This week was back to school week for muggle kids across the U.S. and for magical students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the most famous school in Faerie. ABC Family Channel is celebrating back to school week with another popular “Harry Potter Weekend” event on Saturday, Sept. 7 and Sunday, Sept. 8.
The most popular fairy-story movies in history are based on the book series by J.K. Rowling. The Potter saga is a fairy story in the classic sense. The tale begins with Harry being taken from Faerie (what Rowling calls the wizarding world) and being left to be raised by his non-magical relatives. Such a character is known as a changeling in fairy literature. After several years Harry ends up traveling to Faerie and his life is forever changed. This is a classic formula in fairy literature.
