Director David Yates Gives Hint to the HARRY POTTER 7 Splitting Point

by Joey Paur


'Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince' is right around the corner and I couldn't be more excited to see the movie. As awesome as Transformers 2 looks it lacks in story telling which is what makes the Harry Potter films so good. Not only do we get to see great special effects but we get a solid story with fantastic characters that have depth to them, and great actors plying these characters as well. 'Harry Potter 6' has much more going for it.

In a recent interview director David Yates talks about the new 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' and what we can expect from the final two movies. As you know part six is done and ready to be viewed by the audience. They are currently shooting the last two Harry Potter films as we speak.

"We're here in the forest, we've just finished the scene where Harry, Hermione and Ron are captured by the Snatchers after being chased through the woods. The Snatchers are brutal and scary but they aren't the most intelligent of creatures.They're trying to figure out exactly who it is they've caught."

I'm really looking forward to seeing how this whole story ends.  As you know Daniel Radcliff, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint will all finish off the roles they started their acting career's in. It's amazing how fast time goes by and how much they have grown.

"They have been so stable and level-headed and in working with them I continue to be impressed by how keen they are to challenge themselves and to try new things to bring out the characters that they portray. They have become these engaging ambassadors for the films and the story. They have been endlessly enthusiastic. They want to see how good they can be in these roles. They haven't had their heads turned, either, by the fame and attention or any of it, which is wonderful for everyone to see."

Yates is then once again asked about where the seventh film will be split. This is a question that is asked time and time again, and it doesn't sound like he is going to give anyone a straight out answer. But, he does say that they have a splitting point and gives you a good hint at where it will be.

"Yes, I think we have. Things can change when you edit, of course, but the idea now is that it will be not long after the sequence that we are filming here today. That's what we're experimenting with. We've had three or four different ideas about where to cut off the seventh film. Traditionally, the movies have ended with a death or a bereavement, some sort of passage or arrival. This time we think we will end with more a cliffhanger. Again, though, that's the thought as of this moment."

So lets do a little research and then you tell us where you think the movie is going to end.

  • The splitting point will be shortly after the scene they are currently filming which is described above.

  • The splitting point will not end with a death, bereavement, or passage of arrival.

  • The Splitting point will be a cliffhanger.

So tell us where do you think they have in mind to split the film at this point in production?
