We knew we weren’t the only ones still obsessing over the epic 8 film series! In celebration of the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter opening in Universal Studios Hollywood on April 7 (and also just because they feel like it), the cast and crew of the Harry Potter series have taken to social media to share some behind the scene and onscreen moments, as well as a couple of special items for epic Potterheads.
Daniel Radcliffe, the star of the series who portrays Harry Potter, shared this post late last week on Google+:
Oliver Phelps, one of the notorious Weasley twins, also reminisced in memories on St. Patrick’s day on his Instagram:
As if the fun is over with a couple of pictures! The Official Harry Potter Movie team and Pottermore – a blog/website J.K. Rowling has created to keep the magic alive – are doing heaps of sweepstakes and fun articles to celebrate the opening of the third Wizarding World of Harry Potter!
E! Online takes us inside the magical village of Hogsmeade and provides tips for anyone planning to visit. With everything from ride tips to shopping lists, E! gives a full run down of what to expect at the park. Read more here.
Now that you know what to expect, there’s a few things you might not expect. Like maybe the fact that a portion of the cast will be there for the Grand Opening?!
Pottermore released a list earlier last week of the official VIP list you should await to see on the red carpet of Universal Studios Hollywood on April 5. Actors Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley), and Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick/Griphook) will be there to celebrate the iconic grand opening. And as a special guest, John Williams, Oscar-winning composer of the first three Harry Potter movies, will be there to attend with the cast.
After five years in the making of the theme park and five years after the final movie was released, the troop is not willing to let the magic ever die out. If you’re like us and grew up with these movies, you know perfectly well what we mean when we say the magic always lives on inside of us.
