The Plot: As Harry Potter’s (Radcliffe) final battle with the evil Lord Voldermort (Finnes) looms, it’s the boy wizard’s friends that could pay the ultimate price in the final movie in the iconic book series.

The Final Word: There is nothing I can write hear that you probably don’t already know. This is the last “Harry Potter” movie and it comes to Cineplexes almost a full decade after the original. Fans of the boy wizard are going to see this no matter what, meaning it could be in 2D, 3D or in good old fashioned black-and-white and it wouldn’t make a difference to the bottom line; the movie has insane drawing power.

Starring (voices): Jim Cummings, Craig Ferguson, Tom Kenny, Travis Oates, 
Bud Luckey,Jack Boulter, Kristen Anderson-Lopez, 
Wyatt Hall, Huell Howser & John Cleese
Directed by Stephen J. Anderson & Don Hall for distribution by Disney

The Plot: Return to the Hundred Acre Woods with Winnie The Pooh and all of his friends as they go on a journey to save their friend Christopher Robin.

The Final Word: Winnie The Pooh is arguably one of the most cherished children’s characters of all time and many have missed the presence of the pudgy little bear in the mainstream media. Disney has now taken five of the classic Pooh stories from creator A.A. Milne and crafted them into a new motion picture. Although Disney also has to know that going up again “Harry Potter” is a no-win situation and to place it there must mean they don’t expect any record breaking openings, but they do get to introduce Pooh Bear and all his Hundred Acre Woods friends to a brand new generation, which may be just as profitable.

Previewed next week: Captain America: The First Avenger & Friends With Benefits
