What years did the setting of Harry potter take place?
Current times . . . the book doesn't give a date, but in the movie you see the giant wheel on the Thames River in London. It's only been up for about 10 years or so.
Um, 2011. Now, duh. even the books the setting was now
The wizard seems dated further past but the muggle world is present so I'd say now
Jk rowling wrote them in the past 20 years or do I believe, & the books are present tense so not too long ago
Harry potter was born in the year of 1980.
Harry was a first year in 1991, so about 1991-1997. The epilogue was during 2016.
Probably not too long ago but before cellphones and technology like that was invented because none of the muggles seemed to use that stuff in the books and movies
