It was reported that a huge blaze wrecked the Hogwarts set, after a battle scene went spectacularly wrong. According to the report, explosives used in action sequences, set light to scenery for the wizardry school, and that firefighters battled for forty minutes to bring the flames under control, but the set, centerpiece for the films Battle of Hogwarts climax, was left badly damaged. It was later confirmed, that the fire was greatly exaggerated, and that the set that had been damaged, was going to need to be rebuilt anyway, for use in another scene. Some actors and actresses were still filming at the studio, but none of the movie's biggest stars, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, or Rupert Grint, were involved. No one was injured. See more »
In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, when Harry revisits Godric's Hollow, the entire roof and much of the walls of the upper floor of the Potter home have been destroyed. But in Snape's memory of the aftermath of the attack on the Potters the upper floor is still undamaged. This is because the attack was to kill the Harry to prevent a prophecy coming true, and no damage was done to the house. After their death the house was abandoned and would probably have been vandalised over the years as well as deteriorating until eventually it looked the way it looked when Harry returned to it.

It's beautiful here.
It was our aunt's. We used to come here as kids. The order uses it now as a safe house. What's left of us at least.

Muggles think these keep away evil, but they're wrong.
I need to talk to the goblin.

Endings are usually the problems of most movie series. They usually end up being mediocre & unsatisfying or they are made to cash in people. The great thing about Harry Potter movies, the filmmakers are taking their job seriously. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is a great ending of the series. It's more than throwing a lot of action and exposition. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is one of those conclusion that actually care about the series.
Deathly Hallows part 1 is just the first and the half of the second act of the story. Deathly Hallows part 2 begins straight forward to its continuation of the last Harry Potter film. And of course, if you haven't seen Deathly Hallows Part 1 or any of the Harry Potter movies, you'll be confused to death. Obvious isn't it? It's pretty clever to make the whole Deathly Hallows story like a slow burn. It started from silent thrills, plans, and escapes to big and loud battles.
The series doesn't only end with big and loud action. It also gives us some nostalgia from the old Harry Potter films. And we still get to see more of the characters. The movie itself is pretty exciting. It's a good choice to let David Yates direct the rest of the Potter films because he made this series darker and bolder. Aside from that the film still has its compelling moments like the Prince's Tale scene.
No need to tell about the performances of Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and the rest of the cast because they are obviously good to their characters but there is one actor here is worth mention and that is Alan Rickman. We already knew him as Snape but there is one scene where we see more of his character and his performance was excellent. The filmmaking, the special effects is obviously good. The music score really made the battle scenes epic and perfect for a final film.
For me it's really hard to write a review about Harry Potter. Is it because I never read the books or I'm not really a huge fan but in my opinion Harry Potter is a successful series. If I rank all the movie conclusions, this could be number three because nothing beats Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. Either you're a fan or not, you'll love this series. And yes, this is another remarkable movie series.
