Speaking to Empire, Kloves and production designer Stuart Craig explained how they had worked on the sequences for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two.
"The battle, as a battle, didn't particularly interest me," Kloves said. "I knew [director] David Yates and his team would come up with the scale and the spectacle, but David and I at one point talked, and agreed that we wanted to tie character and emotion to everything that happened. So it wasn't just, 'Oh wow, look at that blow up!'.
"We wanted Neville involved, or Seamus. That was the hardest thing. I literally spent about three months working on the battle sequence, going back and forth with David Yates, putting dialogue in and giving the battle rhythm."
Craig said: "We've all seen battle sequences where you don't understand who you're with, where they are and it becomes a melee. We were determined that you'd be clear where everyone was, so we established a rocky hillside opposite the entrance to the school where Voldermort was, with the focus of his attack on the main entrance into the great hall.
"Also the courtyard where the defenders would assemble wasn't big enough, so at David Yates's request, I made that much, much bigger."
"The novel, and Steve Kloves's script, talked about the battlements, so we had to decide what those were. where they were and what they looked down on," he said. "We found a place within the existing geography, which overlooked the courtyard, and you could see Dumbledore's tower. Then we invented a huge interior and exterior space, an attic with the battlements alongside.
"It served the narrative; it was a place for one of the confrontations between Harry and Lord Voldermort. They're locked in this life and death struggle and Apparate together into the courtyard, and their personal battle continues there. Being interior and exterior made it more interesting and was more fun - which was often our reason for doing things."

He admits it is odd not to be working with the rest of the cast any more, saying: “These films account for 11 years of my life, so it’s really very strange to finally have finished them.“Potter gives you a safety net, so that if you go off in between you always know you will be coming back to Potter.
“Suddenly that will be taken away, so on a professional level it’s a bit frightening.”
