“Harry Potter” planning July world premiere for final film


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The “Harry Potter” franchise – which will go down in history as the most impressive and accomplished film franchise in motion picture history – will draw to a close this summer when “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” opens in July. Today, we’re learning about the planned world-premiere festivities for the eighth and final “Potter” installment.

London’s legendary Trafalgar Square will host the July 7 premiere. The red carpet festivities will take over Trafalgar before patrons shift to Leicester Square for the anticipated screening.

“For the last decade we’ve been gripped by the on-screen battle between Harry Potter and his arch enemy Lord Voldemort and this is one of the most eagerly awaited films in history,” said London mayor Boris Johnson in a statement. “As befits a great British triumph, I can think of no better venue than the iconic surroundings of Trafalgar Square in which to stage the most spectacular of send offs.”

It is going to be a massive party, a tremendous “farewell” and “thank you” to a once-in-a-lifetime movie franchise that has earned nearly $6.4 billion at the box office. The conclusion of “Deathly Hallows” promises the spectacular Battle of Hogwarts, as well as Harry’s final moments with … wait, I’m not spoiling it for you.

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2,” directed by David Yates, opens in the U.S. on July 15.
