This is turning into a roller coaster ride!

Despite multiple reports that original Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson would be reuniting in new wizardry footage for a upcoming ride at Universal Studios in Orlando, Radcliffe says otherwise.

"I know nothing about that," Radcliffe tells the Daily Beast. "They may very well be using existing footage that we'd already filmed for the movies, but I have had no calls or involvement in that."

After that was cleared up, Radcliffe addressed rumors that he's engaged. "No! Absolute bollocks. Absolute bollocks," he said.

The actor's denial (about the theme park) comes after Alan Gilmore, art director for the movies and the rides gave MTV News a slightly different account of how the 3-D attraction called Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts would look.

"It's all new, it's a brand new film," Gilmore was quoted as saying. When asked if the three original Harry Potter stars would appear in the footage, Gilmore said, "They'll be there! It's quite exciting…. They're regrouping for one last adventure."

This is how the footage is officially being described —"Harry, Ron and Hermione break into Gringotts bank to retrieve a magical object that will help defeat Lord Voldemort." That's according to the  Universal Orlando website.

Even if there is no reunion, can't blame us for wishful thinking.
