The world premiere of the final installment in the Harry Potter franchise, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2, turned out to be the moment of cheers and tears. Amidst thousands of fans' cheers at Trafalgar Square in London, Harry Potter stars gave an emotional send off for the final installment of the Harry Potter franchise.
Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry Potter in the eight installments, thanked his co-stars, technicians, studio boss and fans for making it a big success. He said, "It may be the end of the films, the stories and the characters will live on because people will carry the story with them for the rest of their lives."
It was really an emotional moment for Harry Potter author JK Rowling, who has created eight stories for the Harry Potter series. She seemed to be overwhelmed by the huge response of the fans. She exclaimed, “You know what, maybe I"ll just write another one!" But she added next moment that she was just joking.
Meanwhile, both Emma Watson and Rupert Grint also thanked everyone involved in the production of Harry Potter series. Grint said, “I"m not good at goodbyes. I want to thank all of you. You"ve made the last 10 years the best half of my life."
The world premiere was attended by the supporting cast Alan Rickman, Robbie Coltrane, Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, Tom Felton, David Thewlis, Miriam Margolyes, all the officials of Warner Bros. Pictures, producers David Heyman, David Barron and director David Yates.
However, the event witnessed the presence of nearly 3,000 fans as Skycam helicopter hovered overhead, delivering aerial shots of the pre-Premiere mayhem with pictures, red carpet moments and interviews. An excited fan said, “I"ve been here for two nights now. Did I get soaking wet? Oh yes. Is it worth it? Definitely." Many fans were reduced to tears on the occasion.
