The premiere of the brand new theatrical teaser for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I will undoubtedly cause havoc among fans of the phenomenal franchise.
Boasting what is the first half of the finale of the worldwide-smash series, we follow Harry, Ron and Hermione as they gather to collect the rest of the Horcruxes in all hope to destroy Lord Voldemort, the dark Lord whose attempts at killing 'the boy who lived' have been foiled for years. With his control over the Ministry of Magic and Hogwarts, little hope remains for the group.
With the uprise in teen fantasies such as Twilight and Percy Jackson, it's hard not to compare the two to Harry Potter - a series which has unarguably sparked many whose attempts at competing with the Potter franchise are painfully apparent. Still, those faithful to either the books or/and the films will be eagerly anticipating this two-part finale - and with a trailer this good, i hardly blame them.
The series has created stars such as Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, but stars verterans such as Maggie Smith, John Hurt, Brendan Gleeson, Julie Walters, Imelda Staunton and countless others.
David Yates has helmed the final two chapters (as well as the previous fifth and sixth entries), and will be presented in both 3D and 2D. The first half has been scheduled for release November '10, and the second July '11.
Check below for the trailer which, sadly, is the beginning of the end of an era.
