It's been a decade since 2001's "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" introduced us to the cinematic versions of J.K. Rowling's ubiquitous novels. Since then, the series has barely ebbed in popularity, grossing over $6.3 billion worldwide and surpassing James Bond to become the highest-grossing film franchise.
While the world has shown steady love for the franchise, which will surely climax with this week's grand finale "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," other trends haven't been so lucky. Friendster and flip phones will take over the world, right?
NextMovie took the time machine to 2001 to give you the below Then & Now chart. We may all be 10 years older, but Potter is eternal.
