The 2014 Celebration of Harry Potter

Some big name wizards will be flying to Orlando this January for the annual Celebration of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando. 

Universal announced today that Evanna Lynch, Matthew Lewis, Bonnie Wright, Katie Leung and Rupert Grint (aka Luna Lovegood, Neville Longbottom, Ginny Weasley, Cho Chang and Ron Weasley) will be headlining the party at the third annual Celebration of Harry Potter, which runs from Jan. 29-31. 

The Harry Potter alumni will partake in panel discussions, and a Q&A session. Guest can also check out demonstrations from notable behind-the-scenes names like:
  • Pierre Brohanna, the Head Prop Maker for the film franchise.
  • Eduardo Lima and Miraphora Mina of MinaLima, who established the visual graphic style of the films. 
  • Paul Harris, wand combat choreographer for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
  • The creators and talent that have made Harry Potter: The Exhibition a global touring phenomenon. 
According to Universal's official blog, guests who attend this wizarding weekend will also be able to participate in an interactive mini-tour experience from Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, have a try at the Sorting Hat and interact with J.K Rowling’s Pottermore. 

Access to A Celebration of Harry Potter is included with regular theme park admission. However, guests who purchase the event vacation package will enjoy "certain special benefits and reserved sections for the panels and demonstrations," says Universal.
