Now that "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" is in theatres, Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) has further elaborated on the differences between "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" and "Deathly Hallows: Part 2":
"The last movie is going to be really, really fast-paced and a load of action in it, and it is like a war film," Radcliffe told Reuters. "If we had done this book in one film, the stuff that would have got cut is most of this film."
However, it's Part 1 that the actor finds more appealing because it contains the most character development.
"Part 1, Radcliffe added, is "so sedate compared to what the
next one is going to be like. The next film, because you've had all the
plot set up already, you can just kind of enjoy the insanity of all the
Radcliffe also said that the cast and crew felt a tremendous amount of
pressure to get the final two films just right. As a result, some scenes
were being rewritten the day before they were shot.
"It was constantly moving and had a less settled feel than the other ones had had," he said.
Deathly Hallows Part 1 opened Friday with a franchise-best $125.1 million bow, winning the weekend. Part 2 is scheduled to open in July. ABC Family recently acquired TV rights to both movies.
Just saw DH1 for the 3rd time tonight, definitely read for the war film DH2 should be.
its going to be amazing!!! XD
Ya! I want to see it now!!!!!!!
I dont know. I guess when they are still in the process of writing as they continue to act, makes me nervous… I do hope that Hermione doesnt die in coming into contact with Voldemort.
Awww i just cant wait for DH2. i might die waiting that long
Will there be proper extended blu ray editions of ALL 8 films ? Lets hope so but I fear that Warner Brothers do not care about the core fan base even half as much as did New line for The Lord of The Rings. Thats the basic and unavoidable problem.
I love it that they did it in two… they’ve really included most of the key-moments :D
Can’t wait for second part :-w
I think this will be the longest 6 months of my life! At least we have two movies, for twice the detail and excitement. I really can’t wait, but also don’t want to finish!
A countdown calendar to DH2, please? I am so glad that they split this into two. Personally, I think every book from GoF on should have been two movies to allow for character development. I am REALLY glad that they are trying to get things right. This changes in this movie were so much less significant than those in HBP. I am very pleased with it.
I have faith, part 2 will be awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I CANNOT WAIT!!! And to think, my maths exam is tomorrow, wish me luck!! Go Gryffindor!!!
I can’t wait for part 2!!!! It definitly will get my heart racing and up to speed.
I can’t wait for DH2. Actually, I can because I don’t want it to end!
My goodness! Such pressure! But all for the fans!
I just hope they don’t mess up, chapter 33, The Prince’s Tale, AR could really make that a breathtaking scene…one of the most emotional scenes in the series!! A tad sad they left out Lily’s letter in Sirius’s bedroom, but the Sword/Silver Doe/ Locket scene was really done excellently…Can’t wait for Part Deux!!
