No I’m not talking about M. Night Shayamalamadingdong’s new take at a Nickelodeon favorite, I’m talking about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and 2, the last installment of the HP franchise.

It’s been a long road for us HP geeks,14 years since J.K. wrote the first book at The Elephant House, 13 since my 3rd grade teacher Mrs Lopez read it to my class, and 9 years since the first movie hit projectors at local theaters. I remember getting in the car at 10 pm, picking up two pajama wearing friends(J.B./R.P.), and waiting in line to be the first to see the 3rd film in our town, and it all comes down to the final two midnights, the final two films in the Harry Potter film series.

Nerds, such as I, will notice that the trailer relies heavy on the second part of the deathly hallows book, sort of as a year long(2011) tease.

Spoilers start here.

You can see many original (2001) characters coming back onto the screen with Harry during the first 20 seconds of the film, i.e. Griphook, Bellatrix, who’s actual nature is coughHermionecough. We also see Hagrid and the flying motorcycle, but poor Hagrid seems to be knocked out.

Now the shot with Hermione holding a wand has been digitally altered to give this trailer an all ages appeal due to its bloody nature.

I am excited to see these movies, I have grown up watching these movies. It started off as a friendly enchanted feeling as I was a kid, and now that i am a young adult the movies tone has switched 180 and turned itself into an intense action packed motion picture.
