Coming Soon – Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Part 1

Harry Potter Deathly Hallows 1 Sheet

Ok, I’ll admit it, over the past couple of years the Potter film franchise has left me a little jaded. Having adored “Prisoner of Azkaban” and been a little underwhelmed by “Goblet of Fire”, Junior Miss Moviegrrl’s copy of “Order of the Phoenix” has remained unwatched by the adults here at Moviegrrl Towers.

However, the trailer for Deathly Hallows Part One prodded the Potter-love back into life, and over the past few weeks we’ve been revisiting all the films in readiness for the release of Deathly Hallows part one on the 19th November.

Warner Brothers have now released the official synopsis, part one of two, along with new images, all below the cut – click to embiggen…

Hagrid & Harry

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” the seventh and final adventure in the Harry Potter film series, is a much-anticipated motion picture event to be told in two full-length parts.

Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction—the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.

Death Eaters
Meanwhile, the wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort’s Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry Potter. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort…alive.

Harry’s only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale—the legend of the Deathly Hallows. And if the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks.

Xenophilius Lovegood
Little does Harry know that his future has already been decided by his past when, on that fateful day, he became “the Boy Who Lived.” No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” is directed by David Yates, who also helmed the blockbusters “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” and “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” David Heyman, the producer of all of the Harry Potter films, again produced the film, together with David Barron, and J.K. Rowling. Screenwriter Steve Kloves adapted the screenplay, based on the book by Rowling. Lionel Wigram is the executive producer.

Hermione GraingerHeading the cast, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson reprise their roles as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.

The film’s ensemble cast also includes Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Tom Felton, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon, Brendan Gleeson, Richard Griffiths, John Hurt, Jason Isaacs, Bill Nighy, Alan Rickman, Fiona Shaw, Timothy Spall, Imelda Staunton, David Thewlis, Julie Walters and Bonnie Wright.

Behind the scenes, the creative team was led by director of photography Eduardo Serra, production designer Stuart Craig, editor Mark Day, composer Alexandre Desplat, costume designer Jany Temime, and visual effects supervisor Tim Burke.

Harry & GinnyWarner Bros. Pictures presents a Heyday Films production, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” which marks the last film of the most successful motion picture franchise of all time. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1” will be released worldwide starting November 19, 2010, and “Part 2” starting July 15, 2011.

Warners have also added three new featurettes to their Youtube channel, just in case the new photos aren’t enough to whet your appetite.

Furthermore, if you join the Harry Potter UK Facebook page between now and the film’s release, you could win one of 100 tickets to the world premiere in London by joining the Join The Final Battle Application hosted on the page.

Ok, *sigh*, I’ll say it, looks like this Christmas we’ll all be potty for Potter…
