Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

"What do you know about the Deathly Hallows?" A new behind-the-scenes featurette looking at the story elements of Warner Bros' upcoming two-part adaptation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has debuted on SpoilerTV (via Collider). This video really makes the movie look as amazing and as epic as I am hoping, especially because the story is such a vital part of everything that happens in this finale, and it looks like they're putting as much care and concern into it as they possibly can. Plus, it's always exhilarating getting a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes world, especially for a film like Harry Potter. Watch & enjoy.

Watch the featurette on the "Story" of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows from YouTube:

Watch the incredibly epic first full-length trailer for Deathly Hallows right here if you haven't seen it yet.

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows is again directed by British filmmaker David Yates, of Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince previously. The script was also written again by Steve Kloves, of Sorcerer's Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, Goblet of Fire, and also Half-Blood Prince, but not Order of the Phoenix. This is based on J.K. Rowling's very popular series of books which have already concluded. Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part I will arrive in theaters on November 19th later this year!

This is not new . . . it's been on youtube for a month now. All the movie sites are reporting like this just hit. It was a featurette the showed during ABC Families Harry Potter Marathon some time back. There are two more featurettes that go with this one.

I doubt that reeft. I strongly dislike Emma Watson's new haircut. It's the same reason I didn't take a shine to the talented Carry Mulligan right away.

Eli on Aug 11, 2010


Dude Eli its her hair! Not yours man! lol. I think the Pixie works for her, I assume its her way to leave the potter series behind, and finding new ventures to pursue.

Xerxex on Aug 11, 2010


Well yea I I know. I'm just a little sad to see her break away from potter is all. It seems drastic but at the same time necessary for her to get away from hp. I do wish her and the rest of the hp cast the best outside of hogwarts.

Eli on Aug 11, 2010


As do I, I hope to see Grint, and Radcliff continue acting, Watson seems to be going the education route which I think is fantastic, but she'll probably have a good acting career as well. time to move on! Leave Hogwarts behind and find something new to read and watch.

Xerxex on Aug 11, 2010


xerxex - agreed. are you familiar with terry brooks * shannara* books? warner brothers has the option on those and it's said that "the elfstones of shannara" would be made into a movie first with "sword of shannara" to follow that. i love the books and would be as excited for them as i was for the LotR trilogy! brooks is a perennial best-seller-list author and has a huge fan base. i think those movies would do well.

beavis on Aug 11, 2010


No way xerxex. The kid from from Hook turned down a ton of high profile roles (many of which went to Elijah wood) to pursue an eductation. Look him up on Imdb. Jack. He's like a professor or something. lol. I was like that was a tacky move. I jus don't like to see actors and actressess leave their succsessful careers behind to pursue something else when they have so much to offer. I just have to get over it I know. My cousin is always talkin about Terry Brooks. I hear from other sources that they are okay, but I know people can be picky and don't know what they want sometimes. If I ever finish any of my fantasies, I'd want it to be adapted to the screen. I can see it now: The Peace Dragon Trilogy has won a total of 17 academy awards for pure badassery topping LOTR, Ben-Hur, and Titanic. LOL.

Eli on Aug 11, 2010


eli, he's like any author - there's going to be some critics. but it's exciting knowing that there could be some good fantasy movies other than harry potter.......i also read a rumor a few months ago about the "wheel of time" series might get a few movies - although i haven't read any studio has actually picked up the rights yet.

beavis on Aug 11, 2010


@beavis indeed I have! Never read his novels, my stint in the reading mostly consisted of The Count of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeer's, Frankenstein, Star Wars Shatterpoint, Harry Potter, Omerta by Mario Puzo (The Godfather), The Dragon Lance trilogy (The first novel which I read in three days!) Eragon, Eldest, and others. I then happened upon Brad Thor's novels which are fantastic. As for his novels making it to the silverscreen well I think it may be time to read some. Hopefully we will get to see The Redwall (familiar with those?) series makes it to the big screen. @eli in time you will. it is hard to fathom an actor/actress breaking away from the acting game, hopefully she'll be like Natalie Portman who graduated from Harvard with a bachelor's degree in psychology, "I don't care if college ruins my career, I'd rather be smart than a movie star" I've always admired for that line. As for your stories good luck man! I know writing can be like pulling teeth I've had writer's block for sometime now!

Xerxex on Aug 11, 2010


xerxex -it'd be cool news for a redwall movie; but, is there movement on redwall? i've only heard rumors about it. have the rights been bought my anyone? there are some really outstanding fantasy novel series ("sword of truth" is another example) that could make some great movies. with the success of LotR - i hope something more grown-up than HP is made.

beavis on Aug 12, 2010


let's not forget all the failed fantasy movies out there. Redwall I like so but I never read wheel of time. They have yet to make a completely awesome time travel sci fi. Do you think Redwall would do so well after Mr. Toad or whatever it is that's coming soon? Don't forget about the dragon series that Peter Jackson was said to have been turning into a miniseries or something a while back. Some lady's books about dragons fighting napoleon or something. Thanks xerxex.

Eli on Aug 12, 2010


agree on the time travel sci fi film.......it's kind of like a good haunted house movie - why are those 2 genres so hard to get right?? as far as too much fantasy movies?...very possible, but the shannara stories are epici and span multiple books (like LotR) and they have a large fanbase - so, i'd say they're a safe bet. however, too much of ANY kind of genre isn't a good thing. it's what's happening with the abuse of superheros/comics right now. hey, you mentioned sci fi time travel and it made me think of a movie. although it's not strictly in the time travel genre - have you seen "buckaroo banzai "? that movie was made in the early 80's but it rocked.

beavis on Aug 12, 2010


I'll check it out. I used to like the time machine with guy pearce but i just watched it the other week again and it had a lot of plotholes and such. I would kill to have my Peace Dragon series turned into a or three films. I would want them to total 11- 13 hours run time in all. I think fantasy readers would like some of the characters I've created, especially the middle man who is purposely killed by the main character who becomes a dragon early on. The title peace dragon doesn't come from him doing good deeds. It's a little more political in a sense. He fights his brother and the dragon lord himself to inherit the title dragon lord. The dragons were at peace with humans at one point, but the dragons were on a quest; the humans made it nearly impossible for them to do what they were sent to do. All of my writings have huge histories, and some concepts that fell to the wayside over the years became part of that history. I'm so excited thinking about it. Maybe I'll start working on it again. Haunted houses are worn out. It's all about the history of the house, which in a lot of movies don't come into light until halfway through. By that time you're just like whatever, I'll settle for watching people get brutally murdered by some ghost or hellish creature. Maybe intergrate time travel with haunted house? Nah.

Eli on Aug 12, 2010


as far as haunted houses are concerned - you said it.......it's the history of the house - which is given maybe 1-2 minutes in most movies (not nearly enough). also, i've always felt there was never enough suspense/forboding early on before anyone actually arrives at the house. time travel with haunted houses? how about a house that sends people to other dimensions/time periods that aren't so nice?....meh - maybe your dragon story sounds pretty good. i like the fact that you're devoting time to develop an extensive history- that's one thing i love the most about good fantasy. if you enjoy reading, i think you'd like terry brooks shannara books (there are quite a few). he tends to write in 3 book trilogies about the shannara world and each trilogy expands on the history while connecting with other events in previous books.

facebook me if you want. Eli Grey.

@beavis its just wishful thinking on my part, but it would work. people love talking animals, and a bunch of furry little creatures with swords and english accents would be awesome. More adult oriented fantasy books would be a good thing, people just assume fantasy only works for children but that's simply not ture. @Eli welcome. I just want to see The Redwall series on the silverscreen, I mean there is so much potential in the stories of Redwall that is could be as good as the LOTR trilogy, we can't have Narnia being the only fantasy with animals out there. @beavis I think the Time Travel/Hunted House films fail due to lack of caring by the studio and director who only want a paycheck. I think the more fantasy on the big screen is just what we are missing, I remember all the 80's fantasy's that were in theaters i.e. The Neverending Story. We need more, imginations are dying with today's youth. @Eli you could be onto something there with your stories! Did you see the Amityville Horror with Ryan Reynolds? now it wasn't the best remake but Reynolds and the director seemed to care about the legend of the the tale and really created a suspenseful film. Perhaps we will see more in the coming years!

Xerxex on Aug 12, 2010


I did see it. I didn't know it was a remake until after I watched it. I was impressed with it I have to say. I usually don't like horror too much though. Don't ever watch House. It's a haunted mansion flick. Bad bad bad. I used to hate Ryan Reynolds but I think he's pretty cool now.

Eli on Aug 12, 2010


That movie really did prove that he can actually act, I began to really pay attention after Smoking Aces.

Xerxex on Aug 12, 2010


hey guys, ryan reynolds best movie (for me) up to this point has to be "chaos theory" - i loved it. amityville remake was pretty good - but amityville is getting very old. it wasn't really a haunted house - but "an american haunting" was very good. the most classic haunted house movie - the early 60's movie called "hell house". hey xerxex......80's fantasy?.......remember time bandits?.......great fun!

beavis on Aug 12, 2010


"Hell House" was crazy. Do I remember "Time Bandits"? who could forget what Terry Gilliam created with those Dwarves!? Speaking of Gilliam beavis, have you seen "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus"? great fantasy film!

Xerxex on Aug 12, 2010


i haven't seen that yet.............i was really bummed at heath ledgers death - he was such a great actor (if you haven't seen him in "candy" - WATCH IT!!). it seemed odd watching him in "imaginarium" knowing he's gone. i'm going to see it though! glad to see you remember time bandits and hell house. hell house scared the crap out of me as a kid (still creeps me out a little today). if a quality director focused on the atmosphere and suspense (and NOT a bunch of blood) - a remake of that would be great.

beavis on Aug 12, 2010


The Imaginarium was very good and "out there" I think you'll end up liking it, Colin Farrell will surprise you. Ledger was great for his part. Time Bandits was awesome, an instant classic! Pinhead (just him, not the film) always creeped me out! but one film that really stayed with me was Jacob's Latter Tim Robbins was amazing, then Pet Cemetary. A remake I would love to see is "Hellraiser" after watching Tom Hardy in Bronsan I immediately thought he should play Pinhead in a remake and get Brad Anderson (The Machinist) to direct and have Scott Kosar (Penned the screenplay for The Machinist) write the script. That would be badass! I for one hate the overuse of gore in films nowadays, unnecessary to be honest.

Xerxex on Aug 12, 2010


Looks cool to me! 🙂
