New Video: Construction on Hogwarts Castle for Wizarding World of Harry Potter (Updated)


Oct 12, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

As a follow to the post very early this morning, there is now new quality video online showing the progress being made at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter currently under construction in Orlando, Florida. Thanks to Attractions Magazine, you can see some video of the work being done and how much progress has been made on building the giant Hogwarts Castle and surrounding sections of the new Harry Potter theme park attraction which is due to open next spring. UPDATE: Thanks to channel 13 in Orlando, we can now see this very cool overhead video of the construction, especially of the giant castle of Hogwarts.

Thanks Pam!

Avatar Imagealicia00 says: wow i am getting excitedAvatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: will check in a sec =)Avatar ImageLos_Boy says: I am just curious as to why stores like Olivandors and places like The Owlery are being placed in Hogsmead? Olivanders is in Diagon Alley and the Owlery is at the very top of Hogwarts. Doesn't make sense as I was told that future growth will include Diagon Alley. Other than that, the place looks great.Avatar Imagebettb says: CAN NOT WAITAvatar Imagealegria35 says: awesome!Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: I'd love to go there. I'll have to scrape together some big bucks to do it though. I'll see all of you there some day. Avatar ImageFresca says: This looks amazing.

This is going to be so awesome, though I wish they really could have done everything full scale. I'm quite upset that they're using forced perspective in Hogsmeade, especially since it looks like they are using it inside in The Three Broomsticks. Forced perspective should NEVER be used inside. Hopefully one day a full scale Hogwarts will be built in Scotland that is fully fledged; where you can walk into every room in the place; not a classroom, common room, or broom closet missing.Avatar Imageforlornx says: WOWAvatar ImageSmitch says: Eeeeeeeee! Or, Squeeeee! Avatar ImageGryffindor Cutie says: I can't wait to go, it's going to be a dream come true!
