Holy Potter! The new, full-length Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 trailer is here. Wizards, Muggles, house elves, brace yourselves. And, if possible, remember to breathe through these next two minutes and 26 seconds. I mean it, I can’t be responsible for any passing out or hitting of heads. And, go.
Shaking? Crying? Rocking back and forth while wailing? All normal. Give yourself time. Biscuit? What? No time? World’s ending? OK, well I guess we’ll have to soldier on then.
Now, those unfamiliar with the final chapter in the Harry Potter series might be a little confused by that onslaught of ominous images. And your questions might be more in the line of: Why does dude with no nose want to kill Harry? Wait, is Harry in a dress? How did Hermoine get so pretty, remember when her hair was all frizzy? They grow up so fast!
Hardcore Potterites, meanwhile, will be buzzing about some of the most iconic moments in the final book.
Harry and Hermoine visit his parents grave at Godric’s Hollow.
Voldemort enters Dumbledore’s tomb to steal his wand.
A sextet of Harry doppelgangers are created to confuse the Death Eaters.
Dobby the House Elf!
And as if that wasn’t enough the trailer also packs in Death Eaters, double-decker buses, Snape, snakes, flying motorbikes, flying Thestrals, wand fights, best friend fights and He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named hissing “I have seen your heart…and it is mine.”
All in all, I’d say it’s definitely worthy of its own billing as the “Epic Finale.” How about you? Or are you still going on with the shaking and crying?
