Earlier this year producer David Heyman said Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 would be the shortest film in the franchise, and following an early test screening in April people mentioned the film was around 2 hours in length.
Now the Australian IMAX website has listed the runtime as 125 minutes, which is 2 hours and 5 minutes. This could change as editing is still taking place, but the final length will probably be around that mark.
Usually the final film in a franchise is the longest, but we’ve already had Part 1 which ran 2 hours 26 minutes, so in total Deathly Hallows should be around 4 and a half hours in total which is more than enough. When we left Harry in Part 1 we were around 500 pages in, so the film-makers have only got roughly 300 pages left to cover, most of which is action.
There is a chance Warner Bros. will release a new trailer with Green Lantern next week, but until then here’s the epic trailer we got in April:
In the film, once again directed by David Yates, Harry, Ron, and Hermione return to Hogwarts after months on the run in the wilderness with the aim of finding, and destroying, Voldemorts final horcruxes. Voldemort finds out about their mission and the biggest battle of their lives begins as the Dark Lord and his Death Eaters descend upon Hogwarts.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 will be released July 15th.
