Universal Orlando to reveal more Harry Potter details on Blu-ray/DVD release
Written by Robert Niles
Universal Orlando next Tuesday will reveal (officially, at least) more details about its Wizarding World of Harry Potter attractions, which open in Islands of Adventure next spring. The reveal will happen in the bonus extras on certain editions of the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince DVD and Blu-ray discs, which drop tomorrow, Dec. 8.Tweet
From Universal's press release:
The Blu-ray combo pack and 2-Disc Special Edition DVD includes a special 11-minute video that reveals more about the The Wizarding World of Harry Potter than has been announced to-date. The sneak peek featurette includes interviews shot on location with stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and more – with each sharing new details and their excitement about The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
The buildings are topped out now, and work continues on interiors and ride programming, I am told from inside (and very unofficial) sources. The consensus seems to be for a May opening, rather than earlier in the spring, with grad night participants in April being allowed to at least walk through the area, if not ride rides on soft openings.
