After learning about the magical creatures we’d see on Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, it seemed like that would be it for news about the new attraction until it has its grand opening. That’s not the case today. Universal has now shared their most life-like animated figure ever – Hagrid who you’ll see during Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure.
Universal has shared some of the details that make this Hagrid figure so impressive!
- The animated figure features an extensive motion profile of 24 different body movements and facial expressions, mimicking Robbie Coltrane’s exact motions as Hagrid from the Harry Potter film series
- A digital scan of Robbie Coltrane’s mouth was used to create Hagrid’s teeth
- Hagrid’s entire face was meticulously sculpted by hand
- Hagrid’s costume was designed by the same team that created his on-screen wardrobe
- Robbie Coltrane recorded a custom script for Hagrid in this new adventure
- And the height of the animated figure is 7 feet 6 inches tall – exactly proportional to Hagrid in the Harry Potter film series.
Universal’s newest attraction, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, will open at Universal’s Islands of Adventure on June 13, 2019!
