Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

This time around, magical zoologist Newt Scamander is sent to Paris by none other than Albus Dumbledore (played by Jude Law), in search of wanted criminal Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). Filled with new magical creatures and old friends, this Fantastic Beasts is bigger and more dangerous than ever and is in cinemas now!

The Prestige

From Christopher Nolan, the genius behind Interstellar, Inception and The Dark Knight Trilogy, The Prestige is a terrifying spin on magic. It follows two duelling magicians, played by Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman, as they attempt to outdo one another. Amazing stuff. Streaming now on Netflix.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Up until Prisoner, the Harry Potter films were essentially just very well made kids movies. With the third instalment in the series, though, we suddenly had a dark, mysterious spin on magic. Harry, Ron and Hermione face their greatest threat yet, plus we get a new Dumbledore with Michael Gambon taking over the role! Available now on iTunes and Google Play.

Bedknobs and Broomsticks

If you’re looking for a magical adventure for the entire family, Bedknobs and Broomsticks is perfect for you. It’s a live action Disney movie in the vein of Mary Poppins starring Angela Lansbury as a witch in training during World War II. Absolutely the most fun you’ll have watching magical misadventures on the small screen! Available now on iTunes and Google Play.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

In this reboot of Sabrina, our favourite witch is thrown into a supernatural horror about as far from the original goofy TV series as you could get. Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) is half witch, half mortal, and as a result has to protect one world from the other, all the while trying to maintain her relationship with her boyfriend Harvey. Streaming now on Netflix.

The Magicians

 In this smart, sexy, and very magical show, Quentin a depressed college student, learns that magic is real. He gets accepted into Brakebills University, an exclusive school for actual magicians. Things get very dark very fast, though, when the realities of magic rear their head. Available now on Foxtel Go.
