Ever since it was announced that Warner Bros. was going to be spitting the final volume of the Harry Potter Book series into two films, Potter fans have all been wondering just where the big cut was going to be made between Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II.

The L.A. Times recently sat down with director David Yates to talk about Deathly Hallows, and that interview yielded the info you Potter fans have been clamoring for. If you want to SPOIL it for yourself and find out just where the screen will fade to black during Deathly Hallows: Part I, then keep on reading; if you don’t want to SPOIL the impending frustration surprise, STOP READING NOW.

According to the L.A. Times, Yates called the paper to update them on the filming of Deathly Hallows and was, in fact, shooting the very scene that will be the lead-in to the climax of the first installment:

We’re here in the forest, we’ve just finished the scene where Harry, Hermione and Ron are captured by the Snatchers after being chased through the woods. The Snatchers are brutal and scary but they aren’t the most intelligent of creatures. They’re trying to figure out exactly who it is they’ve caught.

So there you have it. I’ve only ever read the first three Harry Potter books (seen all the films), so to me, this “revelation” isn’t that revealing. But if you HAVE read Deathly Hallows, I’m sure you know how far into it the scene that Yates describes occurs and what comes soon after: that’s your ending to Deathly Hallows: Part I. Now you know.

To read more of the L.A. Times‘ interview with David Yates (he discusses the benefits of filming Deathly Hallows in two installments and how far his young cast has come since the first film), you can go here.

What camp do you belong to: Those that have read Deathly Hallows or those that haven’t? For those that have: is Yates bringing down the curtain at a good point? Or is this “cliffhanger” going to get on people’s nerves?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I is slated to hit theaters on November 19, 2010. (Read our review)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II is slated to hit theaters on July 15, 2011.

    So, as far as reading the book, obviously I have done so. I think this is a pretty decent spot to end the movie because it really is sort of turning point in the story. Harry realizes that Dumbledore wanted him to understand the hallows without going after them, destroying You-Know_Who is what’s most important. I was really excited about the Gringotts scene but I can wait. I think most people who feel the information they’ve left out will make it hard to understand the story and will therefore hurt the film; that’s the whole reason, I’m think, they’re splitting seven into two movies. I think fans should be grateful for another full length Harry Potter. Plus, I’m sure they’ll add in extra lines to catch people up. I don’t think people who’ve not read the books should watch the movies. The movies compel people to read the books and if you already know what is going to happen, it really does take away from J.K. Rowling’s twisted and fantastic world she has created.
