David Yates, David Heyman, and Tom Felton Discuss "Deathly Hallows: Part 2"

In a new article in USA Today, director David Yates and producer David Heyman talked about the general atmosphere of "Deathly Hallows: Part 2":

"The very last one's a big old epic, with lots of battles and dragons and goblins. It's going to be operatic. And then it's over," says director David Yates.
"The decision to split this into two was purely a creative one. By doing two, there's more detail and more time to engage with the characters in the way that we do," says producer David Heyman. "It allows the audience time to bring themselves to it. The audience has the time to project their own feelings and engage with the characters."

Both Yates and Heyman, as well as Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), also discussed some of the feelings that came with ending the film series:

Asked if he's feeling nostalgic, Yates says, "I don't think we ever took it for granted. We'd sometimes joke about what we're going to do when it's all over. We'll never have this amount of resources again. We're going to have to go back into the real world, after living in this bubble."
"One of the greatest gifts that Jo Rowling and the whole franchise has given (the actors) is that we can really end up making a kid's night just from saying hello," Felton says. "I was 12 when we started shooting; 13 when it came out. I'm 23 now. It's been a long journey.
"You don't see people growing up, not when you're there. It's only when you look back at the films. ... Look at Daniel! He was bloody tiny. My face was like a basketball. But those angelic features seem to have left me," he jokes.
"The last film will be it. It's never going to be like this again. You never take this for granted," Heyman says. "You want to do the end justice, so there's a little bit of anxiety."

That is a good interview! It must have been hard for actors and staff on the HP movies when they realized that the last movie was in the bag. It is true that growing up in the HP films was almost normal for the young people. They would not realize they had grown until they looked back at the previous movies.

I don’t think Tom’s face looked like a basketball!(Though that comment is hilarious) I think he looked cute and now he’s sexy!

HP is definitely making history. It will always be remembered and cherished. The characters are timeless and thank goodness we know that even though the films may be finished production, there will always be someone who is just now discovering the Potter magic.
