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.

Good =) I agree that it does add a sense of realty to the films if they keep the original trio. They’re definitely starting to get to the age where makeup can do anything, so it’ll work. Yay!

I am so happy to have this confirmed. I would have been devastated if they hadn’t been allowed to take it all the way to the end after all these years. Yea WB! I too am eager to see who is cast as the children. Especially little Albus.

It’s about time we heard that. Could you imagine our riot if they didn’t use the trio for that scene?

Dang… I suppose it was a pipe dream to hope for a star-studded, cameo-drenched epilogue (Winslet as Hermione, Pegg as Ron, somethin like that).

Ah, well. This’ll be fun, too.

Sue I’m gonna out squee you girl!!!!!!!!! Man this is the best news! It’ll be really interesting to see what Dan, Rupert and Emma will look like as mid thirties adults. And I do hope the producers include that scene with Draco, Astoria and Scorpius, I’m really interested as to what Draco would look like as an older man!

Does the happy dance
