The final Harry Potter film is set to be released in theaters this week. In anticipation for the release of The Deathly Hallows Part 2, the stars of the film — Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, author J.K. Rowling, and other cast members — stepped out at the United Kingdom premiere of the movie this past Thursday. As per usual, the dedicated fan base of the film were ecstatic to see the film stars, especially since the upcoming film is the last movie before they likely move on from the Harry Potter franchise. Radcliffe, for example, was only able to stay in London for just over a day because he had to fly back to New York City in order to work on his Broadway show.

According to the BBC, over 3,000 fans of the book and film camped out at London’s Trafalgar Square in order to get up-close-and-personal with their idols. Of note at the award show, Emma Watson sported her short hair that she cut years back, but went back to a light brunette after she went for a dark blonde at the MTV Movie Awards last month. She wore a very puffy gray Oscar de la Renta ball gown. Many critics say they loved her dress. What they weren’t a big fan of, however, was what J.K Rowling decided to wear — Oscar de la Renta, like Watson. But many have been criticizing the dress as looking like she is wearing a green tablecloth with pink flowers on it rather than a proper dress for the final world premiere of one of the biggest movie franchises in recent memory.
