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.

Yay, Dobby is back!!!

I think the split will be at the end of the Deathly Hallows chapter, when Harry says Voldemort’s name and the Death Eaters show up…

It is possible that they’re going to introduce Dobby again BEFORE Malfoy Manor- we haven’t seen him from movie 2 and he needs more screen time if his death is supposed to be very emotional.

I find it ironic that Dobby was omitted from all the films after CoS to save time/cost, only to reappear in DH in, presumably, non-canon scenes because of that omission. I wonder what canon material will have to be omitted from DH just so that WB can cater for the non-readers by papering over the cracks.

This means Dobby will die in part two, I suppose. I bet the split will be after Godric’s Hollow.

I was just talking with someone else who believes that the split between parts 1 and 2 might occur at Malfoy Manor. This just reaffirms his position.

Interesting indeed. I am glad they are bringing Dobby back. The film is going to have to work hard for his death to have as much impact as it did in the book. Good luck with that.

I love Dobby! I’m sooooo happy that they’re keeping him! Hopefully they’ll mention him or something earlier on and make his death as (or almost as sad) as it was in the book… “And with a little shudder the elf became quite still, and his eyes were nothing more than great glassy orbs, sprinkled with light fom the stars they could not see”. Jo writes so beautifully…
