2. Warner Bros. Hosts Harry Potter Luncheon in NYC with Dan Radcliffe, Alan Rickman Present

The Hollywood Reporter was present on Monday when Warner Bros. hosted a luncheon to celebrate the Harry Potter franchise at Club 21 in New York City. In attendance at the luncheon were Daniel Radcliffe, Alan Rickman, director David Yates and producer David Heyman.

Video of Yates and Heyman making remarks about the Harry Potter series during the luncheon can be seen below:



THR also spoke to Radcliffe prior to the luncheon where he talked about his feelings now that Potter is behind him and the adjustment to life in the public eye. Audio of the interview along with a full transcript is available here.

What are your feelings now that it has all wound down?
Daniel Radcliffe: Well, you know, I think my feelings are that the series is, kind of, its own commemoration -- I mean, to me at least. I won't be able to look at any of these films without remembering what they did for the British film industry at a time when it wasn't doing great -- it's now flourishing, but in the early half of the decade, you know, there was nothing happening, and films were closing, and Potter was the only, kind of, sure-thing happening in England. And, you know, my memories of it are incredibly nostalgic, and romantic, and, I think, how everybody views their teenage years, you know: with complete idealism, having forgotten that there was ever any, you know, hormonal rage or any of that kind of stuff. You know, I had a moment the other day of actually really missing it for the first time since, of going, "God, I miss those people!" But, yeah, I mean, it's been over a year now, and I've been having this amazing year here, so it's been a great first year away -- may they all be this good!

3. First Look: "Deathly Hallows: Part 2" Blu-ray DVD Special Features Report, Dan Radcliffe and J. K. Rowling Interview, the Women of "Potter" With New Details

Leaky has gotten an early copy of the forthcoming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" Blu-ray DVD for review and has a chance to look over many of its special features included in this edition.  We will be highlighting different aspects of the DVD's special features and give a full review of the complete Blu-ray edition soon.  Firstly, readers will recall various clips making their way online of an interview between Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling and Harry Potter actor Dan Radcliffe about their experiences in the world of Harry Potter.  In the much of the full interview, Mr. Radcliffe speaks to Jo about her impressions over the past ten years as she gave over her work to the filmmakers and how the process has been for her.

From the start, Jo recalls, she found the young actors to be ideal for their respective roles as the Trio.  In one moment, she shares about the first time she saw Dan as Harry:

"The first time I ever saw you was on the screen in my sitting room at home. They sent me a video of you... So, I saw you on that audition tape and I don't think I ever really told you, that I found you incredibly moving.  At that point, I didn't have a son, and I phoned David [Heyman] up and said he's great, he's fantastic... and I did say to David that it was like watching my son on screen.  Because, after all, Harry feels like this ghostly son I've had in my life."
Ms. Rowling goes on to speak to her characters and the actors who played them by describing them all as "far too pretty," but growing to understand that they actors were right for their roles once she met them.  She explains:
"It was a quite a big deal for me that I had written a strong female character who was primarily about brains, and that she chose to become a little bit more glamorous (in "Goblet of Fire") as us geeks do in a certain point in our lives. (laughs)  I accepted it.  Emma is a great access and I loved her as a person.  I felt that there were so many connections between her and Hermione that, did it matter that she was beautiful [from the start]? Come on."
Later in the conversation, the pair turns to discussing some of the creative turns the film made and Jo's reaction to a those alterations.  She says, "Inevitability you had to depart from the strict storyline of the books... the books are simply too long to make into very faithful films.  I can think of many places where it has worked just beautifully."  On the subject of changes she requested, Jo recalls one instance with "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" director Alfonso Cuaron in which she halted a creative effect from one scene.  Quoteage:
"Alfonso really wanted to get music into the film, and he put the choir in, which I loved.  But at one point he had this rather bizarre scene where Flitwick was conducting, and there were miniature people in an orchestra inside of something.  I said to him, 'But, why?'  I know it's visually exciting, but I think what was part of what fans really enjoy about the literacy world was that there was a logic that underpinned it.  There was always a logic to the magic, however strange it became.  And I know it's intriguing to people to go through the mouth of whatever it was and to see these little people, but why have they done it? …. Normally with the magic, there is a point.  So we had a little discussion about that.
The them of logic in the world of Harry Potter continues as a theme from this interview and it picked up again when the actor and author discuss the school setting of Hogwarts and reasons behind Jo's decision to have Hogwarts be a boarding school.  
"I certainly wasn't pro-boarding school... it was simply logistics.  There is a logic underpinning the world, and if you are a part of a society that is living in secret and you want to gather together a large number of your children and teach

4. More on Fates of Hagrid and Lupin from J. K. Rowling "Deathly Hallows: Part 2" DVD Interview

As a followup to today's earlier post, more information from author J. K. Rowling about the fates of characters from special material included on the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" DVD has been released care of MTV.  This new information comes from a report on EW which details more from a conversation the Harry Potter author had with actor Dan Radcliffe for the DVD.  Here, Ms. Rowling explains how she came to the decision of the fates of Hagrid and Lupin and how her thoughts on the characters were altered as she wrote the books.  Quoteage:

Rowling tells Radcliffe that the image of Hagrid cradling "dead" Harry — a bookend to the beginning of the series, when Hagrid brought infant Harry to the Dursleys – stuck with her the entire time she wrote the books and she never let it go. If she had, Rowling says Hagrid would have been a “natural” target for elimination. "That image kept him safe," she says.
Rowling also reveals that in her original "sketch" (her word) of the series climax, one of the most beloved characters in the Potter canon survived: Remus Lupin — tragic werewolf, former Defense Against The Dark Arts professor, and husband to the metamorphmagus and auror, Nymphadora Tonks... The seventh book tells us that before their deaths during the Battle of Hogwarts, Lupin and Tonks had a child. On the DVD, Rowling shares with Radcliffe that when she created Lupin’s character, she planned for him to survive the finale. While the author has said as much in other interviews, here, she elaborates, explaining that she changed her mind when she realized that her last Harry Potter story was really about war, and that “one of the most horrifying things about war is how it leaves children fatherless and motherless.” The most powerful way she could dramatize that idea, she says, was to kill a set of parents that were dear to readers. “I had no intention of killing [Lupin],” says Rowling. “But then it dawned on me he had to die."
The full interview is set to be included as part of the special features on the Blu-ray edition of the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," scheduled for release on November 11 in the US and December 2nd in the UK.
