As screen shots from the latest Harry Potter movie hit the Internet, we’ve uncovered more news about everyone’s favorite young wizard.

The final book by author J.K. Rowling (pictured) will be called: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows.

Rowling’s U.S. publisher, Scholastic, Inc., released a brief statement Thursday announcing the name of the world’s most anticipated children’s book, the finale to her phenomenally popular fantasy series.

No publication date or other details were offered. We’re also not sure if Daniel Radcliffe has found a date just yet. But Rowling did have the following to say:

“I’m now writing scenes that have been planned, in some cases, for a dozen years or even more. I don’t think anyone who has not been in a similar situation can possibly know how this feels: I am alternately elated and overwrought.”

Fans have had a similar reactions to news that Emma Watson may not stick around to finish the film series of these books. We’ll keep you updated on that situation as we learn more.
