Shell Cottage Scene for Deathly Hallows to be Filmed in Wales?

Here is a bit of news that is perhaps very cool and a bit sad for fans as well, as there are reports of a possible location for filming of the emotional scenes at Shell cottage in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The Western Telegraph is reporting today that crews from WB have apparently been in the South Pembrokeshire coastal areas in Wales, scouting for a location that will be used for filming DH this summer. Quotage as follows:

"It is understood location staff from film company Warner Brothers have visited Pembrokeshire and booked hotel and self-catering accommodation in the area ahead of their arrival to film during early summer.

The seaside scenes in the book relate to the fictional village of Tinworth in Cornwall, the location of Shell Cottage where young wizards Harry, Ron and Hermione take shelter.

A spokesman for the Harry Potter production team said no specific locations for the film could be confirmed." 

As noted in the article, WB has not confirmed this possible location for Deathly Hallows filming. We will continue to follow the story, updates when we get them!

I don’t worry about anyone who just watches the movie. It’s the book lovers who count with me. When I heard they were casting Bill, I assumed they would be doing Shell Cottage. I don’t care if they get a new actress to play the part of Bill’s wife. I don’t know how much she has aged since she was in GOF. I wonder if they are indeed going to show the wedding too. Wonder if they will do a flashback showing how Bill’s face got messed up? They probably won’t even have his face messed up. I’m just glad they are finally going to have him in the movie.

The location looks even more beautiful than I imagined it to be as I read the book. Hopefully it delivers a full emotional blow just as well as the book did.

I’m sure that the seaside cliff scenes will work well in Wales. Squee.

Aw! I really hope this will be the location! I do think they will bring back Dobby and Clemence Poesy, seeing as how they cast Dung and Bill! (Which I am SO happy with!)

Can’t wait!

I don’t care where they film it…as long as the scenes at Shell Cottage are in the movie, I’m good. Well…

It’s exciting to get so much movie news already! I think it’s harder to process because we still haven’t seen HBP so it’s hard to transition to DH. Also, since we’re so use to having things cut everything we learn about that could stay in is always a bonus! Yay! :)
