Key cast of the Harry Potter films have been mobilised to shoot new scenes, according to The Sun. Yes, they are a British tabloid but very often bang on with reports of who has been filming what and where – they certainly nailed it with Daniel Craig going to Buck House to play James Bond with the Queen.
But the point, really, is in what these scenes are:
The new “mini movie” will go on show at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction in Florida and two new Hogwarts theme parks under construction.
The only cast member specifically named is Helena Bonham Carter but The Sun do also cite “a source” in saying:
The cast have really enjoyed getting back together — they are so tight-knit.
I wonder who the line-up includes? And I wonder if JK Rowling has written these new scenes? I guess she was at least consulted over the concept.
I hope that the new shoot isn’t for down-the-lens videos for the queue but something more narratively based. I guess we’ll find out soon enough – the Transformers ride at Universal was getting trailers for about a year before it opened.
