So, in dedication to all the cool witches and wizards, here’s a list of some tiny whiny details in the Harry Potter series you probably missed.
The ‘Boy Who Lived’ captured fans all over the world since the release of the first movie in 2001, grossing $978 million at the box office worldwide. The seven sequels ended with 8 movies in 2011. It has already been 9 years but the number of fans are only increasing.
One in A Hundred YouTube videos describing Harry Potter theories have some peculiar connotations. and my advice would be to avoid falling in the rabbit hole. Follow-ups of the Harry Potter series, the Fantastic Beasts, also have gained a lot of attention although they are not as astounding, according to reviews. The third of the series is to be released on November 12, 2021, in Ireland. The whole series of Fantastic Beasts was directed by David Yates, the same director who directed the later four movies of Harry Potter.

#2 Snape’s First Confrontation With Harry And His Hidden Message
When they first meet at the Potions class, Harry isn’t looking at Professor Snape which makes him think he is not paying attention but Harry is actually writing down everything he says. For one of the questions Snape asks Harry, Harry can’t tell the answer to one, and not-so-surprisingly Hermoine does. This particular question is related to his mother. Snape asks Harry if he knows what would result in adding the powdered roots of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood.
