They probably did this though so the audience could distinguish who was whoAvatar Imagesessionka says: I can go along with the 7 Potters keeping their own voices. The same thing happened in COS with Ron and Harry.Avatar Imagesessionka says: The split at the point where Voldemort takes the Eldar Wand is pretty far into the book.Avatar ImageSashaSabrina says: OMG YES YES YES THEY TOLD THE STORY OF THE DEATHLY HALLOWS HOW i HOPE THEY WOULD! ahhhhhh :D :D: :D :DAvatar Imagedoughboy6390 says: OMG!!!!!!!

Avatar ImageCarinaPotter says: Am I the only person who keeps refreshing this page for more details? Yes? Ah, well. c:Avatar ImagePandyana says: It sounds wonderful beyond words. I can't wait to see it!!! (Though, I would have liked to see Wormtail strangled.)Avatar Imagemoonyschick says: I'm so excited! So far, everything sounds great. I don't really care much if Wormtail dies or not. Yeah, it would have been nice, but I feel like caring if he dies gives him more attention than he's worth. Avatar Imagejeannemcl says: And so begins the complaining.Avatar ImageHPFan19802007 says: Maybe he does in the second half or something. That would be a bit dissapointing though cause he's suppoed to die when he feels a bit of remorse for Harry. Avatar ImageBrennaPotter says: Omg , I'm so excited ! :) But how come it was shown in Chicago ?! That is SO unfair ! :(Avatar Imagefloridianhp says: OMG!! WOW!!! im just upset they dont show the memorial. :( how could they notAvatar ImageCarinaPotter says: @Moonyschick: Agreed. I'm way too excited about the other details of the film to really dwell on Wormtail's fate. Avatar Imagepotterfan4lyfe says: AHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagepotterfan4lyfe says: This is so awesome!!!!! Cant wait!!!!!!!!! I dont really care about Wormtail dieing or not but siriusly no Dumbledore's funeral?!?!?! thats just sad but oh well(: Its coming closer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imageksddancer says: Oh wow!

AAAHHH, ITS SO HARDAvatar Imagealexzander64lubin says: read on to the part bout hedwigs death, i want to read on but am forcing myself to wait to see the film. AAAHHH, ITS SO HARDAvatar Imageravenclawgirl123 says: This sounds EPIC!Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: WORMTAIL IS SUPPOSED TO DIE!!!!!! and who ever wrote all of that can not spell at all.Avatar Imagehermy007 says: "continue reading, if you're ready" i was born ready for this! my only problem was that i wished they could have included the monument for lily and james. still, this whole movie sounds freakin' b.a. anothere weird potter moment for me, once again before i even read anything on leaky. i was driving, and we passed this big white tent canopy with lots of chairs in it. it was for a wedding, and of course i immediately thought of part 1. :) 89 days, wooohooo!Avatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: wormtail lives?!!?Avatar Imageterieb says: OMG! How will I make it through the next 90 days!!!!!Avatar Imageccoolkid says: do u think there gonna do the memorial please answer Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: OMG!!!!!!!!! I can't believe people have seen it already!! AHH!! It all sounds great so far!Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: NOOOO they cant change who dies. oh well the rest seems awesomeAvatar Imageazaadpotter says: OMG! im shaking literrallllly. its awesome. now ijust cant wait. might die of it. OMG! Avatar ImageDelilah3136 says: I just keep staring blankly at the page. I keep thinking about other stuff that I really hope got included. I can hardly believe that even though we're all excited and reading about it now, we'll be watching it in 3D in a few months... This is all so unreal, it's almost scaring me. This is Part One, coming out very soon......this is actually happening. I can't believe it. :'( I'm so mixed up with emotions right now, I can't explain how I'm feeling.. Avatar ImageDiamondWings says: OMG! OMG! OMG! I'm like... "I can't go back now, i read it..." and "Yaaaayyy!!! Accio November" mixed... does anyone understands??? haha!!!Avatar ImageShirkon says: Wormtail dies when his silver hand strangles him. Since the hand will probably be CG and since they said most of the CG isn't finished we might still see his hand strangle him. This is afterall just a preview. There might still be changes.Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: That entire article is soooooo SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! I just hope the majority of it stays in the film because it sounds amazing. Two and a half hours!!!!, I don't mind my bum going numb in the cinema if the film stays at that length. :DAvatar Imagedakota1084 says: amazing!!! although wormtail should of died, and the memorial to the potter's should of appeared. Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: I'm not too sure about Wormtail living, but then again seeing someone being strangled by their own hand (in 3D on a massive screen!) might be a little too far, so i get why they've (possibley) changed his fate.Avatar Imageshi suisen says: Lovely, I just spoiled myself :P Oh whatever, this movie sounds AWESOME!!! Why did Wormtail live? -_- I want to see him being strangled by his own hand.Avatar Imagexcrazymex16 says: *dead* This is just too great, I don't think I can wait any longer. :x I need to see it now!!!Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: If we did see Wormtail strangled by his own hand, surely that would push the certificate higher (???), and that would piss off the younger audience who wouldn't be allowed to see it. :/ Anyway.........................................SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE :DAvatar ImageHPlover11 says: Woooow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ACCIO NOVEMBER!!!!Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: I just read the list again and i am terrified of spiders (just like Ron), 3D spiders on a giant screen!!! I will definitely be looking away at that bit!Avatar ImageHPlover11 says: Looking forwards to seeing the dancing scene, Ron and the spiders.......... Ohhh!! HEDWIG & DOBBY!!!. My tears have already started coming!!!!!!!Avatar Imagedragonfrog says: About Wormtail, my guess he will still die, but it'll be dramatized differently from the books. Remember in the movies it hasn't been verbally established that Wormtail is in Harry's debt, and the moment of hesitation that leads to the hand turning against him would be hard to dramatize effectively cinematically. My guess is we will see V kill Wormtail, perhaps even by having him strangled with the hand, when he discovers Wormtail let Potter go. Perhaps a scene in the beginning of Part 2. Edward didn't mention whether we see Dobby die. Wouldnt't that happen right after Dobby rescues Harry, so wouldn't that be in Part 1? Or do we not see the end of Malfoy Manor until Part 2?Avatar Imageda_member0808 says: Wow!!! It sounds amazing! I'm getting chills just reading this :) Avatar ImageLunaLupinTonks says: mlehSQUEEaaaaaah*sob*teartearmlehSQUEE!!Avatar ImageArmill says: it all sounds good to me but there are a couple of minor things that just dont sound right to me. like with xeno saying voldemort. maybe once i see it it will make more sense but it at the moment just doesnt feel right to me on that.Avatar ImageHermioNAY says: Is it November yet???? I was pretty worried how they were going to explain the horcruxes' importance to Voldemort, because so much was left out of HBP, but it sounds like it is going to all come together just fine. About Wormtail, I believe that to earn a PG-13 rating, only a certain number of deaths can be shown...therefore they might have had to sacrifice Wormtail's death scene in order to keep it at that rating.Avatar ImageHydrus says: Everything except the Wormtail thing sounds great. If he doesn't die, I'm gonna hunt him down and strangle him myself!Avatar Imagedragonfrog says: Just read elsewhere that Dobby's death is in Part 1. So that question of mine is answered.Avatar ImageLeander21 says: nice Avatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: OH MY GOODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD! OH MY GODRIC'S HOLLOW!! THIS IS FREAKING AWESOME! can't wait!Avatar Imageakcorr says: I was wondering how they were going to tie it all together. Seems like they may have done it!Avatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: @Armill (ROAR): but it's clever, isn't it?! XENO SAYS 'VOLDEMORT 'TO GET THE DEATH EATERS TO COME AND GET HARRY! instead of sending an owl, he says the tabooed name to get the DEs there fast; I think it's pretty smart!Avatar Imageblackhair says: Its good that there are plenty to look forward in Part 1 but hey wait did he just said no memorial at the Potters Grave that means that there's something they have removed and its very very emotional scene and y did they do that ;( That would have been so much emotional and so touching so that means Harry and Hermione in the Godric Hollow graveyard visit only the Ignotus Peverrel well this is just wrong yyyyyyyy Yates u are so gonner this timeAvatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: And the song is amazing (Nick Cave's O'Children); its mood is oddly sad.Avatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: @blackhair: No, they visit Lily & James' graves too, but only the memorial statue is not included (and I REALLY don't know why...), Avatar Imageblackhair says: Well apart from the Memorial i think we may also miss the Flashback Harry gets when he escaped Godric Hollow because they never did show any news or anything abt the characters playing Lily n James Potter So it literally means we are gonna miss how Harry recollects the entire incident of October 31 '81 which is what i'm disappointedAvatar Imageblackhair says: @Maxtina: Thanks for the correction but we didn't hear abt the flashback of the dreadful Halloween of '81 when Lily n James where murdered Avatar ImageHPlover11 says: I'd love to see this flashback. I thing they cast the characters of Lily and James for the scene in the forest where Harry was to Voldemort 'the resurestion stone)so the flashback can be there. I really hope it will be in.Avatar ImageSindi says: Im beyond words!!! This is going to be amazing!!!! Avatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: MUGGLENET HAS SOME FULL REVIEWS!!Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: 'The crew has not yet finalized their choice of composer for the second part of "Deathly Hallows." I was so hoping it would be Nicholas Hooper again. I love his music for 'Half-Blood Prince'.Avatar ImageHPlover11 says: OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:Thank you Maxina Potter for the suggestion!! I just visited MUGGLENET & SNEETCHSEEKET!!!AWESOME ,GREAT,EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait till november anymore.Avatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: Oh my God! You guys are saying.... Harry doesn't see his parents die?! THAT WAS ONE OF THE MOST EMOTIONAL PARTS OF THE BOOK! HOW COULD THEY?!Avatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: OHMYGOD!!! *hyperventalating* Avatar ImageHPlover11 says: OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:Thank you Maxina Potter for the suggestion!! I just visited MUGGLENET & SNITCHSEEKER!!!AWESOME ,GREAT,EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t wait till november anymore.Avatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: @HPlover11: You're welcome, It's amazing!Avatar ImageHPlover11 says: Do they confirm that Harry won't see his parents death? I hope NO.I'll be VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!They can't do that!!!!!Avatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: Why is Leaky too slow when it comes to updating with the news?!Avatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: @HPlover1: I hope NOT!! I LOVE that part! It's my favorite part, seriously!Avatar Imageblackhair says: well everyone how are HP fans don't u think that its quite strange that there are only 88 days remaining and still there are stuff to be edited and fixing up the score for the movie and for part 8 they have not yet finalized the composer for it. All this reminds me of 2008 winter i hope people did catch what i was trying to conclude. Hey i'm not anti-Yates people criticizing every action of his. But the way things have been carried out looks glum Avatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: well i think i've read everything that's been posted anywhere now and i have to say, this sounds like it's gonna blow everyone away. even the harshest reviews are extremely positive. less than 3 months now!!Avatar Imageblackhair says: @HPlover1,Maxtina I'm sorry to disappoint everyone but have we ever heard of characters playing role of Lily,James n Sirius recently in the news or interviews for DH nope so which means they not be in DH 1 n DH2 which means they won't accompany HArry in his walk through the forest. And that's a very big drawbackAvatar ImageMudblood_and_proud says: o my goblin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!! but pettigrew was supposed 2 die!!!!!!!!!!! rowling will NOT b a happycamper Youtube: mudbloodandproud1996Avatar ImageMiss_Odadkt says: OMG! This sound amazing! But does this mean that Wormtail will be in the final battle. Doesn't that make for some problems? Anyway, can't wait to see it! Nagini coming out of Bathilda's mouth sounds scaring..Avatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: BRILLIANT!!!!Avatar ImageAsi says: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGAvatar Imagefinley says: Oh to be spoiled!!! I think all the canon deaths will occur but maybe not in the same places. Would suit me if Snape lives!!!! And "jeannemclROAR" think you may be right - "and so the complaining begins" Love it!!! Here's one pre film complaint to start it - Have seen "Why Chicago?" but what about Why America????? Not that I would have seen it even if it had been in LondonAvatar Imagedipsofairy says: I was worried when i first heard that the dividing point was Voldemort getting the elder wand from Dumbledore's tomb, as it was so near the end of the book, but thankfully, reading this has reassured me. Obviously they've brought the timeline of this happening forward in the film. In the second half it won't just be Aberforth and the Battle of Hogwarts, but we'll have them breaking into Gringotts and the dragon as well, so not too bad. I do hope they don't rush anything. Obviously they've got a "better" end planned for Wormtail in the final battle scene? Great review. Thanks.Avatar Imagestrife19 says: OMG! and there's the sensual kiss between harry and hermione.. and all of the important parts are in there.. i really can't wait.. this is going to be really exciting!!^__^Avatar ImageKirsikka says: SOUNDS AWESOME. I think I might be fully satisfied from this movie!Avatar ImageGlacius says: OMFG Cant WaitAvatar ImagelittleL says: no .. will ... not read ...Avatar Imagethetwotowers46 says: YES, this movie is going to be the highlight of my year! Looking forward to the dance scene with Harry and Hermione, listening to the song now!!Avatar Imagebeallgood01 says: Marking the days on the calendar and will probably have to arrange the evening off but it will be worth it.Avatar ImageMelissa Anelli says: Wow! An great report of the first film Edward! :)Avatar ImageFilmGirl27 says: OH MY GOD.Avatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageJaneMarple9 says: Sounds amazing - shame about Wormtail though :-DAvatar ImageNotSoAwry says: Ooiooh! This sounds like it's going to be great! I'll admit to being a little bit worried, but I'm not now.Avatar Imagechuzzle says: Woah! Avatar Imagesonofravenclaw says: My. God. Quite possibly the most exciting thing i have ever read (except for the books themselves :L) but Pettgrew should DIE!! DIE DIE DIE!!Avatar Imageweasleywannabe1997 says: Wowie wow wow wow!!!!! Can't wait!!!! It sounds AMAZING!Avatar Imagepeaceforall says: O.M.G.Avatar ImageJames_Padfoot says: THEY LET WORMTAIL LIVE??????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT? VOLDEMORT'S NIPPLE, HAGRID'S BUTTCRACK, DOBBY'S SOCK! /wizardswears There better be some kind of EPIC scene with revenge or redemption for Wormtail in part II.Avatar Imagekatherine102678 says: All I have to say is wow, nice roundup!Avatar ImageJames_Padfoot says: On a bright note, everything sounds amazing! I can't wait!Avatar ImageAmalieta Tsubaki says: Really can't w8 to see. Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: GAH :D:D SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited now XDAvatar Imagerotfang07 says: Fantastic coverage on Mugglenet. A podcast and 3 detailed reviews. And the Whinge-Fest has already begun despite the fact that everyone who saw the unfinished showing said it was "perfect" and the best film in the series by far. If anyone still thinks that the films have to follow the books exactly then all they are doing is deliberately setting themselves up to be disappointed. Why would anybody choose to do that? Odd. Avatar ImageHPlover11 says: @Maxina Potter. Really? That's my favorite part too!!!!!Avatar Imagethesmu says: Really excited about the animation!Avatar ImageHPlover11 says: @thetwotours46. Yeah looking forward to the dance to. And as soon as I read,I was on youtube listening to that song!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageSilvery Doe says: Wow! A lot happens in the first film. Isn't the part where Voldemort takes the wand from Dumbledore like really far into the book? I can't remember. The second film must just be a ton of action at Hogwarts then. Maybe we'll see the sad death of some of the characters we didn't see in the book die like Lupin and Tonks.Avatar ImageLove.for.the.marauders says: I was on mugglenet and leaky cauldren all night last night checking for new updates every 5 minutes. I am annoyed that I have to wait until part 2 to see wormtail die, if he dies that is. I am sooooooo excited for part 1 and estatic that nearly every review I have read/heard says that the movie stays loyal to the books, more so than the other films. Avatar Imagegaminette says: But what about Draco?Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: I think they are still keeping a lot of secrets back about part 2. Remember, no one has said anything (as far as I've seen) about who is playing Lily, Severus and the others as children. I still want to be surprised (but I can't stop myself reading news items like this one).Avatar Imagepansysbella says: They've kept alot the same!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!thxxxxx so much team of harry potter im prepared2 watch it jst lke reading it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! seriously CANT WAITTTTTTTT it's gona be epic!!!! luv they keep the scene where harry n hermione kissed~~they put in2 so much detail!!!!!!!Avatar ImageDarkmarkman says: I think voldy will kill wormtail for letting potter escape. This will happen probably towards the beginning of part 2. This makes more sense in the films since it wasn't established in POA that wormtail was in debt to harry. From the reviews on mugglenet, It doesn't seem that the film shows how regulus and kreacher get the locket. This will leave a gaping hole in the plot since r.a.b. was established at the end of HBP. I also REALLY hope we see Umbridge get a kiss from a dementor. This was left up to your imagination in the book, but I want to see the hag suffer.Avatar ImageReader511 says: I can't wait!!! This sounds like they are doing a pretty faithful rendering of the book. I hope Part II is as good (if not better).Avatar ImageMatea says: thank God for the flashbacks. they practically left us with nothing about horcruxes in HBP. Wormtail lives? ha.really?thats dumb.his death has some significance. and what I' really pissed about-no memorial for Potters!? great. like they don't mean a thing.Avatar Imagewhyalltheglitter says: It sounds amazing! But why doesn't Wormtail die? I wanted to see that!!!Avatar ImageCatherine says: WOW! it sounds really awesome!!!!!! they have a lot of things that are correct...more than in any other movie. however there are still tons of things that they changed...for example, not to sound evil or anything, but wormtail should die, and these voldy tornadoes and tsunamis are really weird!Avatar ImageFilmGirl27 says: Can't wait to see Dobby's "humorous interaction with Kreacher"! :P Should be fun!Avatar Image29puppy104 says: No, cheesing way! I can't wait!!!!!!Avatar Image29puppy104 says: And, Wormtail should really die. It's bothering me... Avatar Imagesomethingtolivefor says: It says •Harry and Hermione dance to Nick Cave's "The Children." Could this actually be Nick Cave's song "O Children"? Good song. very fitting if you really understand it. Avatar Imagepaskunia says: The Ultimate Battle needs a movie of its own so that the story can be played out on the screen without a lot of editing by Buzz and Hack Saw. So it makes perfect sense to end Part 1 just before the fighting begins. Anyway, a lot of what happens in the first two thirds of the book can easily be told within the standard length of an HP film.Avatar Imageget1nexttime says: I can't wait 2 see this movie!!!!Avatar ImagePotterChocolate says: HOLY WIZARDING GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!! THIS MOVIE-IS-GOING-TO-BE-SO-FREAKING-AMAZING-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImagePotterChocolate says: HOLY WIZARDING GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!! THIS MOVIE-IS-GOING-TO-BE-SO-FREAKING-AMAZING-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: Bloody Hell! That was fantastic! I have been left speechless........... I don't know what to say, that's awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! *Jumping around the room all excited...*Avatar ImageHPlover11 says: I read on SNITCHSEEKER that they cast young Lily for part II...GREAT!!!!!!! Avatar ImageGinnyW. says: No memorial to the Potters?!?! I'm shocked, I really wanted to see that! But, still curious... :)Avatar Imagedobbykreacherunited says: I'm really dissapointed that they didn't include the statue of the potter family in the film as it would have been a very moving shot to have seen Harry & Hermione standing before a scarless Harry with his parents..... But overall - a great sounding movie!! :)Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Patience, O Squeeing Ones. People are jumping to some conclusions here, based on inadequate information. We don't know for sure that Wormtail doesn't die; we just know that it wasn't shown in the rough cut. A scene so heavy in CGI effects as a closeup on the silver hand might not yet have looked liked enough of anything to be included. Also, I would not necessarily conclude that Xeno Lovegood deliberately breaks the Taboo to call the Ministry Death Eaters. It could just be a blunder; maybe this is the first point at which people find out about the Taboo. I would not be at all surprised if Yates decided that it would take up too much screentime to explain the moral ambiguity of Xeno's betrayal of Harry in order to ransom Luna. In the movies, quick, sketchy characters generally have to be uncomplicated good guys or bad guys; allowing the audience to feel ambivalent about a character is a luxury usually reserved for those who get a lot more scenes to develop nuance.Avatar Imagemuggle..andproudofit says: OHMYGOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would have liked to see wormtail die though.... whatever ahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!Avatar Imageeccentricalice says: Movie sounds beyond amazing as ever, and this has made me even more excited to see it!!! (If that's even possible). Shame that the statue in Godric's Hollow won't be there, and that Wormtail doesn't die, mais c'est la vie. Am quite interested to find out what on earth a 'Voldemort Horcrux tornado' is. The scene with Hermione obliviating her parents will probably set me off bawling. Sounds very sad ='(Avatar Imageeccentricalice says: Movie sounds beyond amazing as ever, and this has made me even more excited to see it!!! (If that's even possible). Shame that the statue in Godric's Hollow won't be there, and that Wormtail doesn't die, mais c'est la vie. Am quite interested to find out what on earth a 'Voldemort Horcrux tornado' is. The scene with Hermione obliviating her parents will probably set me off bawling. Sounds very sad ='(Avatar ImageJeannine says: SOUNDS AWESOME!! CAN HARDLY WAIT!! I know some people are upset because Wormtail didn't die just then ...but who knows he may get his just deserts in the next film....it doesn't bother me he doesn't die exactly at that time....this is a film versoion of the book and so for it sounds like almost everything it taken from the book...one or two varaitions are not a matter for concern...big deal.Avatar Imageblackhair says: Well i'm looking forward to DH 2 and i wanna know what are we gonna see in DH2 because most of the important incident are from Part 1 like Harry's escape from Privet Drive, Wedding and DE's attack,Kreacher's tale, Trio's successful breakthrough at Ministry and horcrux been found, Ron's outburst and his departure, Harry's visit to Godric Hollow and their dramatic escape,Ron's dramatic arrival and Horcrux being destroyed, Trio's visit of Xeno and escape,Trio's capture and been dragged to Malfoy Manor all this in Part 1 Means Trio's escape from Manor and Dobby's death(if this is not in Part1), Arrival at shell cottage,breakthrough at Gringotts, and the arrival at Hogwarts and final battle,then the epilogue which is not much and if the entire battle thing is abt 40 mins and rest could be another 40 mins which means only 80-100mins long DH2Avatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: @blackhair- Dan Radcliffe spoke about the scene where lily, Sirius, lupin and James lead Harry into the forest. plus, I believe we had solid confirmation of Geraldine somerville's return, and though lily appears elsewhere in the story, she was younger in those flashbacks.Avatar ImageHPlover11 says: @blackhair. DH2 will be 2 hours long.They added some battles scenes(in the book harry will not fight at the begining but Heyman said in an interview that in the film he will fight &they'll show how Ron and Hermione destroy the horcrux)Avatar Imageslytherin_1457 says: OMG! I CANNOT WAIT!!!! XD there are some differences.... but that was expected i guess. but i am certainly NOT complaining bout much haha.Avatar Imageslytherin_1457 says: can NOT wait to see part 2. it - to me- is the best part of the book. the 1st half of the book was very. slow. at Malfoy Manor it started to get good for me. so, i can't wait to see how they do that, and the last half. Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: I've only just discovered that the music for DH1 is being composed by Alexandre Desplat, not Nicholas Hooper. I can't help being a bit disappointed. I loved Hooper's score for HBP, especially his funeral hymn 'Ad Noctem', for Albus Dumbledore. I was longing to hear what he would compose for a certain other wizard near the end of DH2! I don't know much about Desplat's music. He composed the score for The Golden Compass, and I really didn't like the music for that.Avatar ImageMissHermione says: YEAHYEAHYEAHYEAHYEAH!!! That sounds SO amazing! The split seems pretty far into the book, though. WOW! I cannot WAIT for it to come out!Avatar Imagebookworm941 says: I'm super excited now. Is it November yet?Avatar Imagebookworm941 says: I'm super excited now. Is it November yet?Avatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: Well,from all the reports it sounds that this is really going to be the best film. For the first time i can't even complain about the changes,they seem alright(i'm unhappy that there's no potter memorial in Godric's Hollow,and i wonder how wormtail will die then,or if he does die at all).But i think this time they stuck to the book more than in any of previous films. I simply can't wait for november ,now( i just know i'll love that film :D) Avatar Imageronlvr44 says: wormtail lives?! whaaaaat?!Avatar Imagethundermountain7 says: it sounds extraordinary but i have to admit i didn’t read the whole thing. I want to what.Avatar Imagerotfang07 says: Hogwarts Radio have more details of the movie in an interview with Eric Scull who saw the unfinished version of Part1 with Emerson in Chicago. He is incoherent, apparently because he was exhausted, and the chat is 12-year-oldish and barely comprehensible to an English oldie, but there are some definite nuggets there, if you have the patience to suffer 50mns of it. The radio programme is entitled "the sideboob" in reference to an intimate topless Horcrux scene between Hermione and Harry. Apparently Eric was seriously taken with the scene. Avatar ImageDescartes says: Lyrics to "O' Children" http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/nickcavethebadseeds/ochildren.html Hey, little train! Wait for me! I once was blind but now I see Have you left a seat for me? Is that such a stretch of the imagination?Avatar Imageminerva-rules-uk says: There are lots of questions and plot lines still left hanging from The Half Blood Prince: how are the trio going to know about the Hufflepuff cup, and the Ravenclaw horcrux? What was the point of Snape being a half-blood Prince? How is it that Bill and Fleur get together - there was no Christmas with Phlegm? Having the film start with Dumbledore's funeral could have helped to supply some answers, but may be the script writer is going to be more creative - may be the books that Hermione summons from Dumbledore's study will have notes in the margins......Avatar ImageCcysf says: Oh my......I'm so excited. I want to see that NOW!! (Wormtail lives... it was better when he died)Avatar ImageCcysf says: "Hermione is shown to obliviate her parents, and make out her way out of the house. When she casts the spell, family photos on the wall are magically wiped of Hermione's presence" I'M GOING TO CRY WHEN I SEE THAT!!!Avatar Imagemystiqueminx says: They could have kept Hedwig s death as it is in the book,,,,i dint like the defending harry and dying thing....and i feel that harry/hermione dance is absoutely not necessary.........and they should nt be leaving wormtail alive,he should be deadAvatar ImageEmmaria says: wormtail doesn't live he'll dieAvatar ImageEmmaria says: that's so cool i can't wait and i don't want it to be over!! :(Avatar ImageGloria says: It's impossible for people who have not read the books to make any sense out of these films. Everything is left hanging in the air, unanswered and unexplained. It's just ridiculous. I hope they make A LOT of changes, because this sounds even worse than I thought. I suppose there's no point in reminding that demented script writer (and also the previewer) that there is a character called Snape who is rather important...? Does he appear at all in these last two films or is Alan Rickman's (surely excellent) work lying in the cutting-room floor? They seem to have wasted a lot of money on his salary, but worst of all, wasted his time and effort.Avatar ImageGryffindor_Girl_xx says: YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS HHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY THANK YOU SO. DAMN. MUCH *Accio November 19*Avatar Imagefindthefourth says: "Unleashing spiders onto the ground before Ron"... heh. That might make me giggle a bit, although that was SUCH an emotional part of the book.Avatar ImageHPlover11 says: @hermy- Why isn't the scene with Harry & Hermione dancing necessary? Avatar ImageHarrypotterultrafan says: OH...MY....WORLD..........this is seriously going to the best movie everr!!!!! i really can-not wait to see it!! ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh it's turning me mad!!! :PAvatar ImageJasonAnder says: Are you serious? If you are, you really have some major mental problems. The film sounds perfect. Stop asking for the impossible.Avatar ImageOh Neville says: You lucky bastard! :) I'm not reading it, due to the spoilers, but well done. Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: "It’s impossible for people who have not read the books to make any sense out of these films. Everything is left hanging in the air, unanswered and unexplained.

They seem to have wasted a lot of money on his salary, but worst of all, wasted his time and effort." FALSE. ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, FALSE! I understood the films perfectly from years 1-5 without reading any of the books.Avatar Imageizziewitch says: The film sounds pretty terrific to me. Except: it would have taken about 6 seconds to show Wormtail's death here; Kreacher's Tale is so important (and a part I particularly loved in DH), I mean RAB was referred to at the end of HBP movie; the reprise of the death of Harry's parents was awesome in the book and needs to be here; is there no discussion bet Harry and Griphook and Olivander? all of that, esp Olivander, is so crucial to the whole wand thing (Draco's wand I mean) and are they going to show Harry wresting it from him at Malfoy Manor? if not, then the end of DH2 will be meaningless, at least to anyone who hasn't read the books. I know the movies aren't the books, but still.... I do like that Hedwig has a more heroic death than in the book, sort of like when Fawke's saved Dumbledore at the Ministry in OotP (in the book not movie). And I do hope they don't have Hooper return for part 2; it needs a more epic composer, like P Doyle or J Williams, esp for the battle scenes and The Forest Again scene.Avatar Imagerotfang07 says: Detailed spoiler-ridden description of the whole film on Mugglenet by YuraGamer. All questions on the movie answered if you don't mind being super-spoiled. May the Whinge-Fest continue: "Oh to be young and to feel the love of literalism's keen sting." Except if it's fanfic of course, then one can butcher anything to one's heart's content. Ah, to be young again, and escape the discomfort of mind-numbing contradictions. Their repeating they have not chosen a composer for Part II means they, or the studio, want Williams back. Big big mistake. Part II will sound like a cross between Jurassic-Jaws-Jones and maddening muzak from a Disney Theme Park. Unless of course, Yates and Heyman have the guts to rein him in. But then, if that's the case, why use him? Come on Yates, let's see some Lancashire steel and stick with Hooper, Desplat, or Doyle, or any number of gifted European or Asian composers. Why drown out all the good work on HPII in a worn-out, predictable, Hollywood soundtrack? HP deserves so much better, and so do all true fans of film. Keep breaking new ground, please don't ruin it by turning the clock back. Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Be honest, Yoda: Were you truly able to deduce from what happened onscreen in 'Goblet of Fire' what had gone down with the two Barty Crouches and how they had been involved in Voldemort's comeback? I sure wasn't - even after having read the novel multiple times by the time I saw the movie. Several times during GoF I was left saying, "What just happened?" (especially at the point where Harry finds Barty Sr.'s corpse, then runs off to do the Third Task apparently without even mentioning it to anyone), and that was true in many other instances throughout the film series. Gloria's complaint about plot points "left hanging in the air, unanswered and unexplained" is very well-founded.Avatar ImageWimsey says: The details are fine for Potter fanatics, but Joe and Jane Public wants a story. Does the film tell any story? If not, then nobody is coming back for pt. II. More to the point, does it tell Rowling's story about the Greater Good?Avatar Imagekiwimci says: words. can't. explain... how... excited... WOW!!Avatar ImageWimsey says: Rotfang: I agree entirely about the composers. A random remix of "A New World's Symphony" gives you most of John Williams' scores. A more subtle tone-poem by one of the composers you list (I'd add Shore to your list, btw.) is what these films need. Avatar Imageizziewitch says: I bet they'll open DH2 with Harry talking to Olivander, that would tie the two films together.Avatar Imageizziewitch says: And Wimsey, yes you need subtlety -- for the Forest Scene -- but certainly not for the Battle for Hogwarts. And IMHO, Hooper isn't subtle, just boring and rather unimaginative. But that's just me! :)Avatar ImageTraceymmm says: Oh my fricking god! AHHHHHHH im so excited! Im abit miffed that Wormtail survives but his death is abit graphic so perhaps they did it so its more kid friendly? I want more info!Avatar ImageWimsey says: Subtlety is needed throughout. Shore's score was extremely subtle, but that did not preclude it from including sections of raw bombast. The trick is to be bombastic when appropriate: the "blasts" need to be very properly timed, rather than constant. The Battle of Hogwarts definitely needs subtlety: it probably will be way too long on screen, anyway, and non-stop 4th movement of Beethoven's 5th will make it seem even more interminable to Joe and Jane Public. (Remember, they are buying the vast majority of the tickets: we HP fans are only a small fraction of the people seeing these films.)Avatar ImageWhitty says: it sounds really bad but I'm just glad Hedwig dies!Avatar ImageWendelin the Weird says: Merlin’s Beard! I’m so excited! It sounds great!Avatar Imagedemonicxaura says: sounds really awesome....but harry's supposed to say the tabooed word when they're caught... Avatar ImageDawna says: Wormtail lives? Thats not right. Harry is supposed to say the taboo'd word, not Xeno. but maybe that cuts some time, joining when the DE come to the Lovegoods & when the Snatchers get them afterward...Not Potter Memorial, thats a bummer. Would have only taken a moment of screen time. I wonder if the island Dumbledore's tomb is on is at Hogwarts? He is supposed to be buried on the grounds. Well, I knew there would be some changes, but overall sounds fantastic!Avatar Imagerotfang07 says: @Wimsey. You hit the nail on the head. Repeatedly spot on. It's vital the music does not drown out the battle, which is W's stock-in-trade. God forbid we should be able to hear anything other than the boom-boom of William's ego. If they choose W it will be out of insensibility, fear, or sentimentalism, not hard-headed determination to let the acting and sound effects do the talking. In essence a loss of nerve on Heyman, Yates, and Barron's parts. W starts loud and just gets louder. The more lively the battle the less the film needs W's bombast. All the great battle scenes in film history have little to no music, never mind deafening drivel. Even Spielberg didn't have music at the beginning of 'Saving Private Ryan' and, however painful it may be for me to say it, the first 22 minutes of SPR are possibly some of the best representations of battle on film. Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: Wow, the final movie must take place in just one day, except of course for the epilogue part. I was expecting the split to occur much earlier. It all sounds really cool though!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: If only all the films were 4-5 hours long!Avatar Imagespiritbound says: OMG this sounds amazing. Though i have to admit i am proper gutted that wormtail lives. What i love the most about hp is the way it all interlinks, and from his life debt he was meant too take his own life!!!! All the rest sounds awesome though :D makes sense they keep their own voices so peopel know which is which. Avatar Imageale-expectopatronum says: blackhair- Sirius, lily and James WERE CONFIRMED to be in the Walk to the forest scene 1. Dan radcliffe confirmed Gary Oldman returned as sirius 2. The Actress that plays older lily said she filmed her scenes SO THEY WILL BE THEREAvatar Imagejedisakora says: Want to see it now!Avatar Imageizziewitch says: *Wimsey, who is Shore?Avatar ImagePrincessAngeles7 says: can't wait toooooooo.......... these spoilers r torture and the hp marathons of abc family tooAvatar Imagez999993 says: can't wait. malfoy manor is probably my fav chapter in the book. how does wormtail not die? Avatar Imageaccio_hp says: Is there supposed to be a full report from Edward?Avatar ImageAnishaPotter says: ... i am more excited than words can even explain HOLY SHAAATAvatar Imagejhangelgurl says: Excited to see this!!!Avatar ImageXy4Tonks says: OMG!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagebudgie says: Oh to be in Chicago!Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: I'm reading the indepth reviews on mugglenet and one of them made me cry, i'm not afraid to admit that i was really worried about the film (after what they did to HBP) but the reviews sound so perfect! It sounds exactly the way i was hoping it would be. Please WB please don't change anything from now until November PLEASE!!Avatar ImageLibby says: Why did they give Wormtail the silver hand if he's not going to redeem himself and be strangled by its evil enchantments? Lame. They could easily pan away from his hand closing around his own throat. No Potter memorial? Lame. Hope Dobby's death is sad and Kreacher's Tale is sad. Hope Hermione's torture is scary. I hope the scene of her obliviating her parents is short, because that's really not necessary to the story- just shows the sacrifice Hermione makes but it's not necessary. Man they like to edit weirdly, don't they? I guess no ghoul in pajamas? lol I always thought that was kind of silly. :) Otherwise it seems like it'll be okay. I hope we get a fully written and more descriptive report! But all this info is appreciated nonetheless. Avatar ImageLeathe says: Hey whatever I can pretend that Wormtail dies a horrible death-by-mechand off-screen at some point. We get to see Hermione obliviate her parents? We get to see Hermione's parents? Cool beans. I like Hermione's family, or at least the idea of them.Avatar Imageblueangelrapture says: Ohmigosh this movie sounds AMAZING! I wonder how graphic it actually is though. Rating could be pushed way up...Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: wowAvatar Imagejasmineflower27 says: AWESOME!!!!!! though it would have been better if they had kept the tribute of the Potters and killed Wormtail... Avatar ImageStarkidDeniche says: Godric! That sounds brilliant!Avatar Imagehermionenluna says: ooh i am excited!!!!!Avatar Imagenymphadoraelizabeth says: Wormtail must die! Surely thats there! Its important! I am listening to the comic con audio as we speak, and i just cant wait for this! Its killing me to wait for november!Avatar Imagesnapester says: I love how they did the last two movies and it sounds DH I will be phenomenal. Lots of people need to relax about Wormtail. Although it is a definate OMG moment in the book, perhaps showing someone strangling themselves on film doesn't make the cut for a PG-13 rating, I mean, they can't even show blood on Hermione's hand for an "all audiences-approved" rating.Avatar Imagekatz10 says: wait! does it actually mean that dan and emma kissed on the movie?! hell. i certainly hope so. that would be awesome specially for the harmonians. :DAvatar Imagenymphie196 says: I am sooooooooooooooooooooooo excited!!!!! How much longer?!?!?!?!?!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: It sounds AMAZING! But why is Wormtail not dead?Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: I hear a canon booming again...Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Shame about Wormtail, but overall sounds overally cool! SQUEE, SQUEE, SQUEE, SQUEE! CANNOT WAIT ANY LONGER! *HURRY UP NOVEMBER!*Avatar ImageFresca says: It sounds like they are leaving in all the important plot lines, and I am glad that the Durselys' leaving is included!Avatar ImageP90X says:

Avatar Imagehewy says: Wormtail stunned????? He was strangled by his own hand for crying out loud. Why something stupid like this when the original is soooooooo much more exciting and canon? Do these folks even read the original book??? In short "what the hell are they thinking???????"Avatar ImageBanjoBoog says: Sounds excellent, although I am surprised that Wormtail lives ... what's up with that ... maybe we have to wait until part two ... Avatar Imageliterarynerd says: I can't wait! This movie will be amazing! :DAvatar Imagelumoslove says: I'm so excited!! This sounds wonderful and (besides Wormtail living - WTH!) it all sounds exactly like what I was hoping for XDAvatar ImageMJBDE15 says: (*speechless*)Avatar ImageMJBDE15 says: i think we should all just think about the lack of wormtail's death in the first part of the movie, im pretty sure they'll kill him off in the second part and we never know, it might be exactly the same way as it was in the book, just father along. plus wasnt Dumbledore buried on the Hogwarts grounds not on some far off island?Avatar Imageserenalupinx says: WOAH! this has made me so much more excited for the movieAvatar Imagetoots2121 says: pretty good im glad that they didnt change too muchAvatar Imageharrypotter4ever16 says: I don't like how there was no funeral for dumbeldore in half blood prince and how his tomb is just on some island, but other than that, it sounds EPIC!Avatar Imageharrypotter4ever16 says: And what is up with no potter tribute? If your going to put that scene in the movie, you might as well put in full effect. Something's just wrong about it not being there.Avatar ImageJooooooolz says: Wow this movie is going to be just so incredible I'm so excited! If wormtail lives then when's he going to die?Avatar ImageDeona says: can't believe wormtail doesn't die! i kind of have mixed feelings about that...anyways, I CAN'T WAIT!!!Avatar ImageTmcMistress says: First, Wormtail living, at least for the time being, is not that big a deal. They might've been reluctant to show it onscreen because strangulation is a pretty horrible way to die. As for the tribute statue in Godric's Hollow, it's always felt to me kind of contrived and out of place. Outside of Harry surviving Voldemort's attack, what was so special about the Potters as opposed to every other family and person that died or was severely damaged facing Voldemort during that time? Shouldn't Frank and Alice Longbottom have a statue too, then? Preserving the house seems to me to be tribute enough.
