Another Confirmation on the Aging Process and Cast for Epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Several times in the past, we've reported on various cast members, such as Rupert Grint (Ron), discussing the epilogue for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and the possible aging process to be used on the original cast members. Today, MTV has a new article where film producer David Heyman also weighs in on the epilogue, noting:

“We will shoot it,” producer David Heyman confirmed for MTV News. Rowling wrote a flash-forward ending to “The Deathly Hallows” that shows where the characters end up as they grow older. Heyman also indicated that the original Hogwarts actors would be filling those roles for the sequence, rather than being replaced by older lookalikes.

“Yes,” he acknowledged, nodding that aging done to the characters would use the existing cast.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is currently in production in London, England, with Part One due in theaters November of 2010, and Part Two, July of 2011.

I hope it looks proper though, cuz I can easily imagine it being done wrong and looking corny. I hope we get to see Luna grown up though

This is great to hear! I’m looking forward to seeing the trio aged – and (I presume) with children. If they shoot this, I would imagine they would keep in the conversation with Albus Severus.

Please Film Makers, Make the 2 remaining HP movies length was like Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings, and i don’t care if its more than 3 hrs. each movies. Because until now i’m also watch LOTR again and again… same with Harry Potter 1 – 5

I must concede that I am very pleased to hear this, that the original cast will be retained during the epilogue scene. That the original actors will close the movie will bring a sense of authenticity to the entire series. Merely knowing that the original trio started the movies and ended them as well is a beautiful thought.

I certainly also think it possible for them to achieve this well. Considering the convincing digital technologies used in Benjamin Button (which will, obviously, improve in the next few years even), I think that they could capture the advance of the years in the characters perfectly.

I am looking forward to more media on the Deathly Hallows a lot…and that does not even cover the trailer coming tonight and the movie this summer! I do not like to be overwhelmed with media, but I certainly am enjoying this!

Oh no, I had hoped the worst parts of DH would be left out, but it doesn’t seem to be the case. Well, as long as they skip the scene showing Voldemort yelling through a megaphone…

This might have been a concern years ago when we even thought that it was possible to replace the original actors to keep the character’s ages but it’s not a surprise to me right now. Fans would be outraged if they didn’t stick with Radcliffe, Grint, and Watson through to the end. I’m looking forward to seeing them aged though and who will play their children!

2011 sniffs

maybe they will accept fans as their children!
I’m up for meeting Alan Rickman! (Or Jason Isaacs, or Ralph Fiennes, or Evanna Lynch, or Emma Watson….)
