It is once again the time of year for Universal Orlando to celebrate the Harry Potter franchise a celebration like no other. From January 29-31, 2016, Diagon Alley at Universal Studios and Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure will be filled with excitement for Harry Potter fans from all over. Some things that fans have to look forward to are as follows:

  • Film Talent Q&A-this will feature actors from the films. This years line-up will include Rupert Grint, who portrays Ron Weasley, Bonnie Wright, who portrays Ginny Weasley, Katie Leung, who portrays Cho Chang, Matthew Lewis, who portrays Neville Longbottom and Evanna Lynch, who portrays Luna Lovegood.
  • Harry Potter Exhibition-this touring attraction highlights the global impact of Harry Potter.
  • Showcase with Propmaker: One of the film's propmakers, Pierre Bohanna, explains what goes into making props, such as wands for the film.
  • Sorting Hat-you can be sorted into your Hogwarts house by the Sorting Hat. Will you be sorted into Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff?

For the younger witches and wizards, there will also be a Harry Potter Film trivia area, as well as choreographers teaching how to dance like a Beauxbaton, like in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
