Harry Potter is a hugehit. There is no doubt about it! For all the “Potterheads”, Harry Potter is never-ending. The final book was released in 2007 and the final movie was released in 2011. However, Harry Potter fandom has never subdued in all those years. With the release of the new book, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”, the Potter fans got a new reason to celebrate. They were waiting for this badly- a new Harry Potter book; it didn’t matter that it was not written by J.K. Rowling. Harry Potter is here to stay, for years to come. For hard-core Harry Potter fans, Harry Potter is a sensitive topic and here are few things that one should never ever say to a Harry Potter fan:
- That the films are better than the books
For a Harry Potter fan, all those hundreds of pages are very important. Those pages can never be converted into a 2-hour film. Something will always remain missing that should have been included in the movie. Visual effects, screenplay, and the graphics are all secondary.
- Fred and George are not even that funny
Fred and George bring life to the books. They are the ones whose one-liners can just make your day. If you don’t find Fred and George funny, you have no sense of humor. Period.
- That Hogwarts doesn’t exist
Hogwarts is home. Every Potterhead would be secretly wishing that they would one day get a Hogwarts letter. For making this dreams come true, Harry Potter studios have been constructed in London and Orlando. Here, you can take a stroll in Diagon Alley, dine in the Great Hall and actually play Quidditch.
- Quidditch is not even a sport
If Quidditch is not a sport, then even football is not a sport. There have been instances where people have actually tried out playing Quidditch for real.
- Harry potter is for children
Sure maybe J.K. Rowling did write the first book keeping in mind teenagers as her audience but as the plot progressed that was not the case at all. It is a series which will remain in your heart forever even if you are the 80s. Once a Potterhead, always a Potterhead.
- Why are you so obsessed with Harry Potter?
Because magic is captivating. Harry Potter is captivating. The idea that such a magic world can actually exist is captivating.
- I did start reading the book but it was sort of boring
That is nothing less than an insult for those who are totally in love with Harry Potter series. For them, Harry Potter is a part of their lives and they have grown up reading the books. But for someone who actually has no idea about the series, the idea of spells, magic, and wizards might be weird sounding.
- Harry potter is over
Magic always lives on. And as JK Rowling said in her final speech, “The stories we love best do live in us forever so whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.”
- I have never read the books and I never will
Well, then you are definitely missing out something epic. And since you have never read the books, don’t give an opinion about something you have never experienced.
