Harry Potter

The Harry Potter movie series is one of


the most successful film franchises ever. All of
the films have been critically well received.
The third, and last films of the series are
arguably considered to be the best; on Rotten
Tomatoes, they currently score 91% and 96%.
This movie franchise was based on the
extremely popular Harry Potter book series, by
J.K. Rowling. The series follows a boy named
Harry Potter, through the course of seven
years. On his eleventh birthday, he discovers
that he is a wizard. Later, throughout his years
at Hogwarts, a school for wizards and witches,
he discovers that he is destined to defeat the
dark Lord Voldemort. Finally, at the end of the
series, when he is seventeen, he achieves this.
The piece Hedwigs Theme, by John Williams
comes from the movies. Even though John
Williams only composed the music for the first
three Harry Potter films, this theme was
utilized throughout the entire franchise. The
Harry Potter music was also nominated for an
Academy Award twice: Once for Harry Potter
and the Philosophers Stone, and secondly for
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
John Williams wrote both of these scores.
