Relive all 12 “Fantastic Beasts” and “Harry Potter” titles on demand with HBO GO now. In addition, the “Harry Potter” Movie Marathon runs from April 8 – 23, 8 PM daily on Cartoon Network. Here are some of the Wizarding World’s hit shows that have captivated fans globally:
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018)
In the second “Fantastic Beasts” film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) is captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes to gather followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. To thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016)
In the first “Fantastic Beasts” movie, Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne stars as Newt Scamander, the wizarding world’s preeminent magizoologist. In 1926, Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident… were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
