Question: Has anyone else experienced Harry Potter ticket buyer’s remorse? Last night, when I ordered my Deathly Hallows — Part 2 tickets for tonight online, I wasn’t elated, like someone who’s been waiting for (and writing about) this movie for months should be. I was sad. Suddenly, the end of my Harry Potter movie experience had a time stamp. At 6:30 p.m. tonight, I stop living in a world where I have the Harry Potter finale to look forward to. By 9 p.m., I’ll know how I felt — and if I cried — watching Harry take that walk. I actually debated whether I should hold off on seeing the film a little longer. But even though I read the book (in one day, locked in my apartment, because I was spoilerphobic), I’m afraid of hearing details of the movie, so I’m going.
How did you feel after you bought your ticket? If you’ve already seen the movie, was a part of you sad when it was over? Or does the wonder not end when the credits roll?
