Harry Potter was played by Daniel Radcliffe on the big screen. It depicted a famous wizard of modern times but never knew when the story of his life began. He started learning the art of wizardry when he turned 11 years old and later joined Hogwarts which set the scene for meeting Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley. From then on, he started living a rather dangerous and adventurous life with both of his friends during which period he started his fight against evil and He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. Being him is very difficult, both then and some 18 years after the last of the series was completed.
The original series were designed by J.K Rowling and it is based on the principal series of the work. Rowling traced the story of Harry Potter when he was on scholarship at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Each of the books in the series covers up to one year period of time.
The original Harry Potter series is a list of seven books about Harry Potter’s year at the magical school Hogwarts of witchcraft and wizards.
Harry Potter and the sorcerer Stone
It is also called the Philosopher’s Stone. It described Harry potter leaning that he was a wizard on his tenth birthday. That was also when the decision was made to send him to Hogwarts, which was a prestigious wizards and witches institution. He went along with his Ron and Hermione and together they discovered that something uncanny was underway. They then saddled themselves with the responsibility of saving Hogwarts from the sorcerer responsible for killing Harry Potter’s parents.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
The book started with Harry Potter in his second year at Hogwarts. Series of fresh horrors and torments equally arose around this period. One of such was the activity of Gilderoy Lockhart, a new professor, who was also a spirit. He was called Moaning Myrtle and was found haunting the girls’ bathroom. One other horrific occurrence was the attention of Ginny, Ron’s younger sister as directed to Harry Potter, who was ready to do anything to get free from the unwanted attention. However, the above issues are child play compared to a situation in which an unknown someone started turning the students at Hogwarts to stone.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
The infamous Sirius Black was held a prisoner in the dreaded fortress of Azkaban for 12 straight years. He became a prisoner after being convicted of killing 13 people by placing a single curse on them. He might be a prisoner, but he was equally the heir apparent to Voldemort, the Dark Lord.
However, his imprisonment was in the past; he escaped from prison, putting Harry Potter’s life in danger, not even the consistent presence of his friends and the solid walls of his school of witchcraft could make him feel safe. The cause of his fear despite the seemingly secure enclosure of the school was the fear of having traitors around him.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
This series began with the hosting of Triwizard Tournament at Hogwarts. Not all wizards are permitted to participate except those who are above 17 years old. However, when the Goblet of Fire makes his selection at Hallowe’en, Harry’s name was among those selected by the magical cup. The consequence of his choice is that he was expected to face several death-defying tasks, dark wizards, and dragons. However, he had a brighter chance of making it through alive with the help of Hermione and Ron, his best friends.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
This series started with Harry Potter in his fifth year at the school of wizardry, Hogwarts. He was faced with several challenges every step of the way he once faced the dark threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named and also had to encounter the unreliability of the authorities of the magical world as well as the promotion of Ron Weasley to the keeper of the Gryffindor Quidditch Team
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
This series began with suspicion and secrets spreading all through the world of wizardry. The wave did not spare Hogwarts also. As far as Harry Potter was concerned the Dark Mark was borne by Malfoy, which means they have a death eater in their midst at Hogwarts. Harry will have to explore the darkest secrets of Voldemort and he will need the company of his true friends as well as powerful magic. He was equally prepared by Dumbledore as he prepared to face his destiny.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Harry had a protective charm that had kept him safe this long, but the charm is broken now. However, there is no way he could remain in hiding perpetually. The Dark Lord was not making things easy at all at the rate he was instilling fear into the hearts of virtually everyone close to Harry. And the only way to put an end to his threat was to destroy the leftover Horcruxes and Harry was preparing his mind to venture into that feat. The final battle was about starting and Harry was expected to stand his ground and have a faceoff with the enemy.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
This is also a sequel of the original series that takes place nineteen years later. While Harry was struggling with his past and not allowing the past to lay back, Albus, his youngest son had to bear the heavy load of family legacy, a legacy he never desired. Unfortunately, the past and present fused and brought the uncomfortable truth to the notice of father and son that darkness can come from unexpected places sometimes.
