Countdown to Harry Potter
It's been nearly 10 years since the world was first introduced to a boy wizard named Harry Potter and his friends who caught the Hogwarts Express from Platform 9 3/4. With the countdown running down before the LAST Harry Potter movie ever, it is only fitting to blog about it. The seventh and final of the Harry Potter novels written by British author J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 will be in theaters. I got my tickets. It's weird and bittersweet to think the last movie is finally here. But don't worry , we can still recapture all the adventures of Harry, Hermione and Ron through all seven books and movies by getting them from your local branch library.
Although this is the end of more than a decade of watching Harry, Hermione and Ron grow-up, we can't forget the magical world and all the other characters J.K. Rowling introduced to us. From the Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witches, the world series on broomsticks sports, Quidditch, the ever-so-cleaver Weasley Family, Professor Albus Dumbledore, Bellatrix Lestrange, Dobby the House Elf, the ultimate bully Draco Malfoy to the primary and most unattractive antagonist of the entire series, Lord Voldemort. We even got Twilight's star, Robert Pattinson out the Harry Potter movie franchise. If you don't remember, he played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005).
So, who is your favorite Harry Potter character? Let us know by sharing your thoughts on Facebook.
If you like the Harry Potter books, you might want to try reading some of these books: The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan, The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman, or Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer to name a few.
