Evanesco! HBO Max Is Making All Eight ‘Harry Potter’ Films Disappear in August

     July 20, 2020

harry-potter-prisoner-of-azkaban-daniel-radcliffe-sliceWhen HBO Max launched back in May, WarnerMedia’s new streaming service came with a magical surprise: All eight Harry Potter films were available, despite the report one day earlier that a streaming deal couldn’t be struck. What surprising and fun news that was! Anyway, all the Harry Potter films will be leaving the service in August.

The Wizarding World franchise isn’t the only big title heading out the HBO Max door. Both Kill Bill films are leaving August 31, as will John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, Dumb and Dumber, Magic Mike, Full Metal Jacket, and Pee-wee’s Big Adventure. Hurry up and stream these bad boys before they leave, or just watch them all in one day for the wildest movie marathon of all time.

(For the record, the Harry Potter movies will likely just move to Peacock, proving the “Streaming Wars” are actually just these services tossing the same, like, 18 movies back and forth.)

Below is the full list of titles leaving HBO Max in August. For more on the challenges HBO Max’s on-going rollout, here is why it’s still not available on Roku TVs.
