We’ve all been waiting for it (and when I say “we”, I mean cool people who are awesome). Yes, it is indeed the first teaser for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 1. HP fans rejoice!
Deathly Hallows was one of my favorite books in the whole series and while not everyone will agree with me, I thought their departure from Hogwarts was a good choice. Unlike in years past, the kids are unable to distract themselves from the dangers that they face and the tension and fear is a much more constant element in their lives. I’ve been patiently awaiting any footage of these moments for quite some time. Even just seeing Hermione shakily put protective spells around her fallen friends after the Ministry was pretty awesome (blood on her hands and all).
After watching the video, I am so excited. The moment I saw Shell Cottage, I got chills. And even though I wasn’t entirely pleased with the last film, I have such high hopes for these last two because this is when things really get interesting.
We also get to see some short clips of shooting and interviews before the trailer. So, even though it’s not in the trailer, we get to see a glimpse into Bill’s wedding and other footage of the kids (including Godric’s Hollow).
Did I mention we have less than a year, people? *GLEE*
EDIT: So the trailer has now been taken down. I’ve tried looking for other versions, but WB must have gotten them all. I have to run to work tonight, but I’ll keep an eye out for it in the next few days. Hopefully we’ll find one.
EDIT AGAIN: Look, I found a not-deleted version! Look on my discovery, ye Mighty, and despair!
