Wizarding World Joins Pottery Barn to Release NEW Harry Potter Collection

The Wizarding World has partnered with Pottery Barn to launch a new collection of Harry Potter merchandise! This large collection of home goods and accessories will add a hint of magic to the homes of Harry Potter fans.


“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with the Harry Potter franchise and embark on a new chapter that includes Pottery Barn and Pottery Barn Kids,” Jennifer Kellor, President of Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen, said in a press release.


Though Pottery Barn released Harry Potter merch last year through their PBteen branch, this newest collection offers a wider range of pieces for fans. From Hedwig-inspired bean bags to educational degree wall art to Deathly Hallows inspired bluetooth speakers, there is plenty to choose from! 


Here is a sneak peak of the many merchandise options in the Harry Potter Collection!

1980's Harry Potter

Harry Potter Existed in the 1980s

People of a certain age might have believed they were living in the golden era of Harry Potter. They were wrong.


See, there once was a fictional character named Harry Potter Jr. Played by Noah Hathaway (see: The NeverEnding Story). The character was the star of the movie Troll, which received poor reviews but became a cult classic after its 1986 release.

The story is about a boy who uses magic in a wizarding world to defeat a troll. Sounds somewhat similar to J.K.Rowling’s story, right?


The author has always denied a connection to the movie, but some people involved in its creation aren’t so convinced. Making matters worse, a coming prequel – Troll: The Rise of Harry Potter Jr., starring Patricia Arquette – is set to make people even more confused/resentful later this year.

What’s so interesting about the two distinct Potters is that their lives are surrounded by magic, wizardry, and mayhem. Just look at the short synopsis of the upcoming film:


“The new animated feature will revisit the world of the wizardry originally created in the 1986 TROLL movie in which a wicked, magical troll wizard envisages taking over the world. Only Harry Potter, Jr., with the help of a magical witch, can save the planet from the clutches of the troll wizard and his evil force.”


This sounds oddly familiar… We really can’t wrap our heads around it! It might be a genius move for the producers to put ‘Harry Potter’ in the film title, or a terrible move. We’re guessing a number of Potter fans will be deeply disappointed by the Troll reboot.
