Released in 2010, the first part of The Deathly Hallows served as the penultimate chapter of the saga, an adaptation of the last book that was divided into two parts for the big screen. Here we are taken out of Hogwarts castle, which caused a lot of strangeness for those who were used to watching the films set in the corridors and halls of the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. However, the seventh installment of the franchise is a beautifully filmed and emotionally satisfying installment to the series, already setting the mood for farewell.

Taking the most extensive book in the series and adapting it to theaters was no easy task, even though Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is almost 150 minutes long, it is the shortest film in the entire movie franchise. However, director David Yates performs this work masterfully, creating a fun chapter, full of action and without escaping the dark atmosphere already introduced in the previous film in the saga.
