Revival of Harry Potter in 4 new fantasy novels

Wed, Jun. 5, 2019
CAIRO – 2 June 2019: British novelist J.K Rowling, best known for writing "Harry Potter" sequel, will publish in July four new fantasy stories where Potter is the protagonist.

The books are based on the lessons Harry, Ron, and Hermione learned while attending Hogwarts. The fictional stories will teach readers about "the traditional folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories," according to a statement.

The books, which will all be published this summer, bear the following titles:

• "Harry Potter: A Journey Through Charms and Defense Against the Dark Arts"
• "Harry Potter: A Journey Through Potions and Herbology"
• "Harry Potter: A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy"
• "Harry Potter: A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures"

The four e-books will also include manuscript pages, notes, and sketches from Rowling's time writing the original Harry Potter books.

"Harry Potter" chronicles the lives of a young wizard, Harry Potter, and his friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, all of whom are students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The main story arc concerns Harry's struggle against Lord Voldemort, a dark wizard who intends to become immortal, overthrow the wizard governing body known as the Ministry of Magic and subjugate all wizards and muggles (non-magic people).

Since the release of the first novel, "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone", on June 26, 1997, the books have found immense popularity, critical acclaim and commercial success worldwide.

They have attracted adult audience as well as younger readers and are often considered cornerstones of modern young adult literature. As of February 2018, the books have sold more than 500 million copies worldwide, making them the best-selling book series in history, and have been translated into 80 languages.

The last four books consecutively set records as the fastest-selling books in history, with the final part selling roughly 11 million copies in the United States within 24 hours of its release.
