A Quick and Dirty Primer To Watch Before Seeing ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2’

I spent at least half an hour yesterday in my kitchen trying to explain the smaller details of the Harry Potter movie universe to my wife, and I found myself forgetting a lot. Names, dates, why things happened the way they did, how to cure a case of the Mudbloods.

It’s effectively a long-form trailer for all the movies, delivered in a brisk 5 minutes, but it will probably have you slapping your forehead a few times when you remember one of the millions of details you temporarily forgot. Or, it might just be a great bit of instant nostalgia. Either way, it’s a pretty sweet video.
