The magical world of the internationally renowned character Harry Potter began as the fanciful tale by author J. K. Rowling. Publishing seven books in the series, these novels came to define fantasy literature for an entire generation. The plot centers around the life of one young wizard named Harry Potter, who possessed a unique gift that saved his life when he was a young infant. After the main antagonist of the series, the Dark Lord Voldemort murdered his parents, he tried to finish off the family by killing baby Harry. When performing the killing spell, the incantation backfired and dispelled the dark Lord’s power. From then on, the boy who lived would never be the same again. Meeting his close friends and allies Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger during his first few moments of entering the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, their adventures would change the world as they knew it. The novels chronicle Harry and his friends quest to take down the dark Lord and his followers once and for all. Continually evading kill and capture they prevent the evil cult from taking over the magical and non-magical world.
