It’s been a long time coming, but it has finally arrived – the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movie trailer!

I must admit, when I first heard that the studio was going to split the movie into two separate films, I had a mixture of emotions. I was upset that it would mean no resolution and more of a cash grab for the studio, but also happy that it would mean about another two hours of Harry Potter goodness.

The final movies (SPOILER ALERT FOR THE PREVIOUS SIX MOVIES) take place during what was supposed to be Harry’s last year at Hogwarts. However, Harry, Ron and Hermoine are on the run to destroy the magical devices, known as Horcruxes, that tether Lord Voldemort to life. Only when all seven magical objects are destroyed, can Harry battle Voldemort for the final time. But, with Dumbledore dead and no leads, tensions run high between the trio as they fight to remain hidden and find the Horcruxes.

Now, I could write out the entire plot, but I wouldn’t want to spoil anything to those who have not read the books. Yes, shocking I know, but there are people out there who have not read the books and only know the story through the movies.

The first part of the movie is set to be released in November 2010, with the final movie being released in July of 2011. Frankly, they cannot come soon enough.

Now, enough stalling – I know what you all came here to see.

So go ahead, and check out the 2:30 movie trailer below the jump!
