Harry Potter has been making kids, teens and adults alike crazy for magic and wizardry for more than 20 years. With over 500 million copies sold, Harry Potter stands as the bestselling book series of all time. The original series captivated audiences and featured 7 books and 8 movies; fans are now enjoying a new series, Fantastic Beasts!
Harry Potter truly captured our muggle hearts with its magic. It brought us into a world of fantasy, enchantment and mystery. The series also showed us the beauty of difference with its 4 different houses. It taught us to embrace our smarts (Ravenclaw), our bravery (Gryffindor), our ambition (Slytherin) and our loyalty (Hufflepuff). The entirety of Hogwarts and the wizarding world was enticing to us muggles as it was so different from our ordinary lives.
