Tom Felton Headlines "Disappointing" Harry Potter Comic-Con Panel
Posted 07.26.10 by Ryan
Warner Bros. teased a panel for the upcoming two-part finale Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows declaring it would be "a program created just for Comic-Con fans ... don't miss it!" Those that attended, according to the LA Times, ended up a little disappointed when the panel revealed mostly old footage and Tom Felton as the lone representative of the cast.
The problem wasn't with Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in the movies and was making his Comic-Con debut. Felton received "thunderous applause" when he walked onstage after the panel opened with a trailer from the upcoming two-part finale. However, he was interviewed for only about 10 minutes ... and that was that. No additional stars or footage. The audience reportedly "appeared to collectively deflate."
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One opens November 19, while Part Two opens next July.
