A new video has been posted on the Ellen DeGeneres Show website, featuring more of the talk show host's visit to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction.  As we've been reporting, two episodes were recently taped at the Universal Resort, and started airing across the country in syndication.  This new video, six minutes in length, takes us through Ellen's tour of the part where she experiences the many elements of the theme park care of two young tour guides.  Video of the Hogwarts Express, Butterbeer carts, Owlry, Dumbledore's Office, Ollivander's, and much more.  Watch below!



The first episode showcasing Ellen's Wizarding World of Harry Potter is set to air today; any readers with the ability to capture the video, please do send it in to staff@leakynew.com!

Loved being able to see it up close. Ellen and the kids left ALOT to be desired. It is not only the teens and 20 somethings that grew up with the books but us parents and grandparents that got into them (and some of us never got out) that would have given their eye teeth to do this spot on TV. And yes folks there will be a world of merchandizing going on, that you can take to the bank.

I was afraid this would happen.. There is nothing left of HP that is British anymore.

Like those kids walking into Honeydukes and calling the sweets “candy”. Yeah, in Orlando you call it “candy” but none of the characters call it “candy” because they’re not American!

Love Ellen though. She mentioned a couple of days ago she still hadn’t read a HP book yet she still seems a lot more excited then those snooty kids.

And why is it still children being targeted? Granted I know I’m now a little old (23) but get some teens at least, those kids weren’t around for the HP buzz.

Still don’t think I’ll go. Flights to the US are awfully expensive…

It looks like this was just a normal everyday trip for them.. I would be so excited. And honeydukes looks exactly like in the movie! I wish one had to to wear a cloak or something to enter the park. It would be so fun if everyone looked like witches and wizards, but I guess it would be a bit hot perhaps.

Why is everyone hatin’ on Ellen? She wasn’t being “insulting” or “idiotic”, she was just being Ellen.

What fantastic video showcasing the park! I truly believe that entering this park will effectively transport all fans into the universe of Potter for a day.

Guess That Book

"By the way, my dear," she shot suddenly at Parvati Patil, "beware a red-haired man."[br]Parvati gave a startled look at Ron, who was right behind her, and edged her chair away from him.
