Universal Orlando has revealed more details of the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley attraction.
Speaking at World Travel Market, Mike West, executive producer at Universal Creative revealed the new London-themed area will include a Leaky Cauldron restaurant as well as a main attraction based on Gringotts Bank.
A Hogwarts Express train will operate from Diagon Alley to the current Hogsmeade area in Islands of Adventure next door.

Calling all Potterheads!
You said what you wanted from the Harry Potter universe, and we curated a list of the top 5 choices! Where there wasn't consensus, Wikia staff chose arbitrarily. Although we can't give you anything from the list in real life, we agree that we would want all of these things! Check out the Harry Potter Wishlist below!
1. FireboltA Hogwarts acceptance letter deserves honorary mention because it barely missed being on the list by 1 vote! Happy holidays!
3. Invisibility Cloak
4. The Marauder's Map
I have this idea for a Harry Potter sequel series. Sometime after the ending of the eighth film (when everyone is now adults), a orphan muggle boy who live off the streets of London stumbled upon an magical relict. The mysterious item gets infused into his skin, granting him wizard powers. The wizarding world took an interest in him. When he turn 11, he is accepted to Hogwarts; the first muggle to ever to be accepted. Harry Potter can play a minor role in this, and his kids can go to school with the muggle boy. I've already come up with a name for him: "Jeremy Marx".
I'm just saying if that ever happens, I have a great idea who would in it.Read more >

Has any one noticed that in the first and second film the design to every characters wand was different to the rest of the films???
Here's Harry's wand from the first and second film:
See how it's more smooth and round tip and the handle is different it's not rough.using his wand for the first time.]]
Here's Harry's wand for the rest of the films:
See here it's very rough not smooth.
Another good example is Hermione Granger her too was smooth and no ingraved vines. When after chamber of secerts it changes to this design.
DID YOU NOTICE THIS????Read more >

I was just looking around, and realized that most of Sybill's predictions seem to have been correct. So I looked up the seer Cassandra, to see what I could find. It seems that in Greek mythology, Cassandra was cursed so that no one woud ever believe her predictions. Perhaps, this was handed down by generation and Sybill had the curse upon her. If this is true...PROPS to J.K Rowling for this brilliant link!Read more >

Hey, just wondering if the Avada Kedavra spell kills bacteria. And since the killing curse is blocked by a soul, then wouldn't kittens be excellent shields against it?

We are currently squealing and bouncing around in our seats, Potterheads, because we just found out that there is going to be a Harry Potter spinoff!!!! Keep reading for information from the official press release from Warner Bros. about the project!
According to the release, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” (which we saw in Harry Potter) will be an original story and will mark Rowling’s screenwriting debut! It is planned as the first picture in a new film series. The story is going to be set in the wizarding world and will feature magical creatures and characters, some of which will be familiar to devoted Harry Potter fans. “Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for seventeen y…Read more >

What if you could create a TV series set in the Potterverse? How would you bring Rowling's world to the small screen in weekly series?
An animated children's show about previously unknown adventures of the main cast
A kid-friendly live-action series set in the Potterverse, but not directly dealing with the novel/movie storyline
A series about the childhood adventures of James and/or Lily
A gritty adult-oriented show
... any combination of the above elements, or something else entirely?Read more >

Our Time-Turner feature on the Harry Potter Wiki continues, thanks to the help of Hunnie Bunn.
Take a trip back into the history of the Harry Potter Wiki with Harry Potter Wiki:Time-Turner - Minerva McGonagall. This time around, we look back at the article as it was on August 6, 2007, about two years and a month after the Harry Potter Wiki was first founded. Things have come a long way since then, as Minerva McGonagall is now a thriving, featured article with numerous sections and, of course, the latest info from Pottermore. In fact, a while back, McGonagall's page was featured on Wikia as our choice for the best article on the wiki.
Looking back to 2007, while the page was much shorter, many of the basics were still in place, including some …Read more >
I'm finally going to harry potter world in feb of 2014! It's hard to get down there from where I live so it took time for my parents to say yes... especially with my mom's medical conditions. But they couldn't stand not going any longer so... They Said... YES! I'm so happy and I'm hoping other's will be going also! ;)Read more >
So, what I'm wondering was what happends if two muggle-born parents have a child. Would it still be a muggle born? Or would it be a new line of pure-bloods? I know that two pure-bloods make a pure-blood child, but what about two muggle-borns? Thats what I'm wondering - thanks for helping.Read more >
Greetings everyone, and welcome to the Lord Voldemort Wiki!*
I Lord Voldemort am pleased to welcome you to this new, improved, purely pure version of the wiki. A bastion of Dark Magic, join us now on the quest for immortality. Those not meeting our criteria must register immediately with the Muggle-Born Registration Commission. Please report any and all sightings of Undesirable No. 1 immediately. That is all.
(Note from the Harry Potter Wiki staff: the Ministry of Magic assures us that they will have this all under control by tomorrow. Something about April something... the details are still a bit hazy...)Read more >
Ok, so we all know about Pure-bloods, Half-bloods, and muggle born, but what about people with one half-blood and one pure blood for a parent like James Potter II, Albus Potter, and Lily Luna Potter. then wouldn't they be 3 quarter blood?Read more >
A couple days before Valentine's Day, the Harry Potter Wiki posted a poll to determine who you'd like be your Valentine. The results are now in, and can be viewed at our poll archive.
Of course, in looking back, there was one glaring omission from the poll, and that was Ginny Weasley. I'm sure there's many guys out there that would want her to be their Valentine, but I guess there's always next year.
Read more >
Looking at the results for male characters, it would seem that many of our readers have a taste for bad boys. Draco Malfoy was the top scorer, earning nearly 20% of the total poll vote. Severus Snape and Lord Voldemort combined also managed to pull in over 200 votes. Not that Harry Potter and Ronald Weasley didn't have their fans also, with Har…
Well, happy Valentine's Day, and I wish every lovebirds may live together forever! Although I am a Chinese, and I am not a Christian, but I was moved by the moving story of St. Valentine and his courage to protect love. That's why I like this day.Read more >
In November 2012, a new type of Harry Potter game experience was released. Called Wonderbook: Book of Spells, the game was met with excitement and great anticipation, as it utilizes a new type of technology to present an immersive and interactive experience, while introducing a number of new canon elements into the Harry Potter universe. So how does the Wonderbook experience stack up? Read on to find out.
Seeing as I already owned a PlayStation 3, I knew that Wonderbook was something that I definitely wanted to have. The very idea of the game is exciting-- allowing you to take control of your own magic wand and learn spells from a spellbook and view your achievements on-screen. The player is quickly drawn into the world of magic, with tales of wi…Read more >
A little while back, in association with Wikia, the Harry Potter Wiki had its first ever Reading Club. Over a couple of weeks, we discussed Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. It was enjoyed so much that we've decided to bring it back!
Join us at 7 P.M. eastern on Wednesday, February 20 (that's 4 P.M. western) for the first part of the chat for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. The chat will last for about an hour. Come having read Chapters 1-9 and join us for the following questions:
- Is this anyone's first time reading Chamber of Secrets?
- Did these chapters disappoint you in any way? If so, how would you change them to better live up to your expectations?
- Did you think the characters and their decisions or problems were realistic? D…

Hey there, ol' Voldy! The Harry Potter Wiki wishes you a very happy birthday as your poor, pathetic form molders in Limbo. And while you rot, we announce:
Harry Potter Wiki:Time-Turner - Tom Riddle
Read more >
Travel back in time to New Year's Eve of 2010 and view the Tom Riddle article as it appeared two years ago. At that time, most of the article that we have today was already in place, but since then, there have been some significant additions, including a new page-top quote, a signature image, more info for behind the scenes, a Media section courtesy of Wikia and an imagecat link. Take a look, and see how far we've come, and keep an eye out for the next Time-Turned article. ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:26, December 31, 2012 (UTC)
So, it's a bit late, but for Christmas, the Harry Potter Wiki asked if you had any Harry Potter related items on your list for Christmas. Here's what you had to say:
- Yes - Wonderbook: Book of Spells - 11.55% (227 votes)
- Yes - Harry Potter for Kinect - 3.87% (76 votes)
- Yes - Harry Potter Wizard's Collection - 12.72% (250 votes)
- Yes - Harry Potter Limited Edition - 3.76% (74 votes)
- Yes - Something else - 50.71% (997 votes)
- No - 17.4% (342 votes)
So, all in all, over 80% of our readers were hoping for at least something Harry Potter related for Christmas. But if they asked, did they receive? That's the subject of our next poll, so get in those votes, and in the next couple of weeks, we'll reveal just how many got at least some of what they wished for.

Harry Potter Wiki readers - ever wished you could travel back in time? Well, now you can with our new feature - Harry Potter Wiki: Time-Turner. The Time-Turner takes you back in time, allowing you to easily view one of our pages as it appeared in the past, with a new past revision featured every so often.
We begin with a previous revision of Harry Potter. This revision, dated February 28, 2006, allows you to see exactly how our article for Harry Potter looked back when it was first chosen as a featured article. At the time, the page was only about 6 KB in size. Only some basic biography info, one picture and a family tree were present, and only info through the first four films and six books, as the rest hadn't been released yet. We've real…Read more >

Hello all! As many of you must have noticed, there have been some changes to this wiki in terms of videos! Just to let you all know what is going on, I am going to list the changes that are being made (with permission from ProfessorTofty) of course.
- A rotating gallery of videos has been added to the main page
- A link to our Harry Potter video library has been added to the Community Messages
- Videos are getting embedded into the film pages and multiple character pages. Because there are so many videos, an extra gallery page has been added to the film page (which you can access by going to the Videos section)
Unlike Youtube videos, these are all fully licensed by our partners and unlikely to get removed from the wiki. We will continue to add video…Read more >
Well, I'm back and rested from my trip to San Francisco. The trip was great - the travel there went smoothly and everything went well checking into the hotel. After getting situated in, I spent a good portion of the night sleeping and got up early the next day for the trip to Wikia headquarters.
It was a rainy morning, but I had my umbrella and I made it in without getting too wet. Things cleared up somewhat later in the day and it stopped raining.
At Wikia's headquarters, I was introduced to the tool that they use to create videos upon request. It's a neat program that has access to a lot of video, including all of the Harry Potter movies. Unfortunately, that particular service was acting rather flaky at the time (the fault of the third-par…Read more >
