Uhhh, Angelenos!! We get to go to HOGWARTS! Very, very soon!
Though we've heard whispers of such magic for quite some time now, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will officially be coming to Los Angeles’ Universal Hollywood, as construction is set to start this summer!!
We repeat. Harry Potter. Los Angeles. SOON.
As part of NBCUniversal’s 25-year Evolution Plan, the goal is to create tons — 30,000 to be exact — of jobs and hopefully generate $2 BILLION!
The theme park will hopefully be ready for the public by 2015, and though it’s not clear which Wizarding World attractions will be built, we do know that Hogwarts Castle will be a centerpiece.
"The Hollywood experience will be faithful to the visual landscape of the fiction and films, including Hogwarts castle that will serve as the centerpiece of the impressively themed environment."
Don't think we're too old for some Harry Potter!
WE ARE SO STOKED. YAYAYAYAY!!!!
