‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ Epilogue Images

Published 5 years ago by , Updated August 11th, 2013 at 4:19 am,


The first half of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will arrive in regular and 3D theaters this fall, with Part 2 set for Summer 2011.

In the meantime, fans of the boy wizard can entertain themselves by having a look at these new images from the second film’s epilogue – which serves as the conclusion to the original novel.

Arriving in theaters nearly a decade after the first film in the series, the seventh Harry Potter flick finds the wizarding world at war with the dark forces of Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes).  As those who caught the previous Potter adventure – Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince – are aware, our titular hero (Daniel Radcliffe) will be on a mission with his BFFs Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) to make Voldemort essentially mortal once more so that he may at last be defeated.

Now, there are actually a lot of moviegoers out there who have not read the last of the Harry Potter novels and are thus unfamiliar with how it ends – more importantly, who survives the final battle.  Well, the epilogue to the original Deathly Hallows novel jumps ahead 19 years into the future and reveals the ultimate fate of several of the surviving characters.  The second half of the film version will do the same.

Needless to say, the photos below are SPOILERS for anyone not familiar with the conclusion to Deathly Hallows.  So, if you want to remain in the dark about the fate of “The Boy Who Lived,” you’ll want to skip these.

Still here?  Have a look for yourselves:


Truth be told, I find myself rather unimpressed with these photos.  The retreating hairlines are convincing enough, but the skin wrinkles and overall makeup jobs bring to mind the poor work done on Carla Gugino as the elderly Silk Spectre I in Watchmen.  All four of these characters – Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton) – are only supposed to be 36 and will almost undoubtedly age much better in reality than they do here.

As a devote Potter fan myself, I’ve been a bit skeptical so far about the inclusion of the epilogue in Deathly Hallows for reasons beyond concerns about how the actors would be made to look older.  The quality of writing in the epilogue was not on par with the rest of the original book – not to mention kind of rushed in the manner that its events unfolded on the page.

Will the epilogue work better in the film version of Deathly Hallows?  Do you think the makeup job on the actors actually looks pretty good?  Feel free to sound off in the comments section below.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 arrives in regular, 3D, and IMAX theaters in the U.S. on November 19th, 2010.  Part 2 will follow suit on July 15th, 2011.

  1. That’s Draco at 36? He looks about 80. This is silly. Way to ruin the perfect ending to a decade-long series, Warner Bros.

  2. lmao @ draco’s picture hahahahahaa :DD ahhhh i cant wait for it! espicially the ron and hermoine kiss!!!! <333

  3. Is it just me or does Ron look like a creeper? Like he should be driving around in an unmarked van with the windows blacked out?

  4. I think it’s terribly off! I agree completely with what you had said, they are only 36, and lord knows they would have aged much nicer than that!

  5. Okay so I have a Harry Potter obsession, I won’t deny that and seeing theise Pictures upsets me quite a bit. I mean their only supose to be 36 years old and they look MUCH older than that and I bothers me, I feel that if they keep them like this then it will be a even bigger mistake than the 6th movie. I really hope that they change it.

  6. I think that the pictures are a red herring. I’ve heard that they will be using digital/CGI effects to age the actors…

  7. I like all of the kids i think they are perfect but I dont like the actor who plays James Sirius Potter. He is suppose to look like Harry but he DOES NOT!!!

    • They are NOT supposed to be identical…Ummm, where did you see that pic???

  8. Geez, and I always imagined that they’d age with grace.
    While I don’t think Harry and Hermione are too bad, Ron and Draco look like they’re in their late 50′s to early 60′s.
    (And what’s up with Draco’s beard? You can show passage of time in different ways than weird facial hair.)

  9. Okay. hermione looks ok and so does harry a bit but Draco and Ron look like they are 65!!!! i hope it’s a bit different in the movie.

  10. Draco looks soooo old like super old but Hermione and Harry look okay but Ron looks like he is old. They should touch up the make-up and make them younger. but they say that they refilmed the epilogue because of minor changes. I’m not really sure

  11. Look, Sirius was about the same age and he looked old as hell! So does Snape. James and Lily look young as he’ll because with Ressurection Stone it didn’t show them what they would like if they hadn’t died – it’s how they look when they did. Remus is old too, and all. Basically, it’s not bad. Ginny aged fine and so did Hermione. Harry is fine as Ron and Draco are a little worse but not bad. Look I mean Lucius was old looking so, and so was Mr. Weasley. There you go.

  12. I think that they defiantly look older but they don’t look 36 except for Harry and hermione who could pass for a 36 year old. Ron and malfoy look much older than 36 in my opinion.
