It's been nearly eleven years since HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE first hit theaters, leaving a phenomenon of epic proportions after the final chapter was told.  The books have sold more than 400 million copies worldwide and it is the highest grossing film series of all time (adjusted for inflation), netting $7.7 billion in worldwide box office.  Love it or hate it, there's no denying the massive success of Harry Potter.

This fan-made retrospective, entitled Michief Managed: The Harry Potter Retrospective takes you on a stunning journey through all of the films from start to finish, encompasing the many adventures, characters, and otherworldly creatures of the series.  Utilizing music from all the various composers of the series (John Williams, Patrick Doyle, Nicholas Hooper, and Alexandre Desplat), while cutting from blu-ray footage, it's the ultimate trip into the film world of Harry Potter.

Accio clip!

THE HARRY POTTER WIZARD'S COLLECTION hits blu-ray/DVD on September 7, 2012 and costs a nice stack of gold.  You may have to make a visit to Gringott's and make a withdrawal before buying this sucker, but for uber fans I'm sure it's money well spent.

Extra Tidbit: I was most impressed with David Yates films of the series. The guy has got talent to spare and I'd love to see him work on some more tentpole films. He's currently preparing to shoot the war drama St. Nazaire, but I hope he gets back into the big-budget game again soon. He is sorely needed.

That was fun

Kind of like watching a trailer for the whole series. Despite my dislike of JKR's talentless writing style, the movies themselves were fun to watch. Thirteen minutes well spent.

Gotta agree with Nightwalker. Yates is a hack. He completely ruined the final movies. Especially Half Blood Prince. That could've won Best Picture in the hands of someone with even a shred of ability. And adding his own, pointless scenes? I'm baffled and enraged at the same time as to why Rowling didn't speak up. There's not arguing that he absolutely raped book 6. Oh well.

Have to disagree about Yates....

In my openion, the later films were great NOT because of Yates, but INSPITE of him. The guy had a tendency to breeze through vastly important and potentially impactful scenes without properly focusing on, you know, the impact. Not only that but he cut out many significent scenes from the books that would've explained many mysteries more clearly, which I'd perfectly understand as book to movie transition, but then he ADDED certain nonsensial scenes that not only not needed, but contradicts the

Not only that but he cut out many significent scenes from the books that would've explained many mysteries more clearly, which I'd perfectly understand as book to movie transition, but then he ADDED certain nonsensial scenes that not only not needed, but contradicts the ground rules from the books (I'm looking at you, "Burrow Attack" sequence!). But I have to admit his direction got better gradually from one film to the next (HP5 is my least favorite from the series), and by the end of the series, I didn't mind him that much. But the later books were so great with their dark storylines and twist & turns, that a more capable director could've certainly made them even better. They worked solely because of the awesomeness of the source materials. Okay, ranting over.

P.S. I agree with most that Alfonso Cauron is the best HP director and he'd've been perfect for the later books, but it always really annoy me how they NEVER explained from where the Marauder's Map actually came from.

Very nice video...

But $350 for 8 movies is ridiculous.
