How Much MONEY Did the Harry Potter Films Make? (2001 - 2018)

Welcome to Harry Potter Theory. Today we’re discussing the Harry Potter films in the context of MONEY. Now, at the end of the day, in spite of all of the magic that the Harry Potter films introduced, we do have to remember that these films needed to make money in order to continue. If the films flopped, then we wouldn’t have gotten any more.The books were a massive success, but that certainly didn’t ENSURE the success of the films, as we’ve seen plenty of film adaptations fail in other franchises. In November 2001, the film adaptations of Harry Potter began- beginning with Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone. This was the beginning of a new era, and a market for film dominated by JK Rowling’s works. Over the course of time (20 years to be exact) with 10 films released to date (including Fantastic Beasts), the Harry Potter franchise has collectively grossed over 9.18 billion dollars in the box office, making it the THIRD most successful film franchise behind Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The best books didn’t necessarily end up being the best films, and some of the best films ended up being a challenger for their book counterpart. In today’s video, I’m going to be RANKING the Harry Potter films by their box office-earnings, deciding once and for all WHICH film was most successful.

Let’s get started.
