The Harry Potter series introduced the concept of Animagi through Sirius Black, James Potter, and Peter Pettigrew, all of whom had the power to turn into animals. The Wizarding World is home to a lot of magic, but the chances of finding an Animagus are few and far between because of the difficulties in becoming one. A lot of details and history about Animagi have been revealed since the books have ended through sites like Pottermore and the Harry Potter Lexicon, so it's definitely worth learning more about them.
Some facts were presented in the books but weren't explained, which means fans might not realize they were privy to important details the whole time.
