For blockbuster franchise fans, the Beijing International Film Festival will bring eight installments of the “Harry Potter” series to the city’s IMAX screens as part of its programme.

This will also be the prelude to an online game and offline exhibition fan carnival campaign in Beijing from between 1 September for one month, to mark the Back to Hogwarts Day (1 September), a momentous day in the wizarding world calendar.

‘Happy Potter’ is one of the most famous Studio backed American IPs consumed by the Chinese audience.
