“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.
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.
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.
Heading 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.
Warner 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
