Let the feast begin! Whether you’re a seasoned Potterhead or starting fresh in the world of magic, here’s how to watch Harry Potter movies in order.

The Potterverse may have 7 novels and 8 films to its credit, but it’s a breeze getting into it once you start. As someone who read the books first, I can say that Rowling’s writings made it more magical than it was on the screen. But since the movies are majorly adaptations of the books, you won’t lose much if you just watch the movies.

We’re also throwing Fantastic Beasts movies in the mix because they’re an important prequel to better understanding the Harry Potter movies. So if you’re looking for the answer to ‘what are the 8 Harry Potter movies?’ Here’s the answer.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone cast is the first to feature the trio in the Potterverse. The two Fantastic Beasts movies are prequels to the Harry Potter movies, and you’ll enjoy the extra context from those.

Watching Harry Potter in release date order is recommended because then you’re watching the films the way they were originally released. They’re set between 1926-1998, progressing as the years pass by in Hogwarts. You can also watch these movies in chronological order, which means watching the Fantastic Beast movies first, to know the foundation of Potterverse before jumping into it.
