The final Harry Potter movie (at least that we know of) tied up all the loose end yesterday. First book came out June 30 1997 and last movie July 15, 2011.

As of June 2011, the book series has sold about 450 million copies and has been translated into 67 languages. The last four books consecutively set records as the fastest-selling books in history.

It is the highest grossing film series of all time

The series also originated much tie-in merchandise, making the Harry Potter brand worth in excess of $15 billion

I read all books and saw all the movies. I made sure to read each book before seeing each movie as books are almost always better than the movies.

Without a doubt the most enjoyable movie was Harry Potter 1 The Sorcerer's Stone. The first five books were all better than the last two. Hard to say which book I enjoyed the most,maybe 3 or 4 but 1 and 2 were both good too.

Anyway , a real phenomenal thing between the books and movies. If you are over 50 years old ,its unlikely anything like it will happen again in our lifetime.
