Should the 'Harry Potter' Finale Concern Parents?

Ad Feedback

The latest movie in the Harry Potter saga released in theatres Friday, but is it a movie Christian parents should be concerned about?

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" is the seventh film, and the first part in the finale for the Potter series.

Though the movies and books have drawn millions of fans, some have been leary of exposing kids to the elements of magic and evil they introduce.

CBN News spoke with Focus on the Family's "Plugged In" movie critic Bob Waliszewski about the message behind the latest Potter release, and other movies in theatres or on DVD that may be more family friendly.
