David Heyman calls ‘Deathly Hallows: Part 2’ rough cut “very exciting”, talks King’s Cross and Prince’s Tales

David Heyman recently called a rough cut of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, “very exciting”, despite it having no visual effects, music, or sounds effects.

Talking with Empire Online, Heyman spoke about the ‘Potter’ franchise coming to an end, as well as some of the juicer material to come in Part 2, including the King’s Cross sequence and Snape’s memories.

Yeah. I’ve seen a very, very early cut. It’s very exciting. No visual effects, no music, no sound effects, and it’s really exciting. But it’s early days and the film continues to take shape and will continue to take shape over the next many months. I think it will be a great ending to the series. It was a really long shoot; we shot over 260 days on this one.

Well, in a way this is an easier structure than Part One because it’s quite defined. In terms of the King’s Cross scene, I think it does work and it’s very moving. We actually did it once, and then re-did it a little bit because we needed to refine something, and I’m pretty glad we did. It’s a very quiet, moving scene, but I think it leaves the series on the right note. The only flashback really that one thinks about is the Snape flashback, when Harry goes into the Pensieve to see Snape’s story, and that’ll be defined, but it’ll be very moving.
