The film became a hit both within and well beyond its time, with much praise being given to its lavish production and cast. Its memorable depiction of Mary’s magic, both literal and that of her words and kindness, earned it a well-deserved spot on Ranker’s list.

Aladdin (1992)

Widely regarded as one of Disney’s best-animated films, the original Aladdin is an obvious fan favorite. Despite its flaws, the film was a great product of its time, delivering a feel-good plot, an amazing soundtrack, and beloved personalities like Genie, a movie character fans would love to be friends with.

The entire premise of Aladdin is based upon magic, given that the film is about the titular character changing his life with Genie’s three wishes. The magic-centric storyline along with its discussions of using magic for good vs. evil is what makes it so worthy of this ranking.

Practical Magic (1998)

With an enviable cast lineup and an enticing plot, it’s no wonder Practical Magic reached the eventual cult classic status that it did. Having lost their parents, the film follows sisters Gillian and Sally as they navigate their eccentric household and the curse that was passed on to them.

While the film did not fare well upon release, it drew in a fan following in upcoming years. Given its original characters, depiction of witchcraft, and forbidden-to-fall-in-love storyline, it was bound to cast a spell on Ranker’s voters.

Now You See Me 2 (2016)

A sequel to the hit movie about magic heists, Now You See Me 2 showed the Four Horsemen months after their first adventure, escaping and scheming once more. The ensemble cast also saw the addition of another magician who is no stranger to magic, Daniel Radcliffe.

With even more plot twists, flare, and complicated magic tricks than the original, Now You See Me 2 was a welcome second installment to the franchise, with fans on Ranker placing it as a notable successor to the memorable and magical first film.

Now You See Me (2013)

The first Now You See Me was better received than its sequel and consequently ranks above it as well. Even though it is one of the movies with an ending so bad it ruined the film for fans, it had its redeeming qualities, such as making audiences fall for the unbelievable magic tricks and charismatic energy and chemistry of the Four Horsemen.

With its ensemble cast, captivating magic, and suspenseful story, the movie’s magic was certainly felt by its viewers. This is why it’s no mystery that both Now You See Me and its sequel are easily placed on Ranker’s list for best movies about magic.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016)

When Potterheads were told they would see the return of the Wizarding World on the big screen, they were ecstatic but also had very hesitant and high hopes for the Harry Potter spin-off. Luckily, the first Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them met their expectations, even with the many unpopular opinions about the series.

The new creatures, return of magic and cute charm of Newt and his crew made the first installment the best of its series. Although it didn’t quite recreate the magic of its parent series, the film still enchanted its audiences and magic lovers everywhere.

The Illusionist (2006)

Set in the late 1800s, The Illusionist tells the age-old tale of a lower-class man, Eisenheim, who falls for a higher-class woman, Sophie. Amidst forbidden love, classism, and Sophie’s unfortunate engagement to the wicked Prince Leopold, Eisenheim rises to prominence as a magician.

While his tricks start small, they grow to become incredibly elaborate, even seemingly incorporating dark magic to reach new heights. With its brilliant deceptions and emphasis on the power of illusions, The Illusionist is a classic tale that will make anyone want to study magic, albeit even if it’s just to deceive their enemies.

Stardust (2007)

Based on Neil Gaiman’s renowned novel, Stardust takes his tale to the big screen with another star-studded cast. The movie is an impressive fantasy film and embodies many tropes inherent to such movies involving magic, such as the hero’s quest and the contrast between good vs. dark magic.

The film adaptation was a hit on many accounts and is still an admired fan favorite. With its many turns, well-developed magical world, and complex characters, Stardust encapsulates much of what makes movies about magic so comforting and well-received to this day.

Harry Potter (2001-2011)

It’s undeniable that today the word magic is essentially synonymous with the Harry Potter franchise. Rowling’s vast magical universe has captivated the hearts of countless viewers, and the legacy of the Wizarding World is still going strong today, whether it be through things like newly scripted spin-offs, or fans’ must-read Harry Potter fanfictions.

The Harry Potter fandom stands as one of the strongest and largest ones out there today, so it is no surprise that the franchise neared the top of Ranker’s list. With their undying popularity and ongoing marketing, the Harry Potter films will likely be remembered as some of the best movies about magic for years to come.

The Prestige (2006)

An adaptation of Christopher’s Priest acclaimed novel, The Prestige has all the makings for a successful film about magic: Christopher Nolan’s direction, an impressive cast list, a solid, proven script with magical rivalry, and a late 1800s London setting.

The film was very well-received, with the ongoing tricks of Angier and Cutter keeping audiences on the edges of their seats throughout. Plus, the shocking ending has one of the most brilliant twists in all of magic movie history, earning it the top spot on Ranker’s list.
