Harry Potter (film series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Any reason why they would have it split into 2 parts and have the second part so far away from the first part? The only thing I can see is that they cover the first half, oh, I dunno, up until the part where Snape contacts them (or maybe a little bit after that). Wikipedia has no info and nobody that I can tell knows. Anyone have an explanation? I mean, I know that pretty much nobody will know where the movie splits but I would like to know why they're doing it.

Yup. They can expect to have hordes of fans at both, regardless.

Did you stop to consider that the book is just too damned long to make it a single movie? I'm guessing it's because the post-production team isn't large enough to cover both movies at the same time. Keep in mind that the Lord of the Rings trilogy was shot all at the same time and released about a year apart from each other.

Each part of LOTR technically consisted of two books each. Even though LOTR itself is meant to be one story, they were split into the three parts that the movie did as well. One thing in particular though is that each of those parts actually consisted of two books. Didn't see Jackson and Co. split them up there.

Deathly Hallows is a long book, but I can't see that it will warrant having to cut up into two parts. It is going to cost them in terms of more production costs and advertising, but they are going to receive it back through the profits they'll reap from both. They don't seem to be having a problem making Half-Blood Prince into a single film, and it was about the same length as Deathly Hallows.

I can see what you mean. It'll just make me go hay wire until the second half comes out. I'm a huge fan of the Harry Potter books and the movies (call me gay if you want.....just so you know, I'm not). I found it funny that when the final movie comes out, Rupert, Daniel, and Emma will all be in their 20s. Lets see, and in Book 7 isn't Harry 17? Excluding the Epilogue. I mean, you're gonna have actors who play a teenagers part, who in real life can legally drink.....lol.

True, but the Order of the Phoenix was the longest book and they managed to fit it into 2 and a half hours. Heres a timeline of the movies and how old I was/will be: 1st movie (November 16, 2001): I think I was 9 years old and some change (4th Grade) 2nd movie (November 15, 2002): 10 years and some change (5th Grade) 3rd movie (May 31, 2004): Almost 12 years old (7th Grade) 4th movie (November 18, 2005): 13 years and a few (8th Grade) 5th movie (July 11, 2007): 14 and some change (9/10th Grade) 6th movie (November 21, 2008): 16 and a few (11th Grade) 7th movie pt1 (November 19, 2010): 18 and some change (1st year of College) 7th movie pt2 (May, 2011): 18 3/5s (lol) (Finishing 1st year of college) Yeah, lol. Its gonna take them almost 2 years to do the 7th movie pt1 and over 2 years for part 2. I need to read the Half Blood Prince and the Deathly Hallows again. I need a refresher. All I remember from book 6 is that Dumbledore dies and that McGonagle

All of the movies could have used this treatment....either that or made them all 3 to 4 hrs long. So much was cut out of the movies that they made very little sense...unless you had read the books and could fill in where you needed to, with your own imagination.

Thats true. There was quite a few scenes that were in the book that never made it to the screne in the OotP (Order of the Phoenix). I can think of quite a few, which isn't bad considering I have shit for semi-long term and short-term memory. Maybe, when I start reading DH (Deathly Hallows) again, I can find some places that might be removed. Where do you guys think it will split?

biggest reason for the 2 parts is that unlike the past books 90% of deathly hollows is very important and cant be cut. there isnt countless chapters of harry just living his life.

apparently the offiicial reason is 'the book is too technical and complex to miss parts out' forcing them to keep it together, however, I do believe that they could get the whole film into a 4.5 hour film
