7 best selling books. Soon to be 8 of the best grossing films of all time. And now a theme park entirely dedicated to the world you created that will be around for at least 10 years for more generations to enjoy. Yeah, life should seem pretty surreal by now. That look in the second pic she is giving says it all.

I am speechless. And I think she is also, looking at her work ‘coming to life’ as you guys put it. This is incredible. Thanks again, Jo, from the bottom of our hearts.

You’re write about that! Didn’t she say in J.K. Rowling: A Year in the Life that shoes were her weakness? God, I love this woman.

That must be so surreal for her. To see the world she created in reality. With the film sets, although they would be cool, you would be able to tell they were film sets. This is way more real.
