Oh this is SO SAD! This became such a huge event! It's all because the movie studio said they need to start paying to use the likeness of Harry Potter.
In May, Warner Bros., which owns the licensing to Harry Potter, sent a letter to the Chestnut Hill business district stating they could no longer use any names or images associated with Harry Potter.
Here's the statement from Chestnut Hill:
“We have had to roll back some of the very Harry Potter specific elements that are copyright controlled by Warner Brothers,” Philip Dawson, the executive director of the Chestnut Hill Business District, told NBC10.
Over 45,000 attended the event!
