Cast & Crew

- Today, August 24, we want to wish a very happy 31st birthday to Rupert Grint. He was cast as Ron Weasley at the age of 11, without having much acting experience before. Ever since then, he starred in all eight Harry Potter movies until 2011 and we're more than happy about this and would like to thank Rupert for bringing smiles and laughter to us by portraying Ron so perfectly.

As Harry Potter Web has announced (and which was confirmed by Universal) earlier next month, a new “highly themed coaster” was being built in the area that previously housed the Dragon Challenge dual roller coasters. Universal Orlando has finally provided us with a teasing look at the newest attraction by releasing a promotional art work.

It doesn’t have a name yet, but our first look at “the environment” being created for the “new experience” has arrived, and indeed it looks as though this new coaster will be set in the Forbidden Forest. We get a glimpse of Hogwarts in the background (which houses the cornerstone ride Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey), we see a coaster peeking out from a very dense forest, and we also see various Cornish pixies floating about, hinting at a bit of mayhem in the ride experience.

The attraction is being touted as Universal’s most highly-themed coaster yet, and it’s due to open sometime in 2019 at Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park, in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade. The press release says more details about the “magical new adventure” will be revealed in early 2019 so we will hopefully learn more in the next few months. But for now, this piece of promo art is incredibly exciting, so check it out in our photo gallery.

Game of Thrones’ Jon Snow, actor Kit Harington, admitted he always wanted to be in a Harry Potter movie and wanted to be Harry Potter.

Game of Thrones has wrapped filming for its final season, but you wouldn’t know it from the looks of Kit Harington, the man who plays Jon Snow.

While attending the Toronto International Film Festival to promote Xavier Dolan’s The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, Harington admitted that he’s under strict orders to maintain his “winter is coming” look.

Kit also talked a bit more about the film he’s in Toronto to promote, and he revealed a longtime desire to star in another famous fantasy franchise – the one we’re dedicating this website to.

“I always wanted to be in a Potter movie. I always wanted to be Harry Potter,” said Harrington, whose John F. Donovan character was a child star famous for a TV show about wizards.
