When J.K. Rowling first came out with the Harry Potter books, she most likely had no clue that they would blow up as big as they did. Then the films came out and they became even more popular.

It has been nine years since the last film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, was released in theaters. Although the series is over, there are still people, both adults and children, who are obsessed with the series.

In fact, there are a few Potter fans who are so obsessed that they want to experience everything they can that deals with the series.
