    Hey, if I could be in any movie I’d be in The Vampire’s Assistant because the Cirque Du Freak would be cool.

    The movie I would like to be trapped in is Harry potter, because it would be awesome to fly around on broomsticks and use a wand and do magic.

    The movie series I would like to be trapped in would be the Harry Potter series. It would be awesome! There would be so much magic in the air and it would be absolutely fantastic to experience a world of suspense and mystery, and discover the amazing wonders of Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizadry!

    I think that I would like to be trapped in The Lord Of The Rings- The Fellowship of the Ring. I was going to choose Harry Potter, but as interesting it would be to be able to explore the Hogwarts Castle and interact with Harry, Ron and Hermione, I can’t change the course of the actual movie, and so I would be hearing nothing but “Beware The Heir of Slytherin!” and so on. I would have much more of an adventure walking with the elves in Rivendell, tramping through snow in the Misty Mountains, battling with Legolas, Gimli and Gandalf in Moria, and of course enjoing the peace and quiet of the Shire. I enjoy the books just as much as the films, and love imagining I am in the book with them. I would spend my time in the movie chatting with Arwen, having mock sword fights with Boromir, having parties with the hobbits, staring at the One Ring, and learning spells from Gandalf. Oh, and I would attend Bilbo’s birthday party!
