The Entire 'Harry Potter' Series in 2 Minutes

Clocking in at 1,178 minutes, or just under 20 hours, the Harry Potter films, while excellent representations of the wonderful books by J.K. Rowling, are simply too long to watch. But fret no more, muggles — we’ve got you covered. In the second episode of our new series, “Too Long; Didn’t Watch,” we tackle the story of the boy who lived. In roughly 0.2% of the time it takes Harry’s story to unfold on screen, we explore the films in their entirety. No themes left unexplored; no characters left unanalyzed. We promise.
