Each chief had their very own vision of the arrangement however recognized that they ought to get darker as time passed by. Columbus needed to depict a “brilliant storybook” picture. Cuarón changed the visual tone and extended Hogwarts. Newell needed a “distrustful spine chiller” and Yates a feeling of “danger and character to the world”.
They cooperated, with the last chief sitting with the following one and talking through what they had done, and where the two of them needed it to go. Each executive needed a feeling of equalization that coordinated the world Columbus began, and the others had developed.
Kloves and Goldenberg had direct assistance from J.K. Rowling, despite the fact that she gave them incredible space to have their very own thoughts. Rowling needed them to remain consistent with the books, and put something aside for a couple of changes, the plot and tone of each film continued as before as the books. Heyman said Rowling was the “best help” and that she saw a few things must be changed.
