Reminder: Live Streaming of WWoHP events to begin tonight

This is just a reminder that tonight is the first night of Grand Opening events for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Tonight’s event is the Celebrity Preview, where Potter cast members Dan Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, James & Oliver Phelps, Bonnie Wright, Tom Felton, Matthew Lewis, Warwick Davis, Michael Gambon and others will be in attendance. Composer extraordinaire John Williams is scheduled to conduct a symphony orchestra, and there are also rumors that Emma Watson and J.K. Rowling are in Orlando for the events, although this information has not been yet confirmed.

Muggles everywhere can follow the events live at the following links:

UPDATE: It is being reported that guests in the park have been given light-up wands that will be used to “light up” Hogwarts Castle when Dan Radcliffe leads the crowd in casting a “lumos” spell.

Also, HPANA has tweeted that due to rain, the opening has been delayed by 30-minutes.

  1. Thanks so much for posting these links. 🙂

    I just watched the live feed, and it was quite a beautiful ceremony. I wonder why John Williams wasn’t asked to compose the score for Deathly Hallows. After all, his music for Harry Potter is as iconic as the music he’s written for the Star Wars saga. I loved the concert, the knight bus, the Anglia, the cast doing the Lumos! spell, and the fireworks. Fantastic!
