Happy Birthday Harry Potter! Book Turns 20 Today

Believe it or not it’s been 20 years since the first Harry Potter book was released.   It’s also worth noting that it’s been 16 years since the first movie was released.  If there was ever a book series that could be argued as being the “most successful” ever it’s most certainly the Harry Potter series.   Not only has each book had a movie based on it, one book had two movies based on it and the franchise has brought in billions upon billions of dollars.

Truth be told we might not even be starting when it comes to spinoffs, prequels, etc etc.  If Fantastic Beasts and its sequel are any proof, there’s a lot more Harry Potter themed entertainment in store for us.  It sure seems that J.K. Rowling is done with Harry Potter but I’m pretty sure she’ll collect some nice royalties off of anyone else’s creations.

Anyway, here’s a hearty Happy birthday to the series.  We may never see another series of books like this one.
