If you've never seen the Harry Potter movies (or read the books) you've probably experienced the shocked reaction of some (possibly annoying) Harry Potter superfan in your life going, "What!? How is that possible?"
You may have even breathed a sigh of relief when the final Harry Potter film came out in 2011, and Pottermania finally started to die down. But no, they started making Harry Potter stage plays, and people kept playing Harry Potter extreme sports. Then came this new Harry Potter spinoff franchise, which is going to span five movies or something crazy like that.
And what if the fam wants to take a trip down to Florida? If you've never seen the Harry Potter movies, you're not going to know what the hell is going on when you hit up Universal Studios.
You're just going to have to give in and catch up at some point, but who has 18 hours to put in watching the entirety of the Harry Potter film series? Thankfully, if you're the type of person who's down with the study-as-little-as-possible-and-cram-the-night-before-the-test approach to life, someone has edited all eight of the movies into one single narrative, which runs 78 minutes.
Wizardhood, as the supercut is called, leaves out the vast majority of everything that actually happens in the Potter movies, but if you just want to dip your toe in, or maybe just get a quick refresher without the commitment, this'll work. Thank Vimeo user Tim Stiefler for saving you hours of precious time you can instead use to finally binge-watch all five seasons of The Wire.
UPDATE: Looks like the video has been taken down. Guess you'll have to watch the full series to get the story instead.
