5 fantasy movies/series you should watch

Updated: Mar 27, 2022

From Wingardium Leviosa (Harry Potter) to You shall not pass! (The Lord of the Rings) there are many movies/series out there where you can see magic in action! Fantasy magic to be exact. As a kid I always loved magic (still do hehe) and am a major fan of high fantasy movies/series where one can see magic. I've composed a short list of movies/series where magic can be seen.

Warning: This article contains SPOILERS. Read at your own discretion. I've tried to give as little SPOILERS as possible.

1. The Wheel of Time

First of is The Wheel of Time. This series is based on the book series by Robert Jordan. Moiraine, a member of the Aes Sedai, a powerful group of women who can channel the One Power, is the protagonist of The Wheel of Time. She searches the remote Two Rivers with her Warder, Lan, for a group of five young villagers, believing one of them is the reincarnation of the Dragon, an extraordinarily strong channeller who destroyed the world in the previous cycle. The Dragon Reborn is said to either save or destroy the world from a primordial evil known as the Dark One. This series on Prime Video promises an exciting adventure.

2. Eternals

An unexpected tragedy compels the Eternals, ancient aliens who have been living on Earth in secret for thousands of years, to emerge from the shadows to fight mankind's oldest foe, the Deviants. Come join their adventure while they rid the world of Deviants and learn a most unexpected secret. The Eternals can be watched on Disney+.

3. Warcraft

When the Orcs of Draenor's homeland is destroyed by evil fel magic that uses life-force, the powerful warlock Gul'dan constructs a gateway to Azeroth and gathers members of the Orc clans to become the Horde. The invading orcs bring destruction to the lands of Azeroth. The king of Azeroth, with the help of a group tries to defend his nation meanwhile learning of a traitorous secret. Warcraft can be watched on Netflix.

4. Clash of the Titans

When Perseus, the demigod son of mighty Zeus, the king of the gods, sees his mortal family fall, he resolves to get vengeance on Hades, the frightening ruler of the Underworld. As men muster the courage to rebel against the gods of Olympus, Hades threatens to unleash the fabled sea-monster Kraken unless the fair Princess Andromeda freely gives herself as a sacrifice. Join Perseus in this adventure as he tries to safe the city of Argos and the rest of the world from the wrath of the gods. Clash of the Titans can be watched on Netflix. If you like Clash of the Titans, there is also a sequel called Wrath of the Titans (HBO MAX).

5. Fantastic Beasts and where to find them

Newt Scamander, a British young activist magician, arrives in New York in the mid-1920s with a curious leather luggage containing a variety of magical creatures that exist among us. Newt's valuable suitcase goes missing, and to make matters worse, some creatures manage to escape, in the midst of an already delicate balance of secrecy and the rising tragedies attributed to the dark wizard, Gellert Grindelwald. Follow Newt in this adventure where he befriends an Auror and a muggle to stop the dark wizard, Grindelwald. For those who are fans of Harry Potter, Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them offers something new to see but still gives a nostalgic feeling. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them can be watched on HBO Max. If you like this movie, there is also two sequels Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.

I hope you liked this list I've comprised. There are many more (high) fantasy movies/series that I like. I might comprise another list in the future. Leave a comment below about your favorite fantasy movies/series and which fantasy movies or series you suggest.
