Sure, the Harry Potter films contain plenty of whimsy, adventure, and dignified British thespians gleefully chewing scenery. But we all know the real reason Potterphiles watch these flicks over and over again — they wanna see some hufflepuffin’ magic.

Thankfully, YouTube masters Jeremy Scott and Chris Atkinson — the geniuses behind Pulp Fiction: Just the Cussing” and Transformers: Just the Transforming” — understand this. They’ve assembled a brand new supercut that brings together every single “spell/wand/hand-based magic” moment from each of the eight Potter movies. The result? Over 17 minutes of wand waving, light zapping, and reminders that it’s not “levioSAAA,” it’s “leviOHsa.” Swish and flick, everyone:

If you don’t have the patience to sit through the entire montage, fast forward through and watch as Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson transform from fresh-faced Hogwarts first years into battle-scarred magical warriors.
