Universal and Warner Bros. announced today that Bonnie Wright, known for playing Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter films, will return to the Wizarding World's fifth "A Celebration of Harry Potter" event on January 26-28, 2018.

Wright will join fellow Potter stars James and Oliver Phelps, who played Weasley twins Fred and George, along with first-time "Celebration" attendee, Stanislav Yanevski, who played Victor Krum. The actors will participate in festivities throughout the weekend.

For the entirety of the weekend, guests can attend Harry Potter expo events geared around graphic and prop designers Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, along with costume designer Jany Temime and special effects supervisor John Richardson.

The event includes Q&A sessions with Harry Potter alumni, along with panels and activities. Most of the activities are included in the theme park admission price, an annual park pass, or with one of Universal's hotel packages, which will offer workshops and a private event reception in the Wizarding World portion of the park.
