Fellow wizards, witches, squibs, muggles, and all other beings, creatures and spirits, it looks like we’re due for a 19-hour shut-in come January 15, 2019 (well, for those of us with access to Netflix living in Australia or New Zealand), because all eight movies of the Harry Potter franchise are making their way to the streaming platform.
And isn’t that just marvellous news? We’ll get to revisit the Second Wizarding War all over again, without the need of a Pensieve!

It’s been years since Voldemort’s timely (could be timelier) demise, but we can’t wait to revisit Harry as he grows from the eleven-year-old wizarding darling to the angstier, broodier seventeen-year-old slayer of the Dark Lord. As a matter of fact, the film series spans a whole decade, from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone — released in 2001 — to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 — released in 2011. Well, there’s also now The Cursed Child (although that one’s a play) and the Fantastic Beast prequels, but those aren’t streaming on Netflix (ANZ) for now.
Evidently, the rest of us Potterheads in other Netflix regions are going to be Incredibly Envious. But as Dumbledore says, “Help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it.” Well, Netflix, we’re asking for the Harry Potter film series. Please give us the Harry Potter film series, many thanks in advance.
