Netflix has been killing it with their original content as of late but you would be lying if you said there wasn't a void on the streaming site when it comes to old favourites. It's definitely not a new complaint, considering Netflix is constantly trying to push out new content to distract their users from the fact that they can't watch their beloved classics. One of the biggest desires streamers have had was for the platform to get the Harry Potter movies- and it looks like that wish has finally come true.
Earlier this year, rumours swirled that the Potter movies would be making their way onto the site, Potterheads were crushed to find out at the time it was just a rumour. Now though, Netflix themselves has announced it meaning yes, the Harry Potter movies are on Netflix. The news came straight from Netflix Canada's official Twitter platform a few weeks ago:
you guys have been asking for them and they're finally coming ...... the final four Harry Potter movies arrive on Feb 1.
As explained in the tweet, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince as well as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows parts one and two are available starting February 1st. While fans are a little confused why only the final four movies are going to be available, Netflix users across Canada are still freaking out:
Aaaahhhhhh I’m so excited!!!!!

For Netflix users who have never seen the movies before, you can finally check them out to see if they are worth the hype.
While it's unclear how Netflix was able to get the rights to the massive movies in the first place, it's not a stretch to assume that the rumour from earlier this year may have kickstarted Netflix's efforts to bring the movies onto the platform. Regardless of how they managed to make their way onto the platform, fans are excited nonetheless!
