With the conclusion of the saga in 2011, the HARRY POTTER series as a whole was honored with an AFI Special Award, recognizing it for its significance to the cultural landscape. According to the official rationale, “THE HARRY POTTER SERIES marks the final triumphant chapter of a landmark series; eight films that earned the trust of a generation who wished for the beloved books of J.K. Rowling to come to life on the silver screen. The collective wizardry of an epic ensemble gave us the gift of growing older with Harry, Ron and Hermione as the magic of Hogwarts sprung from the films and into the hearts and minds of Muggles around the world.”
