Harry Potter and the Thinker’s Stone printed in the UK on June 26, 1997. A yr later, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone debuted within the U.S. The franchise remains to be going robust 20 years later, as Incredible Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald hit theaters this week, marking the 10th movie within the Potter Universe.

There’s a fairly easy cause that Warner Brothers retains making Harry Potter motion pictures: They maintain earning profits.

In line with an infographic by Statista, the franchise has hauled in $25 billion in income since 1997 — $8.5 billion on the field workplace (if you happen to embrace worldwide income from The Crimes of Grindelwald), $7.7 billion in books and one other $9.three billion from toy and DVD gross sales.

By comparability, the Marvel franchise has grossed $17.5 billion worldwide by 20 motion pictures. The highest earner within the franchise has been Avengers: Infinity Warfare, which has remodeled $2 billion thus far. The very best grossing Harry Potter film to this point is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Half 2, which made $1.three billion.
