“Every child in our world will know his name.”
And the book was right! Almost everybody has heard of the boy who lived…Harry Potter. Starting as a tale of a lonely boy who turned out to be a wizard, the book series was so greatly loved by children and adults alike all over the world, and its fanbase only grew larger as the books were adapted into a film series as well.

It has been over a decade since the release of the final movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, yet the popularity of the series, both the film and the book, continues to persist.
