British actor Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry Potter, explains, “In Harry Potter 7 (Deathly Hallows Part 1) … people keep talking about ‘Oh it’s an action movie’ (but) … this 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,” the 21-year-old told Reuters.
“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.”
Rupert Grint, who plays Harry’s best friend Ron, has said:
“Some of the scenes where you’ve got all the hospital beds and piles of bodies everywhere — it’s really a whole new level for a Harry Potter film. It’s going to be epic.”
Hollywood studio Warner Bros. decided to divide the seventh Harry Potter book into two films.
The main actor, Daniel Radcliffe, said this split gave him time to explore his character.
“If we had done this book in one film, the stuff that would have got cut is most of this film,” said Radcliffe.
“For me that is the most interesting part of the story, because it’s where the characters develop and change. ”
“My pitch (for Parts 1 and 2) was that it’s a road movie that turns into a heist movie that turns into a war film.”
