HARRY POTTER 7: Everyone is excited on Part 2 July 15, 2011!

I dont know why Im so excited about the finale of Harry Potter compare to the previous sequel. I know Im not really that of a big fan, read only three books of it (Sorcerers, Goblets and Deathly hollows) But my interest to see the finale has getting into my nerves lately.

The movie will be released on July 15, 2011, (days after my birthday). The poster below from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, featuring Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and Lord Voldemort / Tom Riddle (Ralph Fiennes).

Also in the finale were Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Alan Rickman, Helena Bonham Carter, Dave Legeno, David Thewlis, and Bill Nighy. The film was written by Steve Kloves, writer of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. David Yates, director of both Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince, directed both Part 1 and Part 2.
Some of the news I heard was, Molly and Arthur Weasley leaning over a dead Fred Weasley. Im sure Warner Bros are doing its best not to have everything on the web. And I dont want to hear anymore spoilers too. πŸ™‚

LETS WATCH THIS. Though I dont want the movie to end. Arghh. Just like Dobby I will miss the series.
