Thanks much to TLC reader Cassandra M, we now have video here in our galleries of one of the new commercials airing on NBC for the upcoming Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park attraction at Universal Orlando due to open next Spring.

On a related note, we’ve gotten a tip that the Wizarding World of Harry Potter will be featured on one of the new episodes of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice. Also mentioned on Screamscape, the report to TLC says that the contestants were given the task of making a promotional stand for the theme park in Florida. There were loads of Gryffindor cloaks, plus broomsticks and wands used in the segment, and the contestants unfortunately were not Harry Potter fans, with one being a notable musician who struggled during the task. This episode is due to air as the fourth installment on the show starting next March. As exciting as all of this sounds, please keep this in the rumor category for now.
