2 New ‘Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows’ Clips [Updated]

Harry Potter the Deathly Hallows movie clip 2 New Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Clips [Updated]

A legion of fiercely loyal fans bearing cloaks, plastic wands, and probably boxes of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans (to snack on, naturally) will descend upon theaters at midnight just two weeks from tonight to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 on the big screen.

Two new clips from the seventh installment in the Harry Potter movie franchise have been released and they raise the question: How will moviegoers who haven’t read the original Deathly Hallows novel feel about the two-part cinematic finale?

The Harry Potter books are crammed full with supporting characters and subplots, in addition to the overarching narrative. Screenwriter Steve Kloves – who penned the script for all but the fifth Harry Potter movie, Order of the Phoenix – was not unfairly accused of being slavishly loyal to J.K. Rowling’s original text when he adapted the first two books in the series, but he has since become a bit more willing to exercise certain details and storylines in the later novels from his screenplays entirely (much to the chagrin of certain fans, admittedly).

Why bring all this up? Well, the first new Deathly Hallows: Part 1 clip contains references to the wedding of Bill Weasley (Ron’s older brother) and Fleur Delacour (who was last glimpsed onscreen in Goblet of Fire). The sixth Harry Potter novel, Half-Blood Prince, introduced this plot element, which was removed from the film adaptation – will those unfamiliar with the books find this all to be a bit random?

Check out that scene from Deathly Hallows: Part 1 below:

The second clip references the fact that underage wizards, like Harry at the beginning of Deathly Hallows: Part 1, bear “The Trace,” a spell that allows the Ministry of Magic to locate them wherever they go. Since Lord Voldemort’s forces have infiltrated the wizard government, Harry’s companions devise a fairly ingenious scheme to provide him with extra protection while they transport him to a safe location.

Check out that scene below:

No one who goes to see either half of Deathly Hallows will so do without having either seen the previous films, read the original Harry Potter books, or looked up their summaries on Wikipedia (presumably). When certain plot threads are wrapped in both of the Deathly Hallows movies, will it make as much sense to non-book fans as it will to those fully devoted to the titular boy wizard?

We’re very much looking forward to the final (and darkest) chapters in the Harry Potter series and expect Deathly Hallows to deliver lots of intense action, suspense, drama, and even a bit of humor. How about you?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 hits regular and IMAX screens on November 19th, 2010 at midnight. Part 2 will arrives in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D theaters next summer on July 15th, 2011.

  1. This clip was ok. I was expecting an action packed clip,but oh well. I still cant wait! I must not watch more! Arrrggghh!!!!

    • I thought you weren’t going to watch this 😛

      • When did i say that? Only a zombie version of me would say that!


      • Oh the CLIP.

        I wasnt going to watch but ppl were telling me too. And i was curious. Im too weak :(

        • “lead me not into temptation” 😉

          haha. I understand

    • the play out school harrypotter nathan yes your out jk harrypotter12nathan

  2. after watching the previous 6 films I doubt anyone would get confused by these random scenes . People will accept anything that is cool , colourful and magical to be part of the movie without getting confused and that’s the reason that all these muggles love the Harry Potter movies (I personally loved the first three and found the other 3 average)

  3. Ricky !! You’re weak man!! Pull up the socks and stop watching this promo stuff and wait..it’s only two weeks dude…

    • Im trying to,but when the whole world tells you to see it and stuff i crumble. Oh and if i know about it,then i crumble as well. Damn.

      • If everybody was jumping off the Bay Bridge would you do it too? 😉

        • Well i know about it! Thats what happens lol

  4. I’m pretty sure that the wedding will be explained at the beggining of the film so that people who have not read the books can catch up. Interesting how they mention the trace and how he still has it, so in the film they don’t get rid of it or something?

    • Jose

      In the film he loses the trace after he turns 17….so hes still 16 lol.

      • Remember how he disowns his Muggle house to get rid of the trace? Are you not supposed to know this?



      • was it good? tell me so i dont have to watch it

        • Benji it was AMAZING!

          I LOVED THIS CLIP! Omg…they all transform….not the bubble effects like COS…they just shrink etc….but when hermione transforms its so funny. OMG i spoiled this part. Im upst but it was worth it. Now i know how good this film will Be. ITS GOING TO BE EPIC!

          if you want more details just ask :)

          • Lol ur good. Thanks for the info… i just dont want to see anymore footage. I want to be semi-surprised how they shoot a couple things and how things are acted out.

            • Yes if you can do it then thats good. Im just impatient! This has to be the last clip i see! I dont want them to release any more!

            • We’ve updated our article with that new clip, for those that want a bit more background information on the scene.

              Thanks for the alert, Rickly. :-)

              • Yes Sandy anytime 😀

                Im always on the look out of harry potter news 😎

              • Sandy, Don’t encourage him. I’m glad I’m not in the same state as Ricky lol. Being in the same theater with him on opening night would be annoying to say the least :)

                • I’m glad I’m on a different continent! His excitement is rearing up like a massive Dark Mark blasting above the US.

                  • LOL. I just know whoever he go’s go with is in for it. ::nudge:: “This is what happens watch just wait!!” “Oh I’ve see this this is soo cool!!” “OMG you have to watch this next scene!” or the dreaded….”Noooo!!! that wasnt in the book, it didn’t happen like that at ALL!!!”

                    • LOL ants you crack me up 😉

                    • harrypotter1 2 may harrypotter1 2 yes your nathan yesa
                      nathan paulmileyunea harrypotter1 2 the play nathan a

      • man i cannot waitt for this to come out

  6. I just hope drunk morons dont ruin this for me like they did HBP i would pay 50$ to watch this at my house the day it comes out instead of at a dirty loud annoying movie theater. Please hollywood hurry up and release movies at home on the day of release I will pay whatever u ask if u do please.

    • Id pay $200 to see it this very second!

      • Thats no way to save for Theatre Candy Rickly…. Just go back and watch Pirates of the Carribean 3 at World’s End a couple more times so that you can enjoy that clone fest humor that is going to follow in the rest of that scene and remember taht we might even have deal with a bit of Potter nudity and that should slow you down a pace or two until we see it in a little over a week or so… Heck… make life really interesting and forget to pay a bill or two so that you get a few rings on the phone about your utilities shutting off for the winter but just HANG ON THERE because whatever you are going to get for #200 is going to be a bit of sad bootleg anyway… tell yourself Big Screen Big Screen!! That oughta do it for a bit…

        Like the bit about the sky filling up with the Death Eater Signal… nice

        • LOL radical i meant $200 to see it now in a movie theater screening. I wouldnt see it no other way man 😉

          well…im not too sure lol. Ive got my bertie botts jelly beans ready. Yes i have HP candy :) ive been saving it for this film. Hope its not expired lol.

  7. I have officially promised NOT to see any more clips/footage/featurettes for Deathly hallows part 1.

    • There will be no THRILLED if you keep watching those new clips!!
      I’m in pain too waiting for Deathly and its murdering me!!!!!

  8. Noooo!!

    Theres a new clip out i must not watch!
    Its at the manor when the torture begins!

    I vow not to watch.

  9. First there was the Sorcerer’s Stone. Then the Chamber of Secrets, the Prisoner of Azkaban, and the Goblet of Fire. Critically acclaimed, and great children’s literature. J. K. Rowling simply got better and better with each book. Her second-to-last, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, was nothing short of amazing, and every one of the 734 pages was a pleasure to read. Is whimsical, compelling plot of Harry’s journey through Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and its climactic ending left me biting my nails in anticipation of Book Five.Then along came Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.What happened?This gigantic book (nearly 900 pages long) starts off much as the others do, with Harry stuck with his odious relatives, the Dursleys, including a long scene which Harry spends outright taunting his despicable cousin.Yes, this is Harry we’re talking about.The explanation of raging hormones and teenage angst can only go so far. We spent four books with a likeable, brave kid who, after he discovered his magical aptitude, refused to be pushed around. This is a big jump to the guy who spends the entire first third of the book either sulking, wallowing in self-pity, or exploding at his friends Ron and Hermione every time they open their mouths. He’s harder to like, and his “anguish” makes the plot drag for pages on end.The plot is terminally slow, with the entire two hundred pages or so before he actually boards the train spent complaining about how none of the adult wizards (members of the “Order of the Phoenix”) will tell him what’s going on. This leaves us in anticipation of Dumbledore’s “tell-all” session at the end of the book that we are sure will leave us astonished with its blinding revelation.Trouble is, the revelation is nothing we didn’t know or suspect before.The book trudges along with no real sense of purpose. (Ex. Protect the Sorcerer’s Stone, find the Chamber of Secrets). The entire year at Hogwarts is spent rebelling against a truly vile new character, Hogwarts “High Inquisitor” Dolores Umbridge. The book muddles through several subplots that seem to be there only to serve a brief purpose at the end, such as conveniently getting Harry out of trouble. It has its bright spots, such as Fred and George Weasley’s spectacular exit, but the climax of the book is confusing and more of an anticlimax than anything else.Why, J.K.? Why?

  10. i DID NOT read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows yet on purpose for reasons. i just watched the movie twice on 17&18 Nov. only 3-5 minutes started its already make my eyes glistering. Emma watson realy good in her acting as Hermoine! Now i gonna watch it again in cinema!!!
