Today the exciting announcement was made that the Wizarding World of Harry Potter will have its grand opening at Universal Studios Hollywood on April 7th, 2016.

To help reveal the date, the park invited special guest Evanna Lynch, who played Luna Lovegood in the Potter films, to the new area to help out:

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:

They did a really great job on this commercial!  It doesn't take much to understand the massive impact that the Potter addition will have on Universal Studios Hollywood - this is going to be a game-changer for the park just like it was in Orlando.

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.
