WordPress Two Level Filters on Getting Custom Taxonomy Terms

It doesn’t make any sense querying with get_terms when:

quality = 'HD'

The reason is: The only term that has taxonomy genre equals to action, is action. And the only term that has taxonomy quality equals to HD, is HD. If you constrain them with AND, then basically you have nothing. Since there’s no term that satisfies both.

However, you can get movie custom posts that satisfies that criteria. Which means, you need movies with action genre and HD quality.

If that is the case, then you may use the tax_query argument in WP_Query:

$args = array(
    'post_type' => 'movie',
    'tax_query' => array(
        'relation' => 'AND',
            'taxonomy' => 'genre',
            'field'    => 'slug',
            'terms'    => 'action',
            'taxonomy' => 'quality',
            'field'    => 'slug',
            'terms'    => 'HD',
echo '<h1>Movies with action genre and HD quality:</h1>';
$query = new WP_Query( $args );
if ( $query->have_posts() ) {
    echo '<ul>';
    while ( $query->have_posts() ) {
        echo '<li>';
        echo '</li>';
    echo '</ul>';
} else {
    echo '<h2>Nothing is found</h2>';
