Yes, I have No, I haven't.

What's all this about?

Harry Potter is a book and film series of seven novels and eight feature films about the years he spent at Hogwarts, a school for Witchcraft and Wizardry where he meets Voldemort, known to many people as You-Know-Who since they are frightened to say his name in case it summons him. On the way, he makes many new friends, including Ron and Hermione.

A Very Magical History

Twenty years ago, JK Rowling published a book named Harry Potter and the Philsopher's Stone. Back then, she was an English teacher, struggling to make ends meet. Her literary agent says that she wouldn't make a penny. But the book was an instant success after meeting fourteen publishers rejecting the story.

She then writes more and more Harry Potter books. Eventually, in 2007, she releases The Deathly Hallows, the final book in the series. The film is released in two parts three years later.

What next?

Rowling released The Cursed Child as a play in 2016 and said that that would be the end of Harry Potter. Or is it...?

Video

Mr Red Blob has made a video summarising what took JK Rowling 4000 pages and Warner Bros 17 hours in just five minutes. We know it's a challenge, but we're going to try!
