After the release of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," last week internetretailer.com decided to assess how successful the sales of Harry Potter merchandise will be now that the final movie has been released. They interviewed several e-retailers who offer Harry Potter products. Among them are costume e-retailers CostumeCraze.com, CenturyNovelty.com, ticket box office, Fandango.com, book and media sellers, BarnesandNoble.com, Indiqo.ca, and HarryPotterWallArt.com whose products consist life-size wall decals and Harry Potter posters. The full article can be found here.
Sellers of Harry Potter products admitted that sales are quite pouring in right now. The release of final Harry Potter movie has resulted in increased activity of Harry Potter fans. Founder of HarryPotterWallArt.com Rick Barretto thinks that this will continue into 2012, but what about after that? Will the Harry Potter market decline? Rick Barretto does not believe that the end of the Harry Potter series means the end of Harry Potter popularity. He compares the Harry Potter phenomenon with the Star Wars phenomenon..." fans will remain fans long after the movie leaves the theater".
The founder of HarryPotterWallArt.com was interviewed at LeakyCon 2011, the non-official conference of Harry Potter fans, which took place last week in Orlando, Florida. Images from the show are available for viewing at HarryPotterWallArt.com Facebook page.
