Two brief featurettes for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows aired this weekend on ABC Family’s Harry Potter weekend (isn’t that every weekend on ABC Family?). The first featurette is more of an overview of the film and how Harry, Ron, and Hermoine are on the run because there’s nowhere they can go where they’ll be safe and they have to destroy magical items called “horcruxes” in order to defeat Voldemort. The second featurette is about a sequence where the three are running away from enemies in a forest. I learned that they had to run really fast.
Hit the jump to check out both featurettes. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I hits theaters on November 19th, and Part II is set to open on July 15, 2011. Deathly Hallows is one of the films Warner Bros. will be showing off at its Comic-Con panel on Saturday, July 24th.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction—the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.
Meanwhile, the wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort’s Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry Potter. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort…alive.
Harry’s only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale—the legend of the Deathly Hallows. And if the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks.
Little does Harry know that his future has already been decided by his past when, on that fateful day, he became “the Boy Who Lived.” No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.
