Harry Potter's final adventure is being split into two movies — and now we know where the cliffhanger will fall. And get a closer look at Luna Lovegood's family and the next set of adventures for Harry and friends. Spoilers...
Entertainment Weekly new issue is full of Deathly Hallows images and information.
As far as the split, EW revealed that:
Part I will end at about Chapter 24 of the book, with Voldemort gaining possession of the Elder Wand, one of the three Deathly Hallows that allow the bearer to conquer death.
Which means more time in Part 2 for the big battle of Hogwarts. And director David Yates explains the two films will feel totally different:
Part 1 is quite verite, quite real... You feel that these three kids are refugees. They're almost homeless, and it feels interesting seeing them removed from the haven of Hogwarts. ... Part 2 is much more operatic and colorful and fantasy-oriented. What gives you the through=line between the films are these characters and the real relationship the audience has developed with them.
The magazine also reveals that on their set visit, the crew was filming a scene where the characters search for a horcrux in the Room of Requirement, and it catches fire, and they're still wet from seeking a horcrux underwater and being chased by a Voldemort-shaped tidal wave.
And finally, Daniel Radcliffe says he felt his performance in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, was very one-note and he wants to do better this time around.
