In a new interview discussing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,┬áproducer David Heyman commented on the cinematic translation of some of Deathly Hallows’ juiciest moments.

Be aware that the following quotes contain numerous spoilers regarding Snape’s role, the battle of Hogwarts, the epilogue and more, so read on as you desire.

In the footage we saw today, there’s a scene of Snape and McGonagall facing off in the Great Hall, which I don’t remember happening at all in the book.
They do face off, but it’s not in the Great Hall. There are a lot of things there that are slightly different from the book, but they are true to the spirit to the book. Snape and McGonagall do face off in the book, but it’s in a corridor as Harry’s on his way to the Ravenclaw common room.

So the Pensieve moment stays in too?
Yes, that and Dumbledore [at King’s Cross].

Is the mewling creature on the floor at King’s Cross still in there?
Yes, that’s in there.

How did the actors go into the scene, growing into themselves 15 years later?
They look good. It’s subtle. It’s going to be very interesting to see the response, since inevitably we know it’s Dan, Rupert and Emma, and we’ve just seen them as 17-year-olds. Initially we went a little further [with the effects], and then we pulled it back. Sometimes if you try too hard you’re really aware of the work. You won’t have huge wrinkles, obviously there’s a difference, but you still resemble yourself.
