Just a few days ago we got our first look at Part 1 of the upcoming 7th and final installment in the Harry Potter franchise, entitled Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, via a couple of officially released images. They weren’t terribly exciting, basically just showing off the cast of Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson.

Now, straight from studio Warner Bros. we have our first proper look at footage from the last Harry Potter flick via the first teaser trailer. The teaser is featured on the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince DVD/Blu-ray (which comes out in a couple of days, FYI) as incentive for fans to run out and buy it.

The actual teaser footage lasts just under a minute, but the whole video lasts one minute and 50 seconds and features introductions by director David Yates and producer David Heyman, as well as some behind-the-scenes footage. I’m sure if you’re a die hard HP fan you’ll want to watch the whole thing, but if you’re not, and you want to get right to the actual teaser, just skip ahead to the 55 second mark.

[Update: Old voiceover has video replaced with new proper teaser]

Special thanks to MovieWeb. Watch and enjoy:

I like how the teaser seems to be designed to educate people who may not have read the books about just what the heck the “Deathly Hallows” are. The name, like Half-Blood Prince, will only make full sense once you see the movie. Having said that, this very much functions as a teaser, as it feels like we’re only seeing a small glimpse of the story (why are our three wizards running through the woods, for example?).

Oh, and I LOVE that they’ve got the brilliant John Hurt in there again, for the first time since his appearance in The Sorcerer’s Stone (he played the wand shop owner, remember?). Is there ANYTHING that man can’t make sound interesting with his voice?

I’m sure the full trailer(s) that we see for Deathly Hallows will show off the magic we’re used to, as well as the special effects employed to make them a “reality.” But this teaser, over 11 months in advance, will definitely do for now.

  1. Wow, that gave me goosebumps!
    Why so long away???

  2. It’s aazing what a good trailer can do, look at Superman Returns, not a bad film, but the trailer was awesome!

  3. Hot damn! I better finish reading this book! Damn my failing eyesight! I so hate having to put on glasses to read. I don’t want to see this film if I haven’t read the book.

  4. Well, looks like you’ve got (FRUSTRATINGLY) a year to read it!
    I for one am jealous of you Mike, I’d love to read it afresh again wihtout knowing how it ends ;(
    Best book of the series, so it should be the best films, but I don’t see how they’re going to fit it all in, even in 2 films!
    They better have a big budget!

  5. I loved the Deathly Hallows book the most. The books are definitely some of the best out there. Yes, the films do not do complete justice to them but I love them anyway. They have got progressively better and that makes me excited for the last two. Thankfully it’s been split, so that should make it easier for them. Actually it could even be two three-hour movies if they wanted – there’s a lot that happens in that book. Cant wait.

  6. Golly!I thought this saga never gonna end!Thank goodness!All you really need is watch the 1st one cause every sequel is almost the same, good guy fighting bad guy…Almost the same plot over and over!!

  7. this movie is gonna be the best movie ever out of all harry potters and any other movie in the would

  8. Hmmm. I guess I’m getting too old or something because that teaser didn’t impress me that much. Of course, it is just a teaser. I’m sure I will like it just as I liked the others.

  9. I’m really worried, not because that teaser wasnt great, it really was. The last film was awful, it completely missed the point of the book, cut out huge chunks of important story details, and more heinously added loads of useless stuff that was never in the book in the first place.

    The Half Blood Prince was the first time i had watched Harry Potter and not felt the magic.

    The choice to split the last book into two films was a good one, as there is so much to tell, but the films have started to lose the spirit that made the books such a delight to read.

    And all this talk of setting it more in the real world, that is not what I want to see, I want magic and wizards! If they cut anything out of the last book, I’ll be annoyed, yes the book is long, but these are likely to be 2 two and half hour movies. Plenty of time to tell the whole story.

  10. Looking forward to the beginning of the final act .

  11. Is this finally the last Potter film?

  12. @790

    Part 1 one of the last film.

    I think the trailer looks pretty good.

  13. wtf wheres the trailer its not hear please tell me where i can c it it says no longer available????

  14. @ Iron Knight

    thank you so much!!!

  15. And once again, one of the reasons I don’t like to show unofficial trailers on the site proves itself valid.

    Sorry, guys, I’m sure an official version will be out soon.


  16. Hey Harry Potter fans: BIG contest coming tomorrow (Monday) morning. :-D


  17. I love the Potter films…

    The wait is too long…November is a long ways away…

  18. i read all the books, and watched all the movies so far. i must say that my favorite movie was #5, reason being it stayed the closest to the material with the fight scenes and how everyone was involved. SPOILER ALERT!!!…………….
    book 6 there was an even a bigger battle, but didn’t see that in the movie, hopefully they stay true to book #7 and we will have yet to see, the biggest Harry Potter battle in all the passed years!!


  19. this movie is the best movie ever harry potter and the deathly harrow,an intresting movie. simply the best.

  20. Harry potter a great name to every one. I like most to read harry potter and movie also enjoyable. Thanks J.K Rowling.

  21. Harry potter a great name to every one. I like most to read harry potter and movie also enjoyable. Thanks J.K Rowling.

  22. Order of the Phoenix was good, but I am disappointed with some parts. One, Sirius was not killed by Bellatrix herself, but rather he fell into the veil due to his duel against Bellatrix. That's one crucial fact I think they should have maintained. I liked the fight scenes though, it was magical but rather short. I think it somehow failed to emphasize why it's even “Order of the Phoenix” at some points. But all in all, it was still great…of course, because the books are.
