David Heyman on Battle of Hogwarts, tone of the films David Heyman on Battle of Hogwarts, tone of the films

David HeymanThe climactic “Battle of Hogwarts” in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II will be around thirty-minutes long, according to a new interview with David Heyman. Also in the interview, Heyman notes that part I will be, “a road movie”, while part II, “more operatic with the huge, great battle for Hogwarts”.

The ending of part 2 is one of the last things they’re going to shoot. David also says he expects the ending battle to be around 30 minutes in the movie. He says the gang gets to Hogwarts early on and then they’re a lot of build up to the battle.

Also noteworthy, Heyman mentions that both films will be around two-and-a-half-hours in length. You can read the full interview at this link.

Nighy talks ‘Hallows’; starts filming very soon Nighy talks ‘Hallows’; starts filming very soon

090716 nighyBill Nighy, who will play Rufus Scrimgeour in both parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, is the subject of a new interview with SCI FI Wire. In the interview, Nighy says that he will begin filming DH once he returns from promoting his new movie G-Force in New York.

“I go home and I shoot, and I am Rufus Scrimgeour. I am a wizard. I am the Minister for Magic, and I am very pleased, because I thought I was going to remain the only English actor who wasn’t in Harry Potter, but apparently that’s not true.”

And what’s Nighy most looking forward to filming once he returns?

“Well, there’s one where he comes and delivers Dumbledore’s [Michael Gambon] legacy to the three children,” Nighy replied, referring to Harry, Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint, with whom Nighy worked on the upcoming action-comedy Wild Target). “He gives them all of the things that Dumbledore has left them, and that’s when it’s first indicated that he may not be around for much longer. So it’s quite an affecting scene.”
