Beckham, who is the global ambassador of the Sands Group, which owns the Londoner Hotel at the Cotai Strip here in Macao, was referring to the upcoming Harry Potter: The Exhibition, which is described as a groundbreaking touring exhibition “that celebrates the iconic moments, characters, settings, and beasts as seen in the Harry Potter film series and the Wizarding World.
The attraction will feature “best-in-class immersive design and innovative technology,” as well as “original props, costumes, and powerful storytelling.”
According to The Londoner website, viewers of the exhibition will get to choose their “favorite Hogwarts house, wand, and Patronus to begin a personalised journey through this immersive experience: plop down in Hagrid's giant chair, squeeze into the Cupboard Under The Stairs, and practice your Quidditch skills by throwing a Quaffle, all while learning behind-the-scenes filmmaking details.”
There are Wizarding World of Harry Potter attractions in Universal Studios theme parks in Orlando, Florida; Los Angeles, California; and Osaka, Japan; and Beijing, China. This attraction is the first to open in Macao.
The attraction is expected to premiere at The Londoner Macao in December 2023. Fans can already sign up to be on the wait list to be among the first to gain early access tickets to the attraction.
