Harry Potter Movies Being Filmed at Leavesden and Pinewood Studios


Mar 25, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

There is a new article online today regarding studios and the filming of the final Harry Potter movies. The Telegraph reports that legendary UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton “pushed full-year profits on
by 12pc to £5.9m pre-tax in 2008, benefiting from the filming of Slumdog
Millionaire, Mamma Mia!
and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.”

As readers will long recall, the bulk of filming on the Harry Potter films has taken place at Leavesden Studios. Only recently we at TLC first brought you these photos of a set under construction for the Deathly Hallows films at Pinewood. Today, the Telegraph article confirms that some filming for the final installment in the Harry Potter series will be done at Pinewood as well. Quotage:

Films scheduled at Pinewood Studios this year include the next installment of
Harry Potter, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.
The company warned that film revenues in 2009 will be strongly weighted to the
second half.

As a reminder, you can also see photos of the now permanent sets used for the Harry Potter films at Leavesden, such as Hagrid’s Hut, the Burrow, Privet drive and more in our galleries.

But with the Potter crew there these two movies will be massive. And I wouldn't be surprised if they used all kinds of new SFX for these... So I'm excited to the point of silliness!!!!Avatar ImageBookworm_Weasley says: Man I am so excited for this film (or these two films)!

I don't know what to be excited about!!Avatar ImageHermioneRon4ever says: I'm so excited! This movie looks really AMAZING! Avatar Imageharrypotterfan5324 says: i cant wait for DH....its gonna be AWESOME!!!!!! but so so sad...im gonna cry so hardAvatar Imagenorweigian_ridgeback says: I'm gonna be close butyet so far, as on Monday 30th March 09, I'll be filming as a contestant for The Weakest Link with Anne Robinson (if all you in the US can't remember her, a short ginger haired woman who tried to be mean, but got shouted back from your contestants.) I wanna see the set and The Weakest Link know I'm a huge Harry Potter fan so they'll probably use it against me if they really want to. All UK peeps, I don't know when it'll be aired but if I copy it onto my DVD Recorder I'm getting the next day (Cos it'll be my 21st Birthday) I'll sneak it onto Youtube for world to see before being shot down by the BBC and celedon.Avatar ImageErinM says: CoolAvatar ImageGarden State Geek says: The anticipation just keeps building. Avatar ImageZiadM says: Cool!Avatar Imageele0206 says: great!!!Avatar ImageSlytherin Princess101 says: Man I can't wait to see Half blooded prince... Dumbledore falling of the astronomy tower...heaven!!!!Avatar Imagered_7849 says: I want to see the movie, I wanna see it !!!!Avatar ImageFonty says: The reason for also using Pinewood is probably lack of space at Leavesden. DH it´s a big movie with a lot of settings and set construction takes time. They can shoot at Pinewood while they rebuild/redress something in Leavesden and so on. And they go on location for Shell Cottage. :)Avatar Imagelinnie95 says: Cool can't wait to see the last of the HP films!!!Avatar ImageKayWeasley says: Hagrid's Hut is a permanent set? Seemed different in every movie to me ...Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: I don't think I can ever get enough film news. Avatar Imagemissskye says: So many amazing movies have been filmed at Pinewood.
