Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 finally has a premiere date.
Harry Potter fans, we’ve just gotten a premiere date for the final installment in the film series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. It’s time to mark your calendars and stock up on tissues.
According to a Warner Bros. press release, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 will have its world premiere in London’s Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square July 7.
Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, reflected his city’s excitement in a released statement.
“For the last decade we’ve been gripped by the on-screen battle between Harry Potter and his arch enemy Lord Voldemort and this is one of the most eagerly awaited films in history. As befits a great British triumph, I can think of no better venue than the iconic surroundings of Trafalgar Square in which to stage the most spectacular of send offs for this dramatic finale.”
The final installment of the beloved series (which just received a BAFTA award) starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint is directed by David Yates, who directed the last three films, and will officially open across Ireland, the U.K. and the U.S. on July 15.
Between this and the royal wedding…anyone want to go live in London for a few months?
