Radcliffe and Rowling on the Harry Potter Generation: “Deathly Hallows: Part 2″ Blu-Ray Special Feature


Sep 21, 2011

MTV have released another clip from the upcoming Blu-Ray DVD of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2″ in which J.K. Rowling and Daniel Radcliffe talk about the Harry Potter generation in contrast with other phenomenon. The clip, which is region locked for everyone outside of the US, can be seen here on the MTV website or below.

Radcliffe says:

To a certain level, because [the characters in the books] exist in the collected consciousness of a generation, they do exist. I always think that’s one of the wonderful things about Potter and the Potter fanbase. If you think about the other big costume-wearing and that kind of stuff that goes
with it, things like Star Wars and Star Trek, but with it’s Potter, because
it started off as a literary thing, has created a generation of the
same kind of mentality of geeky thoroughness with an appetite for reading and literature,
which is kind of amazing.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling’s extremely accurate response is, “It was wonderful, wasn’t it? It was just the most wonderful thing”. The Blu-Ray will be released on the 11th November in the US.

Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: first cool! the interview was cool! Avatar ImageJoRowlingRocks says: Trying very hard to be calm, but first we have the news that the US gets the DVD almost a month before Britain, and now only people in the US can watch this clip. What's with the discrimination WB & MTV!!Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Leaky, the plural of 'phenomenon' is 'phenomena'. It should be 'in contrast with other phenomena'.Avatar Imagewitchmama says: Yeah, I'm going to have to agree with Jo. British books, author, stars, sets...Not very cool.Avatar Imagemoglet says: Not very pleased that we have to wait for the DVD for so much longer in the UK and then to have this clip which we can't watch, WB what are you thinking of? It's British talent that is the creative heart of these films, I'm not amused at feeling left out like this.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: It's not good. Britain is the land of Harry Potter. We are very happy and indeed proud to share him with the rest of the world, but we shouldn't be left out.Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: Considering that the UK has gotten everything first for the past 10 years, I think its only fair we get the DVD a few weeks before you. You have everything else after all, the studio tour, and the actors themselves!Avatar Imagezweasly says: Is it weird that I pre-ordered the Blu-Ray, but don't own a Blu-Ray player yet? I think that will be a purchase I make very soon!Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: LunaLuver, the Studio Tour hasn't even happened yet!Avatar ImageGryffindor Lioness101 says: I can't get it :(Avatar Imagemoonstone nox says: can't watch the clip... grrr :-(( Avatar Imagejennykawa says: I've always wished I could be in the Harry Potter movies, and I cannot wait until the final box set arrives (hopefully it will be an extended version). I did however get a small dream come true through a modeling gig for a makeover blog site. Check out my Ginny Weasely day at http://heidihastings.wordpress.com/2010/11/21/so-you-wanna-look-like-ginny-weasley/ ENJOY!Avatar ImageLinaHP says: You don't even know how happy I am that Harry Potter is not American - they don't deserve it!Avatar Imageharrypotter4258 says: cooliooAvatar Imagebellahawthorne says: I know U.K. Potterheads are upset about not getting the dvd before us, or being locked from clips, but that doesn't mean American fans or Americans are undeserving or unappreciative. American fans don't force companies to make the decisions they make. HP fans are supposed to be a family; yet some of the comments I've seen towards the U.S. are pretty disheartening. Avatar Imagebellahawthorne says: It shouldn't be the U.S. fans vs the U.K. fans - we all get what the people in control allow us to get...just my two cents...Avatar Imagemoglet says: It's not about US fans vs UK at all, not for me, it's about WB and their decisions, I'm happy for those in the US that they will get the film on DVD in November, but I think we should be getting it here in the UK very soon after if not on the same date, so I'm very disappointed.Avatar Imagesparkle9 says: awesomeAvatar Imageharrypotterfan808 says: @LinaHP That is VERY rude!Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: WHOO! Daniel and Jo, now that's what I want to see! It's way more interesting listening to their conversation then an interview! =)Avatar ImageResaPotter says: I can't watch it either!!!='(Avatar Image1HarryPotterFan123 says: Aww I can't watch it...Avatar Imagegirlatty1 says: Whoa - just guessing - but maybe a bigger market base for sales here in the U.S. and nothing to do with anything else.Avatar Imagehandhrfan18 says: i saw this already and i loved it. i also love how i get the dvd a month before britain does :]. i might get the huge box set...idk yet :DAvatar ImageTruckles says: Pretty disappointing to still have things region locked. *sigh* lets not get into fans vs fans though... it's companies. Very frustrating though that there are clips etc that I and many others can't watch because of the countries we live in.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: There's a brief clip from the conversation here, together with a transcript of some of the discussion: http://www.snitchseeker.com/harry-potter-news/video-daniel-radcliffe-and-j-k-rowlings-deathly-hallows-part-bd-dvd-chat-preview-85653/ Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: MTV is MTV. You guys aren't used to their stupidity by now??! BTW, several BRITISH talk show interviews with the HP cast while they were promoting DH 2 couldn't play outside of Britain this past summer. Just saying.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Who are MTV anyway? They seem to get the rights to a lot of HP stuff.Avatar ImagePotterUk says: coming from someone whos british i think its disgusting that people are insulting the American fans just because they get the DVD first, i understand that its a british film and Potter started with us but at the end of the day its very trivial, for once cant fans just be fans and not follow the 'star wars' route and attack each other constantly. Avatar ImagePotterUk says: But people gloating theyre getting it a month before anyone else arent really helping. lol. anyway to the actual clip, does anyone think that its going to be more daniel blabbing and Jo nodding her head through the whole thing. I dont really understand what hes saying.Avatar Imagemencia says: it's too bad i can't watch the clip, I really wanna listen to what they were saying :( uh well just gotta wait for it when it comes out I guessAvatar ImageWON_TWO says: Does anyone here remember when they made us wait an extra 6 months to watch a movie? The corporations who own this stuff are not concerned with what we like... just what we are willing to put up with, and shell out our money for!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Why can't anyone outside the US see it? Its not fair :(Avatar ImageLoony97 says: me too. I can't watch the clip. :( so sad I will travel to the US (or whatever) only to see this video!Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Nobody is insulting US fans, and we British fans are not saying that we should get the DVD first. We're just saying that we don't want to get it *last* (by 3 weeks)! And if the clip on Leaky is interesting, we would like to get a look at it, thank you very much!Avatar Imagemoglet says: All British fans who want to see this clip, pop over to mugglenet and see it there; http://www.mugglenet.com/homepage/1Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: cool!! :DAvatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: I think the one on Mugglenet is just an extract from a longer interview.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: ...or is that all that was on MTV too?Avatar Imagemoglet says: I think it's probably the same, as I also found it on Hypable and it says, 'This video now works internationally'Avatar Imagemolly43 says: @ PotterUk I thought it was just me, but I didn’t really u/s what he was saying either so I listened to it again. I got that he seemed to be saying that the HP characters represented life itself but after that I lost it with the “star wars costumes, etc.”. But still Daniel is adorable and at all other times has been understandable. I wish everyone could see the video. It’s a very short clip though. I’m in the US and I think the Dvd should be available to all at the same time. It doesn’t make sense not to be.
