Business Wire reports that Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was screened for the crew of the International Space Station, thanks to a special arrangement with Warner Brothers.

“International Space Station Commander William McArthur got a very special viewing of ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ this week. McArthur, a NASA Astronaut, is working and living on the station as part of a six-month mission. As part of NASA’s regular assistance to long-duration spaceflight crewmembers, NASA contacted the makers of the Harry Potter movies, Warner Bros. Pictures, in the hopes that they might work some magic and help the Commander see the latest in the Harry Potter film series while still in space. Together, Warner Bros. Pictures and NASA worked to stream the film in space for McArthur.”

Thanks, Gretchen!
