This weekend, Jan 27-29, muggles from around the world will come together to celebrate at the 4th annual A Celebration of Harry Potter, hosted by Universal Orlando and Warner Bros.
Author J.K. Rowling has inspired many with her tales of the Wizarding World, and this three-day event will give fans the opportunity to immerse themselves in that world at Universal Orlando.
This weekend, A Celebration of Harry Potter is being held at the Universal Orlando Resort, featuring celebrities from the films, and panels for fans to enjoy.
Even better, Universal has announced they will be live streaming three of the panels for Harry Potter fans who can’t be in attendance.
Harry Potter fans from around the world will convene at Universal Orlando for A Celebration of Harry Potter January 24-26, 2014.
Headlining the event will be actors James Phelps and Oliver Phelps who played Fred and George Weasley, and actress Evanna Lynch who played Lovegood in the eight Harry Potter films.
Others from the Potter universe scheduled to appear are artist Kazu Kibuishi, who re-imagined the HP book covers, and HP film graphic artists Eduardo Lima and Miraphora Mina of MinaLima.
There will be a variety of panels at the event, ranging from guest Q&A’s to a Dueling Demonstration & Wand Combat Masterclass with Paul Harris, who choreographed the battle scene in “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.”
There will also be a preview of Diagon Alley, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter expansion set to open at Universal Studios Florida in Spring 2014.
The VIP vacation package is sold out, but the three-day celebration is still open to any parkgoer with admission, on a first come, first serve basis. There is a Florida resident 3-day park to park ticket on sale, which offers savings over the price at the gate.
