Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 In Theaters!

It’s finally here — Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 is now in theaters across the globe. It’s been ten years since the first Harry Potter movie hit theaters (and even longer since the first book was published in the U.K. in 1997 & in the U.S. in 1998). So while it’s really exciting to finally see the last movie, it’s a tad bittersweet. It really is the end of an era.

I caught a midnight showing last night, and I can tell you that this final installment is truly spectacular. It’s beautifully filmed, brilliantly acted, and is overall just a perfect culmination to the entire series. Watching it was an emotional experience. I cried. I laughed. I cheered and clapped. And now I can’t wait to go see it again, and experience it once more. I am sad to say goodbye to this series, but I will always cherish it. And it’s one I will continue to come back to — because as J.K. Rowling said, “Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.”

So we invite you to share your Harry Potter stories in the comments below. Tell us about reading the books, seeing the movies, how these stories have impacted your life, etc.

Here is a beautiful fan-made video that offers a fitting tribute to the end of this beloved series:

  1. Just saw HP7pt2 this morning (Friday). I know many people haven’t seen it yet, so I’ll just say it was very well done. Harry, Ron, Hermione, et al were at their top forms. Alan Rickman played Snape with understatement, as usual, except for one scene where he let the emotions flow (those who’ve read the books will know what I’m talking about). Hardly noticed where the story was changed–had to be unless they wanted a 5 hour movie. It was an emotionally satisfying roller-coaster ride.
    Fair warning: bring kleenex (but blow your nose quietly.)

  2. Definitely an emotional night for me. It not only represented the end of the Harry Potter era, but it fits in nicely with the flow of my own life. The first movie came out when I was a Freshman in high school, and just next month I’ll be getting my Masters and going out into the real world. Seems very appropriate, and, as you said, very bitter-sweet.

    I was blown-away by the movie. It was a fittingly epic end to the series, and I think the best paced of the movies yet (though 5 and 6 remain my favorites). I can’t gush enough about Alan Rickman. He was absolutely perfect, and brought a sense of closure that I felt lacking in the book. I feel like I’ll be carrying around some sadness for awhile, but the movie couldn’t have been better.

  3. I’m going to see HP7pt2 on july 16th it looks so good. Plus I thingk ginny is cute. I wonder if she rilly likes harry?
