Harry Potter finale to get Trafalgar Square premiere.

HARRY POTTER and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 is to get its world premiere on Trafalgar Square, the first time the square has been used for such a major film event.

A big film deserves a big send-off, seems to be the message. Or, as wordy London Mayor Boris Johnson puts it:

"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."

The Trafalgar Square celebration does't include the actual screening of the new film, the last in the Potter series. Instead, the movie's stars will walk up Charing Cross Road to the cinemas of Leicester Square, along what promises to be one of the longest red carpets in history*.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 premieres on 7 July and goes on general release on 15 July.

* In fact that honour goes to the 26.5 kilometre carpet at the CamboFest Cambodia Film Festival, which opened earlier today.
