'Harry Potter' Movies Live on in Limited-Edition 'Forever' Stamp Set
Harry Potter's wizarding adventures may be behind him, but as far as Warner Bros. and the United States Postal Service are concerned, he'll go on forever -- in stamp form, at least.
The USPS and Warners unveiled the limited-edition Harry Potter Forever Stamp Collection at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Fla., yesterday, showcasing 20 new stamps, each one featuring characters from the Warner Bros. adaptations of J.K. Rowling's internationally beloved series of novels.
"The magical world created by J.K. Rowling and brought to life over the course of eight films continues to captivate audiences around the world," said president of Warner Bros. Consumer Products Brad Globe, who added that Warners was "proud to partner with the U.S. Postal Service to offer fans such a unique and historic way to engage with the beloved characters, creatures and adventures in the series."
Equally proud was Postal Service Board of Governors chairman Mickey Barnett, who said he hoped that the "majestic" stamps would "inspire fans of all ages." The stamps are available online at the USPS website and USPS eBay store. They can also be ordered by phone at 800-STAMP24 or purchased in select post offices.
Of course, if the USPS really wanted to get Potter fans excited, they'd get to work training owls to deliver the mail every morning. Surely, it can't be that hard, right?
