Goodbye Harry Potter

Goodbye Harry Potter

I have to admit that I have not been able to watch any of the trailers for the final installment of the Harry Potter franchise. If I do, that means it’s over. It’s all over. There will be no more trailers for Harry Potter, ever ever again. It breaks my heart just to think about it. I don’t want it to end.

Harry Potter has been a part of my life for over a decade. I fell in love with The Boy Who Lived and it will be extremely hard letting him go. πŸ˜₯ I said goodbye to the anticipation and excitement of a new book in 2007. But back then I knew that there would still be 5 more movies. I didn’t have anything to worry about. Harry was still going to be very present and new in my life. Well, that time is now coming to an end and I am having trouble accepting it. This excitement I am feeling for the final movie is the last. Ever. I realize that I will be able to watch the movies and read the books anytime I want, but it’s just not the same. The unknown world of Harry is all going to be known. All the movie secrets will be spilled out onto the screen for the final time.

I have been to every single movie on opening day. And I am now thinking about not going on opening day for the last movie. What is wrong with me?! It will be AMAZING. But it will also be a very sad day. I figure if I wait to see it, I can make Harry stick around a little longer. I still haven’t made up my mind on watching the trailers, but I know that the end of the Harry Potter Movies is inevitable.

So really all I want to say is Goodbye Harry. It has been an amazing 11 years. I love you.

    I know how you feel, but I was actually very upset that I couldn’t get tickets for opening night (it sold out in a few hours!) so I had to settle for an 11:30 showing the next day. :unsure:

    Either way, I know I’m going to cry at the end of it. Which is why I’ve decided to drown my sorrows in butter beer cupcakes afterwards by having an HP-mourning party. πŸ˜›

    Hahah I almost thought I replied to this entry already (I read it a few days ago) when I saw the other Erica commenting above. I had to read the comment twice *facepalm* before I realized… I didn’t write that. πŸ˜€

    You can expect a post like this from me very soon. HP has been such a huge part of my life, I’ve grown up with those children. I’m glad to know I won’t be the only one mourning a loss. (Although I would very much like to go to that HP Mourning Butterbeer Cupcake Party!)

    I’m not even sure how many of the movies I’ve seen πŸ˜€ obviously I’m not a huge fan. My friend tried to get me to read the books for years, but I don’t think it’s really my thing *shrugs*

    I feel the same way although on Sunday I watched the trailers and now I can hardly wait to see the movie even tho it means the end of the movie series. But lets face it in this digital age we can watch them over and over and listen/read the books again and again.
