'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2' clips: Watch here!
Thousands of lucky Brits are celebrating the world premiere of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 in London on Thursday, but stateside fans of the boy wizard still have over a week to go before the big release. Luckily, Warner Bros. has come to the rescue with six full minutes of juicy teaser clips from the final installment of the Potter franchise. Warning: SPOILERS ABOUND!
Watch below as Harry and friends continue on their hunt for Voldemort’s horcruxes, starting with the break-in to Bellatrix Lestrange’s heavily cursed vault in Gringotts bank. We then see Harry, Hermione, and Ron arguing over Harry’s realization that they have to return to Hogwarts in order to destroy one of Voldemort’s horcruxes. Hermione objects, but Harry responds with an increasingly accurate statement: “Hermione, when have any of our plans actually worked?”
Flash forward to the moment this fan has been waiting for: Alan Rickman’s delightfully sinister Severus Snape performing his duties as Hogwarts’ newest headmaster. All goes well for our ambiguously villainous villain until a seemingly confident Harry shows up to finally confront his tormenter. Meanwhile, Hermione and Ron venture back to the Chamber of Secrets to destroy the horcrux obtained from Bellatrix’s vault, and the increasingly heroic Neville Longbottom confronts a mob of Voldemort’s Death Eaters.
Next up is a showdown in the Room of Requirement, where Draco Malfoy and his lovely pals walk in on Harry holding yet another one of Voldemort’s horcruxes. Nothing on how that particular situation is resolved, but the next clip jumps to the same room being destroyed in a fiery blaze as our heroes rush to escape.
Last but certainly not least, Harry finally faces Voldemort and his Death Eaters in the woods. “Come to die,” the Dark Lord teases. The clip ends with Voldemort shouting “avada kedavra,” also known as the killing curse, at our hero as a white light expels from his wand.
