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 am very pleased about this. They really seem to pull out all the stops for DH. :) And for the age make-up. They probably don´t even have to use digital effects, they can get a real good make-up artist and he/she´ll come up with it. It is only a few years. :)

I’m glad that they are playing themselves! It wouldn’t be the same if they just had lookalikes! :)

I’M SO EXCITED!!! Thank Goodness they’re using Dan, Rupert, and Emma instead of some different actors. The epilogue will be sooo much more emotional with them…I CAN’T WAIT!!!! I can’t think of one thing they’re leaving out of movie 7 so far!!! Yay!!!!

That’s great, I’m really happy they’re not getting new people. I hope that they do the epilogue just like it is in the book, I’d love to see the actors they choose for all the kids. And we’ve got to return to Platform 9 and 3/4 – it’s classic.

Woo-hoo! It will be so cool to see them aged up a bit. I am glad they are keeping the epilogue even though it wasn’t what I had hoped for, I have come to like it.
