There seems to be a problem with Melissa’s track… It keeps overlapping with the others (in the intro at least).

I think that they should split the Deathly Hollows movie at the moment when Greyback and the snatchers show up out side their tent. You will hear “Come out of there” It will leave you feeling scared for Harry, Ron & Hermione. I loved the Book “Harry a History” good work Melissa!!
