Just weeks after J-14 Magazine apparated to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort to celebrate the release of the final Harry Potter movie on DVD with the cast and filmmakers, comes even more exciting news for Muggles and wizards alike... the Wizarding World is going coast to coast!
That's right -- another Harry Potter-themed attraction will be opening at the original Universal Studios Hollywood in Hollywood, California.
Oliver and James Phelps, who play Fred and George Weasley in the Harry Potter films, had the honor of making the big announcement at Universal Studios Hollywood yesterday over a toast of, what else, Butterbeer!
And that's not the only magical news. In addition to the Harry Potter attraction opening in California, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, which originally opened in June 2010, will also "significantly expand."
"I am delighted that the Wizarding World of Harry Potter has been so popular with fans since the opening in Orlando last year," Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling says. "I am sure that the teams at Universal and Warner Bros. will bring their expertise and attention to detail to Hollywood to make this new experience equally as exciting."
After experiencing the magic ourselves last month, J-14 can officially vouch for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter -- and can't wait to shed our Muggleness and go back to the wizarding worlds in Florida and soon California!
