Panini to launch Wizarding World stickers and trading cards

Warner Bros. Consumer Product EMEA has teamed with Panini to launch a new collection of stickers and trading cards inspired by J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.

The duo will launch a number of collections, the first of which is a 32 page album featuring popular characters and beasts from across all of the movies within J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding universe.

As well as featuring iconic scenes from the Harry Potter film franchise, the card collection will include key scenes from Warner Bros. Pictures’ upcoming movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first Harry Potter spin-off scheduled to hit cinemas on November 18th.

A total of 240 stickers, including 96 specials, will be available for fans to collect and will retail in packs of five stickers.

Julian Moon, senior vice president EMEA, Warner Bros. Consumer Products, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Panini on J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World sticker and trading card collection.

"The Panini team has been involved with the Harry Potter franchise since the very beginning, having produced the sticker album collections since the first film. They have a deep understanding of the power of the brand and we’re delighted to be working with them again on this deeply engaging and immersive product, now including Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”

Peter Warsop, Panini’s group licensing director, added: “We couldn’t be more excited about our movie and sticker album tie-in.

“When you consider the enormous success of our previous Panini launches for the Harry Potter films, along with the anticipation and excitement building around Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, we believe fans worldwide will be going crazy to start their new collections.

"The completed albums will form a memorable treasure of all that is best about the Wizarding World adventures.”
