    Ah, and you have my favorite still to come: Azkaban! :)
    I also don't usually like fantasy or even sci fi, Sandy, but I loved every Potter book. Easy to really imagine that world. And I so enjoyed the vividness of the characters. I hope you enjoy all of them.

    I must say that my favourite is either a toss up of The Philosopher's Stone, The Prisoner of Azkaban or The Deathly Hallows. Very hard to decide.

    Well my top 3 are:

    Azkaban
    Order of the Phoenix
    Deathly Hallows

    I really enjoyed Goblet of Fire but I thought parts of it were too long and there was sadness. I shall have to remember to use spoiler tags as Sandy and others have not read the books yet! (Even though most may have seen the films ...)

    If I had to order the films and the books, it would be like so-

    Books:
    1) Azkaban/Hallows
    2) Stone
    3) Prince
    4) Phoenix
    5) Goblet
    6) Secrets

    Films:
    1) Prince
    2) Phoenix
    3) Hallows Pt 1
    4) Hallows Pt 2
    5) Azkaban
    6) Secrets
    7) Stone

    The great thing about the Harry Potter series is that, with both the films and books, there isn't a weak link, unlike so many other franchises and film series! The rankings above have infinitesimal differences between each place!

    Glad to see a Harry Potter thread here. Growing up my first real role models nearest my age so to speak were Harry, Ron and Hermione, and I often fantasized about going on exciting and dangerous adventures like they always got to. I've been a life long lover of the books and films, the former of which really kickstarted my love affair with books and fictional heroes in general, which still burns bright today. Very few things in this world can pull at my heartstrings like my fondest memories of experiencing all that the great corridors of Hogwarts had to share in my youth. My mind was sent reeling into a swirl of deep imagination and elation, my heart would tremble at every challenge facing the terrific trio and warm at the thought of their great bond. It's a little cheesy to say it, but the books and films showed me that the greatest magic of all is friendship.

    I still get emotional listening to this track that plays in the last scene of Chamber of Secrets, one of my favorites:



    The gorgeous themes of this series always take me back, to a time when I was far happier than I could ever hope to be again. Harry Potter did that for me, and I'm thankful every day for writers like JK Rowling and characters like those three wonderful troublemakers. ;)

    I'm a huge Harry Potter fan and I'm really looking for to this. The teaser looks OK but I need to see the full theatrical tailer.

    He isn't in the title

    Yes he is : "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child". Of course, if you're talking about "Fantastic Beasts...", then he's neither in the title nor in the movie.

    Ya I was talking about Beasts I wasn't aware of the other.

    Not sure why there's a remixed version of Hedwig's theme considering the time line but I love these Rowling wizard world movies. Looking forward to seeing this.

    Apparently, "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" is set to become a big success, at least if we judge by the reactions at the previews :

    Too bad I can't (for monetary reasons) go to London this year. But here's a pic from the play, for those who are interested :

    Has anyone been to the HP world in Leavesden? If you want to burn money that's the place to go to.

    Absolutely. I went back in 2012 and was taken aback at the scale of it. Easily could have spent the entire day there (or two).

    The stage looks fantastic, though I really don't like the new designs of the house banners.
