If you love Harry Potter, here are 7 other fantasy movies on Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and …

When it comes to fantasy literature and movies, the Potterheads will proudly agree that nothing can come even remotely close to the Harry Potter franchise, while secretly hoping for their Hogwarts letter to arrive. Unless, of course, you’re a Muggle. While it will be unfair to draw a comparison, there are many movies that spin a fantasy story with equal perfection, if not better. We’ve shortlisted some of the best fantasy movies on Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and Disney+Hotstar that you can watch if you like Harry Potter.
Based on CS Lewis’ novel of the same name, this classic movie was an important part of our childhood for most of us. No one will judge you if you say that as a kid you once went inside your wardrobe, just to see if there’s a hidden door that leads to a magical world. The story revolves around four siblings who find a wardrobe that leads them to a fantasy world called Narnia, where they come across various adventures and are forced to fight an evil witch. The movie features James McAvoy, Tilda Swinton, William Moseley, Anna Popplewell, Skandar Keynes and Georgie Henley.
A spin-off and prequel to the Harry Potter series, the movie revolves around Newt Scamander, a British wizard and magizoologist, who embarks on an adventurous hunt to search for the magical creatures who escaped from his suitcase. Written by JK Rowling, the fantasy movie features Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterson, Dan Fogler, Carmen Ejogo, Ezra Miller and Colin Farrell.
If there’s one filmmaker who has mastered the theme of fairy tales and myths and explored it fully to his advantage, it is director Guillermo del Toro. Pan’s Labyrinth is a fantasy movie featuring Ivana Baquero, Sergi Lopez, Maribel Verdu, Doug Jones and Ariadna Gil. Set in 1944 in Spain, the story revolves around a girl named Ofelia, who comes across a mythical world where she meets some strange magical creatures while living with her mother and step-father during the Spanish Civil War.

Based on the novel The Lightning Thief, the story revolves around a teenager who learns that he’s actually the descendant of a Greek god.
