Warner Bros. has asked actor, Johnny Depp, to step down from his role as evil wizard, Gellert Grindelwald, in the Harry Potter spinoff, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, according to Paste.
HBO Max started streaming it’s content which also means that the Harry Potter films are all streaming on the app. Even the sequel to the spin off franchise, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, are available to watch on the app.

This is great news for all Harry Potter fans! Also for WarnerBros who have fought for the streaming rights for all of their library. Harry Potter especially, considering all of the films in total grossed two billon dollars. However, the films weren’t in the original plans for HBO Max due to NBCUniversial having the cable rights to the franchise. Now both companies have the rights to the franchise until 2025! How amazing is that, we can stream them online and on cable. It’s the best of both worlds.

There are other great titles on HBO Max, like popular sitcoms, Friends and The Big Bang Theory. The Lord of the Rings franchise and DC’s Wonder Woman are available as well. I am excited to finally watch the Big Bang Theory, and even more excited that I can stream the Harry Potter movies online. I just binged all the movies and the qualities of my DVDs aren’t as great as they used to be, so this couldn’t have come at a greater time. I was just about to purchase digital copies and now I can just stream them for $14.99 a month!
