Harry Potter To Get Immersive Exhibition In 2022

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter might be coming to a city near you next year.


When you want to immerse yourself in your favorite fantasy world, you usually have to go find a theme park. This time though, Harry Potter might be coming to visit you. Warner Bros. and Imagine Exhibitions announced today Harry Potter: The Exhibition, which will launch in 2022 and tour around the world.

The exhibition will encompass not just Harry Potter, but the Fantastic Beasts series as well, and will "celebrate the most iconic moments of the films and stories of Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, and the expanding Wizarding World," according to the official statement from Imagine. The company promises an "immersive, behind-the-scenes exhibition experience" that will show off environments themed after the characters and beasts from the films. Exhibition goers will engage will be able to engage with environments and installations filled with props and costumes from the entire Wizarding World franchise, Imagine says.

From the description it sounds like the show will be something like a midpoint between a museum exhibit and a proper theme park, not as immersive as the Wizarding World of Harry Potter parks at Universal Studios in California, Florida, and Japan, but much more than a line of glass cases with wands in them.

Imagine and Warner Bros. plan to launch the exhibition in 2022, and it will begin touring around the world, covering North America, Latin America, the Asia-Pacific Region, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The exhibition will scale depending on its location, with a footprint between 10,000 and 20,000 square feet. Imagine has previously provided exhibitions for Titanic, Hunger Games, Angry Birds, Jurassic World, and Downton Abbey.
