I understand why most people prefer the “Harry Potter” books over the movies. They have more details, characters, character development, and much more. Examples include: Backstories of different characters, especially the marauders (Sirius, James, Lupin, and Pettigrew) SPEW (Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare) Peeves the poltergeist Sometimes, the events in the films couldContinue reading “My Evaluation of the “Harry Potter” Books and Movies”
For anyone who enjoys and knows a lot about “Harry Potter,” it’s probably common knowledge that Dumbledore has a say in where Harry lives. He orders Hagrid to take Harry to his aunt and uncle after Sirius requested to take him in back in 1981. He demands that Harry live there and calls it homeContinue reading ““Harry Potter” Mystery: Why Does Dumbledore Get a Say in Where Harry Lives?”
Whether you’re a die-hard “Harry Potter” fan or just know a little bit about the series, like if you’re just starting to read the books or watch the films, you might notice how different wizards and witches are from muggles (non-magical people). This could be due to the International Statue of Secrecy, where magicians must hide their magic and facts about the wizarding world to muggles.

While many “Harry Potter” fans point out how wizards don’t always care about safety, despite the characters claiming so, few have noticed the seemingly little care involved with cleanliness and sanitation too.
Many discuss the “missing day” in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” between the night Lily and James died and the next evening when Hagrid delivers Baby Harry to his aunt and uncle. But fewer talk about the “missing month” in the film.
Unlike the canon “Harry Potter” series, “Potter Puppet Pals” used slapstick humor throughout. Some videos were live and others were animated, including the ones other people have made, using the Potter Puppet Pals scene creator (I don’t know if it exists anymore).
The first installment of the “Fantastic Beasts” film series began in 2016. It’s a spinoff and continuation of the “Harry Potter” universe, but is set 70 years before the “Harry Potter” series is set (1991-1998). The second movie will come out this November 2018. There will be five films.
Every “Harry Potter” fan or even pretty much anyone in the general public should know that Harry lost his parents as a baby thanks to Voldemort, and had to grow up with his abusive aunt and uncle.
