Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint have reunited and shot some new Harry Potter scenes! Wait, what?
Yup, the Harry Potter titanic trio got together and filmed a series of never-before-seen scenes that will be used exclusively as Universal opens its latest ride at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando.
Sorry Potter fans, you have to head to Florida to catch Radcliffe back as Potter, Watson back as Hermione and Grint’s return as Ron.
Alan Gilmore, art director for the Harry Potter franchise and the ride itself, admitted to MTV that the iconic trio would be shooting the scenes. "They’ll be there! It’s quite exciting. They’re regrouping for one last adventure,” he said.
“It’s all new. It’s a brand new film. And it’s absolutely film quality, involving the films team, a merging of the film team and the Universal production team."
The new ride is called "Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts." As fans know from the series, a certain evil woman is involved and the woman who plays her -- Helena Bonham Carter -- has reprised her role as Bellatrix Lestrange in the footage as well.
If you recall from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Harry, Hermione and Ron stage a daring escape from Gringotts on the back of a dragon and for those who experience the new ride in Orlando, it will feel much like that -- and you’ll get to see the new Potter footage during the thrill fest!
What will you see, specifically? Gilmore says that riders will see "the full building on the exterior, we have a dragon on the outside, we have the bank, we have the goblins, and all the ancillary rooms to the back of the bank that nobody has ever seen before."
Count. Us. In.
