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!

I do hope that the chase ends up in the sky at some point, but a chase on the ground is sort of reminiscent of the postcard that Jo wrote about James and Sirius being chased by the muggle police.

So I suppose this won’t be a flying sequence then! Shame I can see this being as good as the fight scene at the end of hBP

Umm, surely they are going to be flying at some point… this is Harry Potter not Beverly Hills Cop.

How can you say they set up DH? What about knowing what the other horcruxes are? It was enough of a stretch for us to think Harry could find them in the book, but he knows nothing of the cup, nagini, or something of ravenclaws or gryffindors. My guess is they will ruin this film like they do all the others (ruin from a Harry Potter standpoint. HBP was a very entertaining movie, but not a Harry Potter movie other than a few vague similarities)

Potterfans overreacting and judging a film before it is completed – some things never change.

I’m worried about this now. So much happened during that chase and a lot of it has to be in the air!! Also, my gut is telling me that by doing it this way they aren’t including the Seven Potters and that would be awful.

Guess That Book

After a meal of turkey sandwiches, crumpets, trifle, and Christmas cake, everyone felt too full and sleepy to do much before bed except sit and watch Percy chase Fred and George all over Gryffindor tower because they'd stolen his prefect badge.
