"The stories we love best do live in us forever. So whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home."
J.K. Rowling

Harry Potter began as a series of seven fantasy novels by J. K. Rowling and later expanded into a multimedia franchise. Following the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the franchise as a whole has been rebranded as Wizarding World (or J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World). We have separate pages for its book, film, and video game incarnations; this one is a disambiguation page to help you locate the more specific one you were looking for.

The Dursleys

In the "Harry Potter" franchise, Petunia and Vernon Dursley hate magic. In Petunia's case, it's because as a child her sister was a witch and she was jealous, wanting to get into Hogwarts herself but being unable to. In Vernon's case, it's because he's simply an uptight, straight-laced man who can't abide thought of anything even the slightest bit abnormal. In any case, the two raise Harry telling him nothing about his past, hoping that by eschewing anything even remotely magical they can somehow force it out of him. But they don't reckon on the fact that as muggles, they are completely ill-equipped to stop somebody magical from claiming their birthright at Hogwarts.
