All eight Harry Potter movies will be back in theaters for a week, starting Oct. 13.

Even better, the movies will be in IMAX. This will be the first time "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" and "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" -- the first two films in the series -- have been converted to that format.

It's all part of a promotion for the upcoming film, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," a Potter prequel that comes out on Nov. 18.

The films will begin airing Oct. 13 in 2-D IMAX. They'll feature previews and clips from "Fantastic Beasts" and taped greetings from star Eddie Redmayne and other stars of the new film.
