- Harry: "What do you know about the Deathly Hallows?"
- Ollivander: "It is rumoured there are three. To possess them all is to make oneself immortal. But few truly believe that such objects exist. If it is true — you really don't stand a chance."
- — First spoken dialogue from Deathly Hallows in a snippet-trailer.[src]
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be the final two films of the Harry Potter film series, based on the seventh book by J. K. Rowling. Due to the length of the story and a desire by the filmmakers to be more faithful to the novel, it will be split into two parts:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I is the first film, covering the story from the beginning to the trio's capture by Snatchers.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II is the second film, covering the story from the Skirmish at Malfoy Manor to the Epilogue.
|"Years ago, we briefly — and seriously — considered doing Goblet of Fire as two films. So this concept is not altogether new. As for Deathly Hallows, I intuited — almost from the first moments I began reading it and certainly once I'd finished — that to realize the story in a single film was going to be a tall order. Others in 'the group' felt similarly. So the idea of two films began to get kicked around as early as late summer of 2007. We didn't take it lightly. But ultimately everyone felt that despite the challenges it would present, it was the most sound creative decision.|
I'm sure some will think we're crazy. My wife looked at me cross-eyed when I first mentioned it. But I'm really excited about it because it should allow us to stretch a bit with the characters and give them the proper send-off. The story is highly emotional and those moments deserve time to breathe. And, personally, I feel we owe it to Jo — in order to preserve the integrity of the work — and the fans — for their loyalty all these years — to give them the best and most complete experience possible."
On March 12, 2008, Warner Bros. confirmed that the movie would be split into two, to do justice to the book.David Yates, director of Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince will return to direct and Steve Kloves is going to write the screenplay. According to Warner Bros. executive Alan F. Horn it will allow "an extra hour and a half to celebrate what this franchise has been and do justice to all the words and ideas in the amazing story." Heyman described the workings behind the split: "Deathly Hallows is so rich, the story so dense and there is so much that is resolved that, after discussing it with Rowling, we came to the conclusion that two parts were needed." Due to the WGA strike, Kloves was not able to start work on the script until it ended.
Before David Yates was officially chosen to direct the film, others had expressed an interest in the job. Alfonso Cuarón, director of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, had said that he would be "tempted" to return to direct.Guillermo del Toro, who passed on Prisoner of Azkaban, had expressed interest in directing Deathly Hallows, but an increased workload ruled him out of the project.
Heyman noted that the films will be a closer recreation of the books than the previous films because of the length a two-part adaptation entails.Daniel Radcliffe said: "This is a road movie, particularly in Part One of the film. People have been so used to seeing Harry Potter at Hogwarts and we're just not there for the first part of the film. That seems to have really freshened things up, and hopefully will get people seeing the films with fresh eyes again, because its just a totally different look when you're not just sat in the same room the whole time."
Although Yates had retained composer Nicholas Hooper for Half-Blood Prince, John Williams (who composed the scores to the first three films) had expressed interest in returning to score the film - however he did not state which part he would be contributing to. In January 2010 Alexandre Desplat, a french composer, was confirmed to produce the score for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I. 
The first part of Deathly Hallows will end as the trio are captured by the Snatchers, the second part of film begins as they arrive at the Malfoy Manor.
Daniel Radcliffe pretended to scare the fans when he said "There will be two films for Hallows, and if there isn't, I'm not returning to play Harry Potter."
The reason for two parts or films as David Heyman has stated is so there will be no major cuts in characters and scenes. This allows the adaptation to be more in depth than the other six films. It has been announced that these parts will be in 3-D in theaters after the success of Avatar.
Pre-production began on January 26, 2009, and filming began on February 19, 2009 at Leavesden Film Studios, where the previous six films had been shot, and Pinewood Studios. Eduardo Serra is the cinematographer. Yates said that the film will be shot "with loads of hand-held cameras. I want to shake things up every time I go into this world. I like experimenting as we go along."
During production at Leavesden, Radcliffe's stunt double David Holmes suffered a serious spinal injury, during filming of an aerial sequence. Holmes fell to the ground following an explosion which was part of the stunt. It is probable that the aerial sequence and explosion is the Battle over Little Whinging. This left Holmes paralyzed from the waist down and it is reported he will be unable to ever walk again.
David Heyman revealed work will begin in early 2009 on the seventh movie in the series.
"We finished the sixth film which'll be coming out next summer and we start filming the seventh which we'll be breaking into two parts for a 54 week shoot starting in February (2009)."
Test shoots were done on January 26, 2009 as Emma Watson revealed on her Official Website.  Unfortunately, just days later it was reported that a stunt double for Daniel Radcliffe was seriously injured while testing an explosion scene.

Sean Biggerstaff, Luke Youngblood, Tiana Benjamin, and William Melling may reprise their roles as Oliver Wood, Lee Jordan, Angelina Johnson, and Nigel Wespurt, respectively.

Differences From the Books
- It has been announced that there will be a scene with the Minister for Magic, Rufus Scrimgeour, making a speech about how times will "grow darker still" to Ministry employees.
- There will also be a scene with Neville, Luna, and Ginny on the Hogwarts Express.
- It is thought that a chase scene on land will be added into the Seven Potters fight sequence.
- It has been announced that Bill will be attacked during the Battle over Little Whinging.
- It has been hinted at that an extended wand battle between Umbridge and Harry will be included and a chase scene with the Snatchers will take place during the film's climax.
- Judging by filming pictures, Harry Potter will most likely not be disguised as "Barny Weasley" during the wedding.
- The Ron and Hermione kiss is thought to be changed to take place in the Chamber of Secrets.
- It has been announced that the character Vincent Crabbe will not appear in the movie due to the drug charges against actor Jamie Waylett, and that Gregory Goyle will die in his place.
- In an interview, director of the film David Yates announced that a scene will be added where Hermione Granger and Harry Potter are dancing, and, while dancing, they reveal some secrets about each other. 
- In the film, Mr. Ollivander appears to be familiar with the Deathly Hallows, while in the book, he doesn't understand what the term means.
- Judging by filming pictures, a scene will be added where Hermione Granger leaves her home.
- It was announced recently at Mugglenet that Josh Herdman slipped the information that the division between the two parts of the Deathly Hallows film will occur after the trio is caught by the Snatchers, and that the Malfoy Manor part will happen at Part II.
- The use of characters omitted from previous films such as Bill and Charlie, Fleur, and Rufus Scrimgeour will likely require the addition of some exposition to explain their presence. In addition, some changes made for the Half-Blood Prince film, such as the circumstances of Harry hiding the potions textbook, and the destruction of the Burrow, may also result in some additions.
