Everyone’s heard of Harry Potter. Although generally thought to appeal to children, the Harry Potter world contains many points that adults can also be interested. Have you ever wondered what made Harry Potter that successful?
It all started twenty years ago, J. K. Rowling published a book about a boy named Harry Potter and lived under the stairs in his aunt and uncle’s house. He gets a letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Although his uncle and aunt do not want him to go, a bearded giant man appears at the door and gets him to change his life forever. He meets his lifetime friends there and has many adventures. Since Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone have been published twenty years ago, the film remains the most popular fantasy film of all time.
There happens to be lots of elements for Harry Potter films to become successful including friendships, the importance of family, breathtaking adventures and so on. The mix of these elements means a global success.
