"Harry Potter" Sleight-Of-Hand: Dobby's Disappearing Act

by | October 9, 2006 | Comments

Looks like someone’s cast a nasty disappearing spell (written outum scripto!) on "Harry Potter" creature Dobby, since the CGI-powered timid house elf won’t be seen in "Order of the Phoenix."

MTV got the word on the Dobby no-show from actor Toby Jones, who voiced the feeble but well-intentioned character in 2002’s "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets:"

"I know that the filmmakers have a problem with each new film because the books are getting longer — there’s so much to include in them," Jones remarked."

Although it’s looking like Dobby won’t be back in "Harry Potter" movie-land anytime soon, fans of the J.K. Rowling super series will meet a new house elf in next summer’s "Order of the Phoenix" when the decidedly un-Dobby-like Kreacher graces the big-screen.

Meanwhile, if you really miss the sound of Dobby’s voice, you can check out Jones live-acting as Truman Capote in this month’s limited release, "Infamous."
