Is Harry Potter on Netflix?

Harry Potter is not on Netflix in the UK. Unfortunately for fans, it isn’t looking like it will be coming to the streaming platform anytime soon.

The franchise is owned and distributed by Warner Bros. According to New on Netflix, the licensing agreement between Warner Bros. and Sky/Now TV in the United Kingdom has been renewed for a further five years. This means that it is unlikely to appear on Netflix in the near future.

However, international Netflix users are in luck. If you live in another region and are wanting to rewatch all eight movies, you can do.

Every Harry Potter film from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone to Deathly Hallows Part 1 and 2 are available if you live in Portugal or Spain.

Later films in the series, starting at 2007’s Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, are available on Netflix in Canada, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico.

Who is the cast of Harry Potter and what are they up to now?

Daniel Radcliffe stars as Harry Potter. It has been almost ten years since we first saw him on-screen aged 11. Now 31, the actor can be seen most recently in the American comedy TV series Miracle Workers.

Rupert Grint plays Ron Weasley, one of Harry’s best friends. The actor, 32, recently welcomed his first child with actress Georgia Groome, 28, who have been together since 2011.

Although we don’t currently know their daughter’s name, fans of Harry Potter are hoping that the couple will pay homage to the film series by naming her Ginny after Ginny Weasley, Ron’s younger sister.

Hermione Granger is played by Emma Watson. Emma Watson, 30, has been very busy since Deathly Hallows Part 2 finished filming in 2011.

In 2014 she became a UN ambassador and launched the HeForShe campaign for gender quality. More recently, Emma Watson returned to the Hollywood limelight and starred in Greta Gerwig’s Academy Award-nominated 2019 adaptation of Little Women.
