A Celebration of Harry Potter Event Features Exclusive Merchandise

A Celebration of Harry Potter kicks off the new year with a magical bang at Universal Orlando and Islands of Adventure in Florida. An annual event for Harry Potter fans and guests celebrates the phenomenal franchise created by author J.K. Rowling with panels, an expo, and cast appearances.

Universal Orlando released details of the limited merchandise that will be available exclusively throughout the weekend. Potter Talk has had the privilege of attending the celebration and I look forward to seeing what's available in person.

A special wand (not pictured below) has an exclusive design specific to this year's event. It will only be available in limited quantities this weekend for pre-order at the expo and promises to be a definite MUST-SEE.

Five-time consecutive Witch Weekly’s Most-Charming-Smile Award winner, Gilderoy Lockhart, will debut as a new Chocolate Frog Card. The boxes will be available at the expo, Sugarplums, and Honeydukes, and feature a special sticker indicating the new card for two weeks. And then it will become a random mystery card similar to the Dumbledore and head of Hogwarts houses.

Graphic designers Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, who designed props, pamphlets, and posters for the film franchise will be appearing this year. The creative design team has new art displays and merchandise, such as charms from the Lumos collection, t-shirts, and more.
