Miral and Warner Bros. Discovery to bring Harry Potter themed land to Yas Island

The firm said that Global Themed Entertainment will invite fans to step inside iconic locations from the wizarding world, seen in an all-new way

Abu Dhabi based Miral has partnered with Warner Bros. Discovery to bring a new attraction to Yas Island, within Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi. The planned Harry Potter themed land is said to be the result of the joint creative vision of Miral and Warner Bros.

The addition of a Harry Potter themed land at Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi is said to expand upon a successful line-up of themed lands and experiences including Bedrock, Dynamite Gulch, Cartoon Junction, Gotham City and Metropolis, that have brought fun and unforgettable memories to Warner Bros. fans, a statement from Miral said.

Although a groundbreaking date has yet to be announced, Miral said the new launch further supports Miral’s vision to position the park as a top global destination, and a great addition to the island’s unique portfolio of attractions and experiences, while contributing to Abu Dhabi’s tourism ecosystem and growth.

In December 2021, Miral officially opened Yas Bay Waterfront and, in March 2022, Miral and DCT Abu Dhabi confirmed that work on the Abu Dhabi Natural History Museum will be complete by 2025.

“We are very proud of our continuous partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery and excited to be bringing this spell binding first to the Middle East and the world in the future. This is yet another testament to our commitment to continue to position Yas Island as a top global destination for entertainment and leisure, and a great addition to Abu Dhabi’s tourism offerings, contributing to the growth and economic diversification of the Emirate,” said HE Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Chairman of Miral.

The Harry Potter themed land will be significant in scale and join the existing six Immersive Lands in the award-winning theme park, bringing Harry Potter to fans like never before, Miral noted.

Pam Lifford, President, Global Brands and Experiences from Warner Bros. Discovery concluded, “The Wizarding World offers something for fans of every age to enjoy. The original Harry Potter stories and the blockbuster film series continue to captivate and inspire hundreds of millions of fans around the world, and our Global Themed Entertainment team together with our world-class partner Miral, will expand our successful Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi to bring this magical experience to life. Together with our lands at Universal Parks, this will add a wholly new and spectacular destination for fans to immerse themselves in.”

In September 2022, Miral announced that SeaWorld Abu Dhabi will open in 2023.
