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).

    I think it's entirely appropriate that “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2" should premiere at Trafalgar Square. After all, it was in sky above Trafalgar Square that Albus Dumbledore first tangled with the Faceless Gruden – and nearly toppled the statue from the top of Nelson's Column!

    must….. go…. to premiere!!!! vital…..

  4. Stephen A. says:

    I hope it's not another horror movie. These things are getting scary – and not just for kiddies. The first part was also incredibly bleak and joyless. Let's hope there's some love and tenderness in the second one.

    • Harriet Bee says:

      Uh, Harry Potter is NOT about "love and tenderness." Helloooo? Is a Dementor composed of sweetness and cupcakes? Is a Boggart all about romantic massages to sore muscles and tender notes left on the fridge? Is Nagini fond of long walks in the spring rain and Sunday morning cold pizza in bed? I think not. That's why none of the books is called 'Harry Potter and the Sweet Caresses in a Florists Shop.'

      • Stephen A. says:

        Bottom line, the film was brooding, joyless and painful to watch. No one said they were supposed to be beautiful romps in the flowers. Give me a break!

      • Emily Treat says:

        You are awesome. Thank you for that message.

    • Stephie says:

      Have you read the books? Deathly Hallows is the most dark and depressing of the lot, but there is a ray of hope at the end. If you don't like how the movies are turning out, then take it up with J.K. Rowling, after all, it's her work that they are based on.

    • Linda says:

      Stephen…read book 7….

    • Michelle says:

      ummmm…have you not read the books?! It's supposed to be dark…Hello! All out battle between the forces of good and evil!

  5. Harriet Bee says:

    Thanks!!! I know I am awesome but it's cool to hear it from other people! You are the third person this week who has told me I am awesome. It really validates all the hard work!!!

  6. Alissa Herrera says:

    are they going to premiere in LA as well?

  7. Jakob says:

    I´m not from Denmark so I don´t know this Trafalgar Square.
    Is there a Cinema on the Square. Or how is it possible so see the movie there.
    I really want to see it in London..

    • Deryn says:

      Trafalgar square is in London. The viewing will be in Leicester Square but the red carpet bit can't be due to preparations for the Olympics.

  8. A. Muizz says:

  9. Biggs says:

    Anyone know what time the red carpet event is supposed to be?

  10. Mary Weasley says:

    Do you think there will be a special event in "The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter"?

  11. Harrypotterfan says:
