Deathly Hallows Updates: Seven Potters Scenes Underway, Warwick Davis Confirms “Griphook” Role


Aug 26, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

For those of us who have Twitter accounts, you will have noticed several mentions of the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows today. First, Warwick Davis has made a series of fun tweets with fans over the past few weeks (notably Snapes Ipod playlist), and then today confirmed again that in addition to his longtime role as Professor Flickwick, indeed he will be playing “Griphook” the Goblin in Deathly Hallows. Mr. Davis had noted he had been to Leavesden recently, possibly for the interior Shell cottage scenes which rumor had it were due to have been filmed recently.

Also of interest is a cool update from Oliver Phelps who said “Wicked days filming today. I can say I am the first actor in the UK to have a VFX MOVA facial capture scan. Exciting technology.” Update: Oliver has now added this description: “ MOVA is a system where by using 29 cameras and UV makeup and lighting can get very detailed motions of ones face.” While it is unlikely this will be used for a ‘Holey” George Weasley ;) multiple reports previously have said use of this technology will be used for the Seven Potters as the actors all will be undergoing scans to have molds made of faces as they Polyjuice into Harry. Exciting and wicked days indeed!

Part One of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be released in theaters November 19, 2010, with part two due July 15, 2011.

I still think it will be a little weird for him to be playing two characters but, I'm confident that it will be just fine. And, the motion capture thing sounds just awesome.

It's awesome! :DAvatar ImageCarol Carvalho says: I CAN totally wait for this movie... After HBP I'm definitely not looking forward to next! It is good to know that they are having fun filming it, though! Loved Warwick's website! :P I want to see Alan Rickman's playlist, since he told he is going to post there! hehehehe The Snape one is genious!Avatar ImageFresca says: The info on these posts was really pretty cool. I wondered how they would show all 7people morphing into Harry. I wonder if that was how they had Ron and Harry change into Crabbe and Goyle as well?Avatar Imagetinagin says: Love it!! Snape's playlist makes me laugh!!!Avatar ImageHPandtheDA007 says: I like how everyone on here is like "oh I can't wait for the movie blah blah blah" well i think i can actually wait because once the movies are out thats the end, no more movies which makes me sad. but on a brighter note, i'm excited that davis is playing griphook as well.Avatar Image-MischiefManaged- says: Wheeeeeee :) I totally love the idea that they might be using the facial motion picture thingy for the Seven Potters scene. Whether they'll create seven Harrys with prosthetic makeup or with CGI, I don't know, but if I was to venture a guess, I'd say they might use both. That motion capture thingy sounds something like what they did in LOTR with Andy Serkis, to get those closeup scenes of Gollum's face. Oh and Snape's playlist was awesome :-D I really wish Mr Davis keeps true to his word and asks Alan Rickman what he's listening on his iPod :) And tells him about Snape's playlist too, I'm quite sure Mr Rickman would find it amusing.Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: thats so cool. im getting more and more excited to see DH.Avatar Imagepolyjusposhun says: Trivia games will have to have a separate catagory for questions like "How many characters in the Harry Potter series were played by multiple people?", "Name the characters in the Harry Potter series who were played by more than 1 actor.", and "Name the actors who played more than one character in the Harry Potter films." lolAvatar ImageWingardium Leviosa says: I can't wait!Avatar ImageMikaMaxwell says: I followed all of the Potter actors that have confirmed Twitter accounts; I can't wait for more updates!Avatar ImageMalfoyluva says: cant effin wait! luv both those actors Avatar Imagesilvia_storti says: can't wait already... but a part of me doesn't want it to end! :( davis' tweets are hilarious by the wayAvatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: Warwick is a sweetheartAvatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: oh, twitter is quite awesome!!!Avatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: oh, twitter is quite awesome!!!Avatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: oh, twitter is quite awesome!!!Avatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: oh, twitter is quite awesome!!!Avatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: oh, twitter is quite awesome!!!Avatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: oh, twitter is quite awesome!!!Avatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: oh, twitter is quite awesome!!!Avatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: oh, twitter is quite awesome!!!Avatar ImageCatherine says: ah. Deathly hallows news, so exciting, yet sad at the same time! we've been waiting and waiting for this awesome final movie, but these will be the last....*cry! but it sounds like its coming along very well! like they are fallowing the book as much as possible!!!!

George's 'holey' ear really freaked me out in the book, its gonna look so nasty on screen. I hope they have the tattoo on Harry's chest remark from Ron in the 7 Potters scene as well :DAvatar ImageJeannine says: @Moose_Star...there really isn't anything unusual about one person portraying ,more than one character in a film .....Warwick Davis will be both roles.Avatar ImageAsta says: I just can't wait...Avatar ImageAsta says: The deathly hallows part1 is releasing on 19th November 2010 (US) and Part2 is releasing on 15th July 2011Avatar ImageAsta says: there's still more than a year to go...Avatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: Waiting eagerly for the DH!

Btw, what're all their usernames and stuff on twitter? It's probably really obvious, but I can't find them. Oh, and who of the actors have twitter accounts and who don't? Hope someone answers. x)Avatar ImageHGROSS44 says: Seven Potters it will be great to see the changes they all go through to become Harry.Avatar Image-MischiefManaged- says: *@Lisbry*, the only confirmed real Twitter accounts for HP actors are @TomFelton, @OliverPhelps, @James_Phelps, @Mattdavelewis, @chrisrankin and @WarwickADavis. There are several fake accounts for Dan, Emma and Rupert, and there has been no official confirmation on any of the other HP actor accounts either (there are several accounts for Evanna and Bonnie and at least one account for Alfie Enoch, Afshan Azad and Genevieve Gaunt).Avatar ImageFigment says: Great! I am very much looking forward to the DH movies. Yay!Avatar ImageNundu says: A lot of the text is impossible to read on the green background. It made the article near impossible to read. :(Avatar ImageHBPFan says: Very excited about the last two films!!
