At my last count, there were approximately 700 feature films about the boy wizard Harry Potter, the shortest of which is about four and a half hours long. But now, an artist Tim Stiefler has performed his own feat of magic and edited all the Harry Potter movies down into one 80-minute movie: Wizardhood.
Wizardhood, I probably don’t have to point out, is a play on Boyhood, and a reference to the fact that the main characters of the cast age from children to teenagers to young adults throughout what is now a single feature film. It’s an efficient way to acquaint yourself with the Potter mythos, especially since Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has now found itself inside a movie theater near you.
You can watch Wizardhood below. And for more stuff from Tim Stiefler, check out some of his other work on his official Vimeo account right here.
