Witches and wizards will get to meet the famous Weasley twins and the Bulgarian quidditch team's seeker this year at A Celebration of Harry Potter.

The annual Harry Potter fest -- now in its fifth year at Universal Orlando -- announced James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley) and Stanislav Yanevski (Viktor Krum) as part of the first round of celebrity guests.

More guests will be announced at a later date.

The Phelps twins were fan-favorites at previous Celebrations, but this year is Yanevski's first event at the Orlando theme park.

James and Oliver Phelps played the two mischievous twins in the large Weasley family. They were both brilliant pranksters and went on to co-found Weasley's Wizard Wheezes, a joke shop. Yanevski played the gruff Bulgarian seeker who first appeared in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire during the Triwizard Tournament. He was the Durmstrang Institute's champion.

During the three-day celebration, guests get to attend Q&A sessions with celebrities from the films, experience activities and displays from J.K. Rowling's wizarding world and just celebrate all there is to love about the Harry Potter fandom.

Last year, Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick and Griphook) and Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) attended the festivities.

A Celebration of Harry Potter returns Jan. 26-28. The event is included with park admission, but special vacation packages include VIP access to panels, the Harry Potter Expo and new workshops.
