SDCC: The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Panel


Harry Potter’s own Draco Malfoy, Tom Felton, made an appearance at the San Diego Comic-Con today to introduce footage for the upcoming “Deathly Hallows” films, being released in November and July 2011, respectively. The footage shared played like an extended trailer for the pair of movies and opened with a mirror shard falling to the ground following by a profiled shot of Harry. Voice-over during the shots is Voldemort speaking about the people who have died and those who have suffered as a result of Harry. During the speech, shots of Dumbledore and other. The voice-over closes with Voldemort saying that he will “punish every last man, woman and child that tries to conceal you from me.”

It switches to the familar scene in the forest with Voldemort and all of the Death Eaters when Harry arrives… and Voldemort’s now famous line – “Harry Potter. The boy who live, come to die…” Then you see a bit of the wand duel in the forest. The scene then shifts to fast cuts that include dragons, the trip through Gringotts… and what looked like several Harry Potters standing with each other and various scenes of the epic final battle.

Next is a voice over from property newcomer Bill Nighy playing new Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour who promises his loyals that “Your Ministry remains strong!”

Flash to a scene in a diner with the famous three – Harry, Hermione and Ron – discussing their next moves when they draw wands to defend themselves against an attack from a pair of other diner patrons.

Next, a scene at a long table with the Death Eaters sitting around it and Voldemort sitting at the head. Snape is there, giving Voldemort details of the whereabouts of Harry. Voldemort then reminds the group that he ‘must be the one to kill Harry Potter.’

Fast cuts lead to the famous three, looking haggard and in hiding. Ron is yelling at Harry. Ron has been listening to the radio every night to make sure he doesn’t hear that any of his family has died in the war. Harry barks back “Don’t you think I’ve been listening too!’ Ron nastily reminds Harry that his family is already dead and the two begin to fight.

More fast action cuts which included a voice over about the demise of Minster of Magic. Then wand play with Bellatrix LeStrange… more fighting in the woods… in the sky on brooms and a shot of Harry’s end fight with Voldemort.
