With trailer for 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2', Harry begins his final wand wave [Video]

April 28, 2011 |  1:31 pm

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.

Should 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1' have come out in 3-D?

Can't wait! Can't wait! Can't wait! Can't wait! .....but still, it's the end, so it's very sad too.

It does look like the end for a lot of the characters, although perhaps not the ones you might expect. I wonder though how many people are going to be attracted to the 3D aspect of the film, especially since it was pulled from the previous film. Will 3D be delivered to Part II?

i like this one..i am so excited to see the much awaited final movie of harry potter..so sad that its going to end..

Does anyone know if the filmed epilogue will be included in the part 2 movie?

@Cassidy -- Daniel Radcliffe said in an interview that they extended the Epilogue past what was shown in the book. So it will be a little more in depth than the book (since the book just painted us ONE scene 19 years later).

so can't wait to see this. only two more months ya!!!!!
