Dumbledore and Dumber
The Harry Potter film franchise, which comes to an end July 15, leaves a legacy
of spinoffs. Among the most notable is Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of
Harry Potter, which opened about a year ago and resulted in the 20-year-old
theme park’s best business ever, with quarterly visitors soaring from 1 million
to 3.7 million. Another follow-up: Harry Potter: The Exhibition, a show that
opened at Chicago and Boston museums in 2009 and is at New York’s Discovery
Times Square this summer.
