I have been a sucker for the recent marketing campaign by Warner Bros. that plays to the nostalgia of fans of the series. The first Harry Potter book was released when I was 11 years old and just beginning to become conscious about art and how it is made and J.K. Rowlings books and the film adaptations were a huge part of my childhood and adult life so I am definitely susceptible to these nostalgia trips. I know many Film Misery readers are just as excited for the eighth and final movie as I am, so I thought it would be worth posting this featurette via Rope of Silicon.
After opening with the first screen test of the now very recognizable Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint the featurette continues with the typical interviews with the cast and crew. While they are speaking we see cross-cut images from every movie in the franchise and it only serves to increase my excitement for the finale.
Check it out below and definitely share your thoughts in the comments. On a side note Phil and I will be doing a Harry Potter retrospective on the podcast where we go back and revisit every individual movie before reviewing the newest addition. Stay tuned for that in early July.
