Dementors Attack Universal Studio Japan During New Harry Potter Nighttime Spectacular

On Wednesday April 21, 2017, a large scale nighttime spectacular, will debut in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Japan. Guests will be immersed in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World as the students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry fight off Dementors who descend across the Black Lake for a one-of-a-kind show that’ll leave fans surprised and excited. On the same day, guests can experience new Wand Magic in Hogsmeade village.

The night show in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will use projection mapping to bring the magic and wonder of Harry Potter to life in a way never before seen at Universal Studios Japan. The immersive show unfolds above the Black Lake with Hogwarts castle serving as the backdrop and focal point. The technology will light up the night sky as Dementors fly ominously along the castle.

Opening on the same day as the night show, are new Wand Magic locations where guests can experience the joy of casting spells. Following the Magical Wand Map, guests can practice their magic throughout the land from the moment they encounter the Hogwarts Express conductor to when they approach Hogwarts castle. Wand Assistants will be on hand to assist new witches and wizards as they try new spells.
