“The Nighttime Lights” Return to Hogwarts Castle at Universal Studios Hollywood in March


The Nighttime Lights took Hogwarts Castle by storm last summer as west coast Harry Potter fans stormed the small park in record numbers. Luckily the popular show will be turning for the busy month of March for guests to get another look at the popular castle show.


As night falls on Hogsmeade village, “The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle” shines brightly with an awe-inspiring spectacle that showcases the four houses of Hogwarts: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin and culminates with awesome beams of lights that fan into the night sky. The colorful state-of-the-art light display and special effects projection is accompanied by a special musical arrangement created by Academy Award-winning composer John Williams based on his original scores composed for the film series. The musical arrangement that emanates in a surround sound environment was conducted by prolific arranger William Ross and recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra in London.

This is a limited time engagement so the show will take place only on the following dates in March, the 3rd, 4th, 10th, 11th, 17th, 18th and the 24th-31st.

Last summer we had the chance to talk to one of the creatives behind the show just before its Hollywood debut.
