New Harry Potter Nighttime Light Show Coming to Universal Studios Hollywood

On June 23, Universal Studios Hollywood will unveil a brand-new nighttime light show that will be projected onto the Hogwarts Castle at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Last spring on opening night of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Hollywood, there was a light show that dazzled spectators with projections and fireworks. The opening show was so well received that Universal decided they wanted to make something comparable to that happen on a nightly occurrence.

Since then, Universal has been hard at work creating a show to play every night, and it is something the Universal Studios Hollywood team seems to be really excited about. In a quote in The Los Angeles Times, the senior manager of audio and visual production of Universal Studios Hollywood, Stacey Quinealty said, “We really wanted the guests to have that bone-chilling moment and go, ‘Wow, this is something I’ve never experienced before.’”


Legendary composer John Williams “created the light show’s original arrangement, which is a medley of music pulled from the films.” The music will surround and completely immerse the guests with a massive sound system that promises “eight models of speakers and 3-D projection mapping” which means, “guests will experience the show differently depending on where they watch from.”
