You can take the wizard out of Hogwarts… and, well, apparently you can keep him out for the duration of a movie.

The first image from “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” has been posted over at USA Today, and it gives a good look of what to expect: Harry, Ron and Hermione spending a lot of time in the drab, ordinary human world.

That matches the first part of J.K. Rowling’s final “Potter” novel, wherein our heroes travel the magic-less world to gather artifacts that will help them defeat the evil Voldemort once and for all. Due to the book’s length, the movie adaptation will be split into two parts, with the second presumably covering the final battle against Voldemort at Hogwarts.

Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and Hermione (Emma Watson) look appropriately worried, while Ron (Rupert Grint, middle) definitely looks like he’s been missing sleep looking for magic “horcruxes.”

The first half of “Deathly Hallows” opens in theaters in November 2010, with the second half following in 2011.
