Title: Deathly Hallows -possibly two films
Post by: Storyteller on February 13, 2008, 09:37:29 am

I thought of this as I read, and reread, the last book. I have NO idea how they will get all the required material into a single film, even if it's as long as ROTK. Apparently, I'm not the only one thinking of it.

I heard that too. I don't know how they'll get everythingin, but making 2 films seems so odd, somehow. I don't know what they'll do.

The key, it seems to me, is where they break it. I'm trying to decide where the logical place would be. Where Ron comes back, perhaps? It's a fairly heroic and dramatic moment.

There are a number of possibilities.

Rach

Yep, it needs to be a cliffhanger if they do two films.

The dream is still alive! In fact, it's come true!

DH will be TWO films!

*Dances with happiness

Now they can include EVERYTHING! Whoopee!

Hugs,
Rach - who can't wait!

I also read the news on mugglenet! So great, I think it's really great idea to do DH in two parts. That way there will be enough time to explain everything. I was wondering, were would you guys stop teh first film?

Maybe after they broke into Gringotts and before they go and battle at Hogwarts, or otherwise after they return form the lovegoods and before they go to the malfoys. what do you think?

As I said before, I'm thinking when Ron leaves, as a cliffhanger, or when he returns as a sweet moment of comaraderie. (sp) ANything could happen, however.

Here's another bit. I'm SO EXCITED! I rarely am right about these things! LOL

I am quite pleased about this too - takes the deadline for when there will be nothing left further back. I think they do need 2 films really - they have to include all the detail for the grand finale. can't wait!

Oh god,2 movies ...i agree its sounda odd...but the movies are a little bit different from the stories,i guess that movie makers gonna change it to fit one movie...maybe..

Just read this on mugglenet.com:

An article here (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=44442) states that the release date for the first part of Deathly Hallows will be 19th November 2010!

Yes, it's still a long way off - but a date for the diary anyway! :)

I saw that. I'll have to put it on my calendar.

I am STOKED about this being two films! The first time I read it, I thought it would have to be split. There's just no way to get everything into one film, and very little that can be left out.

Hugs,
Rach

They could shorten it considerably if they'd leave out most of the camping scenes.

I just hope they don't wait a year between the parts, like with the LOTR movies.

They simply MUSTN'T leave out the scene where Ron returns! That's absolutely critical because he detroys a horcrux!

Rach

I don't think they will - you're right, it's crucial to the whole story, not to mention one of the best bits! :)

I bet it is at least a year between the two of them.

Except, of course, it won't be a true cliffhanger. We all know what happens. ;)

I still don't get why they can't put Deathly Hallows in one movie. I know its going to be a long book, but I love long movies :)

I hope nothing bad happens in the film... like what I heard ' someone dies ' :'(

Title: Re:Deathly Hallows -possibly two films
Post by: Nutella Sister on June 06, 2008, 07:38:05 am

[color=Purple]Looks like you still haven't read the last one. It's very long in the story and it has so many detail soit'll be very shortened and very summerized if it takes part in one part!
--I got confused myself with what I said ::) :P -- [/color]

Title: Re:Deathly Hallows -possibly two films
Post by: Storyteller on June 08, 2008, 07:00:51 am

Well, as to something bad happening, we already know that, if we've read the book. We know who lives and who dies.

Somehow, the films are still enjoyable wven when you know the end! LOL

Hugs,
Rach

IF they do two films, the first film should end when Ron 'rejoins the trio' if you guys know what I mean? ;) Then the 2nd part can commence with renewed solidarity between Harry, Hermione and Ron and the hunt for Horcruxes can continue in earnest!

Not exactly a cliff-hanger, but if I recall it's sort of near the half-way point in the story, and it would enable angst, uncertainty and high drama to unfold, then be somewhat resolved with a 'happy ending' when Ron and H... well, you know ;) ::) :-X

Title: Re:Deathly Hallows -possibly two films
Post by: Storyteller on June 09, 2008, 07:47:11 am

That's certainly the place I would pick. It could end the first film on a happy note, and yet leave the ultimate cliffhanger for the second.

Rach

Heh, I like the way you did that, especially since there are two "H's." And cool things happen with Ron and each of them. ;)
