It’s the last day of the big-movie panel Hall H programming here at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, and starting it off was the Warner Bros panel, which included Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
It was a quick presentation, with Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in the film franchise, being the sole representative for the upcoming two-part film finale.
The 22-year-old Felton, who was 12 when he started on the first Harry Potter film, made his first appearance at San Diego Comic-Con and was very pleased to be before the crowd, which were very welcoming of him.
Felton’s main objective for the panel was to introduce new footage from Deathly Hallows. Check out the description of the footage here below.
Allow me to say that what we were shown was amazing, and if you are a Harry Potter fan, you will quite happy. I had chills watching it, and yes, it is dark, very dark. I’m still blown away right now.
Note – I did my best to write down everything I saw, of course, I couldn’t get everything, but I think I got quite a bit.
The footage opens on Harry and also Voldemort. Voldemort is saying something to Harry about how his friends have hidden him and put themselves in danger because Harry won’t come out of hiding and face Voldemort.
We hear Voldemort talking to Harry while getting clips from the film.
[I think he says: “You have allowed your friends to hide your existence from me instead confronting your fate.”}
Voldemort threatens Harry: “If you will not give yourself up, I shall punish every last man, woman, and child who tries to conceal you form me.”
Then we see quick clips of battles and people being hurt.
Finally, we see Harry come to face Voldemort, who says “The boy who lived come to die,” and starts to say the “avada kedavra” curse on Harry.
There’s also some footage we’ve seen from the trailer, like Hermione holding up her wand in one hand with her own hand bloodied (in the trailer, the blood was taken out).
We see the group of Harry Potter doubles that are used as decoys.
There’s the sky battle sequence with Hagrid on the flying motorcycle with side car.
Bill Nighy’s as Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour says “Our world has faced no greater threat than it has today but your Ministry is strong.”
Snape is sitting with Voldemort and the Dark Lord’s followers. He’s telling Voldemort that Harry Potter is being taken to a safehouse to be hidden and that it wouldn’t be wise to try and get him there.
Hermione, Ron, and Harry in hiding in the wood, listening to the radio for news. There’s a message about what’s happening, how their world is under attack by the Dark forces.
Ron yells to Harry about how he listens to the radio every day to hear if Ginnie or his other family members are being named among the killed. Harry angrily responds: “You don’t think I listen too?” Ron yells to Harry that he doesn’t understand what it’s like to be worried like this because Harry has no family, which incites Harry to attack Ron. Hermione tries to get them to stop.
The last scene is Harry and Voldemort with their wands locked, with Voldemort’s voiceover: “Only I can live forever.”
