CATEGORIES Movie NewsLooks like Harry Potter still has plenty of magic left in him.
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" hasn't been in theaters for almost two years, but it's still on the minds of fans, who came out in full-force to vote the Harry Potter franchise finale as the the all-time best sequel in the fantasy genre -- delivering a mighty, final-round blow to "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" -- in the first month of Moviefone's Summer Sequel Smackdown 2013.
During the fantasy genre bracket, which ran from April 29 through May 27, fantasy genre enthusiasts logged a total of more than 300,000 votes, coming back week after week to make sure their top pick moved on to the next round. Over the course of those four weeks, fans' votes cut 16 movies down to eight, then to four, then to the final two, "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2."
Congratulations, Harry Potter fans! "Deathly Hallows: Part 2" is the reigning fantasy champ.
