Video: Universal Orlando Celebrates One Year of Diagon Alley at London King’s Cross!

A few weeks ago we learned that the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley would be celebrating their one-year anniversary at King’s Cross station in London! To mark the occasion, Diagon Alley was showcased in 3D street art, or “anamorphic” art, which is a piece of two-dimensional artwork that looks 3D when completed. Fans were able to “enter” Diagon Alley and take a photo to commemorate the moment.

A video has been released showing how the artwork was created and put into place at King’s Cross in London, as well as guests taking photos complete with Potter regalia!  You can watch the video below.
