Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 - offical trailerWarner Bros just released the official feature-length trailer for the second part of the thrilling conclusion to the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. This is it. There will be no more.

Never been too big a fan of the series outside the first installment which was sheer magic, and Alfonzo Cuaron's Azkaban which handled the time-travel sequences brilliantly. I've watched them all, but have realized a steady decline in my interest level to the point of almost dreading having to sit through yet another CGI-infested, butt-numbing Harry Potter marathon. They almost lost me for good with Goblet of Fire, and let's not even mention the horribly fake serpent from Chamber of Secrets.

But if this new trailer is any indication of how they plan on closing the curtain on the series, count me in. Many had issue with separating the final chapter into two movies, mostly for selfish reasons, but Part 1 was clearly to lay the emotional groundwork for the thrilling finale. And the trailer gives us an enticing idea of what an explosive finale it will be.

The trailer, which  premiered during last night's ABC Family broadcast of Happy Gilmore, is a perfect example of how to draw audiences in while not spoiling the experience by revealing too much… unlike the recent trailer for The Help. For the most part, the CGI looks good, but why can they still not realistically depict that damn snake. We can make dragons look natural and real, but not snakes?

Part 2 is again directed by David Yates from a script by Steve Kloves. The end begins as Harry, Ron, and Hermione go back to Hogwarts to find and destroy Voldemort's final horcruxes, but when Voldemort finds out about their mission, the biggest battle begins and life as they know it will never be the same again.

Harry potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 is scheduled to hit theaters in 2D and 3D on July 15. Sorry, you have to wait, but in the meantime, you can watch the trailer below or head over to Apple.com to see it in the glory of HD:
