First it was Death Eaters – now Dementors.

Following a successful Halloween event, Universal Studios Japan has announced a new nighttime show in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter will bring the magic of the popular movie series to life via projection mapping across the night sky.

Around the park’s Black Lake and Hogwarts castle, theme park guests will find Dementors flying ominously across the castle.

In addition, new “wand magic” has appeared, allowing guests to cast spells of fire and snow.

Rumors recently swirled around a similar show opening at Universal Studios Hollywood, but nothing has been announced.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter did receive quite the nighttime spectacular when it first opened in Hollywood:


The new nighttime show and entertainment will debut on April 21st, continuing into November at Universal Studios Japan.
