Maybe Daniel Radcliffe shouldn’t limit whipping his wand out to just Broadway.

Not only is Disney is claiming that advance ticket sales for High School Musical 3: Senior Year are smashing records across the United Kingdom, but Brit cinema chain Odeon “said it had sold £245,205 [or roughly $500,000] in advance tickets, beating the record set by Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire,” reports the BBC.

And this is all before Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Corbin Bleu and Ashley Tisdale even touch down in London for the U.K. premiere of HSM3.
