June 17, 2010, 3:39 pm– More news from the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Our own AJ was at a press conference this morning where she managed to ask Rupert Grint two questions! He was at a press conference with Daniel Radcliffe and Tom Felton. Here’s what she has to say:
My first question was regarding his favorite part of the WW. He responded that he liked the pubs.
Second question, I told him that the FANS at Rupert-grint.us wanted to
know if he was excited that his film Wild Target was coming out in the UK
He didn’t know (it was so funny), it was a surprise to him that his movie
was coming out. He said he thought it was today (I said, noooo, tomorrow.)
Dan said something to the effect of them being so busy, that they loose
track of days.
AJ goes on to tell us that she then went on to a press conference with James and Oliver Phelps, Bonnie Wright, Matthew Lewis, and Warwick Davis where she got to include more questions and comments. She even enjoyed some butterbeer! She tells us that she has some great pictures and videos, so keep checking the site!
There is also a really EPIC video that shows the cast on stage officially opening the park. There is some magic, some light, and a lot of fanfare. You can check it out here.
Finally, MTV caught up with Rupert at the opening and has a brief interview with him which includes feelings on filming the last scene for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows which you can see here.
There is much more to come as Tao, AJ and Jo continue their visit to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Update : We now have our first images from the conference this morning. Here in the gallery.
