If you’re glad to see owls around your house, look suspiciously at people in hoods, smile passing by the 9th and 10th train platforms, and still wait for one specific letter then you’re certainly a potterhead as well as a half of the world.
This year is the 20th anniversary since the first book was published and all the fans feel nostalgic and a bit sad because the story has ended. Nevertheless, potterheads have nothing to complain about. Last year has brought two more stories about the favorite world and characters. The first was “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”, a play written by Jack Thorne (based on an original story by Thorne and J. K. Rowling). It presents the events nineteen years after the Battle of Hogwarts. Fans can finally learn what happened to their beloved characters and what life they experience after all the horrors they’ve been through. In autumn of the same year, a film director David Yates has released a spin-off called “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” and the world has caught new hype. The story about Newt Scamander and his unusual pets surprised not only Harry Potter fans but also caught the attention of other fantasy lovers. Moreover, the film has touched the uncovered story of Dumbledore’s life so potterheads are excited about the next part which is promised to be released in 2018.
All in all, it’s hard to say how much the story about the wizard boy has influenced the world. J.K. Rowling has started a new culture uniting millions of people around the world. The books about Harry Potter have taught many children to love reading as well as they’ve shown adults that there is always room for magic in our lives.
The magnificent story is a source of inspiration for many artists. Amateurs and professionals create their original artworks showing the characters from different sides. On 31th of July, J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter are celebrating their birthdays. D4U wishes them all the best and presents the collection of digital artworks devoted to Harry and his friends.
There is no chance people forget the magic story anytime soon. Harry Potter will stay in our hearts after many years. Always.
