    So. I've been thinking--the Middle Eastern area borders VERY close to Hogsmeade. Shop of Wonders is RIGHT ON the tree shrubs and lamp post. The Sinbad theatre is RIGHT ON the Hogwarts Express area. Could they wall off that area for construction without angering Rowling?

    IDK how much Zelda would accommodate keeping the current area, since I'm not into Nintendo.

    I think cheaping out on Zelda - or any Nintendo franchise - in this way would be a fairly big mistake.

    Agreed but they may not even be able to replace the area in full because of JK.

    JK's influence doesn't go beyond the borders of Hogsmead. She also is aware it's a theme park with other area's. Don't expect a problem there. I think Universal is already going really broad with their Nintendo World at EU. If it's a hit with the general public it could grow or expand to other park, if not we still will have a wonderful area.

    Universal isn’t going to reuse areas with a splash of paint. I’d be a new build. (JK isn’t the one to worry about it’s WB)

    I think you misread my post. I didn't argue that it shouldn't be done, I argued that it shouldn't be done cheaply as a coat-of-paint retheme.

    Ultimately, id be shocked if this isn't Zelda by 2030. Just my own thoughts/speculation, but I'm betting Nintendo is a major success along the lines of the Wizarding World for Universal, and as others have mentioned, they'd want to double/triple down on the IP. Im so excited for the future at this resort its ridiculous haha. It'd be great to get even a small show or presentation take this one but ah well. I doubt anything goes here until Lost Continent goes.
