This documentary helped me realize how hard it is to make a movie, especially one of this magnitude. We can talk about things we wish were different about the movies, but that doesn’t make them any less amazing. At the end when David Heyman started crying I was like, “Oh my gosh!” Everybody seems to be always so composed in other interviews, but this documentary was different because everybody seemed so vulnerable. Emma talking about her fear of people’s comments and not wanting to mess up made me want to give her a BIG hug. Dan talking about feeling like he was 10 was a great part too. I could really feel what the cast and crew were feeling while watching this – wow.

And I’m SO GLAD it’s online because I don’t have bluray. THANK YOU to Leaky and the YouTube uploader!

That was truly amazing. I never thought about how hard it would be for the ending for the cast. It was so hard to watch all the goodbyes and the final shoot of Dans and Ruperts and Emmas, to think about the pain of knowing that. It was a really well done doc. Harry potter lives forever.

potterlover is soooo right. I couldn’t believe the sudden hit of realization that these people are just people, i’ve always known that, but its so true.

Yeah… I couldn’t get through the first 2 minutes alone without bawling like a baby. Merlin, I love “Harry Potter” :)

What did the plasterer say about their work – like Hagrid who helps everyone and does not get recognized for it?
These movies are a HUGE testament to the artistry and skills of all these craftsmen who brought to life our beloved Harry Potter universe. They really should be given accolades for ten years’ work.

That was incredibly emotional. Harry Potter is really something that you will keep with you for the rest of your life, the interview was fantastic, but it pains me too see it being filmed with a green screen, because it shows that there isn’t really that magical world they’re filming in. Harry Potter is definitely my life, it has been my childhood and it has really moved me so much. It’s depressing to realise that it’s over, but we can hold together. I really love Harry Potter, words can’t explain how much. :’)
