Ok, so how Hermione is able to carry Dobby down to his grave-site after just being tortured by Bellatrix, I don’t know. Go movie people!

I will be upset if Hermione’s torture scen isn’t in the film! That is such a big part and the driving force for Ron and Harry to get out of the dungeon!

I went off on this sort of thing several times in the comments regarding the possible insertion of Rita in the movie. Typical Kloves. Change everything and put Hermione center stage even when it makes no sense. I swear he has no respect for these books. I understand that movies and books will never – and can never – be the same. I’m totally fine with that. But Kloves makes changes that make no sense whatsoever and detract from the story. Ooh, he makes me mad!

Is that man with the curly hair and beard supposed to be Ron disguised as the death eater before they go to Gringotts?

coolio, we got some good stuff today. omg can’t believe thats dobbies grave sooo sad.
and btw those guys saying wheres Ron? there is actually a picture of Ron/Rupert by the grave next to Hermione/Emma in the link in the update, but i do agree with peoples Hermiones comments, she’s meant to be unstable on her feet as she has just been tourtured. I don’t usually nit pick at the films because i understand it’s a different medium but come on Hermiones touture is a big part of the scene before shell cottage, oh well we will see the finshed scene in like 2 years hehe soooo….i just look forward to the rest of the filming ahhh we ciuld get some Bill tomorrow

Are we allowed to post other sites on her? I found a photo of Ron with Hermione as she is carring Dobby’s body and they look really upset. There’s one where she is holding a Dobby model and Rupert and Dan are laughing.

I’m willing to bet this is a rehearsal; maybe so they can set the marks. I always pictured this scene at night however. Seriously though I’m glad they are including this scene, day or night. It’s the only part in any of the books that made me tear up a bit.

"So," sneered Fudge, recovering himself, "you intend to take on Dawlish, Shacklebolt, Dolores, and myself single-handed, do you, Dumbledore?"[br]"Merlin's beard, no," said Dumbledore, smiling. "Not unless you are foolish enough to force me to."
