Harry Potter

In 2018, Gryffindors, Slytherins, Ravenclaws and Hufflepuffs alike celebrated the 20-year anniversary of J.K. Rowling’s groundbreaking novel, Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone. Despite being rejected by not one, not two, but twelve publishers, Rowling pressed forward with her magical tale of a young wizard and enchanted the world. Over the last two decades, her story developed into a seven-part book series, an eight-part movie series, one broadway production, one studio tour, several supplementary books, various video games, one theme park expansion and an infinite number of Halloween costumes.
Rowling’s second and third books (Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban) will celebrate their 20th publication anniversary this year—their US publication, that is. As a nod to this milestone, we’re taking a closer look at the first three installments of the series and attempting to answer the timeless question:
“Which is better, book or movie?”
