Harry Potter is huge. The series of novels concluded in 2007 with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but thanks to new releases like The Tales of Beadle the Bard and a series of book to movie adaptations produced by Warner Brothers Pictures, the Potter series is far from dead.
The story of the Harry Potter books (and the movies and video games that are based on them) revolves around a kid named Harry Potter. Harry lost his parents when he was merely 1 year old. At the time, a dark wizard named Voldemort struck fear into the hearts of witches and wizards around Great-Britain, where the story takes place. One night, Harry's parents are visited by the notorious Voldemort, who swiftly and ruthlessly murders them. Miraculously, Harry manages to survive the deadly "Avada Kedavra" curse, and the spell backfires, incapacitating Voldemort and leaving Harry with a lightning bolt scar on his forehead. The main events of the series begin eleven years after the Potters' tragic deaths, when their son Harry learns that he is a wizard and enrolls at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
There have been many spin-off games and games based directly on the books and movies, and EA has developed a video game adaptation to accompany the release of each movie.
