Universal Orlando has released a two additional photos as well as a video of cast members from the Harry Potter films as they received a sneak peek at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park.  The first new image, which can be found here, features actors Emma Watson (Hermione), James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George) and Matthew Lewis (Neville) getting a first taste of Butterbeer at the famed Hog’s Head pub in Hogsmeade.  The second new image shows Emma Watson, Robbie Coltrane, James and Oliver Phelps, and Matthew Lewis standing at the entrance gates to Hogwarts Castle.

An accompanying video features the cast experiencing the park, looking inside Zonko's Joke Shop, Honeydukes, Hogwarts Express, and the Forbidden Journey ride.  The video also features the inside of Ollivander's where Miss Watson choses a wand from the shop keeper, and we see a short glimpse of what looks to be the end of the Forbidden Journey ride.

Update: An new photo, this one of Miss Watson holding her newly chosen wand, is also available to view in our Image Galleries.

Natalia{ROAR} don’t you know that the fun is also in the planning? Think of how you would get there – train, flying, bus, driving (add gas cost), or group planned trip. How many days do you want to stay (I want to stay 5 days)? What kind of food, snacks from Honeydukes,or treasures from Zonkos, will you want to buy. You may not have the money to go again so estimate the cost to buy all that you’ll want to buy (ask people who have gone for a good idea of how much to bring. This site is a good place to ask. Maybe there’ll be just such a page on this site for people to ask questions of those who have gone already and for those who have gone to tell us of their experience). Find out if there a HP sighting that has a separate cost and how much is it? How to get the money…save allowance, wk summer job(s) (for however many summers needed), invest and reinvest in your company’s vacation fund (if they have one) until you have the amt you want, or work overtime at work. If you don’t have a job then think about when and if you get a job how much you’d need to save but still plan. It may seem crazy to plan a trip when you have no money but we can dream, can’t we? “I chose a road less traveled by and that has made all the difference,” Robert Frost

The actor they have playing Ollivander looks like a rabbi in a prayer shawl. Doesn’t work for me somehow.

I’m curious about what the special effects are with different wands that you pick up. From Emma Watson’s scene, it looks like ceiling spotlights flash when you pick up the one that they want you to buy. Is it just the most expensive model? Or will there really be a wide variety, with different ones eliciting the effect randomly for different buyers? Sorry to sound so cynical, but remember that this is a big moneymaking venture that we’re talking about here – not the “real” Hogsmeade.
