Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two Spoilers

CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS:

You’ve been warned. Do not read past this if you don’t want to know anything:

In the final chapters of The Deathly Hallows, fans know that Severus Snape is killed at the Shrieking Shack by Voldemort’s snake, Nagini. Though the iconic death is still a go, the location and tone of the scene have been dramatically changed.

Andrew Ackland-Snow, the art director for DH, reveals that the fall of Severus will happen at the Hogwart’s Boathouse, rather than the Shack. You’ll recall if you’re a fan that the Boathouse is a crystal structure that sits on the lake near Hogwarts. The idea is to give a more “dramatic” and “romantic” feel to Severus’ death.

And before you all get to booing because they’ve drastically changed something from the book, let us just add this: J.K. Rowling specifically signed off on this. In fact, according to Andrew, she “loved” the idea.
