Video: The Last Days of Shooting Harry Potter Featurette


Jul 02, 2011

Posted by John Admin

Yet another video featurette has come online this evening, this time a compilation of the cast and crew’s thoughts on finishing the films as well as footage from the last day of filming. We see David Thewlis (Remus Lupin), Alan Rickman (Severus Snape), Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid) and more cast members wrap filming on set, and the video also includes some clips from Daniel Radcliffe’s speech upon wrapping. You can watch the featurette here on YouTube or embedded below (you might want some tissues at the ready):

Though they were saying goodbye, the magic lives on.Avatar ImageNatalie says: Oh my God! The hug at 2:48......I am crying so much right now... It's like we are hugging them too for all these beautiful years that they've given to us... I need this clip in a high-res version, NOW!!!!Avatar ImageSpinnersLibrarian says: Snape & Lupin together at Hogwarts? This surely must be a part of the Prince's Tale. Perhaps they explain just why poor Severus was ritually humiliated every year by being (necessarily) refused the DADA post when he should have been Dumbledore's first and only choice. Just a thought!Avatar ImageDlcohm7 says: Oh lord this is going to be sooo difficult for the whole world this month.But what a beautiful thing it has done for us.I cried immediately watching this.Especially with Alan and David.Then Dan makes his speech,the trio hug.wahhhh!!!

Harry Potter and all has been a comfort and a love of mine, and I adore Dan, Emma, Rupert and give all of them my love, and support. Thanks to Jo who started it all. But, man, this makes me cry! I will have to take those boxes of tissues too, believe me.Avatar ImageGene L. says: I cry like a mentally disturbed infant...Avatar ImageGene L. says: I'm telling you my crying is no better than a mandrake... man it's been 10 years or so. I just want to tell you guys how lucky I feel to live in the age of Harry Potter, being able to grow up with it is something no other children born at other times can ever experience. Be proud to be the Harry Potter generation, wands up guys!Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Aaaah! Very touching. @SpinnersLibrarian, they may have been filming different scenes on the same day.Avatar ImagePenelope_C says: Very touching...Avatar Imagemoglet says: @SpinnersLibrarian, they definitely film more than one scene each day, there are several stages and sets being used each day, you could never get a film made if you didn't. This is a lovely touching video, really hope that we get this and more on the DVD when if finally comes out, it's wonderful to see the cameraderie, and to see how special working on these films was to so many people.Avatar Imageizziewitch says: Oh, how I'm going to miss them all. Don't see how I'll get through the movie, if just watching this makes me cry. As everyone else has said, must bring LOTS of tissues. Their hug at the end ... oh my.Avatar Image2tal says: An amazing journey with an incredible group all together telling one of the great stories! Made possible because they all worked so hard to stay true to the original material. In no small part because JKR set clear boundaries and guided them and worked with them.Avatar ImageStarGirl11 says: this is one person who didn't think she would cry and then proceeded to cry both times she watched the video. I need to make a note to pack tissue packets when I go to the midnight show. Between me and my friends most likely we will be crying our eyes out.Avatar ImageHelloWorld says: I'm just so sad for them all. 10 years of being a family, and they will always be a family. But it feels like that moment a kid moves out of the house. Something changes for them. So sad. Avatar ImageMniskew says: i cried! i never really thought of it being the end cuz i only really got into it last summer but this really did it! its just crazy that its the last one and its over!! :( and emma was right...they truly are blessed! but everyone in all the movies did a WONDERFUL job on everything! thanks for everything!

Avatar Imagehewy says: Thank God they warned us to have tissues handy!! Lord know I really needed them. Watched several of the shorts about the last day of shooting and bawled! Had to stop watching so could write this and see it - tears do have a way of making the vision blurry.Avatar Imagekiwimci says: First time I cried at one of these featurettes, It was Dan saying "I love this place."

Sad to see it go...Avatar ImageEve13 says: I cried!Avatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: this made me sob my eyes out. only 12 days left now.Avatar Imageksddancer says: This was just so sad. They've all been together for so long and now it's just over. It's not gonna be the same after all of this. But Harry Potter changed me in so many ways; without it I would not be the person I am today. I can never repay them all for what they did. I cried through the video like many others. It's hard to believe that they used to be so young an now they are grown up and going to see new people and things with out their supportive HP crew. I know a must I have to bring to HPDH Part 2: tissues. :) Thank you HP and leaky! It's been a terrific experience!!!!Avatar Imagefreya_xanthe says: this almost made me cry... :'(Avatar ImageSnivellus0325 says: that was horrible enough to watch this 2 minute clip...cant imagine what it will be like at the end of DH part 2Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: OMG that was so sad!

They are apart of our families, always will be.Avatar ImageEeyore says: Wow! You weren't kidding when you said to grab a few tissues. I should have taken that advice to heart. It makes me wonder if I'll be able to really pay attention to the movie or if I'll be thinking about it being the last one and what that really means.Avatar ImageHalfbloodPrince08 says: INCREDIBLE... !!!!!!!!
