Dan Radcliffe Talks About Differences Between "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" and "Deathly Hallows: Part 2"

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 action."

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.

I’m just trying to think of all the things I can do to distract me. Things that I’ve come up with so far: NOTHING!

I CANNOT WAIT!!!! I am definitely re-reading the HP books and re-watching the films of course.

David Yates and Steve Cloves seem to prefer action to dialogue. There’s never any discussion between the characters, and most of the jokes have been dropped to maintain the ‘dark’ theme. Even black humour is better than no humour. It doesn’t bode well for DH2, but let’s hope the death eaters get soundly beaten for our amusement.

I like the idea of taking the deleted scenes that are on the seperate disc and putting them back into the full length film where they belong. That would be so cool.

WOW Part 1 was indeed AWESOME!!! If part 2 is going to move faster, I know I will have to see it 3 times before my mind will soak it all in, because I thought Part 1 moved in some scenes very fast!!! There were indeed some things that were changed around in Part 1, and I am looking forward to seeing Part 2 of Deathly Hallows!!!!!

I don’t necessarily want part 2 to materialize right now, right before Christmas.

Rather, I want to materialize AT part 2, in Orlando, in July, at LEAKYCON.

I can’t wait to see Part Two! I think it’s going to be much harder to keep up with, but probably more interesting.
