Harry Potter Trivia
Who…or what…is Harry Potter? Simply put, Harry Potter is a boy with a past. When he was an infant, a vastly powerful evil wizard killed his parents and attempted to kill Harry at the same time. The wizard’s spell backfired and Harry was spared. Now, without parents, he was taken to live with his only relatives–an Aunt, Uncle, and Cousin–who treated Harry very poorly. Around his coming of age, Harry was invited to attend a boarding school–Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry–where met many other magical beings and creatures. Along with his studies, Harry and his friends went on countless adventures and faced numerable challenges, some of which could literally kill him. Eventually, our story culminates with Harry Potter facing his arch nemesis Lord Voldemort, the very wizard that killed his parents.
The above description is an extremely brief synopsis of the fictional world of Harry Potter created by J.K. Rowling. Ms. Rowling’s work began with one book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (or “Philosopher’s Stone” in the UK) which was originally released in 1997. The initial book has been followed by no fewer than six additional books, all seven of which were turned into feature motion pictures, as well as theme parks, merchandise, multiple official websites, fan sites and countless other outlets for her work.
