Could Hogwarts be coming to Los Angeles? The L.A. County Board of Supervisors has approved Universal Studios’ request to build a Harry Potter Theme Park. The park, based on J.K. Rowling‘s blockbuster book and film franchise, is part of a $1.6 billion plan by parent company NBCUniversal to “invest in production and tourism projects over the next 25 years,” according to Hollywood industry trade Variety. The park itself is projected to cost about $500 million. Construction on the LA lot will begin later this summer; Universal Studios Orlando already has a Harry Potter Theme Park. At the end of last year, Sony released an augmented reality Wonderbook for its PlayStation 3 console called Book of Spells, inspired by the Potter series.
