After ten years of production, filming of the Harry Potter movies is set to wrap today, June 12th.  According to a twitter update by actor Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick and Griphook), principal photography on "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" was completed today.  He tweets:

The end of an Era - today is officially the last day of principal photography on 'Harry Potter' - ever. I feel honoured to be here as the director shouts cut for the very last time. Farewell Harry & Hogwarts, it's been magic! x
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" will arrive in theaters November 19, 2010, and "Deathly Hallows" Part II" will be released on July 15, 2011.

best of luck to all the actors/actresses that participated in their future careers, now with Harry Potter Films on their resumes, they can literally do anything they want :) and my only hope is that if any remakes are made 20 years from now, they will keep the destruction of the weasley house out of it!! that part was completely unnecessary

This makes me sad and excited at the same time. Sad that it’s the end, excited to see the end. But Harry Potter will ALWAYS live on in my life, even if the books and movies are no more.

I’m seriously crying… OMG. I knew this was coming and yet the actual announcement of it still shocked and saddened me. We still have the actual movies to see, but it’s just not the same. This is the beginning of the end. {Tear}

The Harry Potter experience has been a wonderful enlivening period in my life at a time when my ability to get out and about independently was reduced through failing health. I am grateful to Jo Rowling for her creation and for being the kind of person she is. She set the standards and as a result we have had a truly remarkable literary and filmic phenomenon and talent and inspiration has simply poured out of the people involved in it. Those of you who grew up with Harry will have wonderful memories to carry with you into the future and share with your own children. Take heart, Harry will be the Boy Who Lived for a long time to come.

What will life be when there is no countdown to keep up with, no anticipation for the next movie, waiting for hours to be immensely satisfied by 2 hours of Harry. Oh the horror that will occur in the next year so many people will be lost!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
