With trailer for 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2', Harry begins his final wand wave [Video]
On Wednesday, we got the first taste of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2" with a trailer (the first of what will likely be several) showing a flurry of action, dragons, explosions and, of course, wand-play.
This final chapter will wrap up the major quest begun In "Part I," in which Harry set off on an odyssey to destroy Horcruxes, objects containing fragments of the soul of Lord Voldemort, discovering powerful objects that could help win the war against evil.
The series has grown from a simple foray into a magical world into a full-fledged dark fantasy with world-ending implications, and that dire mood is set early in the trailer. Unfortunately, with the frenetic series of action sequences, those who have seen only the movies and shied away from the bicep-building books may be a little lost on some plot points.
Still, we do get a tantalizing sense of what's to come, particularly as we're teased by images of the battle of Hogwarts, one of the central events of the movie for anyone not named Harry Potter.
