Trailer Watch: Harry Potter & the Search for Purpose Once the Series Ends

Well, kids, the trailer for franchise finale - broken into two parts, natch - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows hit the intertubes today, and it's certainly not lacking for overblown epicness...but then, that's what we're looking for in a conclusion, right?

David Yates, who brought a (mostly) deft hand to the last two series entries, takes the reigns again for the final chapter(s), officially making him the director of half of the Potter films. But before we all start prematurely crying into our butterbeers, let's check out that Voldemort-heavy trailer:

I am beyond excited! Let the countdown begin!!!

As for what happens when the countdown ends, we'll always have the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I want to go to there.

I think it better be epic...and they better not scrimp on the siege of Hogwarts. And I don't know what I will look forward to after that. Retirement perhaps?

I am excited and I think the director has done an excellent job. Yeah, people may bitch about certain aspects of the film (the fire at the Weasley's, Dumbledore's death scene and lack of funeral) but I've LOVED the last few so I can't WAIT for this.

This looks utterly epic. I was hoping part two would be december 2010 though

I, too, hope the ending scenes are as powerful on screen as they were on the page...I thought the ending of the last movie was pretty anti-climactic, as opposed to the book. Hopefully getting the story in two films will allow ample time to cover important stuff in a satisfying way.

I thought Yates's "Order of the Phoenix" was easily one of the best of the movies, but I was a little let down by his "Half-Blood Prince." But I really like the visual style he brings to the series.
