As a Harry Potter fan, I’m eagerly waiting for November 19, 2010 when the first part of the Deathly Hallows movie will be released in the US. Three years after the book release, we will finally be able to witness Harry’s adventures as he searches for Horcruxes. Since the movie is split in two parts, here’s what I’m most excited for in part one of Deathly Hallows.
How the split will be handled
Entertainment Weekly has reported where the split at the end will be. I’m excited to see how the ending with the split will occur. Will other events be moved so more of the book is included in Deathly Hallows Part 2? As it seems now, more then half of the book is included in part 1.
The Weasley Wedding
There will be a Weasley wedding at the Burrow in Deathly Hallows Part 1. We finally met Ron’s hilariously mean Auntie Muriel. During the reception, Harry discovers interesting information on Dumbledore’s past and gets his first look at the Deathly Hallows symbol. I’m hoping these parts will be included in the movie.
The Seven Potters
This part of the movie is sure to be a thrilling, exciting ride. Harry must escape from Privet Drive to ensure his safety. During the journey, the Order of the Phoenix is attacked by Death Eaters and even a flying Voldemort. I can not wait to see how Voldemort looks while he’s flying.
It’s the beginning of the end
It’s a bittersweet feeling. Ever since I first read Deathly Hallows three years ago, I have been imagining what it would look like as a movie. It’s amazing that Harry Potter fans get two movies from one book, but it also means it is the beginning of the end. While I’m excited for the movie, I’m also a bit sad this is the end.
The Ministry break in
Even though Harry is a wanted man, he, Ron, and Hermione break into the Ministry of Magic. They are following the only lead they have on the locket Horcrux. Unfortunately, it takes them right to the beloved Dolores Umbridge, who is nastier then ever. These scenes should be exciting and tense as the trio tries to escape after they are found out.
Snape as Headmaster
In the Deathly Hallows book, there is no scene where Snape is addressing the students as their Headmaster. In the movie, there will be. As a huge Snape fan, I’m excited that he has more screen time. I’m also wondering what he will say.
Camping doesn’t sound exciting, but in Deathly Hallows the trio is on the run and forced to lives as outcasts. They camp up and the down the countryside. During this time, many important scenes take place like Ron leaving and the trip to Godric’s Hollow.
Seeing what was changed or removed
As a fan of the books, I’m always interested in seeing what was changed or removed from the movies. Since Deathly Hallows is split, I’m hoping not much will be removed. Usually, I don’t have a no problem with changes here and there. In the Goblet of Fire movie, the dragon task was changed and it turned out to be more exciting.
The Dark Lord Ascending
The first chapter of the book will make an exciting and intense beginning for the movie. Voldemort is addressing his Death Eaters as they plan to capture Harry during his escape from his aunt and uncle’s house. The scene will set a darker tone for the rest of the movie as we see just how ruthless Voldemort is.
Going to see it at midnight
I went to midnight releases for the books, now the movies are the only midnight releases Harry Potter fans have left. It’s blast to go and see all the other die hard fans lining up to watch the movie. There are cheers when it starts and the excitement is palatable. It’s fun to dress up in robes and see what others are wearing too.
