What an illuminating video! I certainly look forward to visiting the park but can already state with confidence that Universal Studios succeeded in replicating the sets of the movies with a remarkable precision, ease, and impressiveness.

“The promise in the beginning was that this experience-the Wizarding World- would look like the movies”

They certainly kept that promise well! It looks amazing!

What a brilliant video! Adding the crew of Harry Potter and asking for their opinions was a great way to encourage people to come to Wizarding World. I can’t wait till it actually opens! It’s going to be amazing!
