Wow, make me cry already. I thought this was one of the most touching scenes in the book.

For all those not liking Hermione holding Dobby, you still have hope this scene will end up on the editing room floor! Ha!

How can they show the great sadness over Hermione in Dobby’s death?
1st, Hermione never met Dobby in the previous films,
2nd, The movie doesn’t include the S.P.E.W. movement founded by Hermione….

I always imagines it being dusk during the burial. But this is still great to see.

I think that as Dobby has just saved them all and dies doing it we do not need any additional reasons for the grief, it is a highly charged situation, and for all we know he may appear earlier in the film to give it a bit more context.

It could still be night in the film. Wouldn’t it makes sense for them to rehearse in daylight first?

Wow, that look on Emma/Hermione’s face is gut-wrenching. I was torn up when I read about Dobby’s death, but seeing on screen is going to make it seem so much more real, and so much sadder.

I always thought he would be a bigger bundle than that, but oh well. I’m just glad they’re putting that scene in, and we know that scene will be in DH part 1!
