It’s here, and it’s epic. The first trailer for the final Harry Potter film (sniff!) has hit the Web, and though Warner Bros. seems to be yanking videos from YouTube, we’ve found a list of links that are still working. You can check out one video here: Harry and co. jump right into the action as Voldemort lays siege to Hogwarts.
What I especially like is that they linger on the big mystery of the final book: Locating and destroying the seven Horcruxes. We also see Harry and Voldemort face-to-face in battle — am I the only one who gets a bit of a shiver at their final confrontation, even though we know how it ends? If you look closely, you’ll also see the Weasleys kneeling over one of the many characters who die. And Snape! All devious but secretly… Well, I won’t spoil it for those few who haven’t yet completed the series.
Deathly Hallows, Part 2 comes out on July 15 — we can’t wait. Which scenes are you most looking forward to? I’ve said it before, but the showdown with Malfoy (and a dragon!) in the Room of Requirement will be fantastic. That, and the tour into the heart of Gringotts Bank.
