aww..The look on Harry’s face is so sad.. I can’t wait till this comes out in theaters. I wonder if they’re going to make it a night scene when they edit the film.

Wow, they’re really filming that right now! It still amazes me that the last movie is being made at this moment.

I’m so excited for this, I cried so hard at this part during the book, and I know the movie will make me cry just as hard.
And don’t forget folks, they can do a lot of editing during post production, they may make it dusk, or they may not.The movie is NEVER going to be exactly the same as the book, as much as we all wish it were.

Hey everybody, how about some cheese with that whine???

Come on, it looks like a rehearsal,… or, if not, they are compacting a few interactions into a brisker scene. If they filmed everything exactly as written in the book it would be War and Peace for crying out loud — an 8 hour long mini series, not a two part film. It cannot possibly be exactly as in the books, I’m just grateful that they kept Dobby in at all, and that the scene is included. It revealed so much about Harry.

isnt it meant to be dusk in the book??

when i was reading DH i kept on saying oh no!! ….. just died!! and when i said oh no!!! dobby just died!! and my mum was like.. what!!!????!!!!!!
and my mum got a tear-ful phone call from my sister at 2am. she wasnt v happy. and she said 2 my sister, i kno, i kno!! bea told me!!

when i read DH i got to the part when dobby died and it was getting dark in the summer so there were beautiful lights and in my mind it was really similar…. but at the seaside.

RIP Dobby, the Free House-Elf

BTW re-reading Deathly Hallows and nearly at that part. boohooooooo!
