Wesley Twins Spotted at Comic-Con in Abu Dhabi 2024

Harry Potter’s Weasley twins will join a host of stars at the convention on February 10 and 11


Excitement is building among Harry Potter fans in Abu Dhabi as the mischievous Weasley twins, James and Oliver Phelps, prepare to captivate attendees at the next Comic-Con in February. The dynamic team, known for their iconic portrayals of Fred and George Weasley, is taking a little break from the wizarding world’s entrepreneurial pursuits at the Weasley Wizard Wheezes joke shop. Prepare for a lovely trip down memory lane as they share stories about nostalgia, Quidditch, and, of course, their famed mischievousness.

The twins are entering the Muggle World

Aside from their wizarding popularity, James and Oliver Phelps have smoothly migrated into the muggle world, leaving an indelible impact on numerous short films and providing their voices to beloved characters in video games. The twins, known for their off-screen eccentricities, once staged pranks by swapping personas and learning one other’s lines, leaving directors and fellow cast members in joyful perplexity.

Do we really get to see them in person?


Fans will have the opportunity to meet the Phelps brothers live at Comic-Con on Saturday, February 10 and Sunday, February 11. Prepare to immerse yourself in the wonderful world of Harry Potter, as the twins will likely offer behind-the-scenes anecdotes and perhaps even some magical tricks.

An All-Star Lineup:
The magic does not end with the Weasley twins! Comic-Con will feature a star-studded ensemble of characters, including the Straw Hat Pirates’ Captain, Monkey D. Luffy, who will be voiced by the great Frank Welker, best known for his performances in Garfield, Transformers’ Megatron, and Scooby Doo.
