All 8 Harry Potter Movies Conjure Up a New Streaming Home

March 29, 20244 Mins Read

Warner Bros.’ Harry Potter movies, based on the best-selling novels by J.K. Rowling, are heading back to Max.

The Harry Potter movies remain extremely popular among fans that grew up with Rowling’s children’s books and Warner Bros.’ film adaptations despite both ending over a decade ago. Now, per Forbes, after an extended stay on NBCUniversal’s streaming service, Peacock, the Harry Potter adaptations are returning to Max on April 1. With the Fantastic Beasts trilogy already streaming on the platform, fans will now be able to watch the entire Wizarding World franchise in one place.


‘Such a Shame’: Harry Potter Alum Responds to Co-Star Criticizing Adult Fans of the Films

Franchise star Jessie Cave reacts to what co-star Miriam Margoyles’ recently said about the Harry Potter films’ adult fan base.

Starring Daniel Radcliffe (as Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (as Ron Weasley) and Emma Watson (as Hermione Granger), the eight Harry Potter films were released almost annually by Warner Bros. from 2001 to 2011. Critically and commercially acclaimed, the franchise collectively grossed $7.7 billion at the global box office. With the original film series remaining beloved to this day, many fans were surprised when Warner Bros. announced plans to re-adapt all seven of Rowling’s books in April 2023.

However, instead of new films, Warner Bros. will adapt Harry Potter for the small screen as a Max streaming series. The current plan is to adapt each book as a season of television over the course of 10 years. Rowling is on board as an executive producer along with Neil Blair and Ruth Kenley-Letts. “Each season will be authentic to the original books and bring Harry Potter and these incredible adventures to new audiences around the world, while the original, classic and beloved films will remain at the core of the franchise and available to watch globally,” Max said in a statement at the time.

New Harry Potter Series Gets Exciting Update

While no actors have been cast in the Harry Potter reboot yet, the project has narrowed down who will be scripting the first season of episodes. The top three writers currently vying to become the showrunner for the live-action Harry Potter series are Emmy-winning producer Francesca Gardiner (His Dark Materials), Tom Moran (The Devil’s Hour), and Kathleen Jordan (Teenage Bounty Hunters). A decision is expected to be made by June.


Did the Chronicles of Narnia Inspire the Four Founders of Hogwarts?

Harry Potter defined fantasy for a generation with its epic tales. But one aspect may actually be tied to C. S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia.

Is the Fantastic Beasts Franchise Dead?

Before moving forward with a television adaptation of Harry Potter, Warner Bros. expanded on the original franchise with the spinoff/prequel series, Fantastic Beasts. Debuting in 2016, Fantastic Beasts primarily focused on Albus Dumbledore and his agents’ quest to defeat Grindelwald as the First Wizarding War and Second World War draw near.

Unfortunately, the Fantastic Beasts series did not achieve the same critical and commercial success as Harry Potter, with the third film — 2022’s The Secrets of Dumbledore — becoming the lowest-grossing installment in the Wizarding World franchise. Originally intended as a five-film saga, it is unknown at this time if Warner Bros. still plans to finish Fantastic Beasts or if the franchise will end without a proper conclusion.
