Dark Arts Illuminations Coming to Hogwarts Castle

Dark Arts Illuminations Coming to Hogwarts Castle

It has been announced that  Hogwarts Castle at Universal Studios Orlando and the Wizarding World of Harry will have a new Projector Illumination show later this year.

This is the third show to come to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and although it will be similar to previous shows it will hbe slightly more sinister.

The show will feature the dark wizards, creatures and Dementors who have tormented Harry Potter throughout his time at Hiogwarts.

The press release says:- As darkness falls on Hogwarts castle, Dementors™, Death Eaters and other unspeakable creatures from Aragog and Mountain Trolls to Thestrals will cloak the castle with sinister images from the darker side of magic—even conjuring the visage of Lord Voldemort™ himself, until the Patronus spell—one of the most famous, difficult and powerful defense of the Dark Arts charms in the wizarding world—is cast.

The “Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle” will be accompanied by an exclusive musical arrangement that will emanate in a surround sound environment. It was conducted by prolific arranger William Ross and recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra in London, based on the original scores composed for the film series created by Academy Award winning composer John Williams.

It’s going to be a fantastic end to your time in the theme park, what a finale
