If you're a Walking Dead fan then you'll probably have wondered what it would be like living in a zombie apocolapse – and if you'd survive.

Well, Universal Studios was invaded by zombies on Tuesday as it unveiled it's latest attraction, The Walking Dead, based on the hit TV show.

The walk-through scare ride, which opens next week, begins just like the show, in a hospital and then takes you to various places where there will be actors playing survivors as well as zombies interacting the theme park-goers.

Ross Marquand, who plays Aaron in the series said: "I think people have a morbid curiosity about what the apocalypse would be like and how they would react to it, so they put themselves in different characters.

"And it's also a show about perseverance at the end of the day, you know, how you maintain hope and how you survive after everything you have lost or people you love have been killed off."

We are SO there.


Since the Orlando gun attack on Saturday night, people around the world have been expressing their shock, grief and condolences online.

Now, author JK Rowling has shared her devastation over the death of Luis Vielma – a 22-year-old victim who worked on the Harry Potter ride at Universal Studios.

The British novelist tweeted: “Luis Vielma worked on the Harry Potter ride at Universal.  He was 22 years old.  I can’t stop crying. #Orlando.”

A colleague of Luis then tweeted the author letting her know that Luis was a Gryffindor and that another Universal staff member is still in intensive care after the attack which left 50 people dead and 53 injured.

The message read: “I worked with Luis he was a gryffindor who would make you proud.  We have a slytherin who’s still in icu.  His name is Tony.”

The Harry Potter creator responded by saying: “I’m praying Tony pulls through.  My thoughts are with all of you #LoveIsLove #Orlando."


Harry Potter fans are now showing their solidarity with victims of the attack by sharing quotes and images online accompanied by the hashtag Orlando.





We really can’t wait for this one. Chloe Grace Moretz has been cast to play Ariel in the new live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Chloe will play the mermaid princess who falls in love with a beautiful prince and trades her tails for legs and feet in order to be with her man.

However, there's a twist. We’re not talking about the lovely Disney movie here. Nope, Universal are making the Hans Christian Anderson story come to life and it will be based on the original Danish fairytale, so it will probably be WAY darker than the Disney classic.

Still, we can’t wait to see the movie, and more exciting, we can’t wait to find out who will play her prince.
