Shut the front Dumble-door! All eight "Harry Potter" films in the franchise are returning to theaters later this month — and even better, they'll be in Imax.

Ahead of the Nov. 18 release of "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," a Potter prequel, Warner Bros. plans to cast a spell of excitement among fans and newcomers of the classic franchise.

The films will start airing on Oct. 13 in 2-D Imax and feature glimpses from "Fantastic Beasts" as well as taped greetings from star Eddie Redmayne and other talent from the new film. According to The Huffington Post, some of the movie's stars will appear for Q&A sessions in London and Los Angeles.

This will be the first time that "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" and "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" will be digitally supersized for Imax screens.

Hagrid will no doubt be appreciative.

This one's truly a Keeper! And we think that buying tickets early is a wise thing to do, as the whole event may just sell out. Why not? Granger things have happened, y'know!
