    Heard a depressing rumor about USH's Potter...Maybe someone knows more?

    There is a rumor going around that the Gibson's contract was extended to 2015 so we won't see Potter until 2019. I can't believe that Universal would allow something like this too happen, Potter is a BIG deal and too just wait for another 3 years seems like a really REALLY bad business decision. At this point Potter wont open in USH for another 7 years...i CANT believe that this rumor is true.

    Maybe Uni could buy out the contract, or they could relocated the Gibson to another Venue for the remainder of the contract (Because I'm also hearing that they want to start construction end of this year beginning of next....Prep work has already begun around the Gibson [Soil Samples and stuff]) why would they bother right now?

    Does anyone have any other news about this?...I'm gonna be really depressed if we don't see Potter for another 7 years :P Also things seem to be moving too quickly for a project that is 7 years away.

    The contract rumor has been going around for the last couple of weeks. Don't know if it's true or not.

    I suppose its possible that the Gibson won't be the location...however at the press conference last Dec there was word that it was at least partially the site (not officially however).....Whether it goes over to Waterworld or back into the tram area is still the main question.

    Also, they have been taking soil samples from the Gibson grounds, seems silly to do that if they have no plans to build there.

    I just have to really doubt that Potter would open in 2019.

    If the contract is renewed for the Gibson then Potter was probably meant for another location.

    I doubt it'll be that long. Seven years is pushing it. Guess we'll just have to wait and see for the announcement.

    ^well Potter land is going to take 3 years to build.....so even if it pushes back 3 years...it's REALLY going to lose some steam being announced last and being pushed back and not even coming for 6....or 7 years

    One Universal executive said there are 200 acres of undeveloped land in the backlot. They don't film much back there. They must be thinking of keeping Gibson if this is the truth.

    Re: Heard a depressing rumor about USH's Potter...Maybe someone knows more?

    You can do your own Google satellite image. You can retrieve the article when Harry Potter was announced in Universal.

    "We're not landlocked," Meyer said. "We're (on) 400 acres on this lot and 200 of them are still not developed."

    The Wizarding World only needs 20 acres. It is a small footprint.

    On the other hand...

    "Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said he was told that a live concert venue, Gibson Amphitheatre, would be scrapped to make way for the attraction. He said it would open around 2014, but officials did not give a date."
