The red carpet ceremony of the last Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 takes place in London today. It has already been announced months ago that the "usual" Leicester Square location would be too small for the upcoming event so the world premiere has been relocated to Trafalgar Square. Fans camp out on Trafalgar, many of them have been there for several days to get the best places for observing the ceremony. After the world premiere in London today, the film will be on worldwide distribution as of next week. Since the publication of the first Harry Potter book in 1997, the wizard-story written by J.K. Rowling has been an outstanding success with more than 400 million copies sold worldwide.
