Lestrange goings on? Harry Potter stars return to studios to film 'mini-movie'
A ninth Harry Potter “mini-movie” is being filmed according to reports suggesting that cast-members including Helena Bonham Carter (who plays death eater Bellatrix Lestrange) have been back in character filming scenes at the Potter studios in Hertfordshire.
“The cast have really enjoyed getting back together – they are so tight knit,” a source told The Sun newspaper.
The movie will only be available to visitors at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Florida and two new Hogwarts entertainment parks currently under construction in California and Japan.
The eighth film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, was billed as the final in the £5 billion franchise based on JK Rowling’s hugely successful books.
“The shooting schedule is nowhere near as long as the films, so though filming has been intense, the stars have enjoyed being able to pop in and out,” the source said.
No mention was made as to whether the films trio of lead actors, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, had been spied on set as yet.
