Looks like Hogwarts should be prepared for a whole new generation of wizards.

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, 20, says that once the successful sorcerer's saga is over, his biggest project will be starting a family ... at some unspecified point in the future.

"No man, I've got kids to have yet!" he tells the BBC. "They're going to keep me busy if I do – which I hope I do at some point. I'm not planning on it soon – that's one of the things I'm really looking forward to doing."

Radcliffe, who has just recently opened up about his dating habits, says that life after Harry Potter is daunting but promising – a sentiment shared by costar Rupert Grint, 21, who plays Harry's best friend, Ron. .

"It is quite scary when this all ends because we're stepping out into the real world – it is quite a bubble I suppose, we've had these films to do every year and it's become quite a routine," Grint says. "I'm definitely going to miss it. It's been a great 10 years."

He then adds: "I am quite keen to move on and see what else is out there."
