In case you missed our reminder post yesterday, tonight will see the J.K. Rowling: A Year in the Life documentary broadcast on ABC at 8:00pm (Eastern). As noted by the NY Daily News, this airing of the 2007 documentary " which was filmed by James Runcie, inserts voiceovers by Elizabeth Vargas doesn't update the narrative, however, or tie it to the new movie, so it often plays more like a slice of recent pop-culture history than a news special."

OMG I think I have just stuck Harry Potter gold!!! Today me and some friends went to London and we stumbled upon a place along the Southbank called the Movieum!! It has got to be the coolest place that I have been to London!! Not only has it got like millions of really coool stuff from loads of different films- I got to play with light sabers  but there are HARRY POTTER STUFF!!!! Like OMG I have officially seen THE nimbus 2000 and Ron’s beautifully battered wand (i nearly squealed when I saw this!!!) There were Harry, Ron and Hermione costumes from all different films – Ron’s little knitted R jumper was there, which I just wanted to break the glass and wear! And the tri-Wizard cup was bestowed upon us too, shame we couldn’t lift it up as if we were Harry for real! It really made me and my friends feel as though we were behind the scenes in the wizarding world!
I toddled off a happy girlie, fulfilled in my magical Potter moment. Next place to find is Diagon alley – any suggestions to where I can find that?
So how comes no one has ever posted something about this aaaaaamazing place before?
