiwimci says: I'm gonna be so bummed when the last dvd comes out. Anyone else think the fandom might slow down after that? We all said it after the book, but I think that talk'll happen again after this last movie is goneAvatar ImageFonty says: TV series is a good idea, but could also be with real actors and no animation. Something Warner and HBO should do together. And it is bittersweet, but 3 movies and three DVDs still to come. And all the re-re-releases of the films with trio commentary and crew commentary and extensive making-ofs and all the promo interviews that they have ever filmed and and and ... the next couple of years will be great. :)Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: Yeahhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imageanne1 says: well we've got HP at least until midway through 2011, that's two whole years more.. plus we've got THREE films still to watch! But still, I am feeling a little emotional for the Trio, it's their last year at Hogwarts and has been such a major part of their lives for the past decade! Avatar ImagePureblood-Slytherin says: OMG, thats today!!!! it's so exciting and yet sad.. bittersweet!!! Avatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: Ooohhh... I wonder which scene she'll do first! :)Avatar ImageTheGoldenSeeker says: Oh, finally!!!! I am sure they all are very excited and Emma, too!!!! I hope there will be photos from the filming soon on line. . . Martina xxxAvatar ImageMcGiggles92 says: Deathly Hallows better be the best movie ever. They better go all out because they can afford it, and they'll make all that money back plus more!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagesunlitdays says: so is emma the first actor we know hows on set now? or are we assuming dan has started already? cuz she comes in once they come to get him at the dursleys as the 7 potters, and then at the burrow. and she wont be in the 7 potters chase cuz she looks like harry not hermy. so what scene to we think shes in?Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Yay! I can't wait to see the Deathly Hallows movies. Or Half-Blood Prince for that matter. I'm not really the patient type, but I'm sure I'm not the only one here, lol. I look forward to hearing more DH casting news too.Avatar Imageiheartrw says: wow! thats today. its hard to believe that they are filming the last book and im sitting in class :\Avatar Imageele0206 says: I'm sooo happy!! This is really exciting...Avatar Imageele0206 says: @ iheartrw: that's what I tought when I read the news! It's really hard to believe that I'm at home now, when Emma probably is filming some scene we would pay million of dollars to see now. Sorry for any grammar mistake.Avatar ImageGobbledygook says: Yay! aww I cant believe they're doing the last one already. :(Avatar ImageGobbledygook says: Yay! aww I cant believe they're doing the last one already. :(Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Good luck Emma. I'm soooooo excited and this is really cool but sad at the same time, bittersweet. *Tear, tear :( The begining of the end!Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: I can't wait to see more information about the film is taking shape. Where they divide the story will be very interesting. It's anyone's guess. Avatar Imagejonfrog says: i can't wait to see how the seventh movie turns out.
