Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows: Part 1

Genre: Adventure, Family

These are dark times,

there is no denying.

Our world has, perhaps, faced

no greater threat than it does today.

But I say this to our citizenry:

We, ever your servants...

...will continue to

defend your liberty...

...and repel the forces

that seek to take it from you.

Your Ministry remains...


Hermione. Tea's ready, darling.

Coming, Mom.

Come on, Dudley, hurry up.

I still don't understand

why we have to leave.

Because, uh, it's not

safe for us here anymore.

Ron, tell your father

supper's nearly ready.

Is this in Australia?

Looks wonderful, doesn't it?

Three and a half thousand

kilometers along Australia's east coast.



I was beginning to worry

you had lost your way.

Come, we've saved you a seat.

You bring news, I trust?

It will happen Saturday

next, at nightfall.

I've heard differently, my Lord.

Dawlish, the Auror, has let

slip that the Potter boy...

...will not be moved until

the 30th of this month.

The day before he turns 17.

This is a false trail.

The Auror Office no longer plays any

part in the protection of Harry Potter.

Those closest to him believe

we have infiltrated the Ministry.

Well, they got that

right, haven't they?

What say you, Pius?

One hears many

things, my Lord.

Whether the truth is

among them is not clear.

Heh. Spoken like

a true politician.

You will, I think,

prove most useful, Pius.

- Where will he be taken, the boy?

- To a safe house.

Most likely the home of someone

in the Order.

I'm told it's been given every

manner of protection possible.

Once there, it will be

impractical to attack him.

Ahem. My Lord. I'd like to

volunteer myself for this task.

I want to kill the boy.


Have I not spoken to you

about keeping our guest quiet?

Yes, my Lord.

Right away, my Lord.

As inspiring as I find

your bloodlust, Bellatrix...

...I must be the one

to kill Harry Potter.

But I face an

unfortunate complication.

That my wand and Potter's

share the same core.

They are, in some ways, twins.

We can wound, but not

fatally harm one another.

If I am to kill him...

...I must do it with

another's wand.

Come, surely one of you

would like the honor?


What about you, Lucius?

My Lord?

"My Lord?"

I require your wand.

Do I detect elm?

Yes, my Lord.

And the core?

Dragon. Ahem.

Dragon heartstring, my Lord.

- Dragon heartstring.

- Mm.

To those of you

who do not know...

...we are joined tonight

by Miss Charity Burbage...

...who, until recently, taught at Hogwarts

School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Her specialty was

Muggle Studies.

It is Miss Burbage's belief that

Muggles are not so different from us.

She would, given her way...

...have us mate with them.

To her, the mixture of magical and

Muggle blood is not an abomination...

...but something to be encouraged.


Severus, please.

We're friends.

Avada Kedavra!



- Hello, Harry.

- All right. Wow.


- You're looking fit.

- Yeah, he's absolutely gorgeous.

What say we get undercover

before someone murders him?


I thought you were looking

after the Prime Minister.

You are more important.

- Hello, Harry. Bill Weasley.

- Oh. Pleasure to meet you.

- He was never always this handsome.

- Dead ugly.

True enough.

Owe it all to a werewolf,

name of Greyback.

- Hope to repay the favor one day.

- You're still beautiful to me, William.

Just remember, Fleur, Bill takes

his steaks on the raw side now.

My husband, the joker.

By the way, wait till you hear

the news. Remus and I--

All right. We'll have time

for a cozy catch-up later.
