Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1

Categories: [ TV/Cinema/Harry Potter ]


Voldemort is back and threatens Great Britain. Harry is taken out of his uncle's home by his wizard friends and to safety at the Burrow. During the wedding of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour the Death Eaters attack and Harry, Hermione and Ron flee. Harry follows the orders of the late Dumbledore i.e., to seek and destroy the horcruxes containing bits of Voldemort's soul. One of those, a locket, had been stolen from the house at Grimmauld's Place by Mundungus Fletcher and forcibly sold to Dolores Umbridge, now collaborating with the Death Eaters who have taken over the Ministry of Magic. In disguise, they infiltrate the Ministry and steal the locket from around Umbridge's neck. They then flee to the countryside. Ron is hurt and needs to rest a lot. Harry and Hermione try to find a way to destroy the locket: the sword of Griffindor would do the job, but it is nowhere to be found. Harry also has visions of Voldemort looking for the Elder Wand, one of the three Deathly Hallows. Because of the evil effect of the locket, Ron becomes jealous of Harry and Hermione and leaves. The other two then go to Godric's Hollow in the hope to meet Bathilda Bagshot who knew the Dumbledore family well, in the hope she can tell them something about the other horecuxes. But Bathilda has already been killed and they barely escape an attack by Voldemort's snake, Nagini. After that, Harry sees a Patronus that leads him to the sword, at the bottom of a frozen pond. Ron reappears at that moment and helps him destroy the locket. They then visit Xenophilius Lovegood, who could tell them about the Deathly Hallows, but since his daughter Luna has been kidnapped by the Death Eaters, he warns them of our three heroes' presence in the hope that Luna will be returned to him in exchange. Harry also has a vision that the Elder Wand is in Dumbledore's grave. They manage to escape but are eventually caught by Snatchers and led to Malfoy's manor. There (and other prisoners: Luna, Ollivander and Griphook) are saved by Dobby, who gets killed in the escape. In the end, Voldemort opens Dumbledore's tomb and takes the Wand.
