HBO Max, the new streaming service from Warner Media, now has all 8 Harry Potter films just in time for launch. The service which debuted earlier in the day surprised fans of the Harry Potter universe by featuring all eight films, including the spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
The Harry Potter films weren’t originally slated to be part of the service due to NCBUniversal holding the licensing rights. Warner Media Entertainment’s content acquisitions overseer Michael Quigley has been working with his team to bring the Potter franchise over to the streaming service for quite some time. A Warner Media spokesperson recently confirmed that the company managed to strike a deal with NBCUniversal to stream the films on the service.
Harry Potter joins the likes of Batman, Wonder Woman, Hannah Barbera, and many more on the HBO Max library.
