The end is nigh for the blockbuster Harry Potter film franchise, with the premiere of the seventh and penultimate movie on Thursday and its young stars looking to life beyond the fictitious world of wizardry.
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" is the first of two big budget pictures to be based on the last of J.K.
Rowling’s hugely popular books about the boy wizard and his battle against evil set at Hogwarts school.
The film series has been a major money spinner for Hollywood studio Warner Bros and its parent company Time Warner Inc, with the first six films amassing $5.4 billion in ticket sales around the world.
