Universal Orlando is going to make like a bishop from Wizard's Chess and move Diagon Alley!

The theme park's magical Wizarding World Of Harry Potter has been delighting fans of the franchise since 2010, but the fun is only half done!

Come 2014, wizards and muggles alike will be able to take the Hogwarts Express from the existing park area to Diagon Alley where they can ride into Gringotts Wizarding Bank!

No one know for sure what the next piece of the puzzle will look like, but if you're anything like us, you're dying to tap a wand on a brick wall to get in! And the new artwork suggests we might be able to do just that!

Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see the brand new teaser poster and the original concept art for the exciting addition!

Harry Potter Gets His Own Convention! Celebration Coming To Orlando Next Year!

Forget Comic-Con! Next year, we're going to Hogwarts!

Thanks to Warner Bros and Universal Orlando, Harry Potter fans will finally have their own convention!

The celebration will take place in and around The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter theme park in Orlando and will feature magic dueling classes, a film tribute, a meet-and-greet with some of the films' cast and crew, and more.

They haven't announced what stars will attend yet, but we're hoping they can use their magic to snag Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson away from their busy film and school schedules!

We don't know what we would do first, but we're pretty sure of what we'd do last- get drunk on butterbeer and disarm EVERYONE! LOLz!

Phase Two Of Orlando's Wizarding World Of Harry Potter Is Coming Much SOONER Than Expected!

Filed under: Harry Potter

Yes! YES YES YES!

We'd been so head over heels about the developments for The Wizarding Worlds of Harry Potter coming to El Lay and Japan that we had forgotten about all of the changes in the works at the original, in Orlando, Florida!

But as we've reported, Universal is busy expanding the franchise from its Islands of Adventure location all the way to where the Jaws ride used to be, which will allegedly become a new and improved Diagon Alley and London set…and will even house a fully functional Hogwarts Express train that will transport visitors to the original 'Hogsmeade' location!

Hold on to your sorting hat, however, because apparently, this could all be happening much sooner than anyone had anticipated!

Like NEXT-YEAR sooner, you guys!

In an announcement made this morning by Buddy Dyer, the mayor of Orlando:

All The Rumors Are True! Universal Officially Announces Plans For Harry Potter Theme Park Expansions!

Filed under: Harry Potter

wizarding-world-of-harry-potter-coming-to-hollywood__opt1.jpg

In the East AND West!

That's right, Hollywood: HARRYWOOD IS COMING!!!

We've been sharing with you for the past week some really exciting news about potential new Harry Potter attrations in Universal Studios Orlando and the creation of a whole new HP park at Universal Studios Hollywood. Well Potterheads, it's all TRUE, as confirmed by Comcast’s Universal Parks & Resorts this afternoon.

Universal Studios president Ron Meyer explained today that opening the original Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Florida was a "game-changer" for their theme park division and that the new installation in Orlando would create more than 1,000 jobs.

Now that's job creation at it's finest!

But here's something a bit disturbing for the L.A. Potter venture. It may come to pass that in order to make room of Harry Potter's playground, Universal’s concert venue Gibson Amphitheatre would be axed! Ouch! Don't think a lot of people are going to be too happy about that!

Sadly, no time frames or plan details were shared, but at least we all know now FOR SURE that this is all happening.

Bust our some butterbeer and do a happy dance!
