The March 2010 issue of Total Film Magazine appears to have a small report on the upcoming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" films which features a few new quotes from director David Yates, actress Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), and screenwriter Steve Kloves. A report on SS notes comments made by David Yates, who expands on earlier comments which described Part One of "Deathly Hallows" as "a road film," by saying that the film "[is] a refugee story about three kids cut off from everything they know and everybody they love, being pursued relentlessly by people who want to murder them." He goes on to describe the second part of the film as a "big opera, a great big epic, with huge battles."
The report continues, featuring a quote from Miss Watson who comments on a new "structure" for the film by saying: “The others have this structure. You know, we come into the Great Hall and there’s the opening talk. And that’s gone." The report concludes by relating comments made by screenwriter Steven Kloves, who says that the ultimate split of the film "allow[s] us to stretch a bit with the characters and give them the proper send-off."
The issue is said to be on newsstands now; if you come across a copy of the issue, please do email scans to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ok.This is gonna be huge! And I feel I´m not gonna be disappointed.I´ve learnt how to watch the HP movies now.Do not confuse book and films,and you´re gonna be fine.Just understand the films are based on the books.That´s all. Siriusly,those movies are gonna kick some major arse!I´m gonna miss Hogwarts,though.Like I did in the book.C´mon! Year after year at Hogwarts! Impossible not to miss it. The ony part we get to see Hogwarts is in the end when it´s being destroyed because of the battle!
Realize that the films are not the books but come on, this is the last of HP. Can we at least have more than just a passing resemblance between the two? Sat thru HBP and wondered where in the name of heaven they got some of their hairbrained ideas, certainly not the book. Ahhhh one must be patient with the powers that be (WB).
