The Death Eaters have taken over the Ministry of Magic and the intrepid three are on the run. The Dark Lord Voldemort has put up a huge reward for anyone who turns in Harry so that he can kill him.

The Dark Lord insists that no-one is to kill Harry because he wants that pleasure for himself.

Harry doesn’t know what the Horcruxes look like, where they are, and he doesn’t have any means of destroying them. While Harry is on this quest, he keeps having little glimpses into Voldemorts mind and he sees that The Dark Lord is also on a quest. Voldemort’s quest is to find a wand that Harry has never heard of, and when Harry investigates his leads take him to a mysterious story about “The Deathly Hallows“.

Here’s the Official Trailer for HP & the Deathly Hallows – Part 1:

And an amusing aside – Harry Potter vs. Voldemort – The Rap Throwdown Challenge:

So, are you going to be watching HP7-1? Or have you moved on from all things Harry P? It’s okay if you have, so long as you haven’t moved to silly stories about vampires that shimmer in the sunlight. That wouldn’t be good for you.
