Fantasy, fantasy, what are fantasy movies? Well, we all know what they’re surely not. They’re not movies about winning the lottery. They’re not movies about getting an A in that class you've never attended. And they’re definitely not movies about the Kardashians retiring from public life. So what are the fantasy movies streaming on Netflix? They’re magical romances, reinvented fairy tales, and comic book favorites. Mostly they’re just darn good movies. 

Some of the best fantasy movies on Netflix right now include classics like Ghostbusters and Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. Then you have everything from Van Helsing and Hellboy II: The Golden Army to kid-friendly fantasy flicks like The Iron Giant and Shrek. In short, Netflix has a long list of fantasy movies for everyone. 

Check out the list of fantasy movies on Netflix below and be sure to vote up your favorites.
