Could be the greatest in theme park writing.

Of COURSE J.K. Rowling's been doing a lot of work regarding Wizarding World. Like any good individual with a stupid popular brain child, they're not just gonna let Universal flip a coin and hope for the best. I'm not so sure why anyone even remotely considered that Rowling might not have anything to do with the majority project.

Anyway, it's good to hear that they're already moving along at a fair clip. Still, TWO movies for Deathly Hollows? This doesn't surprise me, I guess. There was probably just way too much important stuff to not fit it into two movies.

Back on topic: definitely looking forward to heading out to IOA when this place gets done next year. I've got high expectations.

Actually, I'm not surprised at J.K.'s dedication due to her genuine love of the series, but most often it seems that the movie/TV/book creators for attractions put little, if any, work into attractions based on their material. Glad to see this isn't the case.

I am weary about the outcome of the park, though. I mean, how well could they mimic the novels/movies with their budget? I hope it's done well, but it seems like an over-bearing project.
