Video excerpt: ‘The Women of Harry Potter’
Today, we have another clip from the soon-to-be-released Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 Blu-ray/DVD Special Features section. This time the clip comes from ‘The Women of Harry Potter.’
In this clip J.K. Rowling and Bonnie Wright discuss the power of Professor McGonagall.
Bonnie states: “The teachers have been so repressed in how they see Hogwarts, obviously from its new ruling, that you can see that they’re just itching for their fight back against evil. And I love Professor McGonagall, it just completely shows what she’s made of.”
On the battle between Snape and McGonagall, J.K. Rowling stated: “I don’t like the marginalization of women when the fighting breaks out. We get to fight too. I really wanted that. In fact, there was an earlier draft…I know there was at one point, it was Harry who took on Snape in that confrontation, and I really didn’t want that to happen.”
