Universal Studios Hollywood has officially announced “The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle”, which is set to start June 23 at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
As we originally reported in January, the new nighttime show will feature lights and music as projections are cast upon the iconic Hogwarts castle that showcases the four houses of Hogwarts: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin.
From the Press Release:
“The colorful 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 in London.”
This new summertime feature will take place multiple times a night during its run. Live rehearsals with annual pass previews and very limited guest access will begin in June in preparation for the June 23 grand opening.
