Today, we begin our countdown to the final Harry Potter movie and a week of fun features. To kick things off, we bring you a bittersweet & sentimental look back at the first seven films, and how far things have come over the last ten years. It’s incredible to think how long this series has been a part of pop culture and so many of our lives. I was a freshman in college when the first film came out; I reviewed it for my college paper. (Ten years?!?! Wow. Way to make me feel old, Potter franchise!)
It’s been so long since the first movie came out, that as I compiled today’s post, I discovered it was impossible to find HD YouTube versions of the first few movie trailers because they came out before technology had gotten that far.
For today’s kick-off to Harry Potter week, we bring you a look back at Years 1-7 — with a look at trailers for each of the first seven movies. In the comments, share your fondest Potter memories.
