Entertainment Weekly’s annual Summer Movie Preview is hitting newsstands tomorrow, and featured on the cover is Harry Potter himself.

“Deathly Hallows: Part 2″ is one of the many summer films highlighted in this issue with an on-set report including quotes from Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger). There are also some minor spoilers about changes that have been made for the final battle.

Here’s a short preview from EW’s website (SPOILER ALERT!):

In this week’s cover story, we visit the stars and filmmakers on the set
and learn secrets of the final, climactic installment, which hits
theaters July 15. Such as? Well, for one thing, the final showdown
between Harry and evil Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) in a wand duel at
Hogwarts will be a little different from what author J.K. Rowling
described in her 2007 novel. This time, the chase leads through Hogwarts
and culminates in a very physical brawl as the two foes “apparate”
(i.e., teleport) toward and away from each other.

Entertainment Weekly goes on sale tomorrow, Friday, April 15th. We will post the scans from the feature once they are made available!

Avatar ImageAbbyWeasley says: First!Avatar ImageAbbyWeasley says: Anyway, that is so exciting I will have to read this article! How exciting, getting closer to part 2!Avatar Imagevikehi says: Anybody else notice the cover has been photoshopped to all get-out? Daniel Radcliffe's eyes have been turned green and the glasses frames have been made black (just the part around the eyes, not the nose bridge) and look at his clothes, they're from the beginning of the first film. A little effort would have been nice! The article's fine, but come on this is one of their biggest editions of the year! They should have a better cover! Avatar Imagechikitcorpuzvesterbaek says: @vikehi: noticed that, too.Avatar ImageXNymphadoraX says: I loved Emma's quote 'I get to get my Lara Croft on'. :D This film will probably be absolutely action packed, from the books we can tell that the final battle between Voldemort and Harry was crazy, but now they're changing it to make it even longer and Harry and Voldmort are moving about and apparating everywhere, it's going to be insane! I can't wait to see the epilogue too. I don't think Harry Potter will ever be forgotten after this.Avatar ImageCol2steps says: I can hear Hermione now: "YOU CAN'T APPARATE INSIDE HOGWARTS!!!" LOLAvatar ImageeiVega says: This is the LAST Entertainment Weekly magazine that can feature the upcoming Harry Potter movie. No more previews to look forward to! I wonder if Dan will ever grace their covers again with our favorite round spectacles.Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Hmmmm....sounds interesting. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. And haha I agree with Col2steps! You can't apparate inside Hogwarts!!!Avatar Imagechikitcorpuzvesterbaek says: well, if Hogwart's protective spells are down, then you would be able to appparate inside right?Avatar ImageLoki328 says: Fierce! That's all I have to say about the cover... :PAvatar ImageLoki328 says: Fierce! That's all I have to say about the cover... :PAvatar ImageLoki328 says: Fierce! That's all I have to say about the cover... :PAvatar ImageLoki328 says: Fierce! That's all I have to say about the cover... :PAvatar ImageLoki328 says: I apologize for the multiple comments.Avatar Imagevoldemort07 says: I don't really know about that, the protective charms protected hogwarts from outside, but even within Hogwarts, no one but the elves could apparate so it could not have been the protective charms, it was inherent to Hogwarts, probably from the founders, and I do not recall anyone apparating into Hogwarts in the book, if it were possible, you would have thought tons of people would have, but it is such a small thing (sorry Hermione) that I think we can give the movie makers a little leewayAvatar ImageFresca says: Seems strange to me. They could have had the final battle as it was writtten, in my opinion.(For what that's worth) I think the way JKR wrote it is great because it shows how bloody arrogant Voldemort is, and how Harry is more confident and ready to get the fight over and done with. If the last big hurrah turns into a chase scene it won't bring out the differences in their characters as strongly. I hope they keep the dialogue more or less unchanged. Maybe the poor castle is so wrecked by then the protective injunction against apparating and disapparating inside Hogwarts has been broken.Avatar ImageMariaKeis says: Can't wait till it hit's theaters in DK .. So exited !Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: DH1 was good. I think DH2 may be going the horrible way that HBP did. Ugh. Apparating in Hogwarts. Fresca ROAR is right. Apparating is running away. Both Harry and Voldemort had confidence in this battle. Voldemort's was arrogance and Harry's was faith.

" What?!?!?! 1. You can't apparate in Hogwarts 2. Why the h*** would you change it?!?!?! JKR is a genius! Do. Not. Change. Her. Material. Ugh It is what it is, at least its not TOO drastic.Avatar ImageMorganCrowley says: 1) The protective enchantments are GONE. There's nothing to stop anyone from Apparating into/through/around/out of Hogwarts at this time. 2) Rowling approved the changes. Nothing left to say, really. If DH2 fails, it's just as much on her as it is on Yates & Co.Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: coolAvatar ImageMiss.Weasley says: I can describe my vision of the coming film in 2 words- FREAKING AWESOME!Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: Thats weirdAvatar Imagebaru08 says: Great cover!!Avatar ImageEve13 says: I'm soooooo excited for the movie, I can't wait until July. I agree with Fresca, I wish they would keep the final Harry/Voldemort scene the way it was written.Avatar ImageXNymphadoraX says: Well @harry potter fan #1, JKR, as MorganCrowley said, has approved the changes to the book and is more than happy for it to be happening the way it is. It was probably to make it more exciting for the viewer, and to make it more tense, maybe, they had their reasons and JKR agrees. So quit slagging them off!Avatar ImageFarahey Sama Kabir says: Can't wait!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Not so sure about this...
