P! News at the Harry Potter Opening [Video]

We waited with the diehard Harry Potter fanatics for the opening of the last film in the series.

Just as night fell on Branford – a full moon hanging in the sky – Harry Potter fans lined the sidewalks of the Regal Cinemas 12 to wait for the opening of the last film in the series.

Hundreds of costume-clad fans from all over the area sipped energy drinks to stay awake as they anticipated the midnight debut of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.

Many came bearing tissues – sad to know that this will be the last film in the series – and others were riding high on being part of such a momentous occasion.

The midnight showing was sold out well in advance of July 15 but tickets for the 3 a.m. show were still on sale as fans began to filter into their seats for the opening.

P! News, with host Greg Nobile, had a chance to find out what makes a real Harry Potter fan so don't miss our footage!

Oh my, Greg is so funny. "Are those your real glasses?"

I don't know what I like better - Greg's use of the wand as a sort of Bob Barker microphone or the guy in the back dressed as Sirius Black's wanted poster. That's dedication.
