20 years have passed since the release of the first Harry Potter movie. Are you beginning to feel old? All of the films are fantastic, and they have each grossed millions of dollars at the box office. Due to their success, they now have two different theme parks and a ton of amazing merchandise.


The films are all available on DVD and Blu-ray, but if you're anything like me, you probably purchased them and then misplaced them in the depths of your closet. However, it’s fine. With streaming services, new magic has emerged to save the day since DVDs are already essentially obsolete.


On Peacock, NBC's streaming service, all eight Harry Potter movies are accessible for viewing, and they can also be purchased digitally on Amazon Prime. On HBO Max, you can watch the magical scenes from the reunion special Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts.


What is the plot of Harry Potter?


In the 1997 book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry Potter first appears as an orphan who is mistreated by his guardians, his aunt and uncle and their son.


On the occasion of his 11th birthday, Harry learns that his parents were a wizard and a witch, and that he has been granted admission to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as a wizard. Additionally, he finds out that, contrary to what his aunt and uncle had previously told him, his parents were not killed in a car accident; rather, Voldemort, an evil wizard, had murdered them.


Harry was the only person to ever escape a Voldemort attack by reflecting back the latter's "killing curse," which left him with a scar in the shape of a lightning bolt on his forehead. Voldemort was virtually dead as a result of Harry's mysterious survival, and the young boy was thus already well-known in the "wizarding" community. Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, classmates at Hogwarts, become close friends with Harry quickly. Draco Malfoy emerges as a rival. The headmaster of the school, Albus Dumbledore, takes him under his wing. These bonds endure throughout the entire series, particularly as the young wizards and witches get older and are required to choose sides in an eventual wizard war.

The Creation and Impact of Harry Potter


J.K. Rowling, a British author, created Harry Potter. Seven wildly successful novels (1997–2007) about his adolescent exploits were turned into eight films (2001–11), and in 2016, a play and a book of the play's script were published.


Worldwide, the Harry Potter series has proven to be incredibly popular with both kids and adults. Each book was a bestseller, distributed in more than 200 nations and about 60 different languages. The phenomenon changed the meaning of existing words, giving the term "muggle" (a person lacking magical abilities) a new definition.


The books were made into a successful series of eight films that were released over ten years and made more than $7 billion in total revenue (the final book, which was about 750 pages long, was adapted into two films). The book and film series collectively gave rise to a massive amount of related merchandise, and in 2010, a theme park based on the franchise debuted in the United States.


What is the sequel to the Harry Potter series?


Chris Columbus, the director of the first two Harry Potter films, openly admitted that a film version of the stage play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” was the only way the series could go on. Fans naturally want to learn more about the HP trio's lives after the Second Wizarding World War because the play has already gained a lot of popularity. JK Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany's screenplay for an adaptation of the show would undoubtedly catch the interest of many fans who might not have been able to attend the live performance but had to make do with reading the script.


Harry Potter and the Cursed Child opens with 37-year-old parents, Harry, Ron, and Hermione, dropping their kids off at Hogwarts on Platform 9 3/4. The story is set 19 years after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The play continues Harry Potter's story through his son, Albus, and follows Albus Severus Potter as he goes on a time-traveling adventure and learns secrets from his father's past. The play also includes Scorpius, the son of Draco Malfoy; Rose, the daughter of Hermione and Ron; and Delphi, the unexpected child of Voldemort and Bellatrix Lestrange. The time-travel element of the play has the potential to create a very captivating film or television series that would appeal to both ardent Potter fans and brand-new viewers by reimagining a significant portion of the original plot.

What is the prequel to Harry Potter?


The fantasy film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which was released in 2016, was made by David Yates and J. K. Rowling. It serves as a spin-off prequel to the Harry Potter film series and is the first installment of the Fantastic Beasts film franchise, which was inspired by J.K. Rowling's 2001 guidebook of the same name. It is also the ninth installment overall in the Wizarding World franchise.


Warner Bros. Pictures' Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them had its world premiere in New York City on November 10, 2016, and on November 18, it was released in theaters everywhere in 2D, 3D, 4D, Dolby Cinema, and IMAX formats. It was well-received by critics and became a commercial success after earning $814 million globally, ranking it as the eighth highest-grossing movie of 2016.


The story takes place in 1926, and Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just returned from a worldwide quest to find and catalog an extraordinary variety of magical creatures. If it weren't for a No-Maj named Jacob, a lost magical case, and the escape of some of Newt's fantastical animals, which could cause problems for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds, he might have arrived in New York for a brief stopover and left without incident.
