Harry Potter fans, get excited! The first image from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II has been released and it features a bloody, ravaged Neville Longbottom (Matthew Lewis) in a scene from the dramatic fight sequence near the end. We can also see Bellatrix Lestrange (Helena Bonham Carter) in the background but this appears to be a Neville moment (if you’ve read the book, you can probably guess what this image depicts). Also making news with the second instalment is how one key scene from the book has been changed. I won’t spoil it here but read on after the jump if you want to find out.

According to the film’s art director, Andrew Ackland-Snow, Severus Snape’s death scene has been moved from the Shrieking Shack to the Boathouse — a decision that was made to give the scene a “more dramatic atmosphere . . . it’s a very romantic place to die. Snape dies in a extremely good way, I gotta say.” According to Andrew the scene has author J.K. Rowling’s seal of approval, but does it have yours?
