    Harry Potter fans probably thought they’d seen the last of the boy wizard on the big screen but a ninth film is reportedly being secretly shot.
    However, you’ll have to visit a theme park in America or Japan to view it.

    Witching hour: Actress Helena Bonham Carter (far right) will reprise her role as Bellatrix Lestrange in the new 'mini movie'
    The ‘mini movie’ is understood to be have been commissioned for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando.
    It will also be shown at two new Harry Potter theme parks currently under construction in Japan and California.
    Actress Helena Bonham Carter – who played Bellatrix Lestrange - is one of the stars said to be reprising her role.
    The actors have been filming at Warner Brothers’ studios in Hertfordshire but details of the plot are being kept under wraps.

    That looks like parts for the Gringots coaster

  3. An exciting part of the construction process at the forthcoming Diagon Alley expansion at Universal Orlando has begun: The rumored Gringotts ride is getting its coaster track!

    Ride details

    Universal Orlando has been quietly working on the second phase of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park, and today we’re learning more about what to expect when you ride the real Hogwarts Express.

    We’ve known for some time that Universal’s Islands of Adventure is working on a real Hogwarts Express train to connect their existing Harry Potter area with a brand new, London/Diagon Alley-themed one at sister park Universal Studios. Up until now we weren’t sure exactly how Universal will entertain passengers on the train ride.

    MiceChat writes, “the train will be an immersive experience hauling you between London and Hogwarts. You’ll encounter students on the train and see elements of the Potter world play out in front of you through the windows of the train (such as the Weasley’s flying car and a Dementor attack). Rides will offer variation, so if you make the trip between the parks more than once, you won’t experience the same exact story.”

    I went to Islands yesterday, and saw another crane (or two?) has been put up:
