Today was the very first preview rehearsal of Universal Spectacle Night Parade at Universal Studios Japan.

Replacing the Magical Starlight Parade, this is the second nighttime parade in Universal Studios Japan’s history.

Billed as the world’s first next-generation parade, the parade lasts for about 50 min; beginning with Floats starts from the “BEST OF HOLLYWOOD”, the parade eventually features floats from Harry Potter, Transformers, Jurassic World, and Minions.

As the floats move along the streets, the walls and buildings along the parade route will change one after another utilizing projection mapping. Universal Studios Japan has developed a new technology called “show orchestration”, which will synchronize the production of music, lighting, and visuals as the floats theme changes.

Personally speaking, I will say this parade is the best parade in USJ’s history.

Universal Spectacle Night Parade: Best of Hollywood, will officially debut on May 17, 2018.
