Confirmed: HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS will be a two-part movie

Confirming what was speculated two months ago, it's now being officially announced that the big-screen adaptation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be a two-"volume" production, much like how Kill Bill was. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 will premiere in November of 2010, followed up six months later in May of 2011 with Part 2. David Yates, who directed the adaptation of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and is now at work on Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, will return to helm the final chapter of the Harry Potter movie saga.

Personally, I think this is an excellent way to handle this book. With the myriad of storylines and dangling plot threads left over from the previous chapters, making Deathly Hallows a two-part movie leaves plenty of running room to take care of previous business while further exploring Potter's wondrous world. And it makes sense in terms of drama, too. Ever since this was first speculated, I've thought that Part 1 should end with Harry, Ron and Herminone's capture by the Death Eaters. Part 2 would then pick up with their imprisonment at Malfoy Manor... which would give all the Potter fans a balls-to-the-walls action and magic movie for the next two-plus hours.

(Hey, so long as they have Molly Weasley screaming out "NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH!", I'll be happy no matter what :-)

Hi, Chris

How are you?

Sorry about Czech & Greece idea & the ladies. I did not realize that you were a married man. I hope my comment did not start spat with you & your wife. ;-D Well, another Harry Potter movie. Hmmm..I really would not mind watching 2 Harry Potter movies back to back. :-D The previous freak winter storm post is quite lengthy. You have a fantastic recollection of the event. I like minus 20 temperatures especially with plenty of snow. It's beautiful. Although, bit lower than it & I reckon one would have to start wearing polar bear skins. :-\BbbrrRr I was even happy to fall face first into thick snow while skiing a few weeks ago. Thank goodness there was no rock hidden in it. Lol.
