Christmas it seems is just around the corner. For all you Muggles out there the festive season has come early.
”This holiday season, we are excited to introduce new Christmas themed experiences that further extend J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World into the lifestyle of our fans and consumers,” said Peter van Roden, Senior Vice President, Global Themed Entertainment, Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
A new Harry Potter immersive shopping experience is being touted by Warner Bros and we couldn’t be happier. If we knew the destination we would already be queuing in an orderly British manner.
Christmas in the Wizarding World is coming to a shopping destination near you. It will be an interactive, immersive retail experience designed to evoke the setting and atmosphere of a wintry Hogsmeade village. There will be an Ollivanders wand shop where guests can select their wand. You will be able to take the perfect Christmas card picture with a photo featuring a variety of background options from the Harry Potter films. In addition you will be able to purchase everything an aspiring witch and wizard needs including robes and sweaters.
“GES (Global Experience Specialists) is delighted to be a part of creating a new way for fans to experience the world of Harry Potter, this time in a holiday setting,” said Eddie Newquist, chief creative officer of GES. “This one-of-a-kind experience is sure to be a hit with families and friends who are looking for a magical experience this holiday season.”
Roll on the holiday season.
