Universal Studios Hollywood has confirmed that ‘Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter,’ featuring a holiday projection show on Hogwarts Castle like the one announced over a month for Universal Orlando, will be coming to the west coast park this year.
Testing has only recently begun for Universal Studios Hollywood’s ‘Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle’ projection show, which will begin nightly performances on June 23, but we now know that show will switch out with a Christmas themed version in time for the holiday season. The Hogwarts Castle projection shows were inspired by the one-time-only presentation created for the Wizarding World’s grand opening in 2016. (Note that the new castle shows will only feature projections and music, but no fireworks.)
As night falls on Hogsmeade village, the familiar sounds of Harry Potter music will resonate throughout The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Multiple times an evening, colorful projection mapping will illuminate Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry with dimensional animations that melodically dance across Hogwarts castle in tandem to a musical arrangement from of the Harry Potter movies.
In addition to the projection show, Hogsmeade village will also feature festive décor uniquely themed to each of the individual storefronts, along with holiday-themed food and beverages including hot Butterbeer.
