LeakyCon 2011 Wrap-Up: Harry Potter Fans Sing, Argue and Get All Dressed Up (VIDEO)

Filed under: ,

While the Harry Potter franchise may have come to an end with the release of 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2,' for the Potterheads who gathered in Orlando around the release weekend, the magic of Potter lives on.

Fans converged for LeakyCon, a celebration of all things wizarding, to celebrate the end of the movies and the ever-growing world of Potter fandom, and Moviefone was there to catch all the action. In between panels on Harry as an academic pursuit and discussions of fan interpretations of the text, attendees were treated to performances by a variety of viral Potter stars: Potter Puppet Pals performed to a packed crowd (the group has the 18th-most-viewed video on YouTube), wizard rock bands sang songs inspired by the books, and Team Starkid (creators of A Very Potter Musical) performed selections from their works for the first time in over a year.

The fans were also treated to an early screening of the final film and a sneak peek at Pottermore, J.K. Rowling's new site for all things Potter, that doesn't officially launch until October.

After the jump, watch our recap of LeakyCon and check out photos from the events.
