A new behind-the-scenes featurette for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has made its way online. The video is from ABC Family and it focuses on the story of the final chapter of the biggest grossing film franchise in history (when not adjusted for inflation).
The seventh and final entry in the Harry Potter series revolves around the efforts of young Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint), and Hermione (Emma Watson) as they attempt to find and destroy the remaining horcruxes, so as to make the Dark Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) mortal once more.
Most of what you see in the video looks as if its mainly related to Part 2 but that’s not surprising because using action to advertise the film is more likely to make it look exciting for potential viewers.
Watch the featurette below:
The thing that added a lot of weight to the last couple of HP flicks – but it’s particularly true of Deathly Hallows - is the real element of danger. This time around, the stakes are the highest they’ve ever been and I’m sure a big part of what will attract audiences is to see if the main trio of characters overcome the odds and face their greatest threat ever.
I’ve always been a fan of the Harry Potter franchise (Prisoner of Azkaban being my favorite so far) and I’m very excited to see how it all ends. If we go by what the cast and crew are saying in this featurette, the ending is going to be action-packed and very fast paced – Always a good thing to hear about a blockbuster.
What do you think of the behind-the-scenes featurette? Are you a big fan of the HP franchise or is it just another blockbuster series to you?
Part 1 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows opens on November 19th, 2010, with Part 2 following next summer on July 15th, 2011.
