"We just dressed the kids like teenagers; we made them a lot more urban. Instead of taking my inspiration from Dicken’s A Christmas Carol, I took my inspiration from the street. You don’t have to dress up everybody in nineteenth century–like costumes to have a wizard film. I think wizards exist nowadays as well. They have their own culture, as they belong to a different world. They don’t all have to be rich and in velvet. They can be dark and in jeans. That’s what we wanted to show.” – Jany Temime
"Luna had decorated her bedroom ceiling with five beautifully painted faces: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville. They were not moving as the portraits at Hogwarts moved, but there was a certain magic about them all the same; Harry thought they breathed. What appeared to be fine golden chains wove around the pictures, linking them together, but after examining them for a minute or so, Harry realized that the chains were actually one word, repeated a thousand times in golden ink: friends…friends…friends…friends… Harry felt a great rush of affection for Luna" — Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
“Dark times lie ahead of us and there will be a time when we must choose between what is easy and what is right.”
Ron and Hermione have this combative but mutual attraction. They will always bicker, there will always be rough edges there, but they are pulled together, each has something the other needs.” - J.K. Rowling.
