David Yates: "Deathly Hallows" a "big opera, a great big epic, with huge battles"

The March 2010 issue of Total Film Magazine appears to have a small report on the upcoming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" films which features a few new quotes from director David Yates, actress Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), and screenwriter Steve Kloves. A report on SS notes comments made by David Yates, who expands on earlier comments which described Part One of "Deathly Hallows" as "a road film," by saying that the film "[is] a refugee story about three kids cut off from everything they know and everybody they love, being pursued relentlessly by people who want to murder them." He goes on to describe the second part of the film as a "big opera, a great big epic, with huge battles."
The report continues, featuring a quote from Miss Watson who comments on a new "structure" for the film by saying: “The others have this structure. You know, we come into the Great Hall and there’s the opening talk. And that’s gone." The report concludes by relating comments made by screenwriter Steven Kloves, who says that the ultimate split of the film "allow[s] us to stretch a bit with the characters and give them the proper send-off."
The issue is said to be on newsstands now; if you come across a copy of the issue, please do email scans to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A refugee story about three kids cut off from everything they know and everybody they love, being pursued relentlessly by people who want to murder them….
WOW! Really can’t wait to see it!
It certainly sounds promising, but then again all hype directors, actors & writers give sound promising especially when it’s their project. They are trying to promote it. I’m just hoping all the excitement doesn’t fizzle out.
For Dobby to be in both films, the split must be at Malfoy Manor after the Trio is turned over to the Death Eaters by the Snatchers. Perhaps the first part will end with Hermione in Bellatrix’s clutches and the others locked up?
I think splitting the films where Josh Herdman said, after Harry, Ron & Hermione get picked up by the Snatchers would work well.
