Netflix Canada to add final four Harry Potter films in February

Accio Harry Potter films 5 through 8!

Netflix Canada is about to get a lot more magical.

The streaming giant has confirmed that the final four Harry Potter films will be making their way to Netflix Canada on February 1st.

This means that witches and wizards will be able to watch Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1 and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 right at the start of the new month.

Interestingly, Netflix Canada confirmed in a subsequent tweet that the first four Harry Potter films — The Philosopher’s Stone, The Chamber of Secrets, The Prisoner of Azkaban and The Goblet of Fire — were unable to be added due to “territorial licensing.” It’s currently unclear which territory has the rights to stream these movies, however.

Still, being able to stream at least half of the series is still sure to make a lot of Wizarding World fans happy, given that they’ve been requesting the Harry Potter films on Netflix Canada for a while now. Netflix Canada actually shot down hopes of any Harry Potter films coming to the service in August 2018, so this is a particularly welcome surprise.

It’s worth noting that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first entry in the five-film Harry Potter prequel series, is also available on Netflix Canada.
