    Edit: people that are arguing with me, smfh😂here’s a link to his wiki…it says he’s a HALF BLOOD
    This video is incredible! But all these people saying Harry isn't half-blood…He 100% is because if you have a muggle born in your heritage that makes you a half-blood, and Harry's mother was a muggle born. And people saying that he's pure-blood?? Oh my goodness, he's most certainly not! To be pureblood you cant have any muggles in your heritage…HARRYS GRANDPARENTS ARE MUGGLES

    I think the actual nature of the Potter story is a deeper hidden tragedy. Harry was supposed to go into Slytherin & work w/ Snape to prepare to fight Voldemort. Harry's mistaken choice to not go into Slytherin thwarts what would have been his best possible fate. In Slytherine he might have become friends w/ Draco & helped save him from his fate as well. That is why the final realization about Snape is so critical, it shows Harry made a great mistake.

    I’m honestly really surprised that this video isn’t at least 40 minutes ( even with your why of explaining) I mean it was 7 books long but I love this

    I feel so bad for Harry, he is praised by everyone for surviving being killed by Voldemort but also at the same time be reminded of the moments that his parents sacrificed themselves just to be able to let their son live. I am lost for words and harry James Potter should be an inspiration to us all, that no matter how though the situation is you have to stay strong for the people you love. Idk why I started writing this, after watching the video I just had the urge to have to write this.

    Do you realized that Rowling started the hero's journey inside the hero's journey?

    First: muggle world and "you're a Wizard, Harry" bla, bla, bla…

    Second: 4th year, when Voldemort returns, He was in his ordinary School world, then have a call to adventure (kill Voldemort), has his personal doubts and all…
    If you watch the movies and pay attention, you will realize how everything changes from 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th years (a magical and amazing world) to 5th, 6th and 7th years (a dark, adult and more 'real' world, with real problems, personal conflicts, etc.) that's Just amazing…

    Shout out to Daniel Radcliffe for playing Harry Potter perfectly for a whole decade! Today is his 30th birthday and the world of films and fantasy wouldn't be the same if he hadn't been chosen for the role of "the Boy Who Lived." It's been nineteen years since Daniel Radcliffe crossed the threshold into the wizarding world and he will be loved by fans for all eternity.

    Ok no one attack me but Harry is technically a pure blood because he was born from a witch and a wizard. He may not have the purest blood out there because his mother was muggle born but she was a witch, making him a pure blood.

    You know I’ve always wondered why couldn’t that nose less villain regrow his own nose when he managed to regrow Pettigrow’s hand 🙂

    Good video, but I don’t think his ultimate fear was dementors as in the movies lupin says what Harry fears the most is fear itself. Since most thought the boggart would change into Voldemort

  17. what the heck am I doing here

    Harry Potter books are much better than movies. The hp movies have left out lot of important stuff from the books

    But why didn’t anyone at least attempted to write a novel like this? C’mon! Wouldn’t someone in 1890 thought about a Wizarding World?

    James should have been listed before Albus, he's older.
    Fun fact.
    His children's names are
    James Sirius Potter
    Albus Severous Potter
    Lily Luna Potter.
    though I have no idea why her name is Luna.

    Harry is honestly my favorite character. He was so sassy and persistent, I just loved him so much.
