More Harry Potter movies than you bargained for...

Just Like Magic: Next Potter Film Multiplies

Harry Potter fans at the edge of their seats in anticipation of the final film installment are getting two movies instead of one.

Warner Brothers said Wednesday that the series' final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, is so long ? tallying 784 pages ? that the filmmakers decided to split it into two pieces. According to the Reporter, instead of compromising the storyline with excisions or making an exceptionally long movie, the flick, to become parts one and two, will be shot back-to-back for releases in November 2010 and May 2011, respectively.

J.K. Rowling's Hallows sold more than 11 million copies in its first 24 hours on bookshelves last fall, so the film version x 2 seems to = excellent profits for Warners, plus extra thrills for filmgoers (especially since teen superstar Daniel Radcliffe's signed on). Are you excited for Harry times two? Or ready for Hogwarts to wrap it up? ? Anna Dimond

i'm good with it.

it's not like i read the books... and it just makes 8 movies instead of 7.
I really wish they did this to Goblet of Fire. I could be wrong, but I believe it was the longest of the series. Too much good material was cut.

Mind you if OotP got 2 films it might not have sucked so badly.

I would watch 15 Harry Potter movies...
I think they should have made 2 movies at least from each book.
I am a bit disappointed that my history on fanedit.org is nowhere mentioned anymore. It was 5 years of my life.
I agree with you boon. Although I really dont understand this move. The last book IMHO could have been condensed the best. Goblet, Order and Prince all needed 2 movies, especially Goblet.

so with 15 HP movies, Dan, Emma, & Rupert will be about ...45 Wink
I am cool with this to,can never get enough Harry Potter.
i wonder how the titling will go? part 1 and part 2, or will they come up with their own stupid names. Looks like I do have to go back and fix my cover art for ADM's extended series Smile
If I were condensing the final book, I would have actually removed the Deathly Hallows plot line entirely.
The book can works just fine it. It seemed like a pointless detour.

Mind you then you wouldn't be able to call the movie HP and the Deathly Hallows. It'd be Harry Potter and the Dark Horcruxes or something.

I'm more afraid if they have extra time that they'll expand on Dumbledore's relationship with Grindelwald a la Rowling's comments. (Not that there's anything wrong with that, but come on...)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Stag Film
Hrm. Now they have the room to stick to the plot like glue!
Editing something.
