Warner Bros. today issued a press release announcing that London's Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square will both be the locations of the World Premiere of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2". WB also announced a date for the premiere: 7th July 2011.

London's Trafalgar Square has not hosted a red carpet film premiere before and WB writes

The cast, filmmakers and guests attending the final Harry Potter premiere will begin the night on the red carpet in Trafalgar Square with the world’s media in attendance.  Special areas will be reserved within the square for fans and competition winners from all over the world to see the actors and creators of some of the most beloved characters of all time.  Cast and guests will then make their way to Leicester Square’s cinemas to watch the film.

 The Mayor of London Boris Johnson is also quoted as saying:

For the last decade we've been gripped by the on-screen battle between Harry Potter and his arch enemy Lord Voldemort and this is one of the most eagerly awaited films in history. As befits a great British triumph, I can think of no better venue than the iconic surroundings of Trafalgar Square in which to stage the most spectacular of send offs for this dramatic finale

A quote from Josh Berger, President and Managing Director of Warner Bros. Pictures UK adds:

We are delighted that our plans for the finale of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will take place in such a spectacular venue.  We pride ourselves on the creativity of our premieres and the space within Trafalgar Square will lend itself to being a magical experience for both guests and fans.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" is released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 15th July 2011.
