The Harry Potter franchise has always had a special place in our hearts, but Potterheads will know the struggle is real when it comes to having a well-deserved movie marathon, as not all the movies have been readily available on streaming platforms. Well, it seems our spells have been answered, as Netflix UK has confirmed that the complete Harry Potter series will be released on the platform on 17 May. Yes, all 8 movies. Subscribers can finally kick back and watch every single one of them at any time they please.
The Warner Bros. movies previously weren’t able to be shown on the streaming platform due to issues with licensing, but a new agreement means that fans can finally board the Hogwarts Express and join the wizarding world once again. This is especially exciting as we await more news of the new TV series adaptation.
Based on the novels by J.K. Rowling, the movies feature a young Daniel Radcliffe in the titular role, as well as Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley, and Emma Watson as Hermione Granger. Of course, it’s important to note that the author has come under fire in recent years for her transphobic comments on Twitter, but all three of the Harry Potter stars have since spoken out against her views. Despite Rowling’s transphobia tainting the beloved universe, fans will undoubtedly be excited to re-watch the films again. Now, if you need us, we’ll be glued to Netflix.
