Every Potterhead knows J.K. Rowling’s novels are superior to the movie adaptations. There’s more detail, more locations, and a larger cast of characters. And whilst they’ll always be complaints about certain plot holes, her books are still hugely popular with children, teenagers, and adults across the globe.
No matter how many times you re-read Rowling’s stories, you always notice something new, whether it be a small detail about the castle or a foreshadowing of a future plot point. Even the most dedicated Harry Potter fan doesn’t know everything about these books – there’s simply too much to remember.
But we can get a good measure of our level of understanding by tackling questions about Harry’s magical adventures. For this quiz, you’ll need to know an awful lot of detail if you want to get the top score. And if you’ve only seen the movies, you’ve got no chance.
Though some of these questions will be easy enough for casual fans, many of them will require an in-depth knowledge of the wizarding world.
