Harry Potter’s fantasy story immersed followers in the magical world of Hogwarts, where they could ride broomsticks, play Quidditch, cast spells, create potions, meet amazing mythological animals, make new friends, and, of course, battle bad wizards. Harry’s journey pushes the audience to fight against their inner demons and stand up for what’s right, from a timid and introverted orphan in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001) to leading an army against the Dark Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (2010 and 2011).
Perhaps the best sorcery-based film series of all time is the Harry Potter franchise. The eight-part adaptation is based on J. K. Rowling’s bestselling fantasy novels of the same name, and it has become a global phenomenon, with Harry Potter becoming a pop culture icon. Even a decade after the final film was released, the Harry Potter franchise has a devoted following.
Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Hermione (Emma Watson), and Ron (Rupert Grint) are the famous three who show how a good group of friends can make all the difference. It’s all about friendship, magic, and love in Harry Potter.
