Tears were shed, wands boxed and Hogwarts badges solemnly put away, and that was just the fans.
At the opening of the Harry Potter studio tour last year, we asked Tom Felton, Rupert Grint, Evanna Lynch and Natalia Tena what they would miss most (and least) about their time making the films.
From hair dye and early mornings to - of course - the people they worked alongside for most of their childhood, watch the video below to see what they had to say.
Fans can relive the series in full with the 31-disc Harry Potter Wizard's Collection.
The Wizard's Collection is the first time that every version of all eight movies have been made available to fans, with theatrical versions of every instalment and extended versions of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
The gift box measures 32.4cm x 26.4cm x 28.6cm and weighs in at 19 lbs, making it the largest ever collection released by Warner Bros.
The set, which also contains eight pieces of collectible Harry Potter movie memorabilia, will be released on September 10 at a cost of £259.99/$499.99.
