Sometimes you just really need a Harry Potter movie marathon, know what I mean? Sure, there are TV shows and movies on Netflix and other streaming services that scrape the surface, but they can't bring the nostalgic magic like the eight films inspired by J.K. Rowling's epic book series.
While the final Harry Potter movie premiered nine years ago (yeesh), fans know their love of "the boy who lived" stands the test of time, and all we have to do is rewatch the series to relive the magic all over again. So how do you go about finding them to watch? The Harry Potter movies are not available on Netflix right now, but there are plenty of other places to go anytime you want to return to Hogwarts. Here's how to watch them:
