All the Harry Potter books and movies are based in and or around a school called Hogwarts. Hogwarts is a very very large castle in the United Kingdom somewhere secret and it is very important to the whole story line. Hogwarts is a boarding school and all of the classes and dorm rooms are in houses. There are four houses, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin. Harry, Ron and Hermione were in Gryffindor. The final battle in the end was at Hogwarts and also in the first six books he attends Hogwarts.

In this movie is the end of the series and probably the best movie out of all of them. Harry, Ron and Hermione are still looking for Horcruxes and trace the last two of them back to Hogwarts. Everything goes to pot there and the final battle happens and after some unfortunate deaths and a massive scare will Harry Potter finally defeat the Dark Lord?
19 Years Later Scene ...........
Voldemort is back but no one at the ministry believes Harry and he is the only witness. During the summer Harry gets to spend some time with his beloved godfather Sirius Black and learns about the Order of the Phoenix. Once Harry is back at Hogwarts he is horrified that there is an awful ministry official working as the new defense against the dark arts teacher. Eventually the evil woman, Dolores Umbridge, starts to take over the school and putting in place useless educational decrees. Hermione and Ron, after realising that they weren't going to be taught any defensive spells when they needed it most, convince Harry to start a club for learning DADA. The club called Dumbledore's Army is taught by Harry and when Voldemort invades Harry's mind and convinces him that his godfather is in trouble, a few members of Dumbledore's army are there to help. They go to the ministry and are attacked by Death Eaters and Voldemort himself. After an unfortunate, devastating, unfair death the ministry finally believe that Voldemort is back.
In Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, the war has officially begun. The ministry has finally come to its senses and it is now involved in the efforts to stop the Dark Lord. Once at Hogwarts Harry gets a very strange potions book that was previously owned by a 'Half-Blood Prince' the book is very helpful and Harry does very well in potions with its help. Dumbledore and Harry have begun looking at memories to try and work out how to stop the Dark Lord. They start to find horcruxes, an object in which someone puts a fragment of their soul. Draco Malfoy has been set a task by the Dark Lord to somehow kill Dumbledore by the end of the school year and Snape has been assigned by Draco's mother to do the deed if Draco can't. When Harry and Dumbledore go out to find a horcrux and Dumbledore comes back increasingly weak Draco has managed to get a few death eaters into Hogwarts and there is a lot of dueling and the inevitable happens.
In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 Harry, Ron and Hermione do not return to Hogwarts but go on a mission to find and destroy all the Horcruxes and ultimately put an end to Voldemort. After Bill and Fleur's wedding they are forced into hiding at Sirius's old house and when they are forced out of there by a ministry official they are camping all over Britain looking for clues. After escaping the Death Eaters at Malfoy Manor they are at Bill and Fleur's house with a much needed Gringotts Goblin and the useful wandmaker Ollivander.

Voldemort is a very complicated character in the Harry Potter series. He is known five different names depending on who is talking to him or about him.
He Who Must Not Be Named
You Know Who
Tom Marvolo Riddle
The Dark Lord
Voldemort was born to Merope Gaunt, a descendant of Slytherin, and a muggle Tom Riddle. Merope was in madly love with Tom but he loved her someone else and if Merope's father found out he would surely kill them both. So Merope made a love potion for Tom and fell pregnant with Voldemort but as soon as she stopped giving him the potion he ran away from her. This is why Voldemort can't love or show any kind of affection; because he was made with the effects of a love potion. When Voldemort was born on the 1st of January, he was named Tom, after his father, Marvolo, after his mother's father, Riddle. Merope Gaunt died in childbirth.
Voldemort went to Hogwarts and was smart, handsome, and adored. When he was in his fifth year he opened the Chamber of Secrets, trying to rid Hogwarts of all muggleborns and managed to killed one, Moaning Myrtle. Hagrid was framed as the one who opened the Chamber and Voldemort got away with it.
Later after Voldemort left school he started making horcruxes and getting followers who like him wanted to rid the world of muggleborns and mudbloods. The first war started then and after the prophecy was made about a boy who had come to rival the Dark Lord, he goes to Godric's Hollow to kill Harry Potter. Instead, he killed James and Lily Potter and wasn't able to kill Harry Potter and this is where the story starts.
Hermione Granger is best friends with Harry Potter and Ronald Weasley and is a third of the 'Golden Trio'. She is the brains behind it all, she is top of the class and received all O's (basically an A+) in her Ordinary Wizarding Levels (exams). Hermione's parents are muggle dentist which makes her a muggleborn. She is constantly teased about it by Draco Malfoy but she tries not to let it get to her.

Hermione develops a lot during the course of the series. She starts off as the know it all with no friends, buck teeth and bushy hair but after all of their adventures and the craziness of being a teenage girl, she turns into a beautiful, smart, young witch.

The brains and bravery of Hermione save Harry and Ron in a lot of situations starting off with her getting in trouble for them for 'following the troll' to her having the idea to save them in Gringotts by jumping onto the dragon.
Ronald Weasley, or Ron as he is commonly referred to as in the series, is best friends with Harry Potter and Hermione Granger and is one third of the 'Golden Trio'. He has five older brothers and one younger sister. He has always felt unwanted and unspecial until Hogwarts where he becomes one of Harry's friends and they have all sorts of adventures.
Ron becomes more and more confident, funny and clever as the series goes on. Ron educates Harry and Hermione on everything in the wizarding world as they both grew up with muggles. Ron acts on pure instinct during a lot of their brushes with death and saves them multiple times.
Ron is very sensitive about money as he comes from quite a poor family but he never accepts Harry offers of money and he is even hesitant to accept Harry's food the first time they met on the train. Ron is very much loved by all of his friends and is a very important character in the story.
Harry Potter is the whole point of this series. It was prophesied that he would be the person to bring down the Dark Lord. So for that reason when he was a baby the Dark Lord found him and his family and killed both of his parents but when he tried to kill Harry something happened and he couldn't, but he disappeared. Harry then went to live with his muggle aunt and her husband and son, where he is shunned for being a freak.
Harry is the bravery, nobleness and humbleness of the 'Golden Trio'. His best friends Hermione Granger and Ronald Weasley are his first real friends and they are all Harry has. Together they go on countless adventures and eventually Harry learns of his fate and accepts it with such maturity and is a true hero.
Harry Potter is a series written by J K Rowling. There are 7 books in the series and eight movies have been made based on the books. Harry Potter is quite literally a world, it has been translate into 69 different languages and people all over the world love it. So here are some facts about how big Harry Potter actually is.
