The Harry Potter series, by J.K. Rowling, tells the fantastic story of a young orphan and wizard, Harry Potter, and his friends, namely Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, during their studies at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It is a tale of good vs. evil, the struggle of a Chosen One against the Dark Lord (Voldemort) who is intent on securing his immortality at all cost.
The Harry Potter series exploded into the biggest literary achievement of all-time - wildly popular with adults and children alike.
The first book (also known as Philosopher’s Stone) was released in 1997, with the series drawing to a thrilling conclusion a decade later in 2007. In order:
- Book 1: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

The books have sold over 500 million copies, been adapted into the third highest-grossing movie series of all time, spawned a franchise of merchandise, exhibits, a spin-off series (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), and several Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme parks at Universal Studios.
