If you find yourself with some time on your hands, why not watch the Harry Potter film series in order, from beginning to end.
Since we were first introduced to the wizarding world with J.K. Rowling’s books in 1997, fans of all ages all over the world have been captivated by the magic, spells, characters and locations from the stories.
The adventures of a boy wizard named Harry Potter, who takes on the evil Lord Voldemort, have stolen the hearts of generations, and the young wizard has become an icon of pop-culture.
Harry Potter is considered to be one of the greatest series in literary history, and the film series only matched the novels in success and popularity.
Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint as Harry, Hermione and Ron respectively, the films have an all-star cast that all stuck around for the entire series. It’s brilliant to see so many British actors in the series, such as Michael Gambon, Ralph Fiennes, Julie Walters, Warwick Davis, Imelda Staunton, and more.
There are eight Harry Potter films in total, whilst there only being seven books. Clocking in at 1,178 minutes (approximately 20 hours), the Harry Potter film series is the perfect one to choose for a movie marathon. And if you want to go one step further and make your movie night as magical as possible, you can include the spin-off film series, Fantastic Beasts.
That’s a total of ten films to get your teeth stuck into, and with an age rating certificate of either PG or 12A, it’s a film night that the whole family can enjoy together.
