Hogwarts is coming to Hollywood! Universal Studios Hollywood have announced that it plans to open its own “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” themed attraction.

Following the success of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort, the Hollywood version is expected to be every bit as impressive as what has been created in Orlando, as well as being faithful to the visual landscape of the films.

With the spectacular Hogwarts Castle as its centrepiece, the new Hollywood attraction is expected to transform family tourism in Los Angeles for decades to come.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has been immensely popular with fans since it debuted in Orlando in June 2010, bringing the stories of Harry Potter and his friends to life in new and magical ways. Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has expressed her excitement at the popularity of the attraction, as well as the prospective Hollywood version.

It is also believed that plans are also afoot to significantly expand The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort, although details of this are not yet confirmed.
