London’s MCM Comic Con took place at the Excel this weekend, and the Fantastic Beasts panel was – as expected – hugely popular!

Google provided virtual reality googles (Google Daydream), which allowed visitors to the booth to explore the newest parts of the wizarding world in Fantastic Beasts:

Youtubers Liam Dryden and Carrie Hope Fletcher also joined the fun, and had a go at the interactive spell casting lessons:

We know from the Global Fan event held in Leicester Square that the booths are a lot of fun – so if you get the chance, definitely give it a try!

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment also joined the Wizarding World stand at Comic Con to show off the new Fantastic Beasts characters in Lego Dimensions, giving visitors more information on the new range of characters and a chance to see content from the game:

Looks like a lot of fun – did you visit the stand this weekend? Tell us how you found the augmented reality experience of 1920s New York!


The Leaky Cauldron is searching for intern writers! If you’d like to take a glimpse at what it’s like to share Potter news to a global audience, write about Cursed Childand Fantastic Beasts news and develop your writing and teamwork skills, please write a sample news article and a cover letter, and send it to [email protected]
