UPDATE: Collider have said that the trailer is fan made.
Not long now folks till the Harry Potter franchise at last draws itself to a close, and I have to say I’m quite saddened by the fact. Ever since the third film they have subsequently set a very high standard for all fantasy films. We’ve had cheap knock offs and none of them have yet matched the quality set by the Potter franchise. So with the July 15th release date quickly approaching, we have a teaser trailer for the concluding part, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and it looks fantastic. I really liked the first part and I am so looking forward to this.
The only disheartening thing about this trailer is that we will be getting the final chapter in retro fitted 3D, in a post conversion, which are complete wastes of time. The first part was originally going to be in 3D before Warner Bros and the filmmakers decided to bin the idea, and in seeing the first part I saw no part of it that would have been improved by being in 3D. Anyways, watch the trailer and read the synopsis below and tell us what you think. (The Daily BLAM)
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2,” is the final adventure in the Harry Potter film series. The much-anticipated motion picture event is the second of two full-length parts.
In the epic finale, the battle between the good and evil forces of the wizarding world escalates into an all-out war. The stakes have never been higher and no one is safe. But it is Harry Potter who may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer to the climactic showdown with Lord Voldemort.
It all ends here.
