The Potter Generation

The picture to the left is the post my son made on his blog today after seeing Harry Potter 7, Part 2, last night at midnight. And it's soooooooooooo true!

We arrived at the theater at 10:00pm  and the line was already around the building! I noticed that most of those in line were at least Derek's age (just graduated high school). I don't think that's just because it was too late for young kids to be out. I think it's because they are the Potter generation.

Many of those in line were dressed as their favorite character or had on HP t-shirts. As the stood in line, they talked about their many experiences over the years with HP and as we moved into the theater, they talked in groups and even entire sections about their expectations for how certain main events in the book would be played out in the movie. It was wonderful!

I loved being back in this environment one last time. I loved being with my son as we immersed ourselves in Harry's world one last time. I loved the movie! How about you?
