The Wizarding World could be coming to a shopping venue near you, as Warner Bros have partnered with Global Experience Specialists to bring an all-new holiday experience for fans: Christmas in the Wizarding World!

The producers of Harry Potter: The Exhibition – Warner Bros Consumer Products (WBCP) and Global Experience Specialists (GES) – are behind these pop-up attractions, which will aim to recreate the atmosphere of shopping at a wintry Hogsmeade at ‘selected [major] shopping venues’.

The best part? We only have to wait until fall 2017!

Crafted settings and unique experiences, as well as Ollivanders, unique photo opportunities, animated shop windows and authentic Harry Potter merchandise will be on offer, as Warner Bros told us in a recent press release:

”This holiday season, we are excited to introduce new Christmas themed experiences that further extend J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World into the lifestyle of our fans and consumers,” said Peter van Roden, Senior Vice President, Global Themed Entertainment, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “Christmas in the Wizarding World will be an all-new touchpoint that celebrates this very special time of the year.”

Full details of these key features below:

  • Ollivanders™, where guests will be able to experience a holiday surprise with the help of the Wandkeeper, amid soaring shelves of hundreds of precariously stacked wands boxes.
  • A memorable photo opportunity, featuring a number of background options from the Harry Potter films, where guests can purchase a keepsake of their Christmas in the Wizarding World
  • Throughout the attraction, animated windows will bring the iconic shops from the films to life, delighting visitors and fans alike.
  • A wide selection of authentic Harry Potter merchandise, from house sweaters and robes to fan-favorite confections and plush owls, as well as jewelry and collectibles will be featured in familiar storefronts seen in the films.

We’ll let you know as soon as word is out about where exactly these special experiences will be appearing – let’s home as many of us as possible get to experience Christmas in the Wizarding World at the convenience of our local retail outlet (rather than travelling to one of the theme parks)!
