The 2017 Celebration of Harry Potter may be over, but we still have some tidbits to share over the next few days! We’ve just posted a bunch of photos from the weekend over on our Facebook page, so head over and check them out!
Disney has released the final trailer for Emma Watson’s Beauty and the Beast! The film will be released on March 17 and also stars Emma Thompson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Ian McKellen, Ewan Mcgregor, Stanley Tucci and Kevin Kline.
Warner Bros. released a deleted scene from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them at this weekend’s Celebration of Harry Potter! The scene features Queenie and Tina singing the Ilvermorny song and contains a famous quote from the trailer that fans were disappointed to not see in the finished film.
This clip is featured on the blu-ray and DVD release of the film. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be available on Digital HD 3/7 and Blu-ray™ 3/28.
Pottermore has announced this morning that Eddie Redmayne has recorded an audio book for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as Newt Scamander. The digital audio book is available for pre-order from Audible UK, Audible US and Audible Australia now and will be released on 14 March 2017.
This is NOT a reading of the screenplay, it’s for the original textbook from 2001. This new version has updated beasts from J.K. Rowling as well as a foreword from Newt.
The Universal Orlando blog has unveiled the exclusive souvenirs fans can purchase at this weekend’s Celebration of Harry Potter. Visit the Harry Potter Expo in Soundstages 33 and 21 from Jan. 27-29 to see all of the new souvenirs and exhibitors for this year’s event.
You can still purchase park to park tickets for the event, but all packages are now sold out. Get your tickets now and join us at the fourth annual A Celebration of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort! If you can’t make it we’ll be reporting from the event all weekend!
This year, we’re excited to introduce a commemorative A Celebration of Harry Potter 2017 wand. This exclusive design is specific to this year’s event and will only be available, in limited quantities, for pre-order at the expo – it will definitely be a MUST-SEE since this will be the only time this new wand will be available.
Also debuting at this year’s event will be a new Chocolate Frog Card featuring five-time consecutive Witch Weekly’s Most-Charming-Smile Award winner, Gilderoy Lockhart. A MUST-HAVE for Chocolate Frog Card collectors, the boxes will have a specific sticker indicating which contain the new card for two weeks. After those two weeks, they’ll become random like the other cards. You’ll be able to find the new Chocolate Frog Cards in the expo and both Sugarplum’s and Honeydukes.
For the more artistically-minded, make sure you check out the new art and displays from the graphic designers Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, the creative design for this year’s event, new charms from the Lumos collection and more.
