If Warner Bros. and Disney had their way, there would be a new Harry Potter and Star Wars movie every year. Oh wait: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story come out in November and December, with Fantastic Beasts 2 and Star Wars: Episode VIII soon after. I was really worried about Warner Bros. and Disney for a second there. Anyway, to build buzz for Eddie Redmayne’s quirky suitcase adventures in New York, the original Harry Potter movies — all eight of them — will be released back into theaters for a very limited time. As in, just one week, and only in IMAX.
The week-long engagement begins on Oct. 13 with a “global fan event,” which according to the press release involves fans at select theaters being “treated to a never-before-seen reel from [Fantastic Beasts], as well as in-person appearances by talent from the film at two IMAX locations in London and Los Angeles, a live Q&A, and more.” Finally, a chance to ask Redmayne if he has a setting between whispering and screaming. There are multiple packages available: Single Ticket; Day Access (three or more shows in one day); and Four-Show Access (four shows any day). There’s also Festival Access, where you get unlimited access throughout the event, just in case Freeform’s daily Harry Potter marathon doesn’t have enough Weasley action for you.
