In a set of new interviews from the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows which took place last month, producers David Heyman and David Barron, director David Yates, and actors Tom Felton, Bonnie Wright, and Jessie Cave spoke about the series, from the first days of filming Sorcerer's Stone to the current final battle sequences in Deathly Hallows, which, Heyman said, are rooted in the characters involved.

David Heyman gave a bit of a teaser about both Deathly Hallows movies, talking about Part I: the road movie, and Part II with the final battle scenes.


“Ultimately, what makes these books work, what I love about the books, is that for all the spectacle, for all the adventure, (there are) the characters.” Part I will be “the road movie” with the young stars on the run, Heyman says. The final battle comes in Part II. “And what we are trying to do in this final battle, as much as we can, is root it in characters! For me, it’s really all about the characters and it’s about the people who are battling and, if you’re invested in that, that is what will make it work!”

David Yates considers where he sees his three stars in the future in terms of their professional career:

“Dan will continue acting and maybe directing. I think he’s interested in that.

“Rupert will continue acting. Rupert is one of the most original people you will ever meet, really lovely. He’s a one-off. And I think Rupert is a really talented actor with great comic timing.

“Emma, if she wants, can be a movie star. She is hugely talented and incredibly in touch with her imagination. She is fiercely intelligent and I think she could do whatever she chooses to do.”

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be released on November 19, 2010 and July 15, 2011.
