Whether you’re potty for Potter and need no excuse to daub on a lightning bolt scar and don a pair of specs, or a sleeper fan who’s all Vernon Dursley on the outside but low-key knows the entire Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes product line off by heart, nothing conjures up that magical feeling quite like Harry Potter. 

The wizarding world (Voldemort in particular) may have looked very different in your mind's eye when you first read JK Rowling's books, but the film adaptations ensured that, no matter what comes next, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint would forever be Harry, Hermione and Ron for generations of fans.

They also introduced the late, great Alan Rickman, Robbie Coltrane and Richard Harris to young audiences and ensured that Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes and Maggie Smith would go on to occupy a confusing place in the hearts and minds of certain viewers long beyond their adolescent years.

We've already ranked the Harry Potter movies from worst to best, but where can you watch all the Harry Potter films? Where must you delve in order to relive Voldemort’s development from noughties CGI scalp-being to agony aunt to demon baby and, eventually, the Dark Lord we all know and love, and the increasingly fortuitous methods by which that swine Harry Potter and his self-righteous friends would thwart him?

Hang on, you’re telling me the guy intent on world domination wasn’t the goodie? Scratch everything I just said, it must have been the imperius curse talking. 

Here's how to watch all the Harry Potter films on Netflix from anywhere.
