Construction photos: Hogsmeade taking shape at Wizarding World in Hollywood

Construction on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood is now well underway, and some new photos show Hogsmeade and Hogwarts coming along nicely!

Sheet metal roofs have been placed on many of the buildings, and even some chimney supports can be seen poking out. Meanwhile, Hogwarts Castle, which will be home to Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, is now several stories high and continuing to grow.

The Wizarding World at Universal Studios Hollywood is set to open in 2016.

Do these photos make you excited for the grand opening? Will you be visiting when construction is completed?

I have been a fan of Harry since 2000, a fan of MuggleNet since 2005, and a MuggleNet team member since 2013. I believe in the power of stories to bring people together, and nothing does that quite like Harry Potter. I’m an annoyingly proud Canadian and live in Toronto.
