HBO Max Is Losing the Harry Potter Movies in August

HBO Max has a lot of great stuff on the way in August, including the return of the Game of Thrones franchise in the form of prequel series House of the Dragon. Unfortunately, the service is also losing quite a few great titles, some of which belong to the same franchise. The Harry Potter films, which have been a mainstay of HBO Max's lineup, are set to exit the roster at the end of the month.

The August newsletter for HBO Max revealed that all eight films in the Harry Potter series are leaving on August 31st. So if you've got an HBO Max subscription and have been thinking about rewatching Harry Potter, now is the time to do it.

There will still be a place to watch the Harry Potter movies after they leave HBO Max. All eight films were added back to Peacock's streaming roster this month, so they'll still be easy to find. Given that Harry Potter is a Warner Bros. franchise, though, expect the movies to be back on HBO Max at some point in the future.

The Harry Potter films aren't the only titles set to leave HBO Max next month, sadly. Movies like The Dark Knight and Ocean's Eleven are on their way out, along with a horde of others. You can check out the full list of HBO Max August departures below.
