I liked that trailer better than the last one’s you showed me.

Thank you so much for doing this episode! I enjoyed it a lot, and if I can stay away from watching the trailer and other clips until the premiere it sounds like the cinema experience will be a blast. (I kind of spoiled the whole cinema experience for myself for GoF, by watching everything I could get my hands on.) It’s a horribly long time away, the premiere, but I want the visual surprise element this time! :)

Love the trailer!!!

I’m almost positive that the outside of the cave was shot at the Cliffs of Moher on west coast of Ireland. Beautiful, amazing place and it looks just like that. It was also used as the Cliffs of Insanity in Priness Bride, LOL.

ok, i have a question. Where professore mcgonnigal and all the students are out, is that that one end scene after they see dumbledorel body? If so, why is neville, hermione and ron have no scracthes on them from the attacks? Is this an indication that the battle scene is cut from the movie? thank you in advamce for any thoughts on my questions.
