Why choose a Harry Potter wallpaper?

Written by J.K. Rowling, the Harry Potter fantasy series were first published in 1997. Ever since then they have garnered immense popularity and are one of the biggest pop culture phenomenons ever. Spread across seven books, the series tells the story of a young orphaned boy, Harry Potter, who finds out that he is a wizard. A whole world of magic and wizardry opens up to him, while he discovers the truth about his parents and his unique role in the disappearance of the most prolific dark wizard. With the help of his two best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, he navigates this new world along with his new life as “The boy who lived”.

Furthermore, each of the books was turned into a movie, with the last book being split into two films. Each of these films has garnered billions of dollars at the box office. Philosopher’s Stone and Deathly Hallows Part 2 are among the 50 highest grossing films of all time. Actors Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry Potter, Rupert Grint – Ron Weasley and Emma Watson as Hermione Granger are amongst the most recognisable actors of all time. Needless to say, this cultural phenomenon was all the craze in the 2000s. However, to this day, young children keep finding and relating to the story of Harry Potter. And its momentum doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Which is why, Harry Potter wallpapers are still very in demand.
