Following the success of its two projection light shows on Hogwarts Castle, Universal's theme parks are throwing a third production into the mix. "Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle" will debut at Universal Studios Hollywood on April 13 and then at Universal Orlando's Islands of Adventure at a later, as-yet-unannounced date.
Here's the description, from Universal's press release:
As darkness falls on Hogwarts castle, Dementors, Death Eaters and other unspeakable creatures from Aragog and Mountain Trolls to Thestrals will cloak the castle with sinister images from the darker side of magic—even conjuring the visage of Lord Voldemort himself, until the Patronus spell—one of the most famous, difficult and powerful defense of the Dark Arts charms in the wizarding world—is cast.
The show will feature an all-new musical score based on John Williams' original themes. The show will run in Hollywood April 13 – 28 then again on May 25 – 27. Additional dates, including those in Orlando, are yet to be announced.
Universal played its first projection show on the castle during the media event for the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood. Fans loved the effects and demanded a recurring public show, which Universal delivered with The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle in 2017 and then holiday-themed The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle show later that year.Tweet
