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!

The following is a joke: I hope they have Mollie and Bellatrix meet for coffee at the mall instead of duel to the death. Might be a nice changeup. ;-)

I hope this doesn’t mean they won’t be flying, I was hoping for an airborne action-chase scene. :-(

Hopefully it won’t all be on the ground, but still sounds cool.

I actually hope we get to see Hermione as Harry… and Ron as Harry as opposed to hearing about it later
and poor George’s ear being cursed off

it’s actually pretty smart to have the motorcycle on the ground (at least for a bit) perhaps harry throws down instant darkness powder and they go airborne

(truth… i hope the Anglia shows up and just randomly runs over a few spiders and almost rescues Hagrid and that is when he is kidnapped by the Death Eaters…. We need to see that vehicle too. That would make me soooo happy)

giggles or better yet the Anglia goes after Death Eaters or even Voldy himself … and then later we see it almost run over Dawlish and Luna pulls him out of the way pats him on the head and gives him a chocolate kiss.
