Thanks for the update, Laurie, but be careful...if you continue to do such a good job Robert will have to find a new gig! :)

Very excited for this parks patrons. Had no plans to go back to California but with Transformers and now this coming in the future, might have to make a special trip.

Fantastic news. Can't wait to hear more info on this.

DON'T tear down the best (indoor) concert venue in So Cal for Harry Potter! PLEASE find somewhere else to build it... (many people have been working there for 20+ years & it would be an absolute shame)

Pretty awful news, tbh.

And who else is getting bored with the Weasleys going to the opening of an envelope every few days? Jeez, they need new agents.

Disappointed. Nothing to tell us how they will put the Wizarding World in the park. Mixed messages too with regarding how they will develop the other 200 acres. If they do intend to develop the untouched land, why would they need to raze the Gibson Theater?

The Hogwart castle and Hogsmeade Village should be developed deep in the undeveloped portion of the Studios Tour as a third land (besides the Upper and Lower Lots). It is best to keep people staying longer. Otherwise, you get into park at the Upper Lot and the Harry Potter attractions are right there. You enter and immediate leave upon getting your satisfaction. (I suppose this already happening in Orlando so Universal is fixing it by opening the London counterpart in the Studios park.)

So I'm guessing that WaterWorld is more than likely in its last few months if it is true that the Gibson will be taken down and Harry Potter will be in that section of the park. I'm guessing once Transformers opens Water World may close down. We can only speculate now until we hear concrete details of the land.

Yeah, James and Oliver Phelps should fire that miserable agent who gets them a few thousand dollars for just showing up for half a day and hoisting butterbeers and posing for pictures with fans. Instead, he should let them focus on their waitstaff and construction careers like the rest of the struggling actors in Hollywood and London.

The nerve of the man!
