Now that filmgoers have finally had the opportunity to feast their eyes on “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1,” it’s time for the inevitable overanalyzing of what didn’t make the cut — specifically for the “Potter” fanatics, which pages in the book didn’t make the film version.
When MTV News caught up with director David Yates, we asked him what cuts were particularly hard for him to make and which of those will end up on the DVD extras.
”There are a couple of things that we’ve lost that just didn’t quite survive,” he said. “I did this wonderful scene between Hermione and Ron. I wanted to explore their relationship a little bit more, so when Ron leaves it really breaks your heart.
”There was a scene we shot up in Scotland; it’s a scene where Ron is showing Hermione how to throw a stone on a lake, how to spin a stone on the lake, and Hermione is being really girly about it. She’s got a really rubbish throw, and she has to insist that Ron show her how to spin the stone to sort of entice tactility and physical contact, and it’s a really funny, tender and moving scene,” Yates described. “They’re both very funny in it, but it ended up on the DVD because the overall tone of our film, as you know, is quite intense.”
Yates went on to say that he had the scene in the film, but it just didn’t quite fit. “We tried to keep as much of the stuff we felt was important as possible,” he said.
Luckily for fans wanting to see that scene, they can look for it on the DVD.
”The DVD extras, I would guess there is about 10 or 12 or 15 extra minutes,” Yates revealed.
