Harry Potter is one of my favorite movies. I think it's so popular because it's beyond of people's regular imagination. The concept of the movie is new and fresh to people so many get curious about it and want to watch it more.
This Is For The Potter Generation...>>> I can honestly say the same thing about Percy Jackson. I didn't grow up with Harry Potter- though I love the books- but I did with Percy Jackson, and it breaks my heart knowing BoO was Percy Jackson's final adventure...<<<same here. After I finished BoO, I immediately picked up Harry Potter and started reading those.
