11 Movies & Shows Starring Harry Potter Actors To Stream Right Now
The Harry Potter series is literally magical, and it's understandable that some people just want to watch the movies over and over again. If that's what you do, don't worry — it's totally normal. But there's a whole list of movies and shows starring your fave Harry Potter actors that you can stream right now, too. Even though it's different from watching Ron, Hermione, and Harry together, you can still enjoy your most-loved wizards even when they're appearing in different roles.
If you're feeling hesitant about this, you might want to try easing into this more diverse movie repertoire. Start with Beauty and the Beast, which has a similar magical aspect to Harry Potter, and Emma Watson's role in it is basically Hermione 2.0. Once you get through that, you'll realize that you can totally watch other movies besides Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire five times in a row. You may even enjoy it.
Now that all eight HP movies are available on HBO Go, it is easier than ever to avoid straying away from Hogwarts. The good news is that your favorite stars from Harry Potter all have other movies and shows that they've made since the series wrapped in 2011. Many of them are available on streaming sites, too, so you should check these out. C'mon, take a chance on them — it's what Harry would want.
