Fear not, Hogwarts junkies. Yes, the release of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2" marks the end of a cinematic era. But that doesn't mean your fantasy fix is about to vanish like an invisibility cloak.
"Stories like 'Star Trek' and 'Potter' are the new mythology for our times," said Mr. Frazetti, who has taught a course on the anthropology of "Harry Potter." "It's almost along the lines of a religious text. How many ways can you reinterpret it? That's what keeps the myth alive."
"With 'Star Wars,' you even see people unhappy with where Lucas has taken the films," Mr. Frazetti said.
