I think it's good 'cause then it will have almost everything in it, but I hate that we'll have to wait a year between to watch the second part.

well, it's better to split it into two than making a 7th movie shorter... there are lot's of important scenes in the book or should i say all scenes are important... i prefer that way than watching a movie and be disappointed coz there are lots of important scenes in the book that are being deleted or cut in the movie.. like what they did to the previous movies...

Harry Potter's Deathly Hallows Split in Two

The final installment in the Harry Potter book series will be split into two movies according to Warner Bros. Deathly Hallows is the seventh and final book in the widely popular Harry Potter series, but will be the seventh and eighth installments in the movie versions.

Deathly Hallows did not end up being the longest book in the series, but there was much to cover. Warner Bros has decided that in order to do the series justice its final book should be viewed in as much detail as possible. The movies will be released six months apart, though filmed concurrently. The seventh movie is set to release in November of 2010, while movie number eight will release in May of 2011.

The split of this beloved book leaves many fans with mixed emotions. Along with the expected excitement comes the din of unsatisfied, worried fans. The placement of the impending split has not as of yet been announced. Yet it only stands to reason that the split will come at a very inopportune time. Cliff hangers, after all, are used to leave the audience wanting more.

But will this cliff hanger leave a dirty taste in the mouths of the not so die hard fans? There is already so much criticism of the books and movies for the theme alone. Throw into the mix the fact that the author, J.K. Rowling, has admitted that the most beloved of professors was actually a gay man that spent many hours alone with the under aged characters, and this movie already has a growing opposition.

In recent years the protests of witchcraft surrounding these books has died down a bit. But with the growing darkness and increasingly higher ratings given to the movies, and the light shed on the sexualities of the characters, the next few movies should see again and increase in the materials coming out to speak against Rowling and her made up world.

Official: Two Parts for "Deathly Hallows" Movie, David Yates to Direct Both Films

Big News everyone! The L.A Times is reporting an exclusive today: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be made in two films, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" , and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II. Furthermore, the paper cites producer David Heyman confirming the return of David Yates as director for both films, with Steven Kloves to finish out his duties as screenwriter for both Harry Potter movies as well. The movies are to be filmed at the same time, and will be released several months apart, with Part One due November 2010, and Part Two, May 2011.

Update: The article has additional information now, with quotes from producer David Heyman on his conversation with Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling on splitting the book into two films. "Heyman said he approached Rowling with some trepidation about the strategy but found that she signed off on its logic rather quickly. "I went to Jo and she was cool with it," Heyman said, "and that was quite a relief."

The newspaper continues saying "Producer David Heyman said the decision was made with some anxiety and only after considerable deliberations. The producer joked that "while my wife and Warner Brothers were pleased" to hear that the Potter movie magic will continue into the next decade, he himself fretted that the cynical observers would see the decision as a purely mercenary move."I swear to you it was born out of purely creative reasons," Heyman said during an interview in a converted airplane factory outside London that has been home base to all of the "Potter" productions. "Unlike every other book, you cannot remove elements of this book. You can remove scenes of Ron playing quidditch from the fifth book, and you can remove Hermione and S.P.E.W. [Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare] and those subplots . . . but with the seventh, that can't be done."

Actor Dan Radcliffe who portrays Harry Potter in the film is quoted as saying "I think it's the only way you can do it without cutting out a huge portion of the book," Radcliffe said recently during a break on the set of "Half-Blood Prince," the sixth "Potter" film, which is due in theaters on Nov. 21. "There have been compartmentalized subplots in the other books that have made them easier to cut - although those cuts were still to the horror of some fans- but the seventh book doesn't really have any subplots. It's one driving, pounding story from the word go."

Of interest to many fans is the spot in the book where the films will break, and producer David Heyman addresses this as he notes: "The question will be, where do you break it? And how do you make them one but two separate and distinct stories? Do you break it with a moment of suspense or one of resolution? These are the interesting challenges. But each book has presented its challenges."

Warner Bros. Chairman Alan Horn and Jeff Robinov, president of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, are expected to discuss the new plans for "Potter" on Thursday during a presentation at ShoWest, the convention of movie exhibitors in Las Vegas.

UPDATE 2The LA Times has a second story now online, containing new comments from WB Chair Alan Horn on the decision to split and the additional film time for the story "This way, we have an extra hour and a half, at least, to celebrate what this franchise has been and do justice to all the words and ideas that Jo has put in the amazing story," Horn said. "This is the end of the story too. We want to celebrate it. We want to give a full meal." Mr Horn continued on, remarking about the epilogue to "Deathly Hallows" regarding the beloved trio and how that would be translated to the big screen. "Horn said that particular denouement has the filmmakers fretting about how to keep the young familiar stars on the screen just before it goes dark. "That," Horn said, "is something we will need to deal with. People have watched these kids grow up, and it's been very special to do so. That's important to us."

I am really glad that the last book will be made into two films because I think the only two films so far that did the books justice were the first two. That is merely because I think that they missed out too much from the books after that. I hope that the final two films will finally comprehensively re-tell the book in story form again.
