Hedwig's Theme is a leitmotif composed by John Williams for the Harry Potter film series. Often labelled as the main theme of the film series, it was first featured in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in the track "Prologue." A concert of the same name is featured in the end credits. Hedwig's Theme has been interpolated throughout every Harry Potter film score, including those by Patrick Doyle, Nicholas Hooper, and Alexandre Desplat. It is also featured in the score to the Order of the Phoenix game composed by James Hannigan. Hedwig's Theme has achieved significant pop culture status, featuring in ring tones, trailer music and other forms of multimedia. Most recently, it featured over the title of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (film), which indicates that it will be the theme of JK Rowling's Wizarding World - the brand which encompasses Harry Potter and all associated work under her name.
