Final Potter release

02.26.2009

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows As most of you know, in an effort to milk every last drop of box office cash from the J.K. Rowling adapted HARRY POTTER franchise, the final adventure in the series, HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, has been split in two. Though the "official" reason is that the book was simply too long to condense into one film. The first part had previously been given a November 19th, 2010 release and now Warner Bros. has decided to release the second part on July 15th, 2011. And as soon as they realize that after July 15th, 2011, they won't have any more theatrical HARRY POTTER money, they'll likely panic and decide to only release the first half on July 15th and release the second half around Christmas or something. Then another panic will ensue and they'll split that half in two and things could drag on like this for at least another five years. The latest to hit theaters, HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE will do so on July 17th.

Extra Tidbit: Rowling had also considered naming the final book "Harry Potter and the Elder Wand" and "Harry Potter and the Peverell Quest".

With all the other books, they could take various liberties (i.e. cutting certain things, adding and tweaking a few things, etc) but with Deathy Hallows it is imperative that they stick as close to the book as possible. The vast majority of it is 100% crucial and can't be cut or changed too much or it'll completely screw up the storyline.

Although Halfblood Prince looks incredible, I truly hope it isn't pussified (the PG rating worries me a little). Deathly Hallows absolutely can't afford

order of the phoenix was the longest book, but also the shortest (so far) film. But that book was also a lot easer to get rid of stuff, plus a lot of it is Harry's inner thoughts. So I really dont think they are cutting DH into two films strictly for more cash. Cutting out all the important information you would have to in order to fit it into one film would piss off a lot of fans and make a bad movie. I am more than happy to pay double the money for my DH experience.

Two parts was the only way to do the story justice. It's no more about money than is the idea of making the hobbit into 2 movies.

Never seen a whole movie or read any of the potter books

I tried watching the first 15 minutes of the first movie and just couldn't get into it.

On one hand I don't like that they split up the time difference by such a decent gap...

But on the other hand, I'm glad they've given them all the space needed to tell the full story. The final book was packed with action and and details in the main plot.

While the other longer Potter books waited half the book for really important things to happen, Deathly hallows has something happening all the time. There is shit happening in the first few chapters. I'm glad they are splitting it up, maybe they'll leave less out this time.

@thembones..It all depends on Rowling, she won't give those characters up that easily and she would have to if they were to make other films. So I wouldn't bet on it....unless she gets a shit load of cash.

I can understand not wanting to leave anything out of the last book, because it's the last book.....as in no more. So it makes sense they would cut them in 2. I have no problem with it. The films keep getting better as they go along. I am looking forward to the final films.

For the heck of it...

Gotta confess, I've read or saw any of the "Harry Potter" books or films-ever. Is it all really that good?

Goblet of Fire was the longest

Let's just face facts that even with the final release of Hallows the Potter saga is far from over. The possibility of stories being set in between books also exists as well as spinoffs of characters. If we've learned anything about Hollywood is that stories or characters never die, they just get retooled, revamped and reimagined. We may never hear the end of Harry Potter. Can anyone say TV series?

Order of the Phoenix was a longer book, that managed to fit into one film, although I guess theres a lot of stuff in last book you cant just cut out like they did in the other films so who knows.

Sounds similar to what Tarantino did with Kill Bill. That was originally intended to be a single film until the people realized they could make twice the money if they cut it in half.

not paying for that

That's pretty stupid. I'll just sneak in if I want to see it (at least one of the two "parts").
