Fantasy films often feature magic, whether it be in the form of a magical place, or characters with magical powers. Many science-fiction films could be classed as fantasy (especially the Star Wars series), but for the sake of this collection no sci-fi films are included. Here are some of the greatest fantasy films of all time.

The Wizard of Oz (1939)

Few films have lasted as well as The Wizard of Oz. The timeless tale of Dorothy, Toto and some magic ruby slippers.

The Princess Bride (1987)

A true cult classic. Full of fantastic lines that nearly 30 years later are often quoted. Buttercup and Westley prove love conquers all, even being mostly dead!

Pan's Labyrinth (2006)

A rather dark slice of fantasy served up by Guillermo del Toro. A young girl, Ofelia, explores a mysterious labyrinth and meets many strange characters!
