INTRODUCING… MuggleNet Live! 2015: Expo Patronum
At the beginning of this month, MuggleNet celebrated its 15th anniversary – an astonishing achievement for any website, never mind one dedicated to a book series! Over the last decade and a half, we have constantly broken new ground, being among the first Harry Potter fan sites to interview J.K. Rowling, creating the highly popular Potter podcast, MuggleCast, proudly displayed all kinds of fan submissions, and seeking to bring the latest and best fandom news.
But we have also come to realize over the past year that something has been missing from these experiences. So we’ve been doing a little thinking. We’ve looked into our Pensieve, polished our Remembralls, and spun our Time-Turners thinking what we could contribute to the fandom that has never been done before, and – at last – we think we’ve found the perfect solution!
Just as Harry’s story has evolved, so, too, has our own. We’ve seen how the fandom has changed over the past few years and how we are all ready for the next great chapter with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them being made into “at least” three films. Hoping to bridge the gap between the eras of the wizarding world, we realized that the answer to what was missing was a simple one, an event that would brings fans together from all over to celebrate the Hogwarts saga’s past, present, and future.
Taking place in the homeland of Potter on Saturday, April 18, 2015, Expo Patronum will be hosted in the heart of London at the ExCeL Centre London Suite. Expo Patronum is the upcoming Potter-centric convention that will offer a unique opportunity to see and hear from the talent and creatives behind the Harry Potter books, film series, and the surrounding materials.
MuggleNet Live! is the place where fans from around the globe can experience their favorite Harry Potter alumni through interaction and discussion with a focused lens on the future, uniting cast and crew in a unique and exciting way.
More details about the event, including special guests, programming, and ticket information, will be rolled out in the upcoming months. However, each day over the next week, we will be revealing some of our initial announcements over at our all-new MuggleNet Live! 2015: Expo Patronum website. Also be sure to join the Expo Patronum Facebook event, and follow @MuggleNetLive on Twitter for the latest updates!
We are SO EXCITED to be bringing this amazing event to Potter fans! It’s been a long time coming, and we cannot wait to share in the magic of the wizarding world with all of you.
So – will you be joining us for this magical one-day event?
