Director of Harry Potter 1 wants a three hour version

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone, Chris Columbus, director of this tape, he has asked Warner Bros. Launching his original version of three hours. Although at the moment there is no response, considering the history of the company with this type of product, there is nothing safe at the moment.

In an interview with The Wrap, Columbus revealed that his first version of Harry Potter and the philosopher s stone had a duration of three hours, and had the appearance of peeves, played by Risk May all, a ghost that only has a presence in the books. This was what the Director commented on:

We knew that the movie worked because we made a couple of progress. In particular, an advance of Chicago where our first cut was three hours. The parents said after it was too long, the children said it was too short. I thought, well, children presumably have a shorter attention capacity, so this is a good thing.

We have to put Peeves again in the movie, which was eliminated from the movie!

However, at the moment it seems that this will not be the case. Warner Bros. and HBO Max are already planned to prevail a special that will bring together Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Print, and Emma Watson, as well as a question contest. Similarly, considering the history of this company with extended versions of your films, Columbus s desire is likely to come true.

Editor s note:

While the idea of ​​seeing a three-hour version of HARRY POTTER and the philosopher s stone, it sounds interesting, the original tape is already long enough, and it does cover the most important points of the first book. Having 30 minutes more than one ghost making jokes is not fundamental.
