MuggleNet Exclusive interview: Director of the fandom made film ‘Battle of Hogwarts’
Battle of Hogwarts is a video that depicts the final battle at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from the viewpoint of students (outside of the main characters from the Harry Potter series) and adult witches and wizards as they battle the Death Eaters.
“It’s focusing on different characters. I kind of think – well, we want to kind of put our own spin onto things, so we don’t want to copy the Harry Potter films identical. We want to have our own kind of interpretation into it. But I think if you want to slot it somewhere into Deathly Hallows: Part 2, I would say when the point Harry dies – well, think he dies – and then that whole long process, they carry his body up to the castle and by then it’s in the early hours of the morning. So that happens elsewhere in the castle because it’s such a huge place. There would be numerous battles and other things going on elsewhere.”
A screening of the film will be shown during Ascendio 2012 on Saturday July 14, at 7:00 p.m. in the Venetian IV room. The film, according to Oliver, will be released in a few weeks.
