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)!!!

She may have just graduated and gotten back to work already, but it seems Emma Watson is already planning for her next film!

The Harry Potter star is reportedly in talks to star in a musical about good ol' El Lay alongside none other than Fantastic Four actor Miles Teller!

The movie-musical comes from the brain of Damien Chazelle and it's appropriately titled La La Land!

It's plot would center around a pair of aspiring actors in L.A. who, obviously, fall in love with one another.

However, they soon discover that their love may not be as perfect as they think because the struggles of being an aspiring creative in Los Angeles takes a toll on their relationship!

According to the "look-book" for La La Land, Damien wants to "capture the spirit of the city" in the film.
