Nagini from Harry Potter

Parseltongue, the language of snakes, is rarely spoken and even more rarely heard. It is a very uncommon skill, with Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort being the most well-known Parselmouths in the wizarding world. Warner Bros has launched a nifty new viral website (via Hero Complex) for Deathly Hallows: Part 2 that will translate text into Parseltongue, the whispering snake language we've heard throughout the Harry Potter movies. Voldemort speaks to Nagini in Parseltongue and it's used to get into the Chamber of Secrets. Just a fun way to delve deeper into the Harry Potter world if you've already perfected spell pronunciations.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is again directed by British filmmaker David Yates, of Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince previously. The script was also written again by Steve Kloves, of Sorcerer's Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, Goblet of Fire, and also Half-Blood Prince, but not Order of the Phoenix. This is based on J.K. Rowling's very popular series of books which have already concluded. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 arrives in theaters in 3D starting on July 15th this summer!

What, no way? It says the same Parseltongue phrase over and over? That's... a bit ridiculous. I thought it was different!

I think it just cycles through sayings that have been in the movies.
