The story isn’t just captivating for kids. Many adults are fans of the “Harry Potter” series and the messages it portrays.

“The struggle of good versus evil. The struggle of holding onto a friend, doing what is right,” one man said.

It’s more than just a great movie with fantastic special effects. They have inspired kids to read.
