"Deathly Hallows" Film Split Revealed; Images of Xeno, Scrimgeour, Bagshot, and Gregorovitch Online (Update)

The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly features a cover story on the upcoming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" film, which, at long last, reveals the split for the final installments of the film.  High Res scans of the entire EW feature can be found right here thanks to RupertGrint.net.  The report features a number interviews with the cast and never before published information about the film.  A caution now to readers, for the rest of this post will contain SPOILERS!



The film, EW reports, "will end at about Chapter 24 of the book, with Voldemort gaining possession of the Elder Wand, one of the three Deathly Hallows that allow the bearer to conquer death."  The article goes on to feature quotes from many of the cast members and director David Yates, who speak in turn about bringing the conclusion of the Potter series to the big screen.  They also reveal details about the film; including the final scene the Trio ever filmed together.  Quoteage:
The three of them [Radcliffe, Watson, and Grint] are shooting a scene in the Room of Requirement in which Harry, Ron, and Hermione are searching for a Horcrux- in this case, a tiara-like Ravenclaw diadem.  Watson and Grint are sopping wet.  (In the film, Ron and Hermione have recently destroyed another horcrux in the water and were perused by a Voldemort-shaped tsunami.)  
As production on the two films wound down this summer, the three stars faced the prospect of having to film their final scene together.  "It was bizarre," Watson said last week by phone.  "Walking on to set that day, there was this incredibly thick atmosphere.  It felt like a moment in history.  It felt really big."  In the scene, Harry, Ron, and Hermione have broken into the Ministry of Magic.  They jinx a woman and drag her into a tiny storage area.  So the final frame ever shot of all three actors takes place in a cramped little room.  "These characters have been in the most fantaistical situations at Hogwarts- they've been in the Dark Forest, all these extraordinary places," says Yates.  "It was an odd way to finish, really."  But poetic, perhaps, considering that the whole series began with a boy who lived in a tiny room under the stairs of a house on Privet Drive.  "In a way," says Yates, "the series started with a cupboard and ended with one."
The full article can be read right here.  "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" will be in theaters on November 19, while "Deathly Hallows: Part 2" will arrive on the big screen July 2011.  The Fall Movie Preview issue of EW is on newsstands now.

Update: We now have this new photo of Dan Radcliffe as Harry Potter in formal wizard wear brandishing his wand.

Many, many thanks to our Order Partners, RupertGrint.net!

So, this post is going to talk about the LeakyMug that went on at Comic Con. Going by what Melissa and Andrew said, the final shot of part one could be Voldemort going into Dumbledore’s grave and getting the wand. From their descriptions, that sounds like an epic ending to part 1!

DOnt read if you dont want to know the split!

It must end with Voldy holding up the wand over Dumbledores bosy, that would be great! And I like that it ends just as Harry realises he’s not supposed to go hunting the Hallows. That was a big moment for him.

Are we gonna get to see Ron and Hermione destroying the horcrux in the Chamber???

but I AM a little confused about this so called “voldemort shaped tsunami”… maybe that is how they are going to make the cup defend itself? it sounds epic, but a little far fetched. tsunami? yeah, umm…?

hmm. I wonder…I think that’s the perfect place to split the films (very dramatic), but can’t imagine why WB would let EW publish that, since they’ve been trying so hard to keep it secret. Maybe it’s a “red herring” and the split will be some other place entirely.

floridianhp- Yates didn’t do anything wrong, he included something that was implied in the books, but not shown.

Hermione and Ron go into the Chamber of secrets and destroy the horcrux there. but we don’t know HOW they destroy it or what happened in there.
SO that’s what Yates ADDED a scene showing how ron and hermione destroy the Horcrux

so stop complaining

I like the tsunami effect! The cup had to fight back, as the locket did. I was always a bit disappointed that Jo didn’t write what it did as Hermione destroyed it.

also, it doesn’t say they destroy the horcrux underwater, it says there is a voldemort-shaped tsunami

which could work since it’s down by the chambers and.
it’s a big place, and it’s connected to the plumbing= water =
when the horcrux is destroyed it will cause a flood in the chamber

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesss! There is blood again on Emma’s hand!

I don’t understand why we have to see Ron & Hermione destroying the cup though. I wonder if Jo herself told them how the cup defended itself. I mean a tsunami…?

Guess That Book

The Patronus turned... It was a stag. It was shining brightly as the moon above... it was coming back to him... It stopped on the bank. Its hooves made no mark on the soft ground as it stared at Harry with its large, silver eyes. Slowly, it bowed its antl
