It’s been out for a week, but it’s new to me! The final book in JK Rowling’s series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, is split in two parts. The first part hits theaters in less than two months, November 19, with the final film following six months later in July.  Being an enormous fan of the books, I’m more than a wee bit excited.Even though the books are infinitely better, and they always screw up the films, I love them just the same. But I often wonder how anyone who hasn’t read the books could enjoy them much. Do they stand up well on their own?

The final book of the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,  will be broken into two movies, the first hitting theaters next November, with the grand finale following that next summer. This trailer includes footage from both movies. How do I know that, you ask? Because I’m such an enormous Harry Potter fan/geek, that I instantly recognized most of the scenes in the trailer, and then went back over them, shot by shot, frame by frame to identify those that flashed by too quickly the first time, to make sure I didn’t miss anything.

But, no, before you ask, I do not own a wand, nor do I wear costumes to the movie openings.

In fact, while the movies are great fun, I always end up being a little disappointed because I am more a fan of the books, and the movies never quite measure up.

Nonetheless, the trailer looks awesome!  They always do. I can’t wait!
