Before you start wondering if this is a new instalment or extension of the Harry Potter
series, the answer is unfortunately no. But if you miss watching Harry, Hermoine, and Ron’s antics, well this is the perfect time for you to relive their magical tales. IMAX and Warner Bros are working together to bring back all eight Harry Potter
movies to the cinemas for one week starting October 13th. *screams internally*
The screening is in conjunction with the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
, which is also set in the Harry Potter
universe this November 18th. The one-week event also marks the first time Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
will be played in IMAX theaters.
Fans of the movie franchise will also be treated to a never-before-seen reel of the upcoming movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
. The screening event will be held internationally at selected IMAX theaters worldwide which will also include in-person appearances by the cast in Los Angeles and London. (Why do they always seem to forget about Malaysia?!)
So Potterheads, time to take out your wands and dust those robes because what better way to celebrate the return of Harry Potter
to the silver screen than dressing up in true wizard spirit! Tickets can be purchased via the IMAX website
. But before you get all excited about getting your hands on the tickets, we’ve checked with our local IMAX theatre in selected TGV outlets and it seems that they aren’t participating in the event. Boohoo! Maybe it’s best we start a petition now because we Malaysians obviously deserve to share the same experience with other Potterheads across the globe. Accio movie screening!
