The final conclusion to the decade long franchise is finally upon us. On a personal level, I had mixed feelings going into the movie. Harry Potter has been a part of my life since 4th grade. I remember going to every movie in theaters (slthough I think I missed the second one, which apparently means I can’t remember all that well). With any normal franchise, its welcome would have wore out with most people a long time ago, but not with Harry. The series set forth on the uneasy task of maturing with the fans, as years went on the stories became more complex, the danger more dire. Harry went from a boy bewildered by chocolate frogs to stubble covered action star in a decade's time.
9 years. That's how long it's been since the original Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone film came out. Before Twilight, before the Iraq war, before Facebook, there was just a young wizard who made children believe in magic again. 9 years is also the amount of time that people had to jump on the Hogwarts train or be left standing on the platform, oblivious to J. K. Rowling's epic series. To that end, there are really no words I can say that would change the opinions of those who saw that first film, because those opinions have been molded and refined over a decade of wonderment and fascination. So the question is, does the penultimate movie in the octology of "the boy who lived" carry on the seemingly unstoppable legacy that the Harry Potter movies have laid forth?
Seriously, if I didn't know anything about the Harry Potter series, I would think it's some kind of crazy, magic, action movie. Then again, I haven't read the seventh book so I don't know what happens anyway. I kinda gave up on the movies, but these past couple trailers are really making me second guess myself. If you want to see some pretty sweet looking special effects, explosions, and the always adorable Emma Watson, check out the trailer after the break.
