The seventh and final Harry Potter novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, came out in 2007. Warner Bros. released a two part film adaptation of that book in 2010 and 2011. Despite Voldemort being defeated, the franchise is far from over. This fall sees the premiere of the spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, an all-new adventure based on the Hogwarts textbook of the same name. In addition, Harry Potter author J.K.
