The Today Show has now aired the first official video of the final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, being printed and packed away in boxes. Released from US publishers Scholastic, you can watch this video of the books being printed in machines, and then sealed in shipping boxes with the words printed on the sides in bold DO NOT OPEN UNTIL JULY 21, 2007, via this link (click on the side under the video where it says “Harry Potter and the Mystery Question” -click the Launch button).

Also the network is asking a mystery question about Harry Potter each day, and intriguingly, Scholastic editor Arthur Levine is shown asking a question about the role of Pettigrew and his wizard debt in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” The video from the Today Show segment which shows the first books being printed can now be seen right here in our Video Galleries.
