How Well Does a Casual ‘Harry Potter’ Viewer Know the ‘Harry Potter’ Movies?
Fifteen years ago this week we met a boy with glasses and a lightning bolt scar. He went to a magical school, learned how to fly, made some friends, fought some enemies, and defeated one of the most fearsome movie villains of all time. You probably know his name is Harry Potter, but how well do you know the Harry Potter movies?
To celebrate the 15th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, which opened in November 16, 2001, ScreenCrush is putting our knowledge to the test. I’m a fan of the movies and have been rewatching them each week leading up to the anniversary (you can read all my reviews here), but how well does ScreenCrush editor-in-chief Matt Singer remember them?
Matt has seen all the Potter movies at least once, he’s been to Universal’s Wizarding World theme park, and he’s married to a big Potter fan. So he must be an expert, right? To find out how well he knows J.K. Rowling’s most famous creation, I gave him my own version of the O.W.L.S. Check out our video above to see how well he did and test your knowledge to find out how much of a Potter pundit you truly are. And make sure to stick around till the end of the video when Matt sings the Jeopardy! theme song Harry Potter-style.
If you’re craving more Harry Potter, can check out my review of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and theories connecting the new spinoff to Rowling’s Potter books. Fantastic Beasts opens November 18.
