It’s official: The world premiere of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2,” the final film in the epic wizarding saga, will apparate in London on July 7, a little more than a week before the film opens in theaters July 15.
Although premieres for previous films in the series had been held in London’s Leicester Square, the red carpet for the big finale will unfurl in the city’s Trafalgar Square.
You can expect thousands of muggles to gather to see Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, the recently Oscar-nominated Helena Bonham Carter and more as they make their way into the theater to watch Harry Potter face off against the evil Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes).
