Harry Potter - Harry Potter Fans Camp In The Rain For Premiere

Harry Potter fans camped out in London's Trafalgar Square ahead of tonight's premiere of 'The Deathly Hallows Part 2', the final movie in the hugely successful franchise. Thousands of Potter fans were unperturbed by heavy rainfall and began vying for positions to catch a glimpse of Daniel Radcliffe and co.
Both Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square are being transformed into 'Potter' style worlds for tonight's event, with the road between the two sites becoming 'Diagon Alley' - the high street on which Harry and his fellow wizards buy their magical paraphernalia. Speaking on Itv's Daybreak programme, actor Jason Icaacs who plays the evil Lucius Malfoy, paid tribute to the waiting fans, saying, "Frankly, I think they would turn out in earthquakes and tornadoes. That's the effect the Harry Potter stories have. A lot of people have tried to understand why but nobody really understands - it's magic". Various weather reports have signalled heavy rain showers for the remainder of Thursday (7th June 2011), but this is unlikely to put off Potter fanatics from tonight's show.
'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2' officially hits screens on 15th July 2011. The movie follows the boy-wizard as he seeks to finally destroy Lord Voldemort's remaining Horcruxes.
