This just in from the Daily Prophet, dropped on my breakfast plate by a snowy white owl: all 8 Harry Potter films will return to movie theaters. Is this not the most magical news you've heard all day? To mark the 20th anniversary of the movie adaptation of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, all the films, as well as spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, are heading back to the big screen. Let's pour ourselves a glass of butter beer to cheers the good news, shall we?
Fans of the wizarding world of Harry Potter can catch the films at Cinemark theaters later this month, according to Time. The movies will be played at 141 theaters across the United States during Cinemark’s Wizarding World XD Week, which will run from Aug. 31 through Sept. 6.
Tickets for Wizarding World XD week are surprisingly affordable, as well. You won't have to take out endless amounts of galleons, sickles, and knuts from your Gringotts account to see your favorite characters on the big screen again. The tickets are priced at just $5 per film. If you splurge for a pass to the whole festival, it will cost you just $25. The festival pass gives fans access to all 9 movies, as well as some fun collectibles.
Make sure to bring your wand so you can accio popcorn right to your seat. As Harry would say, "I love magic!" And for anybody who doesn't understand why you'd go watch 9 movies you've already seen in the theaters again, you know what to tell them:
