Why Harry Potter's Quidditch Scenes Were So Difficult for Director

为什么《哈利波特》的魁地奇场景对导演来说如此困难

 

As the first director to bring Harry Potter to the big screen, Chris Columbus found the Quidditch scenes presented several unique challenges.

作为第一个将《哈利·波特》搬上大银幕的导演,克里斯·哥伦布发现魁地奇的场景带来了几个独特的挑战。

 

Original Harry Potter director Chris Columbus explains why the Quidditch scenes proved to be incredibly difficult for the first film. This month marks the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, the first movie in what would become one of the biggest film franchises of all time. Columbus, previously best known for helming movies like Home Alone and Mrs. Doubtfire, was the first director to try his hand at bringing the Wizarding World to the big screen; he would then return for the second movie, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, before moving into a producer position for the third.

《哈利·波特》的原导演克里斯·哥伦布解释了为什么魁地奇的场景在第一部电影中被证明是非常困难的。本月是《哈利·波特与魔法石》上映20周年,这部电影后来成为有史以来最大的系列电影之一。哥伦布之前以执导《小鬼当家》和《窈窕奶爸》等电影而闻名,他是第一个将魔法世界搬上大银幕的导演;之后他将回归拍摄第二部《哈利·波特与密室》,然后担任第三部的制片人。

 

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is often regarded as one of the best book-to-movie adaptations, notable for its ability to transform a children's book into something that audiences of all ages could enjoy. A then-unknown Daniel Radcliffe stepped into the leading role of boy wizard Harry Potter, while his best friends Ron and Hermione were played by Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, respectively. Harry Potter was further bolstered by an impressive cast of British talent comprised of those like Richard Harris, Maggie Smith and Alan Rickman.

《哈利·波特与魔法石》通常被认为是由书改编成电影的最佳作品之一,它以将儿童读物转变为老少皆宜的读物而闻名。当时还不知名的丹尼尔·雷德克里夫饰演了小巫师哈利·波特的主角,而他最好的朋友罗恩和赫敏则分别由鲁伯特·格林特和艾玛·沃特森饰演。理查德·哈里斯、玛吉·史密斯和艾伦·瑞克曼等英国演员阵容也为《哈利·波特》增添了不少人气。

 

Adapting a beloved book into a movie comes with plenty of challenges, but certain elements proved to be even more difficult for Columbus. For example, bringing the wizarding sport of Quidditch to life befuddled Columbus at first because he only understood "about 75%" of the rules. Speaking to Insider in a new interview, the director explained he didn't want audiences to feel confused by the sport. "We had to basically sit down with Jo Rowling and go through the rules of Quidditch," he said. "And she walked us through the exact rules." From there, Columbus filled a notebook with the rules, point system, and how the pitch should be designed. He added:

将一本深受喜爱的书改编成电影充满了挑战,但某些元素对哥伦布来说更加困难。举个例子,把魁地奇这项魔法运动带到了哥伦布的生活中,一开始他很困惑,因为他只懂“大约75%”的规则。在接受内幕网采访时,这位导演解释说,他不想让观众对这项运动感到困惑。“我们基本上是坐下来和乔·罗琳一起讨论魁地奇规则,”他说。“她给我们讲了确切的规则。”从那以后,哥伦布在笔记本上写下了规则、积分系统以及如何设计球场。他补充说:

 

"It was basically coming up with a new sport. Obviously, the visual effects in that particular film are challenging in that sequence because none of it exists in reality."

“基本上就是发明一种新的运动。显然,那部电影的视觉效果在那个序列中是很有挑战性的,因为在现实中这些都不存在。”

 

Quidditch plays a vital part in almost every Harry Potter movie. As the first director in the series, Columbus must've known his stylistic decisions would inform many of the following movies, so it was important that he get all the details right. In the Harry Potter books, there are countless rules and quirks to Quidditch spread throughout the story; there's even a companion textbook titled Quidditch Through the Ages that fans could purchase and read for themselves. With all that in mind, it's no surprise it would prove itself to be a tricky element.

几乎在每一部《哈利·波特》电影中,魁地奇都扮演着重要的角色。作为这个系列的第一个导演,哥伦布一定知道他的风格决定会影响到接下来的许多电影,所以他很重要的是让所有的细节都是正确的。在《哈利·波特》系列丛书中,魁地奇比赛有无数的规则和怪癖贯穿整个故事;甚至还有一本名为《魁地奇穿越时代》的配套教科书,粉丝们可以自己购买并阅读。考虑到所有这些,它将证明自己是一个棘手的元素也就不足为奇了。

 

Luckily, Columbus understood the importance of getting Quidditch right, and he put a lot of thought into how to best depict it onscreen. Instead of throwing audiences right into a match, there's a scene where Harry learns all the rules from Gryffindor captain Oliver Wood (Sean Biggerstaff). By the time the first Quidditch match pops up in Harry Potter, fans have a good idea about what to expect. It's one of the most exciting set pieces in the first movie, and Columbus' attention to detail certainly paid off. Now audiences everywhere know just how Quidditch works, which is no small feat.

幸运的是,哥伦布明白把魁地奇比赛做好的重要性,他花了很多心思在如何把它最好地描绘在银幕上。影片中有一个场景,哈利从格兰芬多队队长奥利弗·伍德(肖恩·比格斯塔夫饰)那里学到所有的规则,而不是直接把观众扔进比赛。当第一场魁地奇比赛出现在《哈利·波特》里时,粉丝们已经很清楚将会发生什么。这是第一部电影中最激动人心的场景之一,而哥伦布对细节的关注当然得到了回报。现在世界各地的观众都知道魁地奇比赛是如何进行的了,这可是个不小的成就。
