The NighttimeLights at Hogwarts Castle Hufflepuff WWoHP at USH

This week, “The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle” returned to Universal Studios Hollywood for the summer. CineMovie was invited to the festivities to experience the impressive light show. Watch the Harry Potter-inspired show below. 

As night falls on Hogsmeade village, “The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle” shines brightly with an awe-inspiring spectacle that showcases the four houses of Hogwarts: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin, and culminates with awesome beams of lights that fan into the night sky. The colorful state-of-the-art light display and special effects projection is accompanied by a special musical arrangement created by Academy® award-winning composer John Williams based on his original scores composed for the film series. The musical arrangement that emanates in a surround sound environment was conducted by prolific arranger William Ross and recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra in London.

New apparel and food items will also welcome visitors to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. We tried the new Butterbeer dessert, the Butterbeer cream which was a super sweet treat. For more of the new items, go to Summer Comes To 'The Wizarding World of Harry Potter' article.

Inspired by J.K. Rowling’s compelling stories and characters that were brought to life in the Warner Bros. films, “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” at Universal Studios Hollywood is a masterful recreation, faithful to the visual landscape of the fiction and films, including as its iconic focal point, Hogwarts castle.
