Nineteen years ago today, the film adaptation of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone was brought to the big screen, branding the Wizarding World in our young hearts and ever evolving minds. Here we are, almost two decades older than when we began this journey with out favorite boy wizard, and we're just as amazed (or, more accurately, obsessed) as ever by his story. In commemoration of the day that brought Harry and his magical adventures into our lives for good, I thought I'd give a bit of a brief analysis (with some of my own personal Potter memories) about what makes Harry Potter so special?
Our favorite Ravenclaw, Luna Lovegood, believes herself to be a true Gryffindor in real life. The actress, Evanna Lynch, is an animal activist and she is currently fighting for owls that are being used as lab rats at John Hopkins University.
In 2018, videos of a new Harry Potter console game started circulating online. Two years later, Hogwarts Legacy is officially introduced to the world. The game is set at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the late 1800s. Players can explore the open world game by taking the role of a student and creating a new story that can involve dangerous journeys to uncover the hidden truth of the wizarding world. The official trailer shows stunning imagery for the game.
Players will be able to grow their characters abilities, embark on choice-driven missions, cast charms, duel with offensive spells, and so much more! Users can also travel to other locations such as: Hogsmeade Village and the Forbidden Forest. Sony’s Playstation 5 presented the news that the open-world, single-player role-playing game will be released in 2021 on PS5, PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One consoles, and PC.
