The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter Is Getting A New Nighttime Show At Universal Studios Japan

If there isn’t any more Pottermania left in the world to live the magic well, some more exciting news coming out from Universal Studios Japan of a brand new nighttime show coming next month from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Here’s the full press release of what it will be all about:

 The night show in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ will use magnificent projection mapping to bring the magic and wonder of Harry Potter™ to life in a way never before seen at Universal Studios Japan®. The immersive show, that will leave fans in awe, unfolds above the Black Lake with Hogwarts™ castle serving as the backdrop and focal point. The incredible technology will brilliantly light up the night sky as Dementors fly ominously along the castle.

“The world of magic comes to life as never seen before. This immersive experience will make fans young and old tingle with excitement.


There is no confirmation or information if this brand new map projection show will come towards the Universal Parks & Resorts in the United States and projects for entertainment always change and develop over time. One of those rumors was the chances of the map projection show from the opening ceremony of Hogsmead last year at Universal Studios Hollywood and the potential guess that some sort of map projection will come down the line in the first half of 2017.

Orlando Informer is also reporting that Universal Parks is in partnership with Christie Digital Systems as the provider for the projections at the parks. The magic will begin for the new show starting April 21st, 2017 through November 5th, 2017.

This also includes brand new interactive wand locations scatter through out the Hogsmead Village to be included with the new nighttime show as followed:

Opening on the same day as the night show, are new Wand Magic locations where guests can experience the joy of casting spells. Following the Magical Wand Map, guests can practice their magic throughout the land from the moment they encounter the Hogwarts™ Express conductor to when they approach Hogwarts™ castle. Wand Assistants are on hand to assist new witches and wizards as they try new spells.
