(WIFR) - The cast of Harry Potter reunited for the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts on New Year’s Day. This beloved cast represents our favorite characters from our favorite series and took us back to when it all started 20 years ago with the first movie.

To commemorate this incredible anniversary, Scholarship Institute found out which Harry Potter character is the favorite in every state. The institute looked at Google Trends for 13 Harry Potter characters over the course of 2021 and analyzed the search trends for each state to find out which is every state’s favorite.
