Every Harry Potter fan knows that there's a difference between the books and the movies. So which crucial scenes made the cut in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and which ones just got cut? IO9 spoke with the directors David Yates and Steve Kloves regarding never before seen footage!
The good news is that when you buy the DVD, you'll be able to watch the scenes that got cut, edited, and filmed but never aired:
"There's a version of Aberforth and Harry — a longer version of it that we got. There's an extended scene on the beach with Ron disguised (before he gets to the bank, there's a lovely little interchange with him and Bellatrix Lestrange.) There are a number of things that we have for the DVD."
Much of the Great Hall battle scene was edited and worked over several times. The controversial scene in which Harry pulls Voldemort over Hogwarts was never in the books:
"[David Yates] came up with this notion of Harry just looking at Voldemort while they're on this precipice, and pulling him over. That was my eureka moment in the garden while I was having a cup of tea. And I thought that could be really beautiful, these two figures just tumbling into the abyss and then conjoining in this weird way. If would be quite haunting and expressive."
