If you’re looking for something to pump you up for the next film the Harry Potter franchise, two new featurettes may have exactly what you need. The first installment of the Deathly Hallows adaptation opens in just over two weeks and the excitement is palpable. The franchise has been incredibly successful for Warner Bros., earning them over $5 billion in worldwide theatrical gross, almost $1 billion per movie. The last two installments will likely earn the company similar returns with the potential for even greater earnings as the franchise gains popularity.
Two new featurettes reveal more about the newest installments of the film that we have not yet seen from the various trailers and TV spots. The first featurette gives details into the story of the new film and the parts that the director and writers are going to focus on. The second featurette gives a summation of the horcruxes we have seen and the horcruxes that are yet to be destroyed. The two videos act as a great “catch-up” for anybody who hasn’t seen the previous films or read the books in a while.
It should be noted that the videos do contain some mild spoilers if you are completely unfamiliar with the 7th book. Watch away and let me know what about the movies you’re most curious or excited for.
