The first photo from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II has appeared online. It started making the rounds over the weekend as a black and white, watermarked image but now a color photo has been found and it features none other than Neville Longbottom. We doubt this is an official photo but it still gives us a peek into the bloody and dangerous finale. Take a look…

***UPDATE: We have been asked by Warner Brothers to please remove the picture due to the fact that it was not ready for release. Sorry guys! Trust us, there will be plenty more coming soon that we can put up for you!! And if you want to see more info on the finishing of epilogue reshoots and more on Harry Potter if you need a Potter-fix!

This photo comes courtesy of HPANA, and it shows us how down and dirty the final battle for Hogwarts will get. Here we have a shot of Longbottom, played by Matthew Lewis and he’s covered in blood and dirt. He looks as if he’s been in the fight of his life. If you pay close attention to the background, you can see Helena Bonham-Carter’s character Bellatrix Lestrange standing in the background. What’s she up to?

OK Potter fans, it’s time to put your thinking caps on. For those of you who’ve read the book, where does this shot fit in the grand scheme of things? Do you have any idea where or when it takes place?

Harry Potter Part II will be released in 3D and 2D on July 15, 2011.
