Harry Potter Movie Quotes

There are eight Harry Potter movies based on seven books. They were just unable to let go of the series and had to add one more movie. And they caused the “one book two movies” craze that was later adopted by many more production companies. But we got a bonus movie, so we’re not gonna complain about it. It might have been frustrating back when the movies came out, but for the marathons now it doesn’t matter anymore.

The movies are sorted by the release order. After clicking on the movie title you’ll be brought to a page with the best quotes from the particular movie.
