Harry Potter cast is our “Hollywood Movie Star of the Week”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The end is near. For some, it already has begun.

Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and the stars of the “Harry Potter” series started saying goodbye to the massive franchise with a world premiere for the film in London on Thursday. The farewell tour extends into next week, with premieres in New York ahead of the film’s July 15 opening.

And then, “Harry Potter” will be gone.

Not forever, of course. The Boy Who Lived will live on in our memories. He’ll return every time we crack open J.K. Rowlings’ books or pop in one of the eight fantastic film on Blu-ray and DVD. Gone, maybe, but never forgotten.

We do know, however, that we’ll never see a franchise like this on screen again. Eight amazing films from four different filmmakers that never dropped in quality and went on to earn (so far) more than $2 billion at the domestic box office and far more worldwide. Staggering.

We hate to see you go, Harry. But before we let you leave, we wanted to name the cast of the “Harry Potter” series our “Hollywood Movie Star of the Week.” Thanks for the magic.
