A correspondent for attended the August 11 Japanese countdown event for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in Tokyo. Though no new footage was aired, a brief message from Daniel Radcliffe and costars Rupert Grint and Emma Watson was shown, from the set of the final films. More on that can be read below.

We then watched three clips of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint - on set in Dumbledore's office - greeting the Japanese fans with a very British "konnichiwa," and then all three of them essentially saying something along the lines of “we feel very privileged to have been a part of one of the greatest fantasy franchises for the past 10 years and we have put a lot of effort into making the final film(s) the best that they can be.” All three of them ended their segments with “now please enjoy this new footage.”

Fans who attended the event also got a note from Daniel about the countdown; it had this to say (translated from Japanese):

To the Japanese fans,

On behalf of all the cast members, filmmakers and staff who have worked on the Harry Potter movie series, I’d like to thank every one of you for your great support over the past decade.

I’m excited that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 will be released on November 19th in Japan this year followed by Part 2 in summer of 2011.

We hope you will come see them in cinema and experience the great adventure, action, and emotional journey with us.

Again, thank you so much for your support!

All the best,
Daniel Radcliffe
