Radcliffe and Watson confirm "DH: Part 2" Ending Reshoots

HitFix has some new quotes from Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) confirming that they are re-shooting parts of the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" epilogue at Christmas:

"We are re-shooting some parts of it," Radcliffe confirms. "It was an interesting one. I think we made it very hard on ourselves because we shot it at King's Cross for real. And this time we'll  be shooting it at Leavesden on set. To have to rush that sequence and it's an important sequence, is not something any of us want to do." Radcliffe continued and reiterated, "It's a train station and people actually needed to use that platform. We made it very hard on ourselves and we really want a slightly slower, more measured pace next time."
Speaking at the "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" World Premiere in London last week, Emma Watson described filming in a real station as "stressful":
"I mean, you can imagine, we stopped trains when they said we could do the scene.  I mean, we are special - we are 'Harry Potter,'" Watson says in an intentionally sarcastic and light-hearted tone.  "We only had two days to shoot it and we needed so much more time than that. We have reshoots at Christmas."
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" is slated for release on the 15th July, 2011.

This won’t change the date for the release of part 2, will it? That is the only thing that I am worried about. After all, I want them to take as much time as they need, as long as it doesn’t change the date :)

Nice to hear that it’s not “really” over yet. ;-) Glad to hear that they want to do this right in the end.

I really hope they redo the make up a bit… from the pictures we saw of them filming the first time, they made them look a lot older than they’re supposed to be in the book. They’re only supposed to be in their mid-30s when the epilogue takes place…

I love that they are redoing it, but will Emma’s new hair cut affect it in any way?

I’m glad to hear that they are dedicated to getting the epilogue exactly right. I agree with jlo814-they made them too old looking for people who are only supposed to be in their mid-30’s. Perhaps they will tone down the “ageing” a bit.

Well, Emma wore a wig the first time they shot the Epilogue so she might just wear the same one she wore before. :)

That sounds…, well i don’t know what to think actually… They all said their goodbyes to the series and now they have to go back. Was the final scene that bad? I hope we get to see the difference in those scenes in the DVD extras.

Nice to hear that they’re that committed to the project :)
Hopefully they’ll make them look like people in their thirties this time, instead of their fifties.
