The Lower Lot Character Shop has returned as the new Studio Store, Inside Universal has learned.
Once featuring an array of clothing and toys from Despicable Me, The Simpsons and Dr. Seuss, the new Studio Store is now solely dedicated to Universal’s new blockbuster property, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (set to open on April 7). Featuring wands, robes, shirts, notepads and items from the Harry Potter series, the new Studio Store marks the third Universal Studio Store on property and also the third non-Potter branded store to sell Harry Potter merchandise.
Internally, much of the internal layout and design remains the same from the previous Character Shop theme with some small differences. The exterior sign has notably reverted to the location’s previous name, while the interior features a slightly more blue paint scheme with monitor enclosures featuring Wizarding World advertisements. The large minion photo opportunity has also been replaced by the Flying Ford Anglia, which once stood in front of Feature Presentation.
We’ve included photos of the new store below. Please stay tuned to Inside Universal for more on this and other stories originating from Universal Studios Hollywood.
