It has now been 20 years since Harry Potter first entered the muggle world. Over the years, the story of the Boy Who Lived has spawned movies, theme parks, countless of merchandise, a stage play and a spin-off (that has its own set of movies!). With all these, one might wonder, how much exactly is the Harry Potter franchise worth?! Surely, it's worth more than what Harry has at his own Gringott's vault!
According to a Coinage video, the Harry Potter franchise is valued at 51,877,687.62 Galleons, 11 Sickles and 12 Knuts!
To those who aren't fluent in the wizarding currency, that is approximately $25 Billion in real-world money.
If you can't wrap your head around it, here's a breakdown by books, movies (including the spinoff) and attractions:
J.K. Rowling, who is by the way, hailed as the "first female novelist billionaire" penned books that sold 160 million copies in the United States alone. The 8 films based on the books, on the other hand, earned $6.5 million worldwide. If you factor in the earnings of the spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme parks, and the innumerable memorabilia, Harry Potter and all of his wizardry things are worth an estimated $25 billion.
Now in the words of Ronald Weasley, that is just... WICKED!
