After spending ten years with someone, it’s normal to get attached. Yes, even if that person is a fictional character.

The first Harry Potter movie came out in 2001. Now the last film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two, is finally here. It’s time for audiences to say goodbye to their favorite wizard.

But some might not be ready to let go of Harry Potter just yet. Hear Devan and Mason discuss the final film.

第一部哈利波特系列电影在 2001 年上映。现在该系列最后一部电影《哈利·波特与死亡圣器(下)》终于上映了。如今,已经到了观众对他们最喜欢的巫师说再见的时候了。


1. Listen and Read - Listen to the audio and read the dialog at the same time.

Mason:  Are you living a less fulfilling life now that you know there’s no more Harry Potter to look forward to?

Devan:  Yes. But I’m also…I went and saw the last film recently, and I haven’t read all the books. I stopped after the fifth book. But I’ve been watching the movies still.

Mason:  Yeah.

Devan:  And so I came in genuinely not knowing what to expect. And I don’t want to give anything away for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet, but I have to say, I was a little let down. I was a little disappointed.

Mason:  Oh yeah? Do you think there’s any way that after you’ve been on a journey like that for so long, can you ever be happy with the way that ends?

Devan:  With a series that builds up like that, you’re going to lose some steam, especially because things got so epic around the fourth or fifth film. That was kind of the peak, I felt. From there it’s kind of about wrapping it up, tying it together, bringing it to a conclusion. But I guess I was just expecting one last really riveting storyline, and it felt more like they kinda like rushed to conclude it.

Mason:  That’s interesting. I mean, I thought that I liked that it became a very kind of personal, emotional story towards the end. But definitely it’s not the epic conclusion. Even so, I mean, I find it’s really hard to not feel a sense of disappointment. There’s just so many things you want once you’ve had a relationship with something like that for so long that you’re just glad that they gave you something.

Devan:  That’s true.

Mason:  That’s what fan fiction is for.

Devan:  That’s right.

Mason:  You just get on the internet, Harry Potter is still going.

Devan:  I think I’m gonna rewrite the story to end the way I want it to.

Devan and Mason both recently saw the final Harry Potter movie. Devan hadn’t read the final book, so she didn’t know what to expect from the film. She was a little disappointed. She expected the end to be more dramatic, and she thought it spent too much time wrapping things up.

Mason disagrees. He enjoyed the last film. He liked how personal it was. He also thinks it’s natural to feel disappointed when something you love comes to an end.

Have you ever been disappointed by the way something ended? What did you think about the final Harry Potter movie?

Harry Potter has been a big part of English, baby! over the years as well. Revisit these lessons from the past.

I love Harry Potter, and I never was disappointed in any part. Of course it’s sad when something that was a part of your life ends, but nevertheless we can watch it again and again. Harry Potter is the kind of movies that never bores you.

And, by the way, I was rewatching this movie the day before yesterday :)

I have already been kind of sad with the end of soap opera, a serie and a movie too. I think it is normal when you spend most part of your life watching them because they starting being part of your life as friends!

I have never watched or read Hrry Potter. I prefer the Twilight Saga!
