Want to see the final scene filmed for principal photography for the entire Harry Potter saga? The last time that the three principal actors worked together in the roles they began over a decade ago? Check it out below.
But be forewarned—it’s about as anticlimactic as it gets.
As /Film puts it:
“And while audiences still have one final Harry Potter movie to look forward to, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 on July 15, the three Gryffindor’s have long since finished filming. Director David Yates filmed both parts of Deathly Hallows simultaneously and, as it turned out, the final shot for all three actors actually appeared in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. The DVD of that film comes out on April 15 and, on it, there’s a segment that shows the filming of that final shot. ABC Family recently showed a snippet of that DVD feature and you can watch it below.”
So there you have it—some standing around, some jumping around with greenscreen work, and then more standing around. Never has the magic of movie-making seemed so exciting!
That said, and to reiterate /Film, it is a historical cinematic moment, no matter how everyday it may seem.
Will you be sad to see the Potter series end this summer?
