The highly anticipated Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (part 1) is being released in November 2010 and it is being billed as “the movie event of a generation”. The first full-length trailer has been released just in time to be shown before screenings of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and it looks incredible.
I’ve certainly “grown up” with the books and credit the series with finally getting me back into reading after a fifteen year hiatus. I wasn’t happy with the last film (see: Film Review: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) but I have high hopes for this one. I just hope they don’t completely butcher the book in the next film but I’m hoping that the actual boundaries posed by the series coming to an end will prevent that. I must say that I am pleasantly surprised that the whole film doesn’t look to be a whole series of scenes of Harry, Hermione and Ron camping in the woods because that was the only thing I remembered after reading the book the first time!
