I have been waiting sooooooo long for this movies to come out. The books were awsome and i can't wait. The last film is being split so that the first half of the seventh book will come out sooner. I hope they don't end it on a clif hanger. Can't wait till it opens in cinemas. WOOOO!!!

i cant wait to see this movie, they trailer was absolutely awesome
i hope he takes this and the seventh movies to a new level of amazing
the last 5 were not satisfactory they missed on little things that made the book and the setting astounding...they need to kick it up a notch or they will completely ruin harry potter for the people who have been reading the books since day one, like myself...make it better David everyone who LOVES harry potter is absolutely counting on you
