A new touring exhibition should please Harry Potter fans when it makes its debut in 2022. Harry Potter: The Exhibition is an immersive Wizarding World experience that is now under development by Imagine Exhibitions in partnership with Warner Bros.
The new exhibition will celebrate the most iconic moments of the films and stories of Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts and the expanded Wizarding World, through an immersive, behind-the-scenes experience. It is due to tour in multiple regions around the world, including North America, Latin America, Asia-Pacific Region and Europe, Middle-East and Africa.
It will have a footprint between 929 and 1858 square meters, and will present specially-crafted environments that honor the beloved characters, settings and beasts seen in the films, while exploring the filmmaking magic that brought them to life. Visitors will get to see authentic props and original costumes from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films as they engage with its environments and installations.
The exhibition will connect all aspects of the magical realm of the Wizarding World. This includes seven novels that have sold over 500 million copies worldwide, eight Harry Potter movies, the Tony and Olivier award-winning stage show, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and the first two of the five-part Fantastic Beasts film series. The initial venue will be announced in the coming months.
"We are honored to be entrusted with the iconic Harry Potter brand and excited to develop and share an exhibition experience that celebrates the magic of the Wizarding World," says Tom Zaller, CEO of Imagine Exhibitions. "We look forward to working with world-class partners, promoters, and sponsors to bring an all-new Harry Potter: The Exhibition to fans around the globe."
