Great photos, though between all the pale English skin and the long sleeves, I do hope they were all wearing sunblock and staying hydrated!

If Emma had not been filming at this point in time it would have been great to see the trio together. Frankly I thought Bonnie looked like she was terrified beyond belief and afraid of being trampled, which considering the amount of people there could have been a distinct possibility. Poor Tom looked like the kids were having a problem seperating the character of Draco with the actor. The twins are by far my favorite characters and they were just super!!!! Can not wait for Sept as I suspect that there will not be the thousands of people as there were today.

what an opportunity for those kids who got to go in first and with the cast, I love dan he’s such a genuinely happy, and nice guy you don’t see to many of those specially in the acting world. He looked as excited as anyone of those kids to be part of that opening day. It was also nice to see that it was opened by the actual cast not the execs of universal and or warner bros.
