The 'Harry Potter' Movies Are Now On Netflix Canada And Americans On Twitter Are Extremely Jealous

If you somehow missed the big news, the last four Harry Potter films were just uploaded to Netflix Canada.

So you can officially use our terrible and cold weather to your advantage, curl up under the covers with some butterbeer, and binge the end of the saga of our favourite boy wizard.

TL;DR Canadian Netflix just got the last four Harry Potter films and fans in the U.S. are kind of ticked, to put it nicely.

Earlier this month, Netflix Canada dropped the news on Twitter.

I know you're upset we're only getting the last four Harry Potter movies, but this is your reminder that Netflix US isn't getting any of them.

They weren't shy about it, either, and kind of rubbed it in the States' face.

I mean, I don't blame them, but as an HP lover... I felt the sting of that burn.

Harry Potter:

Canada = 4
US = 0

January 24, 2019

Everyone in Canada has been totally stoked.


Like I said, the weekend is upon us and the time for binging has never been better.

Best thing @netflix did was add the Harry Potter movies

Most of the tweets about it are shouts of joy from Canadians and other countries that have been waiting for this day.

But it didn't go unnoticed by our American neighbours...

@netflix put harry potter on netflix now, canada just dragged us

January 25, 2019

There are distribution rights to consider with films as large as the one in the Harry Potter franchise so we won't be getting all eight films in Canada.

But at least we've got some of them. Because down south, they don't have it so lucky.

Netflix Canada has all of the Lord of the Rings movies and is about to have all the Harry Potter ones too. US Netflix is trash

January 23, 2019

I just wanna know why @netflix thinks it’s okay to not have Harry Potter on Netflix in the US but it is in Canada??? I’m highly upset.

January 4, 2019

They obviously aren't just mad cause it's us that got them, though. Because other countries are getting called out, too.

It's the principle of the thing!

And clearly,Harry Potter is something worth denouncing your citizenship over.

Harry Potter movies coming to Netflix Canada so it’s official I’m never going back to the US

January 23, 2019

so why the fuck are all the harry potter’s gonna be on netflix in australia and new zealand but not the fucking US?????

January 25, 2019

I'm a lover of the Wizarding World, so I get where they're coming from.

The films are pretty much an annual staple for me around Christmastime.

Yo @netflix we need to talk if canada can get the harry potter movies why cant the us? Please consider getting these thanks.

January 25, 2019

So, I also totally understand why people are a little peeved that we're only getting the first four.

Like this Canon Queen below says, we must teach the youth!

idk why netflix is being stingy with harry potter like put it on already pls

January 30, 2019

How am I supposed to binge Harry Potter when the first 4 aren’t there!!!! #wtf#Netflix this isn’t okay. How are the newbies supposed to understand the wizard ing world without watching all of them!? They need the backstory!!!! #Disappointing

February 1, 2019

Now that I know all eight films are available in Australia and Spain...

Maybe I'm going to have to move, too.

Dear Netflix,
How is it that France and other European countries can have all 8 Harry Potter movies; but the US and Canada can’t?

A witch

November 5, 2018

Harry Potter:

France = 7
Canada = 4
US = 0

Pour une fois qu'on gagne. 💪🏻 @NetflixFR

January 25, 2019

Even France needed to chime in once more, to make sure we knew that while we're over here feeling superior to the States, they're over in Europe feeling superior to all of us.

What else is new?

the entire harry potter series is on netflix in australia but not canada
... this is honestly so sick and twisted

January 17, 2019

How are you gonna put all Harry Potter movies on Netflix in France, Belgium and Australia but NOT CANADA?! @Netflix_CA

January 16, 2019

Does Netflix derive some kind of sick pleasure from torturing us all with just enough Harry Potter to entice us, but not enough to give us the whole story?!

I'm sure the distribution snafus will be sorted out quickly enough.

And ifyou can't wait, why not move to a more progressive, HP-appreciating Netflix region?!

Seemsappropriate to me...
