The final trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 has landed online and features enough explosions and quick cuts to make Michael Bay blush. That said, having never been a huge fan of the franchise (the books or the films) I have to say that this cut does a nice job of building up the epic nature of the entire Potter story to the point where I kind of wish I had partaken in all of the earlier installments so that I could be in line for the huge payoff that Deathly Hallows – Part 2 looks to deliver.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Directed by David Yates and starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Ralph Fiennes, and Tom Felton, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 opens in 3D theaters on July 15. To peruse all of our previous Potter coverage, click here.

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2,” is the final adventure in the Harry Potter film series. The much-anticipated motion picture event is the second of two full-length parts.
In the epic finale, the battle between the good and evil forces of the wizarding world escalates into an all-out war. The stakes have never been higher and no one is safe. But it is Harry Potter who may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer to the climactic showdown with Lord Voldemort.
It all ends here.
