Harry Potter and the quest for your entertainment dollar
Published: July 15, 2009 at 9:26 PM
Let's let this be an open thread to talk about the latest HP flick, as well as the Potter theme park land. I know that several folks involved in the project read TPI (remember, you can post anonymously by logging out first). And a few of them have been kind enough to leak some juicy stuff to me. (Thankyouverymuch!)
Most of big picture is out in the open by now: Kuka robot arms will power a suspended dark ride through Hogwarts Castle (think Legoland's Knights Tournament meets Peter Pan or ET - but with a much cooler storyline and animated effects.) The timeline will be in the middle of the book/movie storyline - around the fourth book, I've heard. Dining will be at the Three Broomsticks in adjacent Hogsmeade, with another more kid-focused attraction in the mix. And Dueling Dragons will be rethemed to Potter, as well.
So how do you think this will rate? Feel free to add your wishes or insider's details, in the comments.
