First look at Universal Studios Japan's Halloween Death Eater Attack

September 13, 2016, 9:22 PM · We told you last month about the Halloween celebrations that are coming to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter... in Japan. Now, we've got our first look at the Death Eater attack that's starting tomorrow at the Osaka theme park, thanks to a preview video from the park.

The Death Eater attack play several times nightly, after the dark and in front of Hogwarts Castle.

In the daytime, the happier side of Halloween gets its turn at Japan's Wizarding World. In the Daytime Trick-or-Treat, elementary-aged children and younger can point their wands at a mysterious wooden barrel, that will erupt with candy when hit with the proper spell. (We're still awaiting our first video of that!)

The Halloween celebrations at Universal Studios Japan's Wizarding World of Harry Potter run from Sept. 14 through Nov. 6.

No thanks!
