diagon alley opening post amazing wow

There is not doubt about the fact that the Harry Potter fan base is one of the biggest in the world!

Come on, just yesterday J.K. Rowling pulled a Beyoncé and dropped a new short story about 34-year-old Harry out of NO WHERE and the internet pretty much freaked out!

So, it's no wonder that the opening of the brand new Diagon Alley theme park at Universal Studios Orlando was a HUGE deal.

People lined up hours before and as soon as the gates opened, they sprinted inside while crying happy tears of joy.

So, you weren't able to be there for opening day? Well, have no fear because we've got everything you may have missed in one convenient place for you!

Someone Very Close To Angelina Jolie’s Heart Has Passed Away…

angelina jolie louis zamperini universal watermark

So sad!

We first introduced you to Louis Zamperini last year. His inspirational true-life story is being turned into a movie, thanks to Angelina Jolie who is directing and producing the project!

But this week, the 97-year-old passed away after a 40-day battle with pneumonia.

Angie and Louis became very close after she heard his harrowing tale of survival. Zamperini, a former Olympian, spent 47 days lost at sea during World War II. He was then captured by the Japanese and spent 2 years in a POW camp!

If that’s not an AH-Mazing movie plot, we don’t know what is!

Before he died, Louis spoke about his famous friend, calling Miz Jolie:

“A human dynamo!”

He also said he was certain that she would tell his story the right way.

The Zamperini family issued their own statement after losing Louis, which read:

"Having overcome insurmountable odds at every turn in his life, Olympic runner and World War II hero Louis Zamperini has never broken down from a challenge. He recently faced the greatest challenge of his life with a life-threatening case of pneumonia. After a 40-day long battle for his life, he peacefully passed away in the presence of his entire family, leaving behind a legacy that has touched so many lives. His indomitable courage and fighting spirit were never more apparent than in these last days.”

Unbroken, the film based on Louis’s incredible life, is due in theaters on Christmas Day. You better believe we’re gonna see it!

Rest in peace, Louis!

Filed under: Harry Potter

You might be saying to yourself "where are my dragons?!" and the answer is in the Diagon Alley expansion at Universal Orlando!

But the answer to when the The Wizarding World of Harry Potter's London expansion at Universal Studios will finally and officially be opened for good has just been unveiled (by the way, "unveiling" is what we'd like to do to Sirius Black).

You can get on a broom, or let a Ford Anglia drive or fly you the way down to Universal Orlando on July 8th! OMGinny! That's so soon, we don't even need a Time-Turner!

The announcement came this morning at an event that featured Matt Lewis (Neville), the Phelps twins (Fred and George), and Evanna Lynch (Luna)! Whoa, Gryffindor party of four!

And here's another magical tip: the grand opening for Muggles will be in July, but vacation packages are allowing guests to get their magic on as soon as June 29th!

Can't get your Wizard fix after hearing this? Then ch-ch-check out some photos from the new addition (above)!!!

Have Mercy! John Stamos Flaunts His Possible Lady Love During A Day Of Fun At Universal Studios Hollywood!

Filed under: John StamosLove Line

john stamos spends the day at universal hollywood with a lady friend7

Looks like Uncle Jesse & Aunt Becky won't be reuniting anytime soon!

Sad face!

The ultimate hunk, John Stamos, was spotted spending the day at Universal Studios Hollywood with a pretty gal pal who just may be his new lady love!

How scandalous!

The Full House star & his lady friend got in some laughs at one of the animal shows and proceeded to explore the rest of the park! They tried to go incognito, what with the hat and sunglasses, but we spotted them!

What a fun day date! Who knew Uncle Jesse was a roller coaster man!!

We love it!

The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter Releases Magical Details About The Hogwarts Express! You Will Aguamenti Your Pants When You Find Out!

Filed under: Harry PotterGIFs

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!!!
