We bring to you the first look of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II, the final installment in the boy wizard series.

The boy wizard who has been taking the world by storm with his wizardry for over a decade now, has finally grown up, and is going to end it all this summer.

In the last of eight installments, Harry Potter, played by actor Daniel Radcliffe, ends his quest to find and destroy Lord Voldemort’s secret to immortality, alongside Rupert Grint and Emma Watson as his best friends — Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger respectively. Actor Ralph Fiennes plays ‘he who must not be named’ — Lord Voldemort, in the film.

What many may not not know is that during the Battle of Hogwarts, there’s a sequence where the statues come alive, which is not there in the novel of the same name by JK Rowling.

Also, some sequences have been shot with four different endings to maintain confidentiality.

The Harry Potter series has already achieved the distinction of being the top-grossing film franchise of all time, with a combined worldwide gross of $6.37 billion till date.

Directed by David Yates, the final outing is set to release worldwide on July 15 in 3D.
