I thought Daniel and Rupert were too busy to attend. The newspaper in HK wrote so.

I couldn’t go there anyway. I’m getting my diploma for finishing secondary school on the 18th. I’m going there next year.
But I’m going to the world premiere in London(when I know the date) later this year.

Wow — that’s crazy. I hope the organizers do a good job so that the fans will have a chance for autographs. So exciting!

Very cool that some of the cast members will be there for the opening! Makes it even more authentic! (It will probably be pretty cool for them as well). All you folks going for the opening, soak it all in for the rest of us til we can make it down too!

An employee told me last September that Jo would also be there! But that was last September and who knows if that was an internal employee rumour, or true but maybe plans have changed, or if she IS planning on being there! I’m going to be there just in case, plus I LOVE Rupert! :D

I’m also worried about how many people are expected, in possible tramplings and also how channel 13 mentioned that maybe not everyone will be able to get into the Hogsmeade area simply because of the crowds!

Does anyone know how long they’ll be there for?! I’m going to the park on the 20th…. It would be so, SO amazing to see any of them! Especially the Phelps twins, because it seems like whenever they go somewhere, I’m there a couple days later and they’ve already left :[
