The Wizarding World (Harry Potter) Timeline

Harry Potter has soared to be one of the most universally loved stories of all time. Almost everyone has read the books, and the series is responsible for many people (including this writer) falling in love with reading and writing. Enjoy this Wizarding World timeline.

What’s on the Wizarding World Timeline?

Everyone has heard of Harry Potter, but they might not know about Quidditch Through the Ages, or the upcoming films for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. This Harry Potter timeline includes the books, the films, and all of that supplement material. It assembles all of this information in a convenient chronological reading order for your convenience. It also includes the recent play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which is considered the 8th Harry Potter story, despite the fact that it’s not a 8th book.

As with any of our timelines, please let us know if there are any errors or if the timeline is missing any important information.

Where to Start?

Unequivocally, we recommend starting with the book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. That is the book that started it all and you will enjoy reading it most before watching the films.

Additionally, if you like this timeline, you might like some of our others, such as our Hunger Games timeline.
