The legendary "Harry Potter" franchise releases its final movie after almost one decade of capturing the interest and imagination of people around the world. Producing eight successful movies in a span of 10 years is quite an accomplishment. From the iconic performances that catapulted Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), and many other British talents into international stardom to the very long list of filmmaking talents who received varying accolades for their works, the "Harry Potter" movie franchise has much to leave for film historians to chronicle.
The "Harry Potter" movies employed over 2,000 filmmaking talents on and off screen. So far, it has already reaped more than $6.3 billion in worldwide earnings. It also continues to rake in more financial rewards through the home movie market, a number of "Harry Potter" merchandise items, its video game offerings, and many other money-making endeavors.
