  2. adam Says:

    only* reading*

  3. adam Says:

    dursleys* points* sorry i was doing many things at once when i posted this

  4. Micaela Says:

    It may be a dumb question, but I just want to know:
    Where Hermione’s hands bloody in the actual film?

  5. kat Says:

    Hey pottercast. I would love to hear more about the wedding! Also, this is just a comment, but by the way Edward described the way Dobby is reintroduced makes me so excited! Him being there in the movie before he dies will really make a much bigger impact.

  6. Leo Says:

    I have two if that’s alright.

    -I was wondering how the Death Eater and Voldemort’s overall presence in the wizarding world was in the film. Was there a sense that the trio could be caught and taken away at any moment and did it feel like the world really was taken over by Voldemort?

    -How do you think that regular movie-going audience will react to this film as opposed to the previous Potters.

  7. Aziz Says:

    Does Narcissa Malfoy get any lines? Do we see her looking out for Draco and Lucius?

    When Harry is being comforted by Hermione during the graveyard scene, is Bathilda shown after those two have their moment together or during?

    I’m sorry, but I’m dying dying dying for these questions to be answered. It would be greatly appreciated.

  8. Ana Says:

    1. How did the trio learned of Potterwatch? (From what I understand they were listening to it before Ron leaves).

    2. What is exactly is mentioned of the horcruxes? Does the trio discuss the probable items used as horcruxes? Is Hufflepuffs cup mentioned at all?

  9. Riley Says:

    Being a Remus fan, and hearing that the Grimmauld Place scene where he and Harry fight is not in the film, I was wondering how his character and the plot line with him and Tonks was handled. Was his character given some justice as compared to the past two films? I heard about a good scene between him and Harry after the Seven Potters; how was that? Basically, any info relating to Lupin would be greatly appreciated.

  10. Ana Says:

    Ooh almost forgot…

    3. Did Grindelwald really sell Dumbledore out by telling Voldemort the Elder’s wand location? (In the book Dumbledore and Harry discuss this in King’s Cross, as how maybe he had truly reformed…)

  11. Jackie Says:

    During Hermione’s torture in Malfoy Manor, do we see actually see her or is It more off screen
    And we just hear her screaming?

    I’ve been reading reports that the scenes at Godric’s Hollow and Malfoy Manor seemed rushed. What did you think about these scenes?

    Does the movie show Harry’s obsession
    With the hallows?

    Are there any lines in the movie that were taken straight from the book?

  12. Tia Wilson Says:

    Were the deaths of Fred, Tonks and Lupin as powerful as they were in the book? And was Harry’s talk with Dumbledore while Harry was half dead as good as it was in the book?

  13. Tia Wilson Says:

    Is the Burro explained? In the 6th film it was burnt to the ground. How is it suddenly back and ready for the wedding?

  14. Mosaico Says:

    Umbridge has any dueling scene in the ministry infiltration?

  15. Brian Says:

    Was the power plant in the film? Also, how long were the Burrow scenes

  16. Ana Says:

    And another one…

    4) Does Harry find Lily’s letter in Sirius’ room?

  17. Luci Says:

    .. I been checking in all the reports and no one has really talked about this… Can you go into detail Ron’s departure and the Malfoy Manor? Moslty on how they acted, their emotionals reactions, like Is Ron and Harry’s fight intense? were they shouts? physical fighting? or was it toned down? In the Malfoy Manor, does Ron goes crazy like in the book where he is half sobbing? How was Harry’s reaction to Hermione’s screaming? Did Bellatrix put the “mudblood” word in Hermione’s arm with the wand or with the knife?THANK YOU VERY MUCH

  18. GinaC Says:

    Please tell us about the Dursleys Departing. Do Harry and Dudley shake hands, or is there any dialogue there?

  19. Adam Says:

    Is the cinematography good in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1? How does it compare to the cinematography in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince?

  20. Martin Says:

    my skype name macedonianpotter

  21. Angela B Says:

    Does Harry remain as himself, cousin Barney or under the invisibility cloak for the wedding?

    And I have to ask, since she’s my favorite, how much do we see Luna (is she at the wedding, is she taken off the train, is she in the basement?).


  22. Brian Says:

    That shot of Ollivander we saw in the trailer. Was that at Malfoy Manor or was it when he was being tortured by Voldemort.

  23. Brian Says:

    Is there more dialogue to the Harry/Ron fight than we heard from the Comic Con audio?

  24. Brian Says:

    Do we see Dobby’s grave in the film?
    That shot of Filch in the official trailer. Was that in the film

  25. Brian Says:

    When do the titles appear? Does the dhot of Hermione pan up to reveal the titles? Or does the title appear in front of dark clouds

  26. Don Says:

    Was the harry/hermione locket scene CGI? Or did Dan and Emma really act it out?

  27. AlexKost Says:

    Do they cut the fight between Harry and Lupin?

  28. Aoife ('Ee-Fah') Says:

    I already sent this on Skype, but just in case that’s inappropriate :

    Hi PotterCast, can Edward talk about the scenes preceding the WB logo? I’ve read, in another report, that the scene where Hermione obliviates her parents’ memories is quite poignant.

    Also, does Harry lose / break his wand in the Bathilda Bagshot – Nagini  scene? If so, is it made clear that he’s really cut up about it?

    BTW,  I know my name is a HORROR to pronounce – it’s pronounced Ee-fah, but I’ll answer to Eva.

    • Why were the Trio hiding from dogs?

  37. abandonedboyjon Says:

  79. Yerko Difonis Says:

    Here here! Please upload the show! Pleaasee!

  80. Yerko Difonis Says:

    Come ooon guys! Put it up already! :wavesarms:

  81. TheAnon Says:

    Anytime you’re ready, guys…

  82. Derrick Says:

    Does it usually take this long for the podcasts to be uploaded after they are recorded, even live episodes?

  83. Yerko Difonis Says:

    I don’t know, but it’s really getting annoying! Maybe we should organize a protest for making us wait an inordinate amount of time for the freaking show!

  84. Yerko Difonis Says:

    Comon guys! (pleading) We’re still waiting here! Please put up the show!

  85. Derrick Says:

    Yeah this has been waaay too long of a wait. Especially for a live show. Is there even any editing needed on a live one? hehe.

  86. TheAnon Says:

    Yerko, Derek, everyone, just wait! They don’t get paid for doing this, and we’re lucky they’re doing it in the first place! If you’re bored, read a book.

  87. YERKO Difonis Says:

    Accio PotterCast 225!

  88. admin Says:

    Hey dudes! About to put the show up now! Sorry about the wait, had some weird audio issues and had to rely on our group recording from skype, and with having Edward AND frankie AND melissa on the call remotely (usually its just melissa on the call) the quality was reduced significantly. I tried to improve it best I could, and its not bad now.

    Anyhow, high hopes that next week will go a lot better. We are going to start recording our own video for each host AND make the whole thing widescreen – I redid the graphics and everything 🙂 It’ll be awesome, trust me 🙂

  89. Emily Says:

    After the return of Ron, does Ron say to Harry if he remembers when Hermione sent the birds to him?

  90. YERKO Difonis Says:

    FINALLY! (jumps up and down)

  91. Brian Says:


  92. abandonedboyjon Says:

    okay, I hate to criticize because i know you guys work really hard on the show, but I have to be honest and say that I concur with Melissa’s notion of having Edward on again. I was kinda disappointed because many of the subjects have already been discussed all over the Internet, and presumably that’s because these are notable attributes of the film, but I wanted some new stuff, you know? I mean it’s 2 and a 1/2 hours of new footage, I HOPae there’s more discuss than this!

  93. abandonedboyjon Says:

    and when I say HOPae I mean hope*

  94. Sean Says:

    What if Hedwig is killed by Snape thinking: “Voldemort will know which Potter is real if the owl is flying around him, so to protect him I need to kill the owl.”

  95. Ben Says:

    I can’t get the newest podcast from my iPad

  96. Kirsten Says:

    Where did they split Part 1 and Part 2??!!
