Harry Potter anticipation grows

Whether you are a Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Slytherin, or Gryffindor, Harry Potter fans will unite on November 19, 2010, to celebrate the return of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series characters. It is their last year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the epic finale movie, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part I.”

“J.K. Rowling is an amazing author and I really cannot wrap my head around the intensity of the plots. I love the thought of being able to use magic and HP creates a new world for me to enter whenever I want to get away from reality,” comments junior Madelyn Sese.

Fans from across the world have been anticipating the release of the first part of the film, since “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”was released last year. Town Square had 12 different theaters open within a half hour after midnight.

“To be honest I am scared to see the new movie: it’s a painful reminder that in a mere 6 months the magic will be over and I’ll have nothing new to look forward to, however I am extremely excited to see how the director handles the silver doe/horcrux scene,” exclaims junior Corey Tyndall.

In the film, Harry Potter and his friends try to find the remaining Horcruxes, defeat Voldemort, uncover the true motivations of Severus Snape, and pursue love emotions, all while trying to stay alive.

Theaters across the country will be flooded full of “muggles” hours before the midnight premiere. The SWCTA National Honor Society will be going as a group next Wednesday to watch the movie after the “rush” of fans has subsided.
