There are few literary or cinematic phenomena more popular worldwide than the Harry Potter series. Penned by author J.K. Rowling, the story of a boy who survived an assassination attempt in infancy, discovered he's a wizard at age 11, and grew up to defeat the most evil wizard on the planet has enveloped countless fans in a magical universe that we sometimes wish was real. How cool would it be to be able to cast a spell to fix our eyeglasses, heal broken bones, travel from place to place in a flash, and oh yeah, murder evil wizards? Pretty cool... (except for that murdering part).
