The Harry Potter movies and books are great. However, since the movies came out years ago now, the franchise is tapering down a bit. The Harry Potter themed datebooks available these days are all undated planners (see above for the most popular one). However, they ARE very stylish, so the real fan may like them – even if they do have to put the dates in themselves.
There are also several Harry Potter calendars thankfully, as if to make up for the lack of planners.
Order the Harry Potter Weekly Planner right now: published in August (unfortunately that does NOT mean you’ll have the dates for August through Dec. the next year as well).
Now that the last Harry Potter movie is out, and we all know the ending, we still can’t let him go, can we? The Deathly Hallows, the Horcruxes, Ron, Hermione, Neville, Luna and of course Harry Potter himself – they’ve become part of our lives.
“Harry Potter” is of course a series of seven fantasy novels (and 8 movies) written by British author J. K. Rowling. With Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, his friends from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry Harry fights evil incarnate: Lord Voldemort. For some reason (the reason does become clear in the series) Lord Voldemort has decided that the baby Harry Potter is the most dangerous threat to his rule of the wizarding world.
J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter Books and movies
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is the first novel in the Harry Potter series. It describes how Harry discovers he is a wizard, makes close friends and a few enemies at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and with the help of his friends thwarts an attempted comeback by the evil wizard Voldemort, who killed Harry’s parents and tried to kill Harry when he was one year old.
The film version starts with Harry defying his aunt and uncle. He attends Hogwarts where he begins to learn magic and make new friends, as well as enemies, among the Hogwarts students and staff. Voldemort has been near death, and in hiding, since the attack on Harry ten years earlier, but a plot is brewing for the dark lord to regain his power and strength through the acquisition of a philosopher’s stone, which grants immortality to its owner. Harry and his friends, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, discover the plot and seek to prevent the theft of the stone, which is hidden in a protected chamber at Hogwarts.
In the second movie, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter faces Voldemort again – this time in the form of a memory that comes alive. The suspense is heightened in this movie as Harry hears a mysterious voice and students are attacked all year.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is the third movie. The threat here isn’t Lord Voldemort himself, but those who support him and the dark, soul sucking, dementors. It ends on the high note of Harry finding his godfather.
In the fourth film, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Voldemort is present at first only through Harry’s dreams. More real are the threats he faces as he is forced into a wizards tournament that has claimed deaths in the past. It all culminates in Harry facing an alive ‘He who must not be named’ and the subsequent discovery of a traitor at Hogwarts.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the largest of the 7 books by J.K. Rowling. It is therefore not surprising that the movie doesn’t contain all that’s in the book. This movie is, like the book, perhaps the first one to criticize the government explicitly. Voldemort being back is a challenge, but facing the Ministry of Magic makes Harry’s life difficult daily.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has only just come out in July 2009. Dumbledore dies, Snape seems the most evil character in the world and again the threat of Voldemort is mostly felt through his supporters. Perhaps the most thrilling Harry Potter movie yet.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is the final book, and was turned into two movies. In it the prophecy comes true about Harry and Voldemort – ‘ neither can live while the other survives’ comes true. What is the power Harry knows that Voldemort does not? Personally I think the last movie was also the best.
Anyhow, here it is, the: the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Planner. On the left is a picture from that planner.
It’s labeled ‘Deathly Hallows’ very clearly, so obviously it contains images from that movie (the first). The cover is certainly based on the movie, so you can plan on weaving a little magic into your life this year with spellbinding imagery from the fascinating Harry Potter series of films. The spiral binding on this handy engagement calendar allows the calendar to open flat for convenient writing, and the 7.5″ x 8.75″ size will fit your life right.
