Updated: ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2’: The new trailer is not real

You’ll have to wait to see a trailer with new, official footage of Harry and Voldemort. The one released earlier today was fan-generated. (AP)

Update: The alleged trailer for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” that was posted here earlier has been yanked off YouTube. The reason? It’s not real.

Warner Bros. has issued a statement saying that the trailer was created by a fan using unauthorized footage:

“Warner Bros. is not pulling the ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2’ trailer. The alleged ‘trailer’ is not a trailer. It’s a fan-created piece that uses the studio’s intellectual property in an unauthorized way.”

A real trailer will undoubtedly be revealed in the near future.

The trailer for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” delivers everything one would expect from the first peek at the franchise’s finale: an epic, suspenseful score; lots of explosions; appropriately hyperbolic voice-over narration (“Warner Bros. Pictures presents the final chapter of the motion picture phenomenon that has enchanted the world”); a kiss shared by two central characters (Harry and Ginny, not Ron and Hermione — they’re not going to give away the money shot in the trailer!); and a whole load of Voldemort.

Watch it below.
