J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels are some of the most beloved and critically-celebrated of all time, with the novels and film adaptations making the franchise one of the most financially successful too – it’s hard to think of a time when Harry Potter wasn’t a well-known pop culture phenomenon. At this point, it just seems like the franchise was always destined to be what it was.

However, a new stop-motion short film that has surfaced online recently (via Unpopular Now) seems to take the franchise down to its absolute grassroots, and is a healthy reminder of just what the novels do to anyone who reads them for the first time. Check it out below:

For anyone who’s read the Harry Potter novels or is a die-hard fan of the Wizarding World in general, this short film sort of perfectly captures what those books did when you read them, and how alive your imagination became even when you had stopped reading. I love this short piece of animation, and with audiences about to be sent back into J.K. Rowling’s imagination once again with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them next year - I think that we’re going to be seeing more of these Harry Potter tributes in the coming months. I can’t wait.
