Just In Case You Needed to Cry Over Harry Potter Again …

I am an absolute mess over this Harry Potter thing. I was tearing up looking through all the photos of the premiere last night, but then I saw this video, and I had a little baby sobfest. Here, let me break down this video for you so we can see if we get emotional over the same precious things/so you can make fun of me more specifically:

0:28 – Daniel Radcliffe warms me up, gets me feeling a little teary-eyed. It’s ok though, I’m fine, I got this.

1:01 – Did you see where Daniel said that he got lucky and Emma Watson starts shaking her pretty little head? I love how much these kids love each other.

1:29 – Anyone who ever shipped Harry and Hermione is wrong. But isn’t Daniel Radcliffe the most precious little man?

2:16 – This is where I couldn’t hold it anymore and started my ugly, noisy crying and startled the dogs. This part went on for several minutes.

4:41 – “What you’ve done for ginger people …” Amen, Rupert. Amen.

5:16 – I don’t care how sad you are, JK Rowling, you never, ever joke about writing another Harry Potter. You never do that. Don’t you say those words unless you mean them.

8:42 – “The stories we love best do live in us forever, so whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.” I completely lost it here, and I’m doing it again right now.

We need a support group for this movie, I’m pretty sure. You guys plan it in the comments, I’m going to have to go cry in the fetal position for a while.

  • I was ten or eleven when the first book came out. Harry Potter has been a part of my life since I was the protagonist’s age.

    I teared up a bit while reading this post. Well done.

  • Real talk? I watched the whole thing at work (instead of doing any work) and cried, watched it again at home and cried, then just read your post and cried again at the JKR quote at the end.

  • Emma’s part was very Wizard of Oz, when Dorothy says goodbye to the Tin Man. (I mean this in the weepiest way.)

  • I watched this live yesterday online, and it was definitely a weepy experience, and I mean that in a good way. The whole thing was beautiful and exciting and filled with energy. Everyone knew this was it. It is the end of an era, and I don’t know when we’re going to get anything close to Harry Potter again. I’m the same age as Emma, so I grew up with with this series, too. HP is a big staple in a lot of people’s childhoods.

    Anyway, the speeches were very touching, and I love how well everyone has turned out. It’s not often that you get such a good cast all around. Daniel Radcliffe is my favorite. His interviews are the best:)

    And is it just me or is JK Rowling one of the most attractive authors ever?

    Yes @8:42 was perfect! I bet the majority of people watching were crying. That was beautiful. She said the perfect thing.

  • Omg I’m a mess. I can’t stop crying, so so sweet. That part at the end was too much for me. I just sent this too my sister so she can watch it and call me and we can cry together.
