Muggles and No-Majs Rejoice: Big Wizarding World of Harry Potter News to Be Revealed!

If you’ve been attempting to use Legilimency on members of the Universal Studios team who have been preparing the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Hollywood for its grand opening, you can stop working so hard!

Announced today on its official Twitter account, Universal Studios Hollywood will reveal some very big news regarding the opening of Hogsmeade in just one week.

Last month, the Hogwarts Express conductor provided fans a virtual tour through the magic of the Internet with cooperation of the No-Maj/Muggle site YouTube. We’re almost sure that Arthur Weasley watched in fascination as the video was uploaded!

In exactly one week on December 8, we expect that the opening date of the new park will be revealed on the official Universal Studios Hollywood YouTube channel, which you can check out here.

Not much more is known about the “big news” to be revealed other than the opening date, but we’re sure that fans of the theme park and the Harry Potter universe are as anxious as we are to find out what the Universal Studios team has stuffed up their wizarding robes, should they decide to pull a Hagrid and let a few more details slip.

You can read the brief press release below, and don’t forget to follow Universal on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to keep up with all the latest news!
