Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2: Sneak Peek

After spanning a whole decade and seven movies being produced in almost a yearly basis, the series based on J.K. Rowling's epic tale of the gifted boy wizard comes to an end with the eighth film, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2”. The seventh book, which finds Harry Potter and his trusty friends in all-out war against the evil Lord Voldemort for the salvation of both the non-magical and wizarding worlds, was split into two films. The first half, which came out November last year, has earned $285 million at the U.S. box office, $900 million worldwide. Well we are pretty sure you already know that the second film comes out July 14, 2011. Read on to catch the special content trailer (plus some comments from the filmmakers to boot) after the jump.

"The very last one's a big old epic, with lots of battles and dragons and goblins. It's going to be operatic. And then it's over," says director David Yates. "The decision to split this into two was purely a creative one. By doing two, there's more detail and more time to engage with the characters in the way that we do," says producer David Heyman. "It allows the audience time to bring themselves to it. The audience has the time to project their own feelings and engage with the characters."

Asked if he's feeling nostalgic, Yates says, "I don't think we ever took it for granted. We'd sometimes joke about what we're going to do when it's all over. We'll never have this amount of resources again. We're going to have to go back into the real world, after living in this bubble."

Actor Tom Felton has played Draco Malfoy, Harry's nemesis at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, since the first film. He and the core cast return for one last time. "One of the greatest gifts that Jo Rowling and the whole franchise has given (the actors) is that we can really end up making a kid's night just from saying hello," Felton says. "I was 12 when we started shooting; 13 when it came out. I'm 23 now. It's been a long journey. You don't see people growing up, not when you're there. It's only when you look back at the films. Look at Daniel! He was bloody tiny. My face was like a basketball. But those angelic features seem to have left me," he jokes.

Distributed by Warner Bros., “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” will be released in Philippine theatres and IMAX, in 3D and 2D, beginning July 14, 2011.
