Deathly Hallows Filming Update: Sirius Black's Motorbike is Back!

Check it out! The flying motorbike belonging to Sirius Black is back, as witnessed in new location photos for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Although not so airborne as in the books, you can see these new pics (more here all courtesy of HP4U) of stunt doubles for Hagrid and Harry zooming along the Dartford-Thurrock River Crossing tunnel and bridge express  way in Kent, England as they did a sequence to be used for the Seven Potters scene. Neither Dan Radcliffe nor Robbie Coltrane were present for the filming. reports that "the bulk of the shoot was centered on obtaining wide shots of the pair being chased into the tunnel. Harry wearing a grey hoodie with a stripe down the arm and wand at the ready, Hagrid, in his familiar huge coat and sporting his goggles sped at around 30 mph in real time speed, weaving in and out of traffic with great effect. For Friday morning, we were treated to further perspective shots of the pair racing through the tunnels, despite the oncoming traffic, weaving in and out with Hagrid seemingly kicking out at any vehicles which came too close and Harry casting spells to his rear."
Other filming for the scenes will take place at both Leavesden and on location, rumored to be Hartfordshire over the next few weeks.

Thanks much to, ONTD, SS, and all who owled!

I have a huge problem with these pictures. I thought they were supposed to be flying. If they change that I am going to be wicked upset. I mean what is supposed to happen to hedwig? you know.

very cool pictures, i’m sure they’ll have to film the flying scenes in the studio, they wouldn’t be able to film those out in the open like the pictures we’re seeing right now

I will be interested in how this plays out in the movie. Hope we do get the battle in the sky.

I’m sure they will also be flying, but they will have to do that at the studio in front of a green screen, so we won’t be seeing that!

I really hope the chase is in the sky. Otherwise it would be really underwhelming.

Ugh, Typical Potter fanatics. they see three pictures and already they’re like like: “OMG! They are supposed to fly but they’re just driving on the highway! OMG! This movie is totally ruïned, I hate David Yates!! First he makes Tonks’ hair purple instead of pink and now this!”
Please get a grip. If you litteraly want the book on the screen, just download the book and read in on the screen. Jo Rowling respects the changes in the films, why can’t you?
