The first U.S. postage stamps to feature images from Harry Potter movies go on advance sale today. These stamps will be available in post offices starting Tuesday November 19th.

The U.S. Postal Service will produce 5 million booklets of 20 First-Class Forever® stamps. These limited-edition commemorative stamps will have 20 unique images from the eight movies about the British boy wizard and his friends, foes and fantastic creatures. Among the images will be Voldemort, Dumbledore and the Weasley brothers.

Susan McGowan, executive director, notes that Harry's adventure into magic begins when he receives a letter inviting him to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

In the books and films, Harry Potter's life changed with a letter, so we couldn't envision a more fitting tribute to commemorate the world created by J.K. Rowling and brought to life in the Warner Bros. films."

The postal service will release more information about the stamps over the coming week on the postal service Twitter feed @USPS with the hashtag #HPstamps.

If you are a Harry Potter fan, then you will want to add these to your collection!
