Anything on that site is tongue in cheek.Avatar ImagethelonglostWeasley says: What? You have got to be joking! They are kidding right?Avatar ImageSeviately says: Well, we can wish...Avatar Imagecritterfur says: Come on, you guys know The Onion, right? It's satire, of the news variety. This is all basically making fun of the fact that the final book was split into two movies (but taking it to obviously ludicrous extremes). I dearly hope you guys get the joke. I personally thought it was pretty funny, and it's good for us fans to laugh at ourselves once in a while, right?Avatar ImageAlbertBaldry says: You know someone is actually going to believe that, more funny if they got the real Producer to do it, than it might be true. But come on The last four minutes of a Harry Potter movie is the Credits.Avatar ImageAlbertBaldry says: You know someone is actually going to believe that, more funny if they got the real Producer to do it, than it might be true. But come on The last four minutes of a Harry Potter movie is the Credits.Avatar ImageAlbertBaldry says: You know someone is actually going to believe that, more funny if they got the real Producer to do it, than it might be true.

Though I have to say I really loved their trailer... Please let it be true... *bangs head on the wall* don't even think about itAvatar ImageLivi22 says: Haha, wouldn't it be awesome if that were true!Avatar ImageAnnaGrace says: Ha, this was hilarious! Hermione action figure for the win. "And what's his brrom doing when he's not using it? Sitting in the corner collecting mildew. That's another movie." Brilliant. ;)Avatar Imagekiwimci says: Splitting Cameron Diaz's new movie Bad Teacher into zero parts and never releasing it! Genius. Merchandising thing was really funny. Can't believe how idiotic some people are who can't see the obvious humour in thisAvatar ImageFarahey Sama Kabir says: REALLY!ARE THEY SERIOUS!Avatar Image-MiriaM-777- says: hahahaha at first i was like "whaaaat, are they really gonna do that?!?" but then i realized that it has to be a joke xD that was so funny :D Avatar Imagehermioneginnyluna says: I cannot imagine having to watch that. I literally almost fell asleep watching the trailer.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: It has been a while since the last time... loolAvatar ImageEve13 says: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! That's so funny! I have to admit, when I first saw the words "Final Minutes Of Last Harry Potter Movie To Be Split Into Seven Separate Films", I was a little freaked out because in my opinion that idea is kind of stupid. But then I realized that they're about as likely to split the last few minutes into seven as Harry is to split his soul into seven!Avatar Imagebellbell127 says: i'm super happy that it's not ending, but that is still the stupidest thing i have ever heard, 4 minutes= 7 movies? CRAZY Avatar Imagealexweasley12 says: hahaha this is sooo funny ! but whats fun friday ? just wondering......omg and the merchindise thing is sooo funny too !Avatar Imagemoglet says: That's so funny, and I can't believe anyone is taking it seriously..or are you guys joking too?

All right I'm all for never wanting Harry Potter to end... but seriously? I'm glad this isn't true. All good things come to an end but don't get me wrong I'll definitely be one of the sobbing when it's over. ;,(Avatar Imageginny_weasley1998 says: Pssshh I knew it was a joke all along,,ya totally ! Duh,,,ppshhAvatar ImageRubeusHagrid says: Haahhhaaaaaa! I love that ;) Funny, but Lord I hope it isn't real, that would be sooooo boring! ;P By the way, final film is 125 minutes, (according to Mugglenet!).. Should be epic. Shortest of all but epic. Avatar Imagecloethebelatrixlover says: Ahhh.... the fans wish....Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: I actually believed this! That's hilarious! :DAvatar ImageErin Lovegood says: I love the Onion, even when they're poking fun at my beloved Harry. That was hilarious, especially a full movie about Harry gasping. HEHE.Avatar Imagecritterfur says: Maybe Leaky needs to point out that this is a satire piece. They shouldn't have to, but really! Most people seem to get it, but for even a few to be taking this seriously...people, come on! You're not fooled that easily, right? Right. There, I'm glad we got this all sorted out. Avatar Imagehalf-bloodprince says: As soon as they started showing clips of the Deathly Hallows Part 2 trailer, I stopped watching, because I never watch trailers for Harry Potter movies, so when I'm in the theater I haven't seen any of it. So that's why I didn't get it, I didn't watch the end. Once I skipped the trailer, though, it was so obvious that this was fake. xDAvatar ImageStephaniej says: Haha, this is pretty funny, and seriously people, this is a joke! a good joke, but honestly part 2: part 8........ I think we need an albus severus series, but lets leave the final four minutes (credits) to be played in one instalment. Avatar Imagejacket says: That's so funny, that's so funny, I love onion news.Avatar Imagedork88 says: I love the Onion, so funny, like a real Quibbler lolAvatar ImageBriannaWazHere says: Okay, I was about to say. Way to go Onion, or whatever your called. I actually thought the movie weren't gonna end for a moment and got a tinsy bit of hope. But I guess it would be stupid, but I would see the movie about the quidditch broom collecting mildew in the corner. Avatar ImageGueniveree says: I loved the part about the asymptote! I'll be sharing this video with my Calculus class on Monday.Avatar Imagehermi0ne_228 says: they put a lot of effort into this segment of *news*... :DAvatar Imageazaadpotter says: OMG that was completely AWESOME. Wish that would happen. I could have never asked for more ;)Avatar Imageluvgood84 says: is anyone else a bit skepticalAvatar ImageGene L. says: I don't get it, how can there still be 7 more movies?Avatar ImageGene L. says: I don't get it, if anyone actually try to extend the last 4 minutes of the film into 7 movies, I reckon it's as unrealistic as provocating a hippogriff.Avatar Imagejoeys_mommy says: When I saw this I hoped it was a Joke! Thanks Goodness!Avatar ImageDisneyDarling says: i am not saying it is not true but it is suspicous we all have to agree to that. I don't get if it is movies or clips or tv shows or what?Avatar Imagecritterfur says: Guys, I've already posted on this article two times, but I'll give it another go. THIS IS A JOKE. It is not real, it is a satirical piece by The Onion, which has existed for quite a while now. The Onion basically puts out fake news but do their best to gussy it up and make it look semi-real (and one of the jokes is the fact that the average 24-hours news cycle channels, like FOX News, are that close to being parodies of themselves as it is). There is one movie left, sad as that may be. I'm frustrated beyond belief that any of you are taking this seriously (unless you're purposefully pretending to do so to add your own bit of sarcasm to the whole thing). How absurd does an article have to get before you understand that it's either sarcasm or satire (or both?). Would you believe the moon was made out of cheese just because it appeared in an online news heading? I'm sure most of you are skipping through other people's comments and ignoring the fact that it's being pointed out to you that it's a joke, how and why it's a joke, from whom the joke comes, etc. Sigh. There, I've said all I'm going to say about that...Avatar Imagecharissekin says: Mouldy broom in the corner movie... How long would that movie be. Who would be the star? Any special effects? Didn't think that Americans could deliver comedy so straight-faced, and not disclose the true meaning.Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I love this!!Avatar Imagesboyer06 says: oh wow lolAvatar ImageNosillaNocturnal says: This is so funny. Many people (who haven't read the books) seem perplexed that there are 8 films total (that's a lot). This is poking fun at that along with the fact they make tons of money off of these movies. The "trailer" was so dead on and so funny! Keep milking the potter fans! LOL Love the onion.Avatar Image1HarryPotterFan123 says: lolAvatar Imagemencia says: yeeeeeeeeppppppppyyyyyyy great stuffffffffffffffffffff i'm so happpppppyyyyyy *smiling*Avatar Imagemencia says: they have time to make up such things and fool fanssssssssss but HP will never really end for the true fans because they will keep the spirit aliveAvatar ImageHalfbloodPrince08 says: :DAvatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Lol I don't want Harry Pottter to end but I'm glad it hasn't turned into that :DAvatar ImageSybilT says: Incidentally, did you hear that the last Twilight movie will be split into two parts? I wonder where they got that idea!Avatar Imagecritterfur says: Yep, Twilight is being a big copycat. Even though I'm sure the extra money played some part in splitting Deathly Hallows into 2 films, I still believe the producers when they stated that there was just too much exposition and plot to fit into one movie. I haven't read the Twilight books, so I'm no expert, but the bits and pieces I have read seem to indicate that the plot of the books is kinda shallow; I'm thinking that the last Twilight book isn't so massive and complicated that it has to be split into two parts. Of course, if anyone points out that it's probably being done for money (and to make a shorter series than Harry Potter seem longer and more epic) then the Twilight producers claim that the Potter producers only split Deathly Hallows for money reasons. Sigh. Avatar Imagepopspops says: What does it mean by splitting the last four minutes into 7 seperate films??Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: That really was quite funny, and it's a good thing for us fans to be able to laugh at our own obsession. In the words of our favorite sage, 'It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that.' All the same, I hope to see a much longer series of remakes someday - perhaps one TV mini-series a year, each covering one volume. For that I would even break down and subscribe to cable.
