Watch &#8220;Mischief Managed," A <i>Harry Potter</i> Retrospective Video

In what will likely go down as one of the most successful film franchises of all time, Warner Bros.’ eight Harry Potter films held a firm grasp on the movie industry during their eleven-year string of releases. Now that the final film has come and gone, Kees Van Dijkhuizen Jr. has put together a graceful thirteen-minute retrospective video in tribute to the franchise.

The video, titled “Mischief Managed,” debuted on MuggleNet earlier this week. Drawing footage from the Harry Potter’s Wizard Collection box set (due out Sept. 7), he treats us to a thoughtful examination of the film’s finer details, most notably the relationship between the three main characters, Harry, Ron and Hermione.

Perhaps the strongest appeal of the video is its ability to capture stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson growing before our eyes, a privilege reserved for the “film franchise era” they helped create.

Check out the video below.
