Harry Potter

 

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has been huge for pretty much all parties involved. J.K. Rowling became a household name for her story that simply started as a bedtime story for her kid, and then all of a sudden became a global phenomenon with the books and the subsequent movies.

Just to paint a better picture on how big Harry Potter is, the books have sold 450 million worldwide, and translated into over 70 languages.

The gist of the story is, in case you’re one of those people who never read one of the books, or saw the movies, the novels (and movies) chronicle the life of a young wizard, Harry Potter (portrayed in the movies by Daniel Radcliffe), and his friends Hermione Granger (portrayed in the movies by Emma Watson) and Ron Weasley (portrayed in the movies by Rupert Grant), all of whom are students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The main story arc concerns Harry's struggle against Lord Voldemort (portrayed in the movie by Ralph Fiennes), the Dark wizard who intends to become immortal, overthrow the Ministry of Magic, subjugate non-magical people and destroy anyone who stands in his way.

Just another clue on how big Harry Potter was (still is), the movies generated $10 billion.

The movies were also a brilliant ensemble of A-list actors. In addition to the headliners, other actors gracing the Wizarding-World of Harry Potter included Gary Oldman, Robbie Coltrane, Robert Pattinson, and the late Alan Rickman who played Severus Snape...all just to name a few.

Enter Funko, who have been introducing a various number of Harry Potter collectibles into their line of toys, starting with the Pop! Vinyls and working their way into Dorbz.
