I can understand why
as I explained to my nephew, the last book (in movie format) is going to be too long for one sitting. I'll make "The Ten Commandments" seem short by comparison (though not as long as "Berlin Alexanderplatz").

Except I don't see how they can split it and have enough material... Not that much happened in the last book. A lot of it was "and then this happened followed by this and they all had toast" types of descriptions. A decent chunk of the last book is things that would be so much shorter in a film format that I just don't see this going well. The only way would be if they expanded on some of the areas that were lacking.

Maybe they'll fix some of the major pacing problems that were in the book.

I just hope they don't plan to spend most of the first movie watching our heroes out in the wood angsting. If ever there was a sequence that made it clear nobody was actively editing a book... :(

Yeah... I keep being tempted to edit it as I read. >_>

Me too.. and I've read Potter fanfic that did a better job. But y'know, it has just occurred to me that this in itself may be the second great thing Rowling has done besides interesting kids in reading books. Interested kids, and a lot of other people too, in WRITING them. Rather like the way Gary Gygax, by issuing original D&D as an incomplete game inspired so many of us to come up with our own rules, and in many cases own games.
