As the final Harry Potter film continues to dominate at the box office this weekend, fans and moviegoers alike took to Twitter to reflect on the 10-year franchise and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.

On Friday, Deathly Hallows Part 2 grossed a record $92.1 million in the domestic box office and is on track to beat The Dark Knight's $158.4 million box office performance in its opening weekend in the U.S. Including international box office receipts, Deathly Hallows Part 2 has already grossed $249.6 million.
