Toshimaen Park in Toyko will be turned into a Harry Potter amusement attraction, ready to be opened in 2023!
Warner Bros. may be planning to open a theme park dedicated to Harry Potter in Tokyo.
Japanese financial media this week reported that Japan’s Seibu Holdings is in talks with Warner Bros. and the Tokyo metropolitan government to replace its Toshimaen amusement park in Nerima, Tokyo.
 

 
Tokyo mayor, Yuriko Koike subsequently told reporters that “negotiations are underway,” but declined to offer details, including the identity of the negotiating partners. “We are not likely to be commenting,” a Warner Bros. spokesman told Variety.
The reported plan is to shutter the Toshimaen park, which has been a Tokyo institution since 1926, in stages, starting this year. In its place will rise a new Harry Potter park tentatively set to open in 2023. It will have studio sets that visitors can tour, but not rides, similar to Warner’s Harry Potter attraction in London.
 

 
Meanwhile, the Tokyo government will reportedly use most of Toshimaen’s land as a public park that can also double as an evacuation site in the event of a major disaster.
Seibu, Warner and the Tokyo government have yet to publicly clarify the park plans, including a sale price. It is reported that the 200,000 sq.-meter Toshimaen site has a book value of $80 million. A formal announcement is expected sometime this spring.
 
Globally, there are no theme parks that are wholly dedicated to the Harry Potter phenomenon. But rights have been licensed to Universal for use in parks including its Islands of Adventure site in Florida and Universal Studios Hollywood, where The Wizarding World of Harry Potter section opened in 2016.
Some $413 million (JPY45 billion) was spend adding Harry Potter facilities to Universal Studios Japan, which is located in Osaka, 315 miles (506 km) to the West of Tokyo. These opened in 2014.
The Toshimaen Park was once packed in the summer with kids and their families enjoying the swimming pools, rides and other attractions. But from a peak of 3.9 million admissions in 1992, visitors have steadily declined, falling to 1.12 million admissions in 2016, the most recent year for which figures are available.

A phenomenon like no other, Harry's incredible journey begins with The Philosopher's Stone. Unhappily living in a cupboard under the stairs at his aunt's, he's visited by a giant called Rubeus Hagrid who delivers the most astonishing news - Harry's a wizard. As he heads to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry makes friends with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, meets oh-so-wise Professor Dumbledore and the complex Severus Snape and their incredible adventure begins. But evil in the shape of Lord Voldemort is getting ever closer - and the Dark Lord has his sights set firmly on Harry.

Throughout the seven books, Harry learns what it means to be a Gryffindor student and the value of friendship and trust. The eight films starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint were a record-breaking success and now you can relive the stories where it all began time and time again with this amazing Harry Potter box set - Expecto Patronum!

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince  Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Why did the Voldemort send death eaters to enter Hogwarts
Hello HP fans,
 
I’ve been a big Harry Potter fan over the years and generally find the plots and stories very consistent throughout the 7 books. However, I cannot fathom why the death eaters decided to enter hogwarts at the end of the book. Why would Voldemort just allow his followers to enter the castle knowing full well dumbledore would eventually return from his travels.

Fan Theory: Dumbledore used a time turner to arrive at Harry's trial in Order Of The Phoenix
Harry was put on trial at the start of the book and film for discharging his Patronus to defeat a Dementor – but did Dumbledore travel back in time to get the hearing?

When the trial begins, Dumbledore shows up unannounced to defend Harry to the surprise of Cornelius Fudge (and Harry alike). Fudge makes a remark that they had changed the time and moved the location of the trial, to which Dumbledore says (not verbatim, mind you) that he had ‘by some luck arrived at the Ministry three hours early’.
