In December we excitedly learned that the Harry Potter cast had slipped into their Hogwarts robes once more to film scenes for upcoming attractions at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter expansion at Universal Orlando.

Now, we’re hearing talk of what scenes we may see the actors in.

Hypable put its Extendable Ears to the ground and heard the cast is being utilized to film scenes for the Hogwarts Express attraction.

Rumors say the Harry Potter characters will appear in the queue for the ride and celebrate a new school year. The line to ride the train will obviously be a lengthy one, so the storyline may imply that the long lines are due to the new school year at Hogwarts beginning.

For over a year rumors have stated that the real Hogwarts Express will transport park visitors from the existing Hogsmeade Village at Islands of Adventure to the new Diagon Alley at Universal Studios.

Guests, it is speculated, will need tickets to both of Universal Orlando’s parks in order to enjoy both of the Harry Potter lands.

The initial report in December said that Helena Bonham Carter was one of the actresses filming park scenes, which led us to believe she was shooting something for the rumored Gringotts thrill ride. We still think that’s highly probable. Rupert Grint’s rep confirmed he was filming scenes as Ron, but would not say what for.

Universal Orlando has confirmed a Wizarding World expansion is in the works, but has not said a thing further. It is rumored to open in 2014 or 2015. The new Diagon Alley land is taking over the area once occupied by the classic Jaws ride.

    I wonder how it feels to come back to portraying the character that you had to leave behind a bit ago. I bet it feels strange.

      Maybe it feels nostalgic, like when you find on Youtube a video that you haven’t seen since you were a kid and you can’t find it anywhere else

        I love your comment and I agree, but I just had to say how old it made me feel. There were no YouTube videos when I was a kid, ahaha. I think VHS tapes would be more adequate. :P

      I agree. But it’s also probably nice. Kind of like a reunion…

    I live in Orlando and my friends who work at Universal aren’t allowed to tell me much but theu say that Potter fans are going to love it.
