The Boy Who Lived is changing his U.S. streaming address again.

All eight original “Harry Potter” films from Warner Bros. are returning to HBO Max next month, after spending a little less than a year on NBCUniversal’s Peacock.

Starting Sept. 1, the eight wizarding films based on J.K. Rowling’s best-selling novels will be available on HBO Max: “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” Parts 1 and 2.

When HBO Max launched in May 2020, it included the octet of “Harry Potter” movies — but that was only a three-month carve-out on streaming rights the studio had sold to NBCU. In October 2020, Peacock began streaming the “Harry Potter” movies; now WarnerMedia has again reclaimed the rights to the magical film series for HBO Max.

Such popular library fare has proven to be a reliable way to attract and retain subscribers amid the fiercely competitive streaming wars. The eight “Harry Potter” films, released between 2001 and 2011, rank as the third highest-grossing movie franchise with a worldwide haul of $7.7 billion (behind Disney’s Marvel and Star Wars).

Also premiering on HBO Max next month are Clint Eastwood’s “Cry Macho” (Sept. 17) and James Wan’s “Malignant” (Sept. 10) — simultaneously with theatrical release and available only to subscribers on HBO Max’s no-ads $14.99/month plan — as well as limited series “Scenes From a Marriage” starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain (Sept. 12) and Season 3 of “Doom Patrol” (Sept. 23).

Other notable arrivals: “News of the World” (Sept. 4), “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Mortal Kombat” (both on Sept. 9), “The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly” (Sept. 15) and “Promising Young Woman” starring Carey Mulligan (Sept. 25).
