Yet another video featurette has come online this evening, this time a compilation of the cast and crew's thoughts on finishing the films as well as footage from the last day of filming. We see David Thewlis (Remus Lupin), Alan Rickman (Severus Snape), Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid) and more cast members wrap filming on set, and the video also includes some clips from Daniel Radcliffe's speech upon wrapping. You can watch the featurette here on YouTube or embedded below (you might want some tissues at the ready):

I am in tears, it hurts so much to say goodbye, this has been a passion of mine this horrible decade for me, one in which I lost my parents, have been sick, have many many worries, I am 60. Harry Potter and all has been a comfort and a love of mine, and I adore Dan, Emma, Rupert and give all of them my love, and support. Thanks to Jo who started it all. But, man, this makes me cry! I will have to take those boxes of tissues too, believe me.

I’m telling you my crying is no better than a mandrake… man it’s been 10 years or so.

I just want to tell you guys how lucky I feel to live in the age of Harry Potter, being able to grow up with it is something no other children born at other times can ever experience.

Be proud to be the Harry Potter generation, wands up guys!

Aaaah! Very touching. @SpinnersLibrarian, they may have been filming different scenes on the same day.

@SpinnersLibrarian, they definitely film more than one scene each day, there are several stages and sets being used each day, you could never get a film made if you didn’t.

This is a lovely touching video, really hope that we get this and more on the DVD when if finally comes out, it’s wonderful to see the cameraderie, and to see how special working on these films was to so many people.

Oh, how I’m going to miss them all. Don’t see how I’ll get through the movie, if just watching this makes me cry. As everyone else has said, must bring LOTS of tissues. Their hug at the end … oh my.

An amazing journey with an incredible group all together telling one of the great stories!

Made possible because they all worked so hard to stay true to the original material. In no small part because JKR set clear boundaries and guided them and worked with them.

this is one person who didn’t think she would cry and then proceeded to cry both times she watched the video. I need to make a note to pack tissue packets when I go to the midnight show. Between me and my friends most likely we will be crying our eyes out.

I’m just so sad for them all. 10 years of being a family, and they will always be a family. But it feels like that moment a kid moves out of the house. Something changes for them. So sad.
