Pack your bags and your Hogwarts acceptance letters, witches and wizards! The Wizarding World at Universal Studios Japan is bringing guests of all ages delight and magic in a captivating new show in Spring 2019.

To commemorate the fifth anniversary of the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Universal Studios Japan, the theme park is launching a brand new projection show next Spring. The show will use projection-mapping technology (much like the shows we have seen at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort in the United States) to bring the excitement of the “Harry Potter” films to life.


The amazing projection-mapping technology used in the show will impress fans of the film and fans of the theme park. Hogwarts Castle will be virtually transformed with an array of dazzling lights, colors, special effects, and music from the film franchise. Each of the four Hogwarts houses (Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin) will be represented in the show, uniquely displaying house pride and encouraging guests to do the same.

Universal Studios Japan has yet to announce the premiere date for the new Hogwarts Magical Celebration show, but we’re sure that local fans and tourists alike are itching to find out more.

Hogwarts Magical Celebration isn’t the first nighttime show to premiere at Universal Studios Japan. The theme park opened The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade almost five years ago and has been providing guests with entertainment over the last few years. Universal Studios Japan hosts Universal Wonder Christmas events and Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter every year. And in late 2017, the theme park announced the premiere of their spectacular and immersive nighttime parade that would begin entertaining guests this year. With so many unique shows and experiences, it’s no wonder that Universal Studios Japan keeps providing guests with new magic every year.
