Warner Bros. Studio has announced that they will cease shipping of all Harry Potter films on 29 December 2011. The final instalment of the franchise hits South African shelves in November, giving consumers just over a month to complete their film collection before the films are pulled from the shelves.
As of Dec. 29, no more Harry Potter theatrical film titles (including Harry Potter: The Complete 8-Film Collection) will be shipped to stores, initiating a profitable home entertainment model not unlike the one at Disney, which periodically re-releases its classics for home purchase.

The moratorium on the films does not include Video-on-Demand services or the Harry Potter video games.
