The 8-film franchise was based on the books by author J. K. Rowling. The first title, “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”, was first published in June 1997 and gained its theatrical adaptation in November 2001, starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.
Then, 6 more books and 7 films were released, since the last title, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was divided into two different films. Both in literature and in theaters, the franchise broke records for copies sold and box office copies, winning millions of fans around the world.
The saga tells the story of Harry, a boy who was just 11 years old when he discovered he was a wizard – and not only that, he was one of the most famous wizards in the magical community, as he survived the assassination attempt of the so-called Dark Lord . Then, Harry embarks on a series of adventures alongside his best friends, Ron and Hermione, while trying to save Lord Voldemort’s world.
