(Now with Video) More Seven Potters Location Filming at Queensway Tunnel in Liverpool


Sep 08, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

Location filming for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows continues as the Liverpool Echo is reporting today that second unit crews are on location at the Queensway Tunnel in Liverpool working more on the Seven Potters scene from the movie. UPDATE: Video of the tunnel, motorcylce, crew and prep work here on YouTube or here in our galleries. According to the article, none of the main stars will be present as this involves the Bickers Action stunt team who have worked on several of the previous Harry Potter films, as well as doubles for the actors. The paper also says:

scene is thought to involve Hagrid, who has so far been played by
Robbie Coltrane, racing through the tunnel on Sirius Black’s trademark
motorbike with Harry Potter in a sidecar fighting off enemies with his
wand. A publicist for the film said: “We have got a unit shooting for
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows “There are no principal cast members there. “It is all going very well and everybody has been very accommodating locally.”

Readers will recall we saw photos of second unit filming for the Seven Potters scene at the end of July involving doubles for Hagrid and Harry on the magical flying motorbike belonging to Sirius Black.

Avatar ImageThat-Gryffindor-Girl says: This scene will be soooo cool! and i think i'm first....! :D I loved this scene in the book, so i hope it's goodAvatar ImageLuce_depp says: why are they on the ground....Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: Cool.. But I do hope they have other stuff in the air.Avatar ImageHermioneRon4ever says: This is a great opening (almost) scene!!! Except I'm going to go with everyone else and ask "Why are they on the ground?"Avatar Imagemadman1277 says: sounds cool, hope they go in air toAvatar Imageultraviolet says: this scene annoys me a bit, Harry's reluctance to let everybody die for him, you'd think by now he would accept was has to be doneAvatar ImageX-Lillie-Lovegood-X says: I think cus the muggles can see them they have to be on the ground Or mabey there attempting to hide in the tunnel xxxAvatar ImageBad-Muggle says: This is a cool scene, but in the book was way too long and drawn out. Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Cool. Can't wait to see this scene! I'm really curious on why they're on the ground.Avatar Imageshellybasson says: Oops! I meant on not oon! LOL Avatar Imageshellybasson says: Weren't they oon brooms in the book? Avatar Imagebeewell says: Awesome! Can't wait to see this scene. Know in the books that they were in the air but it might not be possible to film all those people on the brooms they way they would need to. Lots of confusion would be there.Avatar ImageBlatcher914 says: Well whether it is in the air or on the ground,I'm sure it will be a fantastic scene (I hope) Every article about the movies means we're getting a little closer ,everyday to DH movies yay!Avatar ImageNecrotoxin says: I can't wait to see this scene! Avatar ImageFifi says: Interesting why they're filming on the ground...Avatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: Wow,this scene is probably gonna be amazing,though like everyone else i don't get why they're on the ground.It could be that half of the chase takes place on the groung and the other part in air,just to make things look even better...Avatar ImageMoose_Starr says: Yesterday I saw a motorcycle with a sidecar and I squeed out loud ... alas, it was bright yellow so, I didnt really think it was Sirius's motorcycle that had just flown over here (but, you never know)Avatar ImageSmonocco says: This scene should be good Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Cool stuff...Avatar Imagelexuslovesweasleys says: i cant wait to see it but the whole on the ground thing is no fun Avatar ImageeiVega says: I think it's going to be a combo of sky and street. Of course they'll expand this action sequence in the movie. That's what they do. Avoiding cars will be an extra menace. They'll probably hit a point where they have to fly up to avoid crashing or something. We're never going to see pictures of the flying stuff because it will occur inside a studio with green screens. I think it will be still be fun with the street chase. I couldn't imagine them completely cutting out the sky part. We'll just have to be surprised for that part.Avatar Imagekalb says: I hope they do some aerial work. The stuff on the ground will be fine, but I want to see the fight in the air. That was terrifying in the book. Especially when Hagrid fell. Avatar Imageaxlgirl says: This motorbike better be flying at some stage, that's all I'm saying... Avatar Imageaprillovegood says: Im going to see what i can spot tomorrow after college YAYYYYY!!!!WOOOAvatar ImageFresca says: Check out the Bickers site, as they have some great stunt equipment on it. This will be an unforgettable scene when Harry and Hagrid are fighting off the Death Eaters. Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I am certainly looking forward to seeing this scene in the final film!Avatar Imagehermionerules1844 says: I don't think I'll be able to watch Hedwig die.Avatar ImageAndreaB09 says: Sweet. But i want to know more now! Avatar ImagexAnaheyy says: *EXCITEMENT !*Avatar ImageMrs.Brisby says: As long as they have Harry's "Accio Hagrid" line I'll be a happy camper. :DAvatar ImageScarStruck says: looks totally awesome! however why are they on the ground! they are flying! its the FLYING MOTORCYCLE!!!!!!!!! OH WELL I STILL CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!Avatar ImagecrazyforSeverus says: Can't wait to see this scene! I bet they would say they had "no principal cast members" there even if there were so they wouldn't have too many crazy fans. Avatar Imagecghambright says: Hagrid and Harry go through a tunnel on the motorbike during the sequence when they end up on the ground during the 7 Potters chase scene. I'm assuming it's for that. SO EXCITING!! I can't wait to see this movie!! ONLY 437 DAYS LEFT!!!Avatar Imagecghambright says: Obviously they're going to be Flying at some point, but it's not like we're going to see that stuff! They will have to film the flying scenes in front of a Green screen. Avatar Imageiheartpink says: YAY!! video was very exciting, but i cant wait for the film ^_^Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: cool. i cant wait to see the whole movie!!! :DAvatar Image42sk8ter says: aren't they supposed 2 be up in the air? Avatar Image42sk8ter says: aren't they supposed 2 be up in the air? Avatar Imagejaiboi2 says: TO EVERYONE THATS CARRYING ON AND MOANING THAT THERE SEEING THINGS BEING FILMED ON THE GROUND REMEMBER THIS, when we first saw pictures of the motorbike chase everyone had the same questions or for those of you who didnt read the comments, they are more than likely doing a chase through the tunnel where they will take off again at the other end and fly down into it to hide from the pursuing death eaters. altho this action sequence wasnt in the book i really think jo rowling will have given it her approval as it adds a bit more action to that scene. dont forget they cant film the flying scenes out on location this as you all will remember will be done at leavsdon studio as is all the flying around on broomsticks etc with a green screen. so dont panic people dont forget the first trailer for deathly hallows will possibly not be out until late spring or early summer as they dont wrap fiming both parts until next april. hope thats chilled everyone out whose bothered to read my comment.Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Seems neat... I kinda see the whole scene as they will be in air but then something happens where they are beeing chased on the ground and then try to lift back up again or something? I'm not worried that they won't make the scene at least half of it in the air, but they probably want to make it more dramatic with them being chased against the traffice or something like that. :)Avatar Imagejeannemcl says: Maybe they're on the ground because film makers haven't been able to find a flying motorcycle.Avatar Imagesgreeter8888 says: The stunt doubles should get more credit for what they do. Avatar Imageweasleyalltheway says: the videowas nt mch, but i still can't wait for this!!!!Avatar ImageHeartbreakDX says: cool.Avatar Imagedobbyis_free says: wow. this is the coolest and now i cant wait EVEN MORE for the movie because this is one of my FAVORITE parts from the book!!!Avatar ImageKhephran says: so cool, i'm very excited for this movie!Avatar Imagejuhuudi says: sooo awesome!!!! cant wait for it!Avatar Imagedanaskeeter says: Are they filming any scenes where the motorcycle is flying???Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: hmm. interesting.Avatar ImageHBPIA says: WOW hagrid looks huge(which is great) and out of place on sirius's bikeAvatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: Oh,please someone lift them to the sky!!! Why are they on the ground?!!!Avatar Imagezephy_stephy says: Oh this makes me very happy! I'm sure this part is going to just be about 3 seconds of film, but still! I'm getting more and more excited. It needs to just get here!!!Avatar Imagegymbo1 says: This was like 5 minutes from my house Woop Woop :DAvatar Imagemugglemom4 says: I too can't wait to see this on film. Avatar ImageSmitch says: It's all happening! Before we know it we'll be settling in our theatre seats with popcorn and unblinking eyes! Avatar ImageProsophules says: Hm. It's quite a disappointment for me that the scene takes place on the ground.Avatar Imagemakochibi says: I wish they would have them in the air. What is the point of the flying motorbike if it isn't flying? and how will the other Harry's be moving? there is only one bike. This should have still been set in the air.Avatar Imagelonerwolfygirl says: I so cannot wait to see the movies!!Avatar Imagekiwimci says: I LIVE IN LIVERPOOL!! Right people I'm off and grabbin a camera with meAvatar Imagejaiboi2 says: DO U GUYS NOT READ PREVIOUS COMMENTS. READ MY COMMENTS ON PAGE 3 AND QUIT YARNING ON ABOUT THE FLYING SEQUENCES THEY FILM THEM AT LEAVESDON STUDIOS.Avatar Imagemjkalldaway says: I can't wait to see the scene, but i hope they put some of it in air. Having broomsticks on the ground isn't exactly what they were made forAvatar Imagesmgkkg says: why are they on the ground???Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: cool, it's weird how movie making is so slowww for such an action packed sceneAvatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Nice video.Avatar ImageCatherine says: awesome!!!Avatar Imagepotterfan4lyfe says: i dont really like this scene cuz poor HEDWIG dies i loved hedwigAvatar ImageTheGriff says: Cool.
