Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore, a new film from Warner Bros., has been announced for release on April 8 in China. For the first time in a long time, the China release date is set in advance of the domestic release date and coincides with the release date in the United Kingdom and a few other international markets. The announcement was made on the Warner Bros Weibo account this morning local time, and a new poster was also released.
As the market in China has developed, so has the appeal of the Harry Potter universe. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part II garnered $61 million in 2011 when the market was not nearly as large as it is today. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter zone in the Universal Beijing Resort theme park is quite renowned.
A remastered 4K 3D version of Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone (also known as Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone abroad) was launched in 2020, just as Chinese theatres were reopening. This contributed to the picture grossing more than $1 billion globally.
