Larry King's 'Harry Potter' special to air July 10

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2” hits theaters on July 15, marking the end of an era.

Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint will join CNN’s Larry King on July 10 for a special hour-long program, featuring interviews with the cast and never before seen footage of the soon-to-be-released film. (Do you have questions for Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Tom Felton, Matthew Lewis, director David Yates or producers David Heyman and David Barron? Ask away by uploading a 15-seconds-or-less iReport video by noon ET on July 8 and you could see the answer on!)

“I was so young, it’s difficult to remember much of my life before this thing happened to me,” Watson tells King. “I was still losing my baby teeth [while playing Hermione]."

Other cast members Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange) and Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid) will also stop by, while Weasley twins, James and Oliver Phelps, take viewers through Universal Studios Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida.

Catch the special on July 10 at 8 and 11 p.m. EST on CNN.

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, which, like CNN, is a Time Warner Company.

    I can't wait to see the same man who interviewed the esteemed Merlin sleep his way through someone who born this millennia.

    Is it true that Ron catches Neville eating Hermione out. Ron walks in to Hagrids crib and the Nevster is feasting on the bearded clam.

    I can't wait to see the movie. It's sad that the series is ending 🙁
    It is true that the movies have gotten darker, but more has been happening. The more there is the bigger the shadow, right?

    i saw larry king in a bath house in san fran in the early eighties. he had a "thing" for young latino or greek men. i watched him accept a total of approx40-45 inches of man meat. every one of these young men were told to deposit their baby batter on his rear end and he paid the last man what looked like close to a grand to remove the stickiness with his tongue!!! now ask me about keanu, the german sheppard, and the bear shaped bottle of honey. its a good story.

    Not a big fan of HP–I prefer comedies, but HP just kept getting darker and darker–but the CG and SFX are impressive; I'll keep an eye out. ^.~

      The series got darker because the world they were in got darker. A lot of people think that the story got too "old" for kids stories, but in actuality, the story grew up with the characters. It's only my opinion, but I loved how the story progressed.
