Universal Orlando Resort is presenting its 4th Annual A Celebration of Harry Potter, January 27-29, 2017. As reported by Leaky here, appearances at the event by Warwick Davis and Matthew Lewis, Potter’s own Professor Flitwick and Neville Longbottom, respectively, were announced late last year. According to the Universal Orlando Twitter account, Jason Issacs, known to fans as Lucius Malfoy, will also join his fellow Potter alumni on the program.

UPDATE: Universal announced earlier today that Tom Felton, Draco Malfoy from the Potter series, will be joining the other three actors at the event as well. According to Universal, Felton is the final addition to this year’s guest list. For DC Comics fans, Felton can currently be seen as mysterious CSI Julian Albert on the CW Series The Flash.
