It’s okay. Let it out. There’s nothing wrong with crying, especially if you’ve just watched the first official trailer for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2,” which was released late last night.
Yes, after ten excellent years, the epic story of the Boy Who Lived comes to its natural conclusion with this summer’s second half of “Deathly Hallows.” The trailer is filled with magical moments designed to delight and dismay, bringing about no small amount of bittersweet emotions from the series’ many fans — and that’s exactly how Daniel Radcliffe wants it.
We caught up with Dan a few weeks back while he was promoting his turn on Broadway’s “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” and he told us he was happy to hear that the “Potter” fans have been crying in response to “Deathly Hallows” footage and test screenings.
“Good! Good!” he exclaimed with a laugh, saying that, yes, he does want you to cry. “Yes, it’s the last one, for god’s sake — if we don’t get them now, we won’t get another chance!”
We’re pretty sure he means that in the best way possible — after all, with a decade’s worth of work under his belt, Radcliffe and his colleagues are very much hoping you’ll join them on this turbulent emotional roller coaster ride as “Potter” comes to an end.
“I’m excited to see it,” he said of his own anticipation for the film. “I think it’ll be very good. It just seems like eons ago that I finished it, so it’s bizarre.”
Do you agree with Dan? Do you hope “Deathly Hallows” moves you to tears? Did the trailer have an emotional impact on you? Let us know in the comments section and on Twitter!
