Warner Bros. Discovery announced that the first-ever Wizarding World Festival will be coming to the U.S. in a magical three-day weekend celebrating all things Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, and the world of wizards, witches, and muggles.
The announcement was made today, September 1, 2022, during the annual “Back to Hogwarts” celebration.
“The Wizarding World is a global phenomenon with millions of fans that span generations. We are beyond excited to celebrate this magical community and bring everyone together for an epic fan festival – more than a traditional fan fest, a true experiential celebration – a must-see event,” said Peter van Roden, senior vice president of Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment. “From a beloved book series and iconic films to experiential touchpoints all across the globe, the Wizarding World franchise is truly special and we can’t wait to see fans of all ages come together for an event that celebrates it all.”
During the fan festival, which was created in partnership with Superfly X location-based entertainment and presented by Fever global live-entertainment platform, attendees can listen to panel discussions, watch film screenings, enjoy special guest appearances, be among the first to hear special announcements, and take part in cosplay and trivia competitions.
Autograph signings and photo ops within the festival’s “enchanting environment” will also feature at the event, and fans can purchase exclusive merchandise inspired by J.K. Rowling’s magical world.
“Superfly X has a long history in festivals and location-based entertainment, so we’re delighted to bring that expertise to the Wizarding World with a festival of this magnitude,” said Stacy Moscatelli, co-president and chief strategy officer at Superfly X. “The global Wizarding World community is one of the most dedicated, dynamic fanbases in the world so it made perfect sense to us to work with Warner Bros. to celebrate such an iconic franchise. The Wizarding World Festival is sure to conjure memories that will last a lifetime.”
At this time, dates, times, and location have not yet been announced. Updates will be presented soon.
