It’s nearly here. The conclusion of the Harry Potter film franchise: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. It’s been a long road, with seven previous movies having already been released since 2001, and the books still coming out during those theater releases.
I started to like the movies more and more as they progressed, except the hiccup that was Goblet of Fire after the amazing Prisoner of Azkaban. I’m probably the only Harry Potter fan in the world who just watched Deathly Hallows Part 1 a week ago. I wanted to try to hold out so I could watch the two parts together just as the second was coming out. Alas, I failed, but I was happy that I did because to me, Deathly Hallows Part 1 was just behind Prisoner of Azkaban for my favorite. It raised the stakes incredibly by having our heroes on the run and looking over their shoulders at every turn. The world of Harry Potter had never been more grim and dangerous.
Yes, I peed my pants too if you’re curious. It looks spectacular and I’m sure everything remaining from the book will be included. That means goblins at Gringotts, a dragon, The Battle of Hogwarts and a final confrontation between Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort.
So get ready on July 15th for the Harry Potter grand finale. It’s going to be magical. (Damn it I didn’t want to use that pun.)
Any thoughts on the trailer, or did everyone’s head explode from awesome overload? If you’re still with us please feel free to comment below!
