Haven't had time to watch movies on the big screen? Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, which started screening in Philippine cinemas last April 16, could be streaming on HBO GO by the end this month.

Though an official date hasn't been confirmed, the movie is expected to hit HBO Max—and its counterpart, HBO GO, in the Philippines—by the end of May. 

Along with the latest movie set in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, a new documentary series titled, Fantastic Beasts: A Natural History will also be coming soon to viewers in the Philippines.

Stephen Fry, who narrated the UK Harry Potter audiobooks, will embark on a fantastical journey across the world in the BBC One special, aired in the UK on BBC One and iPlayer, and HBO Max. 

In a unique collaboration with the BBC Natural History Unit, the Natural History Museum (who hosted the exhibition, Fantastic Beasts: The Wonder of Nature) and Warner Bros., unfurls all sorts of mysteries around fantastic beasts and real-life creatures across history that you may not believe could possibly exist.

In the documentary series, the host also chats with Wizarding World’s creator, J.K. Rowling, to discuss the inspirations behind the creatures we meet in Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts, while meeting with visual effects supervisor Christian Manz, who has lent his talents to several Wizarding World movies, bringing countless magical creations to life.

In case you’re in the mood for a long movie marathon and want to get whisked away to a world where magic exists while waiting for the latest movie to arrive, HBO GO is currently streaming 12 Fantastic Beasts and Harry Potter titles, namely:
