Ever since Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone (The Philosopher’s Stone, in the UK) was released back in 1997, the magical world created by legendary author J.K. Rowling has become a global phenomenon.

Seven books and eight blockbuster films later and Harry Potter is still a firm favorite with fans around the world. But, could there still be a few insider secrets we still don’t know?
