Emma Watson: There’s something about Part 1 that’s quite ominous and quite haunting and scary.
David Yates: Part 1 was what I always felt was the intimate half of our concluding film. And Part 2 is much more operatic and epic.
David Barron: These films are the final conclusion. The battle for Hogwarts. The battle between good and evil.
Dan Radcliffe: In Part 1 the Ministry has fallen under control of Voldemort and the Death Eaters. Harry is sort of the holy grail for Voldemort and so they have to get him out as fast as humanly possible.
Emma Watson: Voldemort has split his soul into seven pieces to make him immortal. He has hidden these seven pieces of his soul in different objects. Harry, Hermione and Ron have to find the horcruxes and destroy them, one by one. It’s quite a daunting task. Trying to do all of this without anyone recognizing them, because Harry’s obviously the most wanted man.
David Heyman: Harry, Ron and Hermione are on the run.
Rupert Grint: Without the safety of Hogwarts, we could get attacked at any moment and nowhere is safe.
Daniel Radcliffe: Like any good thriller, it’s twists and turns and intrigue.
Emma Watson: Dumbledore leaves Hermione a children’s book, which is sort of puzzling. It only comes to have real meaning at the end of Part 1 when she sees a symbol that she doesn’t really recognize – the Deathly Hallows..
Daniel Radcliffe: They go to the only person they know who has any contact with it, Xenophelius Lovegood, when he explains that it’s part of wizard mythology.
Daniel Radcliffe: We end up in the middle of a fire fight.
Rupert Grint: We get captured and taken to Malfoy Manor.
Daniel Radcliffe: Dobby helps us to escape.
David Heyman: He’s really quite devastated, but he feels more than ever the need to challenge and to defeat the Dark Lord.
David Yates: You see in Harry’s eyes that he can’t stop. He has to see it through.
David Barron: He’s the only person left who can successfully carry out that job.
Daniel Radcliffe: It’s coming to an end now. Something’s got to give.
