The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Opens at Universal Studios Hollywood in 2016
April 8, 2014
With the original Orlando attraction planned for expansion, "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" is heading to the West coast. Universal Studios Hollywood today confirmed that a Los Angeles-based "Wizarding World" attraction will open its doors in 2016.
Inspired by the magical world created by J.K. Rowling and brought to life in the Warner Bros. films, “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” at Universal Studios Hollywood will be a fully immersive land designed for the entire family that brings the Harry Potter fiction and films to life with detail and authenticity. Similar to the Orlando Resort-themed land that opened in 2010, the Hollywood experience will be faithful to the visual landscape of the fiction and films, including Hogwarts castle that will serve as the iconic focal point of the themed environment.
“The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” is a collaboration between J.K. Rowling, Warner Bros. Entertainment and Universal Parks and Resorts.
