‘Harry Potter’ Director Chris Columbus Is ‘glad’ He Didn’t Direct The Last Two Films
The Harry Potter film series has created the ‘Potterhead’ population of the world and been a franchise of its own for over a decade now. The film series was an adaptation of JK Rowling’s Harry Potter novels and was directed by four different directors. Recently in an interview with Cinema Blend, Chris Columbus who helmed the first two parts of the film spoke about directing the seventh and eighth parts, The Deathly Hallows I and II.
The Harry Potter film franchise was directed by four directors namely Chris Columbus, Alfonso Cuarón, Mike Newell, and David Yates. Chris kickstarted the Harry Potter movies by directing the first and the second part: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets. He had denied to direct the third film and joined the production team. Recently he mentioned that he wanted to direct the last two The Deathly Hallows film but things didn’t turn out the way he wanted to.
He added that he is glad that David Yates directed the film and he did not get the chance to do it. He told Cinema Blend that David decided to stay and direct the last two parts after he directed the fifth and sixth parts. He pleasantly said that he loved the Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part II
David Yates’s work in The Deadly Hallows was critically acclaimed by the fans and the audience. The first parts of the movie and the last parts were related but different. Where the first two parts were an introduction to the magical world, Hogwarts, Horcruxes, and the bond between the iconic Harry Potter trio, the last part was a battle between the good and bad sides of the magical world, between Hogwarts and Voldemort. The audience had loved the conclusion of the film focusing the Harry, Hermoine, and Ron.
