Many thanks to EH, who emailed me this news. The last, epic installment in the Harry Potter Series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, will be made into two films, which will be released in November of 2010 and May of 2011. They are going to be called simply Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 and 2, and the director claims that they aren’t doing it for money, but because there aren’t any subplots that can be eliminated.
You know, even if they were doing it for money, they could still have mine. I think splitting the book into two movies will allow for the kind of detail and true-to-the-bookedness that we die-hard fans have been longing for since Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone hit the silver screen back in 2001.
Not to skip over the more immediate news, though. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be released later this year, on November 21st.
