Part One of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows marks the beginning of the end. When the last book of the best-selling series was released, many fans took solace in the fact that there were still more of the films left to enjoy. But now the multi-million franchise is winding down to an end with the final novel being adapted into two films. Director David Yates returns after helming Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince to see the series off.

It’s up to ‘The Boy Who Lived’ and his friends to find and destroy the Horcruxes, fragmented parts of Voldermort’s soul, in order to defeat the Dark Lord.
