Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the Claymation

Harry Potter fans are well known for their talent and creativity; tonight we have another clear example of that in action. A fan has made a claymation movie of  Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows that is now available to watch online.
,br>Starting here with the dramatic opening at Malfoy Manor, the stop -action claymation fan film runs over four hours in length, and is in 26 parts. While this is clearly a fan adaptation, labor of love and the filmmaker's personal vision of the beloved final book in the Harry Potter series, you can see some truly amazing work as depictions of things like the adventures in Gringotts, the heartbreaking moments at Shell Cottage, the epic battle for Hogwarts, the pivotal events with Nagini, Snape and the Prince's Tale, and the emotional Forest scene are all vividly brought to life. Enjoy!

Thanks so much Thiego!

I did enjoy watching the first few clips, Wow! the time it would take to do that… One thing that bothered me, was how the talking in the video would just stop.
Example: Harry: Whats Going on Hagrid!
Then we see Hagrid say nothing for a few seconds…
Harry: Your right, we better hurry.

I watched this whole thing last night. I cannot believe I cried during Dobby’s deatha nd Fred’s and seeing Tonks and Lupin but i did ! I did ! At claymation ! Heaven help me when the real film comes out.
These people deserve an award for this. So well done !
One minor quibble: Hermione’s voice actor…too " oh yah ! Like….we need to hide…ya know …like yah ! with a bad English accent that she kept forgetting.
Otherwise – this was incredible.

Wow! This film is absolutely amazing! Anyone who hasn’t watched it yet, you must go watch it now. Words can not express how awesome it is. It really feels like a real movie. Definitely makes the wait for Half-Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows more bearable.

Really great and fantastic, and I admire his dedication. But… will it make me sound ungrateful or something if I complain about some of the minor changes? I get that some things had to be shortened, but would it be so difficult to make a Dedalus Diggle character? Arthur saying “Muggles” disparagingly was a bit much for me. And would it have been difficult to suspend Charity with fishing line? I know, I know… ungrateful. But its just when I see a fan-made thing I expect it to be a little truer to the book than a WB production.
