Cast members chat at Universal Orlando Harry Potter Celebration morning session

See also

Several cast members from the Harry Potter movies were on hand for A Celebration of Harry Potter, which was recently held at Universal Orlando Resort. They kicked off the event with a question and answer session on the main Music Plaza stage in front of the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster, thrilling jam-packed fans despite the cold evening air.

The cast was back the very next day for more intimate Q & A sessions next door at Islands of Adventure. There were multiple sessions to give as many people as possible a chance to see Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), James Phelps (Fred Weasley), Oliver Phelps (George Weasley), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), and Devon Murray (Seamus Finnigan) as they fielded questions from the audience and Twitter. Click the video accompanying this article to see the Saturday, January 25, morning session.

The cast members returned in the afternoon for another session. Jump to this article if you'd like to see that one, too.

In addition to cast appearances, the event included other talks, including a wand combat class with Paul Harris which you can see in this article. If you'd like a quick overview of the entire event, jump to this article.

If you missed the event, there's still plenty of Harry Potter coming to Universal Studios Florida later this year. Diagon Alley opens in the park this summer, with the Hogwarts Express, Gringotts Wizarding Bank, and many other iconic places from the film.
