Toby Jones Says Role as Dobby for Both Deathly Hallows Films

DH Film

Last January, we told you that actor Toby Jones would reprise his role in the Harry Potter films series by again providing the voice of Dobby the House Elf for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Today, the actor made mention of his return to the series by noting: " I’m currently doing the new Harry Potter film; in fact, the last two Harry Potter films."

Please note: As readers will recall, there has been much ado and speculation over the possible splitting of the films, with the events involving the beloved House Elf at Malfoy Manor and Shell Cottage often discussed. While most certainly we do not yet know where the breaking point in the films will take place, or what all this may mean, it is interesting to note the mention of his return for both movies. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows films is currently in production in England, with Part One set for release November 19, 2010, and Part Two due July 15, 2011.

Dobby’s death is way too early to be the break. It’s going to be the Silver Doe. (Although I would prefer Godric’s Hollow. Leaving Harry with Ron gone and a broken wand would be a great cliffhanger.)

I think it should end with them maybe at Godric’s Hollow looking at the statue or something and then they can start 2 with the action in the rest of that chapter. But wherever it is I’m just glad Dobby will be there!!

I am very happy Dobby will be back for DH, & the same guy will be doing the role. It is too bad that Dobby was left out of the previous movies, because he’s such a great character. And, most likely now they’re going to have to hype him up for those that havent read the books, to remind the audience who Dobby is & why he means so much to Harry. But, I am glad Dobby is free .. erm, back :)

Yay for Dobby! I really want to know when the split is! And this doesn’t help! =( Hopefully Kreacher will also be a big part! Go House Elves!

Yay!!
I kind of wanted them to finish part 1 with his death, although that would be sad.. but I guess this means that won’t happen :(
For the moment I’m just glad he’s going to be doing it, though.

Cements my belief that it will be after the Silver Doe, but before Lovegood (if he’s part of the story) and Malfoy Manor. The ‘thruthful’, emotional break has always sounded like the Silver Doe to me.

I think he’s just told us that the split will happen at/after Malfoy Manor, with Dobby’s final words and death opening the second film.

This is awesome, although I hope this doesn’t mean that Dobby will replace Kreacher because that would not make any sense!
