Movie Music and More #29: "Harry Potter"

What's up everyone!? James here with a Movie Music and More featuring Harry Potter! The Harry Potter franchise is full of whimsical tracks that capture magical nature of the film series. John Williams composed the score for the first three films, and his early work is arguably the strongest in the franchise. However, the various other composers in the later films also delivered high quality music, as well as rearranging the iconic main theme.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is the third installment in the Harry Potter series and the last one that John Williams' composed the soundtrack for. Some of this track reminds me of one of the themes use in one of the Star Wars movie with a Harry Potter theme twist.

This is one of my favorite tracks from the movie. If a theme is effectively composed to fit a scene, you should be able guess what the scene is about with just the track and this theme does exactly that!

OK, John Williams did not compose this track but I really like this one. I listened to it on a loop many times while writing the review for the Order of the Phoenix. I even liked this track before watching the movie!

  1. The choral version of "Double, Double Toil and Trouble" that got played in the trailer for Prisoner of Azkaban is what got me interested in Harry Potter as a whole in the first place.


One rule: No strong profanity. If you want to link to one of your posts, please do; I am always interested in other reviews and such.
