According to MuggleNet the final Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
, will now be broken up into three parts, the last of which will be released in 2013
What even happened in Deathly Hallows to warrant not one, not two, but THREE full-length movies??? I read it in my usual haze of midnight release party sleep deprivation and crazy so I don't really remember, but from what I recall, the book goes something like this:
1. Harry and Ron and Hermione take a gap year to go camping.
2. Everyone is killed off screen.
3. JKR is suddenly possessed by the spirit of Norman Rockwell; writes last chapter
Was there REALLY
enough story in that book to support a trilogy? Maybe they'll just fill in the time with lots of shots of Daniel Radcliffe
yelling. Harry: WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?
The entire business just smells of franchise-milking greed and bloated attempts at storytelling. But really, I'm not so much mad at them for trying to accio another $12 from my fangirl wallet as I am mad at myself for already knowing I'm going to fork it over.CORRECTION:
Seems we were duped by one of those fake news Aprils Fool's Day things
that drives stopitsomemore
utterly batshit every April 1st. Deathly Hallows will be only two films
. (I think my point still stands, though.) Thanks to language_escapes
for calling us on our sad, sad gullibility. Here, have a picture of the Fail Whale
as a token of our fuck up:FAIL.
