Harry Potter Trio Reunited for One Last Adventure

Posted by Caelan Dooley Thursday, May 15, 2014
Harry Potter fans, raise your wands! Muggles and magical beings alike can experience the wizarding world with Harry Potter and his friends on the new Escape From Gringotts ride at Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter this summer.

Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson reprise their roles Universal's theme park ride


Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson will reprise their roles as Harry, Ron, and Hermione in brand new scenes on the new 3D ride, MTV announced.

Alan Gilmore, the art director for the park's rides as well as the films, told MTV that "They'll be there! It's quite exciting. They're regrouping for one last adventure."

Opening this summer as part of the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley area in Orlando, the ride will take patrons on a thrilling ride through Gringott's cavernous vaults where they will meet Bellatrix Lestrange (Helena Bonham-Carter) and He Who Must Not Be Named.

Featuring a recreated scene from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2 movie, Escape from Gringotts will be the main attraction inside the newly added Diagon Alley area.

The 20-person mine car is set on a track that parallels the path the trio took with Griphook the goblin (set to be reprised by Warwick Davis) as they pass through Thief's Downfall and face the 60-foot, fire-breathing Ukrainian Ironbelly dragon, Huffington Post confirmed.

"You get to see the events in the film from another prospective," Davis said in a Behind-the-Scenes video released by Universal. "The ride picks the adventure up just after Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Griphook have come through the waterfall of Thief's Downfall."

While the ride itself can be expected to be exciting enough, Universal and Gilmore has fully recreated Gringotts as seen in the films, from the intricate detailing of the exterior and interior of the lobby to the staff of goblins hard at work - which will fully move!

If that wasn't enough, J.K. Rowling's film adaption of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is set to hit theaters in 2016.

Check out the first look at the Escape from Gringotts:


Gringotts Bank, along with the rest of the Diagon Alley, will be opening its doors this summer, with an official date to be announced soon.
