We have several pieces of news and new photos to update you on tonight. First in a series of interesting emails, TLC has received word that possible exterior shots and filming for the Seven Potters scene for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is due to take place next week at the Bovingdon Airfield in Hertfordshire, England. Oclumencia has also received this same report and now has some curious photos of filming lights lining the airstrip as seen via this link. We should point out this source is very much unconfirmed, and to further that, additional reports say that rehearsals with crowds of extras as guests for the Bill and Fleur wedding are taking place in old air hangers down the road from Leavesden studios, possibly at this same airfield. We are working to update more on all of this and will update with more when we can, but for the time being please consider this very much in the rumor category for now.

Second, TLC has more on scenes involving Bill Nighy as Rufus Scrimgeour in Deathy Hallows. We have heard independently on a what is being reported on HP4U regarding two scenes for Scrimgeour where he makes a speech regarding “dark times ahead.” TLC can add our sources say this will take place at the Ministry with 15 photographers and up to a crowd of 50 plus worried and anxious employees. The HPU4 article also say that “He [is] also thrown straight in at the deep end and tasked with the job of
reading out the will of Albus Dumbledore and distributing out his
belongings; a scene filmed in the sitting room at the Burrows – so yes,
to all of you who’ve written in to ask, it is re-built! We also understand Bill worked on one of the blue screen stages for photographs to be included in the Daily Prophet.”

A reminder too, that filming on the wedding scene from Deathly Hallows is reported to begin next week in earnest.

Finally, thanks too to Oclumencia, and especially to Thiego for some lovely new high res photos from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. This editor was quite pleased to see this fabulous high res still of Jason Isaacs as Lucius, as well as this fantastic shot of Umbridge (Imelda Staunton) at her desk, individual photos of the Trio and more, as well as many on set photos with director David Yates (including this very eeriy one of Lucius and Harry with the prophecy globe)

Which one was it?Avatar ImagePetraN says: I didn't see the one with Lucius and Harry with the globe. Which one was it?Avatar ImageBwaySaint says: Are the Dursley's out completely??Avatar Imagefbv807 says: We haven't gotten any semblance of a full casting announcement yet, so don't worry. I can't imagine they'd finish the series without the Dursleys. Yates has said how he wants to bring back as many people as possible, Kloves is an inclusionist when it comes to the scripts, and they've got way more hours to work with that I'm sure they'll keep them!Avatar Imageharrypotter1991 says: Love the fact that they are keeping the Burrow in the DH movie! Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: I hope to god they include the dursleys...it won't be right! I want to see the handshake from Dudley and moare than anything I want to see that look from Petunia. If Fiona can get that right it'll be awesomeAvatar ImageHermyGrnger says: I really want to know how they are going to introduce the wedding!

There wasn’t anything in the HPHBP movie about Bill & Fleurs’ relationship!" They don't need to have. Like any other film where there is a wedding, people will fairly quickly get an idea what is going on from discussion between the actors before the wedding. They don't need lots of backstory to set it up just a few bits of well placed dialogue. IAvatar ImageWeasleyBoy says: I wonder if the Burrow will lokk different ? I hope at least a bit or it would have been pointless to destroy it completly in the last movie.Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Cool!!Avatar ImagePrisoner Of Azkaban says: I can't see the Lucis and Harry one either. Also Voldemort is even listed on the first part of DH on IMDB :SAvatar ImageScarStruck says: yay! for the burrow!Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: awesome pics. i cant wait to see pics from the wedding and more pics from the 7 potters. and theyve added an extra scene in for scrimgeour.Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: awesome pics. i cant wait to see pics from the wedding and more pics from the 7 potters. and theyve added an extra scene in for scrimgeour.Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: awesome pics. i cant wait to see pics from the wedding and more pics from the 7 potters. and theyve added an extra scene in for scrimgeour.Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: awsome!!Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Awesome, I hope that they are going to film the seven Potters soon, and I can't wait to see the wedding scenes. Oh, and really cool photos for OotP! :DAvatar ImageMoose_Starr says: Wow ... this is siriusly exciting news. I am so happy that Bill Nighy is going to be in the movies, I have always imagined Scrimgeour as Nighy & Nighy as Scrimgeour. Like, when I'm reading I most often get an image of the character in my head but, I do not usually visualize a real life actor as the character. But, with Scrimgeour it has always been Nighy so, I'm really excited for this. I have to wonder though, why they destroyed The Burrow just to rebuild it? Why create extra work for themselfs when they could just have left things as they are and used the random-scenes time to tell existing stories that were left out due to time contraints :sAvatar ImageWON_TWO says: Hmmmmm... Very interesting...Avatar Imageizziewitch says: Those lights on the runway are really wierd looking. Can't quite imagine what they're going to be filming there.Avatar ImageHorcruxalej says: the one s with dumbledor and voldamort are funnt cuz there just chatting and it just weird to see them in character hanging out haAvatar Imagemoony_lupin says: That's a lot of cherry pickers! I wonder what they would be using them for if WB are using them at all for DH. It'll be great to see Bill Nighy as Scrimgeour, and they seem to have given him another scene, I suppose to make up for the lack of his presence in HBP. Great photos! I like the action poses that the actors are making. Avatar ImageBellatrixlefey says: Wow amazing! The photos are great! Avatar Imagehp29 says: Those pictures are awesome :) Avatar Imagejamesdeluna says: I am so glad that they decided to split Deathly Hallows into two movies. As I continue to read these reports or rumors of what is going on with filming, much more of the content of the book is being included. And, I am glad. There is really nothing that can be taken out of this book. Judging from how I liked what they did with the Half-Blood Prince movie, I am sure we will not be disappointed with Deathly Hallows. Can't wait! I enjoyed going through the Order of the Phoenix set photos. I really liked the ones of Ralph Fiennes as Voldemort and Michael Gambon as Dumbledore in their full garb chatting with each other. It's a great image: Voldemort having a conversation with Dumbledore. Ha!Avatar ImagePhylis says: Wonderful photos!Avatar ImageCalynthe says: Yay, Scrimgeour is going to be at the Burrow! And Bill and Fleur's wedding! It won't have the same meaning because we were never properly introduced to Bill, but it's still going to be *sweet*! I can't wait. :DAvatar ImageEl-El says: cool Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: awesum pix :)Avatar ImageWingardium Leviosa says: Great! It's interesting that the Burrow is rebuilt... And I'm also curious about the Dursleys: Will they be in the movie?Avatar ImageWingardium Leviosa says: Wow, great pictures as well!Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Awesome.... and I do hope they include the Dursleys. I mean, this is the very last time we get to see them. Oh and great hew pics too! :DAvatar Imagegoodegogo says: You know I don't think they should have burned down the Burrow in the first place because there really didn't need to and it wasn't in the book.Avatar Imageyourinn3rchild says: Do you think all 7 Harry's will slouch over like Dan did in HBP? I really hope Harry and Ginny's scenes aren't as akward as they were in HBP.Avatar Imagehermionerules1844 says: It's going to be weird to see the seven Potters. That must take advanced special effects.Avatar ImageRemsyLuck says: I can't believe how excited I am for this movie already... and it's still so long away! XDAvatar ImageRemsyLuck says: I can't believe how excited I am for this movie already... and it's still so long away! XDAvatar ImageBriannaWazHere says: Where are the Dursley's?!?!?!?!? That's where the seven potters is??! Are they changing it???? They cant cut them out of the final movie :((( but im excited for the wedding. Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Wow the first few photos from the last few movies!!!!!!Avatar ImageFresca says: These actors are so great! Jason Isaacs and Imelda Staunton capture the essence of their characters just in a photograph. I love the arrognce in Lucius' photo , and you can almost hear Umbridge simpering in her photo! Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: wow, looks like they'll be quite busy next week then! :)Avatar Imagecleverssynonym says: Oh wow the pictures of like, Bellatrix, Voldemort, Dumbledore and Harry together all smiling are so surreal and amazing! The group photos are so great!Avatar ImageCandyCane2304 says: can't wait to see deathly hallow's next year.Avatar Imagevicky granger says: Great !

I don't it's probably just a rumor!Avatar Imagenitroball says: Interesting that they didn't edit out Ralph Finnes' nose, and the dots used for tracking, on the high-res Order of the Phoenix pictures.Avatar ImageSteph says: Love the set photos! The director's shots are always my favorites, there is just something so neat about seeing the cast in character with the director. =] I especially love the one of Ralph as Voldie with David Yates.Avatar ImageH.P.2009 says: So do We know what the story is behind those lights?Avatar Imagemuggle..andproudofit says: i am so happy ! i was so worried that since in HBP the Burrow was burned down that they would not have the wedding but they said they were ... but if they don't have it in the movie they was have to awserer to Very upset fans .... Like me :)Avatar Imagehewy says: Of course the Burrow was rebuilt for the wedding! The question is why did they have to burn it down in the first place??????? It made no sense in HBP to begin with! What were they thinking?????Avatar Imagehermione97 says: Really nice High-res photos!Avatar ImageNosebleed Nougat says: I want to see the cup of tea and the handshake and that whole sceneAvatar Imagedave1972 says: great picsAvatar ImagecrazyforSeverus says: I am so glad to hear the Burrow was rebuilt and they are including the wedding. I can't wait for the seven Potters, that was so exciting in the book. I'm excited they are having more Scrimgeour, I was disappointed he wasn't in the 6th movie.Avatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: Omigosh that's not too far from me...i wonder what day exactly they're filming...I wish I could drive by or something lolAvatar ImageMistic Willow says: Yes I was a little worried about the Burrow after the fire in HBP myself, and I am also glad that the wedding is being included I wonder if we will see the Dursely's departing also at the beginning I hope!!! so!!! I am really looking forward to Bill and Flurs wedding also!!!! I just love Shell Cottage!!!!Avatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: EEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeee!!! I can hardly wait!!!
