Location filming for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows continues as the Liverpool Echo is reporting today that second unit crews are on location at the Queensway Tunnel in Liverpool working more on the Seven Potters scene from the movie. UPDATE: Video of the tunnel, motorcylce, crew and prep work here on YouTube or here in our galleries.  According to the article, none of the main stars will be present as this involves the Bickers Action stunt team who have worked on several of the previous Harry Potter films, as well as doubles for the actors. The paper also says:

The scene is thought to involve Hagrid, who has so far been played by Robbie Coltrane, racing through the tunnel on Sirius Black’s trademark motorbike with Harry Potter in a sidecar fighting off enemies with his wand. A publicist for the film said: “We have got a unit shooting for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows “There are no principal cast members there. “It is all going very well and everybody has been very accommodating locally.”

Readers will recall we saw photos of second unit filming for the Seven Potters scene at the end of July  involving doubles for Hagrid and Harry on the magical flying motorbike belonging to Sirius Black.

Wow,this scene is probably gonna be amazing,though like everyone else i don’t get why they’re on the ground.It could be that half of the chase takes place on the groung and the other part in air,just to make things look even better…

Yesterday I saw a motorcycle with a sidecar and I squeed out loud … alas, it was bright yellow so, I didnt really think it was Sirius’s motorcycle that had just flown over here (but, you never know)

I think it’s going to be a combo of sky and street. Of course they’ll expand this action sequence in the movie. That’s what they do. Avoiding cars will be an extra menace. They’ll probably hit a point where they have to fly up to avoid crashing or something. We’re never going to see pictures of the flying stuff because it will occur inside a studio with green screens. I think it will be still be fun with the street chase. I couldn’t imagine them completely cutting out the sky part. We’ll just have to be surprised for that part.

I hope they do some aerial work. The stuff on the ground will be fine, but I want to see the fight in the air. That was terrifying in the book. Especially when Hagrid fell.

Check out the Bickers site, as they have some great stunt equipment on it. This will be an unforgettable scene when Harry and Hagrid are fighting off the Death Eaters.

I don’t think I’ll be able to watch Hedwig die.

As long as they have Harry’s “Accio Hagrid” line I’ll be a happy camper. :D
