Go HPAvatar ImagegriffithAMPS says: Harry Potter has a special place in my home, it was the first book series I started reading to my son. I agree with Jerry Buickheimer, I don't think it will ever completely end. Seven novels, eight movies, but it will keep going.Avatar Imagesilverkacy says: Twilight director likes HP?Avatar ImageDavidTheUnready says: Have a weekend of all the potter dvds planned out with friends staying over before going to the last one, well not quite the last one wasn't there talk of another movie special with all the behind the scene stuff from the last ten years? Nice if they finally get the recognition they deserve from Oscar this time!Avatar ImageVane-Ale says: It really made me laugh when Russel Brand was talking about the "Radcliffe lad" and "the ginger"... ha ha ha ha he's so funny! Really nice video!!!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: HAH! very cute stuff...Avatar Imagekbicprez says: Watching this video has left me very nostalgic. I tried to deny it before, but I’m feeling very sad about the end of the films. Harry Potter has been an amazing ride for me. I AM IN AWE OF JK ROWLING - so gifted and yet so unassuming. The HP books are classic and will be read right alongside Dickens and Austen’s novels centuries from now! I’ve been critical of the films in the past, but this series has really been an amazing accomplishment. WB, David Heyman and David Barron, Stuart Craig, Steve Kloves, the British acting community (it is the VERY BEST in the world), and the crew – each and everyone of them deserves high praise. I also must thank WB for allowing HP to be filmed in the UK and with British actors. Seems like it would have been the obvious choice, but I doubt it was for a big Hollywood studio. I have so many precious memories from the films. As much as I loved DH1 and am excited about DH2, I expect Prisoner of Azkaban will always be my favorite HP film. IMO, Alfonso Cuaron’s direction has been unequaled. Alan Rickman brought Snape to life as I believe no one else could have. Kenneth Branagh’s Lockhart was PERFECT, Tom Felton was WONDERFUL, and I can’t imagine anyone but Evanna Lynch as Luna. Finally, I can’t say enough about Dan, Rupert, and Emma. They have become fine young adults as well as fine young actors. HP has been an unforgettable experience and I’m very excited about Pottermore! THANK YOU JK Rowling!!! I’m going to have a good cry now.Avatar ImageFelipe_Q says: Pretty cool :-) So many HP fans! Horray for Harry! :-DAvatar Imagecrikeyhunter says: Ditto to what KB said............ :)Avatar Imagecrikeyhunter says: Ditto to what KB said............ :)Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: Juts goes to show you how everyone loved Harry Potter.

Thank you J.K Rowling. :3Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: I just like J.K. Rowling to know (although she probably isn't reading this . . .) that you did a beautiful job and that you touched everyone's heart, famous or not, you made everyone fall in love with that story you made up, and it's quite exciting to see what you wrote on screen as a movie, but about a week from now, it'll all be over. . . . D;Avatar Imagehandhrfan18 says: loved it! soo many harry potter fans! i loved it! i laughed at russell brand at what he had to say lolzz XDAvatar Imagejoeys_mommy says: Thats so cool!
