Photos: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1

They have released new photos for the latest instalment of the Harry Potter films.  In my least charitable moments I start to think that is because they need to sustain interest in a series that perhaps hit its peak two or three years ago and then I remember what a massive Harry Potter fan I am.  Any misgivings I might have are pure fear that it won’t be a fitting end to the phenomena that took the world by storm.  I’ve consumed the books, audio books and films with ferocious greed and it is hard to imagine that I once picked up Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and put it back on the bookshelf, dismissing it as a children’s story.  I loved all of the films except for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.  Perhaps I should watch the film again to see if I still feel the same way?  After all, I did go to see the film immediately after finishing all of the books (again).  Perhaps it would be best to judge the film on its own merits and not based on the books?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I will be released on 19 November 2010 in the USA and UK.  It has just occurred to me that perhaps the most responsible thing to do will be to take the day off work so that I can go to a morning show.  I’m quite certain my colleagues wouldn’t appreciate me moping around all day while I obsess about the fact that the rest of the world will be watching the film before me.

Back to the images that appeared in EW magazine.  What I love most about these photos is the costumes.  I love Hermione’s witchy attire the best; it looks so authentic!  My favourite photos are the first one of Hermione and the last one with the Malfoys and Beatrix Lestrange.

  1. I wasn't too impressed with the Half Blood Prince either and hope the Deathly Hallows will satisfy better. I came to the series late, after everyone else in my immediate and extended family had read all the books and listened to them again on tape and cd, but am glad I did. I feel that the lag in making/releasing the movies has hurt the franchise. I think they should have made the last three or four movies all at once, just as the Lord of the Rings series did. Then the movies could have been released on a better schedule and the cast wouldn't look like they belonged at university instead of high school.

  2. Am I the only person in the world that has never watched a Harry Potter movie or read any of the books. I have seen about 3 minutes worth of clips and that’s it...

  3. @ Kathryn: Me too! Far more excited than is reasonable!

    @ Usha: Yes, stylistically, it is looking great. The costumes and use of colour look fab.

    @ Clueless in Boston: I really need to figure out your first name! Perhaps I can call you CAB? I also came late to the series as i only beganreading the books in 2005 when I saw Goblet of Fire. I had seen all the films but didn't have a clue as to what was actually going on!! And agreed - they are all looking pretty old.

    @ William: You might be, yes. They are really good, really, really good. I would recommend them! Just give Philosopher's Stone a try (I'm like a dealer, aren't I???)
