Location filming news continues for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. While the London filming is still underway, following now is more on the location filming for the Shell Cottage scenes due to take place in Wales next month. The BBC reports the actual dates of filming on the coastline of Wales will take place May 11th through the 15th on Freshwater West beach of the Pembrokeshire National Park. (You can learn more about the beach here). The BBC article notes:

Pembrokeshire council cabinet member Rob Lewis said they would only take place when needed by the film crews - and would not effect pedestrians, emergency vehicles or residents.He said the benefits of filming would outweigh any temporary disruption.

"The decision to film parts of Harry Potter and Robin Hood in our county this summer is a fantastic development, which will bring benefits to our economy and the tourist industry," he said."Such high profile films with big stars bring with them huge film crews which can considerably boost an area's economy."It will particularly help many small businesses, which need all the help they can get in these difficult times.

Warner Bros indicated they would be taking extra steps to ensure any disruption to the beautiful beach area would be minor. "Responding to concerns on the Facebook site, Warner Brothers - the company behind the Harry Potter franchise - said it would have a maximum crew of 200. It said there would be a letter drop in the local community to outline its plans and pledged the beach and dunes would be litter picked every day they were on site."

It goes without saying that the set they have selected is fantastic and will complement the story well! I cannot wait to see pictures of the cottage soon!

So exciting! I really really hope that they have Fleur cast for this, though.

It would be disappointing to have no Phlegm at Shell Cottage. But, we haven’t heard any casting news on this yet…no confirmation of Clemence Posey returning or a new actor cast for the part. It will be interesting to see what they do with this scene if Fleur isn’t cast.

Yeah I hope they get the scene where Ron is carrying Hermione. That would make my day even more! I wish Fleur was in the film.

Wow it feels weird that they are filming “Shell Cottage” this soon when we haven’t even heard rumors let alone facts regarding the casting of Fleur. It makes me quite anxious because I really really want Fleur in the last films and I adore Clemence Poesy so I will be extremely disappointed if there is no Fleur or Clemence in DH. I suppose I could live if they had to cast someone else to play Fleur, but for the love of god just cast someone already! I’ll take anyone at this point! Just give us some “Phlegm”! lol

Beautiful beach area! I hope they have Fleur too. The beach cottage and wedding both make more sense with her than without.

I do think it is interesting that they are, true to word, filming parts of both films at the same time. This is, in the end, a convenient way to film, and means that hopes are good for them being able to really do the fall-then-summer, back-to-back releases of parts I and II.
