London is not psyched about the Orlando location of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. In fact, 18 months ago, Mayor Boris Johnson, urged Warner Bros. to build the theme park in London, but says he was ignored.
According to Deadline, Mayor Johnson thinks it's "utterly mad" that Americans are "to make money from a great British invention." Now he's going so far as to ask people to send petition for a new park in the city location. "I appeal to the children of this country and to their Potter-fiend parents to write to Warner Bros and Universal, and perhaps, even, to the great J.K. [Rowling] herself," he said.
We get why the mayor is up in arms -- the franchise was written by a British author and all of the films' actors are British, too -- but England is getting its own amazing attraction at Leavesden Studios. Sure, it's not a major theme park, but muggles will still be immersed in the full Harry Potter experience when tours of all the HP film sets open in 2012.
What do you think? Should there be a Wizarding World of Harry Potter in London? Or does England have its fair share of the magic action with its Leavesden Studios attraction? %Poll-47855%
