This year I finally got to visit the set of a Harry Potter movie. I walked through Hogwarts, stood in the Great Hall, sat in Dumbeldore’s chair and looked at eight films worth of props, monsters and costumes. It was a geeky dream come true, and I’m happy I got the chance before the series came to an end.
And it’s that ending I have come here to spoil. I’m kind of torn about running this, because what I have here are shots from the very last scene of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II – ie, the very last scene to ever be in any Harry Potter film. But if you’ve been reading the books you know what this scene is, and you know how exciting it is to see these images.
So you’ve been warned – here there be spoilers.
The image below comes from the future – years after the final battle at Hogwarts Harry, Ron and Hermione send their own children off on the Hogwarts Express to learn to be witches and wizards themselves.
This shot reveals that the production has gone with old age makeup to age up Daniel Radcliffe, and not CGI, for which I will be eternally grateful.
