Harry Potter Spells in the Harry Potter Movies

Magic Spells Used by Harry Potter

In the Harry Potter series of novels by J.K. Rowling,  there are many magic spells used by Harry Potter.  We will focus in this post on the Harry Potter spells used in both the novels and the Harry Potter movies.  First, if you are unfamiliar with the Rowling novels, they center around a young boy whose name is Harry James Potter.  Harry Potter in both the novels and the Harry Potter movies, is a half blood wizard or half blood prince.  He’s more commonly known as Harry Potter.  Harry attends the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where he learns many magic spells and learns how to perform magic.  These Harry Potter spells come in very handy when he comes face to face with Lord Voldemort, his arch enemy in the Harry Potter movies.

Of course Harry Potter is not the only one able to use magic spells, in fact Harry was nearly killed by the Killing Curse, a magic spell used by Lord Voldemort when he tried to murder him as an infant.  Harry is the only known survivor of this magic spell.  It is believed by some that Harry Potter also possesses evil eye protection.  Finally Harry will be victorious when he uses Harry Potter spells of his own to fight his enemy.  Perhaps his enemies should have been better prepared with a Hand of Fatima amulet.

Powerful Harry Potter Spells

Things come to a head in  once Harry reveals himself to Lord Voldemort and engages him in battle in the Deathly Hallows using Harry Potter spells.  Voldemort is supposedly the true owner of the Elder Wand but really the Wand’s true master is Draco Malfoy, not Voldemort.   The backstory is that Draco learned the secrets of the wand from an ancient seawitch. Harry tries to explain this to Voldemort, but he refuses to listen him and tries to kill Harry with the magic spell known as the killing curse. Harry survives the attack using a Harry Potter spell – the Expelliarmus spell, which makes the killing curse ricochet back directly at Voldemort. Then, with no protection from his powerful Horcruxes, Voldemort is defeated and Harry comes into possession of all the spells or Hallows: The Stone, The Wand and The Cloak.  Harry Potter spells in the Harry Potter movies almost inevitably involve the use of Harry’s magic wand.
