A trio of animated secret agent guinea pigs broke the spell of the new Harry Potter movie to take the top spot at the North American box office, according to studio estimates issued on Sunday.

“G-Force,” a Disney live action and computer-generated animation family feature, earned $32.1 million in the United States and Canada, pushing “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” down to second place with $30 million in its second weekend.
