Mark your calendar: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II will be released July 15, 2011, Warner Bros. has announced.
Part I of the film will open Nov. 19, 2010, the studio said last August. Both films are based on the 608-page seventh book in author J.K. Rowling's series.
In all, the first five Harry Potter movies, with a maturing Daniel Radcliffe in the lead, have made $4.5 billion internationally, surpassing the box-office records of both the James Bond and Star War series.
In other news from Warners, director Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes, starring Robert Downey Jr. as the great detective and Jude Law as sidekick Dr. Watson, will not open this coming Nov. 1, as originally planned, but on Christmas Day.
