It’s the film of the year all muggles have been waiting for – “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows—Part 1″ will be in theatres 17 Nov (Denmark and Sweden) and 19 Nov (Norway and Finland). This film picks up where Harry and his friends left the audience in suspense when they decided to take matters into their own hands and start their dangerous adventure… to take down Voldemort. What a cliff-hanger!
The film begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out to track down the Horcruxes while being chased by the Death Eaters. This is the seventh and final film, but it will be told in two parts and we have to wait until next summer before we get to see Part 2.
