Book Week: 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' Gets a Major Book-to-Movie Change
Brace yourself, Muggles. 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' as you know it will reportedly be very different in Part 2 of the movie version. Those who don't want to hear about the spoiler, should not read on.
We mean it -- this is a major spoiler alert. If you don't want your movie-watching experience to be affected, do not click 'read more.' If you don't want to know how the movie will differ from the book, we totally understand.
Okay, now that our disclaimer is out of the way, here's the deal. At the end of the J.K. Rowling book, Severus Snape is killed at the Shrieking Shack by Voldemort's snake, Nagini. However, in the movie, the death will take place in a different location and have a more "dramatic" tone.
In an interview with Cine Premiere Mexico, 'HP7' art director Andrew Ackland-Snow says that Snape will meet his fate at the Hogwart's Boathouse instead of the Shack. Andrew also says that the house will be made of crystal, adding that it's a "very romantic place to die." The change was reportedly approved by J.K. Rowling, as well.
But what do you think about the change? As a reader, do you want movies to be the same as the original books? Or do you understand why changes are made for the big screen? Let us know how you feel in the comments. %Poll-58876%
