This could be a very good idea. Or totally ruin the tril… no wait, oh yeah septology, that’s right.
So, for the seventh and final film in the septology (7 books, that looks like it should mean seven parts, right?) the studios are debating the release of a parts 1 and 2 to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, a move that will at least double their box office takings for the final book’s adaptation.

Personally I haven’t read the last two books, but considering the size of the 4th book, which I also have on DVD, I don’t think it’s a bad idea at all to split something as epic as a Harry Potter book into two parts. I was surprised how well Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix turned out, but judging by how epic people say the final book this sounds like a good option.
