Universal got official approval to open the highly anticipated “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” at their theme park in Hollywood. Universal Studios Hollywood just released the official announcement on the Evolution Plan which is great news for diehard movie fans and it also interesting to see how this will affect the city of LA, creating over 2k construction jobs in the area.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood will be a fully immersive experience for the entire family designed to bring the Harry Potter fiction and films to life with impeccable detail and authenticity. Similar to the dynamic Universal Orlando Resort themed land that opened in 2010, the Hollywood experience will be faithful to the visual landscape of the fiction and films, including Hogwarts castle that will serve as the centerpiece of the impressively themed environment. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a collaboration between Warner Bros. Entertainment and Universal Parks and Resorts.
On the Universal Studios lot, NBCUniversal will upgrade existing production facilities and add new capabilities to better respond to the needs of television production. In addition, NBCUniversal is looking to create modern offices that will house everything from post-production services to traditional office space.
As a family who loves Universal Studios we can’t wait for the new additions to one of our favorite Southern California destinations!
