Ellen DeGeneres Show Makes Call for Knowledgeable Harry Potter Fans

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.

For full information about this call, and to enter, click here.

Many thanks, Tracy!

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!

Folks, it does not say, “precious child” it says, “precocious child.” A precocious child can certainly be a precious one, but the former is a bit more quantifiable.

Guys, it doesn’t say “precious”, it says “precocious” which is an entirely different word but doesn’t really alter the meaning of the sentence itself. Sorry, I’m a Grammar Nazi :P

Offtopic: Hermione is losing a cage match against Jaime Lannister (a Muggle) of A Song of Ice and Fire series. Please, go and vote for her. She needs the support of all Potter fans :)

Well, why doesn’t someone tweet Ellen to find out if they’re looking for kids of all ages or just kids younger than a specific age?

I agree that the call is as clear as mud. Would like more info. Also, I thought I might point out that they are inquiring about “precocious” children, not “precious” children.

I love Ellen’s show and can’t wait to see who gets picked! Hope it is one of our younger members here on MyLeaky, if only I wasn’t 32 :-)
