  • Hello, I'm Crown.

  • Today we're going to celebrate

  • the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter!

  • Hello everyone!

  • Welcome back to our channel.

  • That's right!

  • As you can see,

  • Crown is cosplaying again!

  • Honestly, we've cosplayed as Harry Potter

  • for many episodes already.

  • Remember that time that Ray cosplayed as Harry?

  • Does anyone remember?

  • So for today's video,

  • we are going to talk about one of our favorite things: Harry Potter!

  • It is also going to be

  • an English Corner.

  • So if you would like to watch with

  • Chinese and English subtitles,

  • you can go to the VoiceTube website.

  • We'll put the links in the description box below.

  • If you would like to stay on YouTube,

  • then don't forget to click on CC

  • to turn on the English subtitles!

  • I can’t believe Harry Potter

  • is celebrating its twentieth anniversary this year!

  • One shot of British accent for you!

  • Seriously, it feels like just a few years ago

  • when the books and movies came out.

  • And now it’s really twenty years old!

  • Imagine how many people Harry grew up with!

  • So Harry Potter is twenty years old,

  • which means that it came out when I was...four?!

  • The first Harry Potter novel,

  • which is Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

  • came out back in June 1997

  • and it’s first movie back in 2001.

  • Then the last Harry Potter series novel

  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

  • came out in 2007,

  • and the movie franchise ended in 2011.

  • I’ve read all the 7 novels

  • except for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

  • and seen all the 8 movies.

  • Just a heads-up,

  • this might be a really nerdy video for some of you.

  • You guys get to watch as I unveil the fangirl side of me.

  • Just look at my cosplay.

  • To be honest,

  • I think that all 8 Harry Potter movies

  • is unique and awesome in each and every way.

  • Each has a specific core story

  • and we all get to grow and learn

  • and become stronger with the characters.

  • There are a lot of famous quotes from the franchise

  • like Hagrid’s “Yer a wizard Harry

  • to Snape’s “Always”.

  • I wouldn’t be able to cover all the quotes in this video,

  • but I’m gonna talk about

  • some of my favorite moments with Harry Potter.

  • First off,

  • my favorite character in Harry Potter would be

  • Hermione Granger.

  • Well, obviously, GIRL POWER! Whooo!

  • And of course, we all love the main characters

  • Harry, Ron, Hermione.

  • They all have different personalities and strengths,

  • so they will be able to help and support each other

  • in times of distress and lost hope.

  • But, Hermione Granger, in the story,

  • we got to see a female character

  • that can be such an inspirational role model for all of us.

  • She’s confident, intelligent, brave,

  • unyielding, strong and loyal,

  • all the good stuff.

  • As for my favorite scene,

  • I’ll have say it’s the battle of Hogwarts.

  • Same thing, I know there are

  • more than a few notable scenes in Harry Potter.

  • But in this particular scene,

  • I would like to point something out.

  • I read this online in an article

  • immediately after I finished watching the last episode of Harry Potter.

  • In the Battle of Hogwarts,

  • there’s this part where there are no dialogues,

  • only background music,

  • and we see the trio trying to make their way out of the school.

  • First, they meet a giant creature with a club,

  • same thing happened back in The Philosopher’s Stone

  • with the troll in the toilet.

  • Second, there are spiders coming at them,

  • same thing happened back in The Chamber of Secrets

  • with Harry and Ron at the spider cave.

  • Third, they blast off a werewolf devouring a fellow schoolmate,

  • same thing back in The Prisoner of Azkaban,

  • where Professor Lupin was the werewolf.

  • Fourth, they are faced with loads of dementors,

  • and we see dementors almost through all episodes

  • after the third one.

  • Fifth, we see the members of the Order of the Phoenix

  • standing right behind them helping,

  • and the same thing back in the fifth episode,

  • the members grouping together.

  • Sixth, the trio arrives at the Shrieking Shack and meet Severus Snape,

  • who is the Half-Blood Prince.

  • You see how this scene is making a reference to

  • all the previous Harry Potter series?

  • During this short time,

  • we see how much the trio had battled and defeated,

  • how far theyve come and how much theyve grown.

  • It really thrills me to know that the last episode

  • did pay some kind of homage to all the previous ones.

  • It just felt so right, and so meaningful,

  • you know, everything is connected.

  • My life is complete.

  • Going down to my favorite spell,

  • I think I’ll go for Obliviate.

  • This spell is a memory charm

  • used to erase someone’s memories.

  • And the most famous scene for this,

  • is probably when Hermione used it on her parents.

  • Hoping to protect her muggle parents from torture and death,

  • She erased all memories of herself from her parentsmind.

  • Obliviate

  • But it got me thinking,

  • is this spell irreversible?

  • Does that mean the parents will

  • never ever remember their daughter,

  • even if theyve defeated Voldemort?

  • I mean,

  • that’s just so sad!

  • So I hope that sometime after their victory,

  • there’s some way to undo the spell,

  • and Hermione can be with her parents again.

  • Oh and a cool bonus, did you know that Hermione’s mother

  • is also the Starksmother in Game of Thrones?

  • Boom!

  • Winter is coming in three more days.

  • I’m so excited for Season 7! Woo!

  • Alright, coming back,

  • Obliviate!

  • Obliviate!

  • I would like to mention that

  • I had the opportunity to visit the Harry Potter Studio in London.

  • It was a really magical place,

  • and you can relive all your Harry

  • Sorry

  • Sorry

  • Stupefy!

  • It was a really magical place,

  • you get to relive all your Harry Potter's

  • dreams and fantasies there.

  • If you’d like to see my tour of the Harry Potter Studio,

  • Accio video!

  • Check it right here!

  • Accio comb!

  • Go away comb!

  • Now I’d like to share some of the merchandise

  • I bought from England.

  • To be honest, I didn’t really buy a lot of stuff,

  • because at that time I thought,

  • I don’t want to be doing any impulsive buying.

  • But I kind of regret it right now.

  • I shouldve done it.

  • First, it’s this.

  • What is this?

  • It’s a box.

  • No.

  • It’s the Harry Potter Magic Wand!

  • This is Harry’s wand.

  • Authentic.

  • So yep.

  • I’ve been holding this wand in my hand

  • throughout the video.

  • Next, it’s the official guide from

  • the Making of Harry Potter Studio Tour.

  • So, basically,

  • it shows you what youll be seeing

  • inside the studio tour in London.

  • This guidebook gives you a lot of insight

  • as to how the movie is made.

  • I also bought my very own Gryffindor scarf.

  • And finally,

  • HogwartsAcceptance Letter.

  • As you can see,

  • it’s addressed to Miss Crown Du

  • So it’s legit.

  • I’m a Hogwarts student.

  • I’m a wizard.

  • I’m a wizard, Harry.

  • Finally, if youre a hardcore Harry Potter fan,

  • you must know about a website named Pottermore.

  • This is an official website set up by J.K. Rowling herself,

  • where you can read tons of background stories

  • about the wizarding world.

  • At the same time,

  • you get to take all these quizzes

  • and see where the sorting hat will sort you to,

  • what wand you use, and what your patronus is.

  • The sorting hat sorted me to House Hufflepuff,

  • which is where Newt Scamander

  • from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them comes from.

  • By the way,

  • this is Newt’s wand.

  • Then, my patronus revealed to be a deerhound,

  • which is a kind of large dog originated from Scotland.

  • My wand is a silver lime wood wand

  • with phoenix feather as its core.

  • Harry’s wand was also a phoenix feather one.

  • Okay!

  • That's all the Harry Potter knowledge

  • that I would like to share with all of you today.
