Good news for Harry Potter fans - the books may have finished but the films will keep on coming until 2011.

Warner Brothers have announced the second part of the final film - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - will be released on 15 July 2011.

They decided to split the film of JK Rowling's last book in the series about the boy wizard into two parts, as there was too much to squeeze into one film.

Filming on the first part of the film is due to finish later in the year.

In the meantime, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will hit cinema screens in July, while part one of the Deathly Hallows is due for release on 19 November 2010.
