'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1': Behind-the-scenes video

This might only be for rabid Harry Potter fans (so, most of us, I guess?), but some newly released behind-the-scenes footage offers a nice, offbeat glimpse at the filming of Deathly Hallows, Part 1. Among the choice scenes: Helena Bonham Carter cracking up in full Bellatrix regalia; Mark Williams and Julie Walters as the Weasleys, practicing their dancing for the wedding; and some fun shots of Robbie Coltrane and Daniel Radcliffe on the motorcycle. Also funny (to me, at least), Radcliffe and Rupert Grint manfully slinging their wands and shouting “Stupefy!” to a nearly silent room. See the videos embedded after the jump.

    Colombia, no one really likes The Harry Potter films. The Transformers franchise is much more popular, and I think much more likely to stand the test of time and stand beside the classics.

    • TD

      Less popular than the Transformers series? You’ve got to be joking. Even die hard transformers fans found Revenge of the Fallen deplorable. Harry Potter will always be more successful than Transformers

      • Traci

        He was joking.

      LOL. I watched some of these (love the part with Helena cracking up), but they spoil a lot of the movie, so I will check out the rest after I see it. Only 6 days to go!

  • Jose

    Accio Nov. 19!

    • Liz

      Am I the only one confused about where they are cutting these movies? When does the first one end? The logical end to the first to me is the departure of Ron but these clips and parts of the trailer all seem to be the 2nd half.

        I heard it was right after Voldemort gets the Elder Wand.

      • Ashley G.

        Yes it is right after Voldy opens up Dumbledores tomb and claims the elder wand

      • Ian

        Part 2 will mostly be The Battle of Hogwarts.

    • Christopher Robin

      Jose – Hahahaha!

      • Krystal

        I think thats a great place to cut it. The second part is going to be like a warzone. I hope they handle the deaths that happen at hogwarts in a way that makes our heart wrench.

    CAN’T WAIT!!!!

  • dizzy

    I enjoyed watching these behind-the-scenes videos. If only Nov 19 could come faster!

  • Kristina

    I always like watching behind-the-scenes video like this. It’s the closest to seeing what it’s like being on set that I’ll ever get.

  • Nikki

    If these are all scenes from pt.1, then it will at least include the dungeon at Malfoy Manor. I wonder when they will end pt.1. I can’t wait till the 19th.

    • Just Jules

      I hear they split when Voldemort takes the Elder Wand from Dumbledore’s crypt. It was posted a long time ago in an EW story.

    • dizzy

      Yeah, I think it will be at where he gets the Elder Wand. If you look at the titles in the soundtrack, the last one is called “Elder Wand”, or something along those lines.

  • Laura W

    Ha ha first comment is hilarious!! Just think that but it isn’t true!!

  • Kennick


  • paula

    I’m totally in love with Mr and Ms Weasley dancing

  • jordan


    the end of the first movie is when voldemort gets the elder wand.

  • jordan

    Oh, didnt see the comment above, my fault.

    But i’m glad it’s in 2 films, now hopefully nothing will be cut out.

  • Princess Adora

    vGoogle in the input: clshoe.us you can find many brand names, even more surprising is that he will sell you the unexpected o(∩_∩)o

    All i know is Mrs Weasleys line better be in the movie where she says something like “Leave my daughter alone you b*tch” somehting along those lines… i remember going you go Mrs Weasley

    • Alyssa

      I know what you mean. I love Bellatrix because Helena makes her so bonkers and funny and evil at the same time. But in the book and hopefully movie ***SPOILER*** she says ” whats your poor little children to do when Mummy goes the way of Freddy?” and Bellatrix fires the AK and it nearly misses Ginny and then MOLLY has had it. She says ” NOT my Daughter you B*****!” i think thats how the scenario went.

      • Jill

        LOVE that scene in the book… Molly goes all bad-a** on Bella!

  • meliot

    I’m pulling out the Deathly Hallows book today to prep for the movie. Loved the behind the scenes videos.
