My Favorite Fantasy (Percy Jackson, Wicked, Harry Potter)
Hi everyone! Today, I'm going to tell you about one of my favorite things! I like many things, but my favorite thing is fantasy stories because they're so fun and exciting!
First, I will tell you about my favorite fantasy books. Some people don't really care about the orders of books (or movies either), but I do. Also, I hate spoilers. Some people love spoilers, but I don't because spoilers usually include many important things in the series, and if I accidently know them, I lose all the fun. Anyway, I said that Harry Potter was my favorite series in my profile, but now, I'm not sure between Harry Potter and Percy Jackson. (Well, one of my friends forced me to like Percy Jackson.) Right now, I'm reading the 4th book of The Heroes of Olympus, and it's the next series to Percy Jackson. I have one more book left in The heroes of Olympus, and then I'm going to read The Trials of Apollo series, which is the next series of The Heroes of Olympus (The stories are all connected to one another). I think Percy Jackson is better(for now, at least). It may be because I'm reading it now, but Percy Jackson has much more exciting plots during the story than Harry Potter does. So I really recommend Percy Jackson (especially if you like Harry Potter). But I do not recommend the movie version of Percy Jackson. Harry Potter movie was pretty good for moving the story from the book to the movie, but Percy Jackson movie is totally different. Only its character names are the same (not their look), it's almost like two seperate stories. The movie story isn't bad, but it's totally different from the book. Also, there are only two Percy Jackson movies (1 and 2) so if you only watch those, you never get to know the ending. I watched them, and my memories of the book 1 and 2 are mixed with the book and the movie. I regretted watching it. Anyway, Percy Jackson is fun, and you should try reading it someday. (It's so fun, I bring it everywhere I go, and read it at any left time, even for a minute because my mom doesn't let me read it a lot at home because of my homework.)
Second, I'll tell you about my favorite fantasy musical. I'm not talking about musical movies, I'm talking about musicals. I haven't watched lots of musicals, so I might not know well, but for now, my favorite fantasy musical is a musical called Wicked. Do you know The Wizard of Oz? In case you don't know, The Wizard of Oz is a story in which a girl named Dorothy travels to the Emerald City with Scarecrow, Tin man, and the Lion to meet the Wizard of Oz because Dorothy wants to go back home, Scarecrow wants brain, Tin Man wants a heart, and the Lion wants to have courage. In the story, there are 4 witches. Two of them are good, and the other two are wicked. One of the wicked witches is the Wicked witch of the West (Elphaba), and one of the good witches is the good witch of the North, who is Glinda. But in Wicked, its main story is that actually Elphaba wasn't wicked and she's a good witch, but mistaken to be wicked because of her green skin, and Glinda and Elphaba were actually friends. I like this musical because its story is exciting and fun, all of its songs are great (like Defying Gravity), and the costumes and the sets are so beautiful and colorful. I watched it about two months ago, and my dad barely got a ticket but only for me because it was really hard to get three of them. Wicked is now on in Seoul, and they will perform in Busan, too! I really want to watch it again, and I recommend it to you.
From here, it's about my favorite fantasy movie. My favorite fantasy movie is Harry Potter. Of course I like Harry Potter books, too, but I think I prefer Percy Jackson for now. Why do I like Harry Potter? Well, I like Harry Potter because its story is exciting and the wizard stuff is fascinating! I loved Harry Potter so much that all I talked about for 1 or 2 years was Harry Potter. I bought lots of Harry Potter goods, too.
Do you like fantasy, too? I love fantasy! This is a bit too long, but anyway, thanks for reading! Bye!
