If you're a fan of "Harry Potter" you better get physical copies of the films while they're hot - according to Entertainment Weekly, Warner Bros. will soon pull the franchise from store shelves.
Following the release of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" on November 11, the studio will give you a few weeks to snag any remaining theatrical "Potter" releases you don't have before they cease sending copies to stores.
The franchise, which began with 2001's "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," has generated $5.1 billion in home entertainment and interactives sales, according to EW.
The magical date when "Potter" films will begin to disappear is December 29, although digital copies (those sold electronically, and video on demand) and games won't be affected. A rep for Warner Bros. did not return a request for comment.
