“It all ends now.”
TRUER words have never been spoken. The final instalment of the Harry Potter saga, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2, is due to be released in the UK on July 15. It all comes to an eventful ending, drawing to a close the final days of Harry, Ron and Hermione, as they venture back to Hogwarts to find and destroy Voldemort’s final horcruxes.
Starting with the first installation in 2001, the seven released films have so far made a collective £3.3 billion worldwide, with author J.K. Rowling earning £1 million every three days from her Potter-empire. At the time of its release in November 2010, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 held the record for the biggest 3-day opening in ticket sales in the UK to date. It remains to be seen whether Part 2 will break this record. Meanwhile, it is more than certain that all movie-lovers are in for some graphically awing special effects that will make finding out whether Voldemort is finally defeated by Harry, all the more thrilling.
