Universal Studios Japan will debut Universal Spectacle Night Parade – Best of Hollywood in 2018, which will celebrate Harry Potter and other favorite characters with “world’s first” next-generation elements that promise to “revolutionize” the traditional parade-watching experience.
The Universal Spectacle Night Parade – Best of Hollywood will celebrate 4 of Hollywood’s most fan favorite film franchises: J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter series, Despicable Me’s Minions, the dinosaurs of Jurassic World, and (making their Universal Studios Japan debut in the parade) Transformers, the born-in-Japan entertainment brand with its popular toys, games, animation and feature films.
Park guests will be completely enveloped and fully immersed in this brand new parade, which incorporates projection mapping visible to all guests along entire 587-meter parade route, as well as projection mapping on parade floats themselves.
