It’s been eleven years since Harry Potter the young half-blood wizard came onto the movie screen in the physical form of Daniel Racliffe. Back in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry and his friends were kids attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where they  learned magic and engaged in such innocent pursuits as rousing games of Quidditch.

Just like Harry and his friends, the majority of the audiences who embraced the Harry Potter movies were young kids as well. In the time since, that audience has grown up and so has Harry Potter, Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson). Gone of are the days of innocent childhood as the three of them set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s (Ralph Fiennes) immortality and destruction:the Horcruxes. On their own and on the run, they find out that the wizarding world has become a dangerous place. The long-feared war has begun and the Dark Lord has seized control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting all who might oppose him. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort, alive.

There is no doubt about it, Harry Potter isn’t kidding around anymore!
