Something to make Harry Potter fans (especially the purists) very happy: The final book will be made into two films, tentatively titled Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II.

According to David Yates, the director, the other books had compartmentalized subplots that were easy to excise. Book 7 lacks the subplots and is all main story.

Release dates are set for November 2010 and May 2011 for each film.
