Get ready for the New Year by looking at Potter over the past twenty years

2010 is looking to be another great year for Harry Potter fans. So far we know of two big events: the opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in the Spring and the opening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 on November 19th.

While you get ready to ring in the New Year, we wanted to remind you about two end-of-year specials here on MuggleNet. These were originally posted over the weekend.

Our 2009 Year in Review looks back at the top Harry Potter news stories of the year. We also highlight some MuggleNet-related numbers and recall the best videos of the year.

Our Harry Potter Timeline is an exhaustive look back at the Harry Potter franchise. From Jo's original idea in 1990 to the release of Half-Blood Prince earlier this year, you'll see all the news and events that made the franchise what it is today.

Do you have high hopes for Potter in 2010?!
