Potter's House: is "Deathly Hallows" the end, or a prelude?

It's fitting, I believe, that our final post for July revolves around a finale. Not having screened the conclusion of the wizard series, I will refrain, as I have, from a direct review.

However, as this article implies, the runaway success of the franchise in general (over 10 billion in global grosses) and this movie in particular ( over a billion), certainly raises questions. Mainly, how will the franchise be kept alive, notwithstanding author JK Rowling's Pottermore web enterprise.

I expect that,apart from network TV screenings of the films, there will be special adaptations and iterations for cable and other TV audiences. An animated series must already be in the works, as are more documentary features on the series and the characters.;_
