New Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 Leaked Photo and Finished Still

Quick, close your eyes! Too late? Oh, well. If you know anything about the magical world of Harry Potter that J.K. Rowling created, then you already know that everything that has come before in the Warner Bros. movie adaptations has been leading up to the inevitable confrontation between "The Boy Who Lived," aka Harry Potter (played by Daniel Radcliffe), and "He Who Must Not Be Named," aka Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes). Now, Brazilian pop culture site Judao has posted online a leaked image from the set—note the very un-Potter sepia color of the image and the set piece at the back right-hand side of the stage—of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 that depicts a haggard but determined Harry Potter marching through the rubble of what was once Hogwarts, wand in hand, surrounded by bodies, during what can only be the climactic final battle between Harry and Voldemort.
Judao later updated the article containing the leaked image article with what is believed to be the completed still image of the same shot. The identities of the bodies in the background are no clearer, but the tint of the image has been altered to a more "Potter blue" and the set piece in the back has been digitally painted over with a receding background image.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 was written by Steve Kloves, writer of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. David Yates, director of both Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince, directed both Part 1 and Part 2. Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Alan Rickman, Helena Bonham Carter, Dave Legeno, David Thewlis, and Bill Nighy also star.
