Universal Studios have announced an exciting new addition to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – a stunning night-time show which will take place in front of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The incredible spectacle will showcase the school's four houses and their colours – Ravenclaw, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff and Slytherin – in a dazzling light show. Accio plane tickets!
The grand opening will take place in late June
The show will be accompanied by Academy Award-winning composer John Williams' original score for the film series, which was recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra, and will officially open on 23 June. This isn't the first time that Harry Potter fans have been able to enjoy a new rendition of the film's famous score, as Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is currently being shown with orchestra accompaniment from the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. The exciting screening will tour across the UK, travelling to Cardiff, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Glasgow.
The light display will be projected onto Hogwarts
Fans hoping to attend theme parks in Florida this summer are in for another treat as the opening of the new world of Avatar, 'Pandora' in Disney World's Animal Kingdom. The new world will include a boat ride through the luminescent rainforest, a virtual reality experience on a banshee and more. James Cameron opened up about the new section of the park, saying: "This is a place. And you can go there and walk around and see creatures and see a Na'vi and fly on a banshee. It is a bit of a trip that this was just an idea in 1995, and then it became a movie, and now it's a land… It's not a ride; it's a land. You know you've arrived when you've done a land."
