Heavy Hearts and Wet Eyes Greet the Countdown to the End of a Saga!

Next week, the final installment of the Harry Potter franchise will hit the screens around the world. But the countdown has already begun! It began way back!

And a sense of loss of the epic fantasy movie series has gripped the minds of the viewers and the actors alike.

Recently, actor Daniel Radcliffe confessed that the shoot for the final installment was a far cry from the usual merriment and jubilation, as there were lots of tears in the eye of co-stars and crew members.

All the stars of the Harry Potter series including Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, who have seen themselves grow up on its sets, have already made the decision to move on after the final adaptation of J. K. Rowling’s fantasy series unfolds across the celluloid. But the grief of saying goodbye has been grappling them ever since the production started. The adorable Emma was also seen in tears when the team gathered to bid farewell to the series at Trafalgar Square a few days ago.

Emma’s character of Hermione Granger, the neurotic wizard who has often been referred to as Mudblood by Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton), has seen many cataclysmic events all those years. And her bonding with Dan and Rupert has been strong, both on and off-screen. That might be the reason why she has been feeling so attached to the movie series.

Fan have already booked the option to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 as most of them would be interested to witness what else is in store for Hermione.

Besides Emma, Dan and Rupert have also been feeling the end of their journey as BFF at Hogwarts and all over the wizard world. Harry, in fact, admitted to sobbing after shooting the final scene.

Poor Dan! He would have wanted the franchise to never end.

The last movie would roll out on July 15, and that means you can get Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 after a few days. Be prepared for some never-seen-before wizardry delights. There is also the matter of bidding farewell to the series, after all!
