TWIST News: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is Coming to Hollywood!


Hey TWIST readers,

Harry Potter may take place in England, but Harry, Ron, Hermione and the rest of the crew are coming to Hollywood! It was just announced that The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the Harry Potter-themed theme park area, is coming to Universal Studios Hollywood! Harry Potter film stars James and Oliver Phelps, who play Fred and George Weasley, were at Universal Studios Hollywood for a butterbeer cheers to celebrate the big announcement. James tweeted, "Yup it's official, Hogwarts is coming to Hollywood!" The original Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened at Universal Orlando Resort in Florida in June 2010 (I've been a few times, and trust me, it's incredible!), and Universal promises that the California version will be just as magical! In addition to the new WWHP in on the west coast, it was also announced that the Orlando Wizarding World will see huge expansions too! How awesome!

Have you been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando? Would you go to the new one in California? Tell us in the comments! Don't forget to pick up the new issue of TWIST! It comes out Monday!

With love, Krista
