The poster was originally estimated to sell for $3,000 - $6,000, but tripled that selling for $18,000. The sold poster is now one of the world’s most valuable Harry Potter movie poster sold to date. The poster itself was a prototype put into production by Warner Bros, but then pulled due to the costly nature of producing them. 

 

The man, Mr. Fox, who bought one of six posters is an avid collector of Harry Potter memorabilia also owning first editions of the beloved series.
