Deathly Hallows Filming Update: Sirius Black's Motorbike is Back!

Check it out! The flying motorbike belonging to Sirius Black is back, as witnessed in new location photos for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Although not so airborne as in the books, you can see these new pics (more here all courtesy of HP4U) of stunt doubles for Hagrid and Harry zooming along the Dartford-Thurrock River Crossing tunnel and bridge express  way in Kent, England as they did a sequence to be used for the Seven Potters scene. Neither Dan Radcliffe nor Robbie Coltrane were present for the filming. HP4U.co.uk reports that "the bulk of the shoot was centered on obtaining wide shots of the pair being chased into the tunnel. Harry wearing a grey hoodie with a stripe down the arm and wand at the ready, Hagrid, in his familiar huge coat and sporting his goggles sped at around 30 mph in real time speed, weaving in and out of traffic with great effect. For Friday morning, we were treated to further perspective shots of the pair racing through the tunnels, despite the oncoming traffic, weaving in and out with Hagrid seemingly kicking out at any vehicles which came too close and Harry casting spells to his rear."
Other filming for the scenes will take place at both Leavesden and on location, rumored to be Hartfordshire over the next few weeks.

Thanks much to HP4U.co.uk, ONTD, SS, and all who owled!

interesting- a little sad that they won’t be flying, it seems, but it will probably be an awesome scene none-the-less!

SO AWESOME!!! I know they don’t drive on the freeway in the book, but I think that will make the chase even more action-packed…I wonder if they’ve already filmed the scenes from the chase sequence in the sky? But I love seeing Hagrid and Harry (even if it’s not the real actors) on the motorbike!! :D

@Rinny: I’m sure they’re still going to fly. They probably just end up on the ground after the motorbike malfunctions or something.

@splinch: What do you mean? They’re not even close to finishing filming yet…I’m sure Mad-eye’s death will be in the movie.

The majority of the chase sequence is probably in the sky, but obviously that has to be filmed at Leavesden in front of a green screen because the actors Can’t fly.

there is probably only a slight portion of the chase on the ground, they cant possibly make it all on the ground, itll be just like any other cop movie
