A round of reports have come online regarding cast from the Harry Potter films attending the June 18 grand opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction at Universal Orlando Resorts. First, there is an article online via Central Florida News Channel 13 which is reporting actor Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) will be attending the grand opening, along with actors James and Oliver Phelps. Readers will recall last December, TLC first received word that the twins would make an appearance at the park’s grand opening. Next, confirmation has also come online via Rupet-Grint.us that the Ron Weasley actor will also be in attendance. Lastly, an article in The Times states that “Sir Michael Gambon, who is the headmaster Dumbledore, will fly to Florida for the opening of the new attraction, part of Universal’s existing Islands of Adventure theme park.”
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will have its grand opening on June 18.
