I gree that this should have waited for more scenes of the great moments of DH2. Although, these were great. Love seeing these videos since I can’t get ITV. Thanks for sharing Leaky. And who knows, they might do a remake with more great scenes!

Absolutely the #1 scene was when we all get a first glimpse of Hogwarts. All the magical fantasies of everyone came out and it had been a wonderful ride these 10 years. Now we wait for Pottermore…Jo wonderful gift to her fans!

I agree with most of the scenes up there, although, not really the order they are in. XD

i didn’t really understand why the arrival of the beauxbatons girls is number 16 of the greatest HP moments but apart from that I think it was soo cool to see all those great moments again!

A pity ITV didn’t wait to show this at Christmas, I can think of a few DH 2 moments that would rate highly…

I agree with others that they should have waited until a time when they could’ve included scenes from DH2. My favorite and believe would have been in the top 10 is when Harry tells Hermione and Ron why he has to go to the forest to confront Voldemort…that was heartbreaking…

I’m getting all chocked up :( If they had included hp7 part 2 this list would be completely different.

1. Deathly Hallows part 2: Mrs. Weasley saying “Not my daughter, you bitch.” to Bellatrix before giving her a heavy dose of WEASLEY WICKEDNESS!!!
