The virtual event “Back to Hogwarts”, scheduled for September 1, will bring together Harry Potter fans from around the world. The celebration will replace the annual fan meeting at King’s Cross station in London to commemorate the departure of the Hogwarts Express from Platform 9¾.
Created by the organization Wizarding World, the event will be open and totally free, with the objective of gathering fans from all places without agglomerations. The program runs from 6:30 am to 7:30 am, Brasília time, and will include the presence of actors such as James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley), Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) and Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley).
How to participate?

From August 29, users will have access to content such as a talk by wand choreographer Paul Harris; an immersive experience in the wizarding universe with Journeys to Hogwarts Soundscape; in addition to a presentation by CineConcerts, with orchestras from all over the world that will play the striking songs from the eight Harry Potter films.
