Of course, the domain registration could be just to avoid fans groups to do it and do unnoficial conventions with that name. However, there is the chance that Warner Bros. is preparing an official convention about the Wizarding World – or just an online edition, as they did with DC (called DC Fandome). The domain name was registered just a few days ago, on January 13th 2022.
We will have to wait until we have more information, but we will keep an eye on developments.
