Spoiler For Potterheads: New Death For Major Character In ‘Deathly Hallows 2′

Friday, January 21 by

I have some information that you may or may not want to know. If you:

…you should not read past the picture below of Harry Potter handling another wizard’s wand, cause there are spoilers ahead about a major character’s death.

Spoilers ahead.

You have been warned.

Okay, let’s stop shitting around here. Snape totally bites it in the last movie. He gets killed by Voldemort, who believes Snape’s wand will allow him to kill Harry Potter. In the books, Snape is killed in a place called Shrieking Shack, but they changed his final wizarding place to the Boathouse. Here’s art director Andrew Ackland-Snow on why they diverted from the book:

“We wanted to change a bit where Snape dies. In the book, he dies on the Shrieking Shack, and we wanted to get him out from, not a conventional interior, but from that kind of box, to do it in a more dramatic atmosphere. We asked J.K. if she agreed for that to happen in there, because we hadn’t really seen it before. We made a crystal house, and you can see what happens in the boathouse from there – Are you listening Harry? – but also the school is in flames…and she loved it. Besides, it’s a very romantic place to die. Snape dies in a extremely good way, I gotta say.”

Snape dies. New location. Rowling approved. Consider yourself somewhat spoiled. (HPANA via Screenrant)
