Harry Potter will have a new neighbor from the colonies.

UNIVERSAL CITY, CA & ORLANDO, FL — The rumors first reported here in December are apparently true: Universal Parks and Resorts has secured rights to build lands and attractions based on Broadway’s smash musical Hamilton.

In 2007, the Universal Studios theme parks in Orlando and Hollywood scored a coup over their Disney rivals when they obtained rights to the popular Harry Potter books and movies. The resulting “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” has been an unqualified success. Universal is hoping the new Colonial World of Alexander Hamilton (name subject to change) will be a hit as well.
