New Harry Potter Pics

Islands of Adventure had raised a large piece of the facade of Hogwarts' Castle into place in their new Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It looks like it would be the part of the castle in the left of the above concept art.

Most of the facades for the new area were created off site and are being applied to the buildings already standing in the park. It's a pretty interesting process to watch unfold, I haven't seen an approach quite like it in recent memory. When complete, Hogwarts should be an imposing structure in the back of the Islands of Adventure theme park.

The Orlando Sentinel has some photos you can check out that were just taken today.
