Harry Potter is a character in J.K. Rowling's books. Harry James Potter was born on July 31, 1980. Harry's magical purpose was known almost before his birth. Harry Potter had many adventures in his life, during which he solved riddles and fought the forces of evil.
"Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" is the first book about Harry's fantasy adventures. Its author is the British writer J.K. Rowling. In the American version, the book has the following title - "Harry Potter and the Sage's Stone". It was first published on July 30, 1997 in London. A feature film of the same name was shot based on the book of the British writer.
One of the first editions of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was auctioned off for $ 18,000 in London. This event dates back to 2007. The buyer chose to remain anonymous. Interestingly, the estimated cost of this book ranged from ten to fourteen thousand dollars.
In 2000, a casting was announced for three main roles in the film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. The announcement was posted in May on the official website of the upcoming film. Anyone who met the following conditions could try their hand: age from nine to eleven years old and British origin (J.K. Rowling was against attracting actors from other countries). The children had to read aloud one of the pages of the book (the one that was offered to them) and play the scene of the arrival of future students at the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The best candidates in the third stage of selection were asked to read some pages from the developed script.
In August 2001, it was announced who would star in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. The choice fell on the almost unknown Britons Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint. An interesting fact is that in the summer of 2000, rumors spread that the leading role - Harry Potter - would be a young American actor Liam Aiken. It got to the point that he arrived in the UK and even received an offer to play the role of Harry Potter. But the very next day after the official announcement, J.K. Rowling withdrew this offer. She insisted that the actor be British.
The role of Dumbledore was played by two actors. In the Harry Potter adventure series, Dumbledore was indeed played by two actors: Richard Harris (the first two films; he died in 2002) and Michael Gambon.
In the US, the film was released under the title "Harry Potter and the Magic Stone". Unlike the rest of the world. In this regard, some difficulties arose. In particular, related to the fact that the actors during the film had to duplicate scenes in which the philosopher's stone was mentioned, in order to call it a magic stone.
"Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" premiered in the fall of 2001. To be more precise, on November 16, 2001. This happened a little later than planned (July 4, 2001). The reason for this was the great time constraint.
The dark lord will either be defeated, or he himself will defeat the one who is born at the end of July 1980. It was a prophecy. According to him, the parents of the boy, who was supposed to be born at the very end of the second summer month, dared to challenge Voldemort 3 times. They remained alive all three times. On July 31, 1980, Harry Potter and Neville Longbottom were born - both boys fell under the conditions of this prophecy.
After the birth of Harry, mortal danger hung over him. It came from Lord Voldemort, who somehow recognized part of the prophecy. The Lord chose Harry to destroy him.
Harry Potter's parents tried their best to protect their son. James and Lily in October 1981 in order to protect against Voldemort, the Trust Spell was activated. But here's the bad luck. The Guardian of the Secret, which was to become Sirius Black, was chosen on his own advice, Peter Pettigrew. The latter proved to be a spy and a traitor. Peter told the Dark Lord where Harry was. Voldemort's attack on the Potter family occurred on October 31, 1981 (when Harry was one year and three months old). The first to die was the father of the mysterious boy. Mother - Lily - could have stayed alive if she had not defended her child.
Mother's love saved Harry Potter. All her love for her son was reflected in Lily's deed, and this love created protection for Harry - the spell of Voldemort, hitting the boy, was reflected in the opposite direction and almost killed the Dark Lord himself. By this, young Harry defused Voldemort for many years. True, the event left a mark on Harry Potter's forehead - a lightning-shaped scar.
Harry was left at the door of the house. Dumbledore, being a good wizard and at the same time director of the Hogwarts School (School of Witchcraft and Wizardry), learned that the house in which little Harry was, had been turned into ruins. Dumbledore sent Hagrid there in order to save the remaining one child. Hagrid unexpectedly met Sirius - Harry's godfather. He asked if he could take the child to his upbringing, but was refused. Hagrid was strictly ordered to take Harry to Dumbledore. Then Sirius suggested that Hagrid use his flying motorcycle, on which the boy and Hagrid had to overcome a path lasting more than a day. Hagrid soon met on Privet Drive with Dumbledore and the Transfiguration teacher at Hogwarts (Minerva McGonagall). They decided to leave the boy at house no. 4, located on the same Privet Drive. In this house lived the relatives of the surviving boy - Vernon and Petunia Dursley (Harry's aunt and uncle).
Harry's new family hates the boy. And not only himself, but also everything related to magic. The Dursleys' own son, Dudley, shows his hatred for Harry in every possible way. Potter grows up unaware of the real fate of his parents (the story told to him says that Harry's parents died in a car accident) and his own destiny. The boy's childhood passes in a closet under the stairs, he eats only leftovers and wears out old clothes, which are very large for him. Personal oppression and complete submission always accompany Harry. And his aunt and uncle with might and main hope that thereby they can avoid the development of magical qualities in Potter. This is how the first decade of his life passes (by the way, under the slogan "don't ask questions").
Harry showed his extraordinary magical abilities in the Dursleys' house. No efforts of relatives to suppress his magical power helped to avoid this. The reason for the first manifestation of magical properties was the fact that Harry's aunt completely cut the boy's disheveled hair and this fact was terribly disliked by Potter. Harry met the next morning with the same hairdo. Once, when Dudley followed Potter with a team of his friends through the stupas, the latter got rid of the pursuit by suddenly moving to the roof of the school. Incidentally, this came as a surprise to Harry himself.
The summer of 1991 dramatically changed the way Harry lived. One day the boy received an unusual letter. I got it, but I didn't have time to read it - it was taken away. However, more and more letters come to the boy, as a result of which the worried "parents" of the Dursleys decide to run away. Together with Harry, they reach a hut on a deserted island. They still could not escape fate - exactly at midnight, when Harry Potter was eleven years old, Hagrid is to a new place. The giant tells Potter the details of his first days of life, tells him about his magical origin, and also gives the boy a letter stating his enrollment in the school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In this educational institution, Harry finds friends: Neville Longbottom, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger.
Harry Potter is a rich man. This fact surprised Harry greatly. After he and Hagrid bought all the necessary things for studying at a magic school, he still had to visit the branch of Gringgots Bank. It was this visit that brought the boy information about his wealth.
On the way to Hogwarts, Harry found both friends and enemies. Ron Weasley and his brothers became new friends. The enemy is Draco Malfoy, who was against Harry's friendship with Ron.
Harry's faculty was chosen by the distribution hat. Not certainly in that way. The distribution hat gave Potter two houses to choose from. It was Slytherin or Gryffindor. Harry Potter knew the difference between them. In particular, it consisted of prevailing values. For Slytherin, it was resourcefulness and cunning; for Gryffindor - nobility, honor and courage. In addition, at the time Harry entered the Slytherin school, he had an ominous reputation: many evil wizards and sorceresses studied at this particular faculty. Among them was Voldemort, who cruelly dealt with Harry Potter's parents. In connection with all of the above, Harry chose Gryffindor, and Ron also got here. But the unfriendly Draka began his studies in Slytherin.
Harry has an amazing talent for flying a broomstick. True, at first the broomstick often tried to throw it off. This was aided by the spells of Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor Quirrell. Thanks to his talent, Potter was accepted into the Gryffindor Quidditch team - a Seeker. Harry was very good at this. Many times he helped out the team at the most crucial moment.
Quidditch is named after the swamps. Yes Yes! It is in honor of the quidetchev swamps. This game is common in the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. All actions take place on brooms. There are four balls in the game. Two teams compete, each of which is represented by seven players. Among the latter: two beaters, three hunters, a keeper and a catcher (Harry Potter played this very role).
In the fight for the Philosopher's Stone, Harry Potter almost said goodbye to life. The Dark Lord, who was believed by almost everyone to be dead, uses the body of Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor Quireus Quirrell and returns to Hogwarts. With the hands of the professor, he wants to find the philosopher's stone. This is necessary for the Dark Lord to restore his body. Harry's best friends, Hermione and Ron, guess the location of the Philosopher's Stone and understand Quirrell's intention to steal it. A fight takes place between Quirrell and Harry. Harry manages to hold out in it until Dumbledore arrives, in this he is helped by the maternal protection that Harry has been given since childhood. The result of the battle was the death of Quirrell - the Dark Lord could not return to his body.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is the second book about the fantastic life of Harry Potter. It tells about Harry's second year at Hogwarts. Potter is warned of the danger that awaits him at school (by the elf Dobby), but decides to continue his studies there. As a result, Potter becomes a witness to mystical events and learns about the existence of a certain Chamber of Secrets.
Harry is the "heir to Slytherin". This opinion spread about Potter due to the fact that the young man showed the ability to understand snakes. It was believed that such abilities could only be possessed by evil wizards (in particular, Slytherin and Voldemort were snakemouths). However, the real heir of Slytherin was Tom Riddle, whose diary was found by Harry Potter.
"Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" premiered on December 3, 2002. It happened at the Odeon cinema in London. A whole crowd of fans, dressed as witches and under Harry, filled the theater hall long before the appointed time. The premiere was attended by almost the entire cast, including Daniel Radcliffe (who plays Harry Potter).
Tom Riddle's diary helped Harry solve the mystery of the Chamber of Secrets. From time to time, it was from her that a basilisk appeared and attacked people. Harry Potter, together with his friends, managed to get into this room. The diary was destroyed and the basilisk was killed.
"Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" is a book about the adventures of Harry Potter in his third year at Hogwarts. The plot is based on the escape of a terrible wizard from a magic prison. This was none other than a man who had betrayed Harry's parents at one time (in any case, it was thought so), and now striving at all costs to meet with Potter himself. It is in this book that Harry will meet his godfather, Sirius Black. It is he who turns out to be an escaped prisoner. The young man learns in detail the story of what happened to him in childhood. Sirius Black was able to justify himself in the eyes of Harry and his friends and became a friend of Potter himself.
The fourth Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, begins with a description of the Quidditch championship. Potter becomes a participant in a rather dangerous competition - the Triwizard Tournament. All of Potter's rivals are much older and stronger. Certain signs indicate that Voldemort must also prove himself, so Gary Potter will again have to defend his rights to life.
Harry Potter is a participant in the Triwizard Tournament. Three schools Hogwarts, Durmstrang and Beauxbatons were to take part in this tournament. The participant could be a student chosen from among those who wish to study at least in the sixth year. Harry Potter did not really satisfy these requirements (or, to be more precise, did not satisfy them at all). First, Harry had no particular desire to participate in the Tournament. Secondly, he studied only in the fourth year. The Triwizard Tournament consisted of three tasks. The first is to get the dragon egg. The second is to save Ron from under the water. The third is to find the Goblet of Fire. After going through many difficulties, Harry Potter was declared the winner of the Tournament and was awarded a thousand Galleons in connection with this.
"Goblet of Fire" has a huge number of characters. Among them: students and teachers of Hogwarts, Voldemort and his entourage, participants in the Quidditch Championship, officials from the Ministry of Magic and guests from other schools, and many other characters.
The fifth book "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" tells about the revival of the Dark Lord. Basically, this happened back in the fourth book, when Harry found the Goblet of Fire. Potter and Diggory touched him at the same time, after which they were instantly transported to the cemetery. The Dark Lord ordered Pettigrew to kill Diggory. Voldemort, however, could not destroy Harry himself - their magic wands turned out to be made from the feather of the same phoenix. However, at the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, almost no one believes what happened (mainly thanks to the Ministry of Magic, which is trying with all its might to prove that nothing happened to Voldemort). The director of the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Professor Dumbledore, is trying to prove the return of the Dark Lord.
To defeat Harry, the Dark Lord is trying to obtain a special Prophecy. Voldemort considers him a "secret weapon" against the young wizard. This Prophecy is kept at the Ministry of Magic. Harry Potter and his faithful friends have to go to this Ministry in order to neutralize a possible evil force.
Harry Potter takes on a fight with the Death Eaters. They were waiting for Harry Potter and his friends in the Department of Mysteries. The wizards from the Order of the Phoenix arrived in time to help the children fight the eaters. In a heated battle, Harry's godfather, Sirius Black, dies, it happens right in front of the young man.The Dark Lord, having learned that his wards cannot cope with the forces of Harry Potter, comes to the Ministry himself, here Harry comes face to face with him for the fourth time. Dumbledore comes to the aid of the fifteen-year-old wizard, once again saving Harry Potter from Voldemort. After this incident, no one denied the return of the Dark Lord.
"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" is the sixth book about the magical adventures of Harry Potter. Only in the sixth year of study, the magical world begins to realize that the Dark Lord has returned after all. In this regard, panic begins - everyone is seized with fear. Parents are afraid that their children, leaving for school, may be attacked by Voldemort. All residents who have anything to do with magic are afraid to even go outside.
Harry Potter is the "Chosen" wizard. This is the conclusion that many of the inhabitants of Hogwarts came to after Harry's battle with Voldemort. This popularity is not to Potter's liking. This is compounded by the pain of losing a godfather.
Harry Potter gets new appointments. First, Harry becomes the captain of the Quidditch team. Secondly, he has the opportunity to become an Auror, Potter even excels at potions.
Harry takes private lessons from Dumbledore. Voldemort was the object of these studies. Potter and Dumbledore recalled the moments of the Dark Lord's childhood and youth, looked at descriptions of various people about him. Dumbladore has a feeling that Voldemort managed to split his soul into several parts (one of them was Tom Riddle's diary). It is assumed that these fragments were put into the so-called Horcruxes by the Dark Lord. Harry and the professor go in search of one of them.
The seventh Harry Potter book completes the series of books about his adventures. The title of this book is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It was fully completed on January 11, 2007. The official version of the book was supposed to go on sale on July 21, 2007. However, it was not without incident here. Five days before the start of sales, the original scanned pages of the book appeared on the Internet and did not just appear, but were translated into several languages at once (including Russian). The online store DeepDiscount.com became the culprit for this incident. On his initiative, more than a thousand copies of the seventh book were sent to buyers before the appointed time. In Russia, the printed version of the book "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" with a total circulation of 1,800,000 copies appeared on store shelves on October 13, 2007. Interestingly, this book appeared in British stores in two versions - the cover design was different - for children it was Harry Potter diving into treasures, and for adults it was a pendant with the letter S made of precious stones.
Fans of the Harry Potter books were very afraid of the death of the protagonist at the end of the series of books about him. To their mutual delight, these fears were not justified. The seventh - final - book about Harry Potter confirms this. Harry Potter not only remained in full health, but also in happiness - he started a family, he had three children. Those lucky ones who managed to buy the long-awaited book on the first day of sale opened its end first to make sure that the case was happy. And then, calm and satisfied, they read the rest of the book.
With Harry Potter, the protective properties of the mother, given to him after her death, subside. This happened after Potter reached the age of seventeen. Now the Order of the Phoenix was to protect the young man. And Harry Potter was in for a fight with Voldemort.
Harry is wanted. The Ministry of Magic put the young man on the wanted list, suspecting him of involvement in the death of Dumbledore. Whoever brings his head is promised no less, but ten thousand gallions.
Harry is trying with all his might to destroy the evil Voldemort. Harry has to fight with a serpent, a dragon, smash the tiara to smithereens. After all, it is in the latter that the sixth part of the soul of the Dark Lord is located. When the case is almost completed, it is suddenly revealed that the last part of Voldemort's soul is in the Loss itself. Harry decides to take a desperate step, but fortunately everything is bypassed. The Dark Lord's enchantment does not work. Voldemort dies.
One of the residents of Chisinau rewrote the seventh book about Harry Potter by hand. As it turned out, she did not have enough funds to acquire her own volume. So she borrowed a version of the book from a friend and copied it by hand. By this she became known almost to the whole world.
The Harry Potter brand is worth a billion dollars. This is the conclusion reached by Forbes magazine, according to which the writer J.K. Rowling earned about a billion dollars from her books about Harry Potter. For example, just a few days after Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince went on sale, the author's budget increased by forty-five million dollars. J.K. Rowling is considered by the researchers to be the richest woman in the UK.
