Harry Potter Hand, Footprint & Wand Ceremony
The magic wand had invaded the Grauman's Chinese Theater this past Monday, July 10, 2007 as Harry Potter came rolling in from Hogwart's Academy to make a permanent mark in Hollywood. Along with his co-stars of the "Harry Potter" franchise, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Daniel Radcliffe had their hands, footprints, signature and wands etched into a slab of cement in a ceremony that drew throngs of crowds to Hollywood.
Good old mayor of Hollywood, Johnny Grant introduced the threesome to the crowd. As the crowds roared, the young adults looked pleasantly surprised and couldn't believe that they have achieved fame that they graduated to that special select few who have had their hands and footprints permanently affixed to the grounds of the Grauman's Chinese Theater.
The funny thing about the whole event was Mr. Johnny Grant himself. Imagine, hundreds of children attending the special event and Johnny tells everyone to turn to the Hooters Restaurant and wave at the Hooterettes.
Congratulations to "Harry Potter And The Order of The Phoenix!" It grossed about $44million on the first day of opening.
