Sometimes when you ask, you really do receive. So you’re welcome for asking earlier for some new “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” footage, because today we are greeted with the opening scene from the upcoming flick.
In February we tried to guess what the opening scene of “Part 2” would be, and it turns out our speculation was correct. The clip kicks off with Harry standing over Dobby’s grave (there it is, for all of your missing it at the end of “Part 1”) and ends with the most badass delivery of a line we have ever seen Daniel Radcliffe deliver.
Intrigued yet? Read on!
Personally, I’m glad that that moment with Harry standing over Dobby’s grave was included, because it was a small detail that could have been ignored after “Part 1” wrapped up his funeral. It’s nice that director David Yates took into account the fans clamoring for more time to mourn Dobby, and that he not only included the scene in the film but also showed it ahead of time so we could all breathe a sigh of relief.
The scene between Harry and Ollivander, though, is where things really start getting interesting. Harry asks Ollivander what he knows about the Deathly Hallows and, after not giving the trio any more information than what they already heard from Xenophilius Lovegood, proceeds to lie to Harry and say he knows no more. But Harry already knew that Ollivander had told Voldemort about the Elder Wand, and he called the wandmaker out on it.
“He tortured me,” Ollivander said by way of explanation, and then added that he doubted Voldemort would have even been able to find it. Harry quickly rids him of that hope, though, because as we all well know, Voldemort has found the Elder Wand.
Cue the dramatic music and epic scene we have all been waiting for.
“He is after you, Mr. Potter,” Ollivander said. “If it’s true, what you say, and he has the Elder Wand, I’m afraid you really don’t stand a chance.”
Undaunted, Potter (and, really, Radcliffe) retorts with the perfect action hero one-liner: “Well I suppose I’ll have to kill him before he finds me then.”
Can it be July 15 already, please?
