HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS – PART 2 Concept Art Shows Alternate Endings for Voldemort

     January 31, 2012

It’s incredibly depressing that the Harry Potter franchise is over. No more wands, no more magic, and no more Hogwarts. That’s why I’m super happy that we’ve got a bit of Harry Potter news to share today, even if it’s fairly minor. As one can imagine, director David Yates and his creative team spent quite a bit of time deciding exactly how to visualize Voldemort’s ultimate demise in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. They ended up sending the uber-villain off in relatively gorgeous fashion, as he slowly disintegrated into a gust of ashes.

Now concept artist Andrei Riabotvitchev has released some stills from a few of the different visualizations of Voldemort’s defeat. A couple of them are kind of dark, and I still favor the final version, but it’s neat to see what could have been. Hit the jump to check out the images, which also include a few close-up shots of the giants. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 is on Blu-ray and DVD now (but not for long).
