The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Japan is doing it yet again, as the all new Dementor Attack show made its world premiere on Tuesday evening. The new show takes guests into the world of Harry Potter as the village of Hogsmeade and Hogwarts Castle come under attack from an army of Dementors.
The show is an amazing addition to the already popular Wizarding World. It uses projection technology to bring hundreds of Dementors to life. The show also mixes live actors to bring the story to life in an amazing way. Special effects “freeze” the lake as danger approaches and puppets mixed with live actors make for a dazzling, and somewhat scary experience.

The new show comes just as Universal Orlando has announced their own Christmas castle show. Could we see this show in Orlando eventually? It’s very probable, and would make for an amazing new addition.
The new show is rather short, but that feels like it’s by design. The Dementor attack doesn’t feel like it’s meant to be a permanent addition, and it definitely doesn’t have the scope of a “nighttime spectacular”. However, it definitely looks like a great show of technology and storytelling that could be expanded at a later time.

What do you think of the new show? We really can’t wait to make the trip to Japan to see it in person!
