You'll probably even see a few Writing Wednesday posts in the future that touch on or are influenced by the frawesomesauceness that is J.K. Rowling and the unforgettable world that she's built.
I was literally in tears yesterday as I watched the cast make their rounds and talk to the press during the live premiere in London yesterday afternoon during #harrypotterlive. For a recap of the events, you can view the videos here.
I've never encountered a series that has brought so much to the lives of so many around the world. The fight between good and evil, as well as the strength of friendship, loyalty, and love, have never been tested in such a way that has reached out to fans of all ages. I've grown up to Harry Potter (okay, it really took up most of my 20's, but seriously...isn't that usually when we all grow up anyway? LOL) and now that the series has come to its official end with the final film, it does kind of tug at the ol' heartstrings a bit. I could probably go on and on with this post because there's just so much more I'd like to say, but if you've been following the books and the movies and everything in between, I'll bet that you already know how I feel without my having to say it. So I leave you with the trailer for the 8th and final film...
Are you a fan of the series? What were some of your favorite moments in the books/movies?
