There is a quote in the first book that best describes the magical journey of Harry Potter. Author J.K. Rowling has beautifully quoted, “This boy will be famous. There won’t be a child who doesn’t know his name.”
So after seven books and eight films, this quote aptly stands true to the magic and hysteria the Harry Potter books and movies have managed to evoke. The Pottermania enamors children and adults alike.
What the stories of Harry Potter’s journey brought into the lives of readers and movie-goers is something that rarely any book series or movie has managed to do. It taught us the power of friendship, hope, trusting people, and having faith in the good inside of them, and most of all, it led us to believe in magic!!
