While we’re used to seeing Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson on our screens, it’s still rather odd to see them paired up as they are in the newest trailer for the Harry Potter franchise.

The Twilight directors have done it again. They’ve crafted a gorgeous trailer that is both nostalgic and exciting at the same time. From the first Harry Potter movie to the most recent release, the franchise has always been a source of both joy and frustration for many.

And now that Stewart and Pattinson are under the same trailer, it’s even more apparent how much they truly get along. They have a carefree chemistry that makes you forget that they’re playing different characters.

It’s clear that Stewart and Pattinson have a lot of fun playing off of each other. Moreover, it seems like they have a blast making the movies. When Stewart is heard laughing throughout the trailer, it’s evident that she’s having a good time. She seems truly happy that she gets to play such a cool character and have fun with it.

The chemistry between the two is undeniable. And it seems like they’re having a blast making this movie, as well. The Harry Potter franchise has always been a bit of a roller coaster. We’ve had some of the most iconic scenes from the series recreated cinematically. And then we’ve had some of the most disastrous moments, as well. But this trailer is a happy medium. It mixes both nostalgic and humorous elements in a way that makes you feel excited for the film. And it seems like the actor is having a blast playing dual roles in the franchise finale.

The Past and Present of Robert Pattinson

Even before Twilight, Pattinson was an established English actor, having played memorable roles in the films Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Four Lions. Moreover, as we’ve mentioned, he has been in several other Potter films, as well. This is mainly due to the fact that he’s played Cedric Diggory in all of the Harry Potter films. Diggory was Harry’s best friend until he was murdered by Voldemort. As a result, he became a martyr that the young wizard could rally around. So, in a way, it’s only fitting that Pattinson would play a part in the last Harry Potter film. But to make things even more curious, he’s the only actor who has played the same character in every film.

Since then, most of his movies have been based on or inspired by fiction. And that’s probably because he admires the work of J.K. Rowling. Moreover, she’s a massive influence on his life. Before the Twilight saga began, he had already co-written a book about magic that was based on her work. So it’s only natural that he’d want to play a part of this world. And, arguably, he does. As we mentioned, he has a blast playing both parts in the trailer. He seems to be having as much fun with the new role as he did with the last. And, in a way, it makes sense that he’d play another young wizard in a franchise that began with Luke Evans’ Harry. Harry was a loner. He didn’t have many friends. And he wasn’t always that lucky either. So, in a way, Robert Pattinson is the perfect fit for this role. Harry Potter has always been a bit of an anti-social character, as well. He spent most of his time in school reading and protecting his friends’ happiness. And it seems like the film is displaying that aspect of the character.

The Future of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson

As we’ve established, Stewart and Pattinson have been in several other collaborations. They’ve worked together on the cameras before. So it comes as no great surprise that they’d end up playing parts in the same movie. But this is the first time they’ve truly broken out of their shell. And it seems like they’ve really found a passion for working together. This trailer is a great example of that. They have a chemistry that makes it easy to forget that they’re playing different characters. And, of course, we all know that Stewart is the better actor. So this could very well be the beginning of something special.

Additionally, their characters in this trailer represent a far cry from their typical roles. For instance, in the last film, Pattinson’s character was a mousy nerd who was often bullied by the popular kids. And Stewart’s character was a brash, if naive socialite. So, in a sense, this is a step towards maturity for both actors. Moreover, it seems like these roles could help them find a much wider audience. It’s easy to see how this version of Harry could become a rallying point for those who feel passionately about the wizarding world. And it’s always great to see a trailer that’s filled with that kind of energy. It makes you eager to see the film.

The Importance of Nostalgia

In the same way that some people love going back in time and experiencing classic moments of TV and film, other people love to see iconic scenes recreated. Even though the Harry Potter films have aged well, it’s still important to see them played out before our eyes. Nostalgia is a powerful emotion. And it’s one that the trailer masterfully taps into. The movie is set in 2029, which was a year after the last Harry Potter movie was released. So it’s safe to assume that a few things have changed. For one, mobile phones have taken over the world. They’re what’s used to communicate in the movie. Moreover, spells seem to be done either through voice commands or text messages. So there’s definitely a millennial influence in play here. It almost seems like the film is set in the middle of a war. And a lot of the action takes place on water. That, of course, is a nod to the increasing popularity of surfing as a pastime. And that, in turn, could be a reference to the increasing amount of fake news that emerged as a result of the 2016 US presidential election. One of the biggest stories that emerged was the so-called Pizzagate scandal. In this instance, fake news websites reported that the Podesta family, who were prominent Hillary Clinton supporters, ran a child pornography ring out of a Washington pizza parlor. It was later revealed that this was all an elaborate hoax.

Whether or not this is all intentional, it’s clear that nostalgia has played a role in the development of this film. The trailer masterfully dips into our psyche and holds our attention with the help of a few choice scenes from the last installment. It even goes out of its way to show scenes that most people have probably forgotten about. It’s clear that these moments had a special meaning for the director. In an interview with NPR, J.K. Rowling admitted that she deliberately inserted a “honeymoon sequence” into the last film just to evoke that memory.

That’s exactly what this trailer does, as well. We’re transported back in time to Harry’s first meeting with the girl of his dreams. It’s a wonderful bit of nostalgia. It makes you long to go back and relive those simpler times. And it’s certainly no accident that the scene is recreated with such fondness. It seems that the team behind the trailer wanted to pay homage to the last movie and give us a taste of what was to come. It really is a cinematic version of an old advertisement: “See how well the last film did. And now, experience how great it could be.”

The Final Word

While we have our doubts, we can’t help but be a little bit excited about the Harry Potter franchise. It’s a bit of a nostalgia trip, sure. But it’s also filled with so much potential. The story of the last film is one that millions have found themselves in at one point or another. It’s a coming-of-age tale about a young man who discovers that the world is not always as beautiful as he first imagined it to be. It’s a sweet and beautiful story. It deserves to be told, and it’s great to see it on the big screen once again. It seems like this franchise is going to be here for the long haul. So long, Granger.
