Is Harry Potter on Disney Plus?
When he isn't helping you watch TV abroad, David enjoys watching comedy and documentaries. He's a big fan of The Detectorists and Blue Planet. He also loves watching English football, for his sins he supports Arsenal.
More so than perhaps any other film franchise, the Harry Potter movie series has defined the generation that grew up watching it every bit as much as the books did.
Demand for repeat viewings is high and so too is interest from each new generation that discovers the books and wants to see how Hollywood brought JK Rowling’s fantastical world to life.
Disney Plus feels like it would be the natural home for the Harry Potter movies. So, it might come as a bit of a surprise to find that it is not available on that particular streaming service.
The question is, where can you stream the Harry Potter movie series? In this guide, we have all the answers to let you watch Harry Potter from anywhere.
Where can I stream Harry Potter?
Harry Potter can be found on Netflix, but before you reach for the remote, unfortunately, this is not the case in every country. Viewers in a lot of countries will hunt through their Netflix library in vain.
However, it is available in Turkey. “Great, but I’m not in Turkey right now”, I hear you cry.
It’s a good point. And the good news is that there is a way to watch Harry Potter on Turkish Netflix even if you aren’t in Turkey at the minute.
How do I watch Harry Potter on Netflix?
You could go back to Turkey to enjoy streaming Harry Potter on Netflix whenever you like.
But an easier solution is to use a Virtual Private Network, or VPN app, to unblock it where you are right now.
VPNs work by sending all of your internet traffic through an external server. This server can be anywhere in the world, including… Turkey!
Now, if you connect your VPN to a Turkish server, when you try and log into Netflix, it will assume that you are based there too. It will therefore make the Turkish Netflix library available to you.
Which includes, you guessed it, the Harry Potter movies.
Where to get a VPN?
The trick is to choose the right VPN to unblock Harry Potter on Netflix, and that’s where we can help.
The best VPN to use for this is ExpressVPN.
Why? Well, it has multiple Turkish servers and is able to use them to unblock Turkish Netflix.
It also has lightning-fast connection speeds, apps for just about any device you would care to mention, and a 30-day money-back guarantee giving you plenty of time to try before you buy.
You could also try NordVPN and CyberGhost VPN too. They tick most of the same boxes and come with a 30-day money-back guarantee too.
But truth be told, when it comes to unblocking Harry Potter on Netflix, neither is as good as ExpressVPN, but the choice is yours.

What is Harry Potter?
The Harry Potter movies need little introduction.
They tell the story of Harry, a young boy who learns that he is ‘the boy who lived’, a hero who helped defeat the villainous wizard Voldemort and his army of death eaters and so help save the magical world from the forces of evils.
The movies tell the story of his time at the Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, where he must learn how to become a wizard, while at the same time fighting once more against the forces of evil.
The movie series, which consists of no fewer than eight films, brings JK Rowling’s incredible creations to life vividly using the best special effects and some of the biggest names in the acting world.
They are a majestic achievement, some of the best family movies ever made, and a must-watch for just about everyone. As the Guardian rightly put it on the 20th anniversary of the first film being released, it is still ,and always will be, “a very entertaining and spectacular movie.”
Who stars in Harry Potter?
It would perhaps be easier to list the actors who didn’t appear in the Harry Potter movies as it really does read like a who’s who of the acting world.
Let’s start with the main three children, Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry, Emma Watson (Hermione) and Rupert Grint (Ron), all of whom are now stars in their own right.
The larger-than-life Robbie Coltrane plays the giant Hagrid, while Dumbledore is played by Richard Harris and later Michael Gambon. Other teachers are portrayed by Alan Rickman, Dame Maggie Smith, and Ian Hart.
The long list of additional stars to appear includes Ralph Fiennes, John Cleese, Jason Issacs, Julie Walters, Kenneth Branagh, Miriam Margolyes, Gary Oldman, David Thewlis, Timothy Spall, Robert Pattinson, Brendan Gleeson, Helena Bonham Carter, Jim Broadbent.
The list just goes on and on.
Harry Potter is the seminal movie series of a generation. But if you want to stream it on Disney Plus you are out of luck.
Fortunately, you can find it on Netflix, but only in a few libraries, such as Turkey.
To watch outside Turkey, you will need the help of a VPN like ExpressVPN.
Just sign up on their website, download the ExpressVPN app, log in, connect to a Turkish server, and then search for Harry Potter.
JK Rowling’s incredible creation lures you in. And if you haven’t been consumed by Harry Potter already, you soon will be.
