      Word on the street is that it is going to get some of the WWoHP phase 2 attractions, so that development costs are shared... again that is the word on the street.

              I would think it's fair that USJ get HP for those who can't fly out of the country to see it, but I hope USH doesn't get it. We don't need it! We need something else that wouldn't devastate half the park haha.

                  By itself Oz isnt big enough to fit WWHP but if you push back towards the parking area, it has plenty of space.. It definitely makes the most sense to go where Oz is.. When I visited the area of oz it seemed not busy at all other than wicked , it seemed like a land with alot of promise but not much to do... Harry potter would be the boost that area of the park needs and in general something to help get USJ on track

                    Well this is a surprise! Certainly will give DisneySEA a run for its money if the rumors are indeed true.

                      Ok so one image is a close up of the physical area of the Wizarding World of HP, the other is zoomed out. Gives you a sense of scale. Basically Oz is the same size as the current Lost Continent aka WWoHP expansion.

                        ^ I think HP could easily fit in Oz. Just take away Dueling Dragons or even the Hippogriff and there you would have it.

                          How popular is Harry Potter in Japan though?

                            While I have no solid info to back it up, if there is one place in the world where I'd be hard pressed to doubt any character's popularity it would be Japan.

                            But what a good deal for IOA if any of this is true. Much like Disney and their OLC relationship, pawn the development costs with a 3rd-party owner and make the funds easier to justify for your own park.

                            Surprised Japan wants Harry Potter? No. I am just surprised that Oz is being rethemed already.

                              was shocked to see oz closing down so fast. i tot it just opened a few years back. I don't think it will HP as the land is super tiny. Went there once and it was just a small circle, not much space. thus if they really want to create HP, then they may need to extent outwards.

                              Furthermore, they are going to open in 2012, and I think it will be before the 10th anniversary celebrations end. If they really want to create HP, I don't think it can be done within 12 months or so, since oz will only close in feb next year.
                              I've posted some photos of the Christmas decorations inside Universal studios singapore here and some others here.=)
