Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint bringing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 to Blu-ray
Warner Home Video has announced that the first installment in the final film HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 1 (HP 7.1), starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman and Ralph Fiennes, will be released on Blu-ray April 15, 2011 in a BD/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack. And in order to generate even more publicity, the studio has set up a website for the Quest for the Hallows, which is a global online adventure that offers exclusive photos, video content and a chance to win prizes throughout the year to celebrate the success of the Harry Potter films.
