The first two films in the Wizarding World’s Fantastic Beasts franchise will be leaving HBO Max next month.
As of January 31, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be removed from HBO Max. They join a number of Jurassic Park films and DC Comics animated series that are also departing from the service on the same day.
The most recent Fantastic Beasts film, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, will remain on the streamer for the time being. Given the Fantastic Beasts series is made by WB, this move could indicate that the company is trying to sell the films elsewhere.
Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Katherine Waterston as Tina Goldstein, Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski, Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein, Ezra Miller as Credence, Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore, Jessica Williams as Professor Lally Hicks, and Callum Turner as Theseus, with Mads Mikkelsen as the new Gellert Grindelwald.
