The new Diagon Alley expansion of Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter opens July 8, 2014. At the preview, stars of the Harry Potter franchise spoke with Entertainment Weekly on what they think their alter egos and their families would be up to in the future.
What does Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) think Draco’s son, Scorpius, would be up to?
“He would be back at home pretending to be doing homework and doing bugger all,” says Tom Felton, who played Draco in the films. “I’m sure he’d be doing something mischievous, something he shouldn’t, and following in the footsteps of his father.”
Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) imagines what Ginny and Harry’s kids would do if they came to the theme park.
“What would Harry and Ginny and the kids do here? They’d probably walk in and assume it was actually Diagon Alley and start shopping for their yearly supplies for Hogwarts,” says Wright. “I think they’d go straight to Leaky Cauldron and then take all the kids for ice cream at Florean’s. I want to believe they would go to the Simpsons land. You have this recognizable yellow Simpsons family and this Wizarding family; maybe the two could merge.”
Oliver Phelps (George Weasley) shares his thoughts on what George would be doing in the absence of his brother, Fred.
“George would probably try to open a chain of Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes,” says Phelps. “He was obviously doing really well with it. I think he’d have a spin-off, Fred’s Dead, and try to see the lighter side of it.”
