Harry Potter Apps Debuts In Top Grossing Book Apps

The Harry Potter franchise has a new app available called Harry Potter Film Wizardry. As of Tuesday, the app was the Top Grossing iPad app in the books category on iTunes.

The interactive app is all about the making of the final Harry Potter flick. It debuted last week, in advance of the film’s release. The $12.99 app includes behind-the-scenes filmmaking stories, unpublished photos and interviews from the film’s actors.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Harry Potter film grossed $481.5 million in ticket sales in its opening weekend, making it the best worldwide debut of all time.

Last month, J.K. Rowling announced that she has a new Harry Potter website in the works. Pottermore will bring the world of Harry Potter to life with thousands of words of new content from the author and new interactive experiences. The site will also sell Harry Potter eBooks, which will be released for the first time this year.

The Voice Behind Harry Potter Audio Books

The wonderful voice you hear on the Harry Potter audio books belongs to the seasoned Broadway actor, Jim Dale. This award winning actor started doing the voice over for Harry Potter books eight years ago. Mr. Dale has successfully been able to incorporate many different characters and voices into the script and has done so magnificently. Although hesitant at first to take on the project, Mr. Dale did so at the golden age of 71. He even won a Guinness World Record award for being able to create 134 character voices in the Order of the Phoenix. Each time a new book in the Potter series is released, an audio version goes out at the same time. That means that Mr. Dale must stay on top of things to make sure that all audio is ready by a set deadline date.

In all, Jim Dale has created over 200 separate voices for all of the Potter audio versions. And, to his credit, more than 5 million copies of these wonderful audio books have been sold since 1999.

This beats the world record for the best-selling audio books of all time.

The Harry Potter audio series has some interesting facts attached to it. It would take you five full days (117 + hours) to listen to the entire series in unison. To listen to the entire series in your car would mean driving at 60 miles per hour from New York to Seattle to Los Angeles to Atlanta and back to New York. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows consists of 17 CDs or 12 cassettes and over 635,000 copies of the audio version were ordered when the book first came out.

Listening to anything in the Potter series is a wonderful escape from reality. The books have become a worldwide phenomenon and are loved by people of ages. The recordings made by Jim Dale are definitely worth listening to – They are an absolute delight! He makes Harry Potter audio books something that can’t be missed for their pure listening pleasure.

He is brilliant and no one compares to him according to Anita Silvey, a well-know children’s book expert.

Top Ten Most Memorable Harry Potter Moments

Now that the last Harry Potter movie has previewed, some fans are feeling a little disappointed that the phenomenon is over. All seven premiers of the movie broke box office records. Harry Potter fans have weighed in on their favorite moments.  Let’s take a look back at the top ten Harry Potter moments.

10. In the first movie, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s or Sorcerer’s Stone, Hagrid tells Harry that he is a wizard. It was an amazing revelation for an orphan that was stuck with foster parents that treated him very badly.

9. The first Quidditch match in the first movie, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone or Sorcerer’s Stone. The world premiere of the new game created by J.K. Rowling was a thrill for Potter fans.

8. The initial visit to platform 9 ¾ in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone or Sorcerer’s Stone.

The magic starts with the train ride to Hogwarts and the way they got to the train started it all.

7. The firework show by Fred and George in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It was an exciting moment for the students at Hogwarts and the viewers.

6. When Hermione punches Draco in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Draco deserved a good punch in the face, but nobody expected it to come from sweet Hermione.

5. Harry’s first visit to Diagon Alley in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone or Sorcerer’s Stone. This was one of the most exciting parts of the Harry Potter series because we all got a look at the world of wizards.

4. The famous duel between Dumbledore and Voldemort in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The duel that could never be matched until Harry dueled Voldemort.

3. Dobby’s sacrifice that led to his death in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows:  Part 1. The courageous actions of a grateful friend was a moving moment in the series.

2. When Professor Snape kills Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. This was a moment that made all Harry Potter fans gasp in horror.

1. The initial look at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone or Sorcerer’s Stone. Every viewer was completely drawn into the world of wizardry at this moment. It is one of the most amazing moments in cinema history.

These are the top ten Harry Potter moments. For over a decade, fans have been enjoying the wonderful wizard world of Harry Potter. The movies have been a large part of our lives and now it is over. In the last Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollow:  Part 2, the ending leaves you wondering whether it’s really over. Will the popularity of the series lead J.K. Rowling to continue the series with the next generation of wizards or will we have to relive the old Harry Potter moments. Did Harry Potter really defeat Lord Voldemort for good?
