In anticipation for the July 15 release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, Warner Bros. has released two new featurettes that focus on both parts of the final chapter in Harry’s journey.
In “Where We Left off”, clips of the trailers from both Deathly Hallows films are interspersed with snippets of interviews with cast members Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson, Director David Yates, Producers David Heyman and David Barron. The clip basically gives a recap of the key points from Deathly Hallows – Part 1 and sets fans up for what to expect in Part 2.
In “The Story”, the aforementioned cast and crew talk about the plot for Part 2, which will conclude Harry, Ron and Hermione’s horcrux hunt with the final battle at Hogwarts, where heavy losses will hit both sides. Where Part 1 was mostly a character-and-plot building story, Part 2 is being boasted as an “action” film from start to finish. Truths will be revealed, destinies will be fulfilled, and a few well-missed faces will return as Harry ends his lifelong battle against Voldemort. But when the battle is over and the dust has settled, which side will claim victory?
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 will be in theaters nationwide on July 15.
