4 of the Best Magical Movies about Witchcraft and Wizardry

If you are stuck on what movie to watch this weekend I have put a few of my all-time favourites together below, all themed around magic of course! As you may notice most of the films are family friendly as are most magic shows out there.

  • Harry Potter Sequel 2001 – 2011

Now if you have not seen any of the films this is a movie marathon I would highly recommend, there are now 8 fantastic films for you to catch up on so what are you waiting for!

With the first instalment ‘The Philosophers Stone’ being released back in 2001 these films really have come away and been a big part of many people’s childhood memories. The main stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint & Emma Watson have remained consistent throughout each release giving the films some familiarity across the 10 years. You should go and find out what all the fuss it about for yourselves, let me know what you think!

 

Harry Potter

  • Bed knobs & Broomsticks – 1971

A Disney musical classic that has been watched by many, three siblings that have been evacuated due to war find them self in the home of an apprentice witch. They have many adventures on the magical bed that can travel anywhere it’s asked to. Great for a Saturday night in front of the TV with the children and some popcorn.

  • Hocus Pocus -1993

After three long centuries three witches are resurrected on the night of Halloween and it’s left up to two teenagers to put an end to the wicked witch’s reign of terror. Packed full of humour and magical antics Hocus Pocus is a film to add to your must watches.

 

Hocus Pocus

  • Matilda – 1996

A firm family favourite for many, Matilda definitely deserves a spot in my top 5 magical films. Directed by Danny DeVito the black comedy of this Roald Dahl story really comes across brilliantly.

I am sure many of you know the story very well but for those of you that haven’t: a young girl named ‘Matilda’ who has discovered her magical powers at a young age is unappreciated and unloved by her family. After many years of being denied a place in school by her parents Matilda is sent to Miss Trunchbull’s school where she realises the full potential of her gift.  Matilda
