Hey everyone! It’s finally October!!!! Do you remember being a kid and seeing commercials for the Harry Potter marathons that were going to be on in October for Halloween? I know I do!
Harry Potter is such a great series, expertly written by J.K. Rowling and I was even a super fan at one point. So, in the spirit of Halloween. Here’s an ultimate guide for Harry Potter fans!
Back to the Basics
J.K. Rowling wrote seven Harry Potter books that make up the classic series. Since then, there’s been a play released in book form, The Cursed Child, by J.K. Rowling and a few other contributors!
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has also been an immensely popular book with the Harry Potter crowd since it was inspired by the textbook at Hogwarts. Rowling wrote the fictional textbook, which landed a rocking movie deal and took the fandoms by storm.
Marathon Movie Night
Harry Potter was successfully made into 8 movies. The book series only had 7 books, but they made Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows into 2 movies since it was so long and full of important events.
The Cursed Child hasn’t had any definite plans for a movie yet, but there’s talk of it. As far Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, there’s one movie already out and another one coming out next month! (Oh yeah, I’m excited!)
If you want to have the most legendary movie marathon of all time, you should consider watching all eight Harry Potter movies! By the way, even if you only do the 8 movies in the original series, without including Fantastic Beasts, that’s still 19 hours and 40 minutes. Woah!
Let’s Take A Trip
If you want to go really crazy with everything Harry Potter, you could take a trip to Harry Potter World at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. I’ve actually been and the Harry Potter stuff was beyond cool! You can get your own wand, walk through Hogwarts to one of the rides, drink butterbeer, and much, much more!!
And if that doesn’t quite satisfy your taste for Harry Potter, then you should definitely fly to London and do the Warner Bros. Studio tour. It brings in thousands of Harry Potter fans each year and lets you see behind-the-scenes of the makings of the Harry Potter movies. Awesome, right?
Because everyone needs some Harry Potter Merch
From t-shirts to beanies to figurines to blankets to socks and back again, Harry Potter has taken over the merchandise industry! You can find just about anything with a Harry Potter-something on it.
I’d recommend checking out Amazon and Hot Topic if you need some new merch because they have some really nice stuff, “house” specific, as well!
Harry Potter is AWESOME!
Child’s play or not, Harry Potter has stolen the hearts of so many people worldwide! My boyfriend was absolutely right when he said Harry Potter creates a love of reading in children that almost none other series has rivaled.
