When Universal officially opened the Wizarding World Hollywood in April 2016, it wowed visitors with a projection mapping show on Hogwarts Castle during its media event. The projections literally animated the castle, pouring light from its windows and illuminating its surface with the colors and symbols of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry's four houses.
Over the past few weeks, fans have been noticing multiple projectors and lighting elements appearing on rooftops and buildings in and around the land, fueling speculation that the "one night only" projection light show would return in some form. Now, we know officially that it will. The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle will play with a musical score arranged from John Williams' themes from the Harry Potter films. Universal also is promising soft opens and AP previews leading up to the official June 23 debut.
The Universal Orlando Resort previously announced its own Hogwarts Castle light show, but that one will be themed to and run during the Christmas season.
