Comforting and familiar, re-watching our much loved trio, Harry, Ron and Hermione fight against darker powers still goes down well, and with Fantastic Beasts 3 delayed to 2022 there’s plenty of time to recap the adventures of the Boy Who Lived.

So if you’re hoping to escape into the magic of the wizarding world, read on to find out where you can watch the Harry Potter films in order.

What’s the correct order to watch the Harry Potter films?

In case you needed a reminder, there are seven books in the Harry Potter series, but the final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was split into two parts for the film adaptations. Therefore, the correct order to watch the Harry Potter films is:

  1. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001)
  2. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)
  3. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)
  4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)
  5. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)
  6. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)
  7. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 (2010)
  8. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 (2011)

Are the Harry Potter movies on Netflix or Disney+?

Sadly, no. Despite owning the rights to nearly every family franchise, the Harry Potter series are not in fact Disney films so are not available on The House of Mouse’s streaming service. The magical movies are not on Netflix either – but they are available to stream elsewhere.

How to watch every Harry Potter film in order

The good news for Potter fans is that there’s no need to spend ages searching for each film on different streaming services. All the Harry Potter films are available on Sky right now. You can be lining up Harry, Hermione and Ron’s best scenes quicker than you can say ‘accio!’ Well, almost.

Sky Cinema currently costs £11 extra a month, but Sky is fond of a TV package so we would always suggest you check their deals before signing up to anything.

If you are not a Sky customer, you can also watch on NOW TV. The Harry Potter series is streaming on NOW TV with Sky Cinema until 27 February 2021.

Hogwarts is no longer as safe as it once was in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. In this film, directed by David Yates, we’re introduced to horcruxes, objects that contain a piece of Voldemort’s soul, keeping him immortal. We also lose a major character in this film…
