"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!

Well i think they have changed a lot
I think Ron/Hermione destroying the Slytherin’s Locket is what we are gonna see when they say the couple battle it out with Voldemort tsunami
The reason behind that would be as we know when Harry opens up the locket using parseltounge and Harry tells Ron to stab the locket and the locket tries to protect itself by creating false impersona of Harry n Hermione and tries to play with Ron’s mind that Harry n Hermione are together and finally they kiss which if done in front of Hermiione would be more effective then in Harry’s presence and i think its when Hermione and Ron would kiss each other unlike the final battle in the book
I think the timing of their kiss in the book was uncalled for and too rushed
and if my guess is correct then i think their kiss would be more purposeful and more beautiful

It says “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.” I think maybe as Olivander is telling Harry what he knows about the Deathly Hallows, which was in the first trailer, it will go back and forth between their discussion and Voldemort taking the wand, then end at somewhat of a cliffhanger :)

Harry and Ginny! The Dark Lord Ascending chapter! Xeno Lovegood! Oh my gosh. These scans are fantastic. I’m not going to read where the split is though.

So I see that Hedwig has been given a reprieve in Deathly Hallows? In the book, she is killed by the killing curse and Harry has to set her and the side-car on fire, but it appears here that all Harry will do is just release her into the skies…I think that’s a big change, and quite unfair. I mean, if Dobby has to die in this film, then so does Hedwig – both were important deaths that affected Harry’s journey.

Love the additional picture, but it doesn’t look like formal wizard wear. It looks more like a Muggle blazer…

Why they added the extra scene with Ron and Hermione and the Horcrux:
THE SPLIT IS QUITE FAR IN SO THE SECOND HALF WOULD BE SHORTER THAN THE FIRST HALF BY QUITE A BIT IF THEY FOLLOWED IT EXACTLY TO THE BOOK. THIS IS WHY THEY ADDED THAT SCENE AND THEWHY DO YOU LIVE?” ONE!!!!!!!!!! TO MAKE IT LONGER AND THEREFORE LONGER UNTIL IT’S ALL OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Understand now? They aren’t cutting or replacing scenes with these ones, they are adding them to lengthen the HP experience.
So STOP MOANING MYRTLEING!!!!!!!!!!
Thank You
That is all.

To Vicki the House Elf…Yeah, I know that I was pretty condescending in my last post (which is why I prefaced the whole statement by saying I would try to be “gentle”…believe me, I could have been much more vindictive, but what’s the point?). Sometimes I just feel a little overwhelmed by statements from other fans that I thought had been resolved or explained way back when Movie One came out. If you didn’t understand the process of a book-to-film adaptation then, that’s okay…you had the second film as an example. Then the 3rd, the 4th, the 5th…If we’re on the last Potter movie and you still haven’t realized that something will be getting cut and something will be added, and are still indignant about it, that seems a bit childish, so I guess I was sarcastically speaking as if to a child. I’m totally okay with people getting angry with how those scenes play out (they aren’t always good for the story), or if the acting is bad in a film, or if the special effects look lame, etc. But to criticize the fact that the film isn’t going to exactly follow the book, and not even give the director or writer a chance to show you a new vision, just seems silly at this point. Also, to Gryffindor Girl…you might have a point regarding the announced scene addition (I’m sure there will be many more) and its relation to the perceived shortened length of the second part of Deathly Hallows. But one can’t go by page count alone. Even though the first part seems heavily front-loaded (500 something pages) and the second part seems light (200 something pages), you have to remember that the first part features quite a bit of fleeing from Death Eaters, camping, packing up, moving on, camping again, etc. With a movie adaptation, often all those scenes (which might have taken pages and pages to tell in a book) are shown in some montage-like segment, usually amounting to a minute or two. And what seems like a light page count for the second part of the film…well, one has to take into account the fact that a battle which is described in a few paragraphs in a novel often takes much more time and effort to show in a film (the battle of Helm’s Deep is only a few paragraphs in the novel The Two Towers…in the film it’s something like 40 minutes long…same goes for the battle at the end of the first Narnia book). I think I’ve said my peace for the most part, but just know that even with two whole movies to play with, stuff will get cut out of the storyline and replaced with other scenes, or moved to a different section then it originally was, or have something added to it that wasn’t there previously, and it’s not just because of length. It’s because a movie has completely different pacing than a novel, and sometimes things which work on a page just don’t work in the movie, no matter how one tries.

Sorry those posts were so long, I tend to get carried away. I’ll try to keep it short from now on…
