‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2’ Final Trailer

The final trailer for the final film, and the final trailer for any Harry Potter film for that matter (for now), was released by Apple yesterday around 7 p.m. Eastern time. Naturally it is all over YouTube and the Internet now. The trailer starts off with Lily Potter speaking to a baby Harry in his crib and then goes through a montage of past films before getting into the final film. This trailer has some interesting bits, including some awesome battle scenes. It does show Harry confronting Snape over Dumbledore’s death with students looking on in the Great Hall (definitely not in the book). However we do see a part of the Resurrection Stone scene where Harry is accompanied by Lily, James, Sirius, and Remus. Enjoy!

  1. huh. I think that’s the same book I read. Wait, no, what was that? Harry and Voldemort each crawling for the Elder Wand? That’s not in there – it must be a dream! Or rather a nightmare.

    Wow, Behold, good catch with the Snape bit. That was but a millesecond. Good eye.

    I did see Molly’s coup de grace. Yeah baby! Loved the look on Julie Walter’s face – I’d forgotten what a great actress she is.

    Cool Trailer.

    But Behold – this is not the last trailer ever. This tale will be retold again on film or TV. At least, I dearly hope so. Because this entire cinematic series has not been definitive to me.

  2. Awesome. Totally awesome.

    Highlights: Lily saying “Always.” Harry and Hermione reaching out for one another – always more energy in that relationship than in any other. Ron sheltering Hermione (?) in his arms. Baby Harry watching his about-to-be-killed mum. Harry saying “Come on, Tom. We started this together.” Shot of the Quidditch pitch intact, and in flames.

    I love it.

  3. Bennu,

    For obvious reasons, I CAN NOT call this ‘a coup de grace’ for Molly.

    I despise JKR for killing me this way. Believe me, if there’s a way to return from the dead, I will find it. Then I’ll get my revenge on Molly.

    I just don’t appreciate how I’m put into a 3 against one fight. Then I start to gain some ground, and then Molly calls me a ‘b…h.’ Ginny ws trying to kill me just the same. So there is a bit of, what do you call it? (Good guy hypocrisy?)

    Funny paradox…Of all the books, “Half Blood Prince” was the one I enjoyed the most. And “Deathly Hallows” was the one I enjoyed THE LEAST.

  4. Bellatrix, I started a thread on the forum under the Novels – HP and the Deathly Hallows – called The Mind of Bellatrix Lestrange. Perhaps you will want to view that and post there if you feel the urge to expound about what you perceive as the unfair treatment of yourself. It would be interesting to see your thoughts on the questions I’ve posed there.

    That way – we can stay On Topic here and pursue the intriguing insights you have on being the right hand woman of the most evil Wizard in Potterdom. 🙂

  5. I’m with Bennu. I hope (and expect) that this will *not* be the last HP film ever. I would love to see a 7-year TV series that could do the books justice (appx 1 chapter per episode)…..

    Now what do I have to do to get WB to hire me as the showrunner….. Hmmm…..

  6. I hope there will be a television series or a new movie franchise down the line to offer a different take on the novels. The “EVER” part was a bit extreme. 🙂

  7. Send me the link please Bennu. I want to see it!

    Along with Janet and Johnny, I hope this isn’t the end. (Putting aside my own fury, I resent the concept that evil can simply be defeated and destroyed.) Anyone with any knowledge of evil knows that evil is never really defeated. Oh, it has to retreat sometimes. But it is NEVER destroyed.

    Putting aside my own bias against JKR for what she did to me, this is one concept of her writing that I DO NOT LIKE.

    This story can NOT end the way “Deathly Hallows” ends. (That’s really why it’s the one book I hate in the saga.)

    Anyone with any knowledge of evil knows that you can’t just challenge and defeat it. Oh, evil has to retreat sometimes. But it is NEVER destroyed.

    I would hate to think “Deathly Hallows” (the one book I did NOT like) is the end. There has to be a way to continue.

  9. Whoops, you posted twice Bellatrix. Not a problem, someone can erase the first post if you want.

    To get to the thread I posted:
    1. Scroll up this page you’re on now to the very tippy top
    2. Between “Tricia Prinzi” and “News” you will see “Forum” Click on that.
    3. That will bring you to the Forum, scroll down to the Novels and Click on Deathly Hallows.
    4. The first subject you will see is The Mind of Bellatrix Lestrange Click on that and you’re there.

    If you want to post a message scroll to the top, on the left side is “register”, Click on that, fill out the information and you’re good to go – welcome to the Forum.

    Also if you’re brave enough – “Off Topic” is at the very bottom of the Index Page under “Soap Box” – there you can follow our debate on just about anything – including the Bible (no restrictions there).

  10. Hi Bennu.

    I had a slight problem with my computer. My screen has been resetting and flashing a little. I don’t know why that was.

    If someone wants to erase the 1st that’s probably a good idea.

  11. Watched it again. Loved it again.

    This is what Harry says: “Come on, Tom. Let’s finish this the way we started it. Together.”

    Nice. Almost perfect, actually (marred only by Radcliffe’s accent, which is not BBC, or perhaps because he hasn’t had stage training (yet) and doesn’t really project or make the most of his lines).

    But like I was saying: great stuff. And I do not need the lines in the movie to directly follow the dialogue in the book. In fact, Lily speaking the word “Always” is so right and so fraught with meaning, that it’s better than the analogous line in the book which is spoken by James: “Until the very end.”

  12. LOVE it. I think I finally really have hope for the last film. I’ve been trying to think of how in the world the DH2 won’t be a letdown after the brilliance of DH1. I’m encouraged.

    The only thing I really don’t like Bennu noted in comment #1. As soon as I finished watching the trailer, I thought, “They better not make this out to actually be about the Elder Wand.” Harry firmly decides against the Elder Wand in the book, and he knows when he returns that the safest place it can possibly be in the final duel is in Voldemort’s hands, since Harry is its true master.

    Back on the positive side: JKR set up a final confrontation between Harry and Snape at the end of HBP, and she didn’t follow through. I didn’t like that. So I’m really excited that they wrote one into the film.

  13. By the way, I have NO idea why “Tricia Prinzi” is in the menu bar. We can’t seem to get it out. My tech elf knows about it.

  14. I almost cried at the shot of Tonks and Lupin reaching out to one another (I’ll probably be a blubbering idiot by the time it gets to that scene in the movie; I’m going to cry so much!). I’m quite glad we’ll get to actually see this scene in the movie (however sad it might be). Truth be told – in my first reading I was going so fast that it wasn’t until Lupin showed up in the forest entrance scene that I realized he had even been killed.

    Does anyone else have any concern about the whole Harry/Voldemort jumping off the building scene?? I’m hoping that this just a dream sequence since I can’t really tell how this will fit into the actual final ‘duel’ between Harry and Voldemort. Besides that, I get shivers every time I watch the trailer.
