Less than two weeks away and Harry Potter fans every where will be treated to the first half of the final installment of the past decade’s most epic movie franchise. As a newly formed Potter fan who has just read all of the books for the first time this year, I can only emphasize my joy in these featurettes with a few words, “OH BOY!” If you have not read the book than I can assure you SPOILER WARNINGS AHEAD, these featurettes give away quite a few intricate scenes to the film plot. Check them out after the break!
The first featurette focuses on the story, what has happened after the events of Half-Blood Prince and what is in store for our heroes. As stated before, if you are unfamiliar with The Deathly Hallows please do not watch this video, it will significantly ruin your viewing experience. If you have read the book and do not fear visually ruining this movie for yourself, then by all means I suggest you take a look at this video and see for yourself how true to the book they are going to be. In my opinion, they seem to be hitting every beat of the book, which I think will give some viewers trouble if they have not read the book and certain aspects of the story may not completely add up. So my conclusion is a bunch of quick sentences to explain certain movie universe plot holes not previously explained in the past films.
This next featurette focuses on the horcruxes. I know they never explained that they need to find seven in the last movie, but this featurette they explain that they certainly do have to find the seven. Hopefully that is explained why seven otherwise it will seem kind of silly how they just jump to that conclusion. Again, please don’t watch this video if you want to get spoiled.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 will be coming to theaters and IMAX on November 19th!
