There are more interviews to tell you about, conducted during the barrage of press for the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. We now know of a series of delightful podcast interviews from Heart radio in London, England, where actor Dan Radcliffe (Harry), Emma Watson (Hermione) and Rupert Grint (Ron) answer a series of questions from fans. Dan Radcliffe admits he was skeptical about the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park attraction being built in Orlando, Florida, but after learning about it and seeing the work lead by production great Stuart Craig, Dan is very enthusiastic about the park. He confirms that he and the trio have filmed a bit for the park, and also notes that there is a “Quidditch Element” as part of one of the rides. Dan also mentions the ‘quite menacing’ presence of Nagini the snake in Deathly Hallows.

Other interesting details come from Emma Watson who says once again that she does NOT have a Twitter, nor a Facebook nor a Bebo account. This is important to note because fans by the drove have owled regarding this question, and while she has denied this previously on her official site, she again dispels these rumors. Finally, in a fun interview with Rupert Grint we learn his personal ice cream truck is getting a paint job and will soon be on the road again, however he wont be selling any ice cream anytime soon as you have to have a special permit to do so-sorry folks! To listen to each of these, click here then iTunes will open for each of the podcasts (free) Enjoy!

Heart's my local station..:)Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: Oh cool, a quidditch ride + Nagini!! Sounds awesome! :-DAvatar ImageSteph says: I am SO excited about the park! I can't wait until it opens and I get the time to visit. :D Avatar ImageAlbus Marcos Dumbledore says: That is so cool that a harry potter park is going to open in the U.S.A i thought it would open in England or some were in Europe. I wish i could go. gess i have to what to get a car and the money Avatar ImagePhylis says: I bet the park will be awesome! Avatar Imagedeadtree says: cool, a quidditch ride! Woo! I'm so looking forward to the whole park. Rupert having a personal ice cream truck is simultaneously the weirdest and most adorable thing I've ever heard. Avatar ImageRemus Greyback says: I am more excited about three broomsticks.Avatar ImageAnikaKindal says: I think some readers are missing that it "is a "Quidditch Element" as part of one of the rides" with the operative word being PART. As far as I have seen there is no plan for a purely Quidditch ride (too bad).Avatar ImageRemus Greyback says: I think the park should be in Britain.The whole harry potter franchise is British right.That is just not fair.Avatar ImageMoose_Starr says: It's good to know that Dan is now enthusiastic about the ride because, hopefully that means it's going to be great. And, it's really exciting that Quidditch is going to be a part of the ride, too. Avatar ImageHorcruxalej says: sweet i love quidditch.. i just realized we wont see any more in the movies...Avatar Imagensa says: wow! a quidditch ride now thats going to be a real fun.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: What color is the truck?Avatar Imagebudgie says: I would love to see the park.Avatar ImageThe Hollow says: Remus Greyback, seeing as how WB owns the rights, and they are an American company, then it makes sense the park will be in America. Also, Universial Studios in Orlando, Florida is a theme park known for containing MANY hit movie theme attractions(like Shrek, Terminator, etc). Next to the movies, this new HP park would be a hit for WB and the series franchise, especially at this place. It was smart to chose this particular theme park. Also, I see it more sensible for people from the UK being able to visist the US rather than droves of Americans traveling to the UK. Boosts the economy.Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: awesum :) :)Avatar ImageDlcohm7 says: Sad Emma doesn't have a twitter account,even Tom was following this so called Emma..He thought so too,so did I.Why didn't he ask the real one? hm. Well, I am unfollowing her.Glad about the quidditch ride, new they had to do that.And Rupert: Just get a license for your truck! How hard is that, sheesh! ;)Avatar ImageLavendergirl says: I would so want to ride on that quidditch ride!Avatar Imagewoodersongal says: I can not wait for Wizarding World of Harry Potter to open at Universal. We have been building a Hogwarts saving fund for months now. Everyday, everyone in the family dumps all their change in a big water bottle. It's building up.Avatar Imageauror12grimm says: Thanks!!Avatar Imagebleucatt says: Oh I'm so excited! It's even cooler that they filmed some stuff specifically for the park, so it'll be like a mini-post-harry movie haha.Avatar Imagepinkmoosely says: Sounds amazing but I hope the quidditch ride is more comfortable than the actors say the quidditch filming was :)Avatar Imagemariapotter says: Is there an exact date of when the park will open? I'm sure it's been posted but don't have the time to go back and check. Avatar ImageDanielleD says: going to download these now! :)Avatar Imageevannaa says: Okay, so I'm gonna download that right now :)Avatar Imageteam ron says: imusually not a big rollercoaster person but if theyre anyof them there im going on them Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: ooh way neat! :DAvatar ImageWingardium Leviosa says: I'm really excited for the park!Avatar Imagevicky granger says: Woohoo !
