Harry Potter is back

HARRY Potter fans can catch up with the latest wizardry in part one of the Deathly Hallows, which is showing at cinemas nationwide from this week.
The war has begun and Voldemort’s Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and Hogwarts, terrorising and arresting anyone who might oppose them.
However, the most valuable prize they still seek is Harry Potter, whose only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him.
In the first instalment of the tale, 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.
Without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But as Harry 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.
No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the ultimate battle with Voldemort.
The decision to divide Rowling’s final book into a two-part movie came from the original declined proposal to split Goblet of Fire in 2004.
Deathly Hallows was shot back to back and treated as if it were one film.
