March 09, 2010, 10:45 PM
As a follow up to our post about the Ellen DeGeneres Show taping from Universal Studios Orlando and broadcasting a 'sneak peek' at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park, the talk show's website has put out a call for those knowledgeable in everything Harry Potter. In the "Be Part of the Show' section, the following call has been issued:
Do you have a precocious child who knows everything there is to know about Harry Potter books and movies? Is talking about Harry Potter his or her favorite subject? If so, we want to hear about them! Click here to tell us about your little wizard.
A following prompt asks for a 1500 character (maximum) story about the young Harry Potter fan, as well as a photo of the entrant. If the fan is under the age of 18, the form must be filled out by a parent or guardian on the young fan's behalf.

Many thanks, Tracy!
I don’t know how many of us can be considered “precious” but we’ll ALL precocious!
I have five grandkids — I could enter one of them. I’ll just coach them.

I find it annoying they only consider small children into HP. Since the books first came out over a decade ago there are many fans who are well! over the age of 18. Im only 23 and got into them late, but still it bothers me that they only want children when people are age care more then much much younger children.
Too bad it is just for children because most of the fandom is adults. I would love to do this even though I am 51 years old and not a child. All my co-workers know I am and let me know about HP happenings. They even try to find me gifts of HP that I do not have.
I do agree that the instructions were a little vague and should have been clearer to what would be expected. Hopefully they will clear it up soon. I can’t wait for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter to open. I am taking my granddaughter with me and she will be thrilled. Couldn’t enter her for the Ellen show thing since she is only 3 years old but she sure does love to watch the movies!
