I won’t say anything else. I just hope the movie follows the book closely, especially in the most important scenes. Please, please, no random stuff added.

I agree with those that are concerned that Hermione is the one holding Dobby in this scene. I’m hoping they don’t cut out her torture scene. That’s such a huge part of the book!

i’m w/ everyone else.. Why is Hermione holding Dobby’s body???? she’s suppose to be weak after almost being killed.. she’s suppose to have someone hold her for support since she can barely move..

i’m goin’ to cry so much when i see this scene.. lol..

Rest in peace, Dobby.

I actually began to cry as soon as I saw that picture.

remember that they still have to edit it through the comp – these are raw pictures.. no effects or lighting visuals really at all…so hopefully the tone and mood will be a bit more effected by color. I’m going to stop looking at all the spoilers or when i go to see the movie i’m going to know the entire playout of ever scene already lol!

I always imagined a cottage on the edge of the beach with a very large shade tree and a grass lawn inside a stone wall fence. Harry diggs a grave under the shade tree and uses a stone that has tumbled off the wall as a grave stone. In the back ground over the wall you would see the beach and ocean.

I hope this scene is well done, and I hope it makes the whole audience cry. But because it’s good, not because it’s awful :]

Grief stricken Hermione indeed, it looks very real, Emma seems to be capturing this extremely well. I agree Tegaaan about the red mark on her neck, I think it could probably be the mark from the knife which Bellatrix holds to Hermione’s neck until Dobby makes the chandelier drop onto the table at which point Bellatrix has to release Hermione and then of course she throws the knife at Dobby as they disapparate.
