The newly redesigned Harry Potter book covers show the classic characters reimagined with a distinct style, over twenty years after they were first released.
A new series of Harry Potter the book covers showcase the updated looks of Harry, Ron and Hermione. The first book by author JK Rowling Harry Potter The series came out over a quarter century ago, kicking off decades of popularity and success for the franchise. The landmark books of the era were followed by an equally successful series of films, starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint as Harry, Hermione and Ron, respectively.
Although there were some small changes and absent secondary characters, the Harry Potter the films were largely accurate adaptations of the books, faithful to their main plot and character beats. Some of the more minor changes couldn’t be avoided and were due to the logistics of working with a large number of young actors. For example, while Harry is depicted as being relatively tall in the books, Radcliffe ended up being on the shorter side at around 5’5″. On the other hand, Watson and Grint’s versions of Hermione and Ron were more in line with what Rowling originally portrayed, and the author herself said how impressed she was with the majority of the cast.
Now a new series of Harry Potter book covers for a reissue of the series show reimagined versions of the now iconic characters. The cover shared with the Magic world site has a very distinct style, with bold colors and dazzling detail, which frames the characters that are central to the story of Harry Potter. The titular character takes center stage in the majority of the covers, where he is depicted with his sleek black hair and dark green eyes. Check out the new covers below:
The new covers will become the latest in a long line of artists’ impressions of the world of Harry Potter, and will help create a new image for the characters as they become a staple on shelves around the world. Fans of the series will notice that the art wasn’t just inspired by the books themselves, with some characters bearing a striking resemblance to how they’re portrayed in the movies. The drawing of Professor Dumbledore, for example, seen on the new cover of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Princeis clearly informed by the version of the character seen on screen with his signature hat.
While the longevity of Harry Potter series of books is indisputable, the Magic world the future of the franchise looks more complex. The Harry Potter The film series was a huge box office success, ranking alongside other successful franchises like the MCU films and the star wars sequel trilogy. However, the fantastic beasts The prequel series failed to reach those heights, and it’s yet to be confirmed if the planned five-film arc will ever be complete. However, Harry Potter fans wishing to rekindle their love of the franchise will want to purchase copies of the reissued books featuring their reimagined classic characters.
