Perhaps you've heard that this week marks the premiere of the final movie in JK Rowling's immensely popular fantasy series Harry Potter, perhaps you live under a rock -- either way, these Harry Potter premiere lineup photographs will either excite you (if you're a fan) or horrify you (if you're not).

Vice Magazine's UK branch sent writer Jamie Lee Curtis Taete to check out the Harry Potter premiere lineup's 'refugee camps,' which featured passionate Potter fans from across the world, including people who travelled from places as far as Toledo, Ohio and Vancouver, Canada.

Many of those in the Harry Potter premiere lineup's had been camped out for as long as a week without tents, which were banned by Trafalgar Square security. When Vice went to conduct their interviews, it had been raining for hours, leaving many of the Harry Potter revellers drenched in garbage bags and raincoats. Despite the inclement weather, it's clear that the Potter fans were just happy to be apart of history, "It’s just this great sense of community," said Scott, a Potter fan from British Columbia. "There are people here from all around the world and I feel like I’ve known them my whole life. I’m hoping I can get JK Rowling to sign me so I can get it tattooed over."
