5 Snape And Lilly, The Romance That Never Was

Only in the world of fan-made art could we have ever truly seen these two together this way. The tragic final revelation about Professor Snape’s life shocked audiences when the discovered his secret love for Harry’s mother. It was a one-sided affair however, and in no way does it appear that Lilly ever cared for snape in this way. As far as we know, Snape never cared for anyone else either.

The piece itself is beautifully done and gives us a convincing glimpse at what might have been in another life.

It’s the kind of image Snape may have imagined sadly for years knowing it could never happen. The hues of black and red across this one give off a bittersweet aura that captures perfectly what the scene should be. It’s a romance, but it’s a tragedy as well.

Natali W (aka @nala_zeichnet) from Germany

This beautiful sketch of an ornate key with wings represents the Flying Key scene towards the end of the first film, where Harry must use his Quidditch skills to locate a certain key to unlock the path to the Philosopher’s Stone.

What inspired you to create this artwork?

I put this picture on paper because I wanted to give the little things in Harry Potter a bigger focus, because I’m in love with detail. I used to fall in love with the flying keys and so I created my very own key.

Do you remember the first time you watched Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone?

I remember exactly how I sat in the cinema, I was so excited. The film captivated me at the first second, it was magical, as it has never existed before in this way. I absorbed all impressions so that I fell even more into the world of Harry and to this day, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is my favorite.

Ramya C (aka @creating_maya) from India

Ramya has created this gorgeously detailed sketch of the Hogwarts Great Hall doors – we can almost feel the crackle of magic behind them!

What inspired you to create this artwork?

To me, this door was the entrance to another world, the world of endless possibilities and the world of escape. So it was a reminder of my first visit to Warner Bros. Studio Tour. I remember standing before the door and thinking wow, I am finally here – home at last. I found no better way to immortalise that moment than to sketch it in my own specific way. And Voila!

Do you remember the first time you watched Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone?

The first time I watched Philosopher’s Stone was when I was 10. Almost 20 years ago. It was at home, during the summer, on the telly. That was all it took to make me fall in love with this world. Ironically, I started the books after the movies. They’ve both been such a huge part of my life and they will never stop being one. Even as I remember that I am going to turn 30 in a month, I still jump at the chance to watch Harry get off the boat and enter the castle. After all this time? Always.

Harry Potter Birthday Party Herbology Class

I was so pleased with my idea for this class, and even more pleased that the girls loved it. Just like in Harry Potter, we repotted mandrakes. Also known in the Muggle world as succulents.

I found adorable owl succulent pots on Amazon, and then picked up mini succulents and potting soil at Home Depot. The girls took turns adding potting soil to the owl pots, repotting their “mandrakes” and then watering them with a medicine dropper.

The girls were very pleased with their potted mandrakes and excited to learn these were also a party favor they got to take home.

Tip – we had this class outside, so I didn’t have to worry about any mess-making. 

Lord Voldemort

Lord Voldemort is a dark wizard who killed Harry’s parents. He also tried to kill Harry when the latter was a one-year-old boy but failed miserably. He is never addressed by name, as the entire wizarding world fears him deeply even after his disappearance. Except for Dumbledore, and eventually Harry, everyone refers to him as ‘You Know Who’.

During his reign, he was responsible for several killings, disappearances and other fearful stories that still plague the wizarding world. He possesses Professor Quirrell to try and get the Philosopher’s Stone to return to his bodily form but fails eventually.

The United Kingdom

Old UK Harry Potter edition

This is the very first edition of Harry Potter series that was ever published! These original covers were done by the Bloomsbury team in 1997 and we also know that Thomas Taylor did the illustrations. They look pretty good and neat for those years, don’t you agree? But do you know what makes these UK Harry Potter book covers very popular and attractive? The fact that Australia, Canada and India chose to also use them.

New UK Harry Potter edition

The same Bloomsbury publishing house decided to remake the Harry Potter book covers in 2014, and they really did an amazing job. We’ve heard that Jonny Duddle is the guy that did the illustration part. From my point of view, the new edition looks way more awesome than the previous one! They visually represent the important moments within the plot better and are more vivid and realistic. These polished new covers also invite you to step into the Harry Potter world!

Professor Snape

Severus Snape is a teacher at Hogwarts. He teaches Potions. He has greasy hair and almost always wears a cloak with a cape. He is described as looking like an ‘overgrown bat.’ Harry first sees him at the school feast, and Harry’s scar immediately begins to hurt. Harry has a hunch that Snape is a sinister person and is up to something. He also gets the feeling that Snape hates him for some reason. It turns out to be true.

Snape constantly torments Harry and keeps belittling him throughout the school year. He also picks on Neville Longbottom and sometimes Ron and Hermione. He is also the teacher in charge of the Slytherin house and he constantly favors Draco and other Slytherins.

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallow Part-1 Posters (2010)

1. Theatrical Info

The movie released on 19 November of 2010. They were rated 78% on Rotten Tomatoes, but I think they make mistakes sometimes.

2. The Deathly Collection

The movie made over $900 million (I really don’t know why they don’t make more or less than that amount) on a budget of around $250 million.

I know, I know… you don’t give a shit about my opinion but I really think that this one is the worst of them all.

4. The Darkest One

This one is the darkest of them all. In both ways, say it in the sense of colors of the movie or the storyline. I consider this as a reason for hating this installment of the movie series.

5. What Dumbledore’s Wand Made Of?

J.K. Rowling once said that she feared only one question, which is, “What Dumbledore’s Wand made of?”. She continued, “I had this elder thing in my mind, cause elder has this association in folklore, it’s the dead tree.” However, no one asked her this question ever. And, yes, that is Hogwarts in the poster.

6. The Best Villain

I don’t know if I should, but I love this character named Bellatrix Lestrange. She is like a mixture of Captain Jack Sparrow and the Joker. Helena Bonham Carter played the character.

7. A Lovely Twist

J.K. Rowling herself admitted it that she should have made the lovely pair of Hermione and Harry fall in love with each other and she regrets it. However, I think she was absolutely right while doing it as we all thought at the beginning that they both will fall in love with each other and it surprised us.

8. Fan Theory

Hermione Granger ends up falling in love with Ron Weasley. Although the author admits her mistake, fans are there to cover for her. According to fan theory, Hermione did love Harry, but she was afraid that he will die which will eventually result in heartbreak. So, she chose Ron. Ron will definitely not happy knowing it.

9. Avada Kedavra (Or Abra Ka Dabra)

There are many magical spells in the movie and this is my the third favorite spell. While watching the movie, I thought they are saying “Abra Ka Dabra”, but then I realized how could they use this type of kids spell to kill the most powerful man on the earth.

10. A Great Ending

Although, I said the movie was the worst one I really loved the ending. There is a time when just want to quit the movie, to stop the torture, but then comes a time when you only want to leave all your work and just watch the movie. I would recommend watching the movie only after a good sleep.

2 Altogether In Diagon Alley

via (ry-spirit)

Last but by no means least on our list of awesome artwork, we have a mix of some of our favorite characters mingling and laughing together in Diagon Alley. It’s a warm-hearted picture celebrating the happier times that Harry and his friends experienced together. Every corner of this piece has a familiar face to look at and everyone is expressing themselves in their own unique way. As dark and terrifying as things get in the world of Harry Potter, scenes like this are what make fans love the world for everything that it is.

Fanart is a creative celebration of works we admire. When we imagine new ways of experiencing the characters we’ve invested our hearts in, this is the kind of result that we can get. As long as there are people creating and means of sharing, we’ll always have more work like this to enjoy.

Watercolor tattoos fit many source images from Harry Potter, whether it’s supporting the black ink of the lightning bolt scar and Harry’s glasses, or ore stylized versions of the Golden Snitch and Deathly Hallows.

The ‘wispy’ arrangement of flow and looser bordering shapes allow for bright color splashes across the central image – complementing the detail or linework in each tattoo focal point nicely.

1 The Shapeshifter: Severus Snape

The allegiances and missions of the Hero and the Shadow are crystal clear, but changeability, uncertainty, and unclear loyalties are the defining traits of the Shapeshifter, and Severus Snape embodies that grey zone beautifully.

His past as a Death Eater in service of Voldemort, his dripping dislike of Harry, and his antipathy toward Harry’s dead father James and his godfather Sirius on the one hand, and Albus Dumbledore’s unflinching trust in him on the other, Snape keeps us guessing at who he really serves.

More From Charlie Griffin

Professor Quirrell

Professor Quirinus Quirrell is a teacher at Hogwarts. He teaches Defense Against the Dark Arts. Harry first meets him at the Leaky Cauldron. Professor Quirrell is described as a very nervous and constantly stuttering wizard who had some bad experiences with vampires during his trip to Albania. He wears a turban that smells funny and many students posit that he hides garlic in the turban to ward off vampires.

Professor Quirrell is the one who informs the headmaster of the troll in the dungeons. Harry thinks that Professor Snape bullies Professor Quirrell to get something out of him, which turns out to be false at the end of the book.

The Deathly Hallows are three highly powerful magical objects created by Death and granted in trickery to the Peverill brothers. The Deathly Hallows symbol is a circle, line, and triangle combined. These represent the three Deathly Hallows: the circle is the Resurrection Stone, the line is the Elder Wand, and the triangle is the Cloak of Invisibility.

Anyone possessing all three of the artifacts will be the Master of Death. When joined, the Deathly Hallows form an important symbolic image the HP fan and tattoo fraternity has come to adopt in magnificently different ways.

The Deathly Hallows Symbol was mentioned only a handful of times in book and film format but is one of the most inked inspirations from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. As these examples show, a Deathly Hallows tattoo can be versatile in color, application, and technical style.


Can Dumbledore see the future?

No, Dumbledore cannot see the future. However, he could predict to a certain extent, the outcomes in the near future and plan ahead wherever necessary. He had a feeling that the Philosopher’s Stone may get stolen, so he asked Hagrid to collect it from Gringotts. Similarly, he could read people quite well and tell if something significant lay at store, probably better than anyone else could.

Who is the first student from Hogwarts that Harry meets in the book?

Draco Malfoy is the first student that Harry meets in Madam Malkin’s shop. Although Ronald Weasley is probably the most memorable one, and the first friend he makes, Harry meets Draco before Ron. However, he doesn’t like Draco very much in their first meeting. So, when Draco later extends his hand in friendship, Harry rejects him.

How does Professor McGonagall turn into a cat?

Professor McGonagall is a licensed Animagus which means that she is certified by the Ministry of Magic to be in either her human form or cat form at will. She is also an exceptional witch with great skills in Transfiguration. She uses magic to transform into a cat and even has markings near the eyes very similar to her glasses when she turns into a cat.

Ekaterina has perfectly immortalised the moment where the Dursleys realised they really couldn’t escape from magic… when Hagrid gifts Dudley with a pig tail!

What inspired you to create this artwork?

This artwork was created through participation of the #potterweekprompts hashtag. This time, our theme was transformation. I didn’t want to draw something like a werewolf or Transfiguration class with Professor McGonagall – and then I remembered this funny scene.

Do you remember the first time you watched Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone?

Actually no, I was so young. Moreover, I have a tradition to rewatch all Harry Potter movies every year when New Year is coming, so my impressions are blurred a little bit.

15 The Portrait Of Godric Gryffindor

Here’s one from a character we never got to see portrayed in any other way but his name before now: the founder of Gryffindor house, and one of the four founders of Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft and Wizardry. As much as his namesake appears across the Harry Potter universe, there isn’t any official representation of the man himself that I know of.

This fact has left an open window for fans to portray the man in any way the can imagine.

This portrait is very skillfully painted with very clear details on the appearance of Mr. Gryffindor. At first glance, one might confuse him with a more robust version of Dumbledore with his slightly gray hair and beard. Obviously, the artist chose to incorporate the characteristics of Gryffindor house with the actual look of the character. The infamous sword of Gryffindor is here too, giving more authenticity to the piece overall.

The Lewis Chess Pieces

In the first book of the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Ron introduces Harry to the magical game of Wizard Chess – a slightly more violent version of the classic game, where pieces are enchanted and defeat often results in being smashed to bits.

Did JK Rowling get her inspiration for the style of the characters from the Lewis Chess Pieces on display in the National Museum of Scotland?

Dating from the late 12th – early 13th century, the 11 pieces on display were part of a large hoard buried on Lewis and discovered in 1831. Remarkable in their carved detail, each piece is different and they remain one of the most intriguing items in the museum.

Harry Potter Birthday Party Decorations

Transforming our home into Hogwarts castle for the party included turning the dining area into the Great Hall, a nod to the castle portraits, flying keys, a display from Honeydukes and Moaning Myrtle hanging out in the bathroom.

Partygoers were welcomed by the Hogwarts crest flying on a banner on the front door.

Inside the front door they found themselves in the third-floor corridor, you know the one that was off-limits in Sorcerer’s Stone. (It also was a great way to keep kids out of the playroom for the day.) Overhead, flying keys swirled about and my daughter’s broomstick lay in the corner ready to take flight.

The flying keys were so simple but made such an impact. I bought these inexpensive keys on Amazon and used this printable for wings. Tip – I printed them on vellum paper, which gave them a cool translucent look so you could see the wing pattern from both sides. Then I hung them from the chandelier with monofilament. So pretty.

I transformed our family gallery wall into a gallery wall of Hogwarts professors. I found all of the professor’s images online and cropped them square to fit in my frames. Below the gallery wall, I used Harry Potter books and other various things we had to decorate the table.

Probably the most dramatic decoration was the floating candles hanging over the great hall. Everyone loved the way these looked, even my husband who painstakingly hung all 24 of them above the table from our 14-foot ceiling. I used toilet paper rolls, hot glue, white acrylic paint, white paper, battery-operated tea lights and monofilament to create the look.

Because we wanted it to look like guests were dining in the Great Hall, we used these plastic gold-rimmed plates and served Butterbeer and Pollyjuice potion in these plastic mugs.

Recipes coming soon.

I used the same wings from the flying keys to turn Ferrero Rocher candies into Golden Snitch.

And, of course, a Happy Birthday banner in House colors.

The coolest party element was the Daily Prophet with a moving photo of Harry Potter over the Honeydukes display. I wish I could create a tutorial to make it because it really is spectacular, but he basically hacked a promotional video player he received to play a loop from the movie. Then he edited an image of the Daily Prophet he found online to hold the right size image and placed it all in a frame.

The kids, and adults, couldn’t get over this detail.

16 Winter Solstice

It’s a clear and quiet day at Hogwarts. Winter has come and the snow is falling gently from the sky. It’s just after dusk and it’s cold.

Walking alone together through the forest are Harry Potter and… Draco Malfoy?

Probably not something likely to have happened in the official story canon, but in the depths of a fan’s imagination, anything is possible. There is actually quite a lot of Draco and Harry content on the internet for anyone who’s ever wanted to see the two of them closer together.

What makes this one stand out is simply the beautifully picturesque setting our characters are in. It feels like a cold and quiet winter night with two people walking alone. They aren’t fighting or arguing from the look of things, they’re just walking peacefully side-by-side.

3 Pro Tips for Your Wizarding World of Harry Potter Itinerary

Now that you have your own personalize Wizard World of Harry Potter Itinerary, let’s go through a few tips for your trip.

  1. If you really want a wizard wand, consider getting it from one of the merchandise carts versus going to Ollivanders. Adults are rarely chosen to take part in the show, and the line to get in here can be very long.
  2. Butterbeer comes in a variety of items, from frozen and hot beverages, fudge and ice cream. Be sure to try them all before leaving the park.
  3. Wearing those wizarding robes always look fun, especially since you can show off your house colors, but they are incredibly hot. A better way to show off your house pride is to dress in those colors in a more theme-park-friendly way, like a t-shirt and comfortable shorts.

Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft And Wizardry

Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts, teach us something, please…

I am absolutely in love with this picture, and I’ll be damned if it doesn’t stay on my desktop wallpaper for the next few months. Even without the fact that this is Hogwarts we’re talking about, I love the castle itself and the colors in this photo, the gray and cloudy sky with the street lamps and the Gothic Gargoyle statues. But who am I kidding? There’s no way you could mistake Hogwarts for just a random castle. It’s shown here in its beauty and majesty as well as in its mystery. 

Full disclosure: if you’re as easily distracted as I am, you might actually end up staring at it all day long and have no work done on your PC, so watch out!

Not for Muggles? Yep, you need to be a wizard ‘Arry, if you want to handle these devices, potions, or spell ideas in this cool range of designs. I like the breadth of technical application across the group, they are equally strong in fine detail or bright color as they are with minimalist design and simple linework. They allow the viewer’s knowledge of Potter lore to connect the dots, with one wave of the wand, or circuit on the broomstick

19 Bellatrix Lestrange In Her Element

Possibly the most sinister and demented witch among the Death Eaters, we see Bellatrix Lestrange here digitally painted in all her dark glory. The green hue of magic we see swirling around from her wand perfectly fits with the kind of magic we might actually see emanating from the woman. You can clearly see the wickedness inside of her eyes and smile here as well.

Bellatrix is clearly some sort of high-functioning sociopath.

There is no question that she enjoys inflicting pain and has little to no remorse for anyone. As one of the scariest of the group, it’s fitting to see her surrounded by darkness and clearly comfortable there. Slight gray splatters emitting from around her upper body give her an eerie kind of glow. If you’re ever facing a sight like this in person, it could very well be the last thing you ever see.

It doesn’t take a dopey Death Eater to realize these realistic portraits are applied by skillful tattoo artists. In color or black and gray, they show off central characters with great attention to detail, whether it’s the greasy menace of Snape and Bellatrix in combination, or the nose-less visage of old Voldy about to waggle his wand and end some poor soul’s existence. Personally though, the tattoo of Sirius Black, resplendent in a paisley waistcoat and plum colored shirt gets the thumbs up from me.

These tattoo examples take on the Houses of Hogwarts, and depictions of the school itself. The tattoo of the snow globe is amazing, showing off detail in application, from the Deathly Hallows symbol in the border to the glowing lights of the school at night. I like how each tattoo artist has opted to utilize some personality in the details, such as the ring of Slytherin.

Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets Posters (2002)

1. Theatrical Info

The release date of the movie was 3 November 2002. It was out in the cinema much sooner than the expectation of the audience. Makers made and released the movie soon after the release of the first installment because they were afraid that the kids will grow up.

The movie bagged over $850 million on a budget of $100 million.

3. What Is Galleon

You muggle, don’t know about Galleon? Knut, Sickle, and Galleon are a wizarding currency which is bronze, silver, and gold respectively and hence in increasing order.

4. Who Is Muggle?

You Muggle, don’t know about Muggle? Muggle is a term used in the movie to refer anyone who doesn’t know anything about magic and wizarding.

5. Adobe, I mean, a Dobby!

No, this is not Gollum from Lord Of The Rings, although I always thought so, that guy is much more disgusting than him. Dobby is a servant of the Malfoy family, and I really don’t know what he has to serve, he always spoils every work, until it all ends.

6. Serpensortia

Want a pet snake, shout out the title aloud. The movie includes all kind of fantasy creatures and from fantasy creatures, I remembered something. Let’s talk about that in the end of the post. Serpensortia is a spell, which is used to create snakes. Yeah, I know that info was really useless for you.

7. Parseltongue

Parseltongue, which is hard just to pronounce, is a language of snakes and Harry Potter is fluent in it. Although some of its references are shown in the first part, it is focused on this one. How does he know this language? You will get to know about it in the movies.

8. This Shot Was Too Expensive

There is a scene where Harry and Ron crash Mr. Wesley’s car. The car was Ford Anglias, and 14 Anglias were destroyed just for that one scene.

9. Quidditch

Although, you have already seen them playing Quidditch game, which is the game focused on a flying ball, in the first movie but does you know that this has become an actual game now. People play it in the different parts of the world, however, they just hold the broom with their one hand, as they are Muggles only. I can imagine how funny it would be to see them playing it.

10. All Exams Have Been Cancelled

There cannot be happier ending when at the end of the movie the headmaster say that all the exams have been canceled. Dumbledore announces that “In the light of recent events, as a school treat, all exams have been canceled” and everyone applauded. Destroy my whole school building, they will make us sit on the road and write the answer sheet.

Tactile Imagery

Tactile imagery in this book often represents the unexpected—whether horrifying, gratifying, or merely awkward. When characters feel something touch their bodies, this sensation reveals something about their relationship with their environment that they were too preoccupied or unaware to notice before. Sometimes this is benign, like Ginny putting her elbow in the butter dish; sometimes it is awful, like being seized by a giant spider; and sometimes it is wonderful, like the feeling of Fawkes and the Sorting Hat brushing Harry’s face as they help him in the Chamber. A few examples:

“She nodded, blushing to the roots of her flaming hair, and put her elbow in the butter dish” (p. 44).

“Then, with a thrill of horror, he realized that someone was sponging his forehead in the dark” (p. 176)

“Harry blundered up the corridor, barely noticing where he was going, he was in such a fury. The result was that he walked into something very large and solid, which knocked him backward onto the floor.‘Oh, hello, Hagrid,’ Harry said, looking up” (p. 201).

“Something wet touched Harry’s hand and he jumped backward, crushing Ron’s foot, but it was only Fang’s nose” (p. 273).

Neville Longbottom

Neville Longbottom is a round-faced and constantly scared boy who is in Harry’s class. Harry and Ron first meet him when Hermione accompanies Neville in search of his toad Trevor and enters Harry and Ron’s compartment to search for it.

Neville is slightly clumsy and has a difficult time with a lot of everyday activities. His grandmother sends him a ‘Remembrall’ to help him remember if he’s forgotten something. He is constantly bullied by Draco Malfoy and other Slytherins. Neville falls from his broom during their first flying lessons. Towards the end of the book, however, Neville shows some signs of bravery when he fights Draco for making fun of him and also stands up to Harry, Ron and Hermione when they try to break the school rules.

Rafaela C (aka @rafaela.ct) from Brazil

Rafaela has gone straight to the title for the inspiration of this piece: it’s the glorious Philosopher’s Stone itself!

What inspired you to create this artwork?

This year I was a part of a yearly drawing challenge called Inktober in which artists all over the world follow a prompt list for each day of October. This artwork was inspired by the prompt “alchemy” that made me instantly think of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I actually watched the movie while I was drawing for some further inspiration and because I love it so much!

Do you remember the first time you watched Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone?

Yes! I was about 4 years old and I remember becoming instantly obsessed with the Harry Potter universe. From that day on, I would pick up any stick that I could find and pretend it was a wand waving it and saying “Wingardium Leviosa”. Oh, I miss those days!

The rich text of author JK Rowling creates many opportunities for quotes and passages from the Harry Potter series to be immortalized in body art. Whether it’s the solemn oath from the Marauder’s Map, a passionate plea from Severus Snape, or one of the wise benedictions Dumbledore likes to feed Harry, there’s all sorts of ink featuring words from the books and movies.

These examples show off some sensational tattoo choices, offering simple spells in a range of lettering styles along with more complex quotes from the series done with color and verve.

Cassie G (aka @cassiegillespie) from Ireland

Cassie has used herself as the canvas for her 20th anniversary celebration – focusing on the journey a Hogwarts student must go on – from receiving their Hogwarts letter, to boarding the Hogwarts Express, to the eventual arrival at the school.

What inspired you to create this artwork?

I was inspired to create this artwork by the magical imagery that I saw in the movie and the books. There were some of the moments that stood out to me the most and really made me feel I was there in the magic.

Do you remember the first time you watched Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone?

Yes, I do remember the first time I watched Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. My Godmother brought both my older brother and I to the cinema to see the movie and I remember being so excited after reading the book. I really fell in love with everything the movie brought to life; the scenes, the characters, the magic. Since then, I’ve watched it more times than I can count.

Fred and George Weasley

Fred and George Weasley are identical twins and are the brothers of Ronald Weasley. They are popular for their jokes and troublemaking. They are slightly shorter and stockier than Ron but share the same bright red hair as Ron. Harry first sees them on the platform at King’s Cross Station where they confuse their mother into thinking that she can’t tell them apart.

Fred and George also console Ginny for not being able to join Hogwarts yet, and further suggest that they’ll send her a toilet seat from school. They eventually end up giving Harry a toilet seat in the hospital wing as a reward for thwarting Voldemort.

They are both beaters in the Gryffindor Quidditch team and are very friendly to Harry. They even circle around below Harry when his broom malfunctions during the Quidditch match hoping to catch him if he falls.

Hagrid Takes Center Stage

As the premier of this new ride gets closer and closer, Universal Orlando is sharing more details about the ride itself, including the fact that an animated Hagrid, Hogwarts’ gamekeeper, will take center stage.

The theme park says it has created a 7′ 6″-tall “hyper-realistic animated figure” that has 24 different body motions and facial expressions that capture the essence of Hagrid. The animatronic figure’s costume was also created by the same designers that developed the character’s on-screen wardrobe for the movies. And, actor Robbie Coltrane voiced Hagrid’s script as well to make sure visitors feel the experience is as authentic as possible.

6 Newt Scamander, Finder Of Fantastic Beasts

We couldn’t make a list of Harry Potter fan art without at least one mention from the Fantastic Beasts series. Here’s the author and star of the story himself, Newt Scamander rendered in full color with a fantastic beast of one sort or another surrounding him.

Ever since the first movie was released in late 2016, fans have taken to Fantastic Beasts warmly as an extension of the fantasy world we’ve all had the pleasure of getting to know. The star character is an anxious but brilliant wizard from a time decades before Lord Voldemort ever imagined taking power. Later this year we’ll all have the chance to see Newt again, and perhaps some of us will feel inspired to create more works of art such as this.

Art by in-sine.

8 The Herald/Child/Mentor: Hagrid

Herald characters typically appear at the beginning of the hero’s journey as part of what Campbell calls the “Call to Adventure.” Hagrid liberates Harry from the Durselys at the beginning of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, informs Harry of his true wizard nature and origins, and acts as a mentor for the first few chapters (at least until Harry’s true mentor, Dumbledore, can take over the role).

Hagrid goes on to be a steadfast ally to Harry for the entire series. He also fits the archetypal function of The Child. With this archetype, we have a character trapped in a perpetual naiveté. Several major plot points turn on Hagrid’s innocence and inability to read bad intentions.
