The last Harry Potter movie is in theaters, signifying the end of an era and, as a result, the Harry Potter craze is in full force.  Harry Potter fan videos are being uploaded to YouTube like there’s no tomorrow.  Here’s a new one that you won’t want to miss.

YouTuber Jon Cozart aka Paint has put together an awesome a cappella version of the full Harry Potter story, all told in 99 seconds.  The a cappella piece is set to the tune of music from the Harry Potter soundtrack, including Hedwig’s Theme, Mr. Longbottom Flies, Prologue, Aunt Marge’s Waltz, Buckbeak’s Flight, Double Trouble and The Face of Voldemort.

It really does cover all the key plotlines in every single Harry Potter book, making it a great tool for reviewing the story before heading out to see the final film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
