The book series may be finished, but the movies aren't. Make way for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

The sixth installment of the seven-part screen adventures is set to open July 17 – but here PEOPLE presents a first look at the poster for this highly anticipated release.

For those with dim memories of the 2005 novel: When the Dark Side begins making waves in the wizardry world, Harry (Daniel Radcliff) starts private defense classes with Dumbledore (Michael Gambon), all the while learning the history of his enemy, Voldemort (Ralph Finnes). His source? A journal by the half-blooded prince.

As for whether Harry or the Dark Side shall prevail, Muggles will just have to wait and see.
