Today is the final day of shooting for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

We’ve known for a while that the final day of filming for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows would be in June.  We now know that today – Saturday, June 12th – is the one.

Warwick Davis – who we recently interviewed on MuggleCast – confirmed that this final day involves a scene with Griphook.  As he posted on his Twitter:

The end of an Era – today is officially the last day of principal photography on ‘Harry Potter’ – ever. I feel honoured to be here as the director shouts cut for the very last time. Farewell Harry & Hogwarts, it’s been magic! x …and goodbye Griphook!

Test shoots for the film began in January 2009, and regular filming started the following month.

Congratulations to Warner Brothers, David Heyman, David Yates, David Barron, JK Rowling, Stuart Craig, Steve Kloves, and the entire cast and crew!
