Harry Potter is the franchise that won’t die. It’s not a bad thing, since the books were enjoyable and even if the films had their ups and downs, they were always good for a watch. Still, just when you think the franchise would be over, they do something like announce that the final book would be split into two films. It feels like they’re dragging it, clinging to their cash cow, even if I thought it really helped the pacing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One. Anyway, the hard work of the franchise is almost all over…or is it?
The Daily Mail tells that the production continues, as the actors are being called back to reshoot the final scene of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two over Christmas break. This scene happens years down the road, as Harry, Ron, and Hermione see their own children off to Hogwarts at Platform 9 and 3/4 at King’s Cross Station. Apparently, two days was far too rushed to get the shots they wanted on location, so the reshoots will be happening on a set at Leavesden.
There’s just one minor problem: as pictured above, the lovely Emma Watson, who plays Hermione Granger, cut her hair as a way to say “Right, you’re entering a new phase of your life now.” Producers now need to seek out a wig to replace her long hair. It can’t be too much of an issue, though, since Hermione is older at this point in the film, so the wig doesn’t have to be an exact match for her earlier hair.
I’d be more concerned about the make-up used to age the young trio; according to reports, the make-up was so overdone that the characters appeared elderly instead of middle-aged.[The Daily Mail via Perez Hilton]
