The first entry in the fantasy epic began its climb up the Netflix charts


Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Barnstorm of success Rings of power and House of the Dragon proves that audiences still have a huge appetite for fantasy, so perhaps it’s no surprise that the debut entry in one of the highest-grossing fantasy epics of all time is starting to slowly climb up Netflix’s global streaming charts.

These are the evergreen songs of 2001 Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stonewhich entered Netflix’s top ten on September 4 and has now climbed to number eight (according to FlixPatrol). It started a stunning eight-film franchise that would come to dominate pop culture in the 2000s. Along the way, he gave steady work to a generation of British actors and introduced the world to Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and many other young actors.

But why is it popular right now? After all, as JK Rowling continues to undermine her reputation among young, progressive fans, the Harry Potter franchise finds itself in murky waters after disappointing Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secretsand there are no new movie theaters on the horizon.

Perhaps the only bright light on the horizon for Potter fans The legacy of Hogwarts at the beginning of 2023, which gives players the opportunity to create their own students and guide them through the darkest secrets of a magical school. But that’s still a pretty long way out, so it’s unlikely to drive viewing right now.

The simple answer is probably this Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone it’s just a touching watch. Sure, some of the CGI can be a bit creaky by today’s standards, but that’s about it.
