It all ends with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2--or maybe not. J.K. Rowling has hinted that she could bring it back; in the meantime she's releasing ebooks of the series at Pottermore. And fan fiction writers will continue to create their own alternative Potter universe, as detailed in Lev Grossman's must-read Time fan fiction feature. Here's our fearless box office forecast, a rave review, and early review round-up.

Star Daniel Radcliffe tells MTV: "Providing a script is good enough. I would absolutely do another, but it's not something I'm looking for in the next couple of years, certainly." For now, the big fat paychecks will have to come from somewhere else for Radcliffe and Emma Watson.

Up next for Radcliffe is The Woman in Black (January 2012), which is in post; he's attached to comedies Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse (with actor-writer-director Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel) and Christopher Monger's The Amateur Photographer (in addition to How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying on Broadway). Watson, who dropped out of Brown, co-stars in Stephen Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012) and Simon Curtis' My Week with Marilyn (November 4),

Savor every last drop of Harry Potter coverage while you can:

- Check out Badass Digest's report from the set. They confirm: "The series is leaving its mark – culturally, physically and especially in the lives of the actors who starred in all eight films," and report that the sets will be open for a three-hour walking tour in 2012...

- Here is MTV's coverage of the New York City premiere (pictured), where Radcliffe comments on the parts of the film that brought him to tears: "What I was impressed by was that it wasn't a sense of nostalgia and emotion caused by my own personal relationship with the films, I was a wreck because of the film itself. You've got to have a heart of stone to not find part of it — especially Alan Rickman's performance — heartbreaking, so yeah, I've done my fair share of crying already."

- THR has 25 Surprising Facts about Harry Potter, including: "The Harry Potter art department contained a team of 58 people working full time. Over 10 years they produced some amazing work, and also 35 babies."
