This was one event that Harry Potter fans had been looking forward to for a long time: the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. And it finally happened on Friday night, July 20th, at the Odeon Leicester Square in London. The sequel to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows ended the long running series and concluded it with a bang. The final installment in the Harry Potter series was packed with action and kept fans on the edge of their seats for most of the night. After two and a half years of waiting, Harry Potter fans got the opportunity to experience the conclusion of this incredible series in real life. With the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 came a variety of stars, including Robert Pattinson, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and many more. But it was Pattinson who stole the show; he was there to support his buddy Daniel, who plays Harry Potter in the film. The Twilight star was accompanied by his wife, Bella, and several of his famous friends. The premiere of the last Harry Potter movie was a night to remember for many, as they had been waiting for this day for a long time. The sequel to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows became the highest-grossing film of all time with $9.7 billion in tickets sold around the world, making it a monumental success.
Pattinson And Radcliffe
The premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 kicked off with a bang as four of the movie’s stars — Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, and John Hurt — came down the red carpet together. The quartet was there to promote their new film, The Darjeeling Limited, which also stars Robert Pattinson and opens in theaters today. Radcliffe and Grint co-starred in the Harry Potter series as well as the Fantastic Beasts series, while Watson played the role of Hogwarts Professor McGonagall in all three. John Hurt plays the role of Smeagol in the trilogy, one of the film adaptations of the literary adventures of J.K. Rowling’s famous character, Hagrid.
The foursome looked dashing as they walked down the red carpet together, and the photographers had a field day as the cast posed for group and individual photos. The attendees were dressed in everything from Burberry coats to velvet dresses, and looked determined to have a good time. After months of promoting the new Harry Potter installment, the cast and crew clearly had fun at the premiere, which was important because it is said that behind the scenes, tensions were running high. The fans were going to be disappointed if the movie wasn’t up to par, and the cast and crew were worried about letting everyone down.
A Surprise Appearance
Before the screening, the audience were treated to a special appearance by director David Yates. He took the stage and thanked the audience for their loyalty over the years. After promoting the new Harry Potter installment for several months, it was nice to have a day when fans could just sit back and enjoy the film. He also revealed a special moment from the set of the Deathly Hallows Part 2 that will surprise the audience. He also thanked the fans for their continued support and let them know how much he appreciated it.
The movie had been in production for over two years, and it was clear that a lot had gone into making it as good as possible. Most of the fans in the audience had been following the film’s progress since it was first announced that it would be made. And now they would finally get to see it, after two and a half years of waiting. The entire cast and crew were clearly pleased with the results, and it was great to see them share their excitement with the audience.
A Thrilling Introduction
The film opened with a bang as the soundtrack of J.K. Rowling’s bestselling novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, blasted out over the speakers. The familiar strains of “You’ll Be In My Heart,” blared into the cinema as a giant screen behind the screen filled the room with the colors of the Harry Potter book covers. Fans of the series were instantly transported back in time as they watched the movie’s opening sequence, which also served as a prologue to the story. After two years of working on the book and several months of pre-production, the director finally allowed the fans to see what he had been working hard to bring to life on the big screen.
Then came the cast of the Harry Potter series: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson as they walked across the stage to rapturous applause. They were followed by the entire main cast, which included the likes of Katherine Waterston, Michael Gambon, Kenneth Branagh, and more. Branagh, who plays the role of Dumbledore in the series, gave a brief but sweet speech before the film’s premiere, thanking the audience for their continued support. He also mentioned that while they were making the movie, they thought of the audience a lot and how they would feel about the story’s ending.
The director then showed a clip from the previous installment: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, which opens with a quote from the great William Shakespeare: “Honor, justice, and allegiance are the three most precious things in the world: they are the pillars of a man’s life. Without them, everything else is nothing.” The entire audience rose to their feet as the final installment of the Harry Potter series was introduced. The music swelled as the camera drew back to reveal a mass of people dressed in black, gray, and white, with scarves and umbrellas, waving glow sticks and shinning shoes. It was a dark night in London, but the fans had fun none the less as they waited for the next installment of one of the most popular film series of all time.
