Even though there are still about 3 months to go before the movie officially released on November 19, 2010, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I is already in the news. Directed by David Yates and based on the first part of the last of the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, this movie is eagerly awaited by fans.
The story follows Harry Potter and his 2 friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger in the quest for the remaining horcruxes, a task that Dumbledore left Harry before he died on the Astronomy Tower. Even though Dumbledore has set them the task, they must pursue the quest for horcruxes on their own without the guidance of the professor and without confiding the secret to any of the members of the Order of the Phoenix.
As the Death Eaters take over the ministry, Harry becomes the Undesired One from the Chosen One. As Harry, Ron and Hermione move onwards in their quest for the small fragments of Voldermort’s souls (horcruxes), they also come across the tale of the deathly hallows. Harry must now choose between pursuing the hallows versus the horcruxes and he chooses wisely.
The secret that Dumbledore suspected many years ago is revealed when Harry realizes that he is actually one of the horcruxes himself, the last that was unknowingly created on the day the Dark Lord tried to kill him.
Part II of the movie is scheduled to be released in July 2011 and the decision was taken to ensure that the richness, detailing and depth of the ideas and information in the book are preserved. Fan, no doubt, will appreciate this move, something that leaves them with more to look forward to after the release of part I.
