Merlin's Beard are we excited for this expansion to open up, especially after the deets that have come out today about the Hogwarts Express!

Not only will guests get to experience the countryside while riding from King's Cross station in the London expansion being built at Universal Studios Florida to Hogsmeade over at Islands of Adventure, they will get to see characters and creatures along the way.

But there's more! There are actually two experiences for everyone riding the 200-seat Hogwarts Express that's nearly identical to that in the movie: one for the trip to Hogwarts, and the other for the trip to London!

And we know for sure that we're going to get to see Hagrid ride his flying motorcycle, the Knight bus stuck in London traffic, and the Weasley twins riding their brooms (we'd love to ride their brooms, too…wink!).

Bloody brilliant! And it won't even be in 3D! It will be real scenes acted out.

Also making an appearance on your ride will be Buckbeak, a Dementor attack, and maybe, just maybe an experience similar to the candy trolley!

Chocolate frogs for everyone! Gotta catch 'em all, right?

If you're not overcome with enough positive emotions to conjure a Patronus, then get a load of this! Just like passing though Platform 9 and 3/4 in the movies, you'll get to walk through bricks to board the train! Or at least it will appear like you're running through walls.

VP of Corporate Communications for Universal, Tom Schroder, put it like this at a recent press event:

"I don't want to give it away, you have to experience it. But you'll see people…Transition through the wall, and you'll transition through the wall as you go to the platform."

We need a good Wingardium Leviosa to raise our jaws from the floor.

Ch-ch-check out some more in a preview released by Universal today…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Epic Harry Potter Prank!

Filed under: Film FlickersSilly!Harry Potter

harry potter inspired prank played on mta nyc transit

Check out the photo (above) to see the most epic Harry Potter-inspired prank in history! In fact, it may be one of the best pranks in history IN GENERAL!

An absolute genius Somebody placed a circle that reads "9 3/4" on the 14th St. Union Square subway sign in NYC.

For those of you not in the know, you should be ashamed of yourself that's the number for the platform where students board the train to Hogwarts.

It looks REALLY spot on! Could the MTA have been involved? Warner Bros? Both of them?

Here's what MTA spokesperson Kevin Ortiz had to say about it:

"We are not part of any sort of Potter campaign, but I've seen things like that before."

If the guilty party comes forward, they'll be subject to a $75 fine and it will be worth every penny!

What do U think of this epic Harry Potter prank?
