Harry Potter Theme Park for Us, Minions and Muggles

Yeay! And another big treat for us faithful followers of Potter. (Sorry it isn't Ms. Potter of Hill Top this time, though her own inimitable heritage shan't ever be forgotten so long as Peter, Benjamin, and their mates continue to flourish and frolic around at the Lake District; see previous article below on this subject) Of course, I'm talking about the other Potter, and his mates, who have surely captivated our society and managed to evolve from mere cult to prominent mainstream and, as it appears now, to an all-time classic, for his minions anyway. November 21, 2008 will quench us with the first part of The Half-blood Prince to be followed by the second part sometime in May of 2009, if I'm not mistaken. Then, the really big treat arrives in 2010, when The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Theme Park opens at Universal Studios in Orlando. Sweet! Imagine being inside the immensely significant settings: Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, Three Broomsticks, with an Owl's Eye View! The books are fantastic, the movies have been incredible, and the novelties, including the websites and events related and/or strictly devoted to the Harry Potter mania, abound. But these just aren't enough. They'd never gratify enthusiasts such as those who have followed the Harry Potter saga, as in us, minions. To be able to walk in a scene as the characters did in the story would fulfill both the muggles and countless minions of Harry Potter. Let this announcement from Universal Studios in collaboration with Warner Brothers confirm yet another major forthcoming Harry Potter event. This will be massive. Professor Trelawney's prediction is rather unnecessary in this case.
