It should not come as a surprise, therefore, that one of my most favorite series of all time is the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. In what ways am I constantly spellbound by the Wizarding World of Harry Potter? The answers are
Introduction The Harry Potter series follows the lives of Harry, Ron and Hermione who go through the trials and tribulations of growing up while simultaneously trying to overcome a world immersed in darkness. Over the course of ten years the series had four directors and it is evident, through the cinematography, that each director developed the maturity of the films. Due to the word constraints of this essay, all eight films and the entirety of each of the chosen films will not be analyzed; however the way a specific cinematic aspect of the series’ evolution translates through the first, third and last two films will be. The couplings of films represent key transformational moments of the series through their cinematic purposes and in some ways are contrasting reflections of each other. The development of the series begs the question, how has the cinematography of the Harry Potter series evolved in order to capture its maturing content?
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II *Spoiler Alert* With the last ever hard cover Harry Potter book being released on the 31st of July (which is in fact Harry’s Birthday) the world has gone crazy for this series once again. The author J.K Rowling teamed up with Broadway Director Jack Thorne and Broadway Play Writer John Tiffany to write this book but it really isn’t a book. It is the script for a theatre play which has been presented at Palace Theatre, London and I can expect many muggles around the world would like to see it hit the stage in their local city. However, this isn’t the only new release to be part of the Harry Potter Series with 3 new e-Books being released on Pottermore, a website owned by Rowling’s herself. If the wasn’t enough for the much loved book and film saga another movie is also being released this
They were also the ego and shadow in the entire Harry Potter series. First, we could focus on Harry, the ego. We can see that Harry absolutely had traits of hero--brave, clever, and full of sympathy. Whereas, he still had imperfect parts. For instance, his was a little brash that he would shout to his friend who misunderstood him.
Maybe he should give him a world map? Or perhaps an old book by one of Potter’s favourite authors, like Charles Dickens? No, anyone could think of those gifts. He decided to make a list in his head, of things Potter liked and things he didn’t. Things Potter likes: • Reading • Reading the
This is where he finds out that he is famous in the wizarding community, for defeating Voldamort as a baby. He soon settles into Hogwarts and makes two close friends, Ron and Hermione. The novel depicts his journey through his first year at school, along with the magical trials and battles that go with it. I will be discussing the marketing phenomena of “conspicuous consumption” within Harry Potter. Although Harry Potter is set in a fantasy world, there are many situations within the novel which relate to and are relevant in today’s society.
The Harry Potter series have been an interesting series for me ever since I have enrolled in Professor Fox’s class. I personally have not read any of the Harry Potter series during my childhood, but once I have enrolled in Professor Fox’s class I have recently just finished Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Throughout my readings of these two books I have had many observations on certain aspects of the story that I would not have noticed when I was younger. These three aspects that I can’t imagine as a child noticing is how the Dursleys abused Harry, the stance on gender, and prejudgement based on appearance.

INTRODUCTION Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is the final installment of the Harry Potter series, wrapping up an epic fantasy based world story that surrounds the main protagonist Harry Potter and antagonist Voldemort. In the final book, Rowling is able to showcase her sense of feminism through female characters in the book. Although the book is based around the male hero Harry Potter, Rowling surrounds him with strong powerful women whom become mother figures to him. In addition to surrounding the main protagonist with strong women, Rowling also includes a handful of female antagonist to display the darker side of women, and show the reader the two sides of the female spectrum. The series as a whole includes many female characters that shatter the stereotypical representations of women in literature, where role
