'Harry Potter' stars ink one last premiere date for 'Deathly Hallows — Part II'

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will premiere July 7

Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint will walk the red carpet together one last time for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part II," the premiere of which has just been set for July 7.

Muggles rejoice: London's massive Trafalgar Square will host the celebration for the final installment of the eight-film series before the action moves to the smaller theater hub of Leicester Square for the screening, according to our friends at Hero Complex.

"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," London Mayor Boris Johnson said in a statement.

Harry Potter series wins a BAFTAThe square is home to the National Gallery and Nelson's Column, those other British cultural icons.

J.K. Rowling's books-turned-films have aggregated many of Britain's top-billed actors for roles, including Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Michael Gambon, Gary Oldman, Emma Thompson and Maggie Smith. It also made the Radcliffe-Watson-Grint trio as popular as the boy wizard himself. So it's no mystery that the series won a British Academy of Film and Television Arts Award (the "British Oscar") last month for outstanding British contribution to cinema.

We may, however, need Professor Trelawney's seeing eye to prophesy who — wizard, witch or otherwise — will be there for the series send-off.

The film apparates worldwide July 15.
