Last week Warner Bros. released character banners for the three main players from this year's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 - Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson).
Now we have seven new character-oriented one-sheets for the next Harry Potter pic, which the most recent Deathly Hallows trailer indicates should be the darkest and most intense chapter in the continuing story of the boy wizard and his battle against the snake-faced villain known as Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes).
These new character posters offer another look at the weathered (also, in Harry and Ron's case, scruffy) condition of the franchise's heros, as well as a peek at You-Know-Who himself and his cronies: the psychotic Bellatrix Lestrange (Helena Bonham Carter), the werewolf Fenrir Greyback (British cage fighter Dave Legeno) and Severus Snape (Alan Rickman), who (seemingly) showed his true colors at the conclusion of the sixth movie, Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince.
David Yates helmed both Half-Blood Prince and its predecessor, Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix. He sat in the director's chair for both halves of Deathly Hallows, which were scripted once again by Steve Kloves, the fellow responsible for penning all but the fifth Harry Potter film. If the early footage from Deathly Hallows is any indication, the two look to finish off the franchise with a bang.

We posted a SPOILER-FREE advanced review for Deathly Hallows: Part 1 back in August and it indicated that the film should satisfy both devoted Harry Potter book fans and more casual moviegoers alike. Radcliffe, Grint, Watson, and the rest of the young wizard cast have literally grown up and matured over the course of this series, so it will be fun to watch them play their respective characters on the big screen one last time in the two-part finale.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 arrives in regular, 3D, and IMAX 3D theaters in the U.S. on November 19th, 2010. Part 2 will follow on July 15th, 2011.
