Warner Brothers has announced a date for the world premiere of the final installment of the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise. The world premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 will take place at London’s Leicester Square theaters on July 7, 2011 [THR]:
The cast, filmmakers and guests attending the final Harry Potter premiere will start the evening on the red carpet in Trafalgar Square before strolling up the road to Leicester Square’s movie theaters to watch the film.
The Mayor of London Boris Johnson issued a statement on the plans: “For the last decade we’ve been gripped by the on-screen battle between Harry Potter and his arch enemy Lord Voldemort and this is one of the most eagerly awaited films in history. As befits a great British triumph, I can think of no better venue than the iconic surroundings of Trafalgar Square in which to stage the most spectacular of send offs for this dramatic finale”.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on July 15, 2011.
