It’s the beginning of the end for Harry Potter and friends.
‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’, the seventh and penultimate film in the series, premieres in London’s Leicester Square tonight.
Fans worldwide have been eagerly anticipating this latest installment in the adventures of the bespectacled boy wizard.
One fan travelled from Australia to catch a glimpse of lead actor Daniel Radcliffe.
“I think a lot of people have come now, there’s only two more films left, and then that’s it. It’s goodbye to Harry, so we’re all here to give him a fond farewell I think,” she said.
The film tells the story of Harry’s quest to track down and destroy the secret to the evil Voldemort’s immortality.
It hits cinemas across Europe later this month.
The eighth and final chapter in the series will be released next July.
