Deathly Hallows Filming Update: Sirius Black's Motorbike is Back!

Check it out! The flying motorbike belonging to Sirius Black is back, as witnessed in new location photos for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Although not so airborne as in the books, you can see these new pics (more here all courtesy of HP4U) of stunt doubles for Hagrid and Harry zooming along the Dartford-Thurrock River Crossing tunnel and bridge express  way in Kent, England as they did a sequence to be used for the Seven Potters scene. Neither Dan Radcliffe nor Robbie Coltrane were present for the filming. reports that "the bulk of the shoot was centered on obtaining wide shots of the pair being chased into the tunnel. Harry wearing a grey hoodie with a stripe down the arm and wand at the ready, Hagrid, in his familiar huge coat and sporting his goggles sped at around 30 mph in real time speed, weaving in and out of traffic with great effect. For Friday morning, we were treated to further perspective shots of the pair racing through the tunnels, despite the oncoming traffic, weaving in and out with Hagrid seemingly kicking out at any vehicles which came too close and Harry casting spells to his rear."
Other filming for the scenes will take place at both Leavesden and on location, rumored to be Hartfordshire over the next few weeks.

Thanks much to, ONTD, SS, and all who owled!

Some of you are overreacting. They can’t do the flying scenes until they are in the studio. Does it look like they are in the studio?

Good to see Sirius’ motorbike again. I believe like many others that the flying shots will be done in the studio on a rig and green screen. I would like to see how they do that dragon smoke thing that Arthur added onto the motorbike.

I’m going to take Dan Radcliffe’s advice and keep my expectations low so that I won’t be disappointed! LOL.
If the DH screenplay is as loosely based on the book as HBP was, then there will be loads of stuff we don’t recognize in there and possibly some stuff that is near and dear will be sorely absent.
See, with my low expectations, I’m bound to be happy! :D

I swear to GOD that some fans need to read through ALL OF THE COMMENTS before posting yet another “OMG! I HATE THIS MOVIE ALREADY! THEY AREN”T FLYING!?! I HATE YOU DAVID YATES!!" Because, HELLO, they still need to film the REMAINDER OF THE SCENE (yes, FLYING AND ALL!) IN THE STUDIO!

Sheesh. I don’t know how some of us can repeat it anymore…

BwaySaint you said exactly what i was just thinking, lol. These people who are ranting and raving clearly don’t read any comments before they post their uninformed little rants.
