Harry Potter

Harry Potter is a series of books written by J.K. Rowling and released between 1997 and 2007. It achieved wild commercial success, such that it became an entire franchise, with a series of movie adaptions, video games, spin-off books and movies, and a wide range of merchandise all released over the years. There are even Harry Potter theme parks (or sections of theme parks) – I’ve visited the one at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. It’s a major cultural touchstone for millennials, and certainly I was Harry Potter crazy myself in the second half of primary school.
