Newell provided vitality and humour to the darker comingofage theme portrayed in Goblet of Fire, while Chris Columbus, the director of the previous two Harry Potter films, helped establish a pleasant family vibe on site.In “Chapter 2: Coming of Age,” the cast members explore the new attitude on set while filming Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire with Mike Newell.

Bonnie Wright, who plays Ginny Weasley, characterises Newell as “a firecracker of energy” with an appealing childlike quality. Newell’s fondness of humour and his attempt to incorporate laughter into each new scene is also mentioned by Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley. Newell’s frenetic and colourful directing approach is arguably best exemplified during the filming of Fred and George Weasley’s fight sequence in the Great Hall during the behind-the-scenes look at the making of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

The actors who played Fred and George Weasley, James and Oliver Phelps, talk about the scene in which the Weasley twins try to put their names in the Goblet of Fire and enter the Triwizard Tournament despite being underage. To get over the magical age limit that Dumbledore drew around the Goblet of Firea charm that would prevent any pupils under the age of 17 from competing Fred and George use an ageing potion to go around the regulations.

Dumbledore’s charm, as predicted by Hermione Granger (Emma Watson), causes the potion to backfire, turning the twins into elderly men. Newell, according to James and Oliver, wanted them to put more effort into the action and decided to demonstrate this by fighting with one of the actors.Newell encouraged James and his brother Oliver to be genuinely irritated with one other and fight for real. “These two were having a bit of a tussle over it.

And I told them, ‘No, come on boys, it’s a battle,'” Newell adds. When Newell challenged James to a fight, the director’s attempt to make the scene more authentic swiftly got dangerous. “Of course, at the time, I was a tubby 60-year-old gentleman.” And it was something I really shouldn’t have done,” Newell admits. “I remember grabbing him about the waist and trying to fling him around and cracking a couple of ribs, and I was in excruciating pain for the rest of the night.

But, of course, the best part was that I’d made a complete fool of myself, and everyone felt a lot better as a result.” While Newell’s way of getting involved in the event was unorthodox, his demonstration added a layer of humour to a classic Harry Potter sequence.Newell’s account of his injury in the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts special further demonstrated his dedication to the film.
