Deathly Hallows Part 1
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, the penultimate film in the franchise, is the third Harry Potter film to be directed by David Yates. The existing cast is joined by Bill Nighy as the new Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour and Rhys Ifans as Xenophilius Lovegood (Luna's father) and of course Ralph Fiennes who plays Lord Voldemort.
Following Dumbledore's death, Voldemort has completed his ascension to power and gained control of the Ministry of Magic. The plot of the seventh film in the series sees Harry, Hermione and Ron on the run from Lord Voldemort and his henchmen. They must sever all ties with home - and Hogwarts - to find and destroy Voldemort's remaining Horcruxes, the only means of destroying the Dark Lord.
While on this journey, the trio comes across a strange symbol, which they learn represents the mythical Deathly Hallows. The Hallows are revealed to be three sacred objects: the Resurrection Stone, a stone with the power to recall the dead to the world of the living; the Elder Wand, an unbeatable wand; and an infallible Invisibility Cloak, the significance of which will surely be revealed in the eighth and final instalment of the Harry Potter series.
Emma said of the task facing the three friends in this film: "It's challenging in every way – physically, emotionally. They're away from home. They're isolated, they don't have any news. They don't know what they're doing. They're pulling at shreds. Dumbledore has hardly left them anything to go on."
