Daniel Radcliffe Talks to Total Film About "Deathly Hallows" Split

Radcliffe Interviews

The upcoming issue of Total Film magazine will include a special commemorative feature on the Harry Potter universe in preparation for the "Deathly Hallows: Part 2" release this summer.

A preview from their interview with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) is now online in which he goes into greater detail about the decision to split the film:

“If you come to me with a satisfactory adaptation of the seventh book into one film, then we can have this debate! All the books from the Goblet of Fire onwards were big, but with every one, you could cut swathes out without detracting from the main story."
On why this one’s different, Radcliffe explained: “In the Deathly Hallows there are no subplots. It’s all the same story and it’s hard to lose a page.”
The latest issue of Total Film goes on sale Thursday, May 12th.

I agree. Not splitting Deathly Hallows would have gutted the story line. I love the complicated characters and the plot lines when reading a book, but in a movie it is hard to have various plot lines threading through it. It can be done, but it is difficult. I have mixed emotions about the last part of DH. It does signify the end of reading a wonderful series of books, but the last movie will be SO exciting!

I think it is horrible that TOTAL FILM magazine steals a line reserved for the LORD’s Prayer in the Holy Bible! It’s pretty pathetic they have to be blasphemous when writing an article about the last movie of the greatest fiction book/movie series of all time!

I bought the magazine, and it’s a very nice supplement, with lots of entertaining comments on the previous films.
