Harry Potter re-edit squeezes all eight movies into 90 minutes

It’s called ‘Wizardhood’

Posted on

Young wizards grow up so fast, don’t they?

And yet, Harry Potter fans may not always find themselves with 19 and a half hours to watch all eight installments of the magical movie franchise, so it’s a good thing one enterprising editor has condensed them down to a brisk 90 minutes.

Created by Tim Stiefler, the recut is titled Wizardhood, in a nod to Richard Linklater’s 12-year opus Boyhood. Like its Muggle counterpart, Wizardhood distills more than a decade in the lives of its central characters — Daniel Radcliffe’s Harry, Emma Watson’s Hermione, Rupert Grint’s Ron — down to feature length. It’s the next-best thing to having a time-turner.

Watch Wizardhood above.
