It's almost over..and I see you wizard groupies sobbing all over the internets already. To further heighten your sensitivity to the inevitable conclusion and thusly, broadening our ability to identify those who we can pick on for being big baby kittens, I bring unto you....NEW PICTURES!! Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we see Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint charging into the breach once more as Harry, Hermione and Ron taking on Lord Voldermort, Lucius Malfoy, Bellatrix Lestrange and an army of black robed fiends set on world domination and the destruction of MUGGLEKIND!!! We've also got a picture of a battle damaged Neville Longbottom, which we've kept at its original size so all the ladies in the house can finally have their Neville computer wall paper. Enjoy!!
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2,” is the final adventure in the Harry Potter film series. The much-anticipated motion picture event is the second of two full-length parts.
In the epic finale, the battle between the good and evil forces of the wizarding world escalates into an all-out war. The stakes have never been higher and no one is safe. But it is Harry Potter who may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer to the climactic showdown with Lord Voldemort.
It all ends here.
