Warner Bros. has announced that the London premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 will take place on Thursday, July 7 in both Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square.
“This will be the first red carpet film premiere event in Trafalgar Square, the instantly recognisable landmark providing the iconic backdrop for one of the biggest film premieres to ever take place in the capital.”
The cast and crew will first appear at Trafalgar Square and then make their way to Leicester Square where they’ll see the film. According to London mayor Boris Johnson:
“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.”
Deathly Hallows – Part 2 is set to hit theaters July 15. It’s surprising they announced the premiere this early!
