I watched the movies first and now I'm reading the books. It gives the books a visual when you see the characters already

Always read the books first. It's always better. I find if I have seen a movie it's hard to really get to know the characters while reading.

I like to watch the movie first because there are so many more characters in the books that you will be disappointed didn't make it to film but will be happily surprised when you read them. I find it keeps you more engaged and not bored when reading after the movie.

The books for sure! Obviously it's personal opinion but I think J K Rowling did an amazing job with this series and it really shaped me as a kid and I still adore them now!

I personally would watch the first movie and then read the books, only for the simple fact that there are some words that are strange, such as Hermione as well as others, and if you want to pronounce and read it correctly then I would watch at least the first one. The books are tons better though

Watch the movies. You'll be genuinely more into the books afterwards. Not that the movies are way worse than the books, but it'll help.

Everyone says to read the books first but i suggest to watch the movies. Your move experience won't be as good as I. You read the books first. When you watch the movies then read the books then you know all this new information and it makes it all the more interesting!

Definitely read the books first. I actually have been listening to the audiobooks, Stephen Fry did them. (I'm in love with his voice btw.) hahaha! But yeah I definitely had a greater appreciation for the books after reading them and then watching the movies. Hope this helps!
