This weekend, you can be a wizard instead of a knight!

Several cast members from the Harry Potter movie franchise will be in Universal Orlando Resort this weekend for the third annual ‘A Celebration of Harry Potter’ event from Friday, Jan. 29 to Sunday, Jan. 31.

Cast members, including Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), and Katie Leung (Cho Chang), will participate in a Q&A panel and discuss their experiences working on one of the most successful film franchises in history.

There will also be props, such as the Hogwart’s Sorting Hat, with which guests, or potential Hogwarts students, will find out which house they belong to.

Other props include work from graphic designers Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, who both worked 10 years in the Harry Potter franchise. Some of the iconic graphic props they created will be on display, such as The Marauder’s Map, Daily Prophets newspaper and Hogwarts school's textbooks.

“Since working on the films, they created the Minalima Store, which sells authentic reproductions of the film's artwork with limited edition art prints and stationery. They are currently in production on the new feature film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," according to Universal Orlando’s site.

Admission to the event is included with any park-to-park admission ticket or any annual pass holder. Tickets range in price.
