Warner Bros. and Universal Parks and Resorts are bringing The Wizarding World of Harry Potter to Universal Studios Hollywood.
The two companies also announced plans to significantly expand the original Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction, which debuted at Universal’s Orlando Resort in June 2010.
“I am delighted that The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has been so popular with fans since the opening in Orlando last year and I am sure that the teams at Universal and Warner Bros. will bring their expertise and attention to detail to Hollywood to make this new experience equally as exciting,” said author J.K. Rowling.
A “majestic” Hogwarts castle will serve as the centerpiece at Universal Studios Hollywood, which will also include shops and a restaurant faithful to the Harry Potter films.
Today’s news was toasted with a round of Butterbeer, as seen in the press photo above. Full details of the expansion in Orlando will be announced at a later date.
