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!

Wow! That is so amazing. I can’t wait to watch it. It is so cool that there are so many fan films of parts of Deathly Hallows out there. It really makes the long wait for the real movie more bearable. And there are some truly brilliant fan films out there. But I’ve never seen one that did the whole entire story of Deathly Hallows. Again, wow. This is too awesome!

“Emmm question……in the US version of DH….does Mr Weasly come for the Dursleys? Or did the claymation goes do a WB and make a few creative changes ;)”

OK, I know you said this in a non-serious, and totally innocent playful manner. But I just wanted to take this oportunity to stand on a soapbox for a moment.

DO A WB?!? It’s not a WB. Do you think we’re so special? Do you think we’re the only victims? Do you think we’re the only fandom whose movies are different from the source material? Look around more at other adaptations over the many years and see just how lucky we are with everything WB as included in these movies. There are other stories of fiction which have received much, much, much, much, much, much more changes to the story than Harry Potter ever has.

Wow.. this is so amazing. It must have taken forever. I’ve only seen the first part so far, but when I have time to spare I’m certainly going to sit down and watch the whole thing.

I’ve only seen the trailer and the epilogue of this miniseries, but I feel that it’s a much closer representation of DH than the WB may give us. This is what I had in mind as an adaptation of this series when I first read SS in 1999: an animated miniseries.

Oh. My. Goody-good-goodness. That was amazing. The Avada Kedavra from Voldemort actually sent shivers down my spine.

This is pretty terrific. Is Warner Brothers having a fit?
