Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II, the final film in the hit series will be released in 2011, it has emerged.

Warner Bros has announced that the last instalment is to be released on July 15 2011.

The studios decided to split the seventh book in JK Rowling's series into two parts as it was impossible to cram its 608 pages into a single film.

Therefore, the first instalment will hit screens in November 2010, reports Contactmusic.

And, the next film about the boy wizard, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is released in July this year, having been postponed for eight months due to the studio''s wish for a summer blockbuster.

Stuntman David Holmes suffered serious back injuries on the set of Deathly Hallows last month practising an aerial sequence.

The set was closed for a week for investigation before being allowed to re-open by the Health and Safety Executive.
