June 20, 2010, 12:11 AM
Universal Orlando has released a short video featuring actors from the Harry Potter films along with author J. K. Rowling touring the many different aspects of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park. Available to view via this link or below, the video features actors Dan Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Tom Felton, and Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling making their way around such places as Hogsmeade, Zonkos, the Hog's Head Pub, and more.
The Harry Potter author is shown being taken around the streets of Hogsmeade, and looking to shop windows along avenue. In regards to the park, J. K. Rowling notes that, "I'm used to walking onto film sets, where at a certain point everything dissolves into scaffolding and lighting, so, I suppose, the completeness of the vision is most breathtaking."
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resorts is open now.
Congratulations to Jo for the vision she had of all this, and for the 7 books too! I hope she had a wonderful time! Itsure seems like Dan, Rupert, Tom and Matthew did!
Omg that was amazing. I want to go there so bad, better start saving the pennys! Love JK as much as ever :D Must be incredible to see the world you created bought to life infront of you, crazy.
Did Dan say “This is really f___ing good” after he drank some b-beer, or am I imaging things?
Awesome intro to the world. Must have been SUPER exciting for everyone: the avid fans (especially the kids, because I believe children have a magical Moody eye installed in their souls…only the lucky ones hang onto it), and Jo, too. She really is stunning! I love hearing her speak. Melissa is right, we don’t hear from her as often as we’d like. Love her!
I feel an overwhelming sense of “the next chapter”…perhaps this is the beginning of the fandom truly broadening, and the depth of the canon revealing ALL of itself?! Hello Scottish Book, WWoHP, the novels, and films, oh, and the fandom…what else can we ask for?
just went on friday. and luckily i knew someone who had an executive pass so we skipped all the ridiculous lines. i really wouldn’t have gone unless i got in free and could skip the lines. it was insane. i’m definitely waiting at least til winter to go again. hopefully it will have died down enough by then. anyway, the new ride that’s inside the hogwarts castle is pretty awesome
I love it, I love it, I love it, I love it!! That’s all I have to say!
OMG! its so great to hear Jo finally say something about it!!!! AND BE THERE!!!! I can just imagine what this is like for her! I REALLY WANT TO GO!!! i actually wanted to be there to see everyone, but that didnt happen!
OHMIGOSH. The best place in the WORLD. Sucks that I dont even live on the same continent, and I’m skint. Baaaaaahhh, want to go:’(
