Goblet of Fire is the best Harry Potter book. FACT. Prisoner of Azkaban is definitely the best film, and Chamber of Secrets is probably the best game, but when you look back at the original novels, the fourth is the most memorable. It's the franchise's turning point from innocence to darkness, from chilhood to adulthood and from popular to phenomenon.
It also has the most action, meaning that any adaptation is bound to be epic and exciting. This newest LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 trailer is certainly the funnest I've seen so far. If you don't want to at least rent this game after watching this video, you're probably not a real fan...
And here are a few screen grabs for those too lazy to hit "Play."
