Now that's how you light up a castle! Just as expected, Hogwarts Castle looks super impressive under the new show lighting that's shown in the image up top and in the video.
A new commercial for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter was also released today to coincide with the announcement:

It is also pretty safe to assume that there will be a soft opening of the area well before April 7th. If you haven't already, be sure to check out the official website for Universal Studios Hollywood's Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
