The Harry Potter Wizard's Collection website has released a short clip from the "Creating the World of Harry Potter" documentary, which will be included as part of the special features of this limited edition DVD collection. Watch here or below as J. K. Rowling and screenwriter Steve Kloves discuss the effort that went into writing Harry, Ron, and Hermione:

The description of the documentary this is taken from is as follows:

Over the course of ten years, screenwriter Steve Kloves worked tirelessly with author J.K. Rowling to develop her magical books into films. From the beginning, Kloves had to decide what to keep, what to change and what to cut while staying true to Rowling's vision, initially without even knowing how the series ended! Learn the story behind the stories as they sit down together for an intimate, free-flowing conversation.

The Harry Potter Wizard's Collection will be released on September 7th.

@hermione198k…Not to become a Kloves-apologist, but I think Movie Ron just took longer to be comfortable in his own skin. He wasn’t as confident as Book Ron, and was more immature and selfish. This allowed Movie Ron to be taken on more of an arc, from a bumbling sort of sidekick through a dark period of jealousy and self-doubt, to a final resolution of knowing who he wanted to be with and professing his loyalties. For the life of me, I still can’t quite see what the complainers are talking about; nothing against their opinions, but I think Kloves’ version of Ron is very true to the character, and Rowling must have thought so, too. I guess I value her viewpoint regarding her own characters over anyone else’s, no matter how much of a fan they are.

I’ve ordered these but am a bit annoyed that they never released films 7 and 8 as ultimate editions.
