There may not be any more books for die-hard Harry Potter fans to look forward to after the seventh and final instalment hits bookstores in July this year, but they will certainly have another treat to keep them busy – a Potterworld theme park.
Plans have been drawn up for the place, that will not only include the village of Hogsmeade, but also a life-size Hogwarts Castle and a Forbidden Forest.
The park, which is scheduled to open in Orlando, Florida, US, in 2009, has already been given the green light by none other than the creator of Harry Potter and his pals – British author J K Rowling.
Rowling, who got a look at the plans recently, admitted "The plans look incredibly exciting. I don't think fans will be disappointed," according to The Sun.
And while fans wait for the park to be built, they can either spend their time reading the final book Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows after it hits bookstores on July 21, this year or watch the movie adaptations of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince .
While Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix will be hitting theatres on July 13, the movie adaptation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is scheduled for release next year.
