So I just read that Producers are expected to announce soon that the final Harry Potter book will be divided into two movies. One to come out in Novemebr of 2010 and one in May of 2011.
I have mixed feelings.
I think this could be good b/c one of my biggest grips about the last movie is that I thought they could have done more and put more "stuff" into the film. So as long as they make sure with this 7th book to include a good amount of information into the 2 movies and it doesn't feel like it is dragging, then I think it would be good. I am also glad they are filming the two movies together and we will not have to wait another year and a half for the second part of the movie.
You do wonder, is it one last ditch effort to get more money and create more hype. I mean you go to see the first half, you will see the second.
As long as they have the best interest of the content of the last book in mind and do that last book justice, I will be happy!
