The Harry Potter franchise will wrap its decade-long run in theaters this summer in grand fashion, judging by the epic trailer, which has just been released.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 will have it all, from monumental battles to fire-breathing dragons. The characters come full circle, too, as the trailer highlights two famous lines from the book: Harry’s “I never wanted any of you to die for me,” and Voldemort’s “Only I can live forever.”

The movie, whose stars include Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Ralph Fiennes and Alan Rickman, opens July 15 in the U.S. But it will have a grand U.K. premiere a week earlier in Trafalgar Square – the first-ever red-carpet movie event to take place in the large, public space.
