The last installment in the HARRY POTTER movie franchise will be released in
two parts – because one edit of THE DEATHLY HALLOWS will leave out too much
information about the boy wizard’s final adventures.
The sixth film in the series, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, is due
for release in November (08), and although the characters’ futures are wrapped
up in just seven novels by author J.K. Rowling, fans of the movies will be
given an extra treat with a double dose of Harry Potter and the Deathly
A source says, “There’s so much to fit that the view is the last movie should
be in two halves. There is a huge battle when Harry, played by Daniel
Radcliffe, takes on (evil wizard, Lord) Voldemort (played by Ralph Fiennes)
that needs to be done really well.”
And Rowling has briefly commented on the reports herself, stating on her
website: “It is simply impossible to incorporate every storyline into a film
under four hours long.”
Fans of the books have previously criticized the big-screen adaptations for
their lack of detail.
