Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Trailer 2 Final Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 Trailer Packs A Punch

Take a breath to savor the moment people. You are not only about to watch the final trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, you’re about to watch the last theatrical preview for any film involving the boy wizard and his friends. Period.

Everything from the character posters to a short clip unveiled in advance of Deathly Hallows: Part 2 has been focused on the concept that film is THE ultimate conclusion to the fantasy saga. A number of the movie’s one-sheets don’t even feature the title – instead, relying on people’s immediate recognition of characters like Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) or even important supporting players like Neville Longbottom (Matthew Lewis), looking bruised and battered from the final battle against Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes).

As fans familiar with J.K. Rowling’s original Deathly Hallows novels know all too well, the end-all battle at Hogwarts between the forces of good and the minions of darkness isn’t the only big event that has yet to occur on-screen. Deathly Hallows: Part 2 will begin with Harry and Co. setting-off to find one of Voldemort’s Horcruxes within the walls of the heavily-guarded Gringotts Bank – an act that eventually leads Harry, Ron (Rupert Grint), and Hermione (Emma Watson) to return to their beloved Hogwarts castle.

From there, the battle to end all battles in the wizarding world commences. Enchanted suits of armor marching to war, Voldemort’s Death Eaters swooping about like puffs of black smoke, magical flames that take the form of gigantic dragons, wizards firing killing curses left and right – not to mention, multiple deaths, dark secrets revealed, and even some romance for those left standing. Deathly Hallows: Part 2 promises to deliver everything you could expect from the finale to a franchise that’s been going on for ten years now.

Without further adieu, here’s the second (and last) trailer for Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (which originally debuted in HD over at Apple):

Those of you who got goosebumps from watching the first Deathly Hallows: Part 2 trailer are bound to have shivers running down your spine, after watching this preview. The contrast between the footage from earlier Harry Potter films and the haunting imagery from the series finale is quite effective, painting a ghastly picture of the doom and destruction that will reign down on Hogwarts – heck, even the Quidditch field is reduced to a pile of flaming debris!

On a slightly more serious note: Deathly Hallows: Part 2 should have just as much (and then some) drama, heartbreak, dazzling visual effects, and awe-inspiring action as any other entry in the blockbuster fantasy series. Based off the glimpses of some of the more emotionally-stirring moments in the film that are included in this last trailer – including Harry’s encounters with the “ghosts” of his parents and beloved godfather, Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) – there’s bound to be very few devoted Harry Potter fans that walk away from watching this thing that don’t shed at least a tear or two.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 will arrive in theaters on July 15th, 2011.

  1. Yay! I hated that Quidditch sport! ;)

    No tears from me. Just glad they’ll accomplish the goal of doing movies on all the books – which is an awesome achievement.

    But it was about time, IMO, the story reached its conclusion.

  2. Nope, not watching it, I’ll wait to see the trailer in Green Lantern. And would someone wake up Rickster please; he fainted AGAIN after watching the trailer for the 116th time. :-D

      haha yeah man. Oh you will LOVEEEE it cant wait for you to see it! :D

  3. July 15th seems like ages away. I can’t believe how great the trailers have been. We are having a Potter countdown in my house and last week we started by watching the first film working our way to DH1. This is going to be epic….

  4. Gosh I teared up just watching the trailer. I’m going to be a basket case watching the movie…

  5. You could play a drinking game to this trailer

    Take a shot whenever someone screams

  6. I have read all the harry potter books and seen all the movies and i can’t believe it’s almost all over. My oldest son watched the movies and loved it so now he is looking forward to the next part of Deathly Hallows. I am sure every fan out there will agree with me when i say Long Live Harry Potter!!

  7. So, judging by the trailer, this is going to be two hours of shouting and explosions?

    Btw: “Without further adieu…”?

    Without furter ado, I must bid thee adieu, I pray we soon can be à deux.

  8. I hate it when SR build such a film up then the link below isn’t available to the people outside America. It alienates us.

    I understand it’s not your fauly, copyright and all, but couldn’t you paste different Youtube links to the same trailer etc?

    • Steve,

      What country are you in? You should absolutely be able to see the trailer because we are hosting it ourselves.

      Let me know and I’ll look into it.

      Thanks,

      Vic

  9. fault*

  10. This trailer didn’t flow as well as the 1st but nice to see new footage though.

  11. Sorry Vic, I didn’t mean this, I just meant other articles in future, because I constantly get those error messages here in Britain, so it’s nice to see one that works lol.

    Sorry for being a bit hostile.
