ÖHarry PotterFilm series is oneBritish-north americanFilm series based onHarry Potternovels by British authorsJK Rowling. The series is distributed by Warner Bros. and initially consists of eight fantasy filmsHarry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone(2001) and culminates inHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2(2011). With worldwide sales of $7.7 billion, it is the highest-grossing film series of all time in unadjusted dollars. Each film is listed among the fifty highest-grossing films of all time, without adjustment for inflation, and is a critical success.
The series was produced by David Heyman and stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson as the three main characters Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. Four directors worked on the series: Chris Columbus, Alfonso Cuarón, Mike Newell and David Yates. Production spanned over ten years, with the main story arc following Harry Potter's quest to resolve his conflict with Lord Voldemort.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final novel in the series, has been adapted into a two-part feature film.Part 1was released in November 2010 andPart 2It was released in July 2011.
David Heyman has produced all eight films in the series since acquiring the film rights in 1999.
In late 1997, film producer David Heyman's London office received a copy of the first book in a seven-book series by Rowling.Harry PotterAffairs. The book,Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, was relegated to a low-priority shelf, where it was discovered by a secretary, who read it and gave it to Heyman with a positive review. As a result, Heyman, who originally disliked the "junk title," read the book himself. Impressed by Rowling's work, he began the process that would result in one of the highest-grossing film franchises of all time.
Heyman's enthusiasm prompted Rowling to sell the film rights to the first four films in 1999.Harry PotterBooks to Warner Bros. for a report£1 million ($2,000,000). A requirement Rowling made was that the main cast be kept strictly British, but this allowed for the inclusion of many Irish actors in the cast, such as Richard Harris as Dumbledore and the cast of French and Eastern European actors.Harry Potter and the Goblet of Firewhere the characters are identified as such in the book. Rowling was reluctant to sell the rights because she "didn't want to give them control over the rest of the story" by selling the rights to the characters, which would allow Warner Bros. to do sequences that weren't written by the author .
TrotzSteven Spielbergoriginally negotiated to direct the first film, he turned down the offer. Spielberg wanted the adaptation to be aAnimated film, with American actor Haley Joel Osment providing the voice of Harry Potter. Spielberg stated that in his opinion, in making the film, there was every expectation of profit and that making money would have been like "shooting ducks in a barrel". in." in their personal bank accounts. No challenge." In the Garbage section of her website, Rowling claims she had no role in selecting the film's directors, writing, "Anyone who thinks they could (or had) 'locked' him [Spielberg] needs their pen." After Spielberg Discussions began with other directors including: Chris Columbus, Terry Gilliam, Jonathan Demme, Mike Newell, Alan Parker, Wolfgang Petersen, Rob Reiner, Tim Robbins, Brad Silberling and Peter Weir. Petersen and Reiner dropped out of the race in March 2000. Then it came down to Silberling, Columbus, Parker and Gilliam. Rowling's first choice was Terry Gilliam. However, on March 28, 2000, Columbus was named to direct the film, with Warner Bros. continuing his work on other family films such asHome alonemiSra Doubt Fireas an influence on your decision.
|„||Harry PotterIt's the kind of timeless literary achievement that one experiences once in a lifetime. As the books have garnered a passionate following around the world, it was important to us to find a director who had an affinity for children and magic. I can't think of anyone better suited for this job than Chris [Columbus].||”|
– Lorenzo di Buenaventura, Warner Bros.
Steve Kloves was selected to write the screenplay for the first film. He described the book's adaptation as "difficult" as it "doesn't lend itself to adaptation as well as the next two books". Kloves received a "raft" of proposed book summaries as film adaptations, withHarry Potterbeing the only one who jumped on him. He went out and bought the book and immediately became a fan. Speaking to Warner Bros., he explained that the film had to be British and faithful to the characters. David Heyman has been confirmed as the film's producer. Rowling was given a great deal of creative control over the film, an arrangement Columbus did not mind.
Warner Bros. originally planned to release the first film over the weekend of July 4, 2001, creating such a short production window that several of the originally proposed directors dropped out of the race. Eventually, due to time constraints, the date was pushed back to November 16, 2001.

In 2000, lead actor Daniel Radcliffe was discovered after a seven-month search by producer David Heyman and writer Steve Kloves sitting directly behind them in a movie theater. In Heyman's own words:"There was a boy sitting behind me with these big blue eyes. It was Dan Radcliffe. I remember my first impressions: he was curious, funny and very energetic. He also had a lot of generosity and sweetness. But at the same time he was really gluttonous and hungry for knowledge of every kind".
Radcliffe had already established himself as an actor in 1999BBCTV production byDavid Copperfieldin which he played the lead role in the childhood years. Heyman convinced Radcliffe's parents to allow him to audition for the role of Harry Potter, which included filming Radcliffe. (This screen test footage was released in 2009 via the first series of Ultimate Editions.) Rowling was thrilled after seeing Radcliffe's test footage and said she didn't think there was a better cast for the role of Harry Potter.
Also in 2000, then-unknown British actors Emma Watson and Rupert Grint were chosen from thousands of children who auditioned for the roles of Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, respectively. Before being cast, her only previous acting experience was in school plays. Grint was eleven and Watson was ten when they were cast.
Los Angeles TimesAuthor Geoff Boucher, who conducted the aforementioned interview with Heyman, added that the cast of the three lead roles "it's particularly impressive in hindsight. Casting the trio was arguably one of the best showbiz decisions of the past decade...they displayed admirable grace and composure in the face of teenage fame."
Filming for the series began in September 2000 at Leavesden Studios, Hertfordshire, England and concluded in December 2010, with post-production on the final film continuing until the summer of 2011. Leavesden Studios was the main base for filming.Harry Potterand opened to the public as a studio tour in 2012 (renamed Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden).

David Heyman produced all the films in the series with his company Heyday Films, while David Barron served as executive producerChamber of SecretsmiGoblet of Fire. He was later named producer for the final three adaptations. Chris Columbus executive produced the first two films alongside Mark Radcliffe and Michael Barnathan, but became a producer on the third film alongside Heyman and Radcliffe. Additional executive producers are Tanya Seghatchian and Lionel Wigram. J.K. Rowling, writer of the series, was invited to produceGoblet of Fire, but declined. However, he accepted the role in both parts.deathly Hallows. Heyday Films and Columbus 1492 Pictures collaborated with Duncan Henderson Productions in 2001, Miracle Productions in 2002 and P of A Productions in 2004.Prisoner of Azkabanwas the last film produced by 1492 Pictures, Heyday Films continued the franchise and collaborated with Patalex IV Productions in 2005. The sixth film in the serieshalf-blood prince, was the most expensive film produced in 2009. Warner Bros. shared the seventh and final novel in the series,deathly Hallows, in two cinematic parts. The two parts were shot back-to-back from early 2009 to summer 2010, with reshoots ending on December 21, 2010; This marked the end of filmingHarry Potter. Heyman said thatdeathly HallowsIt was "shot like a movie" but released in two feature-length parts.
Tim Burke, the series' visual effects supervisor, said of the production inHarry Potter, “It was a big family; I think Leavesden employed over 700 people, an industry in itself." David Heyman said, "When the first film came out, I didn't think at all that we were going to do eight films. It didn't seem feasible until we did the fourth one." Nisha Parti, the consulting producer on the first film, said that Heyman "made the first film the way he thought the studio [Warner Bros.] wanted it to be made." . After the film's success, Heyman was given "more freedom."
One of the filmmakers' goals from the start of production was to develop the films' maturity. Chris Columbus said, "We knew these movies were going to get darker and darker. Again, we didn't knowas thedark, but we found that as the kids got older, movies tend to get a little fancier and darker." This happened with the next three directors who would work on the series over the next few years, and the movies started exploring themes like that dealing with death, betrayal, prejudice and political corruption as the series unfolds narratively and thematically.
After Chris Columbus finished the jobHarry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, was hired to direct the second film,Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Production began a week after the release of the first film. Columbus was set to direct all contributions to the series but did not want to return for the third film,Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, as he claimed it was "sold out". He moved to the producer position while Alfonso Cuarón was approached for the director position. I was initially nervous about directing the film as I hadn't read any of the books or seen the films. After reading the series, he changed his mind and committed to directing as he was immediately connected to the story.
David Yates directed most of the films in the series, including the two-part finale.deathly Hallows.
Because Cuarón decided not to direct the fourth part,Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, a new director had to be elected. Mike Newell was chosen to direct the film, but he declined to direct the next film.Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which was given to David Yates, who also directedHarry Potter and the Half-Blood PrincemiHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the only director since Chris Columbus to have directed more than one film.
Chris Columbus said his vision for the first two films was that of a "golden storybook, old world look", while Alfonso Cuarón changed the tone of the series, desaturating the color palette and adding Hogwarts to the landscape. Mike Newell decided to direct the fourth film as a "paranoid thriller," while David Yates wanted "to bring a sense of danger and character to the world." Cuarón, Newell and Yates said the challenge was finding a balance between producing the films according to their individual vision and working in a film world already established by Colón.
David Heyman commented on the "directors' generosity," revealing that "Chris spent time with Alfonso, Alfonso spent time with Mike, and Mike spent time with David, showing him a first cut of the film and talking about what it means to be a director and." how they did it [making the films]".
David Heyman also said, "I think Chris Columbus was the more conservative choice from a studio perspective. But he expressed real passion." Producer Tanya Seghatchian said they were "more adventurous" in choosing a director for the third film and reached out directly to Alfonso Cuarón. Mike Newell became the series' first British director when he was cast in the fourth film; Newell was scheduled to direct the first film before dropping out. David Yates directed the last few films after David Heyman found he was able to handle the offbeat, emotional and political material of the later novels.
All directors supported each other. Chris Columbus praised the character development in the films, while Alfonso Cuarón admired the "silent poetry" of David Yates' films. Mike Newell noted that each director has a different heroism, and David Yates views the first four films "with respect and liking for them." Daniel Radcliffe said Yates "took the charm of the films Chris has made and the visual flair of everything Alfonso has done and the bombastic, utterly British nature of the Mike Newell-directed film" and "made his own sense" added for realism.
Steve Kloves wrote the screenplays for all but the fifth film, which was written by Michael Goldenberg. Kloves had the direct support of J.K. Rowling, though she allowed him what he described as "tremendous latitude." Rowling once asked Kloves to stay true to the spirit of the books, so that the plot and tone of each film and corresponding book are basically the same, albeit with some changes and omissions due to film style, time and budget constraints. Michael Goldenberg also received information from Rowling during his adaptation of the fifth novel; Goldenberg was originally set to adapt the first novel before Kloves was cast in the studio.

David Heyman briefly explained the transition from book to film. Commenting on Rowling's involvement in the series, he explained that she understands that "books and films are different" and is "the best support" a producer could have. Rowling had general approval of the scripts, which were reviewed and discussed by the director and producers. Heyman also said that Kloves was the "key voice" in the process of adapting the novels and that certain aspects of the books had to be cut from the scripts because the filmmakers decided to focus on Harry's journey as a character. . , which would eventually give the films a defined structure. Heyman noted that some fans "don't necessarily understand the adaptation process" and that the filmmakers would like to have "everything" from the books in the films, but noted that this wasn't possible because they "didn't have the time or cinematic structure." . . to do that. He concluded by saying that adapting a novel to the screen is "a very thoughtful process".
Due to the fact that the films were shot while the novels were being published, the filmmakers had no idea of the story's ending until the release of the final novel in 2007. Kloves has spoken about his relationship with Rowling on the novel's adaptation, with Novels saying: "What stood out about Jo, which is remarkable for someone who had no filmmaking experience, was her insight. The first day I met her, we had a conversation in which she said, 'I know movies can't be the books... because I know what's coming and it's impossible to do it fully on screen dramatize what I'm about to write. But I'm just asking you to be true to the characters, that's all I care about. I don't know what made me say that [a Rowling], but I said, "You just have to know that my favorite character isn't Harry. My favorite character is Hermione." And I think, for some weird reason, by then, she trusted me."
cast and crew
Aside from the three leads, other notable cast members include Robbie Coltrane as Rubeus Hagrid, Alan Rickman as Severus Snape, Maggie Smith as Minerva McGonagall, and Tom Felton as Draco Malfoy. Richard Harris, who played the role of Professor Albus Dumbledore, died on October 25, 2002, leading to the role being recast for the third installment.Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. David Heyman and director Alfonso Cuarón chose Michael Gambon to play the character of Dumbledore, which he did in all subsequent films. Notable returning cast members include Helena Bonham Carter as Bellatrix Lestrange, Warwick Davis as Filius Flitwick, Ralph Fiennes as Lord Voldemort, Brendan Gleeson as Alastor Moody, Richard Griffiths as Vernon Dursley, Jason Isaacs as Lucius Malfoy, Gary Oldman as Sirius Black, and Fiona Shaw as Petunia Dursley, Timothy Spall as Peter Pettigrew, David Thewlis as Remus Lupin, Emma Thompson as Sybill Trelawney and Julie Walters as Molly Weasley.

The production designer for all eight films is Stuart Craig. Assisted by Stephanie McMillan, Craig created iconic locations including the Ministry of Magic, the Chamber of Secrets, the Malfoy Manor and the CGI design of the Horcrux Cave. Due to the fact that the novels were being released while the films were being made, Craig was forced to rearrange some settings for future films and change the layout of Hogwarts. He said, "In the early days, every time you saw Hogwarts from the outside it was a physical miniature" made by artisans, occupying a huge soundstage. "We ended up with a profile of what Hogwarts looked like, a skyline that I hadn't really drawn and wasn't always satisfactory, and as all the novels were being written and the films were being made, there were new requirements [for buildings]. The [Astronomy Tower] was definitely not there originally, so we were able to add this sizeable piece. And in the last film we needed an arena for the Battle of Hogwarts - the big outer courtyard had doubled and if you watch the first film it wasn't there. Some liberties were taken with the Hogwarts continuity. In the last film, Craig used a digital model instead of a miniature to "embrace the latest technology".
As for the method of creating the sets, Craig said he often started out by sketching ideas out on a blank sheet of paper. Stephanie McMillan also said that "every movie always had a lot of new challenges," citing as examples the changes in visual style between directors and cinematographers, and the development of the story in the novels. Based on J.K. Rowling's descriptions of various settings in the novels, Craig noted that her "responsibility was to put them together".
Commenting on his experience in a studio environment, Craig said, “I'm the production designer, but on a big film likeHarry PotterI can be responsible for 30 to 35 people; from the chief artistic director and a team of artistic directors and assistants, to young draftsmen and cartoonists and then modelers, sculptors and set designers.” He said, “Ten years have passed, everyoneHarry Potterthe drawings were made with a pencil. I took my sketches, plans and cuts and handed them over to a professional architectural illustrator, who created concept art using pencil and water on watercolor paper. He said the process had changed a bit over the years due to the so-called revolution of cinema.
When filming for the series wrapped, some of Craig's sets had to be rebuilt or transported to show on the Warner Bros. studio tour.
There were six different cinematographers in the franchise: John Seale worked on the first film; Roger Pratt Mondays and Wednesdays; Michael Seresin in third place; Sławomir Idziak in fifth place; Bruno Delbonnel in sixth; and Eduardo Serra in the seventh and eighth. Delbonnel was seen as a return to both parts of thedeathly Hallows, but he declined, stating he was "afraid of repeating himself". Delbonnel's cinematography inhalf-blood princewon the series is the only oneacademic awardNomination for Best Camera. Throughout the series, each cinematographer has been challenged to shoot and light older sets (which have been around since the early films) in unique and different ways. Chris Columbus said the series' vivid colors faded with each film, reflecting a more real world.
Michael Seresin commented on the visual style change compared to the first two filmsPrisoner of Azkaban: "The lighting is darker, with more shadows and crossed highlights." Leaving the intensely colored and illuminated cinematography of the first two films, Seresin and Alfonso Cuarón set the stage for the next five films, with progressively lower lighting and a softer color palette, featuring the work of Roger Pratt in the fourth film. Sławomir Idziak gave the fifth film a cold shade of blue, reflecting the desolation of the story, and after comparing various digital cameras with 35mm film, Bruno Delbonnel decided to make the sixth film.half-blood prince, on film instead of the increasingly popular digital format; this decision stood for both partiesdeathly Hallowswith Eduardo Serra, who said he preferred to work with film because it was "more technically precise and reliable".
because mostdeathly HallowsSet in various locations outside of Hogwarts, David Yates wanted to "shake things up" through the use of different photographic techniques, such as the use of handheld cameras and very wide camera lenses. Eduardo Serra said: “Sometimes we combine elements taken from the main unit, a second unit and the visual effects unit. You have to know with mathematical precision what's going to be captured (colors, contrast, etc.).” He noted that Stuart Craig's “incredible sets and story” didn't allow the filmmakers to “deviate too much from the look of the previous film.”Harry PotterFilm".
Along with the constant rotation of cinematographers, five film editors worked on the post-production of the series: Richard Francis-Bruce edited the first part; Peter Honess was second; Steven Weisberg edited the third, Mick Audsley the fourth; and Mark Day edited films five through eight.
John Williams composed the music for the first three films and received Oscar nominations for the first and third films.
ÖHarry PotterThe series had four composers. John Williams was the first composer to be included in the series and is known for his creationsSubject of eduvigis, which can be heard at the beginning of each film. Williams composed the music for the first three films:Philosopher's Stone,Chamber of Secrets, miPrisoner of Azkaban. However, the second entry was adapted and performed by William Ross due to conflicting commitments from Williams.
After Williams left the series to pursue other projects, Patrick Doyle scored the fourth inning.Goblet of Fire, directed by Mike Newell, with whom Doyle had previously worked. In 2006, Nicholas Hooper began work on the soundtrack forOrder of the Phoenixwhile reuniting with the director's old friend David Yates. Hooper also composed the soundtrack forhalf-blood princehowever, chose not to return for the final films.
In January 2010, Alexandre Desplat was confirmed to compose the soundtrack forHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1. The film's orchestration began in the summer with Conrad Pope, the orchestrator of the first threeHarry PotterMovies, in collaboration with Desplat. Pope commented that the song "reminds you of the old days". Desplat scored againHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2in 2011.
Director David Yates stated that he wanted John Williams to return to the series for the final chapter, but their schedules did not match as there was an urgent demand for a preliminary version of the film as soon as possible. The last recording sessions ofHarry Pottertook place on 27 May 2011 at Abbey Road Studios with the London Symphony Orchestra, orchestrator Conrad Pope and composer Alexandre Desplat.
Doyle, Hooper, and Desplat introduced their own personal themes into their respective soundtracks, while retaining some of John Williams' themes.
Many visual effects companies have worked on itHarry PotterSeries. Some of these are Rising Sun Pictures, Double Negative, Cinesite, Framestore and Industrial Light & Magic. The last three worked on all films in the series, while Double Negative and Rising Sun Pictures began their commitmentsPrisoner of AzkabanmiGoblet of Fireand Framestore contributed by developing many memorable creatures and sequences for the series. Cinesite helped produce miniature and digital effects for the films. Producer David Barron said: "Harry Pottercreated the British effects industry as we know it. In the first film, all of the intricate visual effects were done on the west coast. But in the second case we have taken a leap of faith and passed on to UK providers much of what would normally be given to Californian providers. They came as a bonus.” Visual effects supervisor Tim Burke said many studios “take their work to UK effects companies. All facilities are full and this was not the case beforeHarry Potter. That's really significant."
On June 12, 2010, the shooting of theDeathly Hallows - Part 1miDeathly Hallows - Part 2It ended with actor Warwick Davis declaring on his Twitter account: "The end of an era, today is officially the last day of Harry Potter principal photography ever.
