Farewell To Harry Potter (Video w/ Cast and Crew)

I don't know about you guys, but I cannot believe this whole Harry Potter journey is almost over. When I was in seventh grade, my mom mum bought me a copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Back then, they only came in those giant hardbacks that cost a million dollars. She told me they were the latest trend and that I'd really like it. Being the rebellious preteen I was, I didn't read it until about 6 months later. Freakin' fell in love with the story, the characters, the world, everything. I think I even drooled in my book a little, too. My mum continued to buy me the next installment of each Harry Potter until I turned 16 and couldn't wait for her to get off work and make time go to the bookstore and pick it up for me. I had to go to Barnes and Noble and buy them at midnight on the release days. Remember those midnight release parties? The games? The costumes? Having to get there ASAP to grab a number or else you'd have to wait till 2am to get your copy? Oh and staying up the ENTIRE night to finish it? SOOOO much fun!

The books turned into movies and now, I can't even believe the journey is coming to an end. Nothing, absolutely NOTHING, can nor will ever compare to Harry Potter. I'm sorry, but it's true.

And in case you've missed seeing the speeches at the World Premier and watching the cast and crew say their goodbyes, here's your chance. I posted the youtube videos below.

Oh and if you don't shed at least ONE tear, then you don't understand the magic. Enjoy!

  2. What an amazing tribute to Harry Potter to have both the actors, producers and J.K. herself speak to the fans. I bawled watching the clips and would've been a mess if I'd actually been there.

    Can't wait to see the movies next week!

    Thats so true. The more books I read, the more I realise it.

    Man, those are some great memories. It's funny how many of us share those experiences and feelings, even though we are total strangers, and how much a part of so many summers they were. I am sure going to miss those days, those books, that wonderful feeling of anticipation, speculation, and finally, satisfaction (at least until the latest volume was consumed and discussed to death!). Thanks for articulating it so well, Lena, and for bringing the magic to life again.
