It is crucial to keep in mind the ongoing controversial remarks made by the creator of the Harry Potter series.

For more updates on J.K. Rowling's statements, you can refer to CBR's latest coverage here.

The Harry Potter saga begins with the tragic event of Voldemort taking the lives of Harry's parents, James and Lily Potter. However, the true reason behind this act is not unveiled until Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Harry, the protagonist of the series, gains fame for the lightning bolt scar on his forehead, a result of surviving Voldemort's lethal curse. This incident also earned Harry the nickname "The Boy Who Lived" as he became the sole person to survive the deadly Avada Kedavra curse cast by Voldemort.

The prophecy that led to Voldemort targeting Harry and killing his parents is complex yet straightforward. The prophecy foretold that a child born at the end of July to parents who had defied Voldemort three times would have the power to defeat him.

Severus Snape, a former Death Eater turned spy, passed on this prophecy to Voldemort, leading to the tragic events that shaped Harry's destiny. Through his actions, Voldemort inadvertently fulfilled the prophecy that ultimately led to his downfall.

Despite the possibility that the prophecy could have pointed to another family, the Longbottoms, Voldemort's personal vendetta against the Potters drove him to target Harry specifically. His actions, guided by the prophecy, set in motion a series of events that ultimately led to his own demise. The complex interplay of fate, self-fulfillment, and personal motivations culminated in the epic battle between Harry Potter and the Dark Lord Voldemort, a journey that captivated audiences around the world.
