Being an avid fanboy myself, I relate to you Harry Potter people (and please excuse the absence of correct lingo, as I am thus far unaware). The release of new material, whether it be video or otherwise, is seldom less than perfect, and always enough to whet your appetite until your next encounter with another scrap from the publicity office.

Well, whether you're a Muggle, Mudblood, or a straight up Wizard/Witch, you're most likely impatiently awaiting the arrival of the final installment of the Harry Potter series, HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS - PART I. Wait no longer, super fans! Today we have a new image from the film and the official plot synopsis. Given that I have gone un-read and un-spolied (somehow) on most of the big spoilers in the last book, I lack the wherewithal to judge the photo appropriately. I'd be interested in picking a super fans brain to see if this is a particularly important photo. I know when watching the trailer for the previous HARRY POTTER film, gasps flew up around me upon seeing the first glimpse at the dreaded "cave scene". Super fans? Is this a pivotal picture? Or just another random image that will end up in your scrap books?

Check out the photo and the synopsis, courtesy of Warner Brothers, after the break!

Fantasy Adventure. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” the seventh and final adventure in the Harry Potter film series, is a much-anticipated motion picture event to be told in two full-length parts.  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.

Now that is a synopsis.

I know a common complaint amongst readers was that The Deathly Hallows felt contrived, and rushed. They seemed to show up out of nowhere and still hold enough importance to end the entire series. Honestly, I'm not up in arms about so-so writing in my Harry Potter films, but I can understand it as a legitimate complaint. Hopefully, it'll come across a little more gracefully in the books. HARRY POTTER AND DEATHLY HALLOWS - PART I (or as I'm calling it THE LONGEST TITLED FILM EVER) hits theaters in 3D and 2D in select theaters November 19th.

Wrong book, I know, but it still works
