After initially premiering on the WarnerMedia streaming service earlier this year, the Harry Potter franchise is making a move in streaming platforms as it is set to hit the freshly-debuted Peacock at NBCUniversal later this year, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The eight-film franchise initially became available for streaming in May on HBO Max, which makes sense given the original films, as well as the prequel spin-off series Fantastic Beasts, have all been produced and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, but they will now be shifting gears and heading to Peacock over the next six months.

The Harry Potter franchise is beloved by people of all ages and represents the caliber of quality entertainment customers can expect to find on Peacock,” Peacock president of content acquisition and strategy Frances Manfredi said in a statement. “We’ve built a world-class collection of iconic movies and shows, and we will continue to expand the film library with treasured titles from NBCUniversal and beyond that will surprise and delight Peacock customers time and time again.

The move does also make sense, given that WarnerMedia and NBCUniversal struck a widespread deal in 2016 for the television and digital rights to the wizarding franchise that extends through 2025, not to mention that the two have been in partnership for over a decade now for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, an expansion of the Universal Studios theme parks that began with Orlando in 2010 and followed with Japan in 2014 and Hollywood in 2016.
