Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is an upcoming two-part fantasy film adapted from the novel of the same name by J. K. Rowling and scheduled to be released on 19 November 2010 (2010-11-19) (Part I) and 15 July 2011 (2011-07-15) (Part II).[2][4]

The two movies, Part I and II, will be the final installments in the Harry Potter film series. Both parts are written by Steve Kloves, who wrote all but the fifth film, and directed by David Yates, who directed the previous two films. David Heyman and David Barron are producing both parts. Production shooting began in February 2009 and is expected to end in May 2010.[5] Both parts will be released by Warner Bros. Pictures in 3D, as well as 2D on their individual release dates. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be the first entry from the series to be in 3D for the entire length of the movie.[6]



On December 24, 2009 (2009-12-24), Warner Bros. released a short synopsis of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I:

The final chapter of the Harry Potter film series begins as Harry, Ron, and Hermione leave Hogwarts behind and set out to find and destroy the Horcruxes, the secret to Voldemort's power and immortality.[7]



The decision to divide Rowling's final book into a two-part movie came from the original declined proposal to split Goblet of Fire in 2004. Deathly Hallows is being shot back to back,[8] and treated as if it were one film.[9] The idea to split the book into a two-part movie had been around since the middle of 2007,[10] but only came into serious consideration after producer David Heyman was able to talk to writer Steve Kloves when the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike ended and Heyman had Rowling's approval.[9] As of April 2009, Kloves began working on the script for the second part.[11]

According to Warner Bros. executive Alan F. Horn it will allow "an extra hour and a half to celebrate what this franchise has been and do justice to all the words and ideas in the amazing story."[8] Heyman described the workings behind the split: "Deathly Hallows is so rich, the story so dense and there is so much that is resolved that, after discussing it with J.K Rowling, we came to the conclusion that two parts were needed."[8] Kloves was not able to start work on the script until the WGA strike ended.[12]

"Years ago, we briefly — and seriously — considered doing Goblet of Fire as two films. So this concept is not altogether new. As for Deathly Hallows, I intuited — almost from the first moments I began reading it and certainly once I'd finished — that to realise the story in a single film was going to be a tall order. Others in 'the group' felt similarly. So the idea of two films began to get kicked around as early as late summer of 2007. We didn't take it lightly. But ultimately everyone felt that despite the challenges it would present, it was the most sound creative decision.
I'm sure some will think we're crazy. My wife looked at me cross-eyed when I first mentioned it. But I'm really excited about it because it should allow us to stretch a bit with the characters and give them the proper send-off. The story is highly emotional and those moments deserve time to breathe. And, personally, I feel we owe it to [author] Jo [Rowling] — in order to preserve the integrity of the work — and the fans — for their loyalty all these years — to give them the best and most complete experience possible."[10]

— Scriptwriter Steve Kloves, on the decision to split the final Harry Potter novel into a two-part film.

Before David Yates was officially chosen to direct the film, others had expressed an interest in the job. Alfonso Cuarón, director of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, had said that he would be "tempted" to return to direct.[13] Guillermo del Toro, who passed on Prisoner of Azkaban, had expressed interest in directing Deathly Hallows,[14] but an increased workload over the production of The Hobbit ruled him out of the project.[15]

Heyman noted that the films will be a closer recreation of the books than the previous films because of the length a two-part adaptation entails.[11] Daniel Radcliffe said: "This is a road movie, particularly in Part One of the film. People have been so used to seeing Harry Potter at Hogwarts and we're just not there for the first part of the film. That seems to have really freshened things up, and hopefully will get people seeing the films with fresh eyes again, because its just a totally different look when you're not just sat in the same room the whole time."[11]

Although Yates had retained composer Nicholas Hooper for Half-Blood Prince, Hooper has confirmed he will not be returning for the Deathly Hallows.[16] In July 2009, John Williams, composer of the first three films' scores, said that he will return as long as it fits with his schedule.[17] However, in January 2010, Alexandre Desplat was confirmed to produce the score for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I. [18] The composer for Part II remains to be verified.

Yates and Heyman have noted that some of the events of this film had an effect on the way the sixth film was written.[19]


The Shell Cottage constructed on Freshwater Beach West for the filming of Deathly Hallows.[citation needed]

Pre-production began on 26 January 2009 (2009-01-26), and filming began on 19 February 2009 (2009-02-19) at Leavesden Studios, where the previous six films had been shot, and Pinewood Studios.[20][21] Eduardo Serra is the cinematographer.[22] Yates said that the film will be shot "with loads of hand-held cameras. I want to shake things up every time I go into this world. I like experimenting as we go along."[23] The shoot will take a projected 250 days.[24] In October 2009, Ralph Fiennes started filming his role as Lord Voldemort. Many of the adult actors are also to begin filming by that month.[25] As of end of February 2010, Jason Isaacs has completed filming his role in the film.[26]

During production at Leavesden, Radcliffe's stunt double David Holmes suffered a serious spinal injury during filming of an aerial sequence, which left him paralyzed. Holmes fell to the ground following an explosion which was part of the stunt.[27][28][29]



Joshua Herdman announced on 9 August 2009 (2009-08-09) that Jamie Waylett would not be reprising his role as Vincent Crabbe for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Waylett's character will be written out with his role in the plot taken over by Herdman's character.[61]

Emma Thompson will not return as Professor Trelawney, opting instead to work on a sequel to Nanny McPhee.[62]

Jason Isaacs considered not returning for the film, before the book was released, as he was worried that the senior Malfoy would have very little screen time due to the character's imprisonment in the previous story. Meeting Rowling at an awards dinner he fell to his knees and said "'Get me out of prison, I beg you.' [Rowling] looked over her shoulder and looked back at me mouthing 'You're out. Chapter One.' And that was it, that's all I had to know, and I signed up immediately."[37]

Director David Yates has announced that, for the final scene in the film which is set nineteen years after the film's main story, older actors will not be cast to play the main characters. Special effects will be used to depict the cast members as adults.[63]

It appears that a mixture of special effects and makeup will be used to make the actors in the Seven Potters scene look like Daniel Radcliffe.[41]


The first official picture from the first film was released on 1 December 2009 (2009-12-01), showing Harry, Ron and Hermione in a London street.[64] Several short snippets from the film were released by ET Canada in early December. A clip from the film was leaked on 4 December 2009 (2009-12-04), and was released on 8 December 2009 (2009-12-08) with the release of Half-Blood Prince Blu-ray and DVD.[65]
