Posted by EdwardTLC

Universal Orlando has released a new image from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction, showing the brick archway entrance to Hogsmeade. Now available in our Image Galleries, this high res image showcases what appears to be a wrought iron sign reading “Hogsmeade,” the image also features the crooked, towering, and snow-covered skyline of the magical village. An accompanying caption for the sign reads:

As guests pass through the arch into Hogsmeade at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, they will be immediately transported to a world of wonder, excitement and adventure. While exploring the cobbled streets of the highly themed environment, they will encounter iconic locations from the Harry Potter books and films, like the Hogwarts Express, Ollivanders and the majestic Hogwarts castle.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is set to have its grand opening on June 18, 2010. Stay close to TLC for the very latest!

I know it's not related to the picture mentioned in this news story, but when clicking on the link I also saw the picture of Hagrid's hut. It reminded me how I wish the hut was made of wood not stone, as it is described in Jo's books! I know it is specifically referred to as a wood house in book one (when discussing that Hagrid is raising a dragon in a wooden house) and book six (when it is torched by Death Eaters). I guess they've modeled the buildings of Hogwarts after the WB versions of them!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Exciting and awesome!Avatar ImageEmmaline10248 says: coolAvatar ImageToNkS_rip says: yay and everything, but thats not anything new, reallyAvatar ImageFullofWrackspurts says: Oh man I can't wait to go.
