ShockYa’s Joe Belcastro was on the scene in Orlando, Florida for the press event held at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, celebrating the newly released “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” on Warner Bros. home video platform (DVD, Blu-Ray, Digital Download, Ultraviolet Digital Download). About twenty members from the cast & crew – including director David Yates, Rupert Grint, producers David Barron and David Heyman along with an assortment of other cast members – all descended upon the red carpeted spectacle this past weekend.

Below are red carpet snippets along with photos from the festive three-day event. And you’ll even notice a blooper or two as you’ll hear me addressing Rupert as his character “Ron” (even thought I kept training myself not to do that), along with Domhnall Weasley’s segment that only shows his torso (Sorry, man. People kept slamming into us, knocking the camera off. Most press are oblivious to their surroundings). When working these massive media circuses, one has – or should – be mindful to the people answering an infinite amount of the same questions. So with that, yours truly stuck with one or two interrogatories and let them rip. Here are some of the cast & crew’s ‘A-Ha’ moments while filming these last ten years (hint: allow some of the clips to fully download & buffer to avoid skipping):
