"“We wanted to tell a story about kids who, unlike Harry and his friends, weren’t comfortable at Hogwarts. And we also wanted to look at what it’s like when you’re a parent reflecting on your own childhood and what that childhood made you into. Harry is at that age where he has to come to terms with things that he has never sorted out.”"
