We have a new interview with producer David Heyman from Parade, where Heyman discusses among other things his feelings about finishing the movies, and how he feels about Harry Potter fans:

On the end of Harry Potter.

“It’s mixed feelings. I’m very excited for the audience to see the film,
but at the same time there’s a sadness. I’ve been working with these
people for so long, and we always knew at the end of each film that we
were coming back for one more, and that’s no longer the case. So that’s
quite sad. Working on Harry Potter has been the most incredible
odyssey. It’s been the gift of all gifts. That being said, I’m very
excited about having the time to face new challenges.”

He’s grateful to the Potter fans.

“They’ve been so unbelievably supportive and incredibly generous. They
have really allowed us the opportunity to make the films we have.
They’ve been so loyal. It’s been an incredible journey, and the fans are
really the reason why, because without them there would be no films.”

Heyman goes on to discuss his favorite Harry Potter characters and how he’ll show the movies to his young son. You can read the rest of the article here.

Thank you.Avatar ImageHarrypotter4 says: I hope that the battle scene is not to short and i cant wait for the 15th!!!!!! Avatar Imagewillowandlaylasmom says: I think that they have always done so well with the films... How nearly impossible it is to please every reader! I can't wait! I guess after this- we will all become quite the Pottermore addicts LOL!!!

I'm going to die!!!!!Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: I can totally relate to David Heyman: I'm really horrified that it's going to end, but on the other hand, I'm just so excited to watch the movie! =]Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: Sounds like it’s gonna be a good movie! Avatar Imageele0206 says: I HAVE SEEN IT!! I've seen the movie yesterday, because in Italy it came out on the 13th. It's....it's...I don't even know how to describe it. You definitely WON'T be disappointed. The battle's not short, and every character has his moment (except, maybe, for Ron, who doesn't get to do much in this one). It's epic and sad and moving and everything you'd expect from it. McGonagall is great, as well as Neville. Beware of the Forest scenes, 'cause you'll cry. That's it, I don't want to spoiler too much, but I'm sure, really sure you will love it. I can't believe it's the end of it. It really isn't. The books and the movies will always be with us.
