Dan Radcliffe Talks About Differences Between "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" and "Deathly Hallows: Part 2"

Now that "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" is in theatres, Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) has further elaborated on the differences between "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" and "Deathly Hallows: Part 2":

"The last movie is going to be really, really fast-paced and a load of action in it, and it is like a war film," Radcliffe told Reuters. "If we had done this book in one film, the stuff that would have got cut is most of this film."

However, it's Part 1 that the actor finds more appealing because it contains the most character development.

"Part 1, Radcliffe added, is "so sedate compared to what the next one is going to be like. The next film, because you've had all the plot set up already, you can just kind of enjoy the insanity of all the action."

Radcliffe also said that the cast and crew felt a tremendous amount of pressure to get the final two films just right. As a result, some scenes were being rewritten the day before they were shot.

"It was constantly moving and had a less settled feel than the other ones had had," he said.

Deathly Hallows Part 1 opened Friday with a franchise-best $125.1 million bow, winning the weekend. Part 2 is scheduled to open in July. ABC Family recently acquired TV rights to both movies.

I read the book yet again, and I can’t WAIT for Part 2! But, the slower it happens, the more Harry Potter gets to live on!

I finally saw Part 1 on Thanksgiving day and my first thought when it ended was “I need Part 2 now!” My mom was the same way. Seeing it again next weekend!

Rewriting the day before is not a good sign. lol… I just can’t wait to see the two parts merged into one film in the end, it’s gonna be so much better then… and CANT WAIT for the deleted material! You think there will be an extended version in the end? Yates said there where like 10 minutes of deleted footage, which I think would make the whole difference… part one was too much about the action than the actual story.

After my third viewing of DH1, this interview just reinforces for me how glad I am they split it up into two films. So far this film is my favorite, and I suspect it may still be even after DH2 is out. I love the quieter character development stuff. So much of it got cut when they adapted the other books into films; I’m so thrilled they chose to do things this way.
