I didn’t discover the Harry Potter books until after I had watched the first film the Philosopher’s Stone. The film was definitely where my love for Harry Potter started!
After watching it, I read the books in quick succession and I have watched all of the films a ridiculous amount of times since. Si doesn’t quite get my love for what he sees as a children’s film, but I love nothing better than curling up with a blanket and a cuppa and losing myself in the magical world of Harry Potter for an afternoon.
Just imagine having magical powers and a wand. I would never have to iron again or cook, just a swish of my wand and it would all be done. I would love to live in the Harry Potter world … minus Dementors and other not so fun things of course!
We visited Warner Studios last year for the first time and it really was fantastic. It was awe-inspiring to see just how much effort went into the films with all the props and special effects. Si was a bit confused at times, since he’s one of the few people on the planet who has never watched a Harry Potter film! Even he couldn’t deny how amazing it all was.
We’re continuing the Harry Potter fun soon as we’re off on a review trip to Orlando Studios eek! I am so excited and even more so because it is a Harry Potter fan’s dream come true. I may even get to ride on the Hogwart’s Express! I think I am actually more excited than the boys.
