Yesterday, the Wizarding World official site, the definitive home of all things Harry Potter, announced the future of an ambitious venture: the biggest wizarding shop the world has ever known. The building will be housed in New York, next to the world famous flatiron building. The official announcement states that the store will be "a brand-new and unique experience dedicated to Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts." Sarah Roots, the Senior VP for Worldwide Tours and Retail at Warner Bros., had this to say about the new venture:

"This will be the largest dedicated Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts store in the world and will become a must-visit fan destination where Wizarding World enthusiasts can engage with interactive experiences and numerous photo opportunities as they step into the magic."

The announcement promises that the store will have rare collectibles, personalized robes, signed art, and themed exclusives, so die hard fans are squealing over what could become a real-life Diagon Alley. The plan for the building is also expected to include full accessibility for wheelchair users, which is a great big plus for the community, which has historically been concerned about issues of accessibility. No further details are available at this time, but the Wizarding World site advises us to look for more information coming later this year.
