Universal Studios unveils new Harry Potter night show

Guests are being invited to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in a whole new light with Universal Studios Hollywood set to introduce its all-new The Night-time Lights at Hogwarts Castle experience.

The new offering features a dazzling light projection experience against the backdrop of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

As night falls on Hogsmeade village, The Night-time Lights at Hogwarts Castle will shine brightly with an awe-inspiring spectacle that showcases the four houses of Hogwarts: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin that culminates with awesome beams of lights that fan into the night sky.

The colourful state-of-the-art light display and special effects projection, designed to dance across the stunning Hogwarts castle, will be accompanied by a special musical arrangement created by Academy Award-winning composer John Williams based on his original scores composed for the film series.

The musical arrangement that will emanate in a surround sound environment was conducted by prolific arranger William Ross and recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra.

This new summertime feature will take place multiple times a night during its run. 

Live rehearsals with limited guest access will begin in June in preparation for the June 23rd grand opening.       

Inspired by J.K. Rowling’s compelling stories and characters that were brought to life in the Warner Bros. films, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood is a masterful recreation, faithful to the visual landscape of the fiction and films, including as its iconic focal point, Hogwarts castle.

From its snow-capped roofs and cobblestone streets to the historic British sensibilities that characterise the whimsical look and feel of the land, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter transports guests of all ages to the very places they watched on the silver screen.
