Universal Orlando to reveal more Harry Potter details on Blu-ray/DVD release

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.
Also included are clips of the film series producers David Heyman and David Barron and the art directors working closely with the Universal Orlando Resort Creative team to create the magical experience that is The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Never-before-seen footage includes:
- Glimpses into the ride experiences of Flight of the Hippogriff, Dragon Challenge and Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey
- A first-look at some of the delectable foods and drinks, including Cauldron Cakes, treacle fudge and Butterbeer
- Universal Orlando Creative team members meeting with J.K. Rowling and the filmmakers
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.
