Harry Potter Trailer & More!

The final trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 has been released, and I'm not going to lie. I get choked up every time I watch this. Maybe because it's the culmination of years of living with these characters like family, eagerly anticipating the next time I could plunge headfirst into their magical world. Maybe because this is the moment where everyone I've grown to love steps up and discovers what they're truly made of. Maybe it's when Tonks and Lupin reach for each other but can't quite connect. Maybe it's all of it, but I'm bringing tissue with me when I see this movie because I am going to be wrecked.

Also? J.K. Rowling just launched a site called Pottermore which links to a youtube page counting down to a huge announcement. Rumor has it, she'll be writing more stories from the Harry Potter world. I know I'll be anxiously waiting to hear!


  1. Oh God... it's the end of an era. I think after seeing this, I'll come home and just sit there for days wondering what to do with my life. Harry Potter started me reading. I don't want to see it end. *Snivel*

  2. I am going to bawl like a baby when Harry's in the forest with his parents and Sirius. I'd better bring *lots* of tissues!

  3. Yeah the forest scene is going to slay me if it's anything like the book. I bawled through that entire chapter. CAN'T WAIT!!!

    (Also, her publicist or whoever did say it's not a new book, but who knows??!)

  4. I have watched this trailer over and over again in the last 20 minutes and I can't believe this is the end. I'm going to be the same as you: clutching a huge box of tissues. Heck, I'm already doing that after watching this. XD

    As for the announcement, my friends and I have been wondering if it is a online game or a cartoon show - the graphics of the owls looks so much like one of those two choices. I'm still holding out for more stories, though.

  5. It's going to be amazing and heartbreaking and everything in between!

  6. Holy. Frickin'. A.

    I've been avoiding anything HP-related b/c I'm spoiler averse, but for some reason the video just looked so gorgeous on your post and I was alone and ready. So I finally caved and watched it here and now I'm sitting with chills, totally emotional.

    Like others, I don't know how I'm going to let go!

  7. Great, great post! It’s something I have never thought about, really, but it makes a whole lot of sense. Thanks for sharing
