Even if you've grown too old, pragmatic or jaded to believe in magic in your everyday life, movies provide a fictional universe where magic is utterly believable. Whether it's the secret lives of witches and wizards in 'Harry Potter' or the entirely magical world of Narnia or Middle-earth in 'The Chronicles of Narnia' and 'The Lord of the Rings,' cinematic history is full of magical worlds, places and people that audiences willingly immerse themselves in -- sometimes long after the credits have rolled (ask any die-hard 'Rings' or 'Potter' fan).

We've searched for some of our favorite films featuring magic we can believe in, and invite you to share your own magical movies you love to watch again and again.
