The first two special guests were revealed today for what is going to be an extra magical LeakyCon in 2019. As we shared last year, LeakyCon, one of the largest Harry Potter-themed events in the world will celebrate its tenth anniversary with two celebrations of The Boy Who Lived, including double the panels, performances, programs, cosplay and the LeakyCon Marketplace!

The first event, which has been deemed Leakycon 9 ¾ will return to Dallas, TX August 9-11. The first special guest to be added to the 9 ¾ lineup is the brilliant Wizarding World wand choreographer Paul Harris. If you’ve seen him in action at Universal Orlando’s A Celebration of Harry Potter, you know how spellbinding his work is.

To mark the tenth anniversary of this Grawp-sized convention, Leakycon10 will once again take place in Boston where it all began in 2009. And to get it all started, Chris Rankin, who played middle Weasley brother and Gryffindor Prefect Percy was revealed as the first guest to appear at the celebration.

With double Leakycons this year, there will be double the excitement, so stay tuned for all the coming announcements!
