No one puts Professor McGonagall in the corner. Or, at least, J.K. Rowling doesn't. "Harry Potter" fans know about the epic showdown between Snape and McGonagall that results in good prevailing over evil, a bunch of happily clapping Hogwarts kids and McGonagall being generally accepted as a totally badass teacher.

In a previous draft of the movie script, Snape was going to battle Harry instead, but J.K. Rowling didn't approve. She wanted the women to have a fair share of fighting, too, and she explains that in this interview with MTV. Bonnie Wright, who plays Ginny in the "Potter" films, also gives her two cents about how awesome Minerva McGonagall's fight scene with Snape is.

Check out the sneak peak of the featurette -- available on the "Deathly Hallows Part 2" Blu-ray and DVD, in stores Nov. 11 --  at MTV.
