Avatar ImageDolemite says: RIP DobbyAvatar Imageravensmith says: This is nice, but it is not how I imagined the scene looking. Avatar ImageMadameSuede says: Poor Dobby! :( That scene is going to break my heart when I see it on the screen...Avatar ImageNatalie says: And where's Ron?Avatar Imagerebel says: Once again they insert Hermione....Avatar ImageRachael says: Dobby is free. He is also loved.Avatar Imageoldenoughtoknowbetter says: I had a bit different scene in mind also... it'll be great to see it all put together!Avatar Imagetinagin says: *sobs* Oh man that is so sad.Avatar ImageHagrid 713 says: Ah, I know I'm going to lose it when they show that sceneAvatar Imageplacebowiz says: oh dobbyAvatar ImageLargeBlondDeathEater says: My GOD, so many complaints. People haven't even seen the real thing. For all we know, this is just a rehearsal. And it would make sense to have Hermione there at least since Hermione WAS ALMOST KILLED 5 minutes before!Avatar Imagepotterized1225 says: no way i'm going to make it through that without cyring, no way dobby <3Avatar ImageDanielaNC says: I agree with LargeBlondDeathEater. Hermione's supposed to have been tortured just a few minutes ago so she would be in no fit state to do that. Ithas to be some sort of rehearsal, since Evanna and Rupert aren’t there. By the way, WHERE is Rupert? Avatar ImageAJWC1 says: Ummm, I don't want to sound like a purist, especially, since I'm quite annoyed by the, "OMG, HBP is NOT a comedy!" rants. But, but,.....Hermione (who was supposed to be injured by Bella) holding Dobby....*looks off to the side* Ok, that's it, no more words for it. I'll be good now.... And the customary, "Where's Ron?" Cause, I just wanna see Ron/Rupert all of the time...hehehehe.Avatar ImageHalfBloodPrincess130 says: oh :(Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: whats the opposite of squee? [sad face]Avatar ImageWicked_Lady says: Rupert is there, not in the picture, but he's on set! He's the guy with the curly hair and beard. That picture is beautiful! I don't mind that Hermione is included, it makes it more painful in a way, beside in the book she does join them during the burial, why can't she be there now?Avatar Imagesalame says: That's cute. Poor Dobby. And i do wish we would see some pictures of Rupert, and more of Evanna.Avatar Imagelunaspec_gimmy says: This is gonna be so sad to watch.Avatar Imageandusir06 says: This picture makes me sad. I need cute kitteh pictures STAT!Avatar ImageSuzyLee says: So sad :(Avatar ImageL0rd_V says: I won't look at the picture in the link.. trying to preserve my own image of the scene till I MUST watch the movie :DAvatar Imagejenbabe705 says: Wow. That picture is so sad. Rest well Dobby.Avatar ImagePrisoner Of Azkaban says: This is going to be really sad. I didn't like Dobby at first but have grown to love him! Was sad when he was killed :(Avatar ImageMiss_Mimz says: R.I.P Dobby ♥ but I agree that its definitely not how I imagined the scene at all...and I know I'll awaken the haters, but man I really dont like Dan's hair...I've never been bothered before by it but...Avatar Imagemoglet says: I cried when I read the bit where Dobby died right through to the burial, especially the way Luna spoke so movingly (they had better include that!) I think it will be fine if Hermione is involved, she in particular was in terrible danger when rescued by brave little Dobby, it makes sense for the film to have her take part in this. However I do hope that they are planning to keep the bit with Hermione being tortured by Bellatrix as it really builds up the sense of menace, if they miss that out they will be making a huge mistake.Avatar ImageGred84 says: I'm hoping that's not the ACTUAL scene....because it's suppose to be night when they bury dobby, and it's suppose to be just harry at first, then ron and dean come to help and the rest of the group too. Hopefully they stay true to the book!Avatar ImageDanielBonnie28 says: i cried in that chapter so much!! i'm looking forward to cry again!! :DAvatar Imageherminjet says: RIP dobbyAvatar Imagebookworm1102 says: i think that will be the part of the movie where everyone in the audience starts crying im glad they are not cutting it out thoughAvatar ImageTschudiff says: Wow, the whole picture has a very sad atmosphere, RIP DobbyAvatar ImageProfessor Cassandra says: That is so sad... *sniffle*Avatar Imagejeannemcl says: Blah! Blah! Blah! I am so sick and tired of the complaints from everyone. The movie is NOT the book. How many times does that need to be said? If you don't like what you see, stay home and stop whining!!!!! Avatar Imagej@m says: What the heck is Hermione doing there? She should be inside the house recovering from Bella's torture. Steve Kloves strikes again, yet another scene ruined!Avatar ImagegaylebathanHP says: aaaawwee.. you know, i criend in this part of the book.. so sad!Avatar ImageDrome says: Awwww. :(Avatar ImagegaylebathanHP says: R.I.P dobby! ' Here Lies Dobby, A Free Elf...'Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: Wow i saw this totally different and in the dark darkness slowly breaking into dawn...Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: Wow i saw this totally different and in the dark darkness slowly breaking into dawn...Avatar Imagemoglet says: Well yes it is supposed to be night, but in fact it may not work well for the film because things would be rather indistinct and you really do need to see this for it to have impact, mind you they may just be rehearsing and they ould perhaps film it at dusk or dawn, the main thing is that the scene has the emotional impact of the book. By the way if you are going to be a purist it should be taking place in March! lolAvatar ImageMach1982 says: While dobby death is a sad moment, it didn’t make me cry, I nearly cried when Harry is in Forest and turns to his Mother and ask if she will stay with him. As others said the movie is not the book, and I think it nice that Hermione there, maybe in movie it the next day or they’ll make it night in post.Avatar Imagechochang1980 says: If I remember correctly, Hermione was at the gravesite when they buried Dobby in the book. I remember Harry asking how she was doing and that she was wonderful coming up with that story when Bellatrix was torturing her. She wasn't holding Dobby, but she was there.Avatar ImageAllstar says: I think it's going to look cinematically breathtaking, whether it's completely canon or not. Avatar ImageAlatarielle says: awww, dobby!! I'm so glad they arent cutting the scene! also people, relax. look at the other pics they have on walesonline and you'll see that the photos arent screenshots. This will look different in the movie. And just because it's filmed during the day doesnt mean it's going to be daytime in the movie.Avatar ImageDlcohm7 says: Ok, tear in eye. I was thinking in my head first what I saw when I read it, this isn't it! Wasn't there a tree? and it is suppose to be Harry only.A personal thing.AH! why must they keep messing it up? this is the last one. Let's hope the story around this isn't screwed up.Hope it's still great.I'm still going to ball my eyes out. I am now just seeing this.Avatar Imageericaeeks says: aww..The look on Harry's face is so sad.. I can't wait till this comes out in theaters. I wonder if they're going to make it a night scene when they edit the film.Avatar Imagelily11 says: oh, poor Dobby :(Avatar Imageginnyrose says: oh this make me so sad it made me cry bless dobby he was a good house elf now you are free RIPAvatar ImageBoyWithALightningScar says: Wow, they're really filming that right now! It still amazes me that the last movie is being made at this moment.Avatar Imageskiving snackboxes says: I'm so excited for this, I cried so hard at this part during the book, and I know the movie will make me cry just as hard. And don't forget folks, they can do a lot of editing during post production, they may make it dusk, or they may not.The movie is NEVER going to be exactly the same as the book, as much as we all wish it were. Avatar Imageshellscotie says: Isn't she suppose to be carried because of all that's happened in MM?Avatar ImageGryffindorGal87 says: Are they not going to have Dean & Ron help him dig the grave?Avatar Imagekismatt says: I'm still wondering....shouldn't this be a night shot? Just sayin'....Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: awww!! the photos on the wales online website where sooooo nice! helena looks amazing as hermione/bellatrix hehe!!Avatar Imagepunkedup88 says: no! Dobby.... wait why is Hermione there?Avatar ImageNiphai says: It's just so sad to see... And what is 'Harry' wearing O.oAvatar Imageloony_slytherin says: oh- oh- oh- :,( I'm going to lose it at this sceneAvatar Imageweasleywannabe1997 says: Hey everybody, how about some cheese with that whine??? Come on, it looks like a rehearsal,... or, if not, they are compacting a few interactions into a brisker scene. If they filmed everything exactly as written in the book it would be War and Peace for crying out loud -- an 8 hour long mini series, not a two part film. It cannot possibly be exactly as in the books, I'm just grateful that they kept Dobby in at all, and that the scene is included. It revealed so much about Harry.Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: isnt it meant to be dusk in the book?? when i was reading DH i kept on saying oh no!! ..... just died!! and when i said oh no!!! dobby just died!! and my mum was like.. what!!!????!!!!!! and my mum got a tear-ful phone call from my sister at 2am. she wasnt v happy. and she said 2 my sister, i kno, i kno!! bea told me!! when i read DH i got to the part when dobby died and it was getting dark in the summer so there were beautiful lights and in my mind it was really similar.... but at the seaside. RIP Dobby, the Free House-Elf BTW re-reading Deathly Hallows and nearly at that part. boohooooooo!Avatar ImageR-for-H says: Oh... Isn't Hermione meant to be really hurt?Avatar Imageginnywp says: omg im soooo excited!! i cant wait Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: Where is Ron?Avatar Imagegrey_nightshirt says: **sobs**Avatar Imagegaladriel12 says: Don't worry people. Ron will be included. Rupert is on the set as we could see by pics posted on other sites (ICM, Occlumencia). But as usual TLC ignores Rupert so.... *shrugs*Avatar ImageRita_Dumbledore94 says: Oh Dobby *-* :-(Avatar Imagebudgie says: Wonderful photos.Avatar Imagehopieg says: i will cry like a little baby. the next three movies are going to do me inAvatar Imagekbicprez says: I was sobbing so much when Dobby died I had to put the book down. It was heart-breaking! I hope I can hold it together in the theater.Avatar ImageHorcruxalej says: Poor little dobby!! My imagination made it look different but i think this looks nice to and when they have added all the special effects it sure it will look awesome.Avatar Imagekbicprez says: I understand people get excited about these photographs. I do too. But not seeing a character in a photograph doesn't mean he/she will not be in the actual movie scene. Avatar Imagesrt2gryffndr says: I can't wait to see this.. To me.. this was one of the most heartbreaking parts of the book.Avatar ImageCool Grandma2 says: At least we know they are going to have Dobby in the movie.Avatar Imagegryffindorstudent2290 says: All of this makes me really excited for Deathly Hallows, for a minuet I forgot that we haven't seen Half-Blood Prince yet, lol. I don't really mind Hermione being present for Dobby's burial. I look at it as a nod to her workings with S.P.E.W.Avatar Imagemollywobbles23 says: >:| What is Hermione doing there? Now, if she were there and we saw Luna and Ron too, that'd be fine b/c they all do eventually gather around and Ron and Dean help Harry dig the grave. I'm kind of ticked. Avatar ImageHermione_Granger1987 says: Poor Dobby... I am going to cry when I see this... Where is Ron?Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: heya again!Avatar ImageAutumnWizard says: Poor Dobby!!Avatar Imageccking says: that's a shame.Avatar ImageCellar Door says: Ok, same thing here: What IS UP WITH HERMIONE HOLDING DOBBY'S BODY?! I won't say anything else. I just hope the movie follows the book closely, especially in the most important scenes. Please, please, no random stuff added.Avatar Imagecrookshanks_luver says: I agree with those that are concerned that Hermione is the one holding Dobby in this scene. I'm hoping they don't cut out her torture scene. That's such a huge part of the book! Avatar ImageWoodette says: Yeah where are Ron and Dean???Avatar ImagePureblood-Slytherin says: i'm w/ everyone else.. Why is Hermione holding Dobby's body???? she's suppose to be weak after almost being killed.. she's suppose to have someone hold her for support since she can barely move.. i'm goin' to cry so much when i see this scene.. lol.. Avatar ImageKayla87 says: I hope it was a rehearsal..Was anyone picturing it to be night time?Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: Rest in peace, Dobby. I actually began to cry as soon as I saw that picture.Avatar ImageBre Sartain says: I can't wait to see how this unfolds.Avatar ImageHermioneWwannabe says: remember that they still have to edit it through the comp - these are raw pictures.. no effects or lighting visuals really at hopefully the tone and mood will be a bit more effected by color. I'm going to stop looking at all the spoilers or when i go to see the movie i'm going to know the entire playout of ever scene already lol!Avatar Imagedelafayette says: I always imagined a cottage on the edge of the beach with a very large shade tree and a grass lawn inside a stone wall fence. Harry diggs a grave under the shade tree and uses a stone that has tumbled off the wall as a grave stone. In the back ground over the wall you would see the beach and ocean.Avatar ImageTegaaan says: hmm not sure about hermione holding dobby...but if you look closely on her neck there seems to be a red maybe the torture scene is still there..hmm i could be completely wrong but just thought i would say haha.Avatar Imageomgitslouise says: I hope this scene is well done, and I hope it makes the whole audience cry. But because it's good, not because it's awful :]Avatar Imagemoglet says: Grief stricken Hermione indeed, it looks very real, Emma seems to be capturing this extremely well. I agree Tegaaan about the red mark on her neck, I think it could probably be the mark from the knife which Bellatrix holds to Hermione's neck until Dobby makes the chandelier drop onto the table at which point Bellatrix has to release Hermione and then of course she throws the knife at Dobby as they disapparate. Avatar Imageonespeedonly says: (bows head...) Thank you, Dobby.Avatar Imagehufflepuff_86 says: Wow, make me cry already. I thought this was one of the most touching scenes in the book.Avatar Imageonespeedonly says: For all those not liking Hermione holding Dobby, you still have hope this scene will end up on the editing room floor! Ha!Avatar ImageEnricoDc says: How can they show the great sadness over Hermione in Dobby's death? 1st, Hermione never met Dobby in the previous films, 2nd, The movie doesn't include the S.P.E.W. movement founded by Hermione....Avatar Imageahs_12505 says: I always imagines it being dusk during the burial. But this is still great to see.Avatar Imagefuchsiarascal says: Aww poor Dobby! And Harry looks appropriately so sad.Avatar Imagemoglet says: I think that as Dobby has just saved them all and dies doing it we do not need any additional reasons for the grief, it is a highly charged situation, and for all we know he may appear earlier in the film to give it a bit more context.Avatar Imagelatecomer says: It could still be night in the film. Wouldn't it makes sense for them to rehearse in daylight first?Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: RIP Dobby we love you!Avatar ImageAutumnmoon says: Wow, that look on Emma/Hermione's face is gut-wrenching. I was torn up when I read about Dobby's death, but seeing on screen is going to make it seem so much more real, and so much sadder.Avatar ImageWitByndMsr says: Ahhh, so sad!!! I know I'm going to cry.Avatar ImageLady of the Lake says: Photos look good. I can't wait to see the whole thing. Avatar ImageRobbie Rowe says: So... very... sad.Avatar ImageLady of the Lake says: But, yeah...where's Ron?Avatar ImageHarryIsAHunk84 says: I always thought he would be a bigger bundle than that, but oh well. I'm just glad they're putting that scene in, and we know that scene will be in DH part 1!Avatar ImageaaTmaHira says: In Broad daylight? I ask you, what is the height of doing such a blisterious thing?
The scene is such a delicate one. I'm not sure I'm gonna hold myself up.
I just hope this really is rehearsal...
Avatar Imageavrenim says: i'm hoping it is just a rehearsal, because this is supposed to be a harry moment, digging dobby's grave and grieving. Avatar Imagemoglet says: Someone commented that "we know this is in part 1" but I don't think that we can assume this as Toby Jones has said he was going to be filming for both parts, so I would say this is definitely going to be in part 2.Avatar Imagejoeys_mommy says: YAY! That means they'll def include the Ron/Hermione Kiss!Avatar ImageAbiDumbledore says: Poor dobby =( I don't wanna watch him die, reading it was awful.Avatar Imagevicky granger says: Great pictures! Although for some odd reason, I always imagined the scene at night, or twilight ... Avatar Imagemiss molly says: Oh and there is a shot with Ruppert and Emma while Emma has dobby in here arms in the sheet going to the grave- so see Ruppert is there with themAvatar ImageMJLeakyCon says: I guess it doesn't matter to me how the film portrays this event. The books are the book, the films are the films. I think they are both so wonderful because they are separate entities. However they show the death of Dobby doesn't change the core event. Dobby dies. It will be terribly sad, no matter who is or is not at Harry's side when it happens. I guess I just can't believe people are still up-in-arms about the fact that the moviemakers changes things. Haven't we been over this for, I don't know, 10 years? ;)Avatar Imageshellybasson says: Somehow I imagined it either at sunset or sunrise... One of my all-time favourite scenes. Avatar ImageScottMan says: I saw it differently as well, with Shell Cottage in the background, sun setting, Harry in his usual dark blue hoodie, by himself, near a big oak tree. But seeing it as they had it, different as it is, really gave life to it. I love the wind, Harry bent down and intent on his task, Hermione with him yet strangely apart. Wow. My heart skipped a beat from that very simple yet elegant photo.Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: Exactly, it's not healthy being so picky people! You're going to have high blood pressure the rest of your life. Haha. This is what ALL movies do. It would do you well to accept that the movies are not supposed to be the books put on screen, they are only supposed to be based on the books. The reason I fell in love with Harry Potter isn't because of every insignificant detail to the scene, it's about the heart and the emotions you feel when reading or watching a scene, and about making you think, changing you as a person.Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: I thought Hermione is supposed to be wounded from being tortured by Bellatrix?Avatar ImageHarryRichardsPotter says: i really not sensing that theres a body inside that cloth! Atleast we DEFFO know that dobby is in this film. I mean we knew already but now we DEFFY know!Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: Plus I imagined this taking place at night!Avatar ImageStarlysh says: I'm getting sad alreadyAvatar Imagebookmonster79 says: Ok, so how Hermione is able to carry Dobby down to his grave-site after just being tortured by Bellatrix, I don't know. Go movie people!Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: I will be upset if Hermione's torture scen isn't in the film! That is such a big part and the driving force for Ron and Harry to get out of the dungeon!Avatar ImageDeliaDee says: I went off on this sort of thing several times in the comments regarding the possible insertion of Rita in the movie. Typical Kloves. Change everything and put Hermione center stage even when it makes no sense. I swear he has no respect for these books. I understand that movies and books will never - and can never - be the same. I'm totally fine with that. But Kloves makes changes that make no sense whatsoever and detract from the story. Ooh, he makes me mad!Avatar ImageCarol Carvalho says: Oh.... ok! for the first time I really don't wanna see the pictures..... weird. Avatar ImageCarol Carvalho says: Oh.... ok! for the first time I really don't wanna see the pictures..... weird. Avatar Imagenomisbrowning says: Is that man with the curly hair and beard supposed to be Ron disguised as the death eater before they go to Gringotts?Avatar Imageselene21 says: I don't like this where's Ron?? and why is Hermione there?? isn't she suppose to be injured please don't ruin DHAvatar Imagewandmastercalum says: *cries* I loved him.Avatar Imagesunshine123 says: coolio, we got some good stuff today. omg can't believe thats dobbies grave sooo sad. and btw those guys saying wheres Ron? there is actually a picture of Ron/Rupert by the grave next to Hermione/Emma in the link in the update, but i do agree with peoples Hermiones comments, she's meant to be unstable on her feet as she has just been tourtured. I don't usually nit pick at the films because i understand it's a different medium but come on Hermiones touture is a big part of the scene before shell cottage, oh well we will see the finshed scene in like 2 years hehe soooo....i just look forward to the rest of the filming ahhh we ciuld get some Bill tomorrowAvatar ImageHagrid 713 says: not the way I pictured it either - looks pretty windy!Avatar Imagekerosenestar says: Aw! I am totally crying at that part. Rest in Peace, little guy.Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: Are we allowed to post other sites on her? I found a photo of Ron with Hermione as she is carring Dobby's body and they look really upset. There's one where she is holding a Dobby model and Rupert and Dan are laughing.Avatar Imagefelixfelicis11 says: Ahhh! I'm going to cry during this part :(Avatar Imagemaxpower says: I'm willing to bet this is a rehearsal; maybe so they can set the marks. I always pictured this scene at night however. Seriously though I'm glad they are including this scene, day or night. It's the only part in any of the books that made me tear up a bit. Avatar ImageVeganMudblood says: What a sad picture...Dobby looks so much smaller than I imagined. Poor Dobby. :(Avatar Imagesirius17 says: this is sadAvatar ImageDolphingirl500 says: This is pretty sad, but I thought this scene took place at night? Avatar ImageArthur22 says: that is going to be a hard scene to watchAvatar ImageGarden State Geek says: Heart-breaking. Avatar Imageiconshero says: Yeah.....thats not how i pictured it, it looks like the middle of the day and Hermione looks just fine for haveing been tortured.....Avatar ImageAgrippa1 says: I don't care if it's not exactly as written in the book - the look on Harry's face as he digs the grave is right, and that means they're doing the scene with the heart that Dobby deserves.Avatar ImageMatea says: yes,I'm also a little confused. why Hermione? maybe they like to see Emma crying so they inserted her.and I thought its going to be during changes..I don't like it..I want DH exactly the same as the book!Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: Poor dobby :-(Avatar ImageWeird One says: Have to remember to bring a box of tissue with me for the last two films. I was a wreck reading the book.....sob!Avatar ImageDeliaDee says: The thing is, I'm afraid this is going to turn into what happened to Sirius' death. That was such a traumatic scene for me in OotP. I STILL cry when I read it. But the movie distorted it so much it was completely anticlimactic. All I could think was "Was that it?" And Dobby's death was just as traumatic for me if now more. It's clear that they're going to change it up and I fear for the end result. I mean, what about Luna's eulogy? And, come on, it would NOT be the same if Hermione does it. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I'm afraid. I'm very afraid.Avatar Imagetubaturtle says: I have a theory as to why Hermione's there, but not Dean, Fleur, Bill, etc. Perhaps this is a practice shoot and Emma's just standing in for some of the other actors? After all, this IS only the second day of shooting this scene. I'm probably wrong, but it's just a theory.Avatar ImagePineApple says: Day time???Avatar Imagehuffledor says: Dobby, Now you are freeAvatar ImageBeAchL0veEr05 says: I have a few thoughts: 1. verryy sad scene, I'm actually sad now. 2. I just wish they weren't wearing model-like Muggle clothes, it would make the scene somehow more real. 3. I'm probably gonna cry when I see this!Avatar Imagehuffledor says: Dobby, Now you are freeAvatar Imagesnunkiebrian says: I'm guessing they are going to CGI the dark sky in... it was dark wasn't it? or did i just picture that in my head? Avatar Imagesnunkiebrian says: Fantastic that they are keeping it in though... poor dobby. Avatar ImageLadyChristiane says: That wasn't like I imagined at ALL! I imagined a night or dark afternoon with stars and a small breeze from the sea..with a spectacular view of course... And Hermione! She's not suposed to be there! She nearly got killed at the Malfoys! She looks perfectly all right on the photo... When Dobby died it was the only time I really cried during the book..and I cry not easily... The image inside my head is ruined! Ahh!! Avatar ImageCatherine says: oh! thats so sad!!! those pics are amazing though! xAvatar Imagehuffledor says: Dobby, Now you are freeAvatar ImagemOOn-stArs-sUn says: Oh my goodness, it may not be the way I imagined the scene, but it looks extremely sad! I'm going to cry when I watch this, tears are threatening to flow over right now. :(Avatar ImageWicked_Lady says: If you guys stop fretting over Hermione being there, you can see that she has a knife cut on her throat. The torture scene will be there. Also if you look at all the pictures you can see that Rupert IS there, he's in disguise with the curly hair and beard. I have no problem with Hermione being there, like I said before Hermione does show up when Harry is burying Dobby. Like many have said already, this does look like rehearsals so, just wait what else surfaces over the rest of the week to see if there are any night shots or if anything changes. Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: Aw so sad :( I don't want to sound like I'm complaining or anything ... but isn't it supposed to be nighttime and isn't Harry supposed to bury Dobby alone? And if Hermione is there ... why not Ron? (Okay I'm done with "complaining") Nice pictures though =) Rupert looks good like always. Haha.Avatar ImageLupa says: Hmm ... for the time being I am just going to assume that scene is still really raw and will be subject to many changes. On another note: I can't believe we haven't even seen the 6th movie yet, but are already getting so much stuff from the 7th. o_OAvatar ImageHPNAIV says: Oh nevermind, I see Rupert next to Emma now. =]Avatar Imageweasleyalltheway says: :( dobby :( aww... looks perfect though. meangin SAD.and in that second picture, is that a cut on her kneck ( as it should be) or do you think its just her hair???Avatar Imagehopkinsdancr22 says: wow this really annoys meAvatar ImageBriannaWazHere says: im gonna cry during this scene, im already ready for it, i cried when cedric died in the movie- when his father was crying over his dead body, i didn't cry when sirius died in the movie, it went by really fast, but i am totally gonna cry for dobby, i cried like a crazy baby when i read the book. Avatar Imagejonfrog says: i always thought it was a little darker or greyerAvatar ImageOldZeke says: Lets wait till we see the scene in the movie. Plus we only have a few pics to judge it by. Perhaps when they shot the actual scene it will be nite. + they will include more actors edit in more scenery, effects Ect. I am happy they are going to include this very tragic scene. After we see this scene in the movie then we can praise or complain.Avatar Imageizziewitch says: I am just so glad they are actually keeping the scene in the movie, even tho I'll be crying like crazy watching it. But, okay, as long as everyone's complaining: Harry/Dan isn't holding the shovel the way you really would if you were digging, your hand would be on the handle not below it, so maybe this is just rehearsal. And Dan looks a bit scruffy (appropriate) with a bit of a shadow on his face, as he did when he was in Equus, but he looks better without a beard/mustache. I'm sure they will make this evening when they work on the film after the fact.Avatar ImageKatetheKeeper says: I cried when I saw the pictures, I'm going to be wailing in the theatre! T_T Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: lol my reaction to first seen this?! OH MY GOSH!! in like.. a high pitched yelling noise that would make dobby proud.Avatar Imagekraamerxmich says: Wow....strange to see Rupert and Dan with a bit of stubble....lmao...i still see them as the little kids from movie 1... haha ^_^...but still...i mean..they are older in that book...Avatar Imagekraamerxmich says: ...Wait...WHY IS BELLATRIX THERE? Imagehp29 says: I'm going to cry. I know it. Poor Dobby. I'm going to wait until i see it, i hope they do it well, but at least they kept it in.

Avatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: squeeeeeee!Avatar ImageSirius_Craic says: it's day time? Wasn't it night in the book?Avatar Imageiamnotworriedharry says: I got choked up just thinking about the scene when I read this. I don't mind Hermione being there, but I did really love the idea of the solitary scene of Harry digging the grave, mourning and gaining resolve about what he needs to do. It was such a great scene in the book. My guess is having her there allows him to voice the things he is thinking in the book. Avatar ImageFonty says: And again, these pictures give us no sense of what actually happened or a sequence of events as they happened. Just snapshots of yet another day on a HP location. And (of course) a lot of people are complaining, because they dare to shoot in daylight! They are shooting on 35mm film, which needs light, a lot of light. They can still make it a darker or a night scene later in colour timing / digital grading. I am totally happy that they are doing so many location shoots, instead of filming everything on a soundstage or the Leavesden backlot. Even though I am glad to see so many pictures of behind the scenes, it is also quite spoiling some of the movies years before they come out.Avatar ImageVerity Weasley says: RIP DobbyAvatar Imagekayzz says: I'm kinda sad that Hermione's not on a couch in Shell Cottage with Ron whispering sweet things to her in her unconscious state. But anyway. Avatar ImageWingardium Leviosa says: Oh Dobby. :-( The scene looks really different, though. Avatar ImageKimberlyZ says: poor dobby :'(Avatar Imagedecarus says: They can change the scene to be nighttime in post production. I think Hermione was tortured but not stabbed or anything. She was wobbly. We don't yet know enough to know whether Harry dug the grave by himself and then Hermione and Ron come up to him after for the burial, just like in the book. I don't think this is a rehearsal at all. I think this is the real thing. The picture of Ron with the curly hair and the beard is not in the same scene as Dobby's death. That is Harry, Ron, Bellatrix/Hermione, and Griphook disapparating to the bank. It is different in the book because we can be inside Harry's head. We can hear his thoughts. They have to do it differently by having Harry discuss what he is thinking. I like all the pictures. Avatar Imagehermy65 says: oh my gosh!! those photos are so sad!!Avatar Imagefresh-pickled toad says: OMG this makes me soo sad...its almost all over.. I cant believe they have filmed this part =(Avatar ImageKennedyJames says: in the book she came out with Ron He just might be out of the shot right now Or this could be a rehearsal. It looks fine to me I can't wait! <3Avatar Imagesueml says: Note to self: enjoy pictures, stop reading comments (p.s. - Ron's in the scene, you can see him in some of the other pictures standing with Hermione. And, someone of course bashed Dan's hair - looks fine to me).Avatar ImagewrockfangirlSQUEE says: :(((Avatar ImageLulaL says: (To quote my pal Aberforth) I always liked that elf.Avatar Imagekbicprez says: @sueml, I'm with you. Great pictures all around. I'm very excited about DH!Avatar ImageJaymie Brooks says: All of these book purists are starting to get under my nerves. Are you guys already forgetting the fact that we're lucky we're getting a funeral for Dobby AT ALL? I was 100% prepared for them to kill Kreacher off instead, so I don't care what they do to this scene now. I'm just thankful that we're GETTING it. On an unrelated note, ew at Dan and Rupert's stubble. Hopefully they're just practicing right now. It'll be weird to see them like that in the movie.Avatar Imagebecmajec says: Looks pretty cool but yeah where is ron, shouldn't he be helping dig the hole/helping hermione who meant to be almost too weak to stand let alone hold dobby?Avatar Imagebecmajec says: oh hai bellatrix!Avatar Imagebecmajec says: ok so woops ron is there. good. Avatar Imagebrentbrehony says: Love you dobbyAvatar Imageavrenim says: yay more photos! glad to see ron's there :D and it's so awesome to see helena bonham carter just hanging out with rupert and dan. Avatar Imageladydars says: Poor Dobby! To be honest I forgot about that part of the story... perhaps I blocked it out! :-(Avatar Imageavrenim says: and to everyone making remarks about dan and rupert's stubble - of course they have stubble! do you think harry and ron care about shaving when they're hiding in the woods from snatchers and death eaters, meanwhile thinking of a plan to destroy horcruxes? i don't think so.Avatar Imagestarlesswinter says: Look at Emma's face! Ugh.... She can't emote with any true feeling to save her has always felt so staged and overdone.Avatar ImageScipio Aziatus says: For just being tortured, Hermione looks pretty good. These are greats pics though. It's gonna be a painfull scene in the film. Avatar Imagegeneliz says: one of my favorite scenes because it's just so powerful and evokes such emotion... aww, RIP dobby<333333Avatar Imagesevered_lies says: Weird seeing Dobby's killer at his funeral! Avatar Imagefloridianhp says: poor dobby!Avatar Imageugurbocegi says: Dobby! :-( :Sigh: Pictures are great! Thank you. :-)Avatar Imagemewthree says: just read that ron stays with bill over xmas. why is hermione so mean with him. i can't wait to see the cottage in the film.Avatar Imageheartless_wench says: You know, one picture is approximately 1/800th (or less) of a SECOND in time, captured on film. I love it... from 1/800th of a second, folks are already freaking out: "OMG, Rons not there, Dean not there, Luna's not there, it's all Harry and Hrmione, she steals the show, she should be on her death bed, she shouldnt be holding Dobby...". LOL... Its 1/800th of a second, folks. You have no idea who's there or who's not. Plus, they will most likely make it darker in post, so it looks like dusk, but isnt as expensive to film. I'll bet that Herms still gets tortured, but not as badly as in the book. Ron will help her in the escape, but she will recover enough to help with the burial. But she definitely IS at the burial in the book.Avatar ImagePineappleCrush says: Seeing all these pictures is really interesting because we really have NO idea about what's REALLY going on. Just like heartless_wench said, we're seeing 1/800th of a second in time captured in these pictures. They may not have even been filming at all; they may just be doing rehearsals. Hermione was definitely at the burial in the book, and judging by the time of day that they're out there (if they truly are filming during those pictures), the burial isn't taking place in the middle of the night/close to twilight, so perhaps they tweaked the story a bit. Not like they haven't done that before :P The book is the book, the movie is the movie. I would have thought this was established by now seeing as there are already 5 movies out, none of which stayed as close to the book as most of us hoped they would. The movies need to be appreciated on their own accord :) I actually find it interesting that they have a Dobby doll, that's kinda cool :) Thanks for the pictures!!!Avatar ImageThio says: @heartless_wench, I agree! Too early to be complaining. Editing makes one heck of a difference! But.... as for one picture being 1/800 of a second? That is kind of... wrong, isn't it? We don't get 800 pictures in one second of screening. It's more like 24 to 30... can't really remember it now. I also saw a picture of Bellatrix, Harry and another men. That seems to be they preparing themselves to the Gringotts part. Hermione transformed into Bellatrix and is modifying Ron. Awesome.Avatar Imagephantomdave79 says: Wow, We have gotten so much already and they aren't even half way through filming yet!Avatar Imageboona says: didn't see it here on leaky but there are gorgeous close up picks of emma on other websites, not sure if i can post the site's name here though.Avatar Imagemouse68 says: Clearly the people complaining about it being shot in the daytime haven't heard of the term "day for night". It's a very old film technique used to film night scenes during the day as night shoots are expensive and have some technical challenges as someone mentioned earlier. People really need to stop freaking out over this stuff. All we are seeing are still shots from the location, we aren't seeing exactly what they are capturing on film, or how they intend to deal with the scenes on post production. This early judgement on a film before it is completed, and going by photographs taken by people not involved in production, is a fool's game.Avatar Imageanimalz10 says: *tear* this is going to be sad to watchAvatar Imagethe_spectacle says: Emma's coat looks great. And oh yes sad about Dobby too.Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: really interesting pics..they're greatAvatar Imageweasleywannabe1997 says: The complaints here are are increasingly embarassing. Thanks to those who, like heartless_wench, have attempted reality checks. Ease up, people. They aren't necessarily in full makeup and/or costume. It might just be a rehearsal. Any injuries to Hermione may be CGI'd in later. I am going back to the section in book 7 after Hermione is crucio'ed -- seems to me she is a pretty tough cookie and recovered rather well. Let's all just try and give this the benefit of the doubt, eh??? It may just be amazing. I agree with al who are just glad this poignant scene will even be in the movie.Avatar ImagePompleMoose says: AHH! That's so sad! I imagined it to be at night.. or like.. Sunrise.. But this is good, too.Avatar Imagemollywobble says: Thio, heartless_wench is referring to the shutter speed of the still camera not the rates per second of a movie. I'm kind of surprised people are complaining about rehearsals. REHEARSALS people. I'm sure when they actually film the scene every actor will have scars and bloody lips. I'm sure if Yates wants it to be night, they'll shoot it as a day-for-night scene like mouse68 said. I think it's cool that we've seen so many behind the scenes images this early in filming. We NEVER get to see this (unless 800 pictures of Hagrid's hut really floats your boat). You guys can have your opinion about how you think things should look, but try to enjoy the process in the mean time. Because after they've wrapped up filming, we will never have an opportunity like this again. Avatar Imageblackhair says: excellentAvatar ImageGeorgesHufflepuff says: I know this scene is going to make me cry during the movie, but that picture with Emma holding the Dobby doll and everyone laughing made me crack up!Avatar Imageavrenegade says: I thought that there was going to be a lot more people and i didnt think it would be that windy.Avatar ImageChristy says: I hope they're shooting day for night. I pictured this happening at night...Avatar Imageholey says: I think the photos are great! People need to stress less! Wait until the movie is actually out before you comment on what has been changed from the book.Avatar Imagefan.numero1 says: i am soo gonna cry when dobby dies!! :(Avatar ImageKC Nox says: Poor Dobby! I cry every time I read that part of the book. Looks like it is going to be just as sad in the movie.Avatar ImageHROAR Mudblood Proud says: Grief-stricken, maybe, but recently tortured? No. Avatar ImageeiVega says: Wow. This is powerful. We're seeing so much more than we ever have before. I wonder how this will impact our reception of the final product. It is a lot brighter than I expected but I know this isn't the real shot. There is still so much work to do. They can still play with the lighting and filters and a bunch of other visual effects and compositing. This will be interesting to see how it develops.Avatar Imagealegria35 says: it's a very sad scene... when i read the book alone, i cried... when i listened to the audio book the first time, i cried.. i sure will cry when i watch this scene in the movie... Avatar Imageismarelde13 says: I cried when Dobby died . . . I hope they can do justice to that scene in the movie. :'( Avatar Imagevandy says: I think they are shooting in the morning so that they can add special effects later to make it a night scene.. I've seen many movies doing that...Avatar Imageseachellie4 says: aw, I <3 DobbyAvatar Imagebadger666 says: Oh, poor Dobby. Avatar ImageiLoveDolores says: that is going to be such an emotional moment - but yeah, not quite what i imagined when i read it =DAvatar Imagemouse68 says: For those saying it isn't quite what they imagined you need to remember a couple of things. First, as quite a few of us have pointed out, you are not seeing the finished product, you are seeing the scene from the perspective of people not involved in the production, photographing from some distance away, not to mention that some of this appears to be rehearsals. There is also the fact that there may be a lot of post production related to these scenes that can change the look entirely. Secondly, whenever you read a book, what you imagine a scene or a character to be from what is written in the book, could look completely different to what another person who is reading the book comes up with in our imagination. That's the great thing about reading, we all have our own imagination. However when a book is filmed, we are seeing the imagination of a particular group of people on screen, and that is not always going to match what is in our own imagination. They can see inside each of our heads and use our imaginations. People bring their own points of view, not to mention ingrown prejudices, when they see a character in their head and the filmmakers are not going to match millions of people's individual imaginations all they can do is capture the spirit of the character as best they can.Avatar Imagemouse68 says: That should have read they can't see inside each of our heads and use our imaginations!Avatar ImageKimberlyZ says: I think I need to stop looking at these photos of filming because it is quenching my thirst for HBP, but once that is over how am I supposed to survive the wait for DH 1?Avatar Imagegoodenough says: RIP Dobby! This sceen is going to be hard to watch. Hermione is suppoed to be hurt, I hope this dosn't mean that they are altering the malfoy manner sceen. and where are Fleur, Luna and Dean? Bill looks a bit weird I think, he's suppoed to have a poiny tale. Helena Bonham Carter looks fantastic, thought I can't wait to see her in this movie. I hope Emmas not going to wear those sunglases in the film, they are not very Hermione. Oh and I love Rupers little beard :)Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: I cried sooooo much when I read this. I know I'm going to cry in the film :*( R.I.P Dobby. Avatar Imagepromote_elfish_welfare says: Oh Dobby... :( Avatar ImageTheGoldenSeeker says: The pictures make me sooo sad, I almost cried when I saw them for the first time!! I won't be able to make it trough that scene without crying. . . I'll have to get myself some tissues. . . The scene is just soooo sad! :( Avatar ImageKara000 says: Aww thes photos are heart breaking. Avatar ImageKara000 says: Aww thes photos are heart breaking. Avatar ImageSlytherin Princess101 says: So sad, even if I am not a fan of Dobby!Avatar ImageErinM says: Same comment as many; not how I pictured it. But don't forget all, these are just photos. Lets not forget about the magic created in the computer/graphic areas of film developing. We're a long way away from seeing what it will really look like on the screen.Avatar ImageKara000 says: This scene will be perfect no matter what as long as they include 'Harry... Potter..."Avatar Imagesplinch says: wasn't it night time when all this happened? thats at least how i always had it in my head.Avatar Imagedeath_eater9994 says: ugh...I wish I was there...Avatar ImageThio says: mollywobble, Oh! Ok! I see. I thought heartless_wench was saying something like "guys! chill out! This is only 1/800 of a second of the movie". Now everything in my life makes sense again! Thanks!! Sorry heartless_wench. Turns out I was kind of wrong. =9 And yes. I'm torn between being spoiled or not. But this will be the last chance we will have of seeing production shots. After that, it's over. So I think I prefer to see and be slightly spoiled, but talk about it with everybody. Enjoy this last movie as much as one can.Avatar Imageboona says: nice, I see that they have gotten the close ups of the beautiful emma watson, and is it just me or does ron look a bit older here (a little 'stache and all)Avatar ImageSnapesSilverDoe says: I'm sure it will all be goodAvatar Imagenoe_lover_42 says: Awwww..... that is going to be the saddest moment ever!! Slytherin FTC! Avatar ImageNundu says: How funny that 'Belatrix' is taking snaps of Dan and Rupert with her little pink digital camera (photo 7 in the TLC galleries). Even she's a fan gurl!Avatar Imagecghambright says: This is sad!! I'm sure it's going to so much more dramatic once they add in all the special effects! I can't believe they're FILMING THIS!!!!!!Avatar Imagecghambright says: This is such a beautiful location!! I bet they LOVE filming there!! It looks so peaceful! :DAvatar Imagecghambright says: OMG!! THe picture of the crew member holding Dobby is sooooo Depressing!!!! It gives me chills!! Avatar Imagemcleod27 says: Dobby will be missed. I wish they would've put him in some of the other films, not just CoS. He was one of my favorite characters from the books. RIPAvatar ImageLEW says: Even though someone should have consulted a geologist before deciding to dig a grave on a dune, I'm very glad that they're including this scene! So sad yes necessary.Avatar ImageWhisperwing says: Ninth picture in that album -- is Rupert sporting a bit of stubble?!Avatar Imagehermione467 says: I started tearing up while looking at the picture because I know how sad that scene will be:( poor Dobby....Avatar Imageblackhair says: guys its only rehearsal it dosen't mean this is wat we are gonna see so chillAvatar ImagePeacemaker92 says: Heartless_wench brings up excellent points, and I agree with him/her wholeheartedlly. Besides, if you look in the galleries, you will find pictures of Rupert with Emma who is holding Dobby. Plus I don't mind if Hermione ends up carrying Dobby; I believe that it will be an excellent nod to Hermione and SPEW.Avatar Imagelilhpchick20 says: I am loving all these new photos. I am glad they are making sure to include that Harry dug Dobby's grave.Avatar ImagePollytomat says: RayBan do really well for Emma!Avatar ImageFlower says: I am going to cry during that scene. :'( And then my brother is going to laugh at me...Avatar ImageGryffindorGrace says: This isn't at all how I pictured the scene going, but I'm sure they'll make it all fit!
