The mission to destroy the Horcruxes begins in HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 1, directed by David Yates.
J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” was published in 2007.
The whole of the world has fallen on the shoulders of The Boy Who Lived. In control of both the Ministry of Magic and Hogwarts, Voldemort takes his place at the head of the Wizarding world, forcing Harry Potter into hiding. With all hope dimming, Harry, Ron and Hermione set out to find and destroy Voldemort’s horcruxes, magical artifacts cursed by the Dark Lord with a segment of his soul, protecting him from death. As the trio zaps around all of Britain, they discover Voldemort’s ultimate goal: obtaining the Deathly Hallows, the three most powerful artifacts in all of magic.
The first part of the series’ grand conclusion, Deathly Hallows Part 1 features the Potter crew in full-on angst-ridden teen mode – complete with Nick Cave sad-dancing – but things are always darkest before the light can break through. Lumos!
