Warner Bros. has bestowed upon us a brand new theatrical trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the two-part conclusion to the most successful movie franchise of all time.
After six magic-filled installments, Harry, Ron and Hermione have to face up to the evil Lord Voldermort in a battle that feels very much like the culmination of everything that’s happened so far.
Along with familiar faces there’s also some new actors joining the franchise for its final journey including Bill Nighy, Rhys Ifans and David O’Hara (Wanted). The Harry Potter franchise has always had a wonderful cast of great (often classic British) actors, just one of the many things the series has to offer.
I know it’s the marketing team’s job to make every movie look good but the trailers for Deathly Hallows so far have looked pretty spectacular and this latest one is certainly no different. Enjoy the trailer for yourself below:
On top of the trailer there’s also a bunch of new Potter pics that have been released. Take a look at a selection of them:

Even if splitting Deathly Hallows into two parts is really just so WB can effectively double their profits on the last HP film, it’s not exactly a bad thing for fans of the franchise. Yes, it means that audiences will have to wait eight months after Part 1 to find out how the whole story concludes (that’s if they haven’t already read the last book to know) but it also means fans have double the time left to spend immersed with these characters in this fantastic world.
I’m not the world’s biggest Harry Potter fan but I’ll definitely be there on opening day of both parts of the last film.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 is released on November 19th, 2010, with Part 2 following next summer on July 15th, 2011.
