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

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!

Cute.

Wizarding World Of Harry Potter Coming To Hollywood?

Filed under: Harry Potter

wizarding world may open in universal hollywood

We REALLY hope this happens!

After the tremendous success in their Orlando, Florida park, the word going around is that Universal Studios Hollywood wants a Wizarding World of Harry Potter of their own!

Given the limited space they have to work with, it seems like their big question is WHAT should they demolish to make room for the Wizarding World.

Our answer: ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING!

Whatever it takes, please make this happen, Universal!

Would U like to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter come to California?

He's looking great!

Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones and their two kids Dylan, 10, and Carys, 7, rode the Hippogriff ride at Universal Orlando's The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

The family sampled Butterbeer, got fitted for wands at Ollivanders, and toured Hogwarts Castle.

We're glad Michael's looking healthy and having fun. Such a lovely family.

Although they've been plagued by rumors of infidelity, John Travolta and a very sperminated Kelly Preston were having the time of their life at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando over the weekend.

Maybe they conjured up a spell to make the tabloids go away!
