Wotcher Harry Potter fans!
It looks like the mayor of London wants a Harry Potter theme park there too, according to his interview with The Telegraph:
Because the fact is that Harry Potter is not American. He is British. Where is Diagon Alley, where they buy wands and stuff? It is in London, and if you want to get into the Ministry of Magic you disappear down a London telephone box. The train for Hogwarts goes from King’s Cross, not Grand Central Station, and what is Harry Potter all about? It is about the ritual and intrigue and dorm-feast excitement of a British boarding school of a kind that you just don’t find in America. Hogwarts is a place where children occasionally get cross with each other – not “mad” – and where the situation is usually saved by a good old British sense of HUMOUR. WITH A U. RIGHT? NOT HUMOR. GOTTIT?
I know that Thierry and everyone at Warner Bros and Universal will do a magnificent job of making it look and feel authentic and faithful to the stories. But I know somewhere that’s even better than Orlando at looking like London – and that is London. I want to know why this Kingdom of Potter is not being built in the UK, and I won’t be fobbed off with any nonsense about the weather. They built Eurodisney in the Valley of the Marne, where it is at least as cold and drizzly as it is in London – and it has been a triumphant success.
I always say “humour” with the “u” even though I am American. Sorry, that’s random, huh? Yes, I do want one in London. There should be. And you should be able to get there by taking a train from King’s Cross Station.
But, as seeing Florida is just a little closer to me than London ( 😉 😉 Okay, a lot closer, but not close enough to just wake up and DRIVE there ), it seems more likely that I would visit Florida before going all the way to London. I think that they should make lots of Wizarding Worlds! IN EVERY STATE. Whoa… I think I need to get a grip really badly.
But, yes, I do think they should make one in London. There are a lot of HP fans there, too! They should just make one everywhere, and trust that people will come.
