Actor Warwick Davis appeared at tonight’s private Wizarding World of Harry Potter opening ceremony, conducting the Hogwarts Frog Choir, just as his character Professor Filtwick did in the Harry Potter films.

While the event was not open to the public, it was made available for live online viewing, so here is that video of Davis and the Frog Choir:



Also in attendance were film stars Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasely), Michael Gambon (Dumbledore), Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasely), James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley), and Warwick Davis (Filius Flitwick).

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will hold its public grand opening at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, June 18, after which muggles everywhere will be finally able to drink Butterbeer, shop in Hogsmeade Village, and take a few wild rides around the new Islands of Adventure theme park area. But if you want to be there for the opening, arrive early, as Universal Orlando is expecting a huge crowd, opening its parking garage at 5:30 a.m.

If you can’t make it to Orlando any time soon, you can virtually visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter online via our videos, photos, articles ,and reviews.

    Howdy Pards,

    Warwick Davis is an absolute delight! He was obviously having a great deal of fun on this very special evening! I wonder how many in the audience that night actually realized the huge role he has played in the Potter stories…especially the ones coming up in the final films? I wonder how many know he was in Star Wars…and really shined in WILLOW? He has a new book out in England…soon to arrive in the States and it is an absolute delight to hear him telling stories from his many films. He was clearly enjoying this very special night at Hogwarts… pure magic! And we will always remember “swish and flick…Wingardium Leviosa!”
    Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.
