Daniel Radcliffe Talks to Total Film About “Deathly Hallows” Split

The upcoming issue of Total Film magazine will include a special commemorative feature on the Harry Potter universe in preparation for the “Deathly Hallows: Part 2″ release this summer.

A preview from their interview with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) is now online in which he goes into greater detail about the decision to split the film:

“If you come to me with a satisfactory adaptation of the seventh book into one film, then we can have this debate! All the books from the Goblet of Fire onwards were big, but with every one, you could cut swathes out without detracting from the main story.”

On why this one’s different, Radcliffe explained: “In the Deathly Hallows there are no subplots. It’s all the same story and it’s hard to lose a page.”

The latest issue of Total Film goes on sale Thursday, May 12th.

Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: Oh cool! Great article!Avatar Imagedevilskinn says: I just love everything that is related, even remotely, to Harry Potter. I just got goose-bumps again while reading this article with Daniel, because he is actually right: Deathly Hollows is so very concentrated... Adore them all, though :)Avatar ImageMariaKeis says: Bless_the_children's coment rules .. Hahaha .. Cracked me up xD But yeah .. ACCIO PART 2Avatar Imagejhangelgurl says: Hopefully the post the whole article here once it comes out. Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: Awesome.Avatar ImageFresca says: I agree. Not splitting Deathly Hallows would have gutted the story line. I love the complicated characters and the plot lines when reading a book, but in a movie it is hard to have various plot lines threading through it. It can be done, but it is difficult. I have mixed emotions about the last part of DH. It does signify the end of reading a wonderful series of books, but the last movie will be SO exciting!Avatar ImageViccy6 says: I don`t think the sell Total Film in Nprway, I have never heard of it... Gosh I really hope the post it on Leaky too! If that`s legal?Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: Love that saying! "ACCIO PART 2!!!"Avatar Imagevector_theta says: I think it is horrible that TOTAL FILM magazine steals a line reserved for the LORD's Prayer in the Holy Bible!
