A Celebration of Harry Potter, held at Universal Orlando Resort in January, featured several appearances by members of the movie cast. Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), James Phelps (Fred Weasley), Oliver Phelps (George Weasley), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), and Devon Murray (Seamus Finnigan) all took the stage to chat with audience members and answer questions submitted via Twitter. Check out the video accompanying this article to see their afternoon session, and go to this article to see their morning session.

The event was packed with a wide variety of activities for Potter fans, from the celebrity appearances to wand combat classes to an expo with participants like Warner Brothers, Scholastic, and Pottermore.com. If you'd like to see a quick overview, jump to this article.

While the celebration is over, there's still a lot more coming up for Potter fans at Universal Orlando Resort later this year. The long-awaiting Diagon Alley session, which took over the old Jaws and Amity area, opens this summer. It will feature plenty of shops and eateries, but perhaps the two most eagerly awaited elements are the new Gringotts ride and the Hogwarts Express, which will run between Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure. The latter park is home to the original Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which is modeled on Hogsmeade and features Hogwarts Castle.
