John Williams and a full orchestra at the grand opening of the theme park sounds truly amazing! I hope Harry Potter himself, Dan Radcliffe, makes an appearance as well. That would make the day perfect!

John Williams is a great composer and deserves to be there. His music is perfect for HP and helps create the very essence of the HP world. He’s a very special man.

Williams can go to the Wizarding World opening but not compose DH 1 and 2. One question, why?

I love John Williams!!!But I think for the HP’s, Nicholas Hooper was a bit better.

Guess That Book

When Draco Malfoy imitated Ron dropping the Quaffle (which he did whenever they were within sight of each other), Ron's ears glowed red and his hands shook so badly that he was likely to drop whatever he was holding at the time too.
