The stars of Harry Potter talk about Universal Orlando's Diagon Alley
Published: June 23, 2014 at 8:51 PM
In this video of highlights from the press conference, you will hear from Domhnall Gleeson [Bill Weasley], Robbie Coltrane [Hagrid], Warwick Davis [Griphook/Flitwick], Matthew Lewis [Neville Longbottom], Evanna Lynch [Luna Lovegood], Helena Bonham Carter [Bellatrix Lestrange], and Tom Felton [Draco Malfoy] talk about their experiences in the new land, contrasting visiting Universal's Diagon Alley with working on the original film-set version.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley opens officially to the public on July 8. Today, Universal announced team member previews for this Wednesday through Saturday, which should pretty much lay to rest any hope of a public soft opening this week. Diagon Alley vacation packages start on Sunday, so we expect Universal hotel guests who booked those packages to get access then, with the possibility of public soft opens to follow only after that. Follow the hashtag #potterwatch on Twitter for alerts from other readers about a soft open, if and when it happens.
