First construction images of Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Japan released

MuggleNet reported just a few days ago that construction had begun at Universal Studios Hollywood for their new Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction, and it seems Universal Studios Japan at Osaka has followed suit!

The images, which can be viewed here, show a large building under construction, likely Hogwarts itself!

The attraction, which is set to open in late 2014, was first announced by Universal Studios Japan back in May.

Which park, the one in Osaka or in Hollywood, are you most looking forward to opening? Is it worth making the trek if you’ve already been to the Wizarding World in Orlando? Let us know in the comments below!

Thanks to SnitchSeeker for the tip!

I've been making magic at MuggleNet since 2012, when I first joined the staff as a News intern. I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
