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!

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!

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.

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.

well, if Hogwart’s protective spells are down, then you would be able to appparate inside right?

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 leeway

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.
