The new trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is finally out. View it here.
Are you a fan of Harry Potter? Did you read the books? Did you see the movies? Have you been to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando?
For those who don’t know, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is the last Harry Potter installment in J.K. Rowling’s classic line of books…books that have spawned renewed interest in magic, and, more importantly, the magic of reading.
The final movie based on The Deathly Hallows was split into two parts.
Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, and the whole literary cast ignited a fire under a generation, encouraging them to fall in love with light, love, and friendship, and the ability to overcome obstacles.
For you readers of this blog who don’t know, I am an aspiring author (with a really great agent!). I have written both fiction and non-fiction, and was inspired to the young adult genre through this magnificent set of Harry Potter books. I’ve read them all multiple times and always marvel at that certain quality…I can’t quite put a finger on it, but it’s there. It’s a mix of perfect ingredients that always produces something tasty, book after book.
That’s a rare gift, and Rowling had it.
It’s not often we find something so lasting and dear as the Harry Potter series. Heck, it’s not often that real people can inspire us, much less Harry, Ron, and Hermione and their fictional adventures.
But now the final installment of the movies is coming out on July 15, and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 trailer is just another reminder that even the best of things must come to an end.
But remember this — you can pick up those great books any time you wish. You can share the movies with friends and family as often as you’d like. And hey, if you can turn a child on to reading, who knows? They may just be the next great writer.
The first ingredient, however, is in inspiration. Take up a Harry Potter book and read it to a youngster. See where that takes the two of you.
And, enjoy Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. It should be quite a ride!
