It’s safe to say that the Harry Potter franchise is now a global phenomenon that will be with us for a long, long time. When J.K. Rowling sat down to start the first book, I don’t think she could have ever imagined what a huge deal her story about a boy named Harry would become.
Some 23 years later and Potter is everywhere, and I honestly can’t believe that the first Harry Potter book released the same year as Final Fantasy 7. That’s a fact that blows my mind as it seems like the world of Wizardry has been around forever.
A quick Google search tells me that since 1997 the Harry Potter franchise as a whole has managed to bring in $25 Billion in revenue, which is a staggering amount, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want more with new merchandise popping up all over the place.
Coincidently, this article is about something else with the Potter brand you can get your mitts on, and if you didn’t guess from the title, it’s a jigsaw puzzle. A large jigsaw puzzle.
Coming in at an eye-watering 3000 pieces, the Potter-Puzzle features an image of Hogwarts that, quite frankly, looks like an absolute nightmare to assemble. Seriously, look at how similar all the colors are in the castle and look at how much sky there is.
The idea of it is enough to bring me out in cold sweats, but I still want to do it.
If, like me, you’re up for the challenge, the jigsaw can be yours for the cool sum of $29.99. The puzzle is available to pre-order now from Entertainment Earth with shipping available sometime in June.
Let us know your thoughts on the puzzle in the comments. Is it something you’d be excited to try, or does all that blasted sky put you off? Either way, there’s no chance of slowing down the world of Harry Potter.
